Title basically sums up the post. 1k for dead soldiers and 6k for US military vehicles. Can we say an act of war? And were letting these people invest and research heavily into nuclear power?

I did not come up with the title. I only copied and pasted the title the website gave the article.

So, according to the article, it's just some random company in Iran funding them and yet they pin it off as the entire country..?

The US dropped two nuclear bombs during WWII and we're letting these people invest and research heavily into nuclear power/weapons?

They're being paid by private Iranian companies you fucking tit, not the Iranian government. Not "Iran."

The Sunday Times said its investigation had found that at least five Kabul-based Iranian companies were secretly passing funds to the Taliban.


Derp derp. Sloppy and misleading thread title is sloppy and misleading.

MSNBC is almost as bad as FOX News now. Not only is the article sensationalized but throughout the story they mistake the "company" offering the rewards with the entire country of Iran. Don't get me wrong, I think Iran is a shit hole like anyone else but I at least expect professional news sources to report accurately. These types of news articles only serve to kindle the fire of Muslim hatred in America.

The US dropped two atomic bombs, yet no one says we should stop them from researching nuclear power/weapons. Iran is researching nuclear power, but they're mostly muslims, therefore they should be stopped from researching nuclear power. See my point? Hopefully.

Which is exactly what Obama wants. He needs more support for the war/occupation of the middle east, so he'll do anything/pull whatever strings he must to add fuel to the fire that is islam hatred here in the states.

Just look at the whole Mosque ordeal.

Ah, gotcha. I'll break this down for ya. This is just how I see it.
First, since we already know how to make atomic/nuclear bombs, what good is stopping us from learning how?
The whole idea of stopping Iran isn't because they're muslim. That's the last reason, as a matter of fact. The reason they need to be stopped is because they could easily trigger world war three if they were to attack Israel. Likewise, Israel would trigger it if they attack Iran.
I do see what you were getting at, though.

So, it was either destroying two cities or losing over a million American soldiers to a land invasion of Japan, I think dropping the bombs was justified, even from a Marxist view point such as yourself. Learn your history kid.


As for this Iran thing, why doesn't someone teach them a lesson, it's like they are a kid with a magnifying glass burning ants. I wonder how long it's gona take till mama comes and grabs Iran by the ear and spanks his ass till it's beaming red.

In laymans terms, someone needs to kill the shit out of Iran and make them know that they cannot act like they are the reincarnation of Persia.

Because it's not Iran as a country or state doing it, it's a few people in Kabul, you lump of plankton. By that logic, the US should declare war on Saudi Arabia, seeing as Osama is Saudi Arabian, and how 9/11 was mainly perpetrated by Saudi Arabians.

For the good of mankind, I hope you never breed.

What's with the 'they can't have nukes'. Israel's had them since the 70's, it would balance the region out.
And nuclear power means less emissions, which we've being trying to pressure the LEDC's into anyway.

Your posts give me a headache. Iran can't act like they're the reincarnation of Persia, the US should kill the shit out of them to show them they can't do whatever the hell they want! I see no contradiction right there. And I learnt 'my history' from fairly unbiased sources (ie. not from American history books where the dropping of two nuclear bombs seems to be praised).

The US, UK, France, Russia, all have significant numbers of nuclear weapons, and are sitting high and saying 'lol nah, you can't have any of those, silly little country' to everyone else who has interest in building their own pile. I don't Iran to have nuclear weapons, but there's obvious hypocrisy.

The interesting thing here will be how the Iranian government deals with these companies. They know these companies exist and they know their activity in conjunction with terrorists. How, if the government denounces this act, then it puts iran (a little bit more) in our favour. If they say 'yeah, we knew, so what?' and don't do any public act to denounce them, then i'd class it as supporting a terrorist faction, which as the UN and NATO as well as the US and UK independantly class as an act of war.

The REAL interesting things come if the iranians denounce it, but let it carry on from investigation from undercover NATO/UN detectives on the subject.

Personally, i think this is going to be my first posting...

Peace talks with Japan started 3 days before those bombs were dropped and neither city was of any strategic importance. They were dropped as part of a live test of 2 different bomb designs

You might have a tough time figuring out how much to pay: when villages get airstriked it can be difficult to tell which charred corpses are fighters and which are civillians.

You mean slow, gradual disarmament which still allows said countries to have their own nuclear weapons? Precisely the fact that they're hesitant to significantly reduce their weapons.

What about the millions of innocent civilians? Thats the most disgusting justification I've ever heard in my life. All life is important no matter what.
