Iran's New Toy

Townhall contributor Peter Brookes has a must-read item in today's Boston Herald on Iran's recent satellite launch.

Brookes leads his Herald column with this:
Normally, a satellite launch isn’t newsworthy. They happen all the time. But Iran's launch of its first domestically built satellite this week is a very big deal for U.S. national security.

Like its “civilian” nuclear efforts that remained undeclared for two decades, long-range ballistic missiles are likely being developed under cover of Iran’s space program. Indeed, Tehran’s space work could lead to the development of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) able to reach all of Europe and the United States with a WMD payload.
If you want to know more about why we need a missile defense system now, check out Peter's excellent feature in the February 2009 issue of Townhall magazine, "Missile Defense: Now More Than Ever."
