    Iran is planning to place medium-range missiles on Venezuelan soil, based on western information sources[1], according to an article in the German daily, Die Welt, of November 25, 2010. According to the article, an agreement between the two countries was signed during the last visit o Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to Tehran on October19, 2010. The previously undisclosed contract provides for the establishment of a jointly operated military base in Venezuela, and the joint development of ground-to-ground missiles.

    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

    This of course cannot be allowed.
    If it means bombing the facility once started - then so be it.
    There cannot be one U.S. city that has a missile threat controlled by any such nation.
    Anything but utter destruction of a facility is completely unacceptable.

    How about just having defense that blows up the missiles once launched?

    Seems pretty easy to me, have a satelite on the area, if a missile gets launched, launch one of our own far more advanced missiles at the Iranian missile.

    Dust off your hands, and move along.

    Nope. I would go with the 100% route - no missile in the first place.

    Actually, we already have those systems, and they're based on destroyers, and oh yeah......they are capable of shooting down ICBM's.

    They put 'em up, we'll be able to shoot 'em down. I like your idea Dr. Drock.

    Fuck Chavez and fuck that little Iranian midget. Don't allow them to be there period. Chavez and mini-me both need a good bitch slap, this would be a great time.

    Seeing the missiles can not reach the US, How about in stead of shooting down a rocket aimed at Columbia, we drop a cruise through Hugo's bedroom window.

    We can't do that until after a move is made against us militarily.

    I'm not too sure about the 100% accuracy. I know when they used to do tests over the Pacific and it wasn't 100%. Just takes one to make a mess out of things.
