“Iran is already showing signs of aggression. Just two days ago, Iranian Navy supply ships surrounded a Romanian oil rig in the Persian Gulf. One of the ships opened fire on the platform after the captain was denied entry to the rig. Then, five Iranian commandos armed with Kalashnikov machine guns climbed onto the platform, rounded up the rig’s crew onto the helicopter pad, and tied up the rest in the cafeteria.” (http://www.moneyandmarkets.com/press.asp?rls_id=392&cat_id=6)
This is a true act of aggression. Yet I did not see it anywhere on the news. I heard about it while listening to the radio. I think Americans need to focus more attention to the Persian Gulf since we have a large military presence there. I was really upset that this was almost ignored by the press. However, we know what color shirt John Mark Karr wore and whether or not he had a good sleep.
As of right now, the Romanians and the Iranians were able to reach an agreement and called it a commercial dispute. Is this the end of trouble from Iran? I don’t believe so.
Well, I guess that the August 22 Surprise was all a rumor! Thank goodness for that. However, I notice that Ahmadinejad is playing the Kim Jong Il/Saddam Hussein game with the UN. Do I think he will give up his nuclear program under UN pressure? Ha ha ha! If he doesn’t what will happen? Will he get a nasty letter?
Charles Krauthammer wrote a column last December about Ahmadinejad’s plans for a apocalypse. After Ahmadinejad was elected, he put millions of dollars of government funds in place in Iran where the 12th Iman is supposed to return. Ahmadinejad predicts that this Iman will return in two years. Now we have a war between Israel and Hezbollah.
Ahmadinejad said that it would reply to the West about ending its nuclear program on August 22. It is said that date marks the day the Prophet Mohammed ascended into heaven. There is a rumor that Ahmadinejad has a surprise for Israel on that day. Will he “light up” Jerusalem’s skies on that day? Will the West be able to stop him? Is this just a rumor? Will it be a nuclear attack, terrorist attack like 9/11, or more missile attacks? I think the plot in our Anti-American Axis drama has thickened. Iran should be closely watched the next couple of weeks.
In my opinion, I believe that this whole war with Israel was started by Iran, in order to create chaos and a world wide hatred of Israel. The weeks will show whether or not my theory is correct.
I usually do not like to simply copy things from the internet. I like to write with my own words. However, this speech from Ahmadinejad is worth posting in full. The speech aired on the Iranian News Channel and was posted by MEMRI.org.( http://memri.org/bin/latestnews.cgi?ID=SD122906) (Bold type mine)
This quote especially caught my attention- “Today, the Iranian people is the owner of nuclear technology. Those who want to talk with our people should know what people they are talking to. If some believe they can keep talking to the Iranian people in the language of threats and aggressiveness, they should know that they are making a bitter mistake. If they have not realized this by now, they soon will, but then it will be too late. Then they will realize that they are facing a vigilant, proud people.”
