Damn The Damning Evidence


Here's the US's "evidence" that Iran is providing EFPs to the insurgency, offered up by three unindentified US officials (which is already a tell, if they had real evidence, they'd use their top guns to promote it). Already, I can see two problems with it that lead me to believe this is beingused as part of the case for an Iranian invasion by the US. And really, that believe the bulk of television watching morons to be too stupid to figure this out, but here goes.
1.)The lettering is in English. In Iran they read and write Farsi. Why would a country manufacturing weapons use a different language other than their own on them? We don't use Arabic on our weapons, because probably 99% of American read English, if they can read at all.
2.)The date of manufacture on this bomb, as indicated by the 3-2006, is absolutely wrong. Sure, for us it's 2007, however, for the Islamic calendar, it's 1428. So nnaturally, weapons manufacturers in Iran would use the infidels calendar as opposed to their own.
Of course, Iran denies any of this evidence, so the question becomes one of who do believe? The people of Iran, who are tring to prevent their country from being nuked by a crazed madman and his disassociatative frontman, or the people who were caught lying to us about our reasons to go to war with Iraq? What was the original idiom Bush mangled oh so many years ago? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, I won't get fooled again.

Actually, the Englich character markings are required for armamnet manufacture under international law.

However, the secondary point of your question is interesting. Under what circumstance would top Iranian officials intentionally send a signature to the US?

De-fucking-pressing. The Cheney Menstruation is laying the groundwork and the "liberal media" is being stenographers to "unnamed" white house sources.
Just enough people are swallowing this bullshit. We're fucked.

I'm still in the denial portion of the five stages of grief vis-a-vis this issue -- it can't really be happening, can it? Those psychos won't really attack yet another country, will they? Sweet Jeebus in a sidecar, they probably will...

Sadly, everything that comes from this administration is suspect due to their track record. When no one will put their name on a report, that's even more suspect. They lied us into Iraq so I guess if it worked then, it'll work now. God, I hope the American people have wised up.

If all military "leave" (vacation) was canceled for April, would that mean something? We'll see.

The anonymous commenter just seriously creeped me out. If that were the case, that would not mean anything good. I just had a 'holy shit' moment.

mikevotes what you said...is NOT truth..you speak a falsehood, English character markings are NOT required under ANY known international law. You can run a search on altavista images "Bombs" and find many with their nomenclature printed in the language of the country of origin.
Also it does not make sense and would be a law that could never be enforced!
