However, there seems to be no end to the lies that the MSM will put out to entice the public into supporting a new war against Iran. Here is a prime example in terms of the following article that I came across through www.foxnews.com. It is totally absurd, and absolutely despicable. It shows the desperation of the Zionists for their want of war against Iran. Here is that article:

Iranian Missile May Be Able to Hit U.S. by 2015By Mike Emanuel
"With sufficient foreign assistance, Iran could probably develop and test an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the United States by 2015," says a new 12 page unclassified report prepared by the Department of Defense on the Iran Military Threat.
The report says Iran's military strategy is designed to defend against external or "hard" threats from the United States and Israel. "Iran's nuclear program and its willingness to keep open the possibility to develop nuclear weapons is a central part of its deterrent strategy," according to the report.
Iran continues being a disruptive force inside Iraq, it alleges.
"Iran continues to provide money, weapons and training to select Iraqi Shia militants despite pledges by senior Iranian officials to stop such support," the report says. "Iran also offers strategic and operational guidance to militias and terrorist groups to target U.S. Forces in Iraq and undermine U.S. interests."
It also outlines what Defense Secretary Robert Gates has called Tehran playing a "double game" inside Afghanistan.
Regarding the effectiveness of Iranian Conventional Forces, "Iran maintains very sizeable military forces, but they would be relatively ineffective against a direct assault by well trained, sophisticated military such as that of the United States or its allies."
It does judge Iran's unconventional forces, which include paramilitary forces, "would present a formidable force on Iranian territory."
The report outlines Iran's nuclear weapons capabilities and developments saying it is "keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons," which is consistent with what we've heard from a wide range of U.S. officials. It says the Iranians have gone to great lengths to protect its nuclear infrastructure from physical destruction including using buried and hardened facilities.
The final aspects of the report review the regime's efforts to improve ballistic and cruise missile capabilities.
The secretary of defense is required as part of the National Defense Authorization Act to submit a classified and unclassified report on the current and future military strategy of Iran.
NTS Notes: You have to love the propaganda effect of this article by showing the Iranian leadership sitting while the big shiny white missile goes by! The ploy is obvious to try to sway peoples' opinions by visual "fear" tactics. And you definitely have to love the wording used in this article to vilify the Iranians as much as possible. Utter garbage and propaganda by Fox News!
This is definitely one for my Files Of Absurdity. As if Iran would actually consider building an "Intercontinental Ballistic Missile" to hit the United States! What a waste of time, considering the thousands of missiles the US possesses that would turn the entire nation of Iran into glass in a retaliatory strike. And we cannot forget about the hundreds of Nuclear bombs and missiles that Israel possesses. That again is sorely missed in all of these outrageous news reports.
More propaganda, readers. Lets not be fooled by this rhetoric.
More to come
