I can watch video's on YT and the commercials at the beginning of this video, but I can't watch this video for some reason.
Try switching browsers or updating your flash. Flash has been picky for me too, on other sites, but it's playing fine for me here.

The clip you posted is taken from this clip. Let me guess, you found the clip on Liveleak? You see, now you are raising my suspicions. I respect what you are doing but you have shown a very very short clip and implied it was something else.
This raises questions over the validity of all your other info if you are so quick to use short clips of one video and try to exclaim they are something they are not. You realise this is exactly what the MSM do?
Surely you don't want to tarnish your reputation, or the TRUTH.
I just want you to admit you have made a mistake. That way we can wade through the BS back to the truth.edit on 22-11-2011 by LightAssassin because: (no reason given)

I like most of what you put in your videos (you won't see most of this stuff in the MSM), however I think your analysis of Iran is a bit off. The 'religious fanaticism' thing is a ruse; their leaders aren't actually fanatical - at least in the sense that their people are. Ahmadinejad won't use a nuke (if he ever gets one) for the same reason that Bin Laden never strapped a bomb to his chest and blew himself up in a crowded market.
The whole theocracy/religious fanaticism thing serves two important purposes for Iran:
1) Scares outsiders into thinking that 'they're just crazy enough that they might do it'
2) Serves as a simple form of population control (we have consumerism, they have extremism)
Point is, an easy way to get a bunch of people to do what you want is by promising them 'eternal life', or alternatively, 'eternal damnation' (I'm not anti-religious, just anti-organized religion). The Iranian higher-ups know that using a nuke against Israel would come with the rather inconvenient consequence of their entire country being turned into a smoking crater. This poses a problem for them, considering they want to stay in power.
Israel is their Al-Qaeda, their 'boogeyman.'
