"Star Wars On Earth"


Manouchehr Mottaki, Iranian Foreign Minister, has called the US' proposed missile shield "star wars on Earth," adding "the US missile shield is aimed at bringing Russia under control".

Sergei Lavrov, Russian Forgeign Minister, in turn maintained his position that the intent of a US missile shield is to contain Russia's power, adding that Moscow is prepared to expand "security cooperation" with Iran and nations in the Caucasus region.

During the time of November 10 - 14 Russia and Venezuela will be holding joint military maneuvers in the Caribbean, involving 4 Russian ships, 1000 troops, as well as Venezuelan aircraft and submarines.

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
I was totally hoping this article was referring to the Millenium Falcon or Death Star being created.

This is all just preparation for WWIII.

  Not to breakup the intellectual prowess but...  
I agree with the Russians. The US (Bush) had no right breaking a treaty knowing it is just going to instigate the Russians. It's no different than when the Russians put missiles in Cuba and the US had a conniption. Our technology is better than that and this isn't necessary.

  the title had me think "theme park"  
and, in way, i guess that's what the article is about. just starting with the parking lots first.

  Red Dawn..?  
Anyone remember that movie where the premise is the US is invaded via Mexico by the Mexican Army and the Russians send in Paratroopers?
I realized this is probably not going to happen now, but since when do nations as far apart as these two have joint maneuvers? Especially when those maneuvers involve so many troops, hardware and this is happening so close to our border?
  by: Allanthar     09/15/2008 09:16 PM     
because it's an easy way to move alot of hardware without raising too many eyebrows (although they're bound to be raised aynway)

I don't know what weapons will be used in WWIII, but I do know that WWIV will be fought with sticks and stones.

That was the indirect point I was trying to make..

US and Australia have regular joint maneuvers.
I personally think the reason for the games is in responce of the 4th fleet being reactivated after 50 years in the region by the USN.
Also a good way to bring some hardware too.
