... Iranian leaders are responding frantically, and with increasing unpredictability, to the tightening of sanctions by the West.... according to intelligence analysts? according to the U.N.? Or is the tendency of Persians to spaz a documented fact and not an assertion that needs to be sourced?
The State Department manufactures its own employment. But it's a delicate balance -- you want the wogs just hostile enough to keep the paychecks coming, but not so hostile that the true enemy -- the DoD -- gets to increase its share of the pie.
shirley you mean discreet, cause a discrete cough sounds kinda naughty in the ventriloquist sense..
Who in the hell actually understands Persian motivation? Their brand of Orientalism has not been properly studied so now our government is in the unenviable position of trying to perform anthropological studies at the same time as it's trying to do diplomatic work. I mean how do you handle a culture that responds hostilely to continued provocation? What do you do when your consistent undermining of peaceful solutions is met with ungrateful bad mouthing? I for one do not envy Mr. Obama. Trying to solve this problem is about as straightforward as turning on the faucet and expecting water to come out!
@PA 11:53 I hear those Iranians used to be able to turn a faucet and get water until we helped them to become democratic.
Ooops I meant Iraqis.
One can only hope that someday democracy, rather than water, flows freely in Iran as in Iraq.
@PRYa think that the average sheeple can make out the difference?The Dull Sycophant
since when is the nytimes' mideast reporting not trustworthy?
The Iraqi people may not have access to electricity or running water anymore, but what they do have is the freedom to watch as Maliki's government imprisons political opponents while allowing foreign oil companies to exploit their natural resources for profit. If that isn't the very essence of democracy in action, I don't know what is.

"Sue, Date, and Land"? "San Torum"? "Jude A. O'Christian"? Why put in the effort to make "cutesy" versions of the original phrases if the "cutesy" versions aren't clever and don't mean anything?

Nonny 12:53: It's one thing to take proper names for phrases, but how're you s'pos'd to enjoy the puns if you don't know what they mean?
Those mysterious Orientals, so inscrutable, who could understand their mysterious and nefarious ways? Can nObama avoid war with Iran? Truly he is trying so hard to do so with his navy strutting up and down the Iranian coast. That’s the true meaning of diplomacy, do what we want or we’ll blow the bejeezus out of you. Netan Yahoo does his stand-up comedy very well, he gets funnier every time! Iran is developing mega-Godzillas by cloning tuna fish with howler monkeys, watch out, those sneaky Persians. Can’t trust ‘em. Next up, Falkland Islands nuclear threat to England.
Rob, don't forget the mail-order M.D. academy attendees in Grenada, threatened gravely and in dire need of rescue!
It's about drawing a line in the sand.
CharlieFox, how can the degrees be "mail order" when the clients are in Grenada?.Bon pour l'Orient, perhaps?The Dull Scophant
Correction:Bon pour le VA, as Medicare makes do with physicians from the subcontinent.The Dull Sycophant
G15, bitchez!!!The Dull Sycophant
mail-order = slang-or-shorthand for not AMA accredited at the time and I leave it to you to guess as to what I think about that lack of accreditation and I'm sure you'll project adequately sincerely the things you wish were my thoughts.
Mail Order:Mail order is a term which describes the buying of goods or services by mail delivery. The buyer places an order for the desired products with the merchant through some remote method such as through a telephone call or web site. Then, the products are delivered to the customer.But, yes, I forgot, in speaking with the natives one should remember that their words means strictly what they intend them to mean. Nothing more, nothing less.As to the matter at hand, Foxy, WHO-accredited is all you need. AMA can kiss my fat, hairy, papilloma sprinkled ass.G15, bitchez!The Dull Sycophant
For your information, the Supreme Court has roundly rejected prior restraint.
Karl,Yes, Grenada was certainly a close call. If we didn’t stop them there they would be in Los Angeles tomorrow.
I think America's mission is the middle east, south America and one other continent.
I thought Orientals were Chinamen.
