    Edging closer to war

    http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satelli...cle%2FShowFull

    According to the Israeli daily Ma'ariv, whether the United States and Western countries will succeed in toppling the ayatollah regime diplomatically, through sanctions, or whether an American strike on Iran will eventually be decided upon, Jerusalem has put preparations for a separate, independent military strike by Israel in high gear.
    Sneh also visited Switzerland and Austria last week in an attempt to lobby those two states. Both countries have announced massive long-term investments in Iranian gas and oil fields for the next decade.
    "Investing in Iran in 2008," Sneh told his Austrian hosts, "is like investing in Krups Steelworks in 1938, it's a high risk investment." The Austrians, according to Sneh, turned pale.
    אויר הרים צלול כיין וריח אורנים
    נישא ברוח הערביים עם קול פעמונים
    ובתרדמת אילן ואבן שבוייה בחלומה
    העיר אשר בדד יושבת ובליבה חומה

    ירושלים של זהב ושל נחושת ושל אור
    הלא לכל שירייך אני כינור

    Well I guess that is one form of diplomacy - Go to countries that invest in Iran and tell them that you will be planning to attack them, and those investments.

    Brilliant!

    I know the Atolla is supporting Admen..whatever his name is...for 4 more years in Iran. That knucklehead isn't going anywhere anytime soon. The world could bust the balls of that regime if they would just tighten the clamps and cut of Iran completely. The people of Iran would have another "revolution". But unfortunatly they won't...

    I know some people on this board don't like FNC, but this guy is a regular contributor and he writes some good stuff.

    In what Ahmadinejadís allies have described as a ''conclusive statement'' on Saturday, 23 August, 2008, Khamenei ordered the former Qods Force commander-turned-president to plan on keeping his post for a second four-year term. According to the state-run Fars News Agency, he said, "Do not think that this year is your last year as head of the government. No. Act as if you will stay in charge for five years." He added ''Imagine that this year, plus the four that follow, you will be in charge, and plan and act accordingly.''
    Insert pithy saying here.

    First of all, I've only posted what's been reported. I haven't stated one way or the other whether it's good or bad.

    If you want my opinion, I think it's necessary to make these preparations.

    I was wondering why everyone was pressing opinions and judgement against you. You offered no opinion when you posted the thread.

    You're right though...preparations should be made. Make every effort to resolve diplomatically. If diplomacy fails, what are your next options and are you prepared.

    I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

    All things being equal, when you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
