  1. Price : $600 Condition : Used Hi guys, For sale is a set of 17 inch SSR Type C rims, they came with my evo 8 from Japan, that car is now sold and these are up for sale too, I never put them back on after getting stock wheels for compliance. They have snow tyres, useless in Australia, so you'll need new tyres. All rims have a bit of minor rash. These are super light weight wheels and look good too, great for the track. Not sure of off-set. I'm after $600 bucks. SPECS: 17 x 8.0 +30 5/114.3 Pics below. Contact me via PM or on 0404 723 623. Prefer pick up in Melbourne, but will send interstate at buyer's expense. Thanks, Ali.
  2. Thanks guys, someone has helped me out.
  3. Hey guys, I need to borrow stock rims for an s15 with tyres for RWC, for about 1/2 a day tops. Prefer Western Suburbs, but not fussed. Cash or Beer for your troubles. Also if someone is selling a cheap set with tyres, I could buy them too. Thanks, Ali Reply here, PM or my number is 0404 723 623
  4. I am Anti-US. Corrupt pro US governments exist, I don't see the issue. This is the interwebz, I am no more or less credible than yourself good sir (nor do i feel a need to try and undermine you. )
  5. I'm sorry, I don't see Iran trying to mobilise military action against Israel, the opposite is true. Israel sees Iran as a threat, therefore, Israel is enemies with Iran and vice versa. Further, Iran is not an Arab country, Iranians are Persians, they have a distinct language and culture from the Arabs. Further again, Iran is not an Anti-Semitic country, simply, Anti-Zionist, note the key difference. There are 75,000 Jews in Iran who are prospering and are treated with equal rights. You really need to look into the situation deeply and not simply regurgitate arguments that are propagated by the biased media. So you're arguing semitics now? Anti-Zionist then. They're anti-Israel and not anti-Jews in general. Although I'm sure you'd find that in Iran, like most Islamic nations the general population is anti-semitic. http://www.state.gov/g/drl/rls/irf/2006/71421.htm And the highest estimates I've been able to find for the number of Jews in Iran are 30,000-10,000 or about 0.04%. Although it was considerably higher before most of them emigrated to the US or Israel following the Iranian Revolution. The more you keep talking about biased media the more it makes you sound like a conspiracy theorist. Don't go down that path. Yes they are Anti-Israel, you cannot say Anti-Semitic because being an Anti-Zionist does not make you an Anti-Semitic. Muslims are against Zionism, not Judaism, note the fundamental difference. Are these chaps Anti-Semitic also? Further, there will always be some intolerance towards a population in any country, this doesn't mean it is mainstream. "however, members of these recognized minority religious groups have reported imprisonment, harassment, intimidation, and discrimination based on their religious beliefs" This line could be applied to pretty much any country. Muslims in the US could say the same.....more recently, Indians in Melbourne could make this argument. My point is, of course there are always social issues, doesn't mean it is the social norm. Generally speaking, the Jews in Iran are happy. The figures vary, Iranian sources indicate it to be at 75,000.....the highest Western source i have seen is around 40,000. The media is biased, you are blind if you cannot see it.
  6. No, the UN is a joke, international law is based on mere conjecture and is largely unenforceable. The UN also opposes Israeli expansions (the US does not.) Notice how Israel are free to act? The US acts to protect its interests, clearly, a Nuclear Iran/NK presents a threat. A nuclear Israel on the other hand is seen as a positive. Blatant double standards. So again, it is good to see Iran and North Korea off-setting the current balance of power in a new direction. So a theocracy guided by a book with passages such as "Fight those who believe not in Allah or the Last Day" and a third world nation ruled by a family with an inferiority complex are trying to get their hands on nuclear weapons. No problem there at all. lol, ignorance is bliss. Quoting religious scriptures out of context merely elucidates your lack of knowledge regarding the Iranian regime. Further, your logic is flawed, Pakistan is also an Islamic country (and already in possession of nuclear weapons.) We aren't dead are we? You fear, because you are taught to fear, you do not know why. A little research will reveal to you that Iran at least, is no real threat (despite what the pro-Israeli media will have you believe.) Caustic pointed out in his initial post that Iran was a theocracy, Pakistan is not. And Pakistan developed Nuclear Weapons because India had them. If Iran gets nuclear weapons it will start an arms race in the region. A region that, historically is the most unstable place on the planet. With several governments rising and falling every century. So you have a mix of nuclear weapons, regional instability and a grudge against the west. Not a good thing. I'm sorry an arms race with whom exactly? Israel? (They already have nukes) Saudi Arabia? (US controlled) Turkey? (US controlled) Syria? (Iranian ally) Pakistan? (Already have nukes, Iranian ally) Please elaborate on this imaginary arms race that will ensue. In my opinion a nuclear Iran will result in a balance of power between Israel and Iran in the middle east. Jordan and Egypt have nuclear reactors going up by 2012. Libya, Turkey, Tunisia will have thiers up close to 2020 and Algeria has had a few since the mid 90's. This has nothing to do with a balance of power in the middle east, this is not an anti-muslim thing or arab (especially as iran ain't an arab nation) thing either. This is about extending the influence of Iran, the country voted most unpopular in the middle east. A country with 1-2 thousand years of conquest & war tucked under its belt, that has lived the last few hundred years under the thumb of other powers and nolonger want to be the regions doormat. Iran wants the bomb to extend its influence in the region, something a Sunni dominant middle east will not allow to happen. Its the reason why NOBODY in the middle east, and the rest of the world wants Iran to be a nuclear power. They will not bring a balance of power, they will destabalise the region. The fact that you said that they will bring a balance of power is just further evidence that they will bring ruin. How exactly did you think they will bring a power balance? You think Iran will say "hey stop picking on palestine or we will nuke ya?". Do you think Israel will be cowed by that? f**k no. Israel will need to take aggressive action to show they are not intimidated, which could be anything from attacking Lebanon/Palestine to a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran. The percieved need for the Jewish state to show aggression is most evident in the activities of the Mossad. Even if you think that somehow Iran gets the drop on Israel and glasses them first, you have to remember Israel, just as with every other nuclear powered country in the world, believes in mutually assured destruction. And unlike Iran they have the capability (airforce, submarines etc etc) to actually see it through. Then you have muslim politics that come into play, Sunni VS Shiites. Iran builds the bomb. Jordan and Egypt and just about everyone else in the region who will have nuclear power by that time almost certainly will too. ARMS RACE. This is not a hypothetical, its cause and effect. And to address some of you misconceptions: Turkey is not US controlled, thier actions are guided by thier desire to join the EU. Pakistan is a US ally, not Iran. There has been Shia-Sunni tension that has pushed the relations between the two countries apart for the last 20 years, made all the worse during the Afghan civil war. Thier is existing trade relations though, is that what you where referring too? Jordan and Egypt etc are Pro-Israeli/US puppets, they are no threat and will not develop nuclear weapons, I'm surprised you raise this argument, because it is truly fallacious even as a hypothetical. Even if Iran goes nuclear, they will not respond given US pressure. You say Iran was voted the most unpopular in the middle east? This does not seem right, having traveled throughout the Middle East myself (I have relatives everywhere!) Ahmadinejad is actually the most revered leader in the Middle East, according to recent polls in Lebanon and Egypt. He is very popular in Pakistan as well (although that technically isn't the middle east.) True, Iran is extending its influence, but this is for the balance of power, Saudi/US alliance vs Iran/Syria and its subordinates (i.e HizbAllah, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, to an extent Iraq etc.) In terms of the Sunni-Shia Middle East issue, you will find that Iran has managed to transcend this divide. Hamas and MB are Iranian backed Sunni movements. They recognise that the Saudis/Egyptians are nothing but corrupt US puppets, accordingly, they vent their rage against the US/Israel/West via Iran. The voice of the people is strongly pro Iran (although the Governments are obviously pro US.) Iran is the only country that backs the movements against Israel in Lebanon/Palestine etc, while at the same time, the Egyptians for example, shoot Palestinians who try and cross at Rafah. Thus, i reiterate, a nuclear armed Iran will not bring ruin, it will help maintain stability and prevent Israeli expansions (which the entire Middle East fears.) Iran enjoys good support where it counts and have out played the Saudi/US/Israeli alliance. Regarding an attack on Iran, Israel cannot manage on its own. Logistically it is too difficult, it needs US backing. Iran is well on its way to becoming a nuclear power, Israel has tried its best to prevent this, but failed without the US backing it needs (and the backing the US cannot afford to give, given the multitude of war fronts currently in operation.) Apparent misconceptions: Turkey is US controlled, they share military contracts with Israel and the US and are not independent from decisions, particularly the development of Nuclear weapons. EU inclusion does not contravene US interests, you will find that the EU/US work hand in hand. Trade between the countries is strong but I was not referring to this point. Pakistan, is pro-Iran as we speak, but it depends on the political climate. There is no secterian tension between the countries (such as that which exists with Iran/Saudi.) Pakistan has always had a soft spot for Iran, it has a large Shia population, was founded by a Shia and has largely been governed by Shias. The current President (Zardari) is Shia, his deceased wife Bhutto, was half Iranian and Shia. True, they are technically a US ally as well, but it was Pakistan that gave its nuclear secrets to Iran, if that doesn't make Pakistan an ally then I don't know what does! You will find Pakistan as it stands, is Pro-Nuclear Iran, else they wouldn't have helped the process in the first place.

In my opinion a nuclear Iran will result in a balance of power between Israel and Iran in the middle east. Hey wait we should all have nukes. A world where everybody holds the power to destroy whole cities with the press of a button is a happy world. A stand off where everybody's threatening to launch missiles is not a successful outcome. Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty remember, producing nukes would be in violation of that. Sure, Israel probably shouldn't have them, but just because the do doesn't mean everybody else should. Well, given that Israel is Iran's biggest enemy, it doesn't hurt to have a balance. Operations are well under way, it is only a matter of time. Further, Nuclear Non-Proliferation is a joke, the entire concept is laden with double standards. Either everybody should be entitled to nukes, or nobody should be entitled to them. For the US to dictate terms based on its allies is hypocritical, accordingly, I see it fit for other countries to compete, this way we will continue to see the US lose its grip of the world, seeing it collapse further both internally and internationally as well.

  11. I used to have a similar problem. Went away on its own. But you should check with a Dr just to be sure you don't have some form of nerve damage.

  13. It is quite unlikely that this situation will escalate. Given that the US is struggling in both Iraq/Afghanistan, another front is not feasbile given the current poor economic state the Americans currently find themselves in. I say good on North Korea who are the USA to dictate the terms of nuclear proliferation. They condemn North Korea and Iran while simultaneously ignoring Israel. Good to see neither state fears the embattled USA, a former superpower at best.
  14. Sissy boys tread

    Nothing really works, take it from me, I have 3 years of stretch marks. Fresh ones will go red/pink. Older ones will turn white. They don't really ever go away. Who cares really? Meh.
  15. Sharp pain in the upper chest

    Mate I had the EXACT same problem for a bit, in the same spot. Not sure what it was, but it went away in about 1 week. It meant I couldn't go heavy on those exercises you mentioned, as well as military press....but doing bench was fine. I did not stop training however. Perhaps cessation of training would result in a quicker recovery.
