Iran has stated that the "Stuxnet" worm that has affected thousands of computers in Iran is a Western plot aimed at sabotaging Iran’s nuclear program.
"Western states are trying to stop Iran's [nuclear] activities by embarking on psychological warfare and aggrandizing, but Iran would by no means give up its rights by such measure,” according to a printed summary of comments made yesterday in Tehran by foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehrmanparast.
"Heavy metal is beautiful, and so are the people of Iran," shouted Neil Turbin, lead singer of Deathriders, before launching into another song at the Metal Revolution for Iran event at the Aura Nightclub in Studio City.
Bands included Internal Corrosion, Skinmask, Deathriders (featuring Neil Turbin of Anthrax) and Philm (featuring Dave Lombardo of Slayer).
It is that time of year again when Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad makes his trip to New York, making incendiary remarks that resonate around the globe.

Every Nov. 4, the Iranian regime buses tens of thousands of schoolchildren from around the country to Tehran to commemorate the assault on the U.S. Embassy in 1979, when 52 U.S. diplomats were taken hostage.
The embassy attack and the subsequent 444-day hostage crisis were called “a second revolution” by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, because they led to the collapse of the moderate post-revolutionary government that was seeking to repair ties with the United States and the West.
MPG sources inside Iran and abroad successfully identified a member of the IRGC Mafia. He played a key role in smuggling petroleum in and out of Iraq when it was under sanctions during Saddam Hussein’s reign. Also, he was a key player in IRGC's illegal procurements through front businesses. He has compiled vast wealth as a result.
The following is a small sample of corruption in the Islamic Republic regime, and the pillage and plunder of the country’s resources by government agents.
Show trials continued in Tehran today of hundreds of pro-democracy supporters arrested during the
demonstrations of the past month, as Ahmadinejad took the oath of office for the second time. Choosing Aug.5 for his swearing in date showed particular hubris, since it is the anniversary of the 1906 constitutional revolution, whose freedoms have been abolished by Ahmadinejad and his IRGC regime.
