He then suddenly demolishes his own argument with this caveat: "It is far from certain that Mr Ahmadinejad plans any such cataclysmic events precisely for August 22."
So why, exactly, did the Iranians choose August 22 as the date for giving their answer to the US about nuclear development? Probably for bureaucratic convenience. When they promised a reply "by the end of August", they didn't actually use the word "August", but the Iranian equivalent. If you look up the Persian calendar, you'll see that August 22 just happens to be the end of the month known as Mordad.

... no, you know what? I'm not even getting in to it until this situation with my account is resolved.
GOD ONLY KNOWS what I'll be accused of if it turns out that I was right about the fact that it looks like either...
A) Iran may declare itself a nuclear power by a test. Followed by saying they have several more where that one came from.
B) Iran may declare itself a nuclear power by nuking Iraqs Capital with GZero being the GZone itself. And saying they could do a lot worse to Israel if they don't back off Gaza and Lebanon right away.
C) Iran may declare itself a nuclear power by NUKING ISRAEL ITSELF!
Do you guys realize how close we are to a full out nuclear exchange?
We're talking DAYS AWAY depending on what Iran ment by...
"We'll give you our answer on the 22nd."
You have NO IDEA how scared the US military and other militaries are right now. EVERYONE IS ON HIGHTENED ALERT OVER THIS.
DID YOU GUYS NOT KNOW THIS WAS GOING ON?! AT ALL?!
BESIDES THIS ONE THREAD?!
THIS IS THE MAJOR NEWS ON EVERY OTHER MESSAGE BOARD ON THE NET AND ATS IS BARELY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE ON THIS TOPIC?!
I'm wasting my time here.
.. if the staff wasn't busy canceling the accounts of people who DO actually have the time to read just about every major article on the net and bring that info back here to ats for discussion then ats would actually have users who can post topics of value and perhaps even start a decent discussion of them.
But it seems like all the mods here are good for is instead being arbitarily canceling these accounts.. or sorry.. "Putting them on Hold but will be resolved soon" but never are.
Get my point?
I've known about this August 22nd thing for WEEKS NOW... IN FACT..
I'm TAKING IT SO SERIOUSLY I'm traveling 12 hours to be with my family during that time because I THINK ITS GOING TO BE THAT BAD.
At the least I'm not taking any chances with it anyways.
You should all do the same. Get you BoBs together and get ready to evac your home locations and move out of the cities as QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE... you might even want to camp outside of town the day before... no I'm not kidding. Yes it could get that bad.
