Guess Iran needs to do better using proxy forces, otherwise it just comes back to bite them in the arse if caught.

Iran's past record of using proxy forces against U.S. interests won't help make them look innocent, more of a suspect. Creepy isn't it?

Oh I see what you're saying. Yeah I agree, but somethings tells me that this impending war will be welcomed by all...as strange as that sounds. Either way, I think Iran realise that the US govt will push for this conflict to go ahead, so they would have to welcome it one way or another.

I guess what makes this different than all of the rest of th threats is the language used. "Gift."

I guess right before 9-11-01 the chatter used celebratory language, like "wedding". " Is the wedding tomorrow?"

I had no idea about this chatter. Does any one have any more info?

Right now the only media outlet reporting this seems to be Fox News. That makes me a bit suspicious. I'm sure there will be information forthcoming in the next few hours...if there is any substance to this at all.

No matter what or who is actually behind it, IF either a radiological device or a 'terrorist nuke' goes off in any U.S. city on the anniversary of 9/11 be assured that Iran will pay the ULTIMATE price for it.

For the sake of many millions of souls, we should hope and perhaps even pray that this is just another empty radical Islamist threat.

But wouldn't the US need cold, hard evidence to prove that iran was the culprit before shooting off at them? If a 'terrorist nuke' is detonated on US soil, of course it seems obvious to point fingers at iran as they are the ones who are accelerating towards building nuclear devices, but its also easy enough to sell those nuclear devices to other countries that dislike America.

i hope you understand what im trying to say.

I dunno, did we have cold, hard evidence that there were WMD's or terrorists in Iraq??

If the PTB want a war, they'll find a way to have one.

For this exact reason I believe that the possibility is high that this may not be another false alarm, lots of chatter on the news about this story.

If you mean what I said, you may want to read it again... for a very long time now this administration has consistently pointed fingers at Iran, blaming them for supporting terrorism in Iraq and other parts of the middle east. I was simply stating the obvious here, if we are attacked Iran is already in the cross-hairs, why would this administration go after anyone else?

Bahahahaha. Oh come on, wake up to yourself. Saddam a reason to storm Iraq? man its not surprising they consistently fool the greater populace with people like you leading the way. if you knew anything, you would know what saddam was... a threat to the US? Give me a damn break. Weapons of mass destruction? Oh hand on, the UN said there were none on inspection..so umm. What else is there? harboring terrorists...you're damn right they're harboring terrorist..and you know when they started harboring them? Right after Bush landed in town. There was NO "cause for war" regarding Iraq. Unless we are referring to the spiel that was played out to convince you that there was.

Yes Libra, the world has gone mad. So it is written so it shall be. The suicide boats will be ready for launching if this madness comes to fruition.
