Will Iran Explode On February 11th Anniversary?

By
January 31, 2010

Obama is deploying a missile shield in the Gulf. Meanwhile, Iran is saying it will deliver a "telling blow" to the global powers on Feb 11.

Tension between the US and Iran heightened dramatically today with the disclosure that Barack Obama is deploying a missile shield to protect American allies in the Gulf from attack by Tehran.

The US is dispatching Patriot defensive missiles to four countries – Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Kuwait – and keeping two ships in the Gulf capable of shooting down Iranian missiles. Washington is also helping Saudi Arabia develop a force to protect its oil installations.

February 11th has some current and past significance.

Seen from inside Iran, the threatened deployment of anti-missile defences can only be bad news. The two defeated candidates, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, called on Saturday for a mass protest on 11 February, the anniversary of the Islamic revolution, despite the hanging of two dissidents last week and warnings from the Revolutionary Guard that the protest would be crushed.

    The Iranian issue may very well place Hillary in a postion to be asked to run.. Sanctions were never going to work.

    OH YEAH HELP SAUDI ARABIA PROTECT IT’S PRECIOUS OIL!! OBAMA’S A SHILL FOR THE OIL COMPANIES!!! NO BLOOD FOR OIL!!!
    I just figured that I’d remind the lefties of what they’d normally sound like.

    LOL, Xerocky…right on target. That said, kudos to Obama for taking this action. I’m 98% against him, but have to give credit where due.

    Hopefully, the nuthatches in Iran will do something really impressive like launch an attack on Iraq, lob a few missiles at Israel or one of our ships, etc. Then we can really get down to the business of mopping the floor with these rag heads.

    Lets see the spin from the teleprompter president…Roger Ailes on ABC this weekend stated the obvious that Barry, the Dems and the media fear the most…he stated Americans number one concern is national security over jobs and healthcare.

    I wonder if any entity is tracking Iranian shipping? I know they have tested an EMP missle, and it occurred to me that perhaps they had obtained a weapon from No. Korea. I read last week the No. Korean plan of attack against the US included an EMP, so I’m more curious than anything else. Does anyone know any of these things?

  7. Phil Adams says:

    The possible list of “targets” for Iran are endless. My main concern is what happens if he actually fires of several missles toward Israel? Are we going to be able to keep Israel from turning Iran into a glass coated skating rink? What are the Saudi’s gonna do if We or Israel up and clean his clock? Is the world really ready to have the kind of mayhem that this could generate? What would happen if that big black box in the sand get nuked? I am kinda scared, no really scared that our President is not ready for this nor is he in touch with and in the good graces of those who would give him the advice that he needs. This could get nasty and get nasty quick.

  8. When the leader of Iran makes these proclamations he is doing it out of his own understanding of God’s will, which is the real scary part. He should be taken seriously. If he says I will wipe Israel off the map then he truly has the will to do it, but hopefully at this point does not have the means. The administration must take him more seriously than her citizens with the recent military presence in that part of the world. As the author of the book “Final Warning” we need to take him seriously

    I think Iran is planning to celebrate “National Hummus Day”. It is obvious that Iran holds the entire world hostage with their seemingly endless supply of Hummus. While the rest of the world pays dearly for this widely consummed dip, Iranians have been feasting and taughnting the west and it’s allies.
    Iranian president Manny Ahmadinejad is quoted as saying, “The world will crumble without this middle eastern delight and Iranians will be a world power as the infidels and the jews are forced to eat their falafel with no dressing and americans will only have nachos to snack on while watching their american,christian sporting events that celebrates satan and defiles the entire muslim world…blessed be allah”
    Hummus, according to the Irian government has mystical powers and is used to fuel tanks and is used as a lubricant of russian rifles.

    I think that missile that Iran shot up in space with the NON-HALAL animals has also got a nuke on it. That means an EMP- either over us or Israel.
    I’ve got more on this at my blog.

    War with iran will destroy the green movement IN iran which is becoming stronger and stronger as the days go. War with iran will achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of average iranian citizens. War with iran will not make middle east a better a place or a the whole world in fact, and dont forget the ever growing green movement in iran for peace and democracy. If obama really wants what is best for the people of iran and the people of the world he most continue with the sanctions and give as much support he can to the iranian people who have been under dictatorship for the past 30 years and want change.. Stupid americans cant understand theis things….
