Good News: Iran to Launch Satellite

Of course this is good news. Iran plans to launch its very own satellite into orbit next year. This means they will have something to really brag about to all their neighbors, something to make them look like real hotshots, a real feather in their rag. What do they intend to do with their shiny new satellite? Beats me - but I'm pretty sure it's not going to be something stupid that will get it taken out. Are they really going to go through all the expense and effort to create their fledgling space program - the envy of the entire Mideast, surely, just to turn around and see American B-1's dropping 2000 lb. bombs on their precious facilities. In other words, the more fancy technology Iran develops, the more moderate and non-confrontational their actions (if not their words) will be. Can we just forget about those bozos already?

But if we don't have Iran to fear who will we be afraid of? Our government? How could our politicians ever allow such a terrible thing to happen.

Oh, I dont know if I'd call them bozos. If Iran could pull off a first strike nuclear destruction of Israel, they'd do it (at least Ahmadinutjob would), but they cant.

Its hard to really guage what level of advancement their nuclear program is at. I wonder if Russia, China slip them materials underhandedly to act as a annoyance to us or whatnot. Our long term competition on this planet isn't Iran (and wouldn't be for 200 years or more, even if that country was run well), but is China, Russia, and India. All three have nukes, and two of them could definitely wipe us off the map (MAD). Notice how we dont really mess with them, only complain to the UN?

That's a bit hasty -- surely we should only forget about half of them.

I think I mean more half-forget about them. I just don't expect them to do anything stupid - they may be real annoying to us in Iraq, but we got ourselves in that mess.

Ahmablahblahblah is a clown, and everyone including the mullahs know it.

Annoying us in Iraq? These assholes are killing Americans with IED's and sending people in to help attack US forces. They don't have to you know.

You know what though, anonymous, Iran gets all those weapsons they pass on to troublemakers in Iraq from their great patron, China. Iran has a bilateral trade deal with China whereby Iran sells China oil and they get weapons in return. (If Iran ever does develop a nuke, it will be because China sold them the technology). The fact is, its not really in Iran's interest to make mischief for the U.S. in Iraq, but it is China's interests. They want the U.S. out of the Persian Gulf area, so that they can make similar bilateral deals with the other OPEC countries there, and completely bypass the U.S. controlled world oil futures trading system altogether. This would allow them to get a much bigger share of the world's stagnating oil supply, which they desperately need.

All of which confirms what the earlier anonymous at this thread stated.

We never hear this important angle to the Iraq/Iran story in the news, however. Because then the masses in this country, to the extent that they're even paying any attention, might start asking why it is that we're transferring a quarter of a trillion dollars each year through our trade deficits to a country trying to undermine our position in Iraq. The PTB that own the corporate news media wouldn't want that, as they are heavily invested in China, both in their economy and also in the idea that China is the rightful heir to U.S. economic leadership in the world.
