Iran Launches New Missile
Iran once again is trying to flex some muscle and intimidate the international community amid increased pressure about its enriched uranium program.
Friday the Iranian military announced that is has successfully test-fired a domestically produced missile that can avoid radar and hit several targets simultaneously.
" Today, a remarkable goal of the Islamic Republic of Iran's defense forces was realized with the successful test-firing of a new missile with greater technical and tactical capabilities than those previously produced," said Gen. Hossein Salami, the air force chief of the elite Revolutionary Guards.
" This technology is completely new, without copying any other missile systems that may exist in other countries," Salami said, adding that the missile could carry multiple warheads. " This missile can evade radar and it can evade anti-missile missiles," he said.
With our troops fighting in Iraq right next door and the ever increasing proof that Iran is supplying the Terrorist we are fighting, it is time we show some muscle. Israel is even in more danger now with this threat now from these missiles.
" This news causes much concern, and that concern is shared by many countries in the international community, about Iran's aggressive nuclear weapons program and her parallel efforts to develop delivery systems, both in the field of ballistic missiles and cruise missiles," said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev.
" The combination of extremist jihadist ideology, together with nuclear weapons and delivery systems, is a combination that no one in the international community can be complacent about," said Regev.
If the president of Iran is looking to push his country closer to war with us, all he has to do is threaten us or our allies and he will have the death he can handle. It will not matter what France or Germany say or how much others whine, we will protect ourselves.
