Iran Scoffs

at U.S. Account of Alleged Assassination Plot


October 13, 2011
The New York Times


The government of Iran on Thursday escalated

its rebuttal of American criminal charges

that it was behind a murder conspiracy in Washington,

calling the claims that Iranian agents

had plotted to kill the Saudi ambassador

with the help of a Mexican drug gang

so ludicrous that even politicians and press in the United States

were expressing skepticism about such a scheme.

One night I heard a noise. I looked out the window. He saw me.

"Close the window and go back to sleep. There's a fire at the

reactor. I'll be back soon."


I didn't see the explosion itself. Just the flames. Everything was


The whole sky. A tall flame. And smoke. The heat was awful.

And he's still not back. The smoke was from the burning bitumen,

which had covered the roof. He said later it was like walking on tar.


They tried to beat down the flames.

They kicked at the burning graphite with their feet ...

They weren't wearing their canvas gear.

They went off just as they were, in their shirt sleeves.

No one told them.

GI Laughed at Grenade Movie Scene



Weeks before launching a deadly grenade attack on his comrades,

Sgt. Hasan Akbar attended a camp showing

and laughed at a scene of U.S. troops being hit by a grenade,

a soldier testified Monday.

I respond that I am only making sure

that people don't touch him or block his sign.

He asks why I am doing this.

I begin to explain that as a Quaker,

I am committed to equality and peace.

He interrupts me repeatedly,

then tells me that I am not a Quaker.

I fall for the bait and reply that I am.

He continues to talk at me, his voice rising, almost yelling.

I lower my voice and slow down, hoping to slow him down in turn.

By this point a bit of a crowd has gathered around us

I  find myself getting angry at him and want to argue back.

Everybody's talking at you on phones


As the Post Office delivers a landline deal,

Sam Dunn cuts through a tangle of tariffs to help you find

the best rates to beat BT

It could be time to hang up on your phone company.

A battle between service providers,

each wanting a bigger slice

of our £4.3bn residential landline market,

is helping to cut the cost of calls

and offer highly attractive deals.

The first thing to tell you

about the family-owned Summer Isles Hotel is that,

by the time you read this,

it will be closing its doors until next Easter.

Do not swear at me. I am doing you a service.

Though a well-kept secret among its devotees,

they are so numerous that,

if you tried to get in during the season,

you would be turned away.

This way you can book for next season.

    All for one: The menu at the Summer Isles Hotel
    is a blessing for those who can't make up their minds.
    And yes, it was worth the 700-mile trip, says Jay Rayner, O, 5.10.3003,






And the spittle flies on.

Last month, during an international match,

the England captain David Beckham was involved

in a similar dispute with the Turkish player Alpay.

The England player alleges that his opposite number

made a profane insult about his mother,

but it was the suggestion that Beckham had spat

on the player's Turkish badge

that really got him riled. "I don't spit at people.

As far as I'm concerned it's all over and done with,

but if he keeps coming out saying things like that

obviously I'm going to defend myself."

Last year the Arsenal player Dennis Bergkamp was fined £5,000

for stamping on Blackburn's Nils-Eric Johanssen;

three years earlier his teammate Patrick Vieira

had been stung for £45,000

and banned for six matches for spitting.

Here's one in the eye:
When Lazio's Sinisa Mihajlovic expelled a mouthful of phlegm
towards the ear of Chelsea's Adrian Mutu on Tuesday night,
he was delivering the most potent insult at his disposal.
But what makes spitting so uniquely offensive? Esther Addley investigates, G, 6.11.2003, http://www.guardian.co.uk/g2/story/0,3604,1078641,00.html






It was all too much for some.

One of the distraught Israeli relatives

shouted at Mr Barghouti's daughter "whore" in Arabic.

A mother whose daughter had died in a Palestinian attack

had to be restrained by Israeli security

when she rushed across benches

in a determined attempt to reach Ruba,

shouting: "You are going to die, as my daughter died."

Look at Bush's enemies:

they are the reason

why he deserves re-election



when I covered the last US presidential election campaign,

it was hard to be impressed with George W. Bush.

He seemed a callow sort,

propelled effortlessly towards the presidency

by a combination of heredity and money,

swagger and bonhomie.
