Iran according to neocons:

Can’t shoot down drone flying at 90mph, somehow can fire nuclear armed ICBM at continental US.


#3

From the article:

According to Little, two Iranian jets fired twice, missing on both attempts


#4

I think the drone’s family and friends should go to Iran and exact revenge. :slight_smile:


#5

We ought to send Rosie ODonnel that will fix them


#6

And this was kept secret until yesterday.

#8

as for Rosie O Donnel??? The cow jumped over the moon.


#9

EWWWWW! Blech!! Just the thought of her makes me want to hurl! Yeah, let’s wrap her in bacon!


#10

JJF: Yeah, I read this on another website. I guess it’s only a “coincidence” that this was “revealed” the day after the election. Like the election, this is another example of what we can expect from now on…not just in the next 4 years…but for many, MANY 4 years to come.


#11

…and we notified Iran that what they did was illegal and we would keep flying drones.

Betcha they’re quaking in their boots now!! [/sarc]


#12

Nah…they will start quaking when BO points his little black finger at them and with a firm, commanding voice says, “Let’s talk!”


#13

First of all, I’m not worried about them hitting the U.S. (at least not yet); I’m worried about them hitting Israel. Second, nailing a small moving target with either guns mounted on a moving platform or missiles with a warhead that weighs less than a hundred pounds (and usually much less; as little as about ten) literally on the fly is a radically different prospect from hitting a LARGE STATIONARY TARGET (read: city) with a LARGE (read: easy to equip with comprehensive guidance) MISSILE with a NUCLEAR WARHEAD launched from a STATIONARY PLATFORM with no time constraint.


#14

FC: Honestly, some people just refuse to recognize reality.


#15

“fired on unarmed drone,”

Makes it sound like a person. I’m sure the drone is unfazed with being shot at. That’s why we use them.


#16

I’m not. Israel has over 300 nukes of their own, the most advanced anti-missile systems, one of the most advanced intelligence service ever known to man, an armed and trained population, the most advanced and deadly airforce in the region, and a huge stockpile of chemical and biological weapons.

Israel can defend herself.


#17

Missile defense- even now- is unreliable. As to the rest, they’re useless against long-range ballistic missiles, and the Islamic zealots in Iran’s government don’t really care if Israel’s counterstrike turns them into a glass parking lot anyway; they only want to fulfill their warped prophesies.

[/quote]Yes the neocon Ron Paul does say that


#19

Unlike the USA, whose military has been so depleted and will continue to be depleted with another 4 years of BO. You seem to hold the same position as BO, by the way… There’s a quote of Jesus somewhere in the N.T. where He says something like: “…go and be well…” sort of a biblical “have a nice day” quote. I believe His message was that we are called to be more than just “have a nice day” people. Israel may be able to defend herself, (which I don’t believe), what about us? Can we really defend ourselves? And what will we do if Israel snubs us at some point when we’re being attacked–again? BO has put us in a very precarious position globally–but especially with Israel. It is going to prove to be a huge mistake–much to our own destruction.


#20

If that were true why hasn’t Iran attacked Israel…ever.

Anyway, Israel can defend herself. American taxpayer dollars and troops should not be used to defend her.
