You say you want a revolution...

...well, maybe you don't, but I do. In Iran.
(It would save US a lot of trouble)

I wonder if anyone else noticed the resemblance:




















The guy to the left is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, current President of Iran.

The one to the right is Ringo Starr, former Beatle.
(Originally Richard Starkey)

I think the physical similarity is the only one between them.
(Profuse apologies in advance to Ringo)

Ringo seems like a personable fellow, whereas that other guy seems like a puppet for the mullahs in the theocracy that is Iran.

How much of his bluster is a carefully contrived act, I have no way of knowing, but I suspect it's a lot.

I do know that quite a few of the people living over there are quite unhappy with the whole situation, and it is my hope that they rise up someday and take control.

Now the IAEA has found weapons grade fissionable materials in Iran, which is a great cause for concern based on that country's "track record".

A revolution would be right on time...

Maybe we can get by with a little help from our friends (Israel).

But if you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out?

Could be that we're gonna try with a little help from our friends.

Let's hope that doesn't become literally...

Talk about your "people with minds that hate." I'm sure ol' Mahmoud is really happy about the recent election results here in the US! :-(

"Happiness IS a warm GUN". Maybe Israel can work their magic on Iran much as they did in Iraq some years ago. They "Might get by with a little help from our / their friends" Seems we kinda have Iran sort of surrounded being both in Afghanistan and Iraq. I always though they were the ultimate objective anyway Iraq being just strategic ground.......?

Good one! But I'd rather they had a melt down in their centrifuge(s).

(:D) Best regards all...

Nice tie-in. And "ol' Mahmoud" prob'ly is pleased with the recent election, yes.

pacavewolf:
We definitely have Iran "sort of surrounded"...strategic indeed.

They might just have some type of nuclear "accident", playing with those fissionable materials.

We shall see...

"We definitely have Iran "sort of surrounded"...strategic indeed."

What a load of bunkum. You don't control Afghanistan - even Karzai has only nominal control, and that's only of Kabul. And you MOST CERTAINLY are not in control of Iraq. Talk about wishful thinking!

My god, is this how you delude yourselves? Don't you see the reports of what's happening on these countries? Or have you got your heads permanently stuck in the sand?

Heroin production in Afghanistan has doubled. They now produce 90% of the world supply. And if you can't even stop that, you have no control at all.
As for Iraq, the Higher Education Minister said tonight that the country is in a state of anarchy and the government is in "disintegration". I suppose you'll say now that that is all the Iraqis fault. Nothing to do with you at all ... no, no, no, mate, nothing at all ... Like, you have every right to be there, but everything that has happened is their fault (?).

Sheesh!

Why do all the inflammatory comments originate in Ireland?
(Specifically the Dublin area)

It seems to me that you're doing quite well under this "Pax Americana". I guess Saddam Hussein's methods of controlling the populace in Iraq were perfectly acceptable to you, eh what?

And I'm not your "mate"...

Since you consider a straightforward question a "convoluted remark", I'll make it simple for you. Regarding your statement about Iraq being "in a state of anarchy"...do you think Saddam Hussein's methods of controlling the populace in Iraq were perfectly acceptable?!

As for reading your IP address, your blogger profile is certainly devoid of substance. Probably much like yourself, considering the fact you're hiding in anonymity on "Da 'Net" with nothing better to occupy your empty existence than troll posting at various blogs. My email address is available if you'd care to take it offline, but somehow, I doubt if you possess the intellectual honesty for that...

"do you think Saddam Hussein's methods of controlling the populace in Iraq were perfectly acceptable?!"

No.

So what?

That makes what you did acceptable?
I thought you considered yourselves somehow morally superior to Saddam.

Actually, I was referring to this bit:
"It seems to me that you're doing quite well under this "Pax Americana".

If we're doing well it has sweet-f-all to do with you.

And don't give me that rubbish about profiles. Half your commenters don't have info on their profiles. But you only like to point it out when it's someone who disagrees with you.

postage stamp? Must be the size of her/his/its brain.

When has it become immoral to take out a tyrant and his regime? I certainly don't remember even the Bible warning Caesar he better not take on some scumbag, two-bit, tin-plated despot unless he had WMD five-by-five.

BTW, we most certainly do control Iraq and Afghanistan and could consolidate that control by removing the velvet glove from the steel fist ... but then postage_stamp would wet his/her/its panties in righteous indignation about "excessive force". What part of "war" doesn't postage_stamp understand?

The enemy can use their own brothers and sisters as human shields while we have to follow ever restrictive rules of engagement which eventually leads to more violence on the part of radical Islamists who see this as weakness on our part. This is what we get for fighting wars the "liberal way".

The fact of the matter is, we have two bridgeheads with fully equipped bases in countries directly to the east and to the west of Iran. There is very real strategic value in this present arrangement even though we may not "control" every alleyway or mud hovel in Afghanistan and Iraq and we've made our soldiers easier targets for whatever Islamic scumbag wants to take potshots at them while they sacrifice themselves by trying to keep the peace in a Muslim country. If there is any failure in all this its a failure of Islam to live up to its adherents claim about it being a "religion of peace". That's the most valuable lesson we can take away from Iraq and Afghanistan as Islamofascists continue ramping up their efforts to establish a global Islamic caliphate and reacquire Europe and other lands it lost eight centuries ago.

LOL! - is that what you tell yourselves? Ok, live in a fantasy world all you want. But the Russians couldn't win in Afghanistan, and you won't either. Nor will you win in Iraq. You've caused the slaughter of thousands of innocents, and all for nothing. Iraq is in a worse state now than it was under Saddam, and well you know it.

Actually, it was more peaceful before you battered your way in there. People had electricity and clean drinking water ... hospitals and schools. The academics weren't leaving in droves. And Iraq had more Ph Ds per capita then the USA. Your arrogance is unbelievable ...

You are. If you're blissfully unaware (ignorant) of the fact that without the U.S., you'd be speaking German, that's neither my fault nor my problem. Radical Islam is very similar in its goals. Iraq is a disaster, but a necessary one, it would seem.

As for me giving you "rubbish about profiles", it's my blog; in point of fact, I know where all of my commenters are located, and have most of their email addresses as well. It was you, the uninvited party crasher, that said "And you can read my IP address? Big deal!!!

Since all you are to me is a snide little troll, be advised that I'll be ignoring and/or deleting your comments henceforth...again, it's my blog. You could, of course, simply start over with a new profile. But your arrogant attitude will rear its ugly little head, and I will ignore and/or delete those comments too. You could say that since I allow comments, you posted some, which is quite true. However, I also reserve the right to delete them.

My game, my rules. Deal with it.

Since I generally only leave threads open to comments for a week, and it's been longer (since I was away), I'm shutting them off now...
