I watched this 90 minute documentary on Iran tonight-we have good reason to be afraid. It has been said many times, we made a massive mistake in attacking Iraq and not dealing with Iran.


C4 2100-2230
Iran
[subtitles] [watch live]Once Upon a Time in Iran
A steady drumbeat of leaks suggests that the US and/or Israel may attack Iran sometime over the coming months. BAFTA award-winning director Kevin Sim follows pilgrims on a breath-taking spiritual journey through Iran and Iraq to reveal how a murder that took place nearly 1,400 years ago still shapes the dangerous world of the Middle East.

9.00pm Once Upon a Time in IranWith Iran under increasing threat of military attack, award-winning director Kevin Sims follows pilgrims on a spiritual journey through Iran and Iraq. He reveals how the repercussions of a 1,400-year-old murder are still felt in the Middle East today. The film reaches the source of a tale that has galvanised Iranian politics for hundreds of years.

Their attitude to martyrdom is chilling.

If you lived here and had a President saying things like "Because of your work, children who once wanted to die are now preparing to live."(speaking at the White House summit on malaria, Dec. 14, 2006), wouldn't you be just a tad embarrassed?

Jill, not really.....I live over here and if you see what these govt. authorities do and say every day you would crawl under something and hide if you are embarassed by Bush and his boys.

Edited....But to be fair you are right if I lived over there, whereas here I can blow these local boneheads off and say they are screwing their own country and people. Bush.....he is more of a joke rather than an embarassment for me, I find humor, sometimes sick humor, but humor nonetheless in alot that he and Dick do. I figure I cannot change it so find something to laugh in it too laugh about.
