Iran launches rocket, unveils its developing missiles

Iran launched a research rocket and unveiled its first major space center, state television reported Monday, the latest steps in a program many fear may be cover for further development of its military ballistic missiles. State television showed live images of the event, with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad issuing the launch order. Iran has long declared a goal of developing a space program, but the same technology used to put satellites in space can also be used to deliver warheads. The country's space program, like its nuclear power program. has provoked unease abroad. "It's is just another troubling development," State Department spokesman Sean Mcormack said. "And, of course, the U.N. Security Council and other members of the international system have expressed their deep concern about Iran's continuing development of medium and long-range ballistic missiles." By Ali Akbar Dareini, Associated Press writer.

First of all the U.N. Security Council is a joke. They are like big dogs with no teeth, all bark and no bite. The world knows this and that is the U.N. is just a big bag of wind and will not do any thing to stop anyone. Just ask the victims in Africa. Do you really believe Iran has a space program and are using these test to put a satellite in space? If you do, why don't you believe them when Ahmadinejad said he wants to eliminate Israel? If the U.N. does not stop them, and they can't, and the U.S. doesn't stop them, and the new president won't, then Israel will. When Israel does this the Arab nations will be in an uproar and might attack Israel and then the United States will get involved. Even if the Arab nations don't attack Israel they have all the cards, the oil cards. And they will play them against the U.S. to punish Israel. The U.S. uses 20 million barrels of oil a day. That is 7 billion, 300 million barrels a year. We can't grow enough corn to take the place of oil. Oil is our economy life blood, remove the oil our economy dies. We have two choices and I think we should do them both. 1. Drill for more oil in our country, this will also help bring down our national debt buy bring more money into our treasury. 2. Flex our muscle toward Iran, demanding we want to see your space program, your missiles and your nuclear power plant. If they don't want to show us then we don't believe them and we must take some sort of action. Truly the world is becoming a small place. What happens on the other side of the world effect our lives. Let's get our heads out of the sand.
