Dueling rallies in Iran turn violent

Dueling rallies in Iran turn violent

TEHRAN, Iran – Hard-liners attacked senior pro-reform leaders in the streets as tens of thousands marched in competing mass demonstrations by the opposition and government supporters. Opposition protesters, chanting “death to the dictator,” hurled stones and bricks in clashes with security forces.

The opposition held its first major street protests since mid-July, bringing out thousands in demonstrations in several parts of the capital. In some cases only several blocks away, tens of thousands marched in government-sponsored rallies marking an annual anti-Israel commemoration.

The commemoration, known as Quds Day, is a major political occasion for the government — a day for it to show its anti-Israeli credentials and its support for the Palestinians. During a speech for the rallies, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad railed against Israel and the West, questioning whether the Holocaust occurred and calling it a pretext for occupying Arab land. Quds is the Arabic word for Jerusalem.

But the opposition was determined to turn the day into a show of its survival and continued strength despite a fierce three-month-old crackdown against it since the disputed June 12 presidential election.

Dueling rallies in Iran turn violent

I have been at odds with quite a few really good bloggers lately, great Conservative bloggers, Facebook friends and so forth. They change their screen names to green colored fonts, they place a green tint on their profile pictures. They fly Iranian flags. They implore everyone to support Freedom in Iran.

They are very confused I am afraid.

Freedom in Iran is NOT in our hands. We’ve got all we can do to keep America afloat given the morons we have in the Obama administration. Czars, socialists, anti-American racists, crooks, uh, yeah, crooks, ACORN and their ilk.

How well do ANY of you remember the Carter administration? Do you remember what the most defining part OF the Carter administration was?

That would be the Iranian hostage crisis, and his lack of ANY success in dealing with it.

The Iranian hostage crisis was a diplomatic crisis between Iran and the United States where 53 Americans were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981, after a group of Islamist students and militants took over the American embassy in support of the Iranian Revolution. SOURCE

The people that gave us the hostage crisis in 1979 are the same people that are in power today, and some of those same people are also on the opposing side, referred to simply as, The Opposition.

The Opposition wants to take control of Iraq, and for many, that means, hey, we need to support these guys, it’s an attempted regime change. And they are right, it would be a regime change. A change from one extreme bunch of Islamic moonbats to another. It’s just that simple. A change of regime in Iran won’t bring about a democracy any more than taking Saddam out of the picture did for Iraq.

In both Iraq and Afghanistan, once the leader in place was deposed, he was merely replaced with a bit more acceptable War Lord. And that is exactly what Hamid Karzai and Nouri al-Maliki are, the smartest, most powerful and the most pro-U.S. War Lord that could be found. The minute we leave Afghanistan, Karzai will be a page in history. As soon as we exit Iraq, al-Malaki becomes the next Saddam.

Iranian diplomat abducted in Pakistan

Iranian diplomat abducted in Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — An Iranian diplomat was kidnapped Thursday in Peshawar near Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas, one day after an American aid worker and his driver were killed in an ambush in the same city.

A Pakistani bodyguard for the diplomat was killed in the latest attack. The Iranian and his guard were driving over a narrow bridge when two armed men blocked their way with a car and opened fire, said Banaras Khan, a police investigator in Peshawar who cited a witness. The attackers dragged the diplomat into their car before fleeing.

The dusty, sprawling city of Peshawar, on the eastern edge of the tribal region bordering Afghanistan, was until recently considered relatively safe for foreigners. But residents say crime and militancy are on the rise, and the Iranian could have been kidnapped for ransom.

Pockets of the nearby tribal region have become a refuge for al-Qaeda and Taliban militants and the area is considered a possible hiding place for Osama bin Laden and his deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri. Fighters use the northwestern region as a staging group for cross-border attacks on U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan as well as within Pakistan.

The semi-autonomous tribal region has been targeted by a bloody Pakistani military offensive since August that officials say has killed some 1,500 suspected militants and by U.S. missile attacks from unmanned drones launched from Afghanistan. Neither the attacks nor aid efforts for the impoverished tribal areas appear to be stemming the violence.

Anyone that reads here very often already knows. What do I love to write about?? What is my favorite topic?? Yep, that’s right, FEEL GOOD stories! I just love FEEL GOOD stories, and this one gave me a warm and fuzzy all over!!

What we see in this story is the classic *man bites dog*, go ahead and piss off Iran, that is exactly what they need to do. LMAO. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you!!

And here’s a prediction, these idiots will discover that they have just kidnapped an Iranian, it has to happen, and once they do, they will crap in their pajamas trying to get him back into Iranian hands unharmed. The responsible *raghead* will be summarily executed for this transgression against Iran and Iran will send even more arms and explosives to these Taliban, al-Qaida, whatever the hell they are called in that particular region of the flea infested sand pile.

Yeah, this really is a FEEL GOOD story, I wish it would happen a lot more often.

Iran now has 6,000 centrifuges for uranium

July 26th, 2008 . by TexasFred
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday that Iran now possesses 6,000 centrifuges, a significant increase in the number of uranium-enriching machines in its nuclear program, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

The new figure is double the 3,000 centrifuges Iran had previously said it was operating in its uranium enrichment plant in Natanz.

“Islamic Iran today possesses 6,000 centrifuges,” Ahmadinejad told university professors in the northeastern city of Mashhad.

The assertion that Iran has reached that goal is certain to further rankle the United States and other world powers. Washington and its allies have been demanding a halt to Iran’s enrichment out of fear it is intent on using the technology to develop weapons.

Iran vehemently denies those allegations and says it is interested in enrichment only for its nuclear power program.

Report: Iran now has 6,000 centrifuges for uranium

To put this in the most simple terms, Iran is lying.

Iran has made their declaration, they have made their intent crystal clear, they are planning on wiping Israel OFF the map, that is their goal and that is their intent and unless Iran is stopped, they will make good on that threat.  

The White House said that Iran’s pronouncement does not facilitate a resolution to the nuclear standoff.

If Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were to make a direct threat against Bush the Elder I am certain that Bush the Younger wouldn’t hesitate to take immediate action against Iran.

He took us to Iraq on the idea that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction, and as of late there was the yellow cake that was moved from Iraq.

Many of the Bush Bot crowd claimed vindication because of that yellow cake, but the yellow cake itself is NOT a WMD, it is only a seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment. I don’t believe Iraq had all the tools in place to conduct that enrichment. Iran does.

I would think that the fact that Iran does have the tools at hand to conduct uranium enrichment, that could, and likely should be considered a viable threat to the development of a true WMD, a thermonuclear device that Iran may very well have a delivery system already in place that is capable of hitting Israel.  

Iran already is under three sets of U.N. sanctions for its refusal to suspend enrichment.

Yeah, that’s gonna do the trick, the old U.N. sanctions against Iran trick. Works every time. Look at how well U.N. sanctions worked in Iraq, and Darfur, and, well, anywhere else the U.N. placed sanctions.

If ever there was a nation that needed it’s potential nuclear capabilities decimated, Iran is the place, but Ahmadinejad hasn’t threatened Daddy yet, so Junior can’t do anything.

Hell, let’s face facts, Junior can’t even pronounce nuclear.
