Gaffe-Tastic!

Joe Biden continues to demonstrate his gravitas: “When we took office, let me remind you, there was virtually no international pressure on Iran. We were the problem,” Biden said. “We were diplomatically isolated in the world, in the region, in Europe.” Biden continued, “We were neither fully respected by our friends nor feared by our […]

Too Stupid for Media Matters

In a sidebar headline at AOSHQ, I noticed a story from The Lid: BREAKING: MJ Rosenberg OUT At Media Matters Hmmm. Media Matters fires some guy. What’s this about? Rosenberg’s offense was describing pro-Israel Jews as “Israel Firsters.” Which is to say, Rosenberg thinks his fellow Jews are too pro-Israel. Let me see if I […]

War With Iran? Cue The Fear!

by Smitty Instapundit relays the Mead: In a recent interview with CBS news anchor Scott Pelley, Panetta said “the United States does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us”. He continued: “We will take whatever steps are necessary to stop them”. A nuclear Iran is “unacceptable”. When US […]

You See, Mr. Paul, History Does Not Support Scientific Experiments

There is no such thing as an “English” embassy anywhere in the world, and there hasn’t been one for several centuries. This blog doubles […]

Iran TV Blames Jihadist Bombing of Egyptian Church on ‘Zionists’

Because, of course, we know how those Zionists are: The fresh plot by terrorists to target churches is an organized Zionist scenario aimed at creating a rift between Muslims and Christians. A top Shi’ite cleric Hezbollah stooge in Lebanon parrots the propaganda of his masters in Tehran: “This terrorist act bears the fingerprints of Zionists who […]

Obligatory WikiLeaks Apocalypse Post

The biggest headline of the massive 250,000-document dump by Julian Assange’s organization is probably this: Prince Abdullah: Neo-Con Warhawk? Dude. When it turns out Saudi royalty is on the same page with Bill Kristol vis-a-vis the need to bomb Iran, you know Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s regime is in trouble.

The Ayatollah, Sharia and Sex

I’ve got no idea where Moonbattery found this video — in Arabic, from a German-language TV show, with English subtitles — but its subject is too horrific to describe: I’m guessing the two guys on this TV show are dissident Iranian exiles. They certainly don’t look like Islamophobic neocons . . .
