They Are Aimed at the Heartland!

One of the most successful intelligence hornswoggles of all time, the 500 kilograms of Niger Yellowcake allegedly shipped to Iraq, may take a bow and exit stage left. And let's put the spotlight on and give a big welcome to (ta-daa!): The Twelve Missing Russian Cruise Missiles Able to Carry a Nuclear Payload Recently Heisted from a Former Soviet Republic and Delivered to Iran. Hell, why not? The bigger the lie, the greater the audience.

I can only assume that the staff of Israeli General Aharon Zeevi play some sort of challenge to see who can come up with --not a big lie, not a deliberately gross exaggeration-- but the grand unified quantum lysergic hornswoggle. They're getting close.

"U"r pulling my "kraine", Nur!

It's going to be fun following this story before it hits the front page of the NYTimes, and the editors there proclaim themselves brave for their move to cover it.

What evidence do u have that Iran did not receive those missiles? Or are u alking out of your ass again.

And btw, no one said that yellowcake was shipped to Iraq, merely that Iraq was interested in acquiring it.

"On 28 January 2005, Ukranian parliamentarian Hryhoriy Omelchenko issued an open letter to President Viktor Yushchenko that Ukraine had illegally sold cruise missiles to Iran. It's was a credible report, which names dates, names, the bank accounts, fictitious shell companies that were set up to extradite the transfer of money from Iran. Plus there was collaborating evidence to this whole affair. He refered to a paper company set up in Cyprus to channel money for the missiles."

Don't worry about the facts, they will only confuse you.

"Hryhoriy" Omelchenko? The would be "Hornswoggle" Omelchenko.

Ha ha ha. The head of state has to be informed by a crackpot in parliament that the missile inventory is down by 12.

So I guess the answer to my question is that you have no evidence and are talking out your ass. Thanks for the clarification.

And btw, Hryhoriy is Gregory in Ukranian.
