Iranian Presidential polls 2013

I think today is election day.

The last president, Ahmedinejad has reached his term limit and cannot run again. Which the Ayatollahs are probably glad about as he had been openly in defiance to them in the recent past.

Most candidates that may disagree with the ayatollah have been removed from the running, including former president Rafsanjani and others including Ahmedinejad's preferred successor.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

International Trolling - Or how to start a war

Consider this a thought experiment.

If Country A wants war with Country B, but also wants to be the righteous party, and suffer the least possible consequences to itself and its allies, how does it go about this?

First, Country B would need to be Isolated. They it will need to be "defanged" in order to control any possible damage to itself. Then the best part - Country B needs to be made desparate enough to be forced to attack first.

No innocent country attacks first. The Defender have the moral highground on their side.

Now let's apply this. Replace "Country A" with "USA" and Country B with Iran.

British Ambassador to Israel and the plot to attack Iran

A few weeks ago there was a "scandal" about the links between the Defence Secretary Liam Fox and his friend Adam Werritty.

Some suggested that the two were running a separate foriegn policy to the official one stated by the government.

Now the plot thickens and Adam Werrity , who is pretty much pro Israel and intervention in Iran.

"Mossad linked to Iran military blast"

A series of news reports linking Israel's intelligence agency the Mossad to a blast at a military facility in Iran, in which 17 people were killed and a further 15 wounded, has gained widespread coverage in the Israeli media on Monday.

While Iranian officials insist the explosion at the Bid Ganeh base was accidental, caused by the movement of ammunition, claims from anonymous western and Israeli officials that Saturday's blast was a covert Israeli operation have gained momentum.

Iran v USA



Ayatollah Khamanei said his nation is ready to take on the might of America in any war.

In a speech, Iranian leader said U.S. would face an "iron fist".

Iran has never been defeated by United Stated since the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Washington is desperate to break that record. It wants to show that it can achieve victory against Iran.

It is currently using the IAEA, International Atomic Energy Agency, to wip up fear of Iran. Aim is to make Arab nations take on Iran. That is because U.S. itself fears a war with Iran. It is in no position to confront Iran. U.S. forces are already struggling badly against the poorly armed Talibans. Some experts even speak of imminent defeat for America in Afganistan.

Shias Value Females



For men of Shia Islam, women are special status human beings.

That is why males do not stare at women. Men keep their eyes lowered. They honour women. Females are highly valued by Shia mulsims. Ask any Shia female how much they are appreciated by Shia men.

Shia females are respected the most in the world. Women know their high value in the eyes on Shia males.

Shia men highly regard females. They love their wives. They love their daughters. They love their sisters. They are very respectful to all women.

In Shia history, the holy ladies such as Fatima and Zaynab are models of beauty, peace, truth and justice.

This love is what Imam Ali, the Saint of God, has given to Shia men.
