The US government struck an agreement with Poland to place missile interceptors on Polish soil in exchange for military assistance . These interceptors are needed to counter Iranian missiles the White House says! http://bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a6kOsE60Adag&refer=home Sounds familiar ? Remember they said Saddam had WMD and could hit Europe. Same bullshit people are believing today. At the time reading this stuff from my home PC in the UK thousands of miles away and not being a military expert , it was obvious to me this was nonsense, even if they had WMD they didn't have the delivery capability nor did they have the intent or the motives to hit Europe , And there was no way they could hit the US with missiles. The same can be said today of Iran, what in the world would Iran try to accomplish by targeting Europe ? For starters, they don't have the delivery capability either as I understand. Pure nonsense again. The reality is unless you change the Iran government from the inside and in a democratic way there is no way you can prevent them to go nuclear for civil purposes. That 's their legitimate right. It's also one can argue, their legitimate right to have nuclear weapons , after all the US have struck a neigbouring country in an illegal war that was based on lies and deception, and Israel has threatened Iran numerous times. So put yourself in the position of the Iranian people. The current hardline regime has made very difficult to have any trust in them but in the end, the anti -Israel statements are just a lot of rhetoric. That noone understands this as well as the fact that only a diplomatic solution is viable is very worrying. It means people don't learn lessons given just 4 years ago. One then has to wonder what the real reason behind the missile shield is . I am not against the idea, but it's obvious this shield wil not be built because of Iran. Perhaps that's why Russia is so opposed to it.
