  1. Us 'threatened To Bomb' Pakistan

    What do I have to apologize for ? And there is something immoral about making up B.S. stories to sell books. I think that's what Musharref did.
  2. America hating anti semites. Also, Mumia Abu Jamaal , Ira Einhorn and Roman Polanski. Plus, somehow they think Jerry Lewis is a genius.
  3. Show Me Where We're 'stealing.'

    (www.)"http://newsmax/archives/articles/2005/6/1/211629.shtml"]Link[/url] Iran Plotting to Seize Iraq Charles R. Smith Thursday, June 2, 2005 Tehran Sends Agents, Money and Bombs to Baghdad According to several top U.S. officials, Iranian intelligence agents are actively trying to take over Iraq. The Iranian operation to destabilize Iraq has been going full steam since the collapse of Saddam's regime in April 2003. Story Continues Below U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld recently stated that operatives belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps are currently infiltrating Iraq. There are mountains of evidence to support Rumsfeld's claims. In September 2003, Iraqi security forces arrested a dozen Iranian agents in Baghdad, allegedly as they were planning bomb attacks. According to the U.S. Defense Department, in August 2004, 30 Iranians were captured fighting for anti-U.S. cleric Moqtada Al-Sadr. In addition, U.S. and Iraqi forces guarding the Iranian border seized two truckloads of weapons reportedly destined for Sadr's Mahdi militia. Iranian Activities in Iraq "We are drowning in information about Iranian activities in Iraq," stated Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institute. Ledeen, a resident scholar and author, is also a leading Middle East policy analyst at the public policy institute. "After the battles of Fallujah and Hilla, we found names of Iranian contacts, locations of safe houses, telephone numbers, and photographs that document Iranian activities. That information led directly to the current campaigns against the terrorists," noted Ledeen. According to a recent article published in Jane's Defence Weekly, Iraq's General Security Directorate (GSD) chief Mohammed Abdullah Al-Shahwani accused Iran's embassy in Baghdad of masterminding an assassination campaign in which 18 of his agents were killed. Al-Shahwani claimed that raids on three Iranian safe houses in Baghdad uncovered a large cache of documents that linked Tehran to the campaign and to recruiting operatives from within the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq. Al-Shahwani claimed that the documents showed that Iran had funneled $45 million to terrorists inside Iraq as part of an overall destabilization plan. Treachery Backed by Friends "Welcome to the treachery championships of Iranian, Iraqi and Syrian – with Chinese, French and Russian interests lurking beneath – 'politics' which America has now frontally engaged," stated Scott Newark, a Canadian security analyst. "The Iranian Shia regime is concerned about an Iraqi Shia regime that might not be under its control although they're glad to see the Iraqi Baathists gone except that they helped fight and fund the enemies of the Great Satan," said Newark. "Meanwhile in Damascus, Assad the Lesser is hearing American footsteps but is equally antsy about Islamic forces that think Allah rather the Assad family should be in charge," noted Newark. "If anything might produce results that actually benefit the folks living in these countries as opposed to those ruling them – a remarkable concept called democracy – it's the American and hopefully Allied presence that provides it. Don't expect Newsweek or the N.Y. Times or Al-Jazeera to report it, but it's that 'light on the hill' specter of hope that has always been America's best feature that may just win the day in the end," said Newark. "I suspect that most Iranians and Syrians hope that America hangs in there long enough for them to wrest control of their countries like Iraqis have done to have a future free from the need for U.S. troops and the dictators that enslave them," concluded Newark. All Rights Reserved © 2006 NewsMax I don't think Iran is controlling EVERY terrorist in Iraq, I'm sure there are some 'free agents'. But they are definately the biggest player. The Madhi militia is the biggest group in Iraq, and they are a proven Iranian puppet organisation.
  4. France seems to enjoy hosting scumbags.
  5. You don't find these stupid headlines on CNN or any other reputable news agency because they are made up fairy tales. They'd be out of business in a week. But toads like Fiske can sit in his parents basement and churn out these fantasies because he doesn't have anything to lose. He doesn't have to report the truth, just sensationalized rubbish. The world laughs at guys like him and at people like you, bluesky, for swallowing his bunk.
  6. (www.)"http://msnbc.msn/id/14963302/"]Link[/url] Chirac says no evidence bin Laden has died French newspaper published details of alleged intelligence memo Updated: 40 minutes ago PARIS - President Jacques Chirac said Saturday that information contained in a leaked intelligence document raising the possibility that Osama bin Laden may have died of typhoid in Pakistan last month is “in no way whatsoever confirmed.†Chirac said he was “a bit surprised†at the leak and has asked Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie to probe how a document from a French foreign intelligence service was published in the French press. The regional newspaper l’Est Republicain on Saturday printed what it described as a copy of a confidential document from the DGSE intelligence service citing an uncorroborated report from Saudi secret services that the leader of the al-Qaida terror network had died. The DGSE transmitted the document, dated Sept. 21 or Thursday, to Chirac and other top French officials, the newspaper said. “This information is in no way whatsoever confirmed,†Chirac said Saturday when asked about the document. “I have no comment.†In Washington, CIA duty officer Paul Gimigliano said he could not confirm the DGSE report. The Washington-based IntelCenter, which monitors terrorism communications, said it was not aware of any similar reports on the Internet. “We’ve seen nothing from any al-Qaida messaging or other indicators that would point to the death of Osama bin Laden,†IntelCenter director Ben N. Venzke told The Associated Press. Last date known is June 29 Al-Qaida would likely release information of his death fairly quickly if it were true, said Venzke, whose organization also provides counterterrorism intelligence services for the American government. “They would want to release that to sort of control the way that it unfolds. If they wait too long, they could lose the initiative on it,†he said. The last time the IntelCenter says it could be sure bin Laden was alive was June 29, when al-Qaida released an audiotape in which the terror leader eulogized the death of al-Qaida in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Iraq earlier that month. Chirac spoke at a news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Compiegne, France, where the leaders were holding a summit. Putin suggested that leaks can be ways to manipulate. “When there are leaks ... one can say that (they) were done especially.†Earlier the French defense ministry said it was opening an investigation into the leak. “The information diffused this morning by the l’Est Republicain newspaper concerning the possible death of Osama bin Laden cannot be confirmed,†a Defense Ministry statement said. The DGSE, or Direction Generale des Services Exterieurs, indicated that its information came from a single source. “According to a reliable source, Saudi security services are now convinced that Osama bin Laden is dead,†said the intelligence report. There have been periodic reports of bin Laden’s illness or death in recent years but none has been proven accurate. According to this report, Saudi security services were pursuing further details, notably the place of his burial. “The chief of al-Qaida was a victim of a severe typhoid crisis while in Pakistan on August 23, 2006,†the document says. His geographic isolation meant that medical assistance was impossible, the French report said, adding that his lower limbs were allegedly paralyzed. The report further said Saudi security services had their first information on bin Laden’s alleged death on Sept. 4. In Pakistan, a senior official of that country’s top spy agency, the ISI or Directorate of Inter-Service Intelligence, said he had no information to confirm bin Laden’s whereabouts or that he might be dead. The official said he believed the report could be fabricated. The official was not authorized to speak publicly on the topic and spoke on condition of anonymity. U.S. Embassy officials in Pakistan and Afghanistan also said they could not confirm the French report. Gen. Henri Bentegeat, the French army chief of staff, said in a radio debate last Sunday that bin Laden’s fate remained a mystery. “Today, bin Laden is certainly not in Afghanistan,†Bentegeat said. “No one is completely certain that he is even alive.†© 2006 The Associated Press. It would be great if Osama did die a slow, painful death from typhoid, but I don't believe it till I see his filthy corpse on a slab. He's probably living in Paris. That is where all the dirtbags go.
  7. Thin-skinned Ahmadinejad Closes Two Reformist Newspapers

    ...'Musharraf declined to comment further, citing a book deal...' Funny how, after five years, he comes out with this now, right before the release of his book. Sounds like an attempt at book-selling hype.
  9. And the 6,000 were killed by 'Iraqi freedom fighters', setting off bombs in markets while old ladies shop. Cowards.
  10. (www.)"msnbc.msn/id/14789076/"]Link[/url] Iran closes down 2 opposition newspapers One ridiculed Ahmadinejad; ruling clerics renew effort to stifle dissent Iranian journalists of the prominent reformist daily Shargh read the last editions of their newspaper on Monday. The paper was closed down by the Iranian Press Supervisory Board on Monday because of what journalists said was a cartoon dealing with the country's controversial nuclear program. Updated: 7:09 p.m. ET Sept 11, 2006 TEHRAN, Iran - Iran closed down two opposition newspapers on Monday, one of which had recently poked fun at hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the way his government has handled nuclear talks with the West. It was a fresh show of determination by Iran’s ruling clerical establishment to silence dissent over its handling of nuclear talks with the West and deny reformers a chance to air their views ahead of elections scheduled for Dec. 15. The rights group Reporters Without Borders voiced concern last week about harassment of Iranian journalists, including prison sentences and interrogations. Ahmadinejad has purged dozens of journalists, university professors and government officials seen as supporting warmer ties with the West. Iran’s most prominent reformist daily, Shargh, or East, ran a cartoon Thursday depicting a horse and donkey facing each other on a chess board. The donkey — a symbol of ignorance in Iranian culture — has his mouth open and light around him, while the horse shows no emotion. The donkey in the light Iranian judiciary officials apparently took the donkey to represent Iran in nuclear negotiations with the West, journalists said. Ahmadinejad reportedly said he felt there was a light around him, and that world leaders focused unblinkingly on him when he addressed the U.N. General Assembly last year. Ahmadinejad is reportedly planning to address the assembly again later this month. “We got a call from the Press Supervisory Board saying that we have no right to publish our newspaper as of today,†Shargh editor Mohammad Ghouchani told The Associated Press. Iran’s official news agency reported the paper was ordered closed down for “dozens of violations,†including the cartoon’s publication and “publication of material against the rulings by the Supreme National Security Council.†The council handles Iran’s nuclear negotiations with the West. “In recent months, nuclear officials have been warning the press to be careful over what they publish over Iran’s nuclear policy and not write anything that contradicts what they do,†reformist lawmaker Esmaeil Gerami Moghadam told the AP. State-run television said Shargh was shut because it failed to appoint a new managing director to “more aggressively supervise material published in the paper.†The current managing director, Mahdi Rahmanian, denounced such a demand. “Pressure on the press to change their managing director is illegal. The law doesn’t allow the board to make such a demand,†he said. The Press Supervisory Board also ordered the political monthly Nameh, or Letter, to be closed down, IRNA reported Monday. ‘Insult’ from a poem The paper’s editor, Majid Tavallaei, said the reason behind the closure was the publication of a poem from dissident female poet Simin Behbahani. The text of the poem was not immediately available. “Publication of the poem is seen as the main reason for the closure. They have taken that as an insult,†Tavallaei said. Echoing the rhetoric of the nation’s 1979 Islamic revolution, Ahmadinejad appears determined to remake Iran by reviving the fundamentalist goals pursued under the republic’s late founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Upon taking office last year, Ahmadinejad replaced nearly all his country’s governors and lower provincial officials, as well as 40 ambassadors. Many of Iran’s top government officials are now either former commanders of the elite Revolutionary Guards or former hard-line security officials. Last week, he urged students to push for a purge of liberal, secular university teachers, and dozens of such instructors have been sent into early retirement during Ahmadinejad’s rule. ‘Press freedom predators’ Ahmadinejad and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei both appear on a list of “press freedom predators†compiled by Reporters Without Borders each year. Iran saw a wave of newspaper closures in past years amid a confrontation between reformers and hard-liners during the 1997-2005 tenure of reformist President Mohammad Khatami. The hard-line judiciary shut down more than 100 pro-reform newspapers and jailed dozens of editors and writers on vague charges of insulting authorities. But Moghadam said the new wave of press crackdown meant no tolerance for criticism ahead of upcoming elections. “It is a clear message that they don’t tolerate any voice of opposition. They also don’t want reformers to convey their message through Shargh to the people ahead of the elections,†he said. Iran is preparing to hold elections for the Assembly of Experts, a clerical panel that has the authority to choose or dismiss Iran’s top leader, and city council elections. Both are slated for Dec. 15. © 2006 The Associated Press. Way to go, Mahmoud. Another stab in the Iranian peoples back. I wonder how long the Iranian people will put up with that little creep Ahmadinejad and the medieval mullahs ?

(www.)"foxnews/story/0,2933,215231,00.html"]Link[/url] Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan Says He's Seriously Ill Friday, September 22, 2006 CHICAGO — Minister Louis Farrakhan said in a letter to followers this month that he is seriously ill, and he asked the Nation of Islam's leaders to carry on in his absence to make sure the movement "will live long after I and we have gone." Farrakhan, 73, said he began suffering pain earlier this year similar to 1998, when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent surgery. He said doctors discovered an ulcer in his anal area during a visit to Cuba in March. Since then, he has lost 35 pounds while battling "serious infection and inflammation," Farrakhan said in a letter dated Sept. 11 and published in the Nation of Islam's The Final Call newspaper. Farrakhan said he will work hard to recover "because I do not believe my earthly work is done." He said he asked his executive board to solve problems during his recovery. Farrakhan likened his situation to that of Fidel Castro, who temporarily relinquished power because of illness. "While many rejoiced — believing and thinking that if Fidel Castro and the Cuban Revolution expired they could move Cuba and the Revolution in a new direction — his absence from the helm only proved that Cuba will not fall apart over the absence or passing of their illustrious leader," Farrakhan wrote in the letter. He also warned followers to be "ever watchful for any smart, crooked deceiver and hypocrite who would create confusion over my present condition." Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.
  12. Us 'threatened To Bomb' Pakistan

    (www.)"http://hosted.ap/dynamic/stories/B/BUSH?SITE=MNWIN&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT"]Link[/url] Sep 22, 7:27 PM EDT Bush 'Taken Aback' by Musharraf Comment By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Bush said Friday that if a U.S. official tried to strong-arm Pakistan into fighting the war on terror after the Sept. 11 attacks, he didn't know about it. Standing beside Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, Bush brushed off any idea of disagreement, praising Musharraf for pursuing terrorists, including Osama bin Laden. "We're on the hunt together," Bush said after an Oval Office meeting with the general who is leader of the world's second-largest Islamic nation. Musharraf has contended that after the Sept. 11 attacks, then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage told Pakistan's intelligence director that the United States would bomb the country if it didn't become a partner in the war against terrorism. "The intelligence director told me that (Armitage) said, "Be prepared to go back to the Stone Age,'" Musharraf told CBS' "60 Minutes" in a report to air on Sunday. The president said he first learned of the purported conversation from news reports. "I just don't know about it," he said. "I guess I was taken aback by the harshness of the words." Musharraf declined to comment further, citing a book deal. "Buy the book," Bush quipped. Armitage said he never threatened a military strike but did tell Pakistan firmly that "you are either for us or against us." Armitage, who met with Musharraf on Thursday, told Associated Press Radio concerning the bombing quote: "I was not authorized to say something like that. I did not say it." In Pakistan, Ameer ul-Azeem, a spokesman for the hard-line opposition Islamic coalition Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, said Musharraf's contention would anger Pakistani people who have long believed that they were forced "at gunpoint" into supporting the war on terror. Bush's meeting with Musharraf, following the president's U.N. speech on Tuesday, gave the White House a new chance to persuade voters that Republicans have better credentials than Democrats on national security. However, with the November congressional elections approaching, it also offered a reminder that bin Laden is still on the loose five years after the Sept. 11 attacks. In a recent interview, Bush said he would order military action inside Pakistan if intelligence indicated that bin Laden or other top terror leaders were hiding there. Some Pakistani officials took issue with that, saying that Pakistan was a sovereign country. "All I can tell you is, is that when Osama bin Laden is found, he will be brought to justice," Bush said. Musharraf shrugged off the issue as an exercise in semantics. "We will deal with it. We are on the hunt together," Musharraf said. The Pakistani president later told students at The George Washington University that Pakistan "joined the war not so much for the world but for ourselves." He described his government as moderate and progressive and said, "I am the greatest believer in democracy." Musharraf seized power in a 1999 coup. Responding to a student's question, Musharraf acknowledged that "we are moving slowly" in reforming the Islamic madrassas, or extremist schools, in his country. But he said they accounted for only 5 percent of the country's schools. The United States has urged Pakistan to do more to stop militants from crossing from its tribal regions into Afghanistan. Violence fanned by Taliban extremists has reached the deadliest level since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled the hard-line government in Afghanistan in 2001. Pakistan, which has deployed 80,000 troops along the border, signed a truce this month with tribal figures in an area where bin Laden is believed to be hiding. Musharraf said the truce calls for no al-Qaida or Taliban activity. Some Afghan officials have labeled the truce as a deal with the Taliban, but Musharraf strongly rejected that. "This deal is not at all with the Taliban," he said. "As I said, this is against the Taliban, actually." Bush said Musharraf briefed him on the details of the truce. "When the president looks me in the eye and says, the tribal deal is intended to reject the Talibanization of the people, and that there won't be a Taliban and won't be al-Qaida, I believe him, you know?" Bush said. Bush is playing the role of middle man between Pakistan and Afghanistan - two U.S. allies in the war on terror who accuse each other of not doing enough to crack down on extremism. Bush will follow his meeting with Musharraf with one next Tuesday with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Then the three will have a sit-down and working dinner at the White House on Wednesday. Human rights activists are asking Bush to press Musharraf to restore civilian rule in Pakistan, end discrimination against women and stop using torture and arbitrary detention in counterterrorism operations. Instead of giving up his military uniform in 2004 as promised, Musharraf changed the constitution so he could hold both his army post and the presidency until 2007. Bush said that during their meeting, Musharraf renewed his commitment to holding elections in Pakistan next year. Associated Press Diplomatic Writer Barry Schweid contributed to this report.
