    'Die Welt': Iran building rocket bases in Venezuela

    I have no idea what we can do to put a stop to this other than arrange a massive accident that would reduce the sited to rubble.

    However we are stretched thin in the money and troops.

    What can we do with Iran working full tilt on Nuclear Booms and Medium range missiles can surely hot us.

    We can't just sit around when they have said they are going to get us.

    'Die Welt': Iran building rocket bases in Venezuela
    German paper says Iranians paid cash to build mid-range missile launch pads on Paraguana Peninsula; Iranian engineers visited site in Feb.

    BERLIN – The Iranian government is moving forward with the construction of rocket launch bases in Venezuela, the German daily Die Welt wrote in its Friday edition.

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is Teheran’s most important South American ally.
    Iran is building intermediate- range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard’s Air Force, participated in the visit, according to the report. Die Welt cited information from “Western security insiders.”

    I think we should do nothing and just push for restrictions in the UN and let the art of diplomacy flow...

    Is this article for real? Is there a more mainstream source that could confirm it?

    Chavez is not going to shoot missiles at the U.S. He is not a fanatic and knows full well he is a dead man the moment he goes down that road. He intends to use the missiles as a propaganda point for his anti U.S. rhetoric. While the situation is somewhat problematic, it isn't a dire threat.

    The situation is problematic because Venezuela could become another Cuba, which is a clearly stated goal of Chavez.

    1: destroy said rocket bases.

    2: pressure venas swayla into a cuba missile crisis agreement.

    Either way, the US cannot accept such a threat so close to it's shores. From a useless country or not.

    A single B2 could probably take care of that facility.

    Re: 'Die Welt': Iran building rocket bases in Venezuela

    Thats a tricky one, how do we destroy a bunch of rocket bases which don't exist in the first place??? Hmmm, well since they aren't actually there I don't think traditional military or diplomatic efforts will accomplish anything. Maybe we should look at the source of the problem and attack it there? Lets see it looks like a whole lot of ignorant paranoia and chest thumbing are the source. Wow thats even more tricky... Maybe it would be easier to conjure some rocket bases out of thin air then blow them up?

    I know where there are some rocket bases we could blow up. As you suggest, "the source of the problem".

    Funny you should mention conjuring rockets.
