    Uh...no. We don't need anymore wars.

    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    Fox News is reporting that Achmadinajad (sp?) says the U.S. is good at coming up with "movie plots" (just as I was thinking that Tom Clancy couldn't even make this up) and that Holder said that Iran needs to be held responsible. I will switch over to aljazeera in a few minutes to see what they are saying...

    Are you kidding? This would jump start the north east economy. Weapons manufacturing has been down a bit lately, which is why states like CT are getting down in the dumps, actually starting to FEEL the recession a little bit. Another war will result in calling back all the laid off high paid union workers, so they can start making money again, and spending it again.

    (I am being HUGELY cynical about this, I don't actually think it would be a good thing)

    That's what everyone thought of Afghanistan on 9/10 despite at least two confirmed attempted terror attacks on us soil...

    Funny, there was a just some journalist turned spy novel writer on CNN that said the same thing...the plot is too far-fetched. Regardless, did you expect Iran to admit it?

    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    At first glance the headline would seem a counterproductive/nuts move by Iran.
    But where else could they get the Saudi Ambassador but the USA.

    And In light of this:
    Saudi king ‘repeatedly requested’ US attack Iran: WikiLeaks
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/middle...Wikileaks.html
    Included in 250,000 documents being released by WikiLeaks this week was a secret diplomatic cable that indicated Saudi King Abdullah had urged the US ambassador to Iraq, Ryan Crocker, to use force to stop Iran's nuclear program.

    According to the document, Abdullah repeatedly requested that the US attack Iran. Other leaked documents also described how other Arab countries pushed for military action.

    One cable said the Saudi king "frequently exhorted the US to attack Iran to put an end to its nuclear weapons program," the British newspaper Guardian reported.

    The Saudi Ambassador to the US, Adel al-Jubeir, recalled in April 2008, "[Abdullah] told you [Americans] to Cut off the head of the Snake."

    Al-Jubeir added "that working with the US to roll back Iranian influence in Iraq is a strategic priority for the King and his government."

    [......]
    It makes Alot of sense.

    Of course i didn't expect them to admit it... and after watching aljazeera for an hour and saw no more mention of it than a single sentence on the news scroll on the bottom of the screen, I changed the channel...

    That makes me think of the novels where the bad guy is accused, and he scoffs, claiming such a far-fetched plot would only happen in a bad movie.
