Friends, this is an abbreviated version of a news article issued by Novosti. Read the whole article on the link in News Links then wonder just how close we are to nuclear war thanks to the warmongering, greed-crazed, religion-addled idiots in the White House and their mindless, craven supporters: Blair and Howard. Enjoy your evening!

MOSCOW, March 27 (RIA Novosti) - Russian military intelligence services are reporting a flurry of activity by U.S. Armed Forces near Iran's borders...

"The latest military intelligence data point to heightened U.S. military preparations for both an air and ground operation against Iran," the official said...

Col.-Gen. Leonid Ivashov, vice president of the Academy of Geopolitical Sciences, said last week that the Pentagon is planning to deliver a massive air strike on Iran's military infrastructure in the near future.

A new U.S. carrier battle group has been dispatched to the Gulf. The USS John C. Stennis, with a crew of 3,200 and around 80 fixed-wing aircraft, including F/A-18 Hornet and Superhornet fighter-bombers, eight support ships and four nuclear submarines are heading for the Gulf, where a similar group led by the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower has been deployed since December 2006.

The U.S. is also sending Patriot anti-missile systems to the region."

What weapons can the Iranians use to defend their sovereign soil unless it impacts on the entire world community?

Although I laughed out loud at the first paragraph I was not laughing by the last one!

I can imagine the Muslim community cannot allow this second breach to continue unchallanged for fear their religious culture could be overpowered by a Christian one.

Something any self respecting Muslim could not endure in silence.

This war is not of my making, and I cannot prevent it - I can just understand the reasons behind the acts of terror that will be take place on innocent civilians who have no control over their government's actions.

Men, women and children will die badly and unnecessarily!

Not my preferred choice in dying being made the target of incidents from an aggrieved people who feel so helpless in the face of the world communities' silence.

We are all responsible for what will come of this latest act of aggression by a Nation that cannot see beyond its own selfish wants.

I am ashamed.

Mary, your comment, as usual, is spot on! There should be twenty million voices similar to yours. There is only a deafening silence.

The reason why there isn't more awareness has to do with the failure of education, of democracy, of vision, of leadership, of religion, of decency, of intelligence...

But, I agree, we are all responsible!

The only question I am left with is, "Why?"

Damian Zerek said...

This is becoming scary... our world is on the brink of war. With Iran I think it will become the boiling point for the Muslim world. Israel has already been flying its planes close to or into Iranian airspace. War is unfortunately inevitable it seems.

The Senate has voted for US troops to be pulled out of Iraq by 2008 and Bush has said that he will veto any such bill. I guess its cheaper to invade countries when your closer.

With Bush there is a trend. 2001 he becomes the president and a war begins; 2003 one year before elections and a new war; if this trend is true than expect a war anywhere from now till 2008 and if a republican wins extend that date to 2012.

Something needs to be done before the world is plunged into another mindless killing of innocent civilians.

"Oh the humanity!"

Famous words of the Hindenburg disaster.

Daniel said...

Something needs to be done indeed, Damian. But the world just sits on its hands and lets America do whatever it wants. Obviously some nations must think there is something in it for them and they fail to see the terrible implications.

Hand onto your hat!

What I can't understand is the goal. Why attack Iran. Surely not because of the so-called 'Iranian Bomb'.

That is a US manufactured dodge, a weapon the Iranians can never use even if they build one. Use it, threaten to use it, threaten Isreal with it, and the Iranians assure their total obiteration. Build it, and they'll spend all their energy keeping it out of the hands of extremists because the result is the same.

So what is Bu$hCo really out to do?

Daniel said...

The answer is easy, Kvatch. He who controls the bulk of the world's oil controls the economic destiny of the world (America already is the military Superpower). With Iraq and Iran in their carpetbag and the Saudis in their pocket, the deal is done!

We're talking about domination of the whole world here, Kvatch! That's the goal.
