What did Iran do this week?
You might have answered that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Iran will deliver a "telling blow" to global powers on February 11 (the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution). Yes, he did do that. But that's not the latest.
This week Iran successfully launched a rocket into space. The media yawned. The only thing they found interesting about the launch was that the rocket had a rat, two turtles and a worm on board. But they don't look any further than that.
But technically, if Iran can send a missile up into space and have it explode, it could shut down our electronics; that would do more damage to us than any conventional bomb ever could. Imagine the chaos if an EMP bomb took all of our computers, phones, TVs, lights and flipped them off? America would be out of business.
Look, they don't have the power to do this yet, but why would Iran want to do that? Hasn't President Obama's new approach to foreign policy mended all the wounds?
In March of last year, Obama called for "engagement that is honest and grounded in mutual respect" with Iran.
Mutual respect? Really?
The only reason you would even consider talking to Ahmadinejad is because you don't understand who he really is. He's called America the "Great Satan" and also said our friends in Israel must be "wiped off the map."
The media yawns when Ahmadinejad runs off with the mouth because — so far — that's all he's done; talk. They've been trained to ignore him: He's the boy who cried wolf. They don't think he's serious. But that's because they haven't bothered to look into what he believes.
There's another thing that Ahmadinejad says that no one pays attention to. I mean, how many times have you heard the media say: Aren't you concerned about Glenn Beck's language? That you with your tea party sign might cause some kind of global catastrophe. But the guy that wants to vaporize Israel, they don't put any importance on that — you need to watch this:
