"We'll Level Tel Aviv"
Iran has responded to a Fox News interview from late last week wherein Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that Israel is currently updating its plans to strike Iran’s nuclear program and is prepared to act independently if the United States is not willing. The interview was unusually blunt even for Israel in terms of the defense chief openly stating war plans.
Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami promptly fired back with a counterthreat on Sunday. He said Iran's military will level Tel Aviv and Haifa should Israel do anything "out of desperation".
Sometimes, the Zionist regime [Israel] out of desperation makes big claims against the Islamic Republic of Iran to allegedly threaten it," Hatami said as cited in The Times of Israel via Iranian state media.
"It must know that if it does a damn thing, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground," he followed up with according to an English translation. Hatami was addressing a military ceremony.
That was in response to the threat from Israel:
"If the world stops them [Iran] before, it’s much the better. But if not, we must stand independently and we must defend ourselves by ourselves."
"The Iranian nuclear aspiration must be stopped... We must defend ourselves by ourselves," Gantz had asserted.
Iran has stated for decades that it is against their beliefs to build nuclear weapons and that their nuclear program is for energy. But of course Bibi’s getting nervous about his being found guilty of lots of crimes and he will either have to step down or go to prison. I’m hoping that his buttocks will be thrown in prison. I don’t care on what charges as long as his ass rots there for his crimes against Palestinians.
Blinken has been making lots of noise about Iran lately too and I’m wondering just how close Israel is to bombing Iran without our
permission military support? Of course if he does and it turns into a ground war, you know that none of Israel’s troops will have to go. Oh no that honor goes to ours and our unfortunate nato allies' troops. Dammit.
OBiden bombed Syria just after he spoke with Bibi and was probably given orders to do it, but I’m not sure who had what to prove to who. Kamillary is more a follower than a leader, but I guess it depends on who is training her. Someone at State I think.
OT. Way OT but this is funny. Pepe Le Pew got inserted into rape culture and the Twit went bezerk.
The woke cancel culture mob continues trucking along with their crusade against free speech, targeting popular Dr. Seuss books last week as they said some of these beloved children's books contain racist imagery. As the mob continues to look for stuff to burn figuratively, cartoon characters like Pepé Le Pew, a character from the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons from the 1940s, is the next target.
New York Times liberal columnist Charles Blow recently argued in an op-ed and in a series of tweets how Pepé Le Pew "normalized rape culture." He tweeted Saturday a scene from the cartoon: "Let's see, he grabs/kisses a girl/stranger repeatedly, without consent and against her will. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won't release her. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping."
In a separate tweet, Blow continued: "This helped teach boys that "no" didn't really mean no, that it was a part of "the game," the starting line of a power struggle. It taught overcoming a woman's strenuous, even physical objections was normal, adorable, funny. They didn't even give the woman the ability to SPEAK."
The Media Research Center, a top media watchdog, responded to Blow's op-ed following the recent cancel mob's assault on Dr. Seuss, who said:
"Congrats to anyone who had "liberals try to cancel Looney Tunes" on their 2021 bingo card."
This Twitter user makes an interesting point:
"Yeah, this was on TV. it was normal to show it to children in an 'evolving society' it's easy (for most of us) to see how messed up and wrong a cartoon from 80 years ago feels today, but few of us will imagine how what we are doing TODAY may look like 80 years from now."
Also there is some weird talk about the Dr. Seuss book thingy. If anyone knows more spill.
