Those Crazy Iranians

Filed under: Our World — iknowkeith @ 10:03 pm

You’ve got to love the quality news that is on government controlled news media.

These are from the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) web site.
Iran is the safest place on earth

Iran is the safest place on earth, said visiting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran on Tuesday referring to increasing requests for making investments in the country.

In a meeting with the Azerbaijan-based Iranians, the president who arrived here Tuesday on a two-day official visit, said, “The volume of Iran’s contracts with the world countries is rising.”
“Some (countries) are ready to invest in Iran up to six billion dollars and some people in Malaysia, China and Spain are interested to make investments in our country arguing that ill-wishers cannot take any measures against Iran,” stressed the president.


Iran’s guided intelligent bomb named `Ghased’ (Messenger) will be operational during Government Week (August 24-30).

Defense Ministry’s Defense Propagation Department said the bomb, developed by the Ministry’s technicians and experts, is one of the most powerful, modern and intelligent bombs of the world, whose construction has thus far been under monopoly of a few states.

The bomb can be fired from F4 and F5 planes.

I don’t know the validity of either of these reports. I am especially doubtful of the first one. Who in their right mind would invest in Iran right now? With the IRGC recently added to the terror list, investors are more likely running away with cash in hand.
I did enjoy the excellent writing style and over-the-top propaganda of the Iranian news.



  1. State of the art bomb from an F4 or F 5.? 20 + yrs old total complement 50 F5 40 ish F4. I’m thinking any intelligent bomb Iran has is a Rev. Guard strapped w/explosives. He recites stuff as he floats majestically to his target.

  2. I love that they actually have an officially-recognized “Government Week”. That’s when you know your despotism is absolute, when you don’t even have to make an effort to be subtle about it.
