thank God for Vice-President Cheney. I wish he was running for President, then we would have a real choice.

LEESBURG, Va. The United States and other nations will not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon, Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday.

"Our country, and the entire international community, cannot stand by as a terror-supporting state fulfills its grandest ambitions," Cheney said in a speech to the Washington Institute for Near East Studies.

He said Iran's efforts to pursue technology that would allow them to build a nuclear weapon are obvious and that "the regime continues to practice delay and deceit in an obvious effort to buy time."

If Iran continues on its current course, Cheney said the U.S. and other nations are prepared to take action. The vice president made no specific reference to military action.

"We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon," he said.
God Bless Dick Cheney

re: Cheney: 'We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon'

I love Iranian cinema! Like everybody else who's ever seen it, I worship "The White Baloon."

I also love "Children of Heaven," Mohsen Makhmalbaf's "Gabbeh," (in which people depicted on a woven tapestry emerge to tell their stories), the stunning "Kandahar," the elegiac "Taste of Cherry" and "The Wind Will Carry Us." There are many, many others I have seen and loved.

It is so thrilling and inspiring to watch the results of artists creating even under the most oppressive of regimes. It is heartening to know that there will always be people who strive to tell the stories of ordinary citizens, and to remind us of the gifts and talents that so many humans who live under the hand of insane leaders possess. When one speaks of a people only by the name of the country in which they had no choice but to be born, it's often a good idea to look at the art that has managed to emerge there and to remember that "Iran" represents to much more than a brand name, it represents real, breathing, creative people.

While it's a good idea to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of insane leaders, the citizens of other countries with wackjobs in power might like to try to take a look at the art that the citizens living there have managed to create. Take US citizens under De Facto President Cheney, for instance.

Does anybody else here have favorite Iranian films?

Now, you don't want to get caught siding with the terrorists again, do you?

HDT, do you understand the difference between citizens and politicians?

Do you understand the difference between ART and GOVERNMENT

To imply that Namo is remotely siding with terrorists because he speaks about film from a country proves your lack of reading comprehension, flawed logic and that you're a horrible writer.

Thanks for the proof yet again.

Craig, have you ever seen any Iranian cinema? I'd love to hear about it. It's quite inspiring the way the artists have evolved an allegorical cinematic language that basically talks about surviving and creating under a terribly repressive regime.

Iranian filmmakers often use fairly simple (on the surface anyway) stories of children to get a much deeper and more important political story across.

I haven't. But I know from cinema from other country and even our own, that the artform more often than not a reflection of the time period/society of that culture at the time.

But clearly, discussing the artform is not an endorsement of the creators or the leaders of the country that the work happens to come from. That would be very narrowminded, no?

Craig can you add a political messageboard for 2008.
"Zac is sweet as can be. He's very much just a sweet kid from California who happens to have a face that looks like it was drawn by Michelangelo, (if Michelangelo did anime)."

"I haven't left this building since Windows 3.1!"

"Celebrating a birthday this week: Rene Descartes is 412! Do you know who he is? Then why are you watching this show? You could probably get into college and even get one of those job things. As for the rest of us; Amanda Bynes is 22! Yay!"

I saw a movie at an Iranian Film Festival a couple of years ago and I can not remember the name of it, for the life of me. It was a very funny light comedy about a woman and her friend that was basically "Lucy and Ethel Go to Tehran." One woman's husband was a bumbling low-level government bureaucrat and she and her friend did a lot of hilarious running around behind-the-scenes, trying to avoid detection in places where women were not "supposed to be."

Very funny, and very subversive commentary on the repressive government as well as the subjugation of women in Iran.

You're really big on the banning requests, aren't you Liverpool? Maybe you'd make a good member of the repressive Iranian government.

Anybody else around have a taste for Iranian cinema?

Iranian caviar, perhaps?

I love the art that grows up in countries with opressive (some might say tyrannical) leadership. It seems that the farther the society goes to criminalize thought, the more it flourishes. Perhpas HD is just attempting to jump start our creativity?
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Yeah, I honestly think you'd advocate violence towards a Democart over a known terrorist HD! Thats how crazy I think you are. Its 'your kind' thats doing more harm to this country HD. You and your president who's driving a wedge between Americans. Your hate is disgusting. You are despised on these boards, yet you still come back. You waste all this time posting on a baord where your hated and you know your getting through to no one yet you still post anyway. What kind of nut does that? Your against gays and liberals and jews yet you spend all your time on a Broadway Message board. Why not devote all your energy towards something that has some purpose in your shallow life? You could be plotting abortion clinic attacks HD with your buddies at Freerepublic.

Um, your not serious. You can;t be. So, you post some nasty stuff. Craig dletes it because its so hateful and mean. So, because its been deleted you feel you can erase the fact you ever said it? HD, you have said many things ion this board that have just been mean. You refer to Hillary as Hitlery. you praise Rush,Coulter, and Dr.Laura all who have made similar statements. You supports a party who advacates violence towards gays and you support a war crimminal president and you see nothing hateful about any of that? Your sick and beyond help you sick FU*K!

So HD, it's alright for America to have nuclear weapons, just no other country! The only country to have ever used a nuke is yours, thats a very scary thought don't you think?

And it would seem that a country that belives it's the most powerful on earth, is run by a group of people willing to send it's young men and woman to death, over a self inflated belief that it can never be wrong. Blow em up and pocket the oil!

There are people in this world who belive that Americans are governed by a terrorist regime run by a very evil man, followed blindly with patriotic fervour....hmmm that's a scenario often repeated and never ever good for anyone.
