    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    Some analysts skeptical of alleged Iranian plot
    By Reza Sayah, CNN

    U.S. officials say they are certain the bizarre plot against Ambassador Adel Jubeir was real.

    But some analysts say they are not. They find it unlikely that the Iranian government, or legitimate factions within, would be involved in such a tangled plot.

    They cite five reasons why:

    1. The alleged plot doesn't fit Iran's style

    (Snip)

    2. Iran would lose more than it would gain

    (snip)

    3. Iran has much easier targets to go after

    (snip)

    4. Iran is gaining in stature and isn't desperate for drastic measures

    (snip)

    5. The alleged plot is full of holes

    I wouldn't jump too fast to accept things not nailed down. It wouldn't be the first time we've seen misinformation too easily accepted as true.

    Yeah, I'm sure Israel was so "motivated" that they were willing to see their embassies in Washington and Argentina obliterated and untold numbers of their citizens murdered...........

    I'm constantly amazed at how you manage to have every thread derailed into just another attack-the liberals-and-Obama-because-everything's-their-fault thread

    Have you seen the books popular with conservatives now-a-days? Every Beck, Coulter, Hannity, O'Reily (to be fair not near as much) book that is on the best seller list basically is 100's of pages just demonizing the left.

    The one that amazed me the most is Coulters book "Demonic" which is a whole book demonizing the left based on people on the left demonizing others.

    Having said that though Sawyer would be rather disappointed to learn that in fact the worlds opinion of America just did happen to improve.

    I agree........ Conservatives should follow lib's and publish good, kind, and uplifting books that don't demonize others...........kinda like Al Franken's book "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot".

    Is that what you had in mind ???? Maybe Coulter is trying to follow in Fanken's footsteps by writing a book that demonizes the opposition as a ticket to a Senate seat.
