Iran accuses U.S. Navy of 'illegal and provocative acts'


#1

Iran has accused the United States of “illegal and provocative acts,” including repeated violations of Iranian airspace, in a letter submitted Friday to the United Nations.

The message from Iran’s U.N. ambassador, Mohammad Khazaee, first obtained by the Associated Press, argues that the U.S. Navy has regularly conducted flights over Iranian territory in the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman.

The letter was sent to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the U.N. Security Council. It details seven specific incidents in October and November during which American drones entered Iranian airspace, despite radio warnings.

Poor babies dislike they do not have free reign to do what they want. They are supplying arms and missiles to Palestine, and doing other covert work. Turkey is by passing sanctions to deal with them. Their nuclear enrichment program is going full blast.

But hey it is others who are the aggressors RIGHT?

Iran can cry about it all they want. I don’t care.

Only America is allowed to do that.

Only America is allowed to do that too, right? I mean, we covertly sent weapons and had CIA agents on the ground helping the Libyan (al-qaeda affiliated) rebels.

Didn’t we do that as well in the Iran-Contra affair?

There’s no evidence they’ve enriched further than 20% which they are legally allowed to do. There’s also no evidence they’re building a bomb, they’re as close to a bomb as Saddam was to having nuclear weapons in 2004. But go ahead, continue beating the war drums.

Violating the sovereignty of another nation is aggression. How would you react if Iran was flying drones over Texas?

These double-standard “America can do no wrong” bull is what makes people hate us and why not even our allies respect us anymore.

Of course…the big mistake is giving credibility to Iran’s assertions without proof. They always tell the truth of course. [/sarc]
And they have NO right under the NPF to enrich to 20%. Makovsky and Misztal: Iran Has No ‘Right’ to Enrich Uranium - WSJ.com

Lets see if I can write this in a way that “won’t sound insulting”.

When anyone (except an RO member, this does not apply to RO members) decides to draw a moral equivalency between a known Terrorist supporting Nation (like say Iran for example who regularly reaffirms their commitment to complete genocide of Israel and the United States) to the motives and actions of the United States, that person (unless of course they are an RO member) are just perpetuating the same tired Ron Paul/Nazi propaganda that has littered the Free World since the 1930’s.

If however any RO member chooses to embrace and perpetuate this propaganda then it of course ceases to be the same tired, Anti Semitic/Anti American propaganda and is transformed into a valid, fresh opinion whose author is worthy of serious consideration and praise.

It should also be said that while instantly assigning credibility to the claims of a Nation like Iran while simultaneously assuming zero credibility of the United States would be considered evidence of great idiocy and blind hatred for the United States if uttered by someone who is not an RO member (like Ron Paul), this exact same opinion becomes something to be seriously considered and respected if voiced by an RO member.

Certainly a reply that could be interpreted as “insulting” to those without access to a dictionary would never be appropriate.

Also, those who would consider equating the motives and actions of the United States to a dung pile like Iran as a huge insult should remember that if the person making this case is an RO member then their intended insult ceases to be insulting, great care should be taken to embrace this concept before offering a reply to such imbecilic rantings.

But just in case I have crossed the line…Just Kidding.

Holy guacamole! That is awesomeness of a previously unknown level.

It’s a good thing that we don’t have any members here on RO like that.
