Instinctively, my first reaction was one of perverse gratification: you SEE liberal bastards, Iran is not a peaceful nation, representing a "religion of peace." No, on the contrary; they're terrorist group financiers (in terms of weapons, logistics, and cold hard cash) and they've killed and maimed hundreds of OUR soldiers in Iraq.
Yesterday, I chronicled Wisconsin congressional candidate, Kevin Barrett, essentially disputing the notion that Iran desires to see the "tumor" of Israel "wiped off the map." Why ELSE would Iran be developing a nuclear arsenal?
On the news today, I saw mindless idiots protesting not only the Iraq War, but any potential action against Iran as well. You on the Left just do NOT get it, do you?
"Oil prices jumped on news of the missile tests, rising $1.80 to $137.84 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange by afternoon in Europe."Doesn't this also indicate the need for this country to 1.) become less dependent on foreign oil; 2.) cultivate its own energy resources: off-shore/ANWAR oil; nuclear power; coal; oil shale?
Footage showed at least six missiles firing simultaneously and said the barrage included a new version of the Shahab-3 missile, which officials have said has a range of 1,250 miles and is armed with a 1-ton conventional warhead.
That would put Israel, Turkey, the Arabian peninsula, Afghanistan and Pakistan within striking distance.
'Our hands are always on the trigger and our missiles are ready for launch,' the official IRNA news agency quoted Salami as saying Wednesday."
It's entirely for "peaceful" purposes, I'm sure.
And you still propose to negotiate with this crazed madman, Obama?I just hear the Defeatocrat crew coming to Iran's defense, despite the man's convictions about non-Muslims, women, and homosexuals...you know, issues you TRADITIONALLY immerse yourself in?
"Iran HAS to defend herself against the marauding imperialistic United States."
"Iran is only developing a PEACEFUL nuclear program."
"Iran is misunderstood."
And on, and on, and on...
Really, it's like pissing in the wind with the Left; they'll never get it, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they just can't see the truth. You'd think 9/11 would have shook them.
But it didn't.
