According to the Jerusalem Post, Iran is constructing a massive rocket launch site near its existing rocket base located in the Semnam Province East of Tehran.
Satellite imagery suggest the site is of a North Korean design. Defense intelligence groups said the site is capable of launching Iran’s Simorgh missile that was unveiled in February. While Iran claims the Simorgh is a space launch vehicle, experts are quick to note the ability to adapt the Simorgh into an ICBM to carry nuclear warheads.
While Iran claims both its’ missile program and its’ nuclear program are for peaceful civilian purposes, Israel warns “The fact that Iran is investing billions of dollars in the development of long-range missiles, in parallel to its nuclear project, is clear indication of its intent”.
The is further proof that sanctions have not worked. A recent article in the NYT notes thats the federal government has awarded 107 billion dollars in contracts to entities working with Iran.
As Michele Malkin has often noted the US company General Electric continued to honor contracts with Iran in defiance of the sanctions. General Electric is also the parent company of NBC and MSNBC which may explain their anti-US and anti-Israel reporting habits. I should also note that GE is heavily invested in global warming carbon trading and supports cap-and-trade. This may explain why NBC and MSNBC totally ignore the explosion in British news concerning the lies and deceit on the part of climate change scientists and other advocates.
It has becomes apparent that the only country interested in preventing Iran from constructing nuclear weapons is the country of Israel. Our president is neither concerned, nor willing to take the political heat from the left, with taking actions to prevent Iran from possessing nuclear weapons or nuclear missile launch capabilities.
Iran is a rouge state led by an Islamic ideology that believes the destruction of Israel will bring out the 12th Iman. The introduction of the 12th Iman will result in the destruction of all Western powers and the World will be taken over by Islam.
While the world largely ignores Iran’s intent, the fanatics in Iran tell us every day they are going to destroy Israel and the West. As with Osama Bin Laden, they have declared war on us and we will not acknowledge them until it is too late.
