wow, where to begin...this commentary is as if the enemy is the US and the ally is Iran.

What a disgusting lineup of lies against our nation. Pathetic.

The Iranians will be enriching uranium in order to be self sufficient in nuclear fuel. It is the fear they will take it one step (or actually several steps) further and enrich uranium to weapons grade that is the core problem. However, there has been no verifiable evidence that Iran has any plans to do this.

I am truly amazed that after the pack of lies from Bush, Cheney and Rice about Iraq, that anybody is actually listening to them. As the article states, Iran is legally entitled to enrich uranium and the USA has no right or business telling a member UN nation what it can or cannot do, under the threat of attack. But the USA has a long track record of interfering in the affairs of other nations, deposing or assassinating their leaders, illegally invading nations on the basis of lies and breaking every international treaty it has ever signed. I had to laugh when the USA stated the other day that Iran was the biggest state sponsor of terrorism. In actual fact, Iran pales into insignificance when compared to the USA, the greatest global terrorist nation in the history of the world.

VT, you're right - the enemy IS the USA, the greatest global terrorist in history. The USA illegally deposed leaders of Syria in 1949, made war in Korea in 1950, deposed the Iranian government in 1953, organised a coup in Guatemala in 1954, made war in Vietnam in 1955, deposed the Laotian government in 1958, financed and backed an illegal coup in Cuba in 1961, deposed the government of Iraq in 1963 and installed Saddam Hussein, illegally interfered in Honduras and Guatemala in 1963, deposed the Dominican government in 1965, deposed the government of Ghana in 1966, invaded Cambodia and deposed the government of Bolivia in 1970, deposed the government of Chile in 1973, illegally invaded Grenada on the basis of lies in 1983, tried to depose the Nicaraguan government (Iran-Contra affair) in 1989, invaded Panama and kidnapped its head of state in 1989, attacked Iraq in 1990, bombed Afghanistan and Sudan in 1998, attacked Yugoslavia in 1999 and illegally invaded Iraq on the basis of a deliberate pack of lies in 2003. That's just a few examples. So if you want to compare Iraq to the USA, Iraq isn't even in the same league. As I said, the USA is the biggest global terrorist this planet has ever seen and the evidence is readily available to prove it.

Oh VT, I forgot to mention Venezuela, where the US CIA tried twice to depose and assassinate President Hugo Chavez because he had the temerity to recognise the USA as a terrorist nation and even worse, start selling Venezuela's oil for Euro, thus undermining the great US Petrodollar scam that had been fleecing the rest of the world for the past 35 years. Read Krassimir Petrov's article - The Iranian Oil Bourse, or William Clarke's book - Petrodollar Warfare. But the main thing for you, VT, is for you to open your eyes to the truth, examine the facts about your nation and realise that your government is trying its best to lead this planet into World War Three, merely to get a Republican elected President.

Right now, as we speak, the '52s are loading up the tons of ordnance that will be required to get Iran's "attention." Heavy ordnance, probably millions of tons of ordnance on those 70,000 B-52 Stratofortess intercontinental jet bombers with the eight jet engines blowing dark kerosene smoke as they approach their targets.

Can you imagine the sky so full of '52s trailing kerosene smoke that the sun is dimmed?

That is a lot of eight-engine jet intercontinental bombers, eh?

Eh, OZ boys, eight engines per bomber, that is a lot of horsepower, eh?

The Tupolev Tu-95 Bear intercontinental turbojet bomber, with the fine counterrotating propellers, well, it still don't got no eight jet engines like the '52.

The '52 wins. Bow immediately to our power and you might live.

The truth hurts doesn't it? It isn't left or right, it's about knowing your history. You probably think Oswald acted alone too.

The president of the country is a consistent liar, and he has a history of belligerence and destabilization of other countries. We don't know what exactly his motivations are, but based on experience we have to figure he's up to no good. Unfortunately it's tough to find any effective way to oppose his actions, since nobody can be sure exactly what he's got in mind. It's a shame, since most of the people of his country are reasonable and easy enough to get along with.

I'm talking, of course, about both Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and George Bush.

Let's say the President was going to shoot your mother in the neck. You threaten to kill the President, your mother gets shot anyway, and they spend weeks figuring out how to cut your dierck off so it hurts the most. Know much about "interrogation techniques?"

America is full of tough guys, not puerssies. They know how to make it hurt, and hurt some more, and hurt even more. Don't discount American combat operations, these guys are not wimps.

You Iraqis better be cheering when those thousands upon thousands of heavy, loaded B-52 Stratofortress bombers head to Tehran to kill and maim. Did you know that a B-52 jet bomber has eight, count 'em, eight jet engines. When you see all of the black kerosene smoke coming out of the rear end of a '52, you just know there is going to be trouble.

Now I got a Shiite bone to pick. Allah is not going to intercept our '52 bomber sorties. Allah is not going to do a damn thing to intercept those inbound heavy intercontinental bombers. They will drop their bombs on Tehran without interference from Allah. That is because ...

there is no Allah.

America owns God/Allah, and you got no claim to him, fools. We own God, you don't got no god on your side, so we are going to bomb you into the stone age.

If you don't like it, we may use poison gas on you. I suggest phosgene, but others suggest Sarin. Some sort of organophosphate, to make you die, and your little dogs, too!

Why fuerck with us, we own the entire God/Allah complex? Why make us kill your children and your little dogs, too? Why make us be cruel? Because you hate yourselves, that is all I can figure.

Your immediate option, before the bombers get airborne, is to surrender. Surrender your God, convert to Christianity, George Bush's Christianity. Save the lives of your children and your little dogs. Those heavy bombers mean business. The guys flying them consider themselves killer combatants.

If you make us kill you all, you are forcing us to murder you all. But since you have threatened to kill us all, it is self-defense.

I will be wondering about self-defense when I see the video of the ten thousand '52s over Tehran.

Bastards! Why not surrender and save us from our guilt about killing you and your children and your little dogs, too?

Christians, Muslims, Jews; slight variations of the same quackery using different books.

Read history, religions come and go, beer and wine remain! Time to pick a new drug, that mind altering one called religion is too addictive and kills WAY to many people!
