Iran stomps down a lose-lose path on nuclear issue

Events in Iran seem to be turning toward a lose-lose outcome, with Iran apparently recommitting itself to a nuclear-weapons program and foreign powers, including perhaps both China and Russia, ready to impose more serious sanctions in response.

From the Washington Post:

TEHRAN — Iran’s government will build 10 new sites to enrich uranium, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Sunday, a dramatic expansion of the country’s nuclear program and one that is bound to fuel fears that it is attempting to produce a nuclear weapon.

Ahmadinejad told the official Islamic Republic News Agency that construction of at least five nuclear facilities is to begin within two months.

The surprise announcement came two days after a censure of Iran by the International Atomic Energy Agency over the Islamic republic’s refusal to stop enriching uranium, a key demand of Western powers. The 35-member board of the agency also criticized Iran’s construction of a second enrichment plant in Qom, southwest of Tehran.

It’s hard to see how this ends well for anybody. Increased sanctions can only compound Iran’s serious economic problems, but the Iranian people, divided in many ways, have nonetheless rallied around the nuclear program as an symbol of patriotism and national sovereignty. The Obama administration’s effort to lure Iran away from that approach can now be said to have failed, but as the Bush administration found, alternative approaches offer even less chance of success.

Absent a dramatic reversal of course, Israel may now feel all but invited to act militarily, a step that most experts say will have little long-term impact on the Iranian nuclear program. The consequences of such a step are absolutely unpredictable and, given the volatility of the Middle East, to a degree uncontrollable. It would be a nuclear reaction without effective control rods, so to speak.

Why the double standard wrt nuclear weapons? AmeriKa and Israel both have hundreds of fusion bombs, Iran has yet to test even a fission bomb. AmeriKa put a puppet government on the throne of Iran in the 1950’s, Iran has never attempted to put a puppet government into power in Washington or Tele Aviv. End the double standard NOW.

Iran has a deep longing and fanatical desire to melt Israel and all of the people that live there, unless of course you think they are joking when they tell us this to our face.

Regardless of who lives in the WH, there is no way in god’s green earth that China would back sanctions:

China’s state-run energy behemoths have committed to investing $120 billion in Iran’s energy sector over the past five years, and few if any of those projects have broken ground. Iran is also China’s No. 2 supplier of oil. Earlier this week, Sinopec, one of China’s biggest oil companies, signed another memorandum of understanding with the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Co. to invest an additional $6.5 billion to build oil refineries in Iran.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/25/AR2009112504112.html

China may support giving Iran a stern warning, but I’d be surprised if they go as far as sanctions.

“Backers said the growing Muslim population was straining the country because Muslims don’t just practice religion.”

“The minaret is a sign of political power and demand, comparable with whole-body covering by the burqa, tolerance of forced marriage and genital mutilation of girls,” the sponsors said. They noted that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has compared mosques to Islam’s military barracks and called “the minarets our bayonets.”

Reports from CNBC personnel in Dubai that Iran will need to borrow all money required to build the reactors. With the pending crash of Dunbai’s real estate bubble, and the large number of banks that will take a hit & want to be “bailed out”, there is an opportunity to attach some strings to Iran’s quest. Hit them in the banks from whom they will need to borrow.

Maybe this is a little too much bandwagoneering since tout le left-blogisphere is griping about this, but still, it merits mentioning that Evan Bayh is a class-A jackass.

Or, as Glenn aptly put it:

Bayh wants to send other people into every proposed war he can find and keep them there forever ever without ever bearing any of the costs himself — not in military service for him or his family nor even in higher taxes to pay for his glorious wars. Sacrifice is for everyone other than Evan Bayh and his friends. He runs around praising himself as a “deficit hawk” while recklessly supporting wars and indefinite occupations that the country can’t afford and which drive us further into debt. He feigns concern over the “deficit” only when it comes time to deny ordinary Americans benefits which he and his family already possess in abundance. He is a loyal servant to the insurance and health care industries over his own constituents — as his wife sits on the Boards of numerous health care giants, who, right when Bayh became a Senator, began paying her millions of dollars in cash and stock. And this Sermonizer of Personal Responsibility is the ultimate by-product of nepotism, following faithfully and effortlessly in the footsteps of his Daddy-Senator, whose seat he now occupies. The fact that he’s a Democrat — and was Obama’s close-second choice for Vice President — just underscores how bipartisan these afflictions are.

Well, well…we seem to have an Islamic fanatic is the blogging bunch. When the world wakes up to the fact that Islam is a violent and twisted form of religion that entices its followers to act violently and behave inflexibly to any other form of reasoning, then there will not be peace in the world. Islam was created by an aggregeous individual who used violence and mythical statements to further his agenda. Cities, cultures, and countries were destroyed in the historical beginnings of Islam. Since when does a religion validate the death of an opposing voice? How valid is the statement, “God is great”, when the orator uses this reference when killing people? How valid is Islam’s god when its followers utter the phrase, “God willing”, when they approve Allah’s condonement of violence? This is not a “religion of peace”. This is a religion of inflexibility. This is a religion based on 6th century customs. This is a religion of absolute control for evil purposes. Why is the Middle East so unpredictable and violent? Why is all terrorism rooted in Islamic beliefs? Why have so many innocent people been killed at the hands of Islamic fanatics? The world has seen the evil results of communism. The world is now seeing the evil results of another twisted form of ideology. Iran is just another player on the world scene that is controlled by Islamic leaders who will not be diplomatically impressed by reasonable people. Islam requires unbelievers to be converted to Islam, or requires unbelievers to pay a subservience tax, or otherwise be killed. There is no other option in the teachings of Islam. Wake up people. Unless you want to be told how to live your life or how to choose your God, these people are unreconcileable.

International controls over capital movements and new global playing rules are needed to reinvent the global financial system, billionaire investor and philanthropist [Illuminists and criminal] George Soros said on Friday.

“That is what a new Bretton Woods conference could accomplish,” Soros told a lecture. “It would decide how to treat financial institutions that are too big to fail and it would consider new rules to control capital movements.”

Soros added that he expected China to maintain capital controls but said China will establish bilateral clearing accounts with some countries, like Brazil, denominated in yuans.

Such accounts could diminish the dollar’s status as the international currency, he added. [This is your warning that the Illuminati is ready to move to control all international capital movements. They want to control everyone and every corporation worldwide to bring it in line with a One-World central bank and a One-World currency.]

And if war is to be had, I’d just as soon those who’ve experienced it be the ones who decide if the cause is just and honorable to send American soldiers in harm’s way.

I will not be supporting Obama’s decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, unless he can tell me (and make me believe) what our objective is there and how fast the troops come home once the objective is met. We didn’t start this war, and we blew the chance to capture or neutralize the prime target. Now Policing the Taliban and protecting Pakistan is not a good enough reason to continue on. If the Afgani want to live under the Taliban, let them, only when the people have have had enough will the Taliban be overthrown.

“And the Truth Shall Make You Free”

There are three types of Islam:

1) Westernized Islam – a minority of Muslims in the U.S. are in this category. They worship Allah in sincerity but they also (because of their education and secularization) embrace freedom and Western democracy. They fear the other two forms of Islam probably as much as we do.

2) Basic Islam – most Muslims in the world fall into this category and many live in the U.S. They embrace Islam in its unbridled totality (educational, societal, legal, military, religious, etc.,). They may not individually murder or terrorize in the name of Allah/Islam but neither to they verbally condemn those who do. Radical Islam recruits from their ranks. This type of Islam must be marginalized in the U.S. as much as possible (including immigration) or given enough time and volume it will ensure the destruction of this Republic as we know it.

3) Radical Islam – these types of Muslims will stop at nothing to physically force their vicious schism of Islam on the world. They are pure evil and every effort must be made to totally eradicate their influence and existance from the face of the earth.

The far right wants to decide which countries can have nuclear weapons, but they want ALL Americans to have guns. Makes sense, right?

Jake, bombing Iran is an act of war, and all bets are off the table on Iranian restraint. I urge Iran to load their missiles with all the high level radioactive waste they have, and they have a LOT, for launch against the capital city of any attacker, you know, like Toilet Aviv.

Two perspectives here. ONE. Those who point out the double standard omit this factor: stewardship. Iran has long operated as a rogue state that sponsors international terrorism. That’s why the double standard is valid. TWO. I find it ironic that Book-boy is wringing his hands about Iran. After all, his policy on Saddam was to “trust him” (isn’t that the foundation of the anti-war position!)—but he doesn’t think we should trust Iran. What a freakin’ hypocrite!

It sure does ……………. Good nations can have weapons ……. bad ones cannot.

One correction though: not “all” Americans should have guns. Only Conservatives.

The House bill mandates, and the Senate bill strongly encourages, businesses to extend health care coverage to all employees. But the bills do not have exemptions to screen out illegal immigrants, who usually obtain jobs by using false identities and are indistinguishable from legal workers.

Yes, if things continue on as they have with Obama, I will choose to either vote for the opposition in 2012, or not vote, depending on the opposition candidates, if things continue on with the opposition as it has, I will simply not not be voting. Democracy in action.

With the Islamic terrorist problem they have in Israel that sure sounds sensible to me. If green Martians landed in the U.S. and began eating people alive I wouldn’t give the Martians guns either ……………………………. :o

On Nov. 4, on the 30th anniversary of the seizure of the American embassy in Tehran, the embattled reformers, again in the streets, posed an embarrassing dilemma for American diplomacy: “Obama, Obama, you are either with us or with them,” they chanted. By not responding to these cries and continuing to “engage” Tehran’s murderous regime, his choice was made clear. It wasn’t one of American diplomacy’s finest moments.-WSJ

I know which side he is on….

“I would not give the sweat off my left nut to protect israel, ever.”

Israel knows this; that’s why they are prepared to protect themselves. And I would not recommend irritating the Mossad. Thier patience is running thin.
