I haven't posted in awhile, and on the way to grab some lunch I slipped and fell on the stairs, catching myself with my right arm, which now hurts. So, in honor of that, and not having any news I am ready to report quite yet on the house, I thought I'd just get out my bandwagon joining post wondering if anything "Interesting" will happen tomorrow... which starts in just under 3.5 hours UTC wise, but which started 6 minutes ago in Iran...
For those who have no idea what I am talking about, see articles like this. Basically August 22nd is an important date related to a final judgement of sorts on the Islamic Calendar this year, and because the Iranian president said he would give his answer to UN ultimatums by the 22nd. Because of those two things a bunch of people have been speculating that Iran will do something "big" on the 22nd. Which it now is in Iran, and will be soon in places West of Iran.
Or, it could be nothing at all other than a bunch of folks getting excited about a date.
But if it were real, what could it be? Lets speculate a bit...
#1) Iran launches a full scale invasion of Iraq
#2) Iran starts shooting missles at Isreal
#3) Iran openly tests a nuclear weapon
#4) Big terrorist attack somewhere not clearly linked to Iran, but implied
#5) This is when the blowing planes up thing was supposed to happen
#6) Big party at President Ahmadinejad's house!
I'm going for option 6, because all the other's make me sick to my stomach.
It is now 03:05 UTC, which is 6:35 AM in Tehran. Nothing yet as far as I can tell by a quick scan of news sites.
Other than Iran announcing they would continue and expand their nuclear program, which while somewhat provocative, was completely expected for months.
Well, overnight they did attack Romania.
