war thou art afoot
take thou what course thou wilt.

'Bushehr launch big win for Muslims'

A member of the National Assembly of Pakistan praises the inauguration of Iran's long-delayed first nuclear power plant, saying it is "a great triumph."

The inauguration of the Bushehr power plant was a great triumph not only for the Iranian nation but for all Muslims across the globe, Fars news agency quoted Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) Secretary of Information Ahsan Iqbal as saying on Wednesday.

Despite the US pressure, the Pakistani government carried out its first nuclear tests in 1998, he said, adding Iran is currently doing the same which is a matter of honor for Islamabad.

Iqbal further pointed out that the United States and its allies will never damage the goals of the Iranian nation.

Iran started loading fuel into the Bushehr plant in the south of the country on August 21. The reactor will be fully fueled by the end of September.

The Islamic Republic argues that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful applications, including electricity generation.

Don't mistake Israel's ostensible calm as acquiescence. Israel needs to dissimulate to try to obtain any scintilla of surprise that she can when she finally does attack Iran, which she will. I feel that Bolton's comment that the Iranian nuclear hydro plant won't be touched by Israel now that it is functional, because that would cause radiation leakage--is false. It is precisely radioactive hot zones caused by limited nuclear devices or attacks, that will render those Iranian facilities unrepairable. What other choice does Israel have when Obama has denied her the bunker busters she needs.
The Iranian threats mentioned in this article are an obvious response to the UAE official's statement that he cannot tolerate a nuclear Iran. Israel's problem is that it will have to pre-emptively strike Hezbollah and Hamas rockets at the same time as Iran's nuclear facilities. But don't underestimate Israel's creativity when it's existence is so severely threatened, as it currently is. Expect a massive attack with Iran's internet, computer and telecommunications all jammed; Israel's submarines deployed, and other surprises launched. Unfortunately, there will be civilian collateral damage, and that includes Israeli, Palestinian, Lebanese and Syrian casualaties as well as Iranian ones. Expect this war to be a catalyst that creates severe economic disruption globally.

Obviously the several responses of Israeli firsters would propel Israel to a real disaster for itself, and which it would rightly deserve for attacking Iran. The real issue for Israel' s bellicosity is its desire to have complete and solo hegemony in the Middle East. Necessary to this is the propaganda spewed by Israel to wit that Iran is an existential threat. The Iranian leaders are not crazy. The Israeli leaders are completely crazed to maintain hegemony. They
have no intention to make a real peace with the Palestinians.

It seems Iran has no qualms about bombing everyone and anyone suspected of aiding in any bombing of its country. Iran's rules of engagement are without limitations and do not follow any respected treaties or conventions.
Iran says it will bomb Israeli cities - and its reactor. Isn't the risk of nuclear fall-out the reason why the western analysts believe it is too late for Israel or the US to bomb the Bushehr reactor. Iran is definitely reading a different rule book.... Maybe we should get a hold of their rule book and totally disregard human rights and civilized conventions of war too. I don't think we would lower ourselves to their level of play; but should the time come when Israel's survival, or any other neighbouring country for that matter, becomes an issue, then anything goes. Iran will have in fact dragged us down to their level of play. We could then take off the gloves. This is something that has recently cost Israel in its engagements with Hezbollah and Hamas - placing too much emphasis on avoiding civilian injuries, despite both conflicts being initiated by the other side.
What an evil bunch of rulers in Iran that would lash out and destroy anything and everything in their vicinity. I wonder if Iran's leaders are asking themselves, "why us?". I doubt it. Stupid and ignorant people do not even know they are stupid or ignorant. Ignorant is not bliss - it has devastating repercussions for followers of an ethical way of living.

By specifically targeting the Dimona nuclear facility in Israel, the Iranians would be effectively launching a nuclear attack on Israel in light of the universal assumption that the country possesses 100-250 nuclear weapons in its arsenal. Israel could argue that their own attack by presumably conventional weapons would be to prevent a nuclear war in the future, and so can logically respond with wide international support with an attack that could vaporize much of Iran. Has the Revolutionary Guard or the Supreme Leader fully considered this probable scenario?

Iran will be destroyed by the God of Israel when it tries to attack Israel. Israel knows this and is not afraid.

But the God of Israel is the Allah of Iran.
