Bomb Iran Now


New York (CNN) -- The federal government said Thursday it is seeking forfeiture of properties belonging to the Alavi Foundation and Assa Corp. -- accused of transferring money to a bank owned by the Iranian government -- including a Manhattan skyscraper and at least three mosques.
Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced Thursday's filing of an amended civil complaint seeking forfeiture of the Alavi Foundation's interest in the 36-story office tower located on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.
The building is owned by 650 Fifth Avenue Company, a partnership between the Alavi Foundation and Assa Corp., the Justice Department said in a news release. The amended complaint alleges that the Alavi Foundation provided services to the Iranian government and transferred money from 650 Fifth Avenue Company to Bank Melli, which is owned and controlled by the government of Iran.
The amended complaint seeks forfeiture of all assets of the Alavi Foundation and Assa Corp., including bank accounts owned by 650 Fifth Avenue Company, the Alavi Foundation and Assa Corp.; and properties owned by the foundation in New York, Maryland, Virginia, Texas and California.
It alleges that the properties were "involved in and [were] the proceeds of money laundering offenses," and that the owners violated the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, executive orders and U.S. Department of Treasury regulations.
"As today's complaint alleges in great detail, the Alavi Foundation has effectively been a front for the government of Iran," Bharaha said. "For two decades, the Alavi Foundation's affairs have been directed by various Iranian officials, including Iranian ambassadors to the United Nations, in violation of a series of American laws. The Alavi Foundation's former president remains under investigation for alleged obstruction of justice, and both the criminal and civil investigations are ongoing."
Calls to a lawyer representing the Alavi Foundation were not immediately returned.
Relations between Iran and much of the international community have been tense over Iran's nuclear ambitions. Iran has said it wants to develop its nuclear program solely for peaceful purposes; the United States and a number of other countries have said they suspect the oil-rich nation is pursuing a nuclear bomb.
In another U.S.-Iran development, President Obama said Thursday in a letter to Congress that the national emergency with respect to Iran that was declared in 1979 during the Iranian revolution has not ended.

Enough is enough. Take the mosques. Take the skyscraper too. No more "talks". Bomb Iran.

Evil? A bit of a stretch don't you think?
The first step toward war is to demonize the enemy. This gives the public reason to support the slaughter, and it gives Soldiers reason to kill without hesitation. Simple war tactics. Everyone knows this.

The obama administration has also made public what they think about The Iran weapons seizure last week. The seizure of these assets are akin to Irans mydogisjogin getting a spanking from Obama.

I'm not in the "bomb Iran" frame of mind, but if an organization is illegally funneling money to another nation it can expect to be shut down. If it's Mosques or macaroni that's the front, it doesn't matter.

Religion of peace. Glad they got them. Many of these mosques are breeding/recruiting grounds for the enemy.

As if there aren't simply tons and tons of christian churches in the U.S. that whip up hatred against various other groups, not just muslims but gays, feminists, liberals, whathaveyou.

Stones and glass houses and all of that.

So if you're serious about dealing with religion-inspired hatred, let's shut 'em ALL down, alrighty?

How many of them are funneling money and actively preaching to help in killing Americans?

BIG difference there. Don't pretend that there isn't.

You can't bomb Iran, because in general, the people are good. The proper strategy is to take out the religous fucks that rule Iran. Same with Afghanistan, and while I know we bombed Iraq, and Saddam wasn't that religous, what we did there was perfect; take out the Government.

We dont need to do anything, other than deliver the new bombs that the Pentagon just put a rush on. We will let Israel handle the rest.

Don't use "everyone knows this" when you are not ironic, it fucks with my mind.

Thank you for your cooperation.

If you lived in Iran and saw all the people next door the Americans bombed to death who were not "government" you would have trouble seeing your own government as evil

If you were taught anything about the Americans involvement in the Iran-Iraq war then you have problems seeing who was evil and who wasn't

No, but that's beside the point. Which Churches are illegally sending money to other countries? I'd be keen to see your evidence because they certainly ought to be busted too.

What about the Keyboard Generals here that want to war..

I remember I used to ask every once in a while using a poll...
How many US citizens has Iraq killed?
How many times has Iraq attacked US soil?

^^ Just left them befuddled.. but they still wanted to kill Iraqis
