Let's rewind to the 1980's. The Democrats were unanimous in opposing Reagan's proposed missile defense initiative as a "Star Wars" pipe dream that only the Soviets would take seriously.
Now that ballistic missile defense is operational, is there anyone who believes this was a bad idea?
Iran will strike U.S. interests around the world and Israel if attacked over its disputed nuclear program, Mohammad Baqer Zolghadr, the deputy interior minister for security affairs, said Thursday. "Nowhere would be safe for America with (Iran's) long-range missiles...we can fire tens of thousands of missiles every day....With long-range missiles Iran can also threaten Israel as America's ally," he said. Iran says its Shahab-3 missile with a range of 1,250 miles is capable of hitting Israel and U.S. bases in the Gulf.
Unfortunately, Israel's leadership from Chelm doesn't seem to understand that there are unintercepted missiles landing in Israel daily. Apparently an ocean can make a difference when the technology only exists to shoot down ballistic missiles.
