    Obama records video for Iranians

    by Sunny on 20th March, 2009 at 5:48 am    

    According to the Guardian, Obama has taped a message directly for the people of Iran.

    It’s a new era people! Get used to it. And before you ask, it will feature Farsi subtitles.

      The Children of Adam are limbs to each other? Fuck…He didn’t say “War on terr-r” once..

      I can’t see the video at work, will watch it later. The facists in the office ban so many excellent websites, youtube (and content from it), facebook, hotmail etc.

      I don’t beleive the public image of US-Iranian relations anymore, they’re not what they seem. Did anyone see the Iran and the West series. Have you seen the undercover work between the US and Iran to bring down the Taliban post 911?

      Also In a recent senate hearing Senator Jim Webb or Virginia claimed that US supplies may be going through Iran. There is also talk of NATO looking for alternative routes and Iran has been mentioned. Iran has denied supplying NATO and refused to help NATO publically anyway.

      Also in the past there is the open secret of Israeli companies having helped smuggle F-14 parts to Iran in the 80’s.

      I think there is more to the relationship that meets the eye.

      Clever how they did this the same time he was on Leno…

    5. Leon — on 20th March, 2009 at 10:58 am  

      And also today/now is the Persian new year…clever dude that Obama…

    6. Leon — on 20th March, 2009 at 11:00 am  

      …And, on the 6th anniversary of the Iraq invasion too. Very shrewd.

      Obama badly needs to change the media narrative from the AIG bonus fiasco. This might make the trick. He is a joy to watch.

      His Leno appearance contains an off the cuff joke at the expense of disabled people:

      That’s right: cozy up to Iran with greetings for a pre-Islamic holiday that Tehran has been trying unsuccessfully to get rid of.

      “Obama badly needs to change the media narrative from the AIG bonus fiasco”

      I would not like to be Tim Geithner when Obama asks him, ‘So Tim, these bonuses, what were you thinking?’

      better than waiting for eid!


      “mr obama is that a man resting a gun on your soldier… oh look cool red laser dot probing my chest.”

    12. tanvir — on 20th March, 2009 at 11:12 pm  

      Its amzing how two people(Bush&Obama) can in effect say the same thing, using completely opposite-seeming words!
