  1. I believe the U.S. Space Command has about a dozen satellites that could knock it out of the sky. And 15,000 nukes that could turn Iran into the new Sahara Desert. Why does the Pentagon and the U.S. media continue with this fear-mongering?

  2. Please brothers & Sisters, remember God is in control. There are believers in these country's. Pray that the Good News will still be spoken.

  3. If Iran is able to launch an ICBM with a 550 lb. payload it could be able to launch one with a nuclear weapon. This is a violation of Obama's nuclear agreement. It also makes them an existential threat to Israel and possibly the United States. Time to let Iran know there's a new sheriff in town who will protect the U.S.A. and Israel against all threats.
