A word of advice, LP: "It is better not to speak and be through a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."
Of course not.
BTW Odysseus, in no way am I saying that Iran does not pose a threat to us and our allies and interests. But do you recall when North Korea announced that it could hit Japan with a missile? The MSM played it up as a huge improvement in missile technology. They are doing the same thing here.
Iran is a threat in their very specific region, and we have huge interests there. But the MSM is playing it as if they are a threat to us militarily. They can't hope to compete with our precision and long range technology. Very few countries can, and those are more susceptable to economic warfare than traditional.
You know, we hit a satellites in orbit from a cruiser with a missile, and satellites don't move very slow. I think the next time Iran decides to test missiles, we should test our missile defense systems at the same time. It's awfully convenient when you have someone willing to launch clay pigeons for you.
Think you missed the point, Major: Of what threat were all of these nasty things to the United States of America?
Iran test fires 'world's fastest' underwater missile ( April 2006)

Iranian TV interrupted normal broadcasts to show footage of the test. This latest bit of sabre-rattling, certain to irritate the US whose 5th Fleet operates in the area, comes hot on the heels of a test last week of a multi-warhead conventional...
This was completely expected in the wake of Israel's war games excercise, now we'll see who has balls.
