To add you've only been registered since February 2010.


Has it really gotten that bad over the past 6 months?

[edit on 7-8-2010 by Big Raging Loner]


This is the kinda argument a schoolchild would use.

I have been using this site for a very long time. Its probably been in decline for the last twelve months.


I'm using a childish argument? I think you are somewhat of a hypocrite. My experience is children whine and stamp their feet about problems without taking any action to solve them.

How have you contributed to this site to improve the content? The fact that you registered in February of this year is valid in devaluing your previous comments. Personally I think this site like any other you have to work to find the information you regard as useful. Like I said earlier you don't have to read it.

This is fearmongering at its peak.

An exaggeration at it's peak.

ATS should not permit this crap.

The thread has lots of flags and stars so it seems to be quite popular. I don't think the idea of consolidating information of lots of threads into one could be considered crap. The fact that there are lots of threads in the subject suggests it is a hot topic which people wish to discuss. Like i said earlier message a Mod and register your distaste for the site, your excuse was they'll see it on here? Very lazy...

I have noticed that many of you believe this is some sort of fear mongering thread since there is no current war.

The purpose of this thread is to collect all of the information pertaining to Iran and the other countries involved in any possible future conflict. This makes it easier for people to see where we are in this situation and where we are heading. It is not to provoke a war, to ask for a war or to hope for a war, but let’s not live in fantasy land, we all know the chances of a strike on Iran are terribly high and each month things get worse.

I understand how you interpret this as fear mongering but trust me it's not, but it is always better to be prepared and have information easily readable if/when such an event occurs or to monitor this developing situation to see if track the pace of these threats and actions, hopefully being able to discover if an attack is going to happen beforehand.

Yeah I don’t think your fear mongering I understand what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. My problem with this thread is that there is not going to be a war in Iran anytime soon. It seems like a really bad idea to start a thread about a war, attack, invasion, conflict or whatever u want to call it that hasn’t even happened yet and in all probability won’t happen.

Technically true, but also technically true that there was never a war in Iraq.

I'd also argue that there is indeed a war going on with Iran...a war for our minds and support...a media and propaganda war.

If you look at it like that, it's been going on for a while now...most recently (not going back to our overthrow of their government in the 50s was it?) intensely since the late 90s and in about a 2-3 year ebbing and flowing cycle, last seen to this level in 2007.



Really lets give peace a chance?

Thanks.

Yep. Can't argue with peace.

But we may well be giving peace a chance here in some small way by bringing issues about this to light.

The Up to the Minute Iranian Peace Thread might have been a pretty cool name too.

Peace

That map you posted with all the US flags around Iran is highly misleading. I'm not surprised though, as you seem to post a lot of very misleading information.

By looking at that map you would think we had armies or bases at each of those locations, but that isn't the case. For instance, we have no armies or bases in Pakistan.


We don't have military in Pakistan? Beeeeeeeeeeeeep. Try again.

War funding OKd after debate detour

U.S. Says Pakistan Ties Have Strengthened

U.S. Army joins rescue, aid efforts in flood-stricken Pakistan

The flag there remains.

And stop personally attacking me over and over. Bad habit, Dymo. Wasn't it you who assumed I wasn't American?


And you're always wrong too. Can't ever really give examples. Just like here, but hey at least this was a better attempt on your part.

Perhaps he means that none of the forces in those areas are of the type or in a position to invade Iran. Of course when you talk about a war with Iran I assume you mean an airstrike. As it would require a very large and obvious build up of air and ground forces in the region to conduct anything more than an air strike. So the flags while pretty for the most part those forces are irrelevant to any possible conflict with Iran.

It was a map showing how surrounded Iran is. Just a simple persepctive, and in addition, it's all related in this chess game.

There are troops in Pakistan. I'm sure he was just trying to get the facts straight.


I just wish the map showed where our ships were in the water as well. I believe we still have some very near the Strait of Hormuz and in the gulf. But I'm not certain, as I've lost track of that.

well with the fires in russia at the moment it at least seems like IF there is a war they will play no direct role in it but the russians have alwase been good at doing things secretly or indirectly and ill look for the thread that mentions it but isnt there suposed to be a new moon soon that would help a strike?also obama gave them tell september to stop there program and from other threads on the issue it was gleaned that the bushwar plant will have the fuel at the plant in mid september so id have to say it will happen before september is over

The consensus among them was that Iran is one to three years away from the being able to create a nuclear weapon.

Is it just me or has Iran always been 'one to three years' away from a nuke?

To add the old Truman is knocking around the neighbourhood these days.

www.debka.com...

To meet increasingly defiant Iranian threats to US regional military forces, Washington has detached the USS Truman carrier from support duty for Afghanistan in the Arabian Sea and reassigned it to Dubai opposite the Gulf of Oman and the Straits of Hormuz with thousands of marines aboard.

It's been 2-3 years away for about 15 or more years now. Then again, they could argue that they're slowing Iran down
which I guess technically, they are.

The surest way to have a war in Iran is to convince the lame brain psychotic politicians the people will support one, so unless you really just hate people and love death and violence the threads idea is not just a false but a dangerous one.

Couldn't some of you people get a puppy or something.

In three years not one next month next week prediction for war in Iran has happened.

Bah. You all probably think Putin's hot. Weirdos.

'Israel set to hit Iran's N-sites within a year'


Israel may launch a unilateral attack on Iranian nuclear facilities within a year if the Obama administration fails to assure Tel Aviv that it is serious about foiling Tehran's atomic ambitions, a media report said.


That story just broke from the Times of India. Sorry I don't have any pics of Netanyahu in drag for ya.
