Arabs want US to attack Iran

"Whistle-blowing website Wikileaks begun releasing extracts from secret messages sent by US embassies which give an insight into current global concerns.

They include reports of some Arab leaders - including Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah - urging the US to attack Iran and end its nuclear weapons programme."

Not surprising. The Arabian Peninsula is far more in danger from an Iranian nuclear bomb than the US.

I'm no fan of Iran, but attacking them will cause havoc in the entire Middle East. Evidently some people still haven't learnt a lesson from the smouldering ruins of Iraq. That is a bad idea.

Iran has been causing trouble in the region, yet they expect Iran itself to remain untouchable. ← For that reason, it would be amusing if Iran got hit.

Because: the Shia filth in the area, such as the intruders in Iraq, are of the belief that Shiism is strong and on the rise, due to their smart moves and calculated decisions.

Some of them even think they played Uncle Sam like a flute, and then the U.S. handed them a Shia state.

So maybe if their main country Iran got smoked, they could change their perspective.

It would not be "amusing" if Iran got hit. Real people would be killed and maimed.

And all because of the folly of the obnoxious Khomeini and his power-hungry followers.

The most interesting leak was the fact that Gadhafi travels with a "voluptuous blonde" Ukrainian nurse.

What is Wikileaks purpose, to kill us with boredom?

Those "power-hungry" followers are a dwindling minority.

No one need be harmed with a hit like this:

Iran Confirms Stuxnet Worm Halted Centrifuges

"Iran's president has confirmed for the first time that a computer worm affected centrifuges in the country's uranium enrichment program.

Iran has previously denied the Stuxnet worm, which experts say is calibrated to destroy centrifuges, had caused any damage, saying they uncovered it before it could have any effect.

But President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said it "managed to create problems for a limited number of our centrifuges." Speaking to a press conference Monday, he said the problems were resolved.

Earlier in November, U.N. inspectors found Iran's enrichment program temporarily shut down, according to a recent report by the U.N. nuclear watchdog. The extent and cause of the shutdown were not known, but speculation fell on Stuxnet. "

This should be renamed the Ilan Ramon computer worm.

I don't know what role the U.S. played in all this, but I would proudly take credit if credit were due.

"Cables from embassies in the region also suggested that the Saudi king perceives the Iraqi government under Maliki as an Iranian proxy. The United States has been trying to foster stronger relations between Iraq and its Arab neighbors to counter Iranian influence.

In a meeting with John O. Brennan, the White House counterterrorism adviser, last March, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia called Maliki an "Iranian agent," a cable said."

[cox] "It would not be "amusing" if Iran got hit. Real people would be killed and maimed."

I note that this didn't stop American retards from cheering as American bombs killed and maimed Iraqis.

[cox] "And all because of the folly of the obnoxious Khomeini and his power-hungry followers."

That's like blaming Pearl Harbour on the Americans. You people are warped. Khomenei is dead btw, if you haven't noticed yet.

"That's like blaming Pearl Harbour on the Americans. "

No, it's like blaming Horoshima on the Japanese imperialst party, which I do.

So far as there is a parallel to Pearl Harbor in this dispute, it would be the US Embassy hostage-taking or the destruction of the Marine barracks in Beirut.
