Push every button

ahmadinejad_lg-16-738322.jpgFor those who don’t think Iran will yield to any diplomacy, what is the preferable course for any action?

1. Nuclear bunker buster first strike?
Absolute last resort.

2. Conventional first strike with Stealth?
Conventional

3. Special Forces sabotage on the ground
Risky, and matches our intelligence against their own turf. Can anyone say ‘finding the WMD will be a slam dunk’?

4. Ultimatum in Private backchannel?
If it didn’t work with a secular Saddam, why would that work here?

2, 3, and 4? Maybe the Special Forces could get around in the chaos, but we’d still probably see some of them paraded around on TV

Murdered For Selling Land To Jews

An Arab man accused of selling his property in the fiercely contested region of east Jerusalem to Jewish settlers was buried in a traitor’s grave yesterday after Palestinian police found his body riddled with bullets in a burnt-out car.

Israeli police believe that Muhammad Abu al-Hawa, 48, whose body showed signs of torture, was murdered by Palestinians outraged by the sale to Jews of the three upper floors of a four-storey property on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

The al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades claimed responsibility, saying that a similar fate awaited traitors who sold to Jews land or property in Arab east Jerusalem, which Palestinians still hope will be their capital.

Mr Abu al-Hawa’s family protested his innocence. One of his brothers, Mahmoud, 42, said that the property, and two adjacent apartment blocks, were sold to an Arab land dealer who sold them a Jordanian investment company.

Arab residents of the A-Tur neighbourhood were incensed when Jewish settlers moved into the properties two weeks ago and have since clashed repeatedly with Israeli police.

A restaurant owned by Mr Abu al-Hawa’s family was torched and Mr Abu al-Hawa was repeatedly summoned for questioning by the Palestinian Authority security forces. On Wednesday, in a telephone call to his wife and brother, he claimed to have found documents to prove his innocence. He told them that he was driving to Jericho to clear his name.

Three hours later he was found in Jericho, shot seven times in the head and chest and with a badly bruised face. He was buried in an outcast’s grave near Jericho after residents of A-Tur barred his burial there.
Link...

Just as a note, this Times article refers to the Jewish family that bought the homes as "settlers". They didn't create a settlement but rather purchased a piece of land with an existing building on it. So why "settlers"?

The missing money quotes from Iran's Speeches Friday

Does anything here sound a mite familiar?

“The United States is a decaying power. Don’t be intimidated by their threats. They don’t have the stamina to do anything”

From the Times of Oman:
US decaying power: Iran

Khomeini.jpg
TEHRAN — Iran’s leadership yesterday branded the United States a “decaying power,” brushing off Washington’s call for strong UN Security Council action to stop the Islamic regime’s controversial nuclear drive.

The tough rhetoric came after the regime also dismissed a personal appeal from UN atomic watchdog chief Mohammed ElBaradei to freeze uranium enrichment and calm suspicions it is seeking the atomic bomb.

Gee, I never heard all this before....maybe they don't represent the mullahs....

A little round the web roundup on Iran for the week from Geostrategy Direct

Iran deploys ballistic missiles within range of U.S. bases in Iraq

Iran has quietly deployed its Shihab-2 medium-range ballistic missiles within striking distance of major U.S. military bases in Iraq. The Shihab-2s, with a range of about 700 kilometers, were moved west from bases near Teheran toward the border with Iraq earlier this year.

Western intelligence sources said Teheran would use the Shihab-2 in case of any U.S. air strike on Iran. Iran would probably not use its aging military aircraft to try to defend air space, they said.

The sources said Iran has acquired the capability to install chemical warheads on the Shihab-2. Iran operates two chemical production plants and has developed weapons of mass destruction warheads for nearly all of its medium- and intermediate-range missiles.

Last week Iran completed its "Holy Prophet" military exercise in the Gulf region with a show of bravado. Still, the sources said, the mullah leadership is more jittery than ever. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has found that telephones and offices in contact with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were bugged. These included the Interior and Foreign ministries and other cabinet departments.

The bugging was probably not the work of the United States. Rival cells within the mullah leadership have been spying on Ahmadinejad.

Has Al Qaeda Conceded Defeat In Iraq?

Lt. Gen. John R. Vines, who commands the XVIII Airborne Corps says they have:


Al Qaeda in Iraq and its presumed leader, Abu Musab Zarqawi, have conceded strategic defeat and are on their way out of the country, a top U.S. military official contended yesterday.

The group's failure to disrupt national elections and a constitutional referendum last year "was a tactical admission by Zarqawi that their strategy had failed," said Lt. Gen. John R. Vines, who commands the XVIII Airborne Corps.

"They no longer view Iraq as fertile ground to establish a caliphate and as a place to conduct international terrorism," he said in an address at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Gen. Vines' statement came as news broke that coalition and Iraqi forces had killed an associate of Osama bin Laden's during an early morning raid near Abu Ghraib about two weeks ago.

Rafid Ibrahim Fattah aka Abu Umar al Kurdi served as a liaison between terrorist networks and was linked to Taliban members in Afghanistan, Pakistani-based extremists and other senior al Qaeda leaders, the military said yesterday.

In the past six months, al Kurdi had worked as a terrorist cell leader in Baqouba. Prior to that, he had traveled extensively Pakistan, Iran and Iraq and formed a relationship with al Qaeda senior leaders in 1999 while in Afghanistan.

He also had ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, formed while he was in Iran and Pakistan, and joined the jihad in Afghanistan in 1989, the military said. He was killed March 27.

Gen. Vines said the foreign terrorists had made a strategic mistake when they tried to intimidate and deny Iraqis a way to vote.

"I believe Zarqawi discredited himself with the Iraqi people because of his willingness to slaughter Iraqi people," he said.


Let's hope this is true. But, let us also ask ourselves if there, perhaps, could be another reason Al Qaeda may not want to be in Iraq right about now.

Hmm. Can you think of one reason?

I bet you can.

Alright, Let's Get This Shit Out In The Open

I love this blog, because I think everyone here is a good writer, and some are exceptional writers. Everyone here brings their own perspective, geographical and ideological to the fight against the Jihad.

This is great, as far as I am concerned.

Now, lately, I've been getting criticized for inviting Eteraz to contribute here at IBA. I have also taken a lot of criticism, from the very beginning of this blog, and before, for the fact that I hold out hope for Islam to reform itself.

I can understand why some would criticize me. However, I want to point out a couple of things.

1) There is a living, breathing form of reformed and peaceful Islam at work on the Earth this very day. It is called Sufi Islam. Sufi's are peaceful (find me an example of a Sufi terrorist, and I'll show you a guy whose friends put some Angel Dust in his ganja), and the emphasis of their faith is on love. Look it up. You'll see what I mean.

2) The first five books of the Bible (the Torah) call for the stoning of adulterers, apostates, and homosexuals, as well as Islam. However, Jews moved beyond that. If Judaism could reform itself, why can't Islam?

3) Eteraz is against violent Jihad. Eteraz believes that women should have equal rights. Eteraz is againstt the imposition of Sharia. Eteraz believes in the separation of church and state. Eteraz wants Western Democracy to spread. And, Eteraz puts these thoughts down in pulsing pixels for the whole world to see. He is a Muslim making an attempt at reforming Islam. So, what do you find wrong with him?

Do we agree with everything Eteraz says? No, of course, most of us do not. Sometimes, Eteraz seems to work harder as an apologist for his faith, than as a reformer of his faith.

But, you know what? So do I. I know, for instance, fellow IBA Founder Jonz thinks I'm full of shit, because of some of the long emails I have sent him explaining my Christian worldview. Does he want to kick me off IBA because I seem unreasonable to him on the subject of my faith? No.

Because, I am not a violent fanatic.

So, anyway, let's keep fighting together. If you guys want us to change anything, let me, or J, or Jonz know.

Keep up the crusading.

Ahmadinejad: Israel "Will Soon" Be Annihilated

There you go. He couldn't make it clearer, could he?

His words have such a boldness, you have to wonder how damn "close" they are to the actual bomb. Could they have it already?


President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Israel a "permanent threat" to the Middle East that will "soon" be liberated. He also appeared to again question whether the Holocaust really happened.

"Like it or not, the Zionist regime is heading toward annihilation," Ahmadinejad said at the opening of a conference in support of the Palestinians. "The Zionist regime is a rotten, dried tree that will be eliminated by one storm."

The land of Palestine, he said, referring to the British mandated territory that includes all of Israel, Gaza and the West Bank, "will be freed soon."

He did not say how this would be achieved, but insisted to the audience of at least 900 people: "Believe that Palestine will be freed soon."

"The existence of this (Israeli) regime is a permanent threat" to the Middle East, he added.


Meanwhile, lefties are trying to figure out a way to get out of attacking Iran.

A Shortcut To Nukes?

I don't know how reliable this is:
"Apr 14, 2006

"Last night, radio talk show host and former US Justice Department official Mark Levin shocked many listeners when he reported that President Bill Clinton gave nuclear technology to the Iranians in a harebrained scheme.

"He said that the transfer of classified data to Iran was personally approved by then-President Clinton and that the CIA deliberately gave Iranian physicists blueprints for part of a nuclear bomb that likely helped Tehran advance its nuclear weapons development program.

"The CIA, using a double-agent Russian scientist, handed a blueprint for a nuclear bomb to Iran, according to a new book State of War by James Risen, the New York Times reporter, who exposed the Bush administration's controversial NSA spying operation, claims the plans contained fatal flaws designed to derail Tehran's nuclear drive.

"But the deliberate errors were so rudimentary they would have been easily fixed by sophisticated Russian nuclear scientists, the book said.

"The operation, which took place during the Clinton administration in early 2000, was code named Operation Merlin and 'may have been one of the most reckless operations in the modern history of the CIA,' according to Risen...."

Are You An Islamofascist, Or, A Moderate Muslim?

I remember hearing a Muslim man call into a radio show a few months back, very angry that the host dared to use the term "Islamofascist."

"Islam is not fascist," he repeatedly told the host.

Meanwhile, of course, the host attempted to explain to the man that he wasn't saying Islam was fascist, but was, instead, making a distinction between ordinary moderate Muslims, and those who would wage Jihad to kill the infidel.

The man just couldn't get it. It was as if he was constitutionally incapable of understanding the distinction.

Anyway, for those Muslims who are thick, and unable to understand the distinction, I thought I'd attempt here to lay it out in stark terms.

First, understand that we Infidels are human beings, just like you. We don't like to be murdered. We don't like our women to be taken as booty and raped (as Islamofascists do to non-Muslim women in Sudan). We don't like to have our churches and synagogues burned down. Got that?Should be pretty simple.

Now, let's be clear about the definition of an Islamofascist. You are an Islamofascist if you

1) believe there are two camps to the world, Dar al-Harb (House of War), and Dar al-Islam (House of Islam).

2) believe in waging violent Jihad against the Infidels and the Jews.

3) believe that women are equal to half and man, and that your wife is your possession to do with what you please, including murdering her for "dishonoring" your family.

4) want to see Sharia law instituted all over the world, so that adulterers, apostates, and homosexuals are stoned to death for their "crimes."

5) want women to wear Burqas (for anything other than the occasional kinky bedroom play).

So, there you have it. Do you fall into any of those categories. If you do, I want you to leave my country now. Or, if you were born here and as such, enjoy an American citizenship for which you are not grateful, then please, pray to God that He will forgive you, and straighten your mind out, so that you can learn to let people love and live as they will.

Now, here is the definition of a moderate Muslim. You are a moderate Muslim if you

1) believe that all people should be able to live in peace and be free to speak, worship, and live as they please, as long as they do not physically hurt anyone, or steal the property of others.

2) allow for Freedom of Speech, even up to the criticism and mockery of your own religion in the media, and in the streets.

3) just want to work a job, earn money, and take care of your family, and are happy to see others of all religions and ethnicities, doing the same around you everyday.

There, now if you fit into that, then we have no problems, you and I.

However, if you are a moderate Muslim who is

1) willing to tolerate the preaching of violent Jihad in your mosque, and you still give money and attend services,

2) would not turn in Muslims who are planning to kill and maim Infidels,

3) believe the Jews were behind 9/11,

then you are not a moderate Muslim at all. Instead, you are simply an Islamofascist pussy who lacks the courage of your convictions. If you are this, then I ask you, once again, to please leave our country, or, perhaps, to pray that God would forgive you, and straighten out your mind, so that you can learn to live and love, and let others live and love.

I hope we are clear now.

Ultimately, it is up to Muslims how we in the West eventually will come to define Islam. Will you tell us, by your works, that Islam is Islamofascism, or that Islam is peace.

It's up to you.

The left on Iran, when it’s the very premises which are wrong

The claim… the neocons are “framing discussion on Iran”, well no, the neo cons are bringing objective reality to you. It you who perceive anything you disagree with as an attempt to alter perceptions. To you in fact, reality IS perception. Which is to say, if there is nobody around there is no sound in the forest when the tree falls.

Here are the specious, incredible, delusions
06.02.08.Undeniable-X.gif
1. Iran presently has a strong, rational incentive to get nukes.
Bush is planting permanent military bases on Iran's doorstep in Iraq, and trying to proliferate nukes to nearby India. Iran's feeling the heat, and desperately wants to pull a North Korea: get a nuke to keep the neocons at bay.

Rebuttal- Mr. Scher claims via an MSNBC article we are provoking Iran by having permanent bases in Iraq, and therefore Iranians need nukes.
Wrong on the facts and wrong on history.
The permanent bases claim is based on an article which quotes a 19 year old saying it looks to him like we are staying forever, and points to the existence of Burger King, Mcdonald’s as further evidence of permanence etc. Then they show a picture of the Burger king….it’s a trailer, dude, the kind that go right onto an 18 wheeler.
Further and most importantly, the Iranians have been saying what they have been saying since 1979. In 1979 Saddam was a newbie, and we had no bases anywhere except CIA listening posts in northern Iran pointed at the USSR. They asked us to go away and we promptly did.
We are trying to ‘proliferate nukes to INDIA’?
India has been a nuclear power for decades.
Iran’s leaders have since the inception of Islamic Republic, made no secret of their enmity not for the the American govt, but Americans and the way we live. Those who believe otherwise are delusional fanstasists. Do the words ‘Great Satan” mean anything to you? Do you understand the Islamic meaning of these words?

Islam Teaches Muslims to Respect other Religions

One person has been killed and at least 12 others injured by knife-wielding attackers at three churches in northern Egypt, police have said. The attacks happened in Coptic churches in the city of Alexandria.
BBC News

Let's take a peek and see what the holy book says about other religions shall we?

Fight against Christians and Jews "until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low." 9:29

Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. 9:5

I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger. 8:12

Infidel Babe Of The Week - Good Friday Edition


Federica Felini.

When this babe is crusading on camera, she can make even the most hardened atheist Infidels among us, shout out the name of Our Lord.

Imagine what she must do to the already chaotic mind of an Islamofascist. He'll be speaking in tongues, frothing at the mouth, and asking the Lord God to throw him into the river to drown; never to be confronted by such beauty again.

Allah be damned. Only Yahweh could create such a heaven on Earth.

We have the UN backwards, maybe they ARE effective

File this one under history comes full circle.
Very recently Der Spiegel pubished an illuminating poll.
45% of Germans think the USA is more dangerous than Iran. 28% feel the other way around. Germans have expressed this before, and ironically in a similar situation. Mr. Churchill was continually pounded upon for his statements as being a warmonger and endangering world peace. Of course by showing how weak England was and what it would lead to, and insisting that only strength could prevent a malignant power from doing just precisely what malignant powers do, he was forcing those who would rather just work, get the fish and chips and go home to face a dirty job, which was sliding towards them.

So it is today.

Moussaoui should receive the death sentence

The trial of Zacarias Moussaoui may be nearing the end, and plenty of people have already raised good questions of whether this cannibal who was one of the planners of 9-11 and the murder of innocent people should be given the death sentence. Judging from the latest news, this is one more reason why I for one fully support sending Moussaoui to hell and to be subjected to Allah's law, but first to make sure that he's subjected to agonizing torture:
ALEXANDRIA , Va. - Sept. 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui insists he does not want to be executed, but for the second time he took the stand at his death-penalty trial and spouted off in a way that could eliminate any chance for mercy.

Moussaoui mocked the tearful testimony of 9/11 victims and their families and wished for similar attacks every day until America falls. He gave a detailed explanation of his hatred for America, flipping through a Quran on the witness stand trying to find justification for his views.

Moussaoui's testimony Thursday at his death-penalty trial came as defense lawyers sought to show Moussaoui was crazy and prosecutors sought to show he was simply evil.

Both sides made their point at various times, but the most visceral testimony came as Moussaoui again reveled in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, just one day after the jury concluded a week of gut-wrenching testimony from 9/11 families and victims.

Moussaoui called an Army officer who crawled on his belly to safety beneath searing smoke "pathetic" and ridiculed a Navy officer who wept as she described the loss of two colleagues.

"I think it was disgusting for a military person" to cry, Moussaoui said of the testimony of Navy Lt. Nancy McKeown. "She is military, she should expect people at war with her to want to kill her."

Asked if he was happy to hear her sobbing, he said, "Make my day."

Prosecutor Rob Spencer asked Moussaoui: "So you would be happy to see 9/11 again?"

"Every day until we get you," the 37-year-old Frenchman responded with enthusiasm.

At other times, Moussaoui espoused beliefs that simply seemed bizarre. He insisted that President Bush would free him from prison some time before his term ends in 2009, perhaps as part of a prisoner exchange. He said it was revealed to him in a dream, just like his plan to fly a plane into the White House.

Spencer tried several times to get Moussaoui to say he didn't really think it would happen, but Moussaoui was resolute.

"I haven't doubted it for one single second," Moussaoui said.

Moussaoui said he didn't think his previous testimony on March 27, in which he said publicly for the first time that he was to have piloted a fifth plane on 9/11, would hurt him with the jury. That testimony put Moussaoui at the center of the 9/11 plot in a way that prosecutors hadn't even hoped to prove at the trial's outset.

Moussaoui said Allah will protect him as long as he tells the truth, no matter what the jury thinks of him.

Pressed by defense lawyer Gerald Zerkin if he thought he was helping his case, Moussaoui responded: "I was putting my trust in God, so from an Islamic point of view, yes," acknowledging that non-Muslims might view his testimony as harmful.

He denied that he is secretly sabotaging his case as a means to achieve martyrdom through execution. "I want to fight," he said.

He said that if he were in charge of his own defense he might have played up the notion that he could have been used as part of a prisoner exchange for captured American troops.

Moussaoui has taken the stand twice now in his own defense, both times against the advice of his court-appointed lawyers.

Defense lawyers say their client is lying about his role in Sept. 11. They point to four years of denials by Moussaoui of involvement in the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, and a lack of supporting evidence for his new claim. They suggest he either seeks martyrdom or an inflated role in history.

During his 2 1/2 hours on the stand, Moussaoui offered a lengthy explanation of why he hates Americans. Islam requires Muslims to be the world's superpower, he said as he paged through the Quran.

"We have an obligation to be the superpower. You have to be subdued," Moussaoui said. "America is a superpower and you want to eradicate Islam."

He also criticized U.S. support for Israel, which he called "the Jewish state of Palestine." "Every child who has been killed in Palestine has been killed because of you," he said. Israel is "just a missing star in the American flag," he added.

Moussaoui's second act didn't quite captivate the jury in the same way as his first appearance. Jurors did not feel compelled to keep their eyes on him through the duration of his testimony, as they did last month.

The trial resumes Monday. U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema told jurors they will likely begin deliberations early next week.

Moussaoui has already pleaded guilty and a jury has already found him eligible for the death penalty. The jury must now decide whether he should be put to death or be sentenced to life in prison.
It should be more than solidly obvious here that this Moussaoui is pure evil savagery and sadism, the worst Islam can create, and should be sent to the chair, or injected with lethal chemicals, or stood in front of a firing squad, or even get his head cut off with a chainsaw, whatever it takes to rid this world of such an obscene, hateful devil. He has insulted his victims, in ways similar to how one of the four Pakistani brothers who gang-raped a 14-year-old girl in Australia did in court, and should be subjected to a slow, painful death.

One more thing: notice the part where the AP refers to Moussaoui as a "Frenchman"? Let's be perfectly clear here about something: he may have [had] French citizenship, but he is most definitely NOT French in his culture, tradition or religion. In all their political correctness, it seems that the AP would rather describe the monster as a Frenchman than as an Arab, and that is simply obscene. Moussaoui is an ARAB Muslim. Let's avoid confusion here for a change, shall we?

It's time to crack down on the invaders

And if the military is what's needed to round up the illegals and maintain law and order, then, while I'm sure not many would want it to have to come to that, believe it or not, that's what may have to be done - deploy the army to put a stop to illegal immigrants in the US. Heck, that's what even Europe'll have to do if they're to crack down on the Islamofascists who're encroaching upon their continent.

As I noted earlier, some of these illegals in the US have committed acts of violence. Not only that, but they've also been carrying signs smearing the US flag as racist, fascist, and worse. (And see this report from Eyewitness News on how one broke into a house and threatened to kill.)

Joseph Farah fears that the illegals could eventually end up rioting. Much as I hate to say, he may be right; there's a very grave chance that they could be a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. And if the US authorities don't prepare to act pre-emptively, then as a correspondant to WND who'd worked a policeman in California once said, it'll be like nothing Los Angeles has ever seen before.

A recent poll conducted by Zogby Interactive found that the protests being conducted by illegal aliens are having a negative impact. I'm not surprised. If they don't have citizenship, then their actions aren't just illegitimate, they're also downright absurd, though not as much as the fact that the municipalities allowed the protests to take place.

Hunk of the Week : Good Friday Special



That's right, Jim Caviezel. He's got the appeal and the infidel credibility as well. Not only is he a devoted Christian, but he also played Jesus Himself in The Passion, reenacting some of the key events in the life of Jesus that are denied by Muslims, the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. It's only in other roles and in pictures like this that we realize just how nice Caviezel can look in images not from The Passion. So for those of you celebrating Christian Easter, here's the Good Friday Special Edition of Hunk of the Week. And we infidel babes are not going to be ashamed of enjoying a little eye candy, regardless of how much anger this causes amonsgt the Muslim men out there. This is the West enjoying itself, get used to it. We like our Babes and Hunks, and that's just the way it is. And oh yeah, Nice.

Hollywood Is Made Up A Bunch Of Ingrateful Little Pussies - Why Would We Expect Them To Be Warriors In The Cartoon Jihad


No major figure in Hollywood has ever said a word about the Jihadic murder of filmaker Theo Van Gogh. And, even though Hollywood is a world which is disproportionately high population of Jews, women, and homosexuals, Hollywood, as a body does not acknowledge the threat of Islamofascism.

Hell, I haven't even heard a single Hollywood star, or executive, speak out against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

They only speak out on things which are safe. You know, where they aren't going to get killed.

Anyway, Dhimmidy Central, as you all know, refused to show Mohammed in last nights South Park episode. Well, screw them then, the bunch of petit pussois. Screw them and the cute little French pony they rode in on.

CBS: A Stunning Display Of Dhimmitude And Self-Abasement

This photograph, of an Islamic preacher standing in front of an American flag emblazoned with the Islamic Crescent, is currently on CBS News' website.

Can you believe it? This is the fantasy flag of the Caliphate.

The contents of the article are absolute crap masquerading as journalism. They say Americans have negative impressions of Islam.

Yeah, no kidding.

Ahmadinejad Announces "We Are A Nuclear Country" - Could Have Bomb In 16 Days


Look where our diplomacy has gotten us. From Associated Press:


TEHRAN, Iran - Iran's hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed Thursday that Iran won't back away from uranium enrichment and said the world must treat Iran as a nuclear power. the comments were made as Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, arrived in Tehran for talks aimed at defusing tensions over Iran's nuclear program.

"Our answer to those who are angry about Iran achieving the full nuclear fuel cycle is just one phrase. We say: Be angry at us and die of this anger," the official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

"We won't hold talks with anyone about the right of the Iranian nation (to enrich uranium)."
Ahmadinejad declared on Tuesday that Iran had successfully produced enriched uranium for the first time, a key process in what Iran maintains is a peaceful energy program.


Iran's deputy nuclear chief, Mohammad Saeedi, then said Wednesday that Iran intends to move toward large-scale uranium enrichment involving 54,000 centrifuges, signaling the country's resolve to expand a program the United Nations has demanded it halt.

"Today, our situation has changed completely. We are a nuclear country and speak to others from the position of a nuclear country," IRNA quoted the president as saying Thursday.


Meanwhile, one expert is saying Iran could produce a bomb within 16 days. From Bloomberg, via Drudge:


April 12 (Bloomberg) -- Iran, defying United Nations Security Council demands to halt its nuclear program, may be capable of making a nuclear bomb within 16 days, a U.S. State Department official said.

Iran will move to "industrial scale'' uranium enrichment involving 54,000 centrifuges at its Natanz plant, the Associated Press quoted deputy nuclear chief Mohammad Saeedi as telling state-run television today.

"Using those 50,000 centrifuges they could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in 16 days,'' Stephen Rademaker, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation, told reporters today in Moscow.

Saeedi said 54,000 centrifuges will be able to enrich uranium to provide fuel for a 1,000-megawat nuclear power plant similar to the one Russia is finishing in southern Iran, AP reported.

"It was a deeply disappointing announcement,'' Rademaker said of Ahmadinejad's statement.

Europe Seeks A New "Non-Emotive Lexicon"


The smelly old cat (you know, the one who, really, should have died long ago) sprang to her knees this past week, and began heaving and retching. With eyes popping, and ears straight back, the aged girl really gave quite a performance.

In the end, a pathetic, oily little hairball slithered from her mouth:


European governments should shun the phrase "Islamic terrorism" in favour of "terrorists who abusively invoke Islam", say guidelines from EU officials.

Backed by diplomats and civil servants from the 25 EU members, the officials are drafting a "non-emotive lexicon for discussing radicalisation" to be submitted to Tony Blair and other leaders in June.

The Brussels officials hope the new lexicon, which would not be legally binding, would be adopted by governments and other EU institutions, such as the European Commission and European Parliament.

An EU official said: "The basic idea behind it is to avoid the use of improper words that would cause frustration among Muslims and increase the risk of radicalisation."


It might be time to put the poor thing to sleep.

Possible GOP Split or Splinter

I wrote this the other night, and was just wondering what you guys here thought of my prediction. I'll post an excerpt, and the rest can be read over at http://whatwouldcharlesmarteldotm.blogspot.com/ . I'm going to try and write more on this subject when I get a chance (no time to write lately) but I was wondering where opinions over here would be on this issue:


Since 9/11 the cry for a true leader has been increasing, and with the immigration issue now firmly on the table where it has belonged for so many years, Americans are actively shopping around. Everyone knows that the major players and contenders for both the Democratic and Republican nods for the 2008 election are at this point pandering and playing to the polls as desperately as possible in these weeks of immigration protests. Though not a contender, Senator Ted Kennedy had a Spanish interpreter with him in his latest round of speeches, who looked rather absurd as she leaned (way) over to reach the microphones to translate big ol' Teddy's speeches to the angry protestors. The situation itself is absurd, make no mistake. Immigrants, many illegal, protesting sometimes quite violently to gain the right to stay in the country they reached illegally. And that our government is letting this temper tantrum continue speaks volumes about either our true tolerance and great freedoms, or simply of our lack of spirit and fortitude these days. You be the judge. I'd personally like to see illegals in a non-Western country burning their host nation's flags and taking to the streets and see how well they are treated for it. My bet would be on the local authorities in this case. And strangely, you just don't see this tactic employed. Oh, the volumes that that speaks of our situation in the world these days.

Now, I could write all night on the absurdities of the protesters and the rights of national sovereignty, but I have turned my aim onto a different opponent of late, that being the populist calls for leadership. ANY leadership in the upcoming elections. Polls continue to show that Americans are overwhelmingly for complete immigration reform and against any official and sweeping amnesty to be given to illegal aliens in the US. Yet the polls still reflect the confusion and indecisiveness of the politicians in whose hands this issue has landed. The majority of legal Americans want something done on this issue, and usually not in favor of the illegals (note to Liberals : keep saying "undocumented workers" all you want. It's never going to take hold outside of your own circles). The politicians are still being namby-pamby about it all, with only a few exceptions.

Please read the rest, sorry that I can't link. That'll be my new mission for the day, to learn how to link.....

The leader in the war against the whispering satans of worldly materialism

We hear the words, and to us it means HIT ME. We hear them said and surely, we think, they must realize that by taking this path we will be compelled to act. But it's not 'all about us'
uf6.jpg

The Iranians have decided. They are not afraid to roll the dice. In fact they have adopted a philosophy that they are a sunrise power, and not only are we in decline but that from 9/11 to Iraq is an aberration in the american poltical scene, and among the american people themselves.

But this stentorian game of chicken is not meant for the american political audience, or the american people. It's meant for the arab and muslim 'street', who understand that Iran is unafraid in taking on the 'world of material arrogance' i.e. The Gap, Lord & Taylor, and Shakira broadcast into pious muslim livingrooms.

Cruel Islam and Iran is the worst

Iran : A 17 year old girl is sentenced to death by hanging.
Faithfreedom
2006/01/08

Nazanin, 17, was sentenced to death by hanging for defending herself against three rapists.

A young girl who defended herself and her chastity against three male assailants who intended to kidnap and rape her causing injury to one of them who later died in hospital was condemned to death by hanging in an Islamic court in Iran. Nazanin who has seen no more than 17 Springs, all of which under the tyrannical rule of the Mullahs is now facing execution for trying to defend herself and her honor...



Islam Is The Real Source of Violence.

Ali Sina - Faithfreedom
April 2001

Human rights abuses happen in many countries, but never to the proportion and the magnitude of what is happening in Iran and other Islamic countries. In the last few years, and with no little thanks to the Islamic Revolution of Iran, I noticed that the major human right abuses are perpetrated in the name of religion. I became concerned for the plight of my people in Iran and her neighboring countries and decided to investigate the cause. I asked myself whether all this is because the gentle and peaceful message of Islam is misunderstood and whether there is a way to revive the pure Islam and save my country. It was in this quest that I realized, to my chagrin, that the human right abuses are not deviations from the true Islam but they ARE teachings of Islam.

I realized that in Islam, Man has no rights! All the rights are reserved for Allah. Man has only duties. Among his duties, he has to pray five times a day, believe in the religion of Allah and submit his will, thoughts and intelligence to him. Any independence from Allah, even at the level of thought is punishable by beating, imprisonment and death.

"People around the world are breathing a sigh of relief with the news that the possible execution of confessed Afghani Christian Abdul Rahman has been solved and he will now be free to return to his life, Most people also believe this is an isolated incident..."

WINE AND LIQUEUR (including beer, whisky, brandy, Martini, vermouth, gin, vodka, Champagne , Port, Sherry…) are great taboos in Islam.

Ask any Muslim and he will surely attest to what I have diligently written just now.

'NO MORE MULLAHS'

Wall Street Journal
June 30, 2005

"In one of his rare outings during the Iranian presidential election campaign last week, Ali-Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the man then designated as the likely winner by almost everyone, ran into a spot of bother. An old woman broke through his security ring, shouting, "May I have a word with you?" Once allowed to approach Mr. Rafsanjani, the woman removed his turban with a blow and shouted, "No more mullahs!"

A couple of nights before that, Mr. Rafsanjani had been booed by students at Tehran University with cries of "mullahs back to the mosques!" Acknowledging the rising antimullah sentiments, Mr. Rafsanjani had himself photographed without a turban for the last posters in his forlorn campaign.

Mr. Rafsanjani was not the only mullah to experience the adverse tide of opinion. Ayatollah Muhammad Javadi Amoli, one of the regime's five "grand ayatollahs," was slapped across the face and shouted down from the stage as he tried to deliver a sermon supporting Mr. Rafsanjani in the holy city of Qom ...

For over two decades, Iran has systematically jailed, tortured, and executed dissidents without due process of law and assassinated political opponents outside state borders. Furthermore, like other oppressive states, Iran has regularly denied and countered the charges made by United Nations human rights monitors, defending its acts as authentic cultural practices..."

Iranian Performance Artists Celebrate Uranium Enrichment

Iran Could Produce Bomb In 16 Days


Look where all our diplomacy has gotten us. From Bloomberg, via Drudge:


April 12 (Bloomberg) -- Iran, defying United Nations Security Council demands to halt its nuclear program, may be capable of making a nuclear bomb within 16 days, a U.S. State Department official said.

Iran will move to ``industrial scale'' uranium enrichment involving 54,000 centrifuges at its Natanz plant, the Associated Press quoted deputy nuclear chief Mohammad Saeedi as telling state-run television today.

``Using those 50,000 centrifuges they could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in 16 days,'' Stephen Rademaker, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation, told reporters today in Moscow.

Saeedi said 54,000 centrifuges will be able to enrich uranium to provide fuel for a 1,000-megawat nuclear power plant similar to the one Russia is finishing in southern Iran, AP reported.

``It was a deeply disappointing announcement,'' Rademaker said of Ahmadinejad's statement.

Comedy Central Pussed Out

I just watched the much anticipated second episode of South Park's "Cartoon Wars." Last week at the end of the first episode South Park promised/threatened to show a cartoon image of Muhammad.

Long story short, Comedy Central caved in, lost its balls and censored South Park. When Cartoon Muhammed was supposed to walk on "camera" the screen went black with white words to the effect that Comedy Central refused to allow an image of Muhammad to be broadcast on its network. I have seen nearly every episode and this is the first time to my knowledge that Comedy Central has censored South Park.

What a freaking disgrace! What a spineless crowd of pussies! Network executives with the fortitude of a leaky bag of wet shit! Dhimmitude Central is more appropriate. I am disgusted.

Move along, it will be 5-10 years before they have one...wait a minute

I have repeatedly said...with alarm, that from the time the USA in 1944 - 45 perfected the enrichment of uranium thru UF6 diffusion, it took us several MONTHS to get enough U235 for a bomb. Despite this HISTORICAL FACT, head in the sand morons, and those who cannot accept objective reality (which apparently includes the CIA), have insisted 5-10 years is the right number for Iran.

Now today we have gas centrifuges which operate much faster than the gaseous diffusion we used at Oak Rdige. So does Iran. So we bring this 'news' to you with scant satisfaction and abundant frustration.

No doubt that means a harsh letter, sorry but it's time for the WT Sherman Institute of Foreign Policy

Denouncing Iran's successful enrichment of uranium as unacceptable to the international community, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday the U.N. Security Council must consider "strong steps" to induce Tehran to change course. arrow_thru_head.jpgRice also telephoned Mohamed ElBaradei, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, to ask him to reinforce demands that Iran comply with its nonproliferation requirements when he holds talks in Tehran on Friday.

So the powerless to act UN Security Council is being urged to "action". Action, of course being defined as a hand pushing keys on a keyboard, and then clicking "File, Print" before sending, what, a certified letter to Khameini?

Europe's Denial

Bruce Bawer, in this article, has an excellent introduction to Europe’s failure to face the Islamic threat.

“American immigration has worked on the whole, European immigration hasn’t. Why? The difference … boils down to American realism vs. European naïveté. Rather than learn from the spectacularly successful history of U.S. immigration, European policymakers—who viewed America as a cruelly materialistic nation that compels immigrants to shake off their identities and fend for themselves in a dog-eat-dog economic system—pursued instead an approach they saw as humane and multicultural.”

He describes “young European-born men who were being drawn increasingly to Islamic fundamentalism and even terrorism; and of a mainstream European society too inhibited by political correctness to face up to any of it.” Those Muslims who praise Western values are betrayed by European intellectuals. Indeed authorities “motivated by a misguided, condescending romanticism about exotic foreigners, actively discouraged it to the point of chiding [Muslim-born] freethinkers.” Islam, of course, is exempt from critical analysis. “Religious-studies professors in the West ‘criticize every religion on the face of the earth’ except Islam.”

Bawer reviews the literature on Islam.

Bernard Lewis notes that “it’s not American imperialism or exploitation that provokes Islamists but rather the seductive appeal of American culture, their own attraction to which appalls” fundamentalist Muslims. He sees Islamists “heavily influenced by both Nazism and Communism.” Of course, Lewis doesn’t see this as susceptibility inherent in Islam but a deviation from historic norms.

Robert Spencer and Ibn Warraq dissent from Lewis’ picture of Islam’s essential nature. They see Islam as fundamentally flawed. Warraq notes that Muslims, at times in the past, have slacked-off and failed to practice what they preach but the injunctions remain part of the canonical ideology of the religion. Western intellectuals, going back to Voltaire and Gibbon, have romanticized Islam—often as “a useful stick with which to beat Christianity.”

But no book explains the European Muslim situation, in all its complexity, more ably than Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis, in which an Egyptian-born Jewish writer who lives in Switzerland and calls herself Bat Ye’or … argues that the high immigration and low integration levels are the result not of European leaders’ well-intentioned naïveté but of an extensive pattern of political, economic, and academic collaboration between the left-wing European establishment and Arab governments that has been underway for decades”

Israel's Elected Enemies

Are you a Muslim who wants to see the end of Israel? Forget about the Hamas tactics, just use the system and take it down from within, like this guy :

Speaking in Ramallah, Israeli Arab Knesset Member calls on Palestinians to 'isolate Israel and its criminal policies,' says Israeli Arabs 'identifiy with, struggle for Palestinian prisoners'

Hadash Chairman Knesset Member Muhammad Barakeh called on the Hamas government not to play in the hands of Israel during a speech in Ramallah, in which he called on Palestinians to adopt a diplomatic line which would "isolate Israel's criminal policies and won't contribute to the Palestinian isolation."

Barakeh was invited to Ramallah to mark the Palestinian prisoner's day, an event in which senior Palestinians and parliament members, some of them Hamas members, took part in. He said that the government which will come to power in Israel will be in every way a Right-wing government, even if Labor takes part in it: "This will be a government which will go in the direction of unilateral steps, without connection to the Hamas victory."

Barakeh bitterly attacked the Israeli government and said that like every Israeli government during the elections, "the current Israeli government escalated its blood soaked violence to satisfy the Right. This government also took unjustified and cruel steps in Jericho and arrested Palestinian fighters like Ahmed Saadat (head of the PFLP and organizer of murder of tourism minister Rehavam Zeevi – A.W.)… all for elections reasons."

Barakeh attacked the "policies of pressure and criminal aggression operated by Israel against the Palestinian people. He said that "Israeli policies are designed to distract attention from the occupation and its consequences, especially from the issue of prisoners, who deal with violence and torture, just because they defend their land and people."

Barakeh went on to say that the issue of Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails interests not only their families, but the whole of the Palestinian people. "The Palestinians in the country (Arabs in Israel – A.W.) emphasize in their activities the issue of prisoners and identify with it, especially through strikes and other struggles," he said.

The Coming War With Iran

Spengler has some interesting thoughts:

“Americans are a misunderstood people. … President Bush earned overwhelming support by toppling Saddam Hussein, a caricature villain who appeared to threaten Americans, but earned opprobrium by committing American lives to the political rehabilitation of Iraq, about which Americans care little. …

The Revolutionary Guards of 1979 now are middle-aged men who now at last have a chance to lead. … But Iran's motives for acquiring nuclear power are not only economic but strategic. Like [Adolf] Hitler and [Josef] Stalin, Ahmadinejad looks to imperial expansion as a solution for economic crisis at home … envisages a regional Shi'ite empire backed by nuclear weaponry. …

If conflict with Iran is indeed unavoidable, the Bush administration can re-emerge as a war government rather than as Wilsonian nation-builders, with every expectation of popular support.”

Europe's First Night In Prison


"Maybe, if I pretend I'm dead, those mean old Muslims will leave me alone."


This one is just too amazing.

A Dutch think tank is has come to the conclusion that Sharia is not so bad after all. According to one of the researchers for the report:


“We should not be so spastic about the Sharia.” It may be that the system leads to corporal punishment in countries like Saudi Arabia and Sudan, “but under the Sharia in Morocco, family law has been reformed, very much to the advantage of women’s rights.” The Sharia for Muslims is comparable to the Ten Commandments for Christians, in the researcher’s view. “It is God’s plan for human nature.”
Here’s his advice for Dutch international policy:

Schoonenboom advises “an adventurous foreign policy” for the Dutch government. “We must support the moderate Islamic powers much more, such as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Hezbollah in Lebanon, instead of secular movements without prospects in Muslim countries. We must talk to the Palestinian regime of Hamas. They are democratically elected. It is a terrorist movement, but so was Arafat’s PLO. And the IRA in Ireland.”

“On the other hand, we must be much more critical regarding our friendly countries. We must address Russia more forcefully on human rights violations in Chechnya, Israel for its decades of ignoring UN resolutions and the US regarding Guantanamo Bay.”

Schoonenboom denies that the WRR report is naive. It is a reaction of “a real fear of dangerous developments. Do we want to go on living in a land that is plagued by fear of attacks?”



This is the kind of thinking that goes on in a pretty, young, scrawny guys head on his first night in prison.
"Yeah, maybe it won't be so bad being anally raped. Some guys like it. And, I sure ain't gonna look to my own for protection. That'll just get them even madder at me. "

"Yeah, I'll act like I like them. "

"That's the ticket. "

I just don't know what to say.

Eteraz Waxes Poetic Over At The Anchoress

Fellow IBA blogger, Eteraz, has been waxing poetic over at the blog The Anchoress.

Here's the comment I left in response to the post featuring his words:

Ali also blogs at the Infidel Bloggers Alliance. The url for that blog is:

www.ibloga.blogspot.com

I invited Ali to be a part of IBA, because I believe he truly is a reformist Muslim, and he is not a liar. I consider Ali a friend based on our correspondence. I believe he is a charming, intelligent, and passionate person.

He is also creative and poetic, which is what is required of a reformist.

Now, here's the thing, as a poetic thinker, I believe Ali sometimes thinks about things more the way he would like things to be, than the way the are.

That's required of a reformist. He needs to dream a new thing.

But, we need to face the truth at the same time.

Ali is not mentioning here the fact that Jihad is required in the Koran, and it is, in many passages, specified as violence and terror against the Christians and the Jews.

The story of Mohammed's life is that he got increasingly frustrated with the Christians and Jews for rejecting his faith. This is why the latter part of the Koran is predominantly about making war against them.

Ali needs to deal with that fact, admit it, and he, as a reformer, needs to demand change, as much as he waxes poetic.

I can't wait to see what he has to say about that.

Now, I know a lot of the IBA contributors know the Koran much better than I. I think Eteraz has not been entirely honest here. As I note in the email, I think Eteraz is just doing his poetic thing, but honesty is required as well.

Maybe some of you can help out. I'm sure a rollicking discussion can get underway.

Despite the fact that they are so small in size, however, Israelis continue to be world leaders in innovation. Here are some interesting examples:

To Be Or Not To Be


The media is, of course, currently attempting to make George Bush look like a madman for considering his options in the case of a military strike against Iran. In light of their horror that Bush would even consider an attack, Roger Simon questions where diplomacy could possibly lead in the first place:


What would a "diplomatic solution" to the Iranian nuclear question actually look like? Just give me a few concrete sentences... Not easy, is it? Not for anything tangible anyway.

Even if we got the Iranians to sign something, what would it mean? Hardly any countries acknowledge their nuclear weapons programs while engaged in initiating them. The US didn't in 1944. The Soviets didn't. The UK and the French didn't. The Israelis didn't. The Pakistanis and the Indians didn't.

What they said they were doing and what they were doing were rarely the same thing. And we expect the Iranian Mullahs, of all people, to behave differently? In order to know, we'd have to have a watcher, or maybe three, on every street corner of their vast country.

And even then I'm not sure we'd know.

Remember, back in the days of the Manhattan Project, Enrico Fermi and his colleagues split the atom in some made-over squash court under the University of Chicago football stadium. Its worth reviewing those times while recalling that was the early 1940s, over sixty years ago!


There are really only two options;

1) Attack Iran
or
2) Live with the Iranian bomb.

Uh, or, is that die with the Iranian bomb?

Today, We Are All Parisians


Today, thousands upon thousands of invaders from another country take to our streets to stake their claim to ownership of our country.

Today, thousands upon thousands of illegals hope to intimidate our legislators into conceding defeat, and to further their cause of "retaking their territory."

This strategy, these tactics, are working well for Islam in France, so why not here, in the United States?

Unlike the recent "demonstration" in California, the illegals are NOT carrying the flag of Mexico; that apparently raised too many concerns among the legal inhabitants. Instead, their handlers, which include MECha and ANSWER.com, have instructed them to wear white shirts for "peace," and carry American flags. This, say the handlers,will have a calming effect on the inhabitants of the territories being invaded, making them less responsive.

The Treaty of Hidalgo, signed by both Mexico and the United States in 1848, put an end to the Mexican-American war, and for a mutually agreed upon price of $18,250,000 (about $627,500,000 in today's dollars), gave the United States UNDISPUTED CONTROL of California, Texas, Nevada, Utah, along with parts of Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming.

Today, it's our Southwestern states; tomorrow, will it be Utah, Colorado and Wyoming? More?

Unlike France, we already have brave and determined citizens; now we need a fence, we need the National Guard along the borders, we need to track and identify who has entered our country, and above all, we need elected officials who will uphold their oaths of office and existing law.

Hamas should not be recognized at all. They should only be outlawed and destroyed

Recently, the Canadian government froze aid the PLO, becoming one of the first donors to do so. But there's one little thing I must take issue with here:
Canada’s Conservative government said last month that for funding to continue, Hamas would also have to renounce violence against Israel and agree to stick to the terms of previous peace deals between the two sides. Hamas rejects such demands.
They may reject the Canadian government's demands, but, here's the problem: is the Canadian government saying that, upon any official announcement of "reform", that Canada would recognize them instantaneously? "BOING! Recognition granted." Is that it?

Now aside from the fact that any such announcement would be phony, what's wrong with this? Simply put, it's the fact that the Hamas is an enemy of North America as it is of Israel. And if so, then why did US Congress also go along and say that they would recognize the Hamas provided that they reform? Because, as the New York Sun (Via IRIS Blog) reported recently:
Hamas praised the killing of thousands of Americans in the attacks of September 11, 2001, while saying Muslims could not have been involved - a similar response to those of other groups in the Middle East. "Allah has answered our prayers," Dr. Atallah Abu Al-Subh wrote in an open letter titled "To America," which appeared September 13, 2001, in the Hamas mouthpiece Al-Risala. "The airplanes were [controlled] by the Jews," Hamas activist Yussef Al-'Azam wrote in the Hamas newspaper Al-Sabil on October 4, 2001. "Were the eradication of its Marines in Lebanon, the destruction of its military headquarters at Khobar in Saudi Arabia, the destruction of the USS Cole in Yemen, the bombing of its embassies in Zambia [sic] and in Kenya, and the attacks on its soldiers in the Gulf...not sufficient? The U.S. should have learned the lessons of history," the editor of Al-Risala, Dr. Ghazi Hamad, wrote days after 9/11.
Now is this the kind of entity that sensible Americans and Canadians want recognized by their government? Let's be clear, just like this is an enemy of Israel, this is also an enemy of America, and to recognize them at all would be a betrayal of America's citizens just as much as Israel's. And that's why, simply put, they should NOT be recognized at all. Period. Also important to note is that, because of their murderous actions until today, they do not deserve to be politicians, and have lost any right or justification for being in positions of power.

One more reason why Americans should be offended that now, the US administration is increasing funding for the PLO, claiming that the funds they're sending out are going through the UNRWA. And the UNRWA, as IRIS Blog shows here, is involved in collaborations with terrorists. All concerned would be advised to contact Congress to see if they can deal with the case.

We're Being Attacked From All Sides




You have to wonder:

France is being attacked and ransacked by "students" and "youths."


















America is under attack from "guest workers" (sponsored by Communists) and journalists like Seymore Hersh, who is clearly trying to take any possibility of an attack on Iran out at the knees.
















And, Jihadis across the world are bolder than ever.

Could it be that all of this is in some way coordinated? Red/Black Alliance anyone?

Am I being paranoid?

Imminent U.S. Attack On Iran.........?

Seymour Hersh, whose left wing sympathies are blatantly obvious reports that the Bush administration is planning for a major air attack on Iran, according to his article published on the New Yorker magazine website today (another completely leftarded magazine to which I stopped subscribing after 9/11 when Susan Sontag blamed us for the attack in the September 24th 2001 issue when the fires were still burning and the smell of burning flesh, plastic, paper, rubber, the smell of burnt everything hung heavy in the air.)

Iaea_watchdoe This claim of imminent attack, as IAEA watchdogs watchdoes arrived in Iran today to continue the fruitless circle jerk. Five inspectors from the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency arrived in Tehran to visit Iran's uranium enrichment and reprocessing facilities, state-run television reported Saturday. (illustration: Pete)
The scheduled inspection comes just head of a key visit to Iran by Mohammed ElBaradei, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

I have NO FAITH in the UN or the international community. They are paralyzed by corruption, moral inversion, and unending discourse. If they can't save lives in Darfur, an unambiguous case of genocide, Iran is far far beyond their grasp. America must save the world, from itself, yet again. We need our peeps, our crew, our coalition - trusted allies that share our values, to get anything done.

Hersh's left wing bias hides in plain sight. There are typical left wing jabs in the article i.e.

"the real issue is who is going to control the Middle East and its oil in the next ten years.”

and sophomoric nonsense like

" speaking of President Bush, the House member said, “The most worrisome thing is that this guy has a messianic vision.”

See what I mean? But peel away the partisan prattle and there is encouraging Intel in there.

One of the military’s initial option plans, as presented to the White House by the Pentagon this winter, calls for the use of a bunker-buster tactical nuclear weapon, such as the B61-11, against underground nuclear sites. One target is Iran’s main centrifuge plant, at Natanz, nearly two hundred miles south of Tehran. Natanz, which is no longer under I.A.E.A. safeguards, reportedly has underground floor space to hold fifty thousand centrifuges, and laboratories and workspaces buried approximately seventy-five feet beneath the surface.

If true, I, for one, think this it overdue. No, I am not a warmonger but I am not a denier either. I love my life and recognize when it is being threatened.

Apparently, U.S. undercover troops are in Iran collecting data and working to establish contacts with anti-government groups, and the Air Force is drawing up lists of targets, despite publicly advocating diplomacy in order to stop Iran from pursuing nuclear weapons.

The article goes on to say that one of the option plans presented to the White House by the Pentagon calls for the use of a bunker-buster tactical nuclear weapon against underground nuclear sites such as the Natanz centrifuge plant.

One military planner told me that White House criticisms of Iran and the high tempo of planning and clandestine activities amount to a campaign of “coercion” aimed at Iran. “You have to be ready to go, and we’ll see how they respond,” the officer said. “You have to really show a threat in order to get Ahmadinejad to back down.” He added, “People think Bush has been focussed on Saddam Hussein since 9/11,” but, “in my view, if you had to name one nation that was his focus all the way along, it was Iran.”

Fire breaks out adjacent to nuclear facilities outside Tehran

A fire broke out in a forest north of Tehran on Saturday, not far from an area intelligence agencies suspected illegal nuclear activity. It took firefighters some seven hours to contain theNuclear_4 blaze.

A previous fire in the same forest occurred after Tehran municipality workers chopped town trees in the area, after which arsons set a fire. Analysts believe that the two fires may be linked and that they were set by intelligence officers or members of the Iranian Atomic Energy Committee, so that remnants of various materials, mainly enriched uranium, would not be detected.

There had been a military base in the vicinity of Lavizan, near where the fire raged, where, according to the Central Intelligence Agency, uranium had been enriched. The information was transferred to the International Atomic Energy Agency six months ago, and the United Nations nuclear watchdog called for inspections at the site. The Iranian government rejected the request, only allowing IAEA inspectors to visit after significant changes had been implemented.

The changes are visible in satellite images, which indicate that the Iranians destroyed the military base and built a soccer stadium and other sports facilities in the area. Constructing the stadium provided an excuse for overturning and replacing the soil in the area, so that if samples were to be taken, remnants of illegal materials would not be detected.

The President’s deep distrust of Ahmadinejad has strengthened his determination to confront Iran. This view has been reinforced by allegations that Ahmadinejad,
Iran_death_us_israel_10 who joined a special-forces brigade of the Revolutionary Guards in 1986, may have been involved in terrorist activities in the late eighties. (There are gaps in Ahmadinejad’s official biography in this period.) Ahmadinejad has reportedly been connected to Imad Mughniyeh, a terrorist who has been implicated in the deadly bombings of the U.S. Embassy and the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, in 1983. Mughniyeh was then the security chief of Hezbollah; he remains on the F.B.I.’s list of most-wanted terrorists.

Robert Baer, who was a C.I.A. officer in the Middle East and elsewhere for two decades, told me that Ahmadinejad and his Revolutionary Guard colleagues in the Iranian government “are capable of making a bomb, hiding it, and launching it at Israel. They’re apocalyptic Shiites. If you’re sitting in Tel Aviv and you believe they’ve got nukes and missiles—you’ve got to take them out. These guys are nuts, and there’s no reason to back off.”

Under Ahmadinejad, the Revolutionary Guards have expanded their power base throughout the Iranian bureaucracy; by the end of January, they had replaced thousands of civil servants with their own members. One former senior United Nations official, who has extensive experience with Iran, depicted the turnover as “a white coup,” with ominous implications for the West. “Professionals in the Foreign Ministry are out; others are waiting to be kicked out,” he said. “We may be too late. These guys now believe that they are stronger than ever since the revolution.” He said that, particularly in consideration of China’s emergence as a superpower, Iran’s attitude was “To hell with the West. You can do as much as you like.”

Iran’s supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, is considered by many experts to be in a stronger position than Ahmadinejad. “Ahmadinejad is not in control,” one European diplomat told me. “Power is diffuse in Iran. The Revolutionary Guards are among the key backers of the nuclear program, but, ultimately, I don’t think they are in charge of it. The Supreme Leader has the casting vote on the nuclear program, and the Guards will not take action without his approval.

The Pentagon adviser on the war on terror said that “allowing Iran to have the bomb is not on the table. We cannot have nukes being sent downstream to a terror network. It’s just too dangerous.”

Meanwhile left winger blogs are standing at the ready, to cave and submit to dhimmitude here

UPDATE April 9th: Interesting observation from Jay;

At noon today on CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer, Seymour Hersh was interviewed on his upcoming article in the New Yorker... He told the world that US troops are already in Iran searching for sites to bomb. He also upped the anti-war panic by saying the White House may use strategic nukes to go after hardened nuke factories 75 feet underground.

Only in America can Hersh be allowed to go on TV and tell our enemies what we are planning and simultaneously endanger the safety of our men in uniform. Only in America do journalists not call Seymour Hersh a traitor.

Jay, where the left is concerned, it's party before country. They would cut off their lungs to spite their breath.

There is nothing new to Hersh's piece, of course he's right, any 2 year old knows we are at least considering military action. Nukes in the hands of mental patients? We'd be derelict in our duty if we weren't considering and planning the military option.

The objective of the Hersh's article was to make military action the national dialog. Present it with a decidedly left wing taint, play it out in the lamestream media, cite bad Intel (BUSH LIED, PEOPLE DIED! as in Iraq - the fruit the Clinton decimation of the military and intel agencies wrought ) and have the public weigh in with a decided no, which only serves to embolden Iran.

This whole psyop of Hersh's emboldens Iran. You're damn right Jay, the left is the fifth column.
