Gas Prices, is Chavez trying to manipulate them?

By manny osborne, published on Jul 22, 2007

... Venezuela bought 53 helicopters and 24 Sukhoi airplanes plus 100,000 Kalashnikov from Russia expending an estimated of 3,000 millions of dollars. Washington not only have refused to sale parts to the old F-16s, but when Chavez tried to buy airplanes from Brazil and Spain Washington pressured the two governments to stop the transaction. Chavez's Oil Reserves Venezuela 313,000 millions of barrels, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Abu Dhudai, Iran and Qatar have 676,000 millions of barrels, so we are going to see Chavez for a long period of time trying and manipulating oil prices and hurting our pockets. (more)

Senator Sheehan? Where's My Gun?

By D. E. Carson, published on Jul 9, 2007

... the United States, but the other end MUST BE OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY. I’m yelling here in the hopes that some of you who like to follow Cindy Sheehan like lemmings to a cliff will listen before she takes you on over. If the conversation begins in the United States and ends in Afghanistan or Iran, then yes, the conversation should be tapped because you never know if someone is plotting another bombing of an airport (can you say Glasgow, Scotland?). Why do I want this program to be left alone? Frankly, I’m not real thrilled about watching Americans get slaughtered at an airport ... (more)

Darband: A Bomb Iranian Restaurant In LA*

By Reza B, published on May 26, 2007

Nestled snuggly on Ventura Boulevard between Tampa and Winnetka sits one of Los Angeles’s best Iranian restaurants: Darband. The restaurant carries the name of a lush green mountain valley in the Alborz Mountains, known for restaurants that offer excellent cuisine and unparalleled ambiance. While Darband restaurant is not in a mountain valley, but rather in “the Valley,” it does not fail to live up to its’ namesake’s reputation for quality. I’ve tried almost every Iranian/Persian restaurant in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Chicago, New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco—yes... (more)

My Least Favorite Beach Boy

By Matt Weston, published on Apr 21, 2007

...American casualties were reported during McCain’s visit. The delegation indeed proved Baghdad security is sound for those intrepid enough to move about for sixty-minutes with a heavy military escort. While on a campaign stop in South Carolina this week, McCain sung the words “Bomb Iran” to the Beach Boys’ tune “Barbara Ann” in response to a question about potential military action to thwart Tehran’s suspected build-up of nuclear weapons. Campaign spokesman Matt David said the question was put light-heartedly and McCain was trying to bring... (more)

Hollywood's 300 vs. Iran's 69,000,000

By Reza B, published on Mar 15, 2007

A little background before I begin... In 1935 the Shah (King) of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, decided that, in order to distance himself from the failings of the previous Qajar Dynasty, he would change the ancient name of Persia to Iran (a word derived from the word Aryan—or Ariya in Farsi, the official language of Iranians). From that moment on, Persians were no longer called Persians; rather they became the first Iranians. The Persian Empire—at least in name—was gone, and in its place rose Iran. Flash forward seventy-two years to 2007 and we find ourselves in the midst of yet another struggle... (more)

By Reza B, published on Feb 22, 2007

I want to predicate my article by saying that nothing is more offensive to me than an offensive war, and that no one should have the means, through nuclear, or other weapons, to erase human civilization from this world. Also, I'm not writing this article to support the regime in Iran no one wants to see a free Iran more than I. IF I SUBMIT TO AN IRRATIONAL STATE OF TERROR, CAN I EVER BE SECURE? Sure, there is a war against "terror," and sure the world is not as "secure" as it once was, but what do the words "terror" and "secure" mean anyway? The United States is a country with a long... (more)
