Iran Nuclear Physicist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, Killed By Bomb

Iran Nuclear Physicist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, Killed By Bomb

Commented Jan 13, 2010 at 13:27:56 in World

“First some comments about the hit. Obviously the CIA has no style. Ok, so they thought: Middle East country, terorrism, boom bada boom etc. etc. So how do we kill this guy? We blow him up, it will fit perfectly in this place. I just really do not like this kind of rudimentary thinking. Even a sniper shooting would have looked less conspicuous.

What I am wondering however is: who are they trying to fool? The Western public? I’m sure most of them would actually approve such a hit in the name of quieting their anxiety about Iran’s nuclear weapons. What the heck? I think most Americans are buying this anti-terorrism stuff so hard that they are willing to close their eyes to about anything, just so they can sleep one more night under the illusion of safety.

“So if it is in the news it means you have to accept it, otherwise you are just weird. Not to mention trying to think for yourself/ That would even border terrorist mentality. Funny idea Americans have about democracy.

“What if his work had to do with something even more dangerous than atomic bombs and the Iranians just preferred to call him a nuclear scientist without getting into details?

Very good point by LegalCodex: "The Manhattan project had tons of theoretical physicists working on the program"

“The American Public:

“-Give me one good reason why we should invade Yemen!”

The American Government:

“- A guy from Nigeria blew up his pants on Christmas, which is very anti-christian and anti-democratic, and we made you believe he has something to do with Al Qaeda. And Yemen is a muslim country and they are all terrorrists anyway.”

The American Public:

“-Err… Ok, that’s good enough for me. Let’s blow them all up! Yuppy! Fun! Wait! Where the hell is Yemen dude…? Err…”

Up in the Air: Obama's Terrorism Failure

Commented Dec 30, 2009 at 03:59:31 in World

“SO AL QAEDA? This guy was Al Queda? The same Al Queda which organized an operation such as 911? The same Al Queda, the leader of which could not be caught even by the army and secret services of the most powerful state on earth? I don’t know man, I had more respect for Al Qaeda. This guy could not even blow his pants.

Farouk, you’re a disgrace to the Al Qaeda and to terrorism in general. Yes, and I hope you will remember that the next time those nice CIA agents men sacrifice their time trying to teach you something.

Or maybe it was just supposed to be a Christmas scare. Oh, those Al CIAda guys really make me go up the wall with their psycholology g0ing on there. I don’t know even conceive how to deal with something like that. Oh man… Oh, wow…

Romania Since Ceausescu: The Ethnic Dog That Didn't Bark in the Balkans

Commented Dec 23, 2009 at 03:41:50 in World

“From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Etymology_of_Romania

Socio-linguistic evolutions in the late 17th century led to a process of semantic differentiation: the form "rumân", presumably usual among lower classes, got the meaning of "bondsman", while the form "român" kept an ethno-linguistic meaning. After the abolition of serfdom in 1746, the form "rumân" gradually disappears and the spelling definitively stabilises to the form "român", "românesc".

The name "România" as common homeland of all Romanians is documented in the early 19th century. This name has been officially in use since December 11, 1861.

English-language sources still used the terms "Rumania" or "Roumania", borrowed from the French spelling "Roumanie", as recently as World War II, but since then those terms have largely been replaced with the official spelling "Romania".”

“Thank you Jim Rosapepe and Sheilah Kast for saying these things about Romania on this day. I think this compensates for other articles I read today, which really insist on seeing only the dark side of Romania. Thanks.
