Iran head wants liberal teachers ousted

TEHRAN, Iran -Iran's hard-line president urged students Tuesday to push for a purge of liberal and secular university teachers, another sign of his determination to strengthen Islamic fundamentalism in the country.

If I say people should rise up and defend their right, everyone will call me a coward because I won't be doing it...
Iran is f***ed, more then ever... and I can't do anything about it so it's up to those who have the power to change something in Iran, plus no one wants another Iraq.

WTF MAN

Just Another Soldier is written by a soldierwhos name is Jason Christopher Hartley from the U.S.A. who was or is in Iraq, and he reports about how he can't shoot the kids in Iraq... kind of angers me. He also put up some pictures of kids that he said "Photos of the week of cute Iraqi kids who I want to shoot"

He complains "You Can’t Shoot Kids" in the title of his post...

Jason also writes: Something I can not reiterate often enough is how monumentally misbehaved Iraqi street kids are. But some of them are just so darn cute, you can’t help but want to squeeze their little faces– until they suffocate.

Some of the comments are also intresting to read, as they show how stupid some people sound like.

Canadians warned to be wary

Canada's Foreign Affairs Department told CBC News that it has been monitoring the situation, but has no immediate plans to get Canadians out.Ottawa issued a travel advisory, warning Canadians in the region to remain indoors and take precautions to stay safe."The Foreign Affairs Department is looking at making plans available for Canadians to be able to leave," CBC's Nahlah Ayed reported on Sunday."They have not announced any plans yet, but they are asking everybody in Lebanon to stay in touch and to get registered at the Canadian Embassy."

Israel and Lebonan

If you believe everything you watch on the news then I recommend you to watch this documentary about the conflicts between Israel and Palenstine in the region and it also talks about why American media sympathizes with Israel.

What is making me feel a little angry is why the Canadian government is not acting so fast to bring its citizens out of Lebonan and why is Stephen Harper our current Prime Minister is taking sides with Israel.

AhmadiNejad Campaign Iranian TV interview




Very rough translations from Persian to English:

Ahmadinijad: Is the real problem of our country peoples hairstyle?
Youth do what they feel like to do with their hair... it's not mine or your business. What concern me are the real problems that I and you really care about, Government has to be concerned about the economy and the security of the country and its people, government has to support its people.
People have different tastes and diverse culture with great traditions and values, different looks. Government is the caretaker of everyone, why are you making your people less worthy? You have made the people so frustrated that the present problem with youth is their hairstyles and the government doesntlet them do what they want with their hair.
Is this the governments ambitions and goals? Is this what the people deserve?
It's really insulting our people.
Why are you not recognizing your people?
You really think our problem is some girl wearing clothes that's too revealing?
Is this our countries problem? Is this our societys problem?

The irony is his government started caring for those problems such as womens clothes and what people do... a crackdown on social issues they call it, such as dress code.

The Iranian Soldier-Bear of Monte Cassino

IranianChamber: After the Battle of Monte Cassino, one of the fiercest and bloodiest conflicts of the Second World War, many accounts emerged of the bravery and heroism of the soldiers. But perhaps the strangest story of all was of an Iranian brown bear who served alongside the allied soldiers in the worst heat of the battle. Despite the incessant bombardment and constant gunfire, the bear carried vital supplies of ammunition and food to his fellow-soldiers fighting on the mountainside. Many observers who witnessed his remarkable actions doubted the reality of what they were seeing. But the story was no legend.

They prefer the people of falsehood to the people of the truth out of envy and hostility. This earns them condemnation and is a warning to us not to do as they did." Continue

Da Vinci Code

A movie based on the book by Dan Brown, pure fiction with some fact...

Ive never read the book because I dont read books that dont interest me and also books with plots that seem too obvious.

I watched the movie the second day it was out on the theaters and let me say, it was a good thriller and with some interesting plots but almost every timeyou could have guessed what would come next.

Some funny parts I have to say were the monk beating himself up for Jesus, Tom Hanks saying he needs a library fast and many more...

2 hours long with a lot of useless dialogue and I'm not sure why Christians are upset about this movie. The whole concept is WHAT IF... nothing else and I respect that. Besides that if anyone believes the religious aspects of this movie then they are clearly stupid.

Watch it, its a good fun movie but not a great movie... if your parents going to kick you out of your house for watching this movie then thats just ridiculous.

If you are going to starve your self to death so people will not watch this movie then you need a life, and if youre suing this movie for religious reasons than again your stupid.

Thats all I have to say
