Yesterday the Fars News Agency quoted an Iranian Vice President as stating that their countries drought is part of a soft war, and Hassan Mousavi, their head of tourism and cultural heritage said "The world arrogance and colonist (term used by Iranian authorities to label the West) are influencing Iran's climate conditions using technology... The drought is an acute issue and soft war is completely evident... This level of drought is not normal." I love this, that these backwards ass savages believe so completely in our technological superiority that they are willing to claim we have a weather machine. The only thing that would make it better is if we actually had a weather machine.
Last year, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused Western
countries of devising plans to "cause drought" in Iran, adding that
"European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump"
their water on their continent. It is inconceivable that we actually act in a respectful manner towards the demands of such a ludicrously backwards nation, and if I had my way we would be strategically striking them with satellite based weaponry (see my response to Blinking Iranians on Nuking Politics for details) until they pray to us or rename their country East Texas and petition for statehood.
A more serious take on this news can be found at Yahoo! News Canada, for some reason, I think those pesky moose riding hockey lovers might try to claim credit for the Iranians fearing us.
