Over the past several years, Iran’s nuclear activities have commanded the attention of the international community. But the recent assassination of Hizballah foreign operations chief Imad Mughniyeh is a reminder that Iran has been — [...]
The latest to hit the news-wires today is Iran’s demand that the United States apologize for the “unfair accusations” that the Proletariat run by the Imams in Iran are developing a nuclear weapons program and not one for “peaceful” energy purposes.
After reading the fascinating piece by Claude Salhani, the Editor of The Middle East Times, [...]
Well, I guess we should have expected this! The deluded Iranians are saying that video and audio that the U.S Navy released showing their gunboats buzzing pretty close to the Navy warships is a fake.
Iran on Wednesday called video and audio released by the Pentagon showing Iranian Revolutionary Guards boats confronting U.S. warships in [...]
This is starting to get interesting. The United States today reported the several Iranian gunboats came “very” close to three U.S Naval Warships in the Strait of Hormuz. They were so close, that U.S ships were manning their guns and were about ready to fire on the gunboats when they just turned around and left. [...]
Well, NewsMax brings it up. I don’t think it is inconceivable actually. The newest National Intelligence Estimate totally reverses what they had said about Iran only TWO years ago.
The ranking Republican member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Pete Hoekstra, is “profoundly disappointed” with the way the intelligence community has handled the latest [...]
Middle East Imperative by: Jim Cash, Brig. Gen., USAF, Ret. was sent to me this morning by my friend loboyazoo and I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve not seen it before today, since it was apparently written September 2007.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Monday the “empire of the dollar is crashing,” a day after his country [...]
And that goes under a big “YEAH RIGHT”! Iran’s quasi leader Ahmadinejad said today that if anyone attacked Iran for the nuclear weapons program that Iran wouldn’t respond by using oil as a weapon.
Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Sunday that his country would not use oil as a weapon even if it is [...]
Jim Dunnigan at the Strategy Page is reporting that an emergency appropriation in the defense budget for $88 million in order to equip B-2 bombers with the ability to carry the largest conventional bomb in our inventory - the 15 ton MOP (massive ordnance penetrator). As Mr. Dunnigan points out….there are no targets in Iraq [...]

Iran has reached 3,000 centrifuges for their nuclear program. What this means is that they will now be able to make enough enriched uranium to produce a nuclear weapon within one year. This was a key step in their nuclear program. The clock is now clicking on Iran. Ahmadinejad, as usual, could care less what [...]
