Iran testing ICBM
U.S. intelligence agencies recently detected Iran conducting a static ground test of a large rocket motor that could be used for a future intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), according to U.S. officials.We ignore their ambitions at our own peril. Ironically most of the targets of these weapons would be cities full of liberals who oppose doing anything about Iran.
Disclosure of the recent rocket engine test comes as Congress is prodding the Obama administration to deploy a third ground-based missile defense interceptor base on the U.S. East Coast.
“This engine could be used for an ICBM,” said one official familiar with the intelligence reports of the test.
