White House: Iranian Ballistic Missile Test Not a Deal Killer
Free Beacon ^ | 12/11/13 | Adam Kredo

Posted on 12/11/2013 4:12:31 PM PST by Libloather

The White House says that an Iranian ballistic missile test would not invalidate a recently signed nuclear accord meant to temporarily halt some of Iran’s most controversial nuclear work.

The White House clarified its stance just days before Iran is scheduled to launch another ballistic missile some 75 miles into the atmosphere.

The statement contradicts recent remarks indicating that such a test would in fact violate and nullify the weeks-old agreement, which provides Iran with some $7 billion in relief from economic sanctions in exchange for a partial six-month freeze of its uranium enrichment program.

Israel is ready to eliminate the Iranian Islamonazi threat.
but it would be a whole lot better if USAF did it, as that would save tens of millions of lives.

incidentally, iran doesn’t need those missiles to attach its socalled Little Satan, it has other means of trying to do that given the relative proximity. The ICBMs under development and manufacture by the Iranian Islamonazis are most useful for attacking Iran’s number one target, its socalled Great Satan (USA). As the Iranian murderous thugs keep promising

In other news. The Obama White House says any Iranian nuclear weapon detonated on Israeli soil that is under 50 megatons is not a deal killer...

They wouldn't stand a chance in hell of lobbing anything at the U.S..

An ICBM launch out of the middle east would be detected and intercepted.

Targeting Israel would be a whole nother story. Israel knows full well the ramifications of a newkler tipped ICBM landing in it's territory, specifically Tel Aviv.

This will never happen while Netenyahu is at the helm.

I agree. In the end God wins. That however does not abosolve us of doing what we can to save our country. Maybe it’s just a little thing now and then that doesn’t seem to mean much. But then I think of it in the sense of hundreds of thousands or even millions of people doing such “little” things, and it does help to make me feel that much better.

But, please God. We so need Your help.

Not to worry.

An EMP pulse from a nuclear blast 75 miles high could only affect about half the United States. It would take one at about 280 miles height for the pulse to cover the entire country, so we are still "safe".

Everybody "Carry On", "Party Hearty", and keep workin' on that important Website, folks!

press reports have been consistent for several years that they and their friends have got many agents working in USA, including in high places in our govt, already...., and what with our open borders...

also while an icbm could possibly be shot down if launched from iran, yes, it or an even simper missile could also be launched from closer quarters, giving USA far less time for detection and any defensive measures as may be available

the point is that America is Iran’s most coveted target ... history has provided evidence that it can be wise to listen to the rants and threats of crazy dictators ... especially when they are preparing to attack you

just saying

Coming soon to a news headline near you:

“White House says ‘Iran Nuclear test was for peaceful purposes’”

(I had great trouble typing that, fyi)

It would be the same if it went off on American soil too.

The continued tutelage of this neophyte in the ways of the world have ceased to be funny

This incompetent get into a negotiation with a group of Bagdad rug merchants and deludes himself into believing it is an equitable situation?

What a jackass. Thanks to affirmative action.

No, neither would a detonation in Jerusalem. In fact, that would be a deal consummation.

New (for Iran) technology being what it is, I hope Jordan, the palestinians and even Iraq consider the reprecussions of a shortfall. Or an Israeli interception. Or a strong wind out of the east. I recall the Palestinians whining for gas masks during the first gulf war. Till the scuds were flying, never occurred to them that a chemical scud heading for Tel Aviv could fall on Nablus. Blinded by hatred.
