To think that WWIII would pit the US against Russia - who ever could have foreseen that?

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) does not speak for "Islamic States". It is a DC-based neocon zionist-terrorist organization.

During the last century they and they-alike have destroyed Russia. Now, it is America in their cross-hear for a destruction. They wage a total war against the USA.

With total control the mass media, Hollywood, and pornography business they already destroyed the cultural and moral fabric of the American society. They have already ruined the US economy. Involving the USA in endless international wars and the phony war on terror here in the USA, these neocon zionist-terrorists are well no their way to ruin of whatever still left of the US Constitution and democracy.

It is the time for America to defend itself from these neocon zionist-terrorist enemies!

Debka is reporting some crazy action going on in Iran....

"Two mysterious incidents are reported by DEBKAfile in the run-up to the fueling up of Iran's first nuclear reactor Saturday, Aug. 21.Tuesday, Aug. 17, an Iranian F4 Phantom fighter jet was claimed by Tehran to have crashed 6 kilometers north of the Bushehr nuclear reactor in southern Iran. DEBKAfile's military sources report it was shot down by Russian-made TOR-M1 air-missile defense batteries guarding the reactor."

"On Aug. 1, three unidentified UAVs slammed into the reactor buildings, scaring the townspeople who were sure the plant was under American or Israeli attack.

After the heads of government in Tehran put their heads together to try and identify the drones, without success, the defense ministry emerged with a communiqué reporting that a single drone had crashed on the nuclear reactor's dome, but insisted it was launched by Iran's Revolutionary Guards to test the alertness of the air defense personnel guarding it and the effectiveness of its anti-air radar system."


Whether any of it is true or not I have no idea.

"a communiqué reporting that a single drone had crashed on the nuclear reactor's dome, but insisted it was launched by Iran's Revolutionary Guards to test the alertness of the air defense personnel guarding it and the effectiveness of its anti-air radar system.""

So, was this test classified as a success, or a failure?  I'm still scratching my head over that one.

"Stop paying attention to zionist lies."

Very well.  Will you provide me with the truth then?

It was a retorical reply.  A retoric.......  Oh. never mind.

If the Saudis are worried about the reactor, let them bomb it.

Yeah, but the Saudis are not the lean mean fighting machine that overthrew the Hashemite dynasty with a vanguard of Jihad fanatics.  The Persians are a different animal altogether. In this case the House of Saud are a bunch of Fraidy Cats.  I wonder if Israel is waiting for a public request from them and the Gulf States to take down the Persians.  Wouldn't that be ironic?

Not sure one editorial by a non-official in a Saudi paper can be construed as "Gulf States endorsing military action."

More from the hoist-with-your-own-petard files: If we hadn't destroyed Iraq, they would've kept the balance with Iran (at least more than now). Mind you, if Iran were Sunni instead of Shia, all oil would be cut off for any contemplation of war with their Islamic brothers.

As for Saudi gumption, they can't seem to make much use of the advanced weaponry except for briefly bombing defenseless Yemen.

I don't have a TV, but when I travel, if the hotel room has a TV, I turn it on.  ... So there's Anderson-360 going Skud-Stud over "Iranian missiles that can travel 6,000 miles and hit Paris and London."  Go to 11:30 PM commercial break.  Come back.  "That's 6,000 kilometers.  That was a mistake.  Not 6,000 miles.  They can hit Israel."
