U.S. Announces Long-Range Anti-Missile Target Practice Amid Strait Of Hormuz Row With Iran
Gotta love that Baghdad Bob-speak. BTW, what is the airspeed velocity of a sparrow in a dinosaur body?
It would be interesting if Israel shot it down.
Oh goody, the Fifth Fleet gets to play with some target practice!
AND “a sparrow in the body of a dinosaur.”
Is that a allegory for “Obama in the White House”?
you got it
Test all the missiles you want to Iran, just be careful they don’t hit anything.
THAT could be a big mistake.
Should there be a military confrontation between the US and iranian forces, would that be a key in getting “The One” re-elected??????
What do you mean..African or European variety?
“high degree of the Iranian revolution,” /
Sounds a bit like a nuclear threat. High degree......
I’ve never seen a dinosaur turned to glass before. That would be something new. Little people using big words. They had better be very careful or they might be investing in glass parking lots with no cars to park in them.
“Gotta love that Baghdad Bob-speak. BTW, what is the airspeed velocity of a sparrow in a dinosaur body?”
European or African?
That is the proper response. Shoot it out of the sky and thank the Iranians for the target.
Don’t ask questions if you want to cross the bridge.
Uh, this one would be Asian :)
Because "tests" never go awry, everything will work exactly as planned. ;-/
Of course it is not really a "test" because that would be stupid. This is political/power posturing, maybe looking for an excuse to start something.
