Once again the UN allowed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to stand up in front of the world and tell everyone that Israel will be eliminated. It seems that so many of our leaders never really studied Hitler’s rise to power……will somebody please send President Obama a copy of “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”? It he’s too busy to read the 1000+ pages, will someone tweet him the youtube link?
If you have never seen the movie here it is: http://youtu.be/PUa5-8fhzCQ
Unlike other bloviating leaders in Banana Republics like Hugo Chavez, whose military couldn’t fold up a paper airplane and fly it into the next cubicle. Iran is quite a different story.
First off Iran in a first world country, its population is highly educated and values education ( an entirely different topic), and many of the wealthy elite that live in Iran have been educated at the worlds best universities. Iran has a large core workforce of scientists, physicists, and engineers that rival some of the world best technologists. Secondly, Iran has a large amount of Oil and Gold wealth. In case you have not been following along, Iran is doing its oil deals in trade for gold bullion to destabilize the dollar as the worlds reserve currency (that’s another story to). Third: Iran has the money to buy top weapons technology from Russia, China, and North Korea’s Military industrial complex.
So are they really building a military arsenal? One would think yes, due to the recent development of pinpoint accurate medium range missiles. Do they have the technology to manufacture weapons grade nuclear material? They are proving that now.
Do they have ability to deliver a nuclear weapon via highly advanced stealth drone??????? Seemingly in one of the biggest military bungles of this century, the Iranian military was able to remotely take over a US made stealth drone (our most advanced drone) and land it safely. I’ll bet anybody a $100 that they are fast at work copying these drone to be used and an offensive weapon.
If you think this is one conspiratorial theory, just remember that in the Mid 1930′s the Germans built and few the very first flying wing. In 1944 they built a jet powered flying wing called the Horten IX and knew that it had a much lower radar cross section. It wasn’t until the end of WW2 when the US allowed German Scientists on immigrate into the US that Jack Northrop built his first two flying wings with the third production model being the B2 Spirit bomber being flown today. Here is a link to flying wing info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horten_Ho_229
I surmise that in the even of a new gulf war that this stealth technology will be the ace up Iran’s sleeve if nothing is done soon.
