Video: Iran unveils new satellite

Russia's Ria Novosti network reports on Iran's unveiling of its new satellite on Wednesday.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled a domestically-built satellite booster rocket Wednesday, part of an ambitious space programme that has worried Western powers because they fear the same technology used to launch satellites could also deliver warheads.

Officials say the light booster rocket, named Simorgh (phoenix), can carry a satellite weighing 220 pounds (100 kilogrammes) up to 310 miles (500 kilometres) above the Earth.

Meanwhile, the county's state television broadcast images it said were of the launch of the Kavoshgar-3, or Explorer-3, rocket on Wednesday.

Iran's defence minister said his country's successful launch was for research purposes.

General Ahmad Vahidi did not elaborate on the rocket or its research purposes.
Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Will).

It's real simple...

Either Israel can live with an Iran that calls for it's wiping off the face of the earth, that spends billions a year setting up armies on it's borders (hezbollah, syria, hamas, al queda) (not to mention iran's involvement in lebanon, iraq & others) spends billions on it's nuke program, it's missile program and it's army

or not...

If Iran is an life or death issue concerning Israel, then there will be a time for partial remedies to end.

Iran must be crippled to stop it's path, and to be blunt, it's path is the destruction of Jews and Israel.

Only 60 years after the last major attempt to cause genocide to the Jewish people we are facing a real threat once again....

Delay, letting Iran arm and hide it's assets are foolish.

I may sound like I am war mongering but if you understand that I am advocating the destruction of hezbollah, hamas, syria and iran's war making infrastructure. This does include their commercial duel use technologies and other industries that support the Iranian regime.

Thus if Israel chooses to LIVE it will have to choose to go to war. And this war will not like Lebanon or Gaza, Israel WILL have to target power generation & storage, they will have to try to CRIPPLE Iran, Syria, Gaza & Lebanon. The blow will HAVE to be massive and something that will take years to rebuild from...

I could make a list of targets, but there are many better than I at that, but the point remains...

PINPRICKS are for pimples...

Iran is becoming a cancer.

I feel for the innocents of Iran and I do no wish for them any harm however it's becoming a life or death issue..

In the end, the direct attacks by Israel on the commercial and military targets can be done to avoid excessive civilian deaths, however there will not be time to phone each citizen of Gaza, Lebanon, Syria & iran that they should not be around large targets.
