American Missiles Target Russia

The United States has tested some missiles, previously, that could reach Russia.

Some countries don't like America or trust what it does with it's weapons and so want it to stop being a pushy git and chill out.

The US President (may have) said that it's nothing to worry about, they're just part of a massive military programme.

But the Secretary of State (might have) said that any action by Russia against the US will result in all out war.

The US has faced pressure in the UN about it's being a dick.

What do you reckon then? Good enough for the Sun? Should I be waiting for the job offer to appear in my email anytime soon?

No? Why not? If it's good enough for Tom Wells, then it should be good enough for me...

Iran Targets Israel

...screams the headline.

IRAN yesterday goaded the West by test-firing missiles that could hit Israel or even EUROPE.
Experts say the Shahab-3 and Sajjil rockets have a range of up to 1,300 miles.

That could include Israeli cities, US military bases in the Gulf and south-eastern Europe.

Iran goaded the West (note the capital letter. Where is this place they call the 'West'?) with missiles that could hit Israel or EUROPE.

These missiles have the range, but are they targeting us?

Later, Iranian Air Force chief General Hossein Salami declared: "All the missiles hit their targets."

Is everyone here? *does a quick head-count* Good. Those missiles weren't targetted at Israel or Europe then.

Iran insisted the war games by hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were just part of a military testing programme.

Missiles were tested by the military in a programme to develop long range weapons. Ooh. A that statement seems to checkout ok.

But defence minister Ahmad Vahidi warned Israel any military action against his nation would result in all-out war.

This is the bit that justified the headline: Iran has missiles. They could reach Israel. Iran threatens war on Israel if Israel attacks Iran. Ergo Iran's missile are trained on Israel.

By that logical, Everyones missiles are targeting everyone else.

But what did Israel say? Did Israel threaten Iran if it carried on with the testing? Are Israels' missiles, of which some are nuclear, pointing at Iran?

That warning from Ahmed Vahidi is a response to something, it is also not a quote, so is it out of context? Is it a warped interpretation of what was actually said? Seeing as there is nothing to substantiate the declaration in the headline, I would take all that with a pinch of salt.

I've always found that swapping the words round does a grand job of making the point hit home. Good stuff.
