    Iranian Missile May Be Able to Hit U.S. by 2015

    FOXNews.com - Iranian Missile May Be Able to Hit U.S. by 2015

    U.S. Defense Department report also says Iranians have gone to great lengths to protect its nuclear infrastructure from physical destruction including using buried and hardened facilities.

    "With sufficient foreign assistance, Iran could probably develop and test an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the United States by 2015," says a new 12 page unclassified report prepared by the Department of Defense on the Iran Military Threat.

    The report says Iran's military strategy is designed to defend against external or "hard" threats from the United States and Israel. "Iran's nuclear program and its willingness to keep open the possibility to develop nuclear weapons is a central part of its deterrent strategy," according to the report.
    So while Russia is signing non-proliferation and disarmament agreements with the U.S., are they also working closely with Iran to make them a capable threat to the U.S. at the same time?

    If we don't do something soon, this won't end well.

    Obama will be out of office by then so we can start repairing the damage
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    What evidence do you have that Russia is providing such technology? All known Iranian missiles are based off North Korean designs or home built.

    Do you have a proposal?

    Past precedent, for one. Iran knows who butters its bread, and Russia's been doing it for a couple decades. Why do you think they have a ton of Russian aircraft?

    That's why I scoffed at Obama trying to pull this nonproliferation crap with Russia. Russians are the most nationalistic people in the world, and they are blessed with a long memory. They have no problem fighting wars by proxy, and are well-versed in presenting an olive branch in one hand and a saber in the other.

    Minus the long memory, that sounds like the United States or any other powerful nation.

    That's the prerequisite of being a powerful nation.

    There's still no actual source that says Russia is providing nuclear technology TODAY, or in the past for that matter.

    In fact if we went by simple past precedent, then the US must still be providing Iran with weapons and technology right?

    Just furthers my point. I trust Russia as much as a Russian citizen trusts the USA. Appropriate for both accounts.

    You're kidding, right?

    Nice red herring. That was for a specific purpose. Russia has long-term and intricate financial symbiosis with Iran. Rubles have been flowing in there much longer than dollars were.

    Sometimes I think we'll still be splitting hairs about who-hit-John after an Iranian nuke rips Manhatten a new ... orfice.

    notice how the effort to curb north korea's nuclear capability has ended now that it has become a member of the nuclear 'family'
    that can't be lost on iran. expect them to accelerate the deveopment of their own nukes before the US can fabricate a pre-emptive ruse to justify doing israel's bidding and bombing iran's facilities
    seems America has become the world's bully
    pity
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
