Those Missiles in Poland and the Czech Republic that Obama Gave Up Would Sure Be Nice to Have About NowTopics: Iran, Political News and commentaries
That missile system that the U.S. needed to defend against a possible Iranian missile attack, given up by Barack Obama, would be nice to have now, especially since there's the really scary news that Iran successfully tested their Sajjil-2 yesterday (a two-stage solid fuel missile) that represents a giant leap toward having the capability to reach the continental United States:
The Sajjil-2 which is designed to be a weapon payload carrier, not a peaceful space rocket, uses the same kind of solid fuel technology that the United States uses in the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. That means that they can be perfectly accurate, like the Minuteman III is. But more importantly, these missiles can be safely stored and launched with no preparation or warning. Click the big red button, and the birds are on their way one second later.
The new Iranian missile is only a two-stage rocket. That means that they can launch one right now to Israel or Europe, with no warning whatsoever. It also means that, if they add a third stage, they would be able to use these missiles to reach any part of the world, from San Francisco, California, to London, United Kingdom, to New York, New York, that little town blue.
Yep, nothing like having a president that looks out more for our enemies than our country. Yet, that's the expected result of a president that risks the security of his country on the neo-liberal concept of "soft power," (try not to be taken-back by the name of the site - the authors are Black) which Americans should have known was a crock of crap when Obama sold it to them in the election campaign.
