TEHRAN, Iran – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran test-fired a new advanced missile Wednesday with a range capable of reaching Israel and U.S. Mideast bases, sending a provocative message days after President Barack Obama pressured Tehran to accept his offer for a dialogue.
The U.S. has criticized Iran's missile development and said such launches stoke instability in the Middle East.
The solid-fuel Sajjil-2 surface-to-surface missile tested has a range of about 1,200 miles, far enough to strike at southeastern Europe.It is a new version of the Sajjil missile, which Iran said it had successfully tested late last year with a similar range. Many analysts said the launch of the Sajjil was significant because solid fuel missiles are more accurate than liquid fuel missiles of similar range, such as Iran's Shahab-3.
You want to talk about sunshine and lollipops, they want to shoot missiles and build nuclear bombs.
You are a huge pussy Mr. President, and you are only looking more like food to the predators that live in this dangerous world.
Our enemies are laughing at you and your weakness. They laugh at America and they know that very soon, they will be in a position to own us, and there will be nothing that can be done to stop them.
