OH "F" YES!!!!!!!

Picture is of one of my favorite missiles ever due to its MEAN ASS LOOK. It's name: NIKE HERCULES one of many in a long line of American intercepter missiles. Unfourtunately the fact is that it was designed, and deployed to NUKE the Ruskies out of our skies. Many were deployed in Mitch Chee Gon. Thank GOD they were not needed. They were equipped with nuclear bombs and the fallout of destroying atomic bomb laden Tupoluvs with an ATOMIC bomb is ,,,,,,well unimaginable.

Now hopefully a more practical approach has been wrought......

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military shot down a target ballistic missile over the Pacific on Friday in the widest test of its emerging antimissile shield in 18 months, the Defense Department announced.

The Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency said it had successfully completed an important exercise involving the launch of an improved ground-based interceptor missile designed to protect the United States against a limited long-range ballistic missile attack.

The test results will help improve the performance of a multibillion-dollar shield against the type of long-range ballistic missile that could be used to attack a U.S. city with a weapon of mass destruction, the agency said in a statement.

Officially, the $85 million test was designed to collect data rather than shoot down the target.

It was the first involving a live target since interceptor rockets failed to leave their silos during tests in December 2004 and February 2005.

It was also the first since the ground-based system, which is part of a layered shield that includes naval and aerial components, was activated to guard against ballistic missiles test-fired on July 4 and 5 by North Korea.

Boeing Co. is prime contractor for the ground-based mid-course defense. Major subcontractors include Lockheed Martin Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp. and Raytheon Co..

In the exercise, a target missile was launched from Kodiak, Alaska. And for the first time, the ground-based interceptor missile was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in central California. Previous launches have been from the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- The International Atomic Energy Agency told the U.N. Security Council its inspectors have found new traces of enriched uranium in Iran.

The discovery marked the third instance that highly enriched uranium was found at an Iranian facility, but the IAEA said the nuclear fingerprint on the new discovery does not match that found on earlier samples, which the agency had concluded came from contaminated equipment from Pakistan, The New York Times reported Friday.

The 6-page IAEA report did not identify where the uranium might have originated or whether it was connected to a secret nuclear program in Iran. The country has insisted that its nuclear program is aimed only at producing energy, a task that would use uranium enriched at much lower levels than that found by the IAEA inspectors.

The report said that Iran was continuing to produce enriched uranium at low levels and on a small scale at its Natanz facility.

The Security Council had set Thursday as a deadline for Iran to discontinue enrichment, and a failure to comply by the country could result in economic and political penalties.
Today is Friday Sept. 1, 2006 -Libby.

It is also possible that Pakistan might have made the sale directly. Elements of Pakistan's leadership share an anti-Western, fundamentalist Islamic outlook with their Iranian counterparts, although historically, Pakistan's Sunni Muslims have not made common cause with Iran's Shias.

The only commonality is a shared hatred of Israel. Bordering on the insane. With most despots and criminally minded individuals, blame is the key to self supplication. "I am not at fault as this group, or that person drove me to it." While I don't believe GOD shares that defective arguement, the radical Islamofascists do.
Unfortunately, with Iran's revolutionary faction still controlling the country's national security policy and seemingly more emboldened each day as it sees new opportunities for influence in Southern Iraq, the prospects for such a turnaround in Iran's nuclear posture appear all too distant.
So what to do? Take em out before they destroy innocent children, women and men?
Sanctions? That makes me laugh so hard I almost puke. The UN?, laughing still.
Maybe Luxemburg will man up and provide an answer, Still laughing, Luxemburg only provides, nevermind, children may read this. The Democrats have an answer I know! This is it! Finally!
Set up a government program to regulate and tax IRAN. That will surely destroy their will. It has nearly destroyed AMERICA.

Libby's "Spidey Senses" are tingling. Pray GOD it's for the good. I can't yet decipher it today 09/01/06. For the sake of the innocent, I wish I could.
