Iran may have atom bomb-bearing missile
The Washington Times ^ | November 19, 2004 | Washington Times

Washington, DC, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. intelligence officials are evaluating worrisome new information about an Iranian missile purportedly capable of carrying an atomic bomb.

Time for Israel to get busy!

The EU hates the US and Israel and is helping Iran stall so that they get a weapon. I think they believe that they need to shift the balance of power to their side and that can be accomplished by putting US in its place. I'm not saying they--EU--want to see the US fall, but they would like us to fail so they can say "I told you so".

Why else would they issue all sorts of comments about how it force is out of the question and so on. They are trying to tie the hands of the US and allow IRAN to develop its bomb so that the US does not have too much power over the oil reserves of the world.

Let's face it, if we are able to get Iraq on the right track, we will have a friend that has lots of oil. Same with Iran. What if democracy was able to win over the terrorist gov. of Iran? Again, another US style democracy as the #2 producer of oil, second to Saudi Arabia? Wow. The french would not be very happy now would they?

New York? More time to develop nukes and missiles?
I, and the EU, are your slaves and dhimmis and will serve you."

If it's a missile, the atomic part would be called a warhead not a bomb.

Iran, you have 2 minutes before we start bombing. Sounds something like the Gipper would say. In this case, he would be right and not joking.

Thats just not going to happen. If they have a delivery system, it certainly is not at the range of an ICBM (capable of hitting the U.S. mainland); it would be shorter range...capable of hitting Israel. I say let the Israelis take them out and get some bang for the buck on all the U.S. dollars we send them.

"may" have?

C'mon ... there's no need for this kind of uncertainty. Let's just ask either our Most Favored Friend China (who just inked a billion dollar energy deal with Iran) or our Partner in the War on Terror (who outfitted Iran's Bushehr nuclear plant) what Iran's got up its sleeve.

If anyone knows Iran's military and technological capabilities for sure, someone I suspect these two do.

Well, if missiles carrying nukes is really what they want, than that is what they really should expect to recieve.

Although France, Germany and France’s actions may often lead one to believe this, it would not be their interest anymore than ours for Iran to have a nuclear tipped missile.

France and Germany are much closer to Iran than we.

I really doubt that they believe their liberal politics would protect them from the hard-line Imams in Iran if they had nuclear weapons.

So long Tel Aviv! One wonders if the disappearance of the NK leaders pictures has anything to do with not making it any easier to track him down. Hmmmm... I wonder if he has reason to expect there will soon be enemy troops in his nation trying to find him. Into the spider hole he goes!

There is only one sane thing to do when you find a nuke missile in the hands of these animals:

Blow them into the smoking talons of Beelzallah before they have the chance to use it!

Well, I didn't see them say the missle was "tipped", so maybe they built a missile, with a special compartment they can load an a-bomb into. Now, they just have to figure out how to detonate it...

Look hard enough and you are going to find several sets of fingerprints on any said missile and/or bomb. I would suggest, North Korea, Red China, the Soviets (right, right, Russia if you wish, I still say the Soviet Union because a former KGB agent is running the country now), France, possibly Germany, possibly Pakistan and/or India, and even a couple of other old Soviet satellite states.

That's it. Problem solved by brainstorm. I would hate to be the guy who lights the fuse on the missile. I bet it takes a huge Coke bottle to launch from.

let israel go in there and deal with it. we have our hands tied right now with iraq, afghanistan, and maintaining things over by Taiwan w/China, and not to forget NK.
Israel can crush iran in a few days if they took the offensive, if this can be proven.

Some people would take your comment and tell you to put a tin foil hat on, however I wouldn't. I believe the EU and Russia to be the "beast" that Revelations speaks of in the bible. Revelations says that 10 countries team up and they are all represented by animals that are current EU countries and Russia such as "feet of a bear, shoulders of a leapord, head of a lion". Their actions of retreating from their Judo-Christian culture into a very secular group is scary. After all, Europe was what held back the muslim hoards many centuries ago. This time in this spiritual/physical fight, Europe is siding with the muslims. Revelations speaks of the beast as having one goal and that is to destroy the harlot that "sits on top of her". The description of the harlot is eerily reminiscient of Lady Libert adorned in purple and scarlet.

Revelations says that these ten countries lend their power for one hour and destroy the harlot and then the alliance itself goes off into destruction. History has not yet verified all of these prophecies in Revelations but it sure looks like the players are all taking the stage.

For those who want to discuss with me as a point of interest, email me.

Take a letter to Iran:

Sirs,
We have mapped all your major cities and military sites and have locked their coordinates into our targeting computers. Any attack launched against Israel will be considered an attack on the United States, requiring a full retaliatory strike.
Those whose treachery has enabled this development will be held responsible for any damage to Israel and Iran due to any conflict that may result.

Fox is reporting that Iran has 'til Monday to comply with their European agreement vis a vis developing nukes, so they've been working night and day to produce nuclear 'gas', a necessary component or some such thing. We need to do something asap.

and

" an Iranian missile purportedly capable of carrying an atomic bomb."

The new missiles range brings parts of the EU and all of Iraq into range. If Iran wanted to stop the US from invading Iran, the ONLY way they could stop us is nuke us in Iraq.

I am reminded of the media coverage before the 2nd part of the Iraq War.
They were screaming about Iraq’s WMD and calling for action. Action was taken and our “esteemed” news media immediately started harping about none being found, and that President Bush somehow intentionally lied to the American People.
Will this be a repeat?
