I am home on my computer (my secret lover, oy).................yay!
ok, let's look at Iran's new cabinet...................this is important.
The LLL. media wants you to think about other things - like that psychopathic mother Sheehan in Texas. Why does she get so much press? Huh? 1900 fine young delicious America lives sacrificed for our freedom and this "mother" gets full court press? WTF? I don't want to hear...............of course soldiers die. That's what , these brave fine wonderful honorable men and women soldiers do - fight for our freedom. So that the 3,000 innocent American lives lost on 9/11 were not taken in vain.
The LLL mainstream media think they are still dictating what Americans will think. HELLLOOOOOOOOOO. Why blogosphere then?
DO NOT TAKE YOUR EYE OFF THE BALL
Iraq a mistake? HARDLY! The ferocity of the war is proof positive that THIS IS WAR. The attack from Jordan on American and Navel apparatus today is proof positive we are at war.
Remember after 9/11? How FREAKED we were when the next attack would come. REMEMBER?
I do. In New York we were soiling our pants. WORD.
And if you think it's an "accident" that we haven't been hit since YOU ARE IRRATIONAL. Having been in advertising and marketing in a prior life, you can make polls say whatever you want. Bush's ratings at their lowest? LIE.
The American people know we can't withdraw from Iraq. An exit strategy? There is no such thing. We attempting to accomplish something never done before - freeing a people in a region oppressed for centuries. There is no template.
If we pull our troops or give a timetable all hell breaks loose, just what the left wants. Whose side on they are on? Have they, even for moment, considered the consequences if they are wrong?
While I don't believe for a second Bush is wrong, what if he were. Whats the damage? Freeing people subjugated under the heel of a despot's brutality.
MEMO TO ANGELINA JOLIE: Wanna really help? Stop the happy horseshit and stop giving money to despotic regimes. Speak out for the African dhimmis being raped and slaughtered. Gving money to Africa is NOT THE ANSWER. It is much tougher than that. It takes a real backbone...................hard to find even harder to act on.
Back t Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism. Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria all back by the Jimmuh Carter supported Islamic Regime. The new cabinet from Jack Wheeler's To the Point (subscribe already!)
A CABINET OF
Iranian President Ahmadi
Nejad has been busy putting together a cabinet for the Islamic republic. While
all real power remains firmly in the clammy hands of Supreme Leader Khamenei,
it's worth taking a look at some of the new ministers, if only because it tells
us two important things:
(1) The face the regime wishes to show to the
world at large, and (2) the policies the regime intends to unleash on the
long-suffering Iranian people.
Let's start with the interior minister,
Hojatoll-Islam Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi. He was formerly the number-two man
in the ministry of intelligence and security — where he was directly in charge
of the foreign section (and thus the sorts of foreign operations now running
full bore in Iraq and Afghanistan) — and, even more significantly, the man in
charge of those matters in the office of the supreme leader.
Pour-Mohammadi comes from a sartorially celebrated family; his father
and brother are tailors for leading clergy. Indeed, they prepared the tailoring
for both bin Laden and Zawahiri in their recent videos, in which their clothing
was distinctively Iranian.
The minister for intelligence and security is
Hojjatol-Islam Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ezhei, from Isfahan, where he
acquired a reputation as a particularly vicious and barbaric head of the Islamic
tribunals which regularly issued brutal sentences.
He has been special
prosecutor in the intelligence ministry, where he was also in charge of key
personnel decisions, and at present he is judge and prosecutor for the special
tribunal of the clergy.
To Mohammed-Hossein Saffar-Harandi of
Tehran goes the ironically named ministry of culture and Islamic guidance. In
reality, that ministry's key role is to provide cover for external intelligence
For a decade, Saffar-Harandi was the director of the
political bureau of the Revolutionary Guards, in which he holds the rank of
brigadier general, and for which he was the commander of southern Iran.
The foreign minister is Manoucher Mottaki, whose long diplomatic
career (he has been ambassador to both Japan and Turkey, and deputy foreign
minister) has included the sensitive role as liaison between the foreign
ministry and the revolutionary guards. While he was ambassador to Ankara,
numerous Iranian dissidents were murdered and others kidnapped.
there is the defense minister, Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar, another brigadier
general in the Revolutionary Guards, where he has been since its official
formation in 1979. As several commentators have pointed out, he was the
commander of the RG forces in Lebanon in 1983, when the Marine barracks were
blown up by the Guards and Hezbollah. So we owe him one.
have torn off their conciliatory mask in order to bare their fangs to us, the
Europeans, and the Iranian people.
If we had an Iran strategy worthy of
the name, our confused leaders would have pointed out the remarkable interview
with the chief nuclear affairs negotiator, Hossein Musavian. It was broadcast on
Iranian television August 4th, and made it quite clear that the Iranians
deliberately tricked the Europeans into giving the mullahs an extra year to
complete a vital part of their nuclear program in Isfahan.
the negotiations with Europe," he bragged, "we gained another year, in which we
completed...Isfahan." This was quite a coup, at least in Musavian's humble
"We suspended (the enrichment program) in Isfahan in October
2004, although we were required to do so in October 2003...Today we are in a
position of power: (the program) in Isfahan is complete and UF4 and UF6 gases
are being produced. We have a stockpile of products, and...we have managed to
convert 36 tons of yellow cake into gas and store it..."
Chirac? Chancellor Schroeder? Prime Minister Blair? How do you all intend to
answer your parliamentary inquiries? You were all gulled by the mullahs (or, to
put the darkest light on the matter, willing accomplices).
the mullahs are killing us. Time Magazine published a long report from Baghdad
on August 16, entitled "Inside Iran's Secret War for Iraq," which lays out
chapter and verse of the mullahs' longstanding efforts — often coordinated with
Assad's Syria — to drive us out of Iraq.
It is the first time I've seen
a major publication confirm what I reported months before Operation Iraqi
Freedom: planning for the terror war against Coalition forces in Iraq "began
before the U.S. invaded."
And Time quotes a "British military
intelligence officer about the relative inattention paid to the murderous
Iranian activities. 'It's as though we are sleepwalking'."
devoting hours of prime time coverage to the ravings of a broken mother, our
media would do better to ask this administration why, four years after 9/11, it
still has no Iran policy.
Perhaps, although one cannot say more than
that, we are paying more attention. First came the announcement that American
forces in Iraq found a cache of Iranian weapons, and had also captured a truck
with shaped explosives entering Iraq from Iran.
Then, talking to
journalists on his plane during a South American swing on August 17, Rumsfeld
said that U.S. forces have found Iranian weapons in Iraq "on more than one
occasion over the past couple of months."
These are straws in a very
strong wind, and they will be blown away unless President Bush, Secretaries Rice
and Rumsfeld, and Security Adviser Hadley at long last craft a serious policy to
bring the terror war to bear on Tehran, as the president should have demanded on
The list of proven Iranian actions in the terror war against us
is a very long one. To take just a few:
In July, Assistant Secretary of
State David Welch testified to the House International Relations Committee that
"Iranian cadre were training Hizballah fighters in Lebanon," which
Representative Tom Lantos quite reasonably found "profoundly disturbing."
Hezbollah is operating in Iraq, and its infamous operational chieftain,
Imad Mughniyah, remains at large even though the US Government has put a very
high price on his head for decades.
U.S. special forces in Hilla last
fall captured documents and photographs of known Iraqi terrorists meeting with
Syrian and Iranian intelligence officers in Syria.
Spanish magistrate Baltasar Garzon publicly stated that, after the liberation of
Afghanistan, al Qaeda reconstituted its leadership in Iran, where they convened
a strategic summit in November, 2002.
One of the participants was a
Syrian named Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, who is now suspected by British
authorities of being one of the masterminds of the lethal terrorist attack in
London. According to Spanish newspapers, "Intelligence reports from foreign
agencies last year placed Nasar in Iran."
The seemingly inescapable fact
is that Iran is waging war on us, we are well aware of it, and we are not
responding, even though most Iranians are dreaming of the day that the United
States supports them against the mullahs.
Hardly a day goes by without
anti-regime demonstrations in one Iranian city or another, involving students,
workers, intellectuals, and even some very important clergymen. The number of
Iranian dissidents on hunger strike is growing. Akbar Ganji hovers between life
and death in a hospital in Tehran.
Yet, aside from occasional statements
of compassion, there is no hint of action from the Bush administration.
This inaction has recently been buttressed by two fanciful "estimates"
from the intelligence community. The first reassuringly forecast that Iran is a
good ten years away from nuclear weapons; the second insisted that no revolution
is in the Iranian works.
To which the only proper response is a belly
I'm personally willing to bet the farm against any intel-type
willing to take the wager that Iran will have atomic bombs in a period closer to
ten days than to ten years.
And the "no revolution in the works"
prediction comes from the same people who made the same prediction just before
the fall of the Shah and who confidently told Ronald Reagan that the Soviet
Empire was here to stay.
President Reagan ignored these deep thinkers,
and the Soviet Union is no more. President Bush needs to do the same with the
Mullacracy of Iran.
Enough already. Let’s roll.
and no modern day Greek tragedy would be complete without the diabolical flying monkeys at the United Nations weighing in on Iran's [lanned nuclear holocaust;
UN nuke agency to clear Iran on uranium charge, diplomats
The UN nuclear
agency has concluded that highly enriched uranium particles found in Iran were
from imported equipment and not from Iran's own activities, diplomats said.
I swear, I couldn't make this stuff up.
