It’s all in the presentation

My guess is that Iran is having an episode of sphincter clenching right now, and is digging defensive trenches as fast as they can, assuming an invasion is on it’s way. But you can’t tell the people that. They might be upset. They might think the mighty Iranian Army isn’t quite up to the task of taking the fight to the enemy. Whoever the enemy might be today. So it’s time for some spin. Hmm, what to say, what to say ...

Iran Preparing Graves for Its Enemies



A senior Iranian commander on Sunday said his country would prepare 320,000 graves to accommodate its slain enemies in the event of an attack on the country. The remark was a veiled warning amid increasing tensions over Tehran’s controversial nuclear activities.

The Mehr news agency quoted Gen. Mir-Faisal Bagherzadeh as saying the graves would be dug in Iran’s border provinces, to provide for the burial of enemies in line with the Geneva Conventions.

“The burial of slain soldiers will be carried out decently and in little time,” said Bagherzadeh, a senior officer in the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) who heads a propaganda body called the Sacred Defense Foundation.

“We do not wish the families of enemy soldiers to experience what Americans had to go through in the aftermath of the Vietnam War,” he added, apparently referring to the ordeal faced by families of MIAs during and after that conflict.

Although couched in humanitarian terms, Bagherzadeh’s comments come as top Iranians step up belligerent rhetoric in the face of reports suggesting that Israel or the United States are planning to attack Iran, and specifically its nuclear facilities.

The head of the IRGC, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, at the weekend delivered stern warnings to Iran’s enemies, telling the conservative Jam-e Jam newspaper that Israel was within easy range of Iran’s missiles.

“Our missile power and capability are such that the Zionist regime—despite all its abilities—cannot confront it,” he said.

Jafari told Iran’s neighbors that they would also be held responsible if they allowed their soil to be used to launch attacks against Iran.

... and so on, yadda yadda. Sounds like some empty scimitar rattling to me. But I love the spin. I guess when the bombs start falling they’ll announce a sudden swimming pool and well digging program. I guess we know where Baghdad Bob went after all!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
