Rocket Man

I found this on Bob Mack's Make Sure You're Right than Go Ahead...

The Junior High I was attending in 1962 sat on a hill, from the windows in one classroom you could see the Dome of the US Capitol.. For a week in October, all eyes in that classroom were glued on the Dome, wondering when it.... and most likely us would turn into radioactive dust......

We now have a similar situation... John Kennedy stared down the Russians and ended a major threat to the United States... When Obama finishes his vacation in Europe, how will he handle it?


It was only a matter of time.

Once 68 million useful idiots decided to shoot their country in the foot and install as president a left-wing community organizer whose foreign policy proved to be appeasing enemies and alienating friends, it was only a matter of time before the world’s wolves smelled blood in the wind and moved dangerously closer to the flickering embers of freedom’s campfire. While a myopic Chief Executive commits America’s blood and treasure in the pursuit of goals related only peripherally to the national interest, the true carnivores are gathering:

‘Die Welt’: Iran building rocket bases in Venezuela.

Iran is building intermediate- range missile launch pads on the Paraguaná Peninsula, and engineers from a construction firm – Khatam al-Anbia – owned by the Revolutionary Guards visited Paraguaná in February. Amir al-Hadschisadeh, the head of the Guard’s Air Force, participated in the visit, according to the report. Die Welt cited information from “Western security insiders.”
The rocket bases are to include measures to prevent air attacks on Venezuela as well as commando and control stations.
[...] When Iran tested an extended-range Shahab-3 in 2009, US and other defense analysts indicated the missile’s range was up to 2000km, an improvement over the 1600km demonstrated by the baseline Shahab-3. The difference that makes to the missile base in Venezuela is that using the Shahab-3 ER would put Miami in the threat envelope.
[...] The 13 May Die Welt article states that the missile-base agreement provides for Iran to be able to attack her enemies from the base – presumably referring to the US.



  1. I was disturbed when the President decided to tell the American people he'd started a shooting war while he was on vacation in Brazil..

    Now he's having a great time in Europe...and we find out this. No sense in dwelling on the little stuff, only a hundred million or so Americans live inside the red circle.. The important people, the President and his staff are safe

  2. Thanks for the link, Grumpy. It's astounding that the MSM apparently does not think the possible targeting of the Eastern seaboard by a hostile power is newsworthy. Domestic enemies or domestic dimwits?

  3. Now and then my mind goes back to that classroon.. we knew what a 50 megaton warhead would do... and from our seats we could see the Russians primary target...

    If this goes any farther there will once again be kids sitting in that classroom...

    This time it will have been preventable....

    JFK made it a point to keep the Media and the public informed. This President seems to have forgotten the example Kennedy set. Guess he doesn't believe we can handle the truth...

    The media doesn't want to upset him.

  4. This whole fiasco does remind me of the gang who could not shoot straight.

  5. Fo now we better hope they can't sshoot straight either..

    Seems pretty sad that under Obama a OOS Counrty like Iran can get away with something the Old Soviet Union couldn't
