    Iran flexes muscle ahead of talks with major powers

    ARTICLE: Iran flexes muscle ahead of talks with major powers | Reuters

    TEHRAN, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Iran test-fired missiles on Monday which a commander said could reach any regional target, flexing its military muscle ahead of this week's crucial talks with major powers worried about Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

    The missile drills of the elite Revolutionary Guards coincide with escalating tension in Iran's nuclear dispute with the West, after last week's disclosure by Tehran that it is building a second uranium enrichment plant.

    News of the nuclear fuel facility south of Tehran added a sense of urgency to the rare meeting in Geneva on Thursday between Iranian officials and representatives of six major powers, including the United States, China and Russia.
    Dear President Obama,
    if you could just take a few days off from
    your series of
    numerous personal appearances,
    which I'm sure serve some vital national interest,
    and put a little effort into addressing the deranged
    madman developing nuclear weapons and missiles,
    and maybe the war in Afghanistan, it would be
    most appreciated,

    thank you,
    Oftencold.


    ADDENDUM: Minutes after I posted this, Fox news announced that Obama will be sashaying off to Copenhagen to lobby for the Olympics to be help in Chicago.

    I wonder, how many people who voted for Obama, thought they'd be getting a political version of Vince, Sham Wow guy?

    What, this madman?



    Or do you perhaps mean one of his descendants?

    No, this is no mad man, perhaps he's speaking about this mad man:



    Or perhaps one of the descendants of this murderous scum.

    As far as I know you too have acknowledged that he has murdered many.
    I am just doing my part here pointing out to the mad man work and how many innocents did he and his legion of evil have killed.

    No, I don't have any moral objections to violently expropriating capitalists if they try and actively resist their dispossession by landless peasants; there's hardly "murder" involved.

    It's just that our dear friend Oftencold mentioned a madman developing nuclear weaponry, presumably in the Middle East, and presumably concealed from American and other international inspectors, so I thought I'd mention a head of state who did that.

    So you have no moral objection to the murder of people simply because they are successful in life?
    I have already assumed that but I'm just willing to confirm.
    It's just that our dear friend Oftencold mentioned a madman developing nuclear weaponry, presumably in the Middle East, and presumably concealed from American and other international inspectors, so I thought I'd mention a head of state who did that.
    Oh my dear confused one you have made a silly mistake there!
    Oftencold was speaking about a tyrannical dictator that goes against his own people, not about a leader of a liberal democracy.

    Ah, those silly little mistakes.

    Dear boy, I'd prefer that you'd not pretend that you're sufficiently economically informed to finish a contention on this topic with me, as you and I both know you're not.

    Liberal democracies tend to avoid discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, creed, and the like, rather than maintain the supremacy of a specific ethnic/religious group to the extent that there's dismay and anger about the population growth of an ethnic minority. More importantly, internal domestic conditions are not necessarily indicative of the international policies of any political regime. The U.S. is a good example of this, as its internal structure is one of the most democratic in the world, yet it's been governed by a series of political administrations that have supported the violent destruction of democratic governments around the world along with the successes of authoritarian dictatorships.
