Nearly 12.00 here so 22/8 is almost over somewhere - nothing's happened! What a surprise. This is just a feeding frenzy of nuttiness.

That you're not, sorry for the question.

Since you didnt provide a link initially and Romania is fair way away from Iran, and the spat of hoaxes in this thread, I assumed it might be a hoax. I apologize

Subz, I never included the word "World" when I said, "hellbent on destruction". You seem to be privvy to information that the rest of us are not, perhaps you can elaborate as to the sources of your information, as you seem to the the SME here.


If they want to use their enriched uranium for power plants, so be it, you have nothing to hide then, and should be able to be monitored thusly.

I am not in Iran and I am not part of their Nuclear program so I have no way of knowing what their true intentions are. What I do know, however, is I don't trust them.

subz, since i am the one who started this thread and have constantly throughout it tried to stop inane posts like the one at the top of this page and asked to ONLY tackle serious issues only, i am hardly likely to throw in a hoax thread for the hell of it. when i reported the story i stated there were no details yet, which happens often with breaking news on the bbc webby. sorry if im ratty about it but im getting fed of of trying to police this thread

Ok, fair comment. What did you mean by that then? He's hellbent on his own destruction? Iran's destruction? Help me out here.

For what it's worth im the FSME for Other Global Politics, not Other Current Events, easy to make mistakes over words isnt it


I am privvy to information which includes the fact that the IAEA has never once accused Iran of pursuing a nuclear weapons program. I also know that Iran has never prevented the IAEA from inspecting any of its nuclear sites until this morning, after the IAEA was shown to be complicit in enforcing extra-NPT aims (American political goals) which the Iranians never signed up for when they agreed to the NPT.

Like I said, up until yesterday Iran had never stopped the IAEA from inspecting any of their sites. I would speculate that yesterday's unprecedented refusal was in response to the IAEA's complicity in trying to enforce the United States will on Iran outside of any justification contained in the NPT.

The NPT is a voluntary treaty which explicitly approves any signatory to enrich uranium for nuclear power generation. Iran has not broken any aspect of the NPT in the slightest. The only controversy is the United States accuses the Iranians of pursuing nuclear weapons but provides not an iota of proof to base it on. The United States can hardly be said to be a dispassionate and neutral observer when it comes to Iran so their accusations without any proof are one step left of completely useless.

Fine, dont trust them that's your right. But it's also Iran's right to enrich uranium and unless their is evidence proving they are breaching the NPT the IAEA and the UN have no right to stop them from enriching uranium.

Thanks for the information, Subz. I should probably also add that I don't exactly trust us either. (Us being the U.S.) I can't trust the news, i'm not sure which information sources I can trust now days...

I guess I fell victim of propaganda, as it was conceivable to me that there could very well be a significant event today. Granted, today isn't over, and it could be that today leads to something else.

I think that if they can be properly monitored where we can be sure they aren't making nukes, they most certainly should be able to use it for power plants. But if the temptation is there... I personally would rather no one have nukes


And now we have North Korea acting out again... allegedly.

How can this be considered anything other than an act of aggression? What the hey? Are they testing the waters?

I guess we'll have to wait on further developments to be divulged.

Hence nuclear armageddon because Israel was invaded. But thats OK isnt it.


Of course its okay. Israel is special and never has to live up to the standrad enforced on other countries in the region. Its yet another double standard that has become accepted as part of the American psyche.

Israel continues to be the greatest threat to to United States security, yet no one with an IQ under 150 seems to recognize that. A threat does not have to come in the shape of someone who is considered your enemy. A threat to your personal well being can be someone very close to you. Israel is like that little brother who just doesn't know when to STFU and ends up getting everyone so mad at you that they start taking it out on you and trashing your reputation and property. The United States government's refusal to treat Israel the way it deserves has put America at risk IMO, and this has to stop. Israel should stop getting foreign aid and a free ride from the military suppliers. Its time for Israel to stand on its own. Its time for our government to worry about the security of its citizens rather than the citizens in Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan or any other country they have imperialistic goals toward. Where is the taxpayer outrage in all of this? Oh yes, buying garbage like semperfortis' post about how swell the economy is doing!

it seems there is some speculation that it might be to do with a legal dispute with the company gsp though the timing is certainly very suspicious and the action is probably not legal if it is to do with a dispute. the rig was being taken outside of iranian waters when it was siezed. as you said... we'll have to wait and see what happens

Speaking of Iran.. CNN.com reports the following 'News Alert' -

Reuters: Iran has handed its reply to a six-nation nuclear package to foreign envoys in Tehran, Iranian TV reports.




I wonder if it rhymes with 'puck new'..?

I agree, its an unprovoked attack. An act of war? no? (with Romania)

What on earth would be there reasoning behind it? Fireing at an oil rig and then taking it over.

Well, this is it, folks, Iran said "No" and nobody's going to die today.

unless something actually does happen, and then the standard procedure is in order.

Running, panic, screaming, riots in the streets, you know.

At this point this is only confirmed by a company spokesman. Has it been confirmed by Iran? I know that some countries have a habit of blaming a country for attacks to instigate military action.

Maybe this is going to be used as an excuse to invade Iran, or at least add a military presence inside their borders.
