A-Jad Provokes Walkout at UN

September 22, 2011

Finally, the good kind of unity at the United Nations!  After Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started tearing into the “arrogant powers” of United States and the West during his UN speech, more than 30 countries got up and walked out!  Wandering between Holocaust denial, the trademark Zionist conspiracy and criticizing America’s Africa policy (of all [...]

Iran: We’re Nuclear! … Almost

February 11, 2010

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “big” proclamation which was supposed to scare the pants off the West happened to be a pretty predictable one.  Iran is now in possession of some highly-enriched uranium with the capability of enriching higher.  You need 90% enrichment for weapons, but Mahmoud admitted their capabilities range from 20-80%.  Meaning, not much has changed [...]

Something Brewing in Iran

February 1, 2010

A couple of stories that have surfaced today make me wonder if something is brewing in Iran.  First, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced yesterday that Iran would “deliver a harsh blow to the ‘global arrogance’ on this year’s anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.” The anniversary, which takes place on February 11, marks the beginning of [...]

Unfortunately, I don’t think this strategy fits into the HopeAndChange strategy of talking to dictators and thugs.  Sorry [...]

Violence in Iran Escalates

June 20, 2009

The word out of Iran is this:  violence.  The pro-Mousavi protesters decided not to acquiesce to Supreme Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s meaningless recount gesture, which reinforced Ahmadinejad’s victory.  Nor have they disappeared after Khamenei promised to crack heads if the protests didn’t disappear. Well, the head-cracking has begun.  Word out of Iran at this moment is that [...]

Iran Votes Against Change

June 13, 2009

Ha!  That’s a funny title since transparent democracy is quite foreign the closer one gets to the reins of power in Iran where a theocratic oligarchy tells their puppet (still Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) what to say and how to act.  Putting Mahmoud’s opponent, Mir Hossein  Mousavi, in power would have been like merely changing the label but [...]

Iran Wants an Apology Too!

January 28, 2009

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has asked for an apology from the US because of “crimes” America has committed against them.  Of course, it’s both ridiculous and completely expected.  In fact, I expect the Obama Administration to be conciliatory toward the Iranian regime which is nonetheless running a proxy-war in Gaza, Lebanon, as well as killing US troops in Iraq. All that [...]
