    Damn these Iranians eh? Even the al-Qaeda lot are annoyed with them. For what? Erm spreading the lie that Israel was behind 9/11 and not al-Qaeda! I’m actually surprised this didn’t happen earlier.

    I mean sooner or later someone was going to have to square up the fact that you had a bunch of nutters going around saying 9/11 was a conspiracy, and another bunch of nutters going around saying that 9/11 was their show of force against America’s military might. Can Osama Bin Laden and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad get into the boxing ring please?

      Most excellent!

      So an unverifiable audio tape equates to the AQ ‘Word on the Street’????

      Carry on…..

      You can ‘reconcile those narratives’, as they say, by assuming the secret Zionist masters are double-secretly working for al Qaeda. For example, they could be prolonging the occupation of the West bank as a means of ensuring al qaeda is favoured over less vigorous groups.

      Or perhaps both groups are pawns of the Turks. Noone ever suspects them - isn’t that suspicious?

      soru, you may have just hit the jackpot there! Time to sell out and move up the ladder!

      What nonsense.

      Everyone knows it was the Prince of Arabia who put 17 of his worst criminals onto those planes against their will, and then the CIA used a remote control-like device to guide them towards the twin towers

      America got its war, the Prince of Arabia got to keep his money

      This is a wicked post —

      oh did you guys notice the US trying to tell the Indian Government about what conversations they should be having with “M A DINNER JACKET ie Ahmadinejad ” — both the comments from the US and the retaliatory response from India (especially the Marxists) was quite funny.

      Anyway, pickled politics as usual brightened my day

      one more thing — just because Obama lost big in PA you guys stopped talking about the US elections — sorry had to make that dig

      as a zionist neo-con lizard from outer space, i’m extremely disappointed that the iranians should think we’d employ that bunch of foaming troglodytes. i mean, really! besides, everyone knows ahmedinejad is actually a secret z.nc.l.f.o.s. himself. that’s why he has that rather rubbish beard, to hide the zip in his human skin-suit. bah.

      Yeah, I was waiting for PA to brighten things up, am going to start on the US elections again soon!

      I am becoming obsessed with the US elections - it is becoming an exercise in understanding human stupidity. I really can’t believe “pundits” were hammering Obama for ordering orange juice instead of coffee. Or being elitist - because the most important qualification for becoming a President is drinking beer, bowling and shooting animals.

      And then you have Clinton, who I once admired, but now think she is worse than the Republicans. The Bosnia flap was appalling: she repeated that lie 4 times. And McCain has no clue about Shiahs and Sunnis.

      I guess you really have to be a genius in America to understand who is the best candidate.

      it is becoming an exercise in understanding human stupidity

      Maybe so.
      But the best President in my lifetime - no, *not* Carter, but Reagan - was also “stupid”.
      But he knew - in broad terms - what he wanted to get done.

      I don’t care if the candidates are “stupid” or “brilliant” - indeed the latter scares me.

      The President - like a CEO - needs (oh dear, I’m about to say it) the “vision thing”.
      But he or she should know his/her limitations sufficiently as to leave the details to others, while having the right personal skills.

      (In Brown of course we have the opposite, but that’s another story…)

      On these criteria I would reject Hillary at least…

      where are david palmer and jed bartlett when you need them?
