Another Stuxnet-like virus on the loose

Remember Stuxnet, the exotic and sophisticated computer virus apparently designed to ruin Iran’s secret nuclear fuel centrifuges? Looks like somebody borrowed some of the Stuxnet code, created a new superbug, and set it loose. The mysterious Stuxnet worm — perhaps the most powerful ever created — managed to infiltrate computer systems in Iran and do […]

Iran: Enemy Number 1

Video: Iranian boats harrass U.S. Navy ships

Take it from a former USCG Deck Watch Officer: those boats were ridiculously close. I’m astonished that the Navy didn’t destroy them. The bombing of the USS Cole shows just how dangerous one small boat can be, let alone five of ’em. Why were they allowed to live? It’s a matter of time before they […]

Fred dings Huckabee on Iran

Fred takes aim at Huckabee’s ignorance about the latest National Intelligence Estimate regarding Iran. I wonder why? Oh.

Is Sherrod Brown anxious to appease Iran?

You be the judge. Sherrod Brown voted no on the Lieberman-Kyl amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008. Here’s the text, minus the findings: SEC. 1535. SENSE OF SENATE ON IRAN. (a) Findings.–The Senate makes the following findings: … (b) Sense of Senate.–It is the sense of the Senate– (1) that […]

Talk about a faith-based community

The “reality-based” Left’s clearly suffering from a chronic case of Bush Derangement Syndrome. Facts, logic and reason be damned. A story from an “anonymous source” on a carrier asserts that we’re about to attack Iran, ergo it’s too juicy to doubt. What are ya gonna believe, a ripping good yarn about eeeevil neocon conspiracies or […]

The next Scott Beauchamp? (Updated)

UPDATE: What a shock. The lefty blogger at DKos just deleted his post. Coward. — My favorite blogging aviator Neptunus Lex cries foul over a conspiratorial post at Daily Kos alleging that America is about to attack Iran. The DKos diarist claims his information comes from an anonymous Navy officer aboard a carrier. By the […]

Iran divestment bill introduced in Ohio House

Yesterday, State Representatives Josh Mandel and Shannon Jones finally introduced a bill that would require Ohio’s state pension fund managers to cut all financial ties with any company that does business with (or in) Iran. It’s a good start. Here are the high points: Ohio state pension fund managers are forbidden to invest in any […]

The Royal Marines are pansies

So say Ralph Peters and John Derbyshire. This isn’t the first time that Tony Blair has knuckled under to the degenerates in Tehran. Sadly I have to agree with Peters and Derbyshire. The Royal Marines have become a pale shadow of their forebears, and are now a bunch of weak-kneed sissies.

Paris Hilton does Iraq

Thanks to Hugh Hewitt, I found a brutal takedown of the Iraq Study Group’s report. John Podhoretz has penned a razor-sharp rebuttal to James Baker and friends. The nation’s capital hasn’t seen such concentrated wisdom in one place since Paris Hilton dined alone at the Hooters on Connecticut Avenue. … Also in the Support Group: […]

Too much waiting, not enough action

Robert Tracinski sees Iran as a burgeoning threat, and argues that we can’t sit and watch it metastasize much longer. Personally, I’m tired of waiting in vain for the Iranian dissident movement to topple the regime for us. I think we ought to strike now, international whining be damned. Update: More by Tracinski on the […]

Iranian troops fighting in Lebanon?

Unconfirmed reports say that members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard have been found among the Hezbollah dead. If it’s true, this may well broaden into a regional war. Read Yoni The Blogger to stay on top of things.

The return of yellow armbands

Canada’s National Post reports on a new law mandating identification badges for religious minorities … in Iran: According to the Post, Iran’s 25,000 Jews would have to sew a yellow strip of cloth on their clothes. Christians would have to adorn red badges and Zoroastrians would be have to wear blue strips of cloth. To […]
