I don’t know how you all are feeling, but doesn’t it just “feel” like War is inevitable with Iran before Bush leaves the White House? Israel is crying out for support against Iran, who are claiming they are “ready” for any attack, claiming the capablity to take out large warships with their missle defense system. In addition to tha, the U.S. has just sent another aircraft carrier to the gulf to step up pressure.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards test-fired missiles on Thursday that a commander said could sink “big warships” in the Gulf, the Sea of Oman and the northern Indian Ocean, the state broadcaster said.Iran is at loggerheads with the United States over its disputed nuclear program and what Washington calls its meddling in Iraq. The United States has ordered a second aircraft carrier to the Gulf to step up pressure on Iran.
“These missiles, with a maximum range of 350 km (220 miles), can hit different kinds of big warships in all of the Persian Gulf, all of the Sea of Oman and the north of the Indian Ocean,” senior Revolutionary Guards naval commander Ali Fadavi said.
Fadavi was also quoted by the state broadcaster’s Web site as saying that the 500-kg (1,100-lb) warhead of this missile had the capacity to sink “all kinds of big warships”.
Not that this is what I want to happen (War with Iran), but more like this is what needs to happen if we are going to stop a genocidal inciting maniac from killing millions of people.
