Ahmadinejad: Obama must choose between Israel and Iran | Iranian – Iran News | Jerusalem Post

Posted by Casey on November 11, 2009

Iranian President Mahmoud...

The jihadi world is making a go at picking America’s friends. Will the ‘O’ listen?

Jerusalem Post:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on the US to choose between Israel and Iran on Tuesday night, according to Iranian state media.

Speaking in Istanbul at the 25th Session of the Standing Committee for Economic and Commercial Cooperation (COMCEC) of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the Iranian president said that it was up to US President Barack Obama to illustrate his motto of “change”.

“The support of both Israel and Iran can’t go hand in hand,” he was quoted as saying by IRNA. “No change is made unless great choices are made.

“We would welcome the changes, and wait for big and correct decisions to be made… We will clasp any hand that is extended sincerely toward us, but changes should be made in practice.”

Addressing the same conference a day earlier, Ahmadinejad said that capitalist excesses caused the global economic meltdown and were un-Islamic, as leaders at a Muslim forum touted their religion’s banking system a way to revive battered economies.

Tried telling you all the jihadis were socialist.

Iranian Approval Of US Drops 5% Since Obama Was Elected

Posted by Casey on June 8, 2009

It’s close to the margin of error I mind you. However, best case scenario is that Obama has done nothing to make hostile nations like us. Worst case scenario is that he’s actually pissed them off more.

It’s bad enough that he continues to anger most of our allies, most notably Israel, but to accomplish nothing with our enemies is in a league of its own.

A rare poll of Iranians says that few of them have favorable opinions of the United States, a view that hasn’t changed much from before the election of President Barack Obama.The survey, taken last month, shows that 29 percent of Iranians view the U.S. positively. In February 2008, a similar poll of Iranians showed 34 percent with favorable views of the U.S.

But at the same time, support in both surveys remains strong for democratic institutions like free elections and a free press.

Obama: Failing To Make Friends Of Our Enemies

Posted by Casey on January 13, 2009

I know, I know … you’re shocked. 

The blindingly optimistic number 2’s who supported Obama under the premise that Bush alienated the world, and Obama was going to mend fences, are realizing that our enemies don’t give a damn if it’s Bush or Obama.

Naturally, we must discuss Iran.  After all, Iran is only an enemy because of Bush according to many libs.  Surely Obama will mend fences, and calm everyone down … right?

Hardline demonstrators burn posters of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama, during a demonstration in support of the people of Gaza, in front of the Swiss Embassy in Tehran January 13, 2009

Oops … guess not.

Obama is not winning any friends among America’s enemies, and he is alienating one of our closest allies (Israel). This is just the latest anti-Obama demonstration in Iran, and Iranian officials have been critical of Obama before he even takes office. This includes Mahmoud himself.

So far Obama has managed to anger higher ups in Iran, Turkey, Israel, Hamas, Hezbollah, and al Qaeda. Notice how similar this list is to the one that has those angry at Bush. With the exception of Turkey and Israel of course.

Obama and his supporters are learning the same lesson the anti-war protesters who were kidnapped in Iraq learned. It doesn’t matter what race you are, what political party you belong to, or even what religion you are. All that matters is that you are an American … the infidel … the enemy.

Iran Attacks Kurds In Iraq

Posted by Casey on March 24, 2008

As you recall, Iran was just caught helping the insurgents again in Iraq by the US military. Now they are attacking our allies, the Kurds, inside of Iraq as well. Iran is doing everything they can to provoke us at this point. The only question is will it work, and if it does how much of a response will it receive?

LA Times:

Iranian artillery shelled three border towns in northern Iraq where Iranian Kurdish rebels are believed to be operating, an Iraqi Kurdish official said Sunday.

Meanwhile, hundreds of Kurdish protesters lobbed stones at police and soldiers in southeastern Turkey in a fourth straight day of clashes that have killed two people and injured dozens.

The shelling hit the towns of Marado, Razda and Dolakoka and lasted about two hours, said Azad Watho, a top official in the Iraqi city of Sulaymaniya.

Watho, the administrator of the towns, said the shelling had targeted the fighters of the Party for Free Life in Kurdistan, or PEJAK, but had no more details.

Tehran had no immediate comment.

Eventually, the US is going to have to address the Kurd situation better than we’ve done up to this point. The region is too volatile to allow the Kurds to get into skirmishes with Turkey, and Iran. Even though the Kurds may have a point, and these incidents only involve small factions in most cases.

Surprise! Iran Caught Helping Insurgents, Again.

Posted by Casey on March 12, 2008

I know, I know … we all understand that Iran is doing its best to provoke the US. The evidence is so overwhelming that you couldn’t possibly believe it to be manufactured; unless you were such a mental midget that you barely register a point on a standard intelligence test. So here’s the latest evidence the US military in Iraq is submitting.

MNF-Iraq via World Tribune:

U.S. military officials are charging Iran with renewed operations to destabilize Iraq.

Rear Adm. Greg Smith, a spokesman for American forces in Iraq, said Sunday that U.S. troops recently uncovered a cache near Baghdad of weapons made recently in Iran. Smith also said the Iranians had been recruiting and training Iraqis in Iran, according to statements by Iraqi detainees.

U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Raymond T. Odierno and Navy Adm. William J. Fallon last week charged Iran’s government of undermining the government in Iraq.

Odierno, speaking at the Pentagon, said Iran represented the most credible long-term threat to Iraq. Both he and Fallon testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that there was evidence that Iran was fomenting insurrection in Iraq and was providing training and equipment.

Smith said the U.S. based the assessment on Iraqi detainees who been trained last year.

Yes, you read that right … Admiral Fallon testified that Iran was supporting insurgents in Iraq. This is only important because there are a lot of idiots who don’t know anything about Fallon, and his issues with the White House. They’ve been saying that he was removed because he opposes war with Iran. This is completely untrue. The White House, and the Pentagon, doesn’t take kindly to their people committing insubordination by speaking with the press without authorization. Especially if that press service happens to be Al Jazeera. Fallon is guilty on all counts, he knew better, and should have been forced out.

**

As a side note, the Harvard Economist did a study on the impact of the MSM’s anti-war lies on the terrorist/insurgents resolve.

Are insurgents in Iraq emboldened by voices in the news media expressing dissent or calling for troop withdrawals from Iraq? The short answer, according to a pair of Harvard economists, is yes…

Yeah, no duh.

U.S. & Iranian Navy Clash – Update: Video Added

Posted by Casey on January 7, 2008

This is still developing so we may get new information as time goes on.

Five Iranian boats threatened US warships, and said they were going to blow our ships up. The US Navy had just received the order to fire when the Iranians broke off their “attack.”

Fox:

Five Iranian Revolutionary Guard speedboats took threatening actions toward three U.S. Navy ships sailing in the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday, FOX News has confirmed.

The U.S. ships — a cruiser, a frigate and a destroyer — were passing through the strait en route to the Persian Gulf when they took defensive action to avoid striking the close by Iranian ships and armed their weapons, but neither side fired any shots.

The small Iranian boats reportedly came within 200 yards of the U.S. ships, and also threw boxes into the water ahead of the U.S. boats before speeding off. It could not immediately be determined what was in the boxes.

The Associated Press, citing an anonymous Pentagon official, said the incident occurred at about 5 a.m. local time Sunday.

“Five small boats were acting in a very aggressive way, charging the ships, dropping boxes in the water in front of the ships and causing our ships to take evasive maneuvers,” the Pentagon official said.

“There were no injuries but there very well could have been,” he said, adding that the Iranian boats turned away “literally at the very moment that U.S. forced were preparing to open fire” in self defense.

The AP source said he didn’t have the precise transcript of communications that passed between the two forces, but the Iranians radioed something to the effect that “we’re coming at you and you’ll explode in a couple minutes.”

I recently responded to a list making its way around the internet on the top 10 things Americans want. I made my own list of the REAL things Americans want, and both addressed the Iranian situation. I pointed out that the ball was in Iran’s court. I wonder if the Revolutionary Guard commander will get another medal for this endeavor like he did when they illegally kidnapped the British sailors last year.

Iran Enriching Uranium In Huge Amount … Israel Ready To Strike

Posted by Casey on November 8, 2007

Remember when Iran told the world that they only wanted to have heavy-water nuclear reactors so they could cure cancer and AIDS? Then they claimed to have cured AIDS without the help of uranium? Funny thing was that they didn’t end their nuclear program with that great scientific breakthrough (that they didn’t share with anyone). Perhaps Mahmoud Ahmadinejad saying Iran didn’t have any gays had something to do with it. Then again, that was just a slip of the tongue.

Anyway, we all know there have been some major problems with Iran cooperating with the UN on their nuclear program. They have been impeding the UN’s ability to monitor their program and they are enriching uranium at a march larger scale than originally thought.

Just so you know, about a 100 enrichment centrifuges are necessary to enrich uranium to about 3.5% to be used in a nuclear reactor. You’d need thousands of enrichment centrifuges to enrich uranium to 90% for a bomb. Iran has 3,000 enrichment centrifuges, and Israel is getting itchy.

A claim by President Ahmadinejad that Iran has 3,000 working uranium-enriching centrifuges sent a tremor across the world yesterday amid fears that Israel would respond by bombing the country’s nuclear facilities.

Military sources in Washington said that the existence of such a large number could be a “tipping point”, triggering an Israeli air strike. The Pentagon is reluctant to take military action against Iran, but officials say that Israel is a “different matter”. Amid the international uproar, British MPs who were to have toured the nuclear facility were backing out of their Iran trip.

Even before President Ahmadinejad’s announcement, a US defence official told The Times yesterday: “Israel could do something when they get to around 3,000 working centrifuges. The Pentagon is minded to wait a little longer.” US experts say 3,000 machines running for long periods could make enough enriched uranium for an atomic bomb within a year.

What’s most amazing about this fiasco is the UN’s flip-flopping of the issue. First the UN says Iran is violating the treaty, then they aren’t … etc. It’s like the oil-for-food scandal all over again.

More Iranian Students Protest Ahmadinejad

Posted by Casey on October 8, 2007

These kids are living on borrowed time.

The headline says that these protests are “rare”, but that is blatantly false. Mahmoud has been having a lot of trouble with students protesting him the past several years, and he has responded harshly.

AP:

An estimated 100 students staged a rare demonstration Monday against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling him a “dictator” and scuffling with hardline students at Tehran University.

Ahmadinejad, who was giving a speech to a select group at the university to mark the beginning of the academic year, ignored the chants of “death to the dictator” and continued with his speech on the merits of science and the pitfalls of Western-style democracy, witnesses said.

The protesters scuffled with hardline students who were chanting “thank you president” while police looked on from outside the university gates. The protesters dispersed after the car carrying Ahmadinejad left the campus.

Given that several students have been arrested in recent years for this same act … these students must now look over their shoulder.

Proof Syria & Iran Collaborate On Chemical Weapons

Posted by Casey on September 18, 2007

Hopefully you’ve heard about Israel (with the help of Turkey) attacking a nuclear cache in Syria the other day.

Now Jane’s Defense is reporting that a collaborative effort between Iran and Syria to make chemical weapons resulted in a severe accident.

Just so you know … Jane’s is the MOST respected source of its kind.

Proof of cooperation between Iran and Syria in the proliferation and development of weapons of mass destruction was brought to light Monday in a Jane’s Defence Weekly report that dozens of Iranian engineers and 15 Syrian officers were killed in a July 23 accident in Syria.

According to the report, cited by Channel 10, the joint Syrian-Iranian team was attempting to mount a chemical warhead on a Scud missile when the explosion occurred, spreading lethal chemical agents, including sarin nerve gas.

Anyone remember Iraqi General Georges Sada?
