USA still favours diplomatic approach on Iran

According to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino (pix), President Bush believes the Iran nuclear issue can be solved diplomatically and the allies of United States including Israel favour the same approach. However, there is no sign that the military option has been ruled out entirely or foreclosed permanently by the US and its allies like Israel.

That's because Bush knows that his time is running out. Otherwise, it would be a disaster and a tragedy again!

For statements involving the foreign press, Iran's spokesman is usually Gholam-Hossein Elham. Speaks fluent English, knowledgeable, likely a highly qualified guy, don't know his background.

But Dana Perino is a lot prettier...kekekek...actually the photo you posted is not one of her better shots. In the middle of a serious discussion, I guess.

On TV, she looks more like a film star or top model. Quite impressive qualifications, too.

Maybe I'm a bit sexist, but I have a theory that senior female officials or executives shouldn't be too good looking...men end up looking at her rather than what she's trying to say.... hihihihihi...

Personality Disorder: The Disease Perspective

PTypes Personality Types proposes Cyclothymic Personality Disorder as a pervasive pattern of pronounced periodic changes in mood, behavior, thinking, sleep, and energy levels, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by seven (or more) of the following:

has depressive periods: depressed mood or loss of interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities and pastimes alternating with hypomanic periods: elevated, expansive, or irritable mood (American Psychiatric Association, 1980, pg. 220);

becomes excessively involved in pleasurable activities with lack of concern for the high potential of painful consequences alternating with restriction of involvement in pleasurable activities and guilt over past activities (pg. 220);

alternates between over-optimism or exaggeration of past achievement and a pessimistic attitude toward the future, or brooding about past events (pg. 220);

is more talkative than usual, with inappropriate laughing, joking, and punning: and, then, less talkative, with tearfulness or crying (pg. 220);

has a decreased need for sleep alternating with hypersomnia (Akiskal, Khani, and Scott-Strauss qtd. in Jamison, pg. 264); 1

has shaky self-esteem: naive grandiose overconfidence alternating with lack of self-confidence (pg. 264);

has periods of sharpened and creative thinking alternating with periods of mental confusion and apathy (pg. 264);

displays marked unevenness in the quantity and quality of productivity, often associated with unusual working hours (pg. 264);

engages in uninhibited people-seeking (that may lead to hyper-sexuality) alternating with introverted self-absorption (pg. 264);

frequently shifts line of work, study, interest, or future plans (pg. 264);

engages in occasional financial extravagance (pg. 264);

has a tendency toward promiscuity, with repeated conjugal or romantic failure (pg. 264);

may use alcohol or drugs to control moods or to augment excitement (pg. 264);

has irritable-angry-explosive outbursts that alienate loved ones (pg. 264);

makes frequent changes in residence or geographical location (Akiskal, 1995, pg. 1143).
