love parades. They are fun to watch and they represent the best of what
you’ve got in your small town. Oh, what? Iran had a parade? Really? It
had a bunch of big missiles capable of reaching Israel and soldiers in
dress uniforms marching in lock step? That can’t be, their country is a
peaceful country that just wants to use nuclear power to light its
homes. Wait, you have pictures? Prove it!
That’s just one, oh, you have more?
Those are just pictures, do you have any words? From the Tehran Times you say? Prove it!
The enemies will bitterly regret any attack against
Iran, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Major General
Mohammad-Ali Jafari said here on Saturday.
As a united nation with strong defense capabilities, Iran has become
invincible and “definitely the outcome of any attack on Iran will be
bitter and regretful for the enemies,” Jafari told reporters on the
sidelines of the annual Defense Week military parade.
Although the enemy is technologically more advanced than Iran,
especially in the area of air power, “we can neutralize its strength
with our unique and special techniques,” he noted.
Iran will seriously respond to any “mindless” action of the enemies
by identifying their weak points through its unique techniques, he
Iran’s defensive industry is self-sufficient adding that the country’s defensive plans are practicable, he said.
“Now we are able to share the technology of our modern weapons with other countries,” he stated.
Jafari also warned that if any country allows the enemies to use its
territory as a launch pad for attacks on Iran, it will definitely be
considered an ally of the enemy, and Iran will respond with its
In other news, Blackwater, it turns out, was responding to a car
coming down the wrong side of the street right after an IED blew up
where they were. Here’s what The White Rabbit has to say about this:
Since everyone is second-guessing the U.S. guys anyway,
ask yourself this: If you knew the results of IEDs, you’d just seen
this explosion, and that car came at you despite the warning signs,
sound bombs, etc. … What would you do?
Watch the video of the aforementioned explosion.
If anyone deserves blame for this it is the insurgents and the
terrorists. They fight this war outside of the normal realm for the
rules of war. They don’t wear uniforms and hide among the population.
They blow themselves up to kill us and civilians as well. Leftists know
this and purposefully misrepresent the facts to hasten the US surrender
of Iraq to the terrorists.
The Tank brings to the forefront an old idea about christening an “unconventional warfare command.” W. Thomas Smith Jr,
the poster, is against the idea because it would just add another layer
of bureaucracy into the military significantly slowing down their
reaction time. I agree. If anything, layers should be taken out because
communication and cooperation between the branches becomes muddled and
haphazard as more fat gets added on. A case can easily be made for the
need of more soldiers but not more administrators.
In a blog called Back Talk comes information that the situation in Iraq is improving thanks to… Syria!
As ridiculous as it sounds, stop laughing please, it makes sense.
Basically, al Qaeda is filtering in fighters through Syria. To do this
they have to have operations there that undermine the Syrian
government. Syria is cracking down on them now. And this is stemming
the loss of life in Iraq:
Last month, 1598 civilian deaths were recorded at Iraq
Coalition Casualty Count. Of those, more than 600 were killed by
suicide bombers. This month, with one week to go, about 540 civilians
have been killed overall (roughly 180 per week), but very few have been
killed by suicide bombers. For al Qaeda’s body accountants to match
last month’s casualty count, more than 1000 civilians will need to be
killed over the next 7 days.
Michael Ledeen at The Corner has a post that tries to make a connection between the Syria/Iran WMD mishap and the Israeli commandos pilfering nuke evidence.
Maybe, he says, the commandos not only got the evidence but sabotaged
the facility? Maybe. The interesting part of this post is his synopsis
of the threat we face:
the Iranian/Syrian/North Korean axis is a serious one.
We are dealing with an international alliance aimed at our destruction.
And Venezuela is definitely a part of it; it seems Ahmadinejad is
headed for Caracas after New York, (remember that there is now a
regular flight that runs Tehran/Damascus/Caracas and back). And second,
Israel has demonstrated that one can successfully move against WMD
targets in Syria—complete with Russian air defense systems and Iranian
Revolutionary Guards troops to “protect” them—both from the air and on
Maybe somebody should ask Ahmadinejad about these events during his cameo appearance at Columbia University…
Yeah, if one of those intellectual gods even has the inclination to ask such a question I’ll be shocked. This picture from Crooks and Liars is more likely representative of what kinds of questions he’ll be asked:
Fukuda is going to be next PM in Japan.
Forbes has produced the most expensive IP addresses and tells you how to become a billionaire.
A bunch of links about the military from The Tank including stuff on TV!
Haditha lies busted.
Nuclear power in Iran is OK, but not OK in North Carolina. Probably has to do with Blackwater.
Conspiracy theorists are damaging legitimate conspiracy theories! AHHH!
