In fact, Iran announced today that it had tested a new air defense system to counter missiles and aircraft during large-scale military exercises throughout the country, state-run.
Footage showed at least four surface-to-air missiles being fired from mobile launching pads. The report did not mention whether or not the missile was equipped with a guidance system.
Iran's military test-fired a series of missiles during large-scale war games in the Persian Gulf, including a missile it claimed was not detectable by radar that can use multiple warheads to hit several targets simultaneously.
Iran also announced yesterday that it will host a conference to examine what they call exaggerations about the Holocaust, during which more than 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis.
Iran says they are willing to talk about their nuclear program but that they will not stop there uranium enrichment before hand.... So I guess that would mean there is really nothing to talk about then....Iran also made sure to let the world know that the attitude of a hostile United States was to blame for the crisis....Simply amamzing, this is like watching Hitler in 1938 as the world tried to appease him...Think about how many lives were lost because we waited and waited until Hitler was so powerful before anything was done about him.....will we make the same mistake twice.
Unfortunately it looks like we will. The European Union will meet one more time with Iran to try and convince them to stop there enrichment program. Kofi Annan says negotiations are the best solution, but if the next meeting doesn't go as well then it is straight to the security council for possible sanctions against Iran.... Ooooh...not the big bad security council. I bet that really has Iran shaking in their turbans.
Bush: U.S. Must Break Foreign Oil Dependency for Growth- Video: Labor Day Speech
In his labor day speech today President Bush mentioned that the unemployment rate is 4.7% which is real good. Of course the New York Times and CNN keep saying how bad it is out there. It amazes me that when Bill Clinton was president and the Unemployment rate was 5.5% its the best economy in years... However, since its President Bush it doesn't matter how low the unemployment rate is...its bad out there folks. The economy sucks, the country sucks, Bush sucks and its all Bush's fault...In fact it's Bush's fault that he sucks too.
He also happened to mention our dependency on foreign oil and said it was not good for our growth because we get oil from people who do not like us. One of the things he mentioned was to build more nuclear power plants...interesting I have been blogging about that for years... Maybe the president is reading My Two Cents Worth...or not.
