Reader comment on item: Decision Time on Iran

Submitted by trans-parere (Canada), Nov 4, 2006 at 04:21

I don't think it's long range thermonuclear devices that are feared when speaking about states like N. Korea or Iran but, rather the technology being downsized to shorter ranged dirty bombs. Any one launching a long range missile immediately identifies themselves and thus leaves themselves open to an equal response and looses the deniability of their actions.

Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, these terrorist groups are about power and influence. They don't fight from the top down but, recruit sheeple, men of little education but a lot of indoctrination to strap on the bombs and fire the RPG's and spray machine gun fire. The Iranian Ayatollah has no intention of being vaporized by some retaliatory nuke strike. He loves money. Great big huge bags of it. Which is why he hasn't shared any with his (beloved) people.

Islamic brotherhood is a device to attract the needy to self immolation in the name of Allah. Islamic states are full of these sheeple, unemployment is very high, and every Islamic leader exports them to some Islamic cause ASAP. Peace with in the regime is paramount. Give the radicals a place and cause to vent upon. The heat in the Middle East can be turned up at will and receive world response. Africa and it's oil and other resource wealth is the real target for Islamification and rule.

There are twenty odd Islamic driven wars going on right now, and while Iraq is high on the list because of American and British involvement the battles in Africa are of equal importance in the long run.

The authoritarian rule of Islam and the Dictatorial governing of the Islamic States need terrorism to maintain their power structures as much as terrorist need them for recruits, money and arms. Terrorism has evolved to guerrilla warfare and the west is running from one bush fire to the next. . Iran and the Arab oil States are sitting back taking in the money from the west for oil and giving it to the al-Qaedas. And the Americans have their head bobbing on a stick looking for brush fires and spending more on oil each year.

You can't slap the stupid out of radical Islam hoping for a reformation while supporting the regimes that need to export their radicals in order to keep their regimes while not modifying your own economy towards less dependence on foreign oil requiring more and more oil to maintain the status quo which sends more money to the islamist who support the terrorist who .............
