JUST A CROCK(ER)…

By ATWadmin On May 28th, 2007 at 7:08 am

The BBC were exultant this morning about the US having to engage in direct talks with Iran. As you may know today has seen their first bilateral public talks for almost 30 years. Iraq’s security is the only item on the agenda. The US and Iranian envoys in Baghdad, Ryan Crocker and Hassan Kazemi Qomi are meeting in the home of PM Nouri Maliki. The US is expected to present claims that Iran is providing technology and other support to Iraqi militia groups. For its part, Tehran says it has uncovered several spy networks run by the US and its allies inside Iran.

Now the media loves the idea of the USA having to grovel to Iran in the false hope that it can enlist Iranian support to make Iraq "stable." We all know that Iran has been a major source of instability in Iraq, and the fabulous Baker Boy’s contention that Iran can be a "stabilising" force in the region is so surreal as to warrant little further debate. Yet the media swallow it hook line and toxic sinker and then ask what is the US doing to reassure those poor Iranian Mullahs! I profoundly disagree with these bilateral talks as I think it only encourages the Mullahs into thinking the USA is weak. However given that they are happening I suppose the best thing that could be said during the talks is if Crocker informs the Mullahs that if they don’t back out of Iraq, and stop supplying the Jihadists with weaponry to kill our troops, then Iran – part of the axis of evil – will become the nexus for military bombardment.

TEHRAN TRUTH-TELLERS….

By ATWadmin On May 27th, 2007 at 4:52 pm

Truth can come forth from even the most evil of mouths and so when TIran’s thug-in-chief President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad states that western powers are "unable to act against Iran" – he is quite right. The day after the end of another hopeless deadline set by the UN Security Council to halt its nuclear program, Iran gives another insolent two fingers to the "international community" and all the UN and the rest can do is mutter about unspecified consequences if Iran continues to do so. It’s obvious that the UN is institutionally incapable of dealing with this situation in any meaningful manner and so the truth is that we are facing another repeat of Iraq in that the more dangerous the threat, the closer to the atomic dawn over Tehran, the more the "international community" will close its eyes, talk wistfully of negotiations that can produce nothing —- all the way to the mushroom cloud appears over Jerusalem!

BROWN-NOSING IRAN

By ATWadmin On May 27th, 2007 at 8:27 am

brown20blair.jpgPrime Minister-in-waiting Gordon Brown has been busy demonstrating one of the big differences between him and Tony Blair. For all his drippy lefty language, Blair was unafraid to use "hard power" to deal with Afghanistan and Iraq. That, of course, is why the MSM so despise him. But Gordon has other ideas as to how we cope with the Mad Mullahs in Tehran.  

"We want a peaceful settlement to the Iran issue," he said. Asked directly if he could rule out military action, Mr Brown said simply that multilateral action and economic sanctions were the best way forward. "

 

The difficulty is that the only multilateral actions possible revolve around ineffective economic sanctions, limited by EU financial self-interest. So, the "soft power" Gordon favours won’t work, and indeed has already proven itself absolutely useless. So, where to for Gordon – more multilateral conferences, more empty statements…..? 

TIME TO SURRENDER TO IRAN?

By ATWadmin On May 22nd, 2007 at 10:30 am

iran.jpgLet me be very clear. There is a difference between the people of Iran and the tyrants who rule them. I fully appreciate that there are many civilised people in Iran who loath the Mullahcrats in Tehran, but they are faced with a tyrannical and ruthless dictatorship who delight in visiting death on any who dare oppose them. But an appreciation of this should not lead to complete paralysis of thought and action. The news comes today that Iran is secretly forging ties with al-Qaeda elements and Sunni Arab militias in Iraq in preparation for a summer showdown with coalition forces intended to tip a wavering US Congress into voting for full military withdrawal, US officials say.  “Iran is fighting a proxy war in Iraq and it’s a very dangerous course for them to be following. They are already committing daily acts of war against US and British forces,” a senior US official in Baghdad warned. “They [Iran] are behind a lot of high-profile attacks meant to undermine US will and British will, such as the rocket attacks on Basra palace and the Green Zone [in Baghdad]. The attacks are directed by the Revolutionary Guard who are connected right to the top [of the Iranian government.


So what do we do – run away like the international left and the MSM suggest, or sort them out the mad Mullah regime that plots our own destruction? Is that such a tough call to make?

THE FINAL COUNTDOWN…..

By ATWadmin On May 17th, 2007 at 7:32 am

Interesting to read that Iran may be as close to 12 months away from gaining the ability to produce a nuclear bomb. Not only that, but the Mad Mullahs are also working feverishly to develop ballistic missiles that can reach central and Western Europe. Now why might that be do you think? Whilst the western world continues to shy away from the disturbing possibility that Iran’s leaders seek to deliver a really final solution, Israel in particular is being forced slowly but surely to the point where action must happen. Starting a military conflagration, in the form of an air-attack on Ahmadinejad’s nuke facilities, is an unwelcome prospect. But NOT doing this will result in a much worse position. Does anyone think that a nuclear Iran will be easier to deal with than one which is disarmed? 

WISE WORDS ….

By ATWadmin On May 16th, 2007 at 8:15 pm

Once again, we hear wise words from the shabbily treated former US ambassador John Bolton. He has spelt out that allowing Iran to gain nukes  would be as dangerous as “Hitler marching into the Rhineland” in 1936 and should be prevented by Western military strikes if necessary. Quite right too. We need to wipe the Mullah’s nuke capability "off the map" as Ahmadinejad might put it. Now of course this will drive some insane but as Bolton point out UN apathy and continued hollow threats will not make the issue go away.

Send in the planes.

A NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE DRAWS CLOSER…

By ATWadmin On May 15th, 2007 at 7:51 am

Nuclear_fireball.jpgSeems like Iran is getting closer and closer to being able to have the weaponry to produce a mushroom cloud over Israel. Inspectors for the IAEA have concluded that Iraan appears to have solved most of its technological problems and is now beginning to enrich uranium on a far larger scale than before, according to the agency’s top officials. 

We believe they pretty much have the knowledge about how to enrich,” said Mohammed ElBaradei, the director general of the energy agency, who clashed with the Bush administration four years ago when he declared that there was no evidence that Iraq had resumed its nuclear program. “From now on, it is simply a question of perfecting that knowledge. People will not like to hear it, but that’s a fact.”

But here’s another fact. Israel dare not let Iran gain nuclear weapons. The US, if in its right senses, dare not let Iran gain nuclear weapons. Why? Well, because the deranged Mullahs have already indicated what they will do with them; Hint – it includes targeting a certain Jewish state and wiping it off the map. The EU and the UN will continue to hedge on this, talk a lot and do nothing. It is up to the US and Israel to do what is necessary now – and that means a massive military strike. Doing nothing is not an option.

CHENEY AND THE MULLAHS…

By ATWadmin On May 12th, 2007 at 8:19 am

I was delighted to see that at least Dick Cheney is prepared to stand up to the mad mullahs in Iran and tell them plainly that  United States was prepared to use its naval power to keep Tehran from disrupting oil routes or "gaining nuclear weapons and dominating this region." And best of all, he said it in the cavernous hangar bay of the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis, one of two carriers whose strike groups are now in the Gulf. This is real leadership – putting it up to Ahmadinejad and his goon squad. No nukes for Iran seems a good slogan – wonder will CND run with it? 😉

NO FIXED HAIRSTYLE….

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007 at 7:10 am

rron261l.jpgHere’s ANOTHER story coming from wise man Jim Baker’s favourite"stabilising force" in the Middle East, Iran.

Iranian police have warned barbers not to give men western hair styles or to use make up on them. The move is part of a fierce crackdown on what is known locally as un-Islamic clothing, that this year is also targeting men. Hair stylists have been warned that they could lose their licenses if they do not comply. Police say that as well as avoiding western hairstyles and make up, barbers should not pluck customers’ eyebrows. I guess a short back and sides is out of the question! 

summer crackdown

By ATWadmin On April 26th, 2007 at 7:29 am

hejab_2_1_0.jpgThe Daily Mail: "This is not some medieval theocracy where females are hidden away or forced to do the will of their menfolk. Men and women sit in animated mixed groups at the lunch tables, conversing as equals. Headscarves are worn. It is still the absolute law. But they are worn in such a way as to make a fool of that law. They are pushed back as far as they can go without actually falling off, held in place by no more than a blast of hairspray, revealing the front parts of elaborate and often vertical hairstyles – frequently blonde. ….In a park by a lake, some teenage girls are splashing each other. Incredibly, several of them have illegally taken off their headscarves. Even more incredibly, their teachers pretend not to notice. This would have been unthinkable a year ago. What unthinkable things will be happening a year hence?"

Left – the police (David mentions below) in action last summer. And again on the right here at demonstrations for very basic rights:

Banning polygamy; Reversal of men’s uncontested right to divorce; Equal child custody rights for mothers and fathers; Equal rights in marriage (such as a woman’s right to choose where she works, to travel freely, etc.); Increase in the legal age of children to 18 years of age (currently girls are viewed as adults at 9 years of age and boys at 15 years of age, making them eligible to be tried as adults); Equal value placed on women’s testimony in court. There have been many dissident rallies the government has cracked down on this year.  Its this sort of thing the regime seeks to bury and distract us from.
