ahmaditwerp.jpgDid you read the breaking news that Iran had released another letter by captured British sailor Faye Turney, this time calling for the withdrawal of troops from Iraq? Boy, has she been busy writing ever since she got kidnapped. This is another contrived insult, a further humiliation of Ms Turney and of the impotent British Government. Margaret a Beckett has "grave concerns" about it – bet that will have Ahmadinejad a trembling.

I’ve been following the debate on ATW and more broadly across the web. What do we do? Just let Iran play these games and mutter further platitudes about being ever so concerned? The UN and EU won’t do anything, anytime fast. Whilst it would be helpful if the UN did produce a strong-hitting condemnation, it won’t happen because too many of its membership DELIGHT in what is now happening! Half the UN supports Iran.

Folks, we’re going to have to go to war with Ahmadinejad. All the rest is just bluster. Whether we do it now, in three months, in 3 years, it’s going to happen. This regime is the CENTRE of the axis-of-evil. It is the source of instability in the region. It is the chief funder of terrorism. It sees itself as having an apocalyptic vision, destroying Israel and better still the Great Satan, the USA. All the diplomatic nonsense being talked about will achieve nothing. Iran is an evil manic regime, and its leadership needs decapitated.  Now.

  1. Shift the forces over from Iraq? Serious practical considerations make this difficult.

  2. Doesn’t it just show that the Iranians aren’t that good at propoganda. I mean this is so transparent and fake that no-one will believe it. Genuinely good spin is subtle and well crafted. This sort of thing is just blunt and crass and even the most vehement anti-war critic will hardly believe that the sentiments expressed in this letter is genuine.

  3. Mahons,

    You are absolutely right as is Colm. However my point is that there is a day of reckoning to come and I think we, rather than the 12th Imam’s dining pal, should choose it. I am certain diplomacy will fail our cause, though it may help Iran as it pursues the right to wipe Israel off the map. There will be a war, I wish there wasn’t, but I think we need to face the truth.

  4. David – I am out tommorrow so I won’t be chiming in. An especially feel good ATW jukebox selection appears mandatory.
    I have grave concerns over Iran, same as i would over Taiwan if something should happen there now (the Chinese must lack the air & sea capacity). We can’t overstretch. On the other hand who wants to be having this discussion when it isn’t just 15 servicement but a threatened use of nuclear weapons. Grave times.

  5. Mahons,

    Look forward to your return! Will look into the ATW jukebox "The Final Countdown" has already been used.

  6. David – You sound as if you WANT the Endtimes?
    Religious convictions are SCARY!!

    BTW isn’t Nigel Farage an obnoxious creature?

  7. I thought this WAS the end times? You mean it’s going to get WORSE?

    Re the topic at hand, it’s getting really worrying now. I wonder what they’re doing to the poor woman to make her say and write this rubbish.

  8. >>There will be a war, I wish there wasn’t, but I think we need to face the truth.<<

    Hype!
    The sailors will be released and the whole affair forgotten about within a week or thereabouts.

  9. I tend to agree with Cunningham here, but I am not as certain of a speedy release today as I was a few days ago.

  10. What is Britain going to go to war with David? As I understand it the Brit armed forces are stretched as a high E string now. NuLabour has seen to that.

  11. Stu,

    You have a point, Labour has undermined our military since it came to power. But our military are still proficient, though Govt has let them down.

  12. >>>Doesn’t it just show that the Iranians aren’t that good at propoganda. I mean this is so transparent and fake that no-one will believe it. Genuinely good spin is subtle and well crafted.

    absolutely correct. yet rightworld deliberately allows itself to believe its own enemies propaganda. hawks cant function without self fulfilling prophecies.

    >>>Hype!
    The sailors will be released and the whole affair forgotten about within a week or thereabouts.<<<

    the likely outcome. with the added bonus of having public perception moulded for any future action. just whip out the march 2007 footage as a wee reminder and bobs your uncle.

  13. Whether we like it or not Iran is waging war. The advantage of doing something definitive now is that it is less risky than waiting; we don’t know if or when Iran will have nuclear weaponery.

  14. David,

    I think Iran would love to provoke a war with Britain. That way the US would get involved in a half-hearted way, not committing full force, and (more than) half of the US would ask why they were going to war for a stupid country that hasn’t even got rid of its monarchy and whose best people have mainly got up and left, and who have bad teeth.

    That’s not saying we shouldn’t go to war anyway. 🙂

  15. I think our troops should leave Iraq. Preferably they should leave in large numbers over Iraqs eastern border.

  16. David,
    When you use words like axis of evil and so on you can sometimes make yourself sound as manic as you know who.
    Ever thought about why half the UN – representing three-fourths of the world’s population – support Iran? I suppose it couldn’t possibly be that Iran is (marginally) less in the wrong than its opponents, by any chance? Or are you saying that three-fourths of the world’s population simply haven’t read enough of the Jerusalem Post?

    Mahons,
    When you say serious practical considerations I presume you mean like oil and stuff.

    Ross, you ain’t satisfied with 3000 Americans and 300,000 Iraqis dead, are you?

  17. Nigerian: Ever wonder why so many are emigrating from the Middle East, and are beating down the doors to immigrate to Europe and the Great You Know Who?
