Gee, maybe the Iranian people don’t want to be incinerated over Ahmanutjob’s hallucinations. Who knew?
Might cause a virgin shortage. Who wants to die if all they get are 71 or 70.5 virgins, or have to settle for technical virgins?
Maybe the Koran has loopholes. Shame they don’t have good Jewish lawyers to find them.
They could encourage more dead people to go for the ‘boys like pearls,’ thereby freeing up more virgins. Perhaps some sort of a...well, no not tax incentive—if there are taxes in the hereafter, why bother? More fresh spring of water, maybe?

I was serving in Tehran when the insurgency started that brought about the 1979 revolution. The reality is the people wanted a western style democratic (not to be confused with Democrats) republic and that was the tact that Jimmuh and the Mullahs used to stir the people.
They were sold short and they were just one Presidential announcement of support away from taking their country back from the liars and despots (Jimmuh included) who sold them down the river because the Shah would not play footsie. Obama failed them and the green revolution was squashed.
This type of attack was typical of the terrorists of the time and my take is the Persians took time to regroup to formulate a campaign of one drip at a time to bring down the Mullahs. They are biding their time to react when it is clear a new administration has been elected and are banking on it to be supportive of their cause. I have no doubt that if Newt is elected, the final solution for the Mulllahs will be at hand.
Another natural gas leak tragedy.
Tragedy? It puts a spring in my step.
Nice to hear from someone who was there. Your reporting of it is the same as what my understanding of the situation was exactly. I have good friends who left Iran long before the Shah fell and they were always so appalled at what had happened to their homeland.
