Iranian Missiles Could Reach USA by 2015

The Defense Department released an unclassified report yesterday regarding the Iranian military capabilities.  Their report stated that Iran could be capable of producing a long range missile that could reach the United States by 2015.  It is also estimated that Iran could be capable of developing a nuclear weapon in the next 3-5 years.  If that is not a sobering thought, then I don't know what is.

Now, I am not enamored with the idea of us ever having to use a nuclear weapon again.  However, having lived through the Cold War, I do like the idea of having the deterrent available to us.  When past presidents had to deal with the Soviet Union and the nuclear arms race, each side knew the other was capable of wiping the other off the map.  Despite our philosophies being polar opposites, neither side wanted a holocaust. 

I don't think we can say the same thing about the Iranian government.  With the Iranian regime, we are dealing with an ideology that believes that they will receive their reward in heaven by fighting the infidels of the west and Israel.  Their mindset is not like any other we have dealt with in the past.

The idea of reducing nuclear weapon stockpiles in and of itself is not necessarily a bad idea.  Reagan and others negotiated with the Soviets to reduce arms.  Our dealings with the Iranians, and the North Koreans for that matter, have shown time and time again that negotiations are futile.  Obama himself said that the threat of a nuclear attack has gone up.  Based on that alone, now is not the time to cut funding on missile defense or our nuclear deterrent.

  1. As usual Americans are fooling, confounding and creating a scare. what does it matter if the Iranian missiles get the capability by way of distance to reach the US ( it is similar to Iranian civilian aircrafts capable of flying from Tehran to New York). What however, really matters is whether Iran will have the capability to destroy the US as the US have had the capability to destroy scores of nations all around the world ( Vietnam, Iraq, Haiti, Cambodia, Lebanon, Columbia, Nicaragua, Philippines and very many) in order to dominate the world politically, economically, militarily and culturally. Right now the US alone has about 16,000 nuclear war heads. In 2015 it might reach heaven knows what?
    Iran by then will not have even one-thousandth of that capability. The one and the only nation that has ever used an atomic weapon makes cock and bull stories about other peace loving nations developing them for peaceful purposes? Americans are hoodwinking and looking for an opportunity to annihilate and devastate poor Iran. No wonder atheists more sarcastically ask the question: Does God Exist? Meaning Does Justice exist in this world? Except the American Justice.

  2. the way I am reading your comment is that you believe that Iran is a peace loving nation, you have got to be kidding me.

  3. Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

  4. The third message from heaven...

    If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
