Hands up all those who think the reaction of the world's peaceniks to Iran having test-fired nine missiles, including a new missile with the capability of hitting Tel Aviv, will be to picket Iranian embassies, burn Iranian flags and remind everyone of Mahmoud Ahmedinejad's public call for Israel to be "wiped off the map"?
Anyone who thinks that will happen? No? Brig Gen Hoseyn Salami, commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards' air force, said: "Our missiles are ready for shooting at any place and any time, quickly and with accuracy." Any non-violent peaceniks want to take a stand against that? Anyone?
Or are peaceniks more likely to criticise the 'demonisation' of Iran by "a compliant media," like this apostle of non-violence and former Greens' high-flyer not long out of jail for grievous bodily harm, who wishes us to believe that Iran is not a belligerent. Yeah right. Just like he wasn't. [Hat tip Liberty Scott and AB]
Fact is, as ARI's Elan Journo identifies, either with or without nukes Iran is a mortal threat.
UPDATE: Oops! How many missiles? Looks like Iran's Photoshoppery Guards have been playing come tricks on the western media. They can't even lie straight.
