  • August 22nd Significance?

    I keep hearing about the significance of the 22nd being a very important day within Islam historically. The harbringers of doom speak to Iran choosing the 22nd strategically as the date to tell the world about it's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Iran is basically pushing ahead with it, but is anyone else hearing that this date may be one in which Iran makes a move?

    I have read and heard different things on it and want to see what others have seen or heard.

    Iran has pretty much already told the world about its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

      Yea they did. However, the date supposedly holds some significance and is thought to be a potential day for an attack. It is thought that might have been the day that the airlines would have been attacked from britain to the US and I have heard some say expect either higher terrorist activity up to and including potential moves from a larger country (Syria or Iran).

        The 22nd is here. Iran captured a romanian oil rig in Iranian waters. Iran also delivered their response to the UN Security Council and Germany (the so-called P-5+Germany) incentives package. Although details of the response remain secret, you can bet that uranium enrichment isn't about to be given up by the Iranians.

          Glad it was nothing more than that.

            I'm a little concerned that Iranian military members fired on citizens of a NATO country today and it's not making bigger headlines.

              Where did you read about that? You'd figure that would be bigger news (although could be played down to avoid throwing more gas on the fire).

                Well, the AP story was featured briefly on cnn.com today, but I can't find a link to it on any of main pages; I only know about it because someone else provided me with the link.

                  The networks can't bother with it this week. Didn't you hear? They caught a creepy pervert in a ten-year old murder case no one cares about!

                    There was also a russian jet that crashed - ~170 fatalities - with a similar chunk of coverage. Luckily, I always have my America: The Calendar "Determining Newsworthiness" chart. It reads:

                    Renegade moose in yard < septuplets! < renegade truck on fire < conjoined babies < new disease outbreak (Africa < rest of world) < war! < disgruntled man with gun < baby breifly imperiled by celebrity.

                    I'm guessing both the jet crash and the oil rig capture rate below coinjoined babies, but above renegade truck on fire.
