Iran to put missels in Venezuela that can reach parts of the US

This from Gateway Pundit

While Obama has been focusing his attention on the Republican hostage takers and bomb throwers the Iranian regime has been stockpiling Shahab 3 missiles in Venezuela that can reach the United States.
Hudson New York reported, via Israel Matsav:

According to Die Welt, Venezuela has agreed to allow Iran to establish a military base manned by Iranian missile officers, soldiers of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Venezuelan missile officers. In addition, Iran has given permission for the missiles to be used in case of an “emergency”. In return, the agreement states that Venezuela can use these facilities for “national needs” – radically increasing the threat to neighbors like Colombia. The German daily claims that according to the agreement, Iranian Shahab 3 (range 1300-1500 km), Scud-B (285-330 km) and Scud-C (300, 500 and 700 km) will be deployed in the proposed base. It says that Iran also pledged to help Venezuela in rocket technology expertise, including intensive training of officers

Venezuela has also become the country through which Iran intends to bypass UN sanctions. Following a new round of UN sanctions against the Islamic Republic, for example, Russia decided not to sell five battalions of S-300PMU-1 air defence systems to Iran. These weapons, along with a number of other weapons, were part of a deal, signed in 2007, worth $800 million. Now that these weapons cannot be delivered to Iran, Russia is looking for new customers; according to the Russian press agency Novosti[2], it found one: Venezuela.

As far as we know, they are not nuclear missiles yet. But sleep well America, I’m sure Obama has every thing under control. Or maybe not. I seem to recall that Obama said recently he was perfectly fine if Venezuela goes nuclear. What do you think he ment by that?

  1. wow. Perfect ending to bizarre day trying to cover the Congressional votes. Why this is not a headline is bizarre, but that is the plan now isn’t it? Overwhelm the system. Stay safe.

  2. I have to admit that this is the first I have heard of this! I can’t believe that this isn’t a huge story, Obama is making us less safe and if this had happened under Bush the media and the Democrats would make sure we all knew about it.

    1. I don’t understand why this isn’t in the headlines. Perhaps this German source is wrong. But my instincts tell me otherwise. Having observed Chavez for the past 12 years, this is exactly the kind of thing he would agree to.
