Time will tell on their power minds

Something interesting popped up yesterday at Cox & Forkum. According to Fox News, Iran's space agency is pushing hard to develop their satellite program before the imperialist infidels and zionist oppressors can shut them down. Damn the luck, eh?

Iran has major ambitions in space, looking to show off its technological abilities, monitor its neighborhood — where the United States has hundreds of thousands of troops — and establish itself as a regional superpower.

It makes similar peaceful claims for its atomic program, but Washington and others suspect the real aim of that work is to acquire nuclear weapons and have sought to clamp down on Iran's nuclear facilities. Iran worries its space program will be targeted, too.

"We have to build our own satellites, our own launchers. We need to be one of eight top countries mastering space technology," said Ahmad Talebzadeh, the head of the Iranian Space Agency.

No shit. Anyone that spends two seconds thinking about how precise your systems must be to launch a satellite into a stable orbit, and the prospect of Iran vowing to wipe Israel off the map can figure out exactly what they have in mind. The crux of this, and it should cause every one of you reading to take heed that events in shithole third world nations like Iran affect everyone, is that if one has launchers capable of reaching escape velocity, then they're able to field ICBMs. Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles.
Iran has an interest in keeping the city of Jerusalem intact, as well as many other holy sites in Judea and Samara... but once they have the technology, what's to stop them from nuking the New World until it glows? I can't think of anything that islam to say about the western hemisphere... other than calling us the Great Satan.

Still think Bush's missile defense plan is a waste of money on an outdated Cold War relic?

Even more infuriatingly, they're getting most of the new equpiment from Russia. Yes, the same Russia that's busy quelling its own muslim rebellion in Chechnya is busy selling weapons to the nation that boasted it would give nukes to jihadis if only it had them to give. Additionally, Iran's Thug-In-Chief promised that "Anybody who recognises Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury." Exactly what sort of fire might he be talking about, hmmm...

The Russkies should just save themselves the hassle and shoot themselves, rather than selling the bloodthirsty mullas a gun that can shoot us all. Please just go have some borsht and Stoli while those of us who haven't lost our fucking minds sort these assholes out.
