Iran is shaking in its boots at our Paper Tiger and Chief’s latest warning!
Just two days after the U.S. and its allies disclosed that Iran had been secretly developing a previously unknown underground uranium enrichment facility, Iran successfully test-fired a short-range missile. This apparent show of force was undoubtedly in response to the aforementioned U.S. warning. So, it appears the Outlaws of the world have quickly returned to the mind set they had during the Bill Clinton era when it comes to respecting America’s willingness to respond to their illegal behavior. Such a disregard for America’s intestinal fortitude to back up its threats directly led to Osama Bin Laden’s 911 attacks; he all but said so in response to the Mogadishu episode!
Gen. Hossein Salami, head of the Revolutionary Guard Air Force said, "We are going to respond to any military action in a crushing manner and it doesn't make any difference which country or regime has launched the aggression." Remember during the campaign the Anointed One said he would sit down with Aahmadinijead without pre conditions. Well, this is what the Iranian leader thinks of our Almighty Leader! Looks like Ahmadinijead’s also been reading Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals; especially the get in your opponent’s faces part!
The underground uranium enrichment facility is in the arid mountains near the holy city of Qom, inside a heavily guarded, underground fortress. Nuclear experts said the details that have emerged about the site are strong indications that Iran's nuclear program is not for peaceful purposes, as the country has long maintained. Couple this with the fact Iran is developing a long-range ballistic missile that could carry a nuclear warhead, and you can readily see the fallacy in Obama's decision to shelve the Bush administration's plan for a missile shield in Europe, which was aimed at defending against Iranian ballistic missiles. But fear not, our Supreme Leader has the same firm grasp of this situation he has on the effects, Cap and Trade, Card Check and Health Care will have on the economy!
General Salami said all missiles fired were short-range, surface-to-surface missiles which Iran had enhanced their speed and precision so they could be used in quick, short-range engagements. He also said they are now able to be launched from positions that are not as easy to hit. This has got to make Israel very nervous. Considering Hussein Obama has repeatedly thrown them under the bus lately!
In pre Iraqi War times the U.N. issued sanction after sanction, threat after threat and resolution after resolution; 28 to be exact, in order to force the other Hussein to allow "unfettered access" for the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog! Sadam ignored these threats, sanctions and resolutions just as Aahmadinijead is ignoring them now. It took action by an American President to halt the maniacal advancement of Sadam, action this current Casper milquetoast is incapable of!
And how is the only nation left with the guts and will to deter Iran from achieving nuclear weapons reacting to this latest disclosure, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Saturday the revelation was firm proof Iran was seeking nuclear weapons and Israel has not ruled out a pre-emptive strike on Iran’s nuclear sites. Israel considers Iran a strategic threat with its nuclear program, missile development and repeated calls by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for Israel's destruction. Meanwhile Obama, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy offered Iran must enter into "a serious, meaningful dialogue" over its disputed nuclear program, or face grave consequences from a united global front. Ooooohhhhhhhh, Aahmadinijead is no doubt shaking in his boots!
