War Propaganda: Pentagon Accuses Iran of Developing ICBM Missiles “Capable of Reaching the U.S. by 2015″

pentagon2

Washington’s war machine is now claiming that Iran is capable of developing Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) that can reach the United Sates mainland by 2015.  The Pentagon just released a report that is rather an alarming development within the Obama administration.  The report is a step closer to their long ambitious plan to attack the Iranian republic although more than 16 intelligence agencies declared that it had ceased to develop a nuclear weapons program many years ago. Back in 2012, the New York Times reported the following:

 Recent assessments by American spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program years earlier, according to current and former American officials. The officials said that assessment was largely reaffirmed in a 2010 National Intelligence Estimate, and that it remains the consensus view of America’s 16 intelligence agencies.

The Jerusalem Post reported that

“US intelligence agencies have assessed that as early as 2015, Iran will be set to test an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that has the capability to strike the United States, a released Pentagon report states.”

What the Pentagon’s assessment also stated in the report is that “Iran has ambitious ballistic missile and space launch development programs and continues to attempt to increase the range, lethality, and accuracy of its ballistic missile force,” the report says. 

The new Pentagon study can be used against the American people to instill fear that a nuclear armed Iran can strike the United States territory if the United States, NATO and Israel do not act immediately to prevent such a disaster.

“Iran could develop and test an ICBM capable of reaching the United States by 2015” according to the Pentagon report.  The report was a collaboration of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center and the Office of Naval Intelligence.  The report also accuses China and North Korea for assisting Iran in the development of the advanced missiles. “Iran has an extensive missile development program, and has received support from entities in China, and North Korea.

China and North Korea are future targets of Washington, so it is of no surprise that they are mentioned by the Pentagon.  “Iranian ballistic missile forces continue to train extensively in highly publicized exercises,” the report says, “these exercises enable Iranian ballistic missile forces to hone wartime operational skills and evolve new tactics.” the report said. Washington’s war propaganda has taken a path to suggest that Iran can and will develop missiles that can reach the United States.

Expect the Obama administration to present to the American public that Iran is a threat to world peace and security in the next State of the Union address or any other scheduled speeches in the upcoming months.  Reuters reported that “Four U.S. Republican lawmakers on Friday urged Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to conduct another test of the missile defense system this year after last week’s test failure, and to make development of a next-generation interceptor a top priority.”

The Representatives were Buck McKeon of California who is chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, Mike Rogers of Michigan who heads the committee’s strategic forces subcommittee, Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma who is also the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee and Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama. “The lawmakers said the cause of the failed July 5 missile defense test was not yet clear, but they argued that President Barack Obama cuts in spending on missile defense had reduced funding for needed tests and maintenance of the system” according to Reuters.  Washington and Tel Aviv’s ambitious plan to attack Iran is in the near future.  The world needs to prevent this coming war because the reality is that both the US and Israel is a step further to their long awaited war plans that will have social and economic consequences throughout the entire world.
