    But would they use it? I doubt it seeing it is not the west that seemed to have inspired their new found love of Nukes
    Do you know who the Twelvers are? Of course they'll use it.

    There are death to 'UK' rallies all over ME and has been there for some time.

    Hand on heart, do you really think Iran would attack a country with the most Nukes in the world AND has had a history of using it?
    I think Khomeni can answer that better than I can:

    “We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah. For patriotism is another name for paganism. I say let this land [Iran] burn. I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world.”
    -- Ayatollah Khomeini

    Do you know what the twelver sect is? They believe it is their duty to cause great instability to bring about the coming of the 12th Iman aka the Mahdi.


    I don't think so.

    Iran is all talk no action. It hasn't started a war for decades.
    They have committed numerous acts of war against the U.S. and Israel since 1979 and continue to till this very day.

    You'd be surprised at the threat a nuclear Iran poses for Europe.
    The nuclear arms race in the ME that would follow, and right after that, the terrorists who would put their hands on the Nukes.
    I can tell that they would have quite a lot of western folks in their "to nuke" list.

    The UK is just as much as threatened by the Iranian nukes,
    and the only difference between the UK and Israel is that Israel has the most advanced anti-missile technologies, deployed all over its territory.
    Where do you think the American aid-money is going to?
    American-Israeli developed technologies, especially from the kind of the Arrow system.

    Don't get me wrong, Israel doesn't want Iran to have nukes, but it is you who should worry and do something about it.
    It's really nice to pretend that they won't come for you and just ignore the reality, but just don't say that Israel didn't warn Europe when the mushroom clouds would appear all over the region.

    R-I-G-G-E-D.

    The 67% for Disco Stu is clearly rigged. If the Mullahs were not scared, they wouldn't have shutdown text messaging, facebook, Myspace and other non-controlled news outlets.
    A high turnout is usually not good for the incumbent. So WTF?

    Leftists ought to rejoice that Iminajihad was re-elected. They still have a anti-Semite ally running Iran.

    As many as it takes to convince people that we have a fairly good system in need of reform and that the Iranians are not ready for self government..

    Israel tacticians want Mahmoud Ahmadinejad win
    A SENIOR Israeli official said yesterday the consensus among his colleagues in Jerusalem was that a victory for the hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the Iranian elections would be in Israel's best interest.
    "There is no one who has served Israel's information program better than him," wrote columnist Ben Caspi in the daily Ma'ariv yesterday.

    Israeli security officials note that decisions regarding major issues such as the nuclear program are made in Iran not by the president, regardless of who he is, but by Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and a small group of senior clerics.

    "From an operational point of view, it doesn't make a difference who wins," said one official. And a Foreign Ministry official who deals with the Iranian issue said: "From an informational point of view, he (Ahmadinejad) is the best thing that's happened to us."

    Re: Ahmadinejad re-elected in Iran, Mousavi cries foul

    This stinks of election fraud. Looking at the polls on wikipedia, Ahmadinejad won by a bigger margin than anyone projected. The polls in Iran appear quite inaccurate, but this better than anything projected. Furthermore, the amount of votes gained by the smaller candidates is quite a bit smaller than most of the polls as well.

    This is going to be hard to swallow for the populace. Mousavi was not a radical, he simply offered a less aggressive stance in the foreign policy arena. There is no indication that he was going to recognize Israel or dismantle the nuclear program. If he had actually been objectionable, the guardian council would not have allowed him to run. It is clear that even small changes are not allowed to be made by the voting populace.

    The Iranian youth are going to have to take a long hard look on exactly how they are treated by their government. Facing such a blow, even after following the strict guidelines to prevent any major upset, won't be easy to take.
