Rocket Man

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.

Iranian Silo-Based Missiles: Coming soon to a Bolivarian Republic near You

[…] 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.

N Korea and Iran ‘sharing ballistic missile technology’

North Korea and Iran appear to have been exchanging ballistic missile technology in violation of sanctions, a leaked UN report shows.

The report, obtained by Reuters, said regular transfers had been taking place through “a neighbouring third country”, named by diplomats as China.

Iran Advances Nuclear Program, Increases Arms Smuggling

While the world’s attention is focused on the wave of unrest sweeping the Middle East, Iran has managed to accelerate its suspected nuclear weapons program and boost arms smuggling to terrorist groups.

At the occasion of Nuclear Technology Day celebrated in Tehran earlier this month, Iranian scientists and officials said they had successfully tested advanced centrifuges for enriching uranium and were getting prepared to activate the country’s first nuclear reactor.

 Western officials and experts say these gains in Iran’s nuclear program could effectively erase setbacks from recent cyber-attacks and shorten the timeline for acquiring nuclear weapons.

Connect the dots…

    Very useful Bob M. If people can’t understand the danger after reading this they never will. I am reposting if you don’t mind!

  3. The United States is headed for a disastrous wake-up call!

    Chavez in partnership with Iran is a recipe for international disaster.

    I do wonder if Chavez might be a convert to Islam. Just sayin’.

      He’s dangerous enough as a socialist, AOW. The little matter of a nuclear Iran with missiles in hardened Venezuelan silos is going to have to be dealt with forcefully.

      I’m not thinking the Catholic Church would miss him…

      Bob I’ll link this later and send out an email in the morning..

      • Bob Mack says:

        Thanks, Grumpy. Still haven’t seen a thing in the MSM about this. Strange to think they wouldn’t consider hostile missiles with the potential of hitting the East Coast as a news item…

  4. samiam60 says:

    Excellent Bob…… we both posted on this topic within 25 minutes of each other. I hope to see this spread throughout the web alerting people to the next big crisis America will have to face.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Let’s hope it goes viral. It’s disheartening that the MSM is so far gone that it won’t report on a matter truly vital to US national security.

    this is a perfect addendum to my latest rant only much more informative!…thank u Bob for caring and for sharing the facts….:)

  7. Oh boy! More toys for Hugo. This is the second time this story has come out of Die Welt in Germany. That I know of, no MSM is carrying the story. There is zero news on this here in Venezuela. Somebody better wake-up soon! If this story is true, and I believe it is, it is amazing that Hugo has been able to keep his mouth shut about it. He loves to pound his chest.

  8. TexasFred says:

    If Hugo had a highly accurate missile and would only nuke DC, I’d be all for it… 😈

    The moron in chief needs to be incarcerated ASAP.
    This fool is destroying our country while sticking his finger in our eye and laughing at the same time.
    If this congress can’t strap him down after all that has happened, we need a new congress.
    All of them OUT !
    No pensions,…back to the private sector that you created.
    Go make a living you freaking parasites.

    Would this not be Obama’s “Cuban Missile Crisis” only in Venezuela? Amazing Obama says or does nothing to upset Iran and their wacky president and psychotic Ayatollahs.

  11. roblorinov says:

    I’m surprised this post has not gotten a million hits in light of the FACT that once Iran has their missiles in Venezuela they will be capable of hitting most of the Eastern USA where most of the American population lives. Does anything phase us? Anything?

    • Bob Mack says:

      The public worries more about who was booted from American Idol this week than Iranian missiles aimed in their direction. I’m sure glad they’ve got our backs.
