Iran’s New Bomber

Now that Iran has a nuclear power plant, the next logical step is making nuclear weapons. Forget for the moment that Iran’s leader, Ahmadinejad,  says they won’t make any.

Iran has, however, just unveiled its new unmanned drone bomber, named Karrar (Farsi for striker). Ahmadinejad calls it Iran’s “Ambassador of Death.” Is this the means by which Iran can attack Israel as well as other countries (even America)?

Msnbc reports,

“The scope of Iran’s reaction will include the entire earth,” said Ahmadinejad. “We also tell you — the West — that all options are on the table.”

As far as I’m concerned, this is clearly a warning to Western Europe as well as the U.S.  It is more likely that Europe would be hit rather than the US, but no possibilities can be excluded at this point.

Mankind’s Giant Puzzle

I have been reading news stories as well as watching the 3 main cable news channels, trying to piece together the puzzle of what is really happening on our planet. What would an alien race think of us if they were watching us invisibly, able to go everywhere and see everything?

They would see hypocrisy in the moralizing preachers and public figures who claim to stand for “family values” then are caught in adultery, prostitution, or pornography. And in particular, “Christians” whose life choices are so far from Christ’s –who welcomed foreigners rather than fearing them — that the term “Christian” seems like a travesty.

They would see the United States slipping in economic stability, infant mortality, civil rights (read the Patriot Act) and education while legislators play games of “musical  amendments” and “hot issue”. Childishly they guard their fortresses, the donkey and the elephant scarcely remembering that they are both animals.

They would see our impulsiveness and widespread inability to wait for anything. Perhaps they would wonder why we didn’t pay more attention to long term goals, and instead polluted the air, tore down the mountains, contaminated the water, and designed ever new and ready means to check out of life for awhile.

I doubt that they would consider us a threat to them, at least not at present. They would consider it much more likely that we would destroy ourselves.
