I’m going to run the latest NHC forcast track map in place of the DoD images until it appears that this storm is not a concern. All updates will occur in this post on Blogs of War Offtopic. Gulf Coast residents should start paying close attention to this storm.
Via the IRNA:
An informed source with Iran’s Supreme National Security Council said Tuesday that Iran’s response to the proposed package of Group 5+1 will be presented in matter of hours.
The source told IRNA that ambassadors of Germany, France, Britain, Russia, China and Switzerland will receive Iran’s response.
The sources further said Ali Larijani, secretary of the council, will deliver the answer.
Update: The response has been delivered. No details have emerged.

On August 15th 2004, a 16-year-old girl was hanged in a public square in Neka, Iran, a small industrial town by the Caspian Sea. Her death sentence was for crimes against chastity. Her name was Atefah Sahaaleh. The only evidence against Atefah was her own forced confession. Atefah railed against her judge in court for its unfairness, but this was her undoing. Judge Haji Rezai, who was also the local mullah, prosecutor and head of the city administration, personally obtained permission from Iran’s Supreme Court to execute her, and put the noose around her neck himself before she was hoisted on a crane jib arm to her death. Using undercover footage, eyewitness accounts and drama recontruction, this film tells an unforgettable story of the life and tragic death of an ordinary teenage girl under Iran’s mullahs.
So, that’s it then. We would like to thank our readers for their many emailed comments, flames, and death threats. We’ve certainly enjoyed our years of keeping you informed and entertained, but all good things must come to an end.
On the bright side, there’s no better time for saying goodbye to the world than just as the mainstream press is gearing up to inundate us with speculation regarding the death of JonBenet Ramsey, from broadcast locations in Boulder, Colorado. That we will be spared Greta Van Susteren’s daily musings about what might or might not have happened, surely, must prove the existence of a loving and merciful God.
And so we prepare to meet Him with joy and gratitude.
