"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Friday Sermon from Iran and DeMediacratic Nation's 1000 post

Obviously, the big news of the day is the fact that this is this blogs 1,000th post which to me earns a big healthy slap on my back in that I am well ahead of any simians testing the "Infinite Monkey Theorem."

IRNA reveals today that, Substitute Friday prayers leader of Tehran Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani said:

sanctions will be more harmful to the region and the world than Iran.
Bluster away like Saddam and hope everyone believes you - time is short....

And in reference to the Israel and Hezbollah match he said:
"They intended to remove Hizbollah and Lebanon in two to three days but received a heavy blow by the resistance forces."
I don't know about you, but we sing hymns at church. Pretty slow day for a sermon I guess.

In an effort at making the world a better place, Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel said:
"the presence of a powerful, independent Iran is a contributing factor to regional stability and security."
Unfortunately, much of the violence in the region is not "independent" of Iran.

More good news in the "peacefully" nuclear world:
Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Larijani said that he is to confer with the European Union (EU) Foreign Policy chief Javier Solana within the next two days in one of the European states.
This is likely due to Iran's success to date in dealing with the "EU-3 or more" with regard to its research into "peaceful" nukes.

Luckily also since by the time they have completed their research and development, the Russian company, Atomstroieksport will likely have the nuclear reactor construction complete by then. According to a company spokesman:
"our company is fulfilling all existing accords in accordance with international agreements and contracts - it is our professional duty to take the construction of the first energy unit to the physical launch"
Back to the Mullahian efforts at making the world a better place (at least the region), Defense Minister Brigadier General Mostafa Najjar said:
"the army has successfully test fired a 2000-pound laser-guided bomb named 'Qassedak' (Herald) which serves to enhance national defense capability."
Considering that the U.S., among others use them offensively, we can rest easy knowing they will be used for defensive purposes only. (Note to self: I wonder if they consider the destruction of Israel "defensive?")

Finally, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki is concerned that:

"recent developments in Iraq point to the involvement of foreign forces in trying to create discord among the various Iraqi tribes and religious sects."

Damn! That's not cool!

Elsewhere, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said:
"the Islamic Republic of Iran has good intentions for Iraq and that Iranian policies favor good relations between Iraq and its neighboring countries."
"He reiterated his government's assurance that it will not let its territories be used as base for launching acts harmful to the interests of the Islamic Republic of Iran or endangering
its territorial integrity."
One of the things I find interesting is how often Iran says what it means somewhere and we still wonder what they mean.
