Just Like the Old Days

Is it just me or I have I read something like this before?

Didn't all this stuff get said about Iraq before the invasion? I don't know if you can remember back then but there was a 'real and credible threat' coming from this rogue state (Iraq) that was going to kill us all in our sleep and drink our blood etc etc.

Then it all turned out to be utter rubbish.

According to America, Iran is a threat because:
  • They are actively seeking to produce weapons of mass destruction. Namely nuclear weapons
  • They are sending men, money and weapons over the border to Iraq to try and destabilise the peaceful and serine lives of the happy Iraqi consumers.
  • They said your mum is a fanny head.
Let's just give America the benefit of the doubt and agree that what they are saying is true. If this scenario exists it is because the US has backed Iran into a corner.

If you were being threatened by America after watching what they did to your next door neighbor, you can be damned sure that you would do what any of us would do and take measures to protect yourself.
The only reason Iran is developing these weapons - if they are at all - is to defend themselves from American aggression.

If you think that Iran would have developed these weapons regardless of what America was doing, answer me this: Why did they not start developing a nuclear capability until after Iraq?

Iran is not an 'evil' nation. It is a nation of human beings that can be talked to like any other.

On the matter of Iran fueling 'insurgent' violence in Iraq - They would not have had the opportunity to attack American soldiers - if they are - had America not been there in the first place.

The report ends with:

"Shadow defense secretary Liam Fox said: "We cannot give them the comfort of believing that there is any weakness in the western alliance or that there is a chance that they might be able to divide and rule."

Western alliance? What's that? Someone let me know who the members of this mystery alliance are. Is gist of this quote? ' if you don't agree with what we are saying, there is a chance Iran will attack us.

It's insane. Iran would not initiate open conflict with America and Europe. It would not last an hour. To make Iran out to be this unstoppable terrorist evil is lame.

Hooray for Boobies

Mothers in The Philippines broke the Guinness world record for mass breastfeeding today.

3,738 crowded into the San Andres Sports Complex and 'nursed' their babies simultaneously.

According to the Manila Times, the Manila city government and Unicef (the UN children's fund) were behind the organization of the event.
This seems to be Unicef's current plan to help the children of the world..Through breastfeeding..Right..
Its so that mothers stop using baby formula apparently. Ok I can understand if it's not a good idea for mothers to use formula then encourage away from it.

I'm just not sure how the slurping of 3,000 babies is going to solve anything in particular. I mean as well as holding up the badminton courts, a concentrated breastfeeding bonanza is just going make it more of a novelty surely.

If breastfeeding makes you uncomfortable, imagine what the Guinness judge felt like.

Iran 'defies' 'world' further

Iran has announced that it can now enrich uranium to 4.8%. It is nearly ready to begin generating electricity in power plants. The level of enriched uranium required to generate power is 5%.

This is despite threats of sanctions and possible force used against Iran if they continue on their 'quest for nuclear weapons'.

According to the United States Code Congressional and administrative news, the definition of terrorism is:

Any act that (A) invloves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the laws of the United States or of any State; and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civillian population; (ii) to influence to policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping.

Is this not what America is doing to Iran when it threatens the use of force to neutralise a percieved nuclear threat?
The United States is guilty of terrorism by its own definition. Should we declare war or just bomb them?

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!

I just heard on radio 2 that David Cameron rides his bike to work and has a car follow with his briefcase in it..

So much for green David Cameron....what a twat!

goodbye environmental voters.

US Plot to hurt old man.

A man has claimed that the US supplied him with weapons that would be used in an attempt to overthrow the Cuban leader, Fidel Castro.

Robert Ferro was found to have 1,571 guns and some grenades:

"In an interview Thursday, Ferro, 61, contended that some of the high-powered weapons — including assault rifles, silencer-equipped handguns and Uzis — were supplied to him by the U.S. government. He said the weapons were supposed to be used in an attempt to oust Castro that would have coincided with U.S. Navy operations being conducted in the Caribbean Sea.

"Obviously, now it will not take place," Ferro said. "Those guns I had were very sophisticated weapons. It was for a fight. I was just trying to mimic what President Bush has done in Iraq, bring freedom to the country."
What a cool story. I don't think there is any truth in it at all...But cool.

Zarqawi Shows His Face

Abu Musab-al Zaqawi has appeared in a rare video to the world.

It seems to me that all these terrorist videos are alike. How come all terrorist films look the same?

They always have a sheet or something as a back drop and there is always a gun or weapon resting in the background....Do they think they are fooling us into thinking that is an everyday situation? That it's like that all the time. Do they rest guns like that in their sitting room whilst they watch TV and eat dinner? Do they drape plain sheets off the walls of their houses?

Secondly, Can you please tell me how someone who is dressed like this is not getting stopped by security forces? Its rediculous!

If you saw a bearded man walking through a market dressed all in black, wearing a beanie hat and carrying a snub-nosed assault rifle, with a huge ammo pouch strapped to your chest, what would you think?

If I had to draw a picture of a terrorist that is what it would look like!

Fuel Study rains on NK parade.

A recent study into the capabilities of North Korea in the event of an all out war have shown that they are rubbish.

In the event of all out war, North Korea could fuel its army for 30 days before completely running out of energy. It would then take them 4 months to resupply its army before it could carry on...For another 30 days.

"The fuel use figure is based on a wartime scenario in which 50 percent of ground force equipment would be inoperable by the end of 30 days, aircraft cease operations in 24 hours, and 90 percent of naval forces cease operation in five days.

The study predicted it would take four more months to restock military fuel given North Korea’s current supply rate, either by bringing in fuel stored in rear areas or from refining new fuel and then moving it into combat zones."

It seems that the information is going to be used to help "denuclearize" the country. In exchange for disarming its nukes, Korea gets rich tasty fuel.

What I would like to know is: Who commissioned that study and why?

After all, who cares about the performance of North Korea's army? It's not as though we're going to have to fight them soon or anything...are we?
