    Really dumb analogy. He's IRANIAN.

    This just in for all the anti-semites in the world. Judaism is not a nationality. It's a religion. Try to keep that distinction in mind when posting on internet forums.

    Are you making an anti-Semitic comment?

    I am well aware of what technically a Jewish person is. And yes it is a person who follows the Torahic teachings or Judaic faith. It's religion.

    Although you may want to look at the recent developments in the Israeli Knesset. Apparently as of last year an Israeli citizen must swear allegence to a Jewish Democracy. Care to explain how religion has been embedded into nationalism and the democratic process?

    Hey, you're the one who has a problem with Jews serving in the U.S Congress, not me. Do you have a similar problem with Catholics serving in the U.S. Congress?

    What does an Iranian serving in the Iranian Parliament have to do with an Iranian serving in the Knesset? Or the U.S. Congress? Or a Jew serving in the U.S. Congress?

    I'm getting a whiff of something here that isn't terribly pleasant and is normally found only on fringe websites.

    What do you want to bet that the Jew serving in Iran's parliament had to swear allegiance to Iran's government? When serving in any government, they kinda expect you to swear allegiance to it.

    BTW, don't let the saber-rattling scare you. Before we took Iraq down, people were saying "OMG! WW3!!!" and "Nukyuler Epoxyclips!" and "Oh they'll shoot missles at Israel and the whole Middle East will go up in FLAMES!!! Russia and China will get involved!! EEK!!" and so on....


    Didn't happen.
    Clearly a voice of reason in this thread.


    I brought this up months ago the Iranian stated the bases had no value whatsoever and he was just talking. This is a lot of nonsense.

    Now the threat has been made more forceful:

    Our military might has reached such a point that today, we are able to target any point or base in the world at any moment and with any intensity, Brigadier General Hossein Salami said in an address to a gathering of armed forces in the shrine city of Qom on Wednesday.

    Next comes the Kool-Aid. It is very hard to take threats like these very seriously.

    Even so, remaining vigilant and keeping Iran from gaining nuclear weapons is paramount in maintaining peace and stability in the region.

    A pretty clever deception actually. Rangoon and Togo and Luxembourg and Vatican City can ALL "target" any base in the world as well. Whether or not they could actually do anything serious to the "target" is a completely different matter.

    General Salami? I don't mean to be culturally insensitive, but hahaha.

    Isn't that supposed to be "The Holy City of Qom", also known as "You Can't shoot this Place".
