Iran Launches Satellite and Rocket: What's Next

By Maggie M. Thornton

As Germany, the U.S., Britain, China, France and Russia meet in Germany this week to brainstorm scuttling Iran's nuclear goals, Iran sent them a shot across the bow. They launched a Safir-2 rocket with satellite, successfully, into space. The Heritage Foundation tells us only ten countries have done so to date. Perhaps we are ambivalent about this acheivement, but it is time to wake up and smell the saffron.

The range of a Safir-2 is estimated to be 1500 miles - long enough to reach Egypt, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. No need to feel secure though, because Iran has a more powerful and longer range missile already in it's arsenal - the Shahab-3.

Iran's launch yesterday showed the bottoms of their soul-less shoes to the free world - just as the thwarting of U.N. resolutions have done.

Do we think Iran has no interest in a nuclear-laden ICBMs with a bulls-eye set on America?

Quoting President Obama (read the entire transcript and see the video here):
I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems.
I will not weaponize space.
I will slow our development of future combat systems.

I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons.
To seek that goal, I will not develop new nuclear weapons.

I will negotiate with Russian to take our ICBM's off air-trigger alert,...
Read how Europe is reporting Obama's plans today.

  1. And when Iran does launch a nuke and Obama does nothing can we then lynch his ass?

  2. Thank you for sharing this video. I add a personal note. I worked for General Trey Obering awhile back and he was considered a brillant man in his field. He was our General when 911 happened. We were all gathered in his office watching as so many others did at the aftermath of the planes hitting the Trade Center. When they began reporting that another plane had hit the Pentagon, he ordered all of us out of the building and not just like a fire drill, but home and stay there until contacted. I have great respect for this man's abilities and his leadership and his work ethic.

  3. Obama´s plan is the same as disarming the West which makes it easier for islamists to conquer it.

    Is Obama an apostate?
