iranian scientist

This is really starting to piss me off.

The ONLY reason that most of you care about what’s going on in Norway is because it’s a shiny new tragedy. It’s the same way with Libya. And New Zealand. And Japan. Most of you forgot about those once they stopped being new and horrifying.

What about the dozens that died when a bullet train derailed in china?

What about the violent clashes that erupted in Cairo, Egypt?

What about the Iranian nuclear scientist that was shot dead in Tehran?

What about the Syrian protestors that were killed on Friday during a demonstration in Homs?

What about the deadly violence flaring up in Pakistan’s Karachi?

Well? What about all of those? None of you even seem to realize things like this have happened?

So I will say this:
May Amy, the Norwegian victims, and all the other people who have lost their lives recently rest in peace.

BREAKING: Donald Trump hints at assassination of Hillary Clinton by gun rights supporters, Clinton campaign immediately responds to Trump's verbal diarrhea
Republican presidential nominee says ‘second amendment people’ could stop Democrat choosing undesirable supreme court justices if she is elected
By David Smith

Donald Trump has hinted at the assassination of Hillary Clinton by supporters of gun rights.

The Republican nominee was speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, about the next president’s power to appoint supreme court justices. “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” he said, adding: “Although the second amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.”

The second amendment to the constitution protects the right of Americans to bear arms. Trump has accused his Democratic rival of wanting to abolish it, a charge that she denies.

“This is simple – what Trump is saying is dangerous,” said Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook. “A person seeking to be the president of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”

Jason Miller, a communications adviser for the Trump campaign, attempted to explain the candidate’s comments. “It’s called the power of unification,” he said. “Second amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”

The supreme court has become a central election issue since the death earlier this year of Justice Antonin Scalia, a conservative who has not yet been replaced. Trump claims that liberal judges could threaten the second amendment.

He told supporters on Tuesday: “I guess there’s a scenario in which this president could pick five supreme court justices, and if you pick two that are left, left, left, it’s going to be a disaster for our country.”

He also told the rally that Clinton is “dangerous” and could destroy the country from within because of her immigration policies.

Trump was introduced by Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor, who brought up the case of Shahram Amiri, an Iranian nuclear scientist executed for spying for the US. Clinton received emails mentioning him on her controversial personal server when she was secretary of state.

Giuliani said: “Remember Hillary told us there was no top secret information on her emails? Remember she told us that. Well, she lied! And I don’t know the connection between that and the death of Mr Amiri, but what I do know is it put a lot more attention on him when they found those emails. It certainly put him at great risk, even if they didn’t find them, and it shows you that when the director of the FBI said she was extremely careless, he was being kind.”

But Giuliani repeatedly waved away chants of “Lock her up!” from the crowd.

Iran confirmed that it executed scientist who gave the US information about nuclear program

An Iranian nuclear scientist, Shahram Amiri, who provided the United States with intelligence about his home country’s controversial nuclear program has been executed in Iran. According to U.S. officials, Amiri willingly agreed to provide the CIA with intel about Iran’s nuclear capabilities in exchange for a huge sum.

Iran Building Fake Aircraft Carrier; US Media Freak Out

Iran, U.S. officials say, is currently at work building a nonworking replica of an American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. From the sounds of it, the American intelligence community hasn’t quite figured out why Iran is going through the trouble to do that, but the working theory appears to be: so they can blow it in a propaganda stunt. Or, as the New York Times gloriously put it this morning, “presumably for some mysteriously bellicose purposes”

ah yes, those dastardly iranians don’t do anything that isn’t for “mysteriously bellicose purposes”. it’s too bad we westerners can’t understand their strange oriental minds! looks like we’ll have to call a security council meeting over this act of war, so much more heinously aggressive than america’s killings of iranian civilian nuclear scientists.

so what’s it actually for?

A replica of a U.S. aircraft carrier spotted near the coast of Iran is nothing more sinister than a movie set, Iranian media said on Sunday.

Iranian newspapers said it was “part of the decor” of a movie being made by Iranian director Nader Talebzadeh on the 1988 shooting down of an Iran Air civilian plane by the USS Vincennes. The United States says the downing of the plane, which killed all 290 passengers and crew, was an accident.

“The issue has turned into a good excuse for another wave of hype against Iran,” said the Alef news website which carries views close to the official line in Iran.

“Without any proof or real basis, Western media have jumped again to paint a more negative picture of Iran.”

A spokesman for the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet in Bahrain acknowledged that the replica was “more akin to a Hollywood set than a warship.”

mysteriously bellicose indeed
