The nuclear agreement with Iran has been concluded, but it does not cancel the need to create a missile defense system to counter the Iranian missile threat, leads RIA News US State Department statement.

State Department: Nuclear agreement with Iran does not cancel creation of missile defense system


“A successful resolution of the nuclear problem does not eliminate the need for (creating) a missile defense system to counter the Iranian missile threat.” That is why the new resolution of the UN Security Council, which will codify a joint comprehensive plan of action, will keep the UN sanctions on Iran’s ballistic program for eight years, ”the State Department spokesman said.

The ministry said Iran has the largest reserves of ballistic missiles in the Middle East and "remains a source of concern for the United States and the international community."

“The United States remains committed to protecting its allies and partners from the possible threat of ballistic missiles, including those coming from Iran and its non-state allies. We will take steps to counter the Iranian missile program through security initiatives with our partners in the region, through missile defense, sanctions, export control and a missile technology control regime that the country’s 34 comply with, ”the spokesman said.

Yesterday after the signing of the agreement, Sergey Lavrov noted that Moscow is awaiting the reaction of Washington regarding the removal of tensions on the European missile defense system. The Russian minister recalled that "as in April 2009 of the year, speaking in Prague, President (US Barack) Obama said that if the Iranian nuclear program can be resolved, the task of creating a European segment of missile defense will disappear."

And the reaction to his words followed. The statement of the State Department representative was supplemented by Deputy Secretary of State Nicholas Burns, who said: “I do not think that the objections of the Russian Federation (regarding the American missile defense system) are relevant ... I think that the Russian Federation is wrong here. The United States has the right to develop sophisticated missile defense systems, given the threat from Iran and the DPRK ".

    And who would doubt it. What if missiles from the territory of Cambodia or Vietnam will fly to Berlin or Paris. Wetkong has scary Scudd rockets with a range of 100 thousand kilometers and the ability to shoot down aliens on Mars. Scary horror

      Well, yes, it doesn’t cancel, because the missile defense against Russia is being done ...

      "President (US Barack) Obama said that if the Iranian nuclear program is resolved, then the task of creating a European segment of missile defense will disappear" - "Man said-Man did" clearly does not apply to the state leader, and is it a man after the resolution gay marriage ...

        A couple of years ago, I came up with a saying about politicians, and about Obama, it’s suitable:
        Was a man, became a politician (or deputy)
        Actually, this proverb explains that Obamka "gave his word, took the floor, it’s his."

        Zadolbali their Yankees missile defense!
        And after all, no scum says that their purpose is a means of a first blow!
        Over the past decade, a qualitative breakthrough has occurred in rocket and other technologies. Tactical missiles were transformed into strategic ones, they are capable of hitting targets both in space and on earth. The history of the Standard Missile (SM) family originates from the Tartar anti-aircraft missile. Work on the SM-1 rocket began in the 1963 year. Moreover, initially all modifications of the SM-1 could be used for firing at surface targets within the radio horizon of the ship. Modifications to the SM-1 have also been specifically designed for use on ground or surface objects beyond the horizon. On the basis of the SM-1 anti-aircraft missile, the Standard ARM air-radar missile was also created. The next SM-2 rocket could also be used on targets on the surface. However, at that time, preference was given to the Harpoon subsonic missile with a longer firing range. But in the 1998 year, the United States, on the basis of the Standard-2 missile, began developing the LASM rocket for striking ground targets with the goal of taking it into service for the 2004 year. According to the developers, such a ship-to-ground missile could play a new role in attacks from the sea with a radius of up to 200 nautical miles (370 km), providing flexible point-to-point fire support for the US Marine Corps. The missile guidance system is inertial in combination with satellite navigation. In addition to the standard high-explosive fragmentation warhead, the missile is also equipped with a penetrating-type warhead. Tests fully confirmed the ability of the LASM missile to perform assigned combat missions. The US Navy was supposed to get 1200 LASM missiles. It was planned to achieve initial operational availability by the 2003 year. But in 2003, the program was stopped supposedly due to lack of funding?! ... And this is in such "fat" years for the Pentagon ... Why would it ?! LASM tests were successful. Why is the Pentagon not boasting of success? And only sometimes the information slips that, it turns out, more than one year as SM 2 missiles can destroy targets on the surface of the sea and land at a distance of 500 km. It turns out that the task was completed and exceeded!

      Yes, there are no questions and complaints. Our ICBMs to them (in the USA) will fly along other trajectories (they know this and are preparing a naval version on destroyers and cruisers), what will fly to Europe will be operational-tactical and there another scheme of interception should be implemented. The main complaint and concern is the adapted shipboard launcher itself. In which you can safely load URO, including with special. Warhead. Who knows what she is equipped with a missile defense or ax?

Then it will become clear to everyone that Iran cannot be trusted. But in general, let them insert this ABM in the ass and to the Poles and Labs and other pins ... nicknames.

And for a very, very long time, we would have to forget about all social programs, about the increase (albeit meager) of pensions. This is called "to spite my grandmother's ears frostbite"

    or keep previous promises.


    Americans say: "The service provided is worthless." Russians will never understand that trust (what the Russian mentality is based on: a man said - a man did) for an American is just a type of service provided. This is a feature of the American mentality, a feature of upbringing, instilled in childhood. They absorb it with mother's milk. And once provided (i.e., when you were believed), this service is no longer worth anything. Thus, to fulfill the given promise, if you were believed - to waste your money. And in America everything is just like that, except for money.
    But the Russians (and the mentality of the inhabitants of the republics of the former USSR) cannot understand this simple fact. This is an unfulfilled obligation for them - loss of face, evidence of moral deformity of the deceiver. For an American, an unfulfilled commitment to a believer is just another confirmation of the superiority of the American race over the mentally inferior subhumans of the second, third, and fourth worlds. The American who believes in his word immediately ceases to be respected. Just like us - deceived. These are the mentality of opposing civilizations, and that is only why we are doomed to constant confrontation.
    And it’s a completely different matter when, in case of non-compliance, an American can be brought to court, but with a forfeit.
    In this case, non-fulfillment is already a loss of money, and not their saving. Here he himself is a loser. And there is nothing worse for an American than realizing that he is a loser. This puts him on the brink of suicide. This is the main reason for the social degradation of Americans. The need to be (or at least appear in the eyes of others) "lucky" is the second thing they absorb with their mother's milk.
    Therefore, the best way to make an American respect himself is to require him to fix his obligations in writing with the maximum number of claims and sanctions in case of violation of his obligations. And the tougher the position, the higher the respect. It’s like bargaining in the East. If you buy immediately at the price you name, you are a sucker who does not deserve respect. For art and enjoyment of the process of bloodless struggle of interests is not available to you.
    But even in the case of a written contract, the American has 2 ways that do not contradict his mentality:
    - trick a silly fair-haired white-skinned nigga;
    - send frankly, relying on the right of the strong. Therefore, the US army is a sacred cow. She defends not only the life of an American, but also his right to consider himself a "lucky" in relation to stupid, gullible and weak natives. And the emergence of Russia's own position and new nuclear weapons in commercial quantities deprives the American of this feeling.
    Therefore, any promises made by the Americans on any occasion, including missile defense, and any weapons in general, are undisguised lies, both oral and written. The American mentality only accepts the insurmountability of external circumstances, based on the impact of brute and unflattering force in incredible volumes.

And our leadership all believes in the West and the USA and tries to prove something to them, to reason. The West and the USA go to the bank., I think they don’t want to fight, but to frighten yes. It’s not in vain that they started talking about the tribunal, one position is to collect as many countries as possible against us and impose sanctions through the UN Security Council.

    In view of the aggressive statements addressed to Russia by the leadership of the United States and the NATO bloc, the tendency to forcefully resolve disputed (conflict situations), taking into account that the missile defense system being built threatens the security of the Russian Federation, Russia reserves the right to deliver a preemptive strike in order to eliminate the threat by destroying system elements located in dangerous proximity to their territory. But such statements are not likely due to our hypertrophied peacefulness and the historical mantra of the leadership, "not to succumb to provocations."
