1. Sounds like "Saddam baby incubator" propagnnda bullshit to me

Our "friends" in Saudi Arabia lob off heads and hands all day long. No one seems to care about that.

6. No no!

Please leave it up for exposure. Just pointing out the irony.

ETA:
I think most in this country have already forgotten the lies and bullshit propaganda they fell for in supporting the invasion of Iraq. I think we need to stay on top of the propaganda as certain people try to fool us once again into attacking another country.
I trust the people of Iran to be good people that love America and they want a change as well. We need to support them and fight the people that want to bomb them.

11. I think by unveiling it, means.. they made a very public showing of it

to frighten others, and to keep them from protesting the upcoming election.

That's what the article said anyhow.

If it's an untrue story meant to rile up distrust and anger towards Iran and march us to war, then I will delete this.

If it's true, I see no problem posting it. I haven't seen anywhere that it is not a factual story.

However, if it is false, please let me know and I will delete the post, right away. I'm not all knowing...

14. Please don't delete it

We need to expose it and stay on top of the propaganda. The Iraq lies are already a distant memory. We need to be reminded of how they fool us into backing their wars and hating an entire country of people.

7. Let's isolate Iran even more.

The more we embargo, freeze-out, and provoke Iran, the harder the hard-line becomes. Now that's the ticket . . . if you want a war.

8. cutting off other things for adultery

lol. I imagine the reason being is that it is the rich who would get caught committing adultery while it is the poor who would have to steal. I wonder how much of the theft is for basic needs?


I'm sure the republicans are eying this machine now.lol

12. A "finger amputating machine"?????

For god sake look at the photo. See that diagonal rod that connects up on the main shaft? That's a clutch actuating rod that engages the power from the electric motor to the main shaft. In ANY normal machine it connects at the bottom to a foot treadle type switch. Do you think they make the thief start his own amputation? Check out the main bearing casting-looks a little over-sturdy for a job easily accomplished with poultry shears, no??? Notice the die and platen on the actuator arm. I believe what you are looking at is an evil Islamic trim press similar to those found in thousands of small metal working shops world wide. Now I have personally seen these devices take fingers in the United States and have little doubt it can be used for that. But this photo looks much more like propaganda nonsense for the masses.

15. By unveiling, it is meant they made a very public showing of it.

Letting people know they will use it.

Anyone can tell it's an old machine that one may find in some machine shop.

What exactly do you mean by propaganda.. That the story is completely false? If so, please show me that it is and I will delete this. I don't want to perpetuate false stories.

Or do you mean Iran is using it as propaganda tool to frighten it's people prior to an election, like the article states?

18. They may have...

I'm just pointing out it is a run of the mill, machine tool and that as such it can of course maim or mangle an operator. And that to believe it is SPECIFICALLY a "finger amputating machine" is naive.

20. I'll delete, if you say so. I have no dog in this hunt.

I don't doubt they cut off peoples fingers or flog them.

But I gotta run out and I don't want to be responsible for a flame war...

But would appreciate it if you could tell me if the story is false.
