    Can't be as bad as Wallstreet's puppet candidate, which (fortunately) seems to be failing in its mission

    (actually, Khamenei would like a puppet like romney, considering he likes to spend all the country's resources on the military)

    I don't know if they're suicidal or not, but nothing would really surprise me. The mullahs who are running Iran behind the scenes are extremists. Ahmadinejad is only a puppet.

    I have corrected you presenting irrelevancies in this thread. I know someone like you, who's near only intent is to attack Israel, making up crap along the way, hates being confronted on this. Suggestion... don't like it, don't do it.
    better suggestion:
    if you don't like what i post, don't read it

    Your presentation of Israel is an idiotic thread derailment, presented by someone who would prefer to present their biased agenda than actually address the topic/issue. You are well known for this behavior.
    what i have noted is that we have one country, iran, which has offered to provide assistance to American disaster victims
    that country willing to send America assistance is also a country targeted by israel, which solicits American help to target iran
    so, it does not appear unreasonable to wonder what assistance would be offered by our 'friend' when our 'enemy' has reached out to help our people
    and we find the answer to that question is absolutely nothing; israel has not offered a thing
    and that has to be galling for those in the US whose sympathies reside with actions of the israeli government

    Your denials are irrelevant.
    i have established a legitimate nexus between comparing the offer of iran with the offer of israel. thus far, you have done nothing to show that nexus is other than a legitimate one

    Perhaps you can con some folks, but you do crap like this, frequently.
    no one is compelled to believe what i post. just as no one is obligated to believe your comments. it is for each forum member to review what has been presented and make their own conclusions

    And you're not being informative. You're presenting and agenda. There's a difference.
    i am discussing the topic, "Iran Offers to Send Emergency Aid Team to Stricken New York", and pondering whether our biggest 'ally' in the region has offered any form of disaster assistance to us when our biggest 'enemy' in the region has graciously tendered its own offer of red cross-like assistance




    Nothing to do with the topic. Zero.
    everything to do with the topic. country a is our enemy and offers aid. country b wants us to bomb country a, but offers no aid. that dichotomy may be an indicator of the true character of the nations. one - who may be targeted by us - offers help. the other, doing the targeting and seeking our help to do so, offers no form of assistance

    I know you would like to interject your hatred of Israel into every thread, no matter how non-sensical it would be.
    i have told you already, i hold no hatred toward israel
    but unlike those of your ilk, i am not willing to overlook its inappropriate polices and practices


    My suggestion would be that you cease doing this. I know that will reduce your post count significantly. Too bad.
    thanks for your suggestion
    i have filed it appropriately
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Do you not understand the facts or do you just ignore them?

    In 2008 Obama raised almost $16 million from Wall Street. John McCain received about $9 million.

    This time around Romney has received about $8.5 million.

    The fact is that Obama has given more taxpayer dollars to investors in the form of bailouts or government handouts to start-up companies than any president in history, and thus has brought the US in greater debt than any time in US history.

    Last time around Wall Street was obviously thinking of their pocketbooks when they supported Obama, now they are finally voting for their country.

    Your attempt to deny the reality of what I said is irrelevant. You are wrong... and of course will not admit it.


    better suggestion:
    if you don't like what i post, don't read it
    No, I'll keep reading and demonstrating how dumb what you post is. Don't like that? Too bad.

    that country willing to send America assistance is also a country targeted by israel, which solicits American help to target iran

    and we find the answer to that question is absolutely nothing; israel has not offered a thing
    What you have done is derail a topic to further your hatred of Israel. It's pretty much all you know how to do. I'm glad I can point this out and will continue to do so.
    and that has to be galling for those in the US whose sympathies reside with actions of the israeli government


    i have established a legitimate nexus between comparing the offer of iran with the offer of israel. thus far, you have done nothing to show that nexus is other than a legitimate one
    You have done nothing of the sort. You have posted an irrelevancy based on your personal agenda. Compare Iran's "offer" to the fact that Great Britain has not offered? Why not post that? Bubba... you are so transparent in your sole focus... "I hate Israel". It's funny watching you squirm right now.


    no one is compelled to believe what i post. just as no one is obligated to believe your comments. it is for each forum member to review what has been presented and make their own conclusions
    That's true. And in this thread, presenting your agenda where it has no relevance can certainly assist in members observing the irrelevancy of your comments. I'm just pointing this out. People can believe what they want.


    i am discussing the topic, "Iran Offers to Send Emergency Aid Team to Stricken New York", and pondering whether our biggest 'ally' in the region has offered any form of disaster assistance to us when our biggest 'enemy' in the region has graciously tendered its own offer of red cross-like assistance
    No, you are not discussing the topic. The topic has zero to do with Israel. Just because your hatred of Israel makes you want to add them to topics that have nothing to do with that country doesn't mean it IS topical. Your derailing the thread to further your agenda. Says something about you... nothing that is not already known, though.

    everything to do with the topic. country a is our enemy and offers aid. country b wants us to bomb country a, but offers no aid. that dichotomy may be an indicator of the true character of the nations. one - who may be targeted by us - offers help. the other, doing the targeting and seeking our help to do so, offers no form of assistance
    Nothing to do with the topic. The only true character that it identifies is that of you... derailing a topic about aid to victims to do nothing but further your hatred of Israel agenda. Shows how little you care about actual aid.


    i have told you already, i hold no hatred toward israel
    but unlike those of your ilk, i am not willing to overlook its inappropriate polices and practices
    And I have told you already that you words are meaningless when compared to your actions/presentation. I know you don't like your inaccuracies being confronted. Too bad.

    thanks for your suggestion
    i have filed it appropriately
    Excellent. As I said... don't like it? Too bad.

    In general, the difference in response to this compared to Katrina by international governments couldn't be more stark.

    It's an interesting question to ask why that is. The international response to Sandy is entirely private, but Katrina had a mixture. Why is that? Scale, recession, a president you want to embarrass?

    Re: Iran Offers to Send Emergency Aid Team to Stricken New York

    The Iranians offer help and there are people here who think the Iranians want to harm America. Allow me to put things into context and hopefully by the time you finish reading you might just hold a more focused rational view.

    Iran wants to harm America ? First question is WHY? would they want to harm America ? So far America has gone out of its way to harm Iran with sanctions and "options on the table" so if you were an Iranian wouldn't you be just a little upset ? But what have the Iranians done in response to the sanctions, threats, Cyber attacks, acts of sabotage, the assassination of Nuclear Scientists ? NOTHING.

    The Iranians are rational actors and there are high ranking intelligence personnel in the US who have said as much. Iran has never threatened the US and contrary to misguided belief they have NOT threatened Israel. They said they will defend themselves if they are attacked and rightly so and they have a well disciplined Army to use to defend themselves from a pre-emptive strike.

    US Awards Iranian Brain Surgeon. Yes you read that right The US awarded Majid Samiei, noted Iranian brain surgeon, its golden prize for contribution to neurosurgery April 2010. American Surgeons would regularly travel to Iran to learn cutting edge techniques. During the Iran Iraq War Iranian Surgeons had to deal with thousands of serious head injuries and their expertise in the field is world renowned ..Now that is cooperation .. Were the US Surgeons harmed or kidnapped ? NO They returned to the US where they used their new found skills to save the lives of US Citizens.

    Nuclear threat ? We hear noises coming out of Israel that a Nuclear armed Iran would be a Global threat.. Really? The Iranians have signed the Nuclear non proliferation treaty..Israel refuses to sign.. The Iranians allow inspections whilst Israel refuses to allow inspections of its Dimona plant. Iran has no Nuclear Weapons and no desire to have them for they said "If we had a Nuclear Weapon what would we do ? when the USA has Thousands of weapons" (That is a rational actor putting his country first) For the count Israel has near or more than 300 Nuclear Weapons including Thermal Nuclear Weapons and they like the US have threatened to use them ..Israel also employs "The Samson option" which is basically a suicide attack on the whole world. So WHO is the real threat ?

    Terrorism ? This is a shameful subject for although Iran does not use terrorism in any shape or form they have found themselves having to defend themselves from vicious accusations and if you were to put the accusations into context they amount to a terrorist attack on the Iranians. Recent accusations is claiming they had prior knowledge to 911, They were also accused of the failed Federal Reserve Bombing which if you studied that case you would be in tears of laughter. I'll say no more on that matter except to say Will someone PLEASE tell the FBI to stop grooming the mentally unstable so they can arrest them on "Terrorist" charges.

    Well that is my thoughts on the subject.. I pray the Iranians generous offer is accepted and i pray like many Americans and Iranians that a positive outcome might be forthcoming.

    The Israelis would not like that level of cooperation and i say Big deal ! Israel is no friend to the USA if you want the truth, They use you.. Ariel Sharon said as much as did Netanyahu. Would you like me to quote them ?. The Lavon affair and USS Liberty attack is still fresh in peoples minds; NEVER forget that.
