Denuncian que misiles argentinos pueden usarse en bomba de Irán Media Mentions

Authors: JOSEPH HUMIRE

Expertos sostienen que Argentina puede abastecer a Irán de la tecnología para lanzar una bomba atómica. Y aseguran que la Agencia Internacional de Energía Atómica es consciente de que Teherán tiene uranio para desarrollarla cuando quiera.

Joseph M. Humire y Douglas Farah son expertos en terrorismo. Esta semana llegaron a Uruguay para dar una conferencia en B`nai B`rith sobre la creciente injerencia de Teherán en América Latina. En entrevista con El País dijeron que la alianza entre el mandatario iraní Mahmud Ahmadinejad y el expresidente venezolano Hugo Chávez, y a su vez los lazos de Caracas con la argentina Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, dibujan una triangulación que puede abastecer a la República Islámica de la tecnología para realizar un ataque brutal contra Occidente.

Farah sostiene que sabe, “por fuentes de la AIEA (Agencia Internacional de Energía Atómica) que Irán tiene uranio para desarrollar su bomba nuclear cuando quiera, lo que no tiene es la tecnología para generar un misil que pueda llevar esa bomba”. El experto advierte, en tanto, que Argentina, de la mano del programa misilístico Condor, que fue reactivado el año pasado, puede hacerse de esa tecnología que sería trasladada a Venezuela a través de un acuerdo militar. “Y todo lo que llega a Caracas va a parar luego a Teherán”, añade.

How will Romney bring around the party’s skeptical evangelical base? What work does he need to do within the party as he pivots to a full-on general election battle with Obama?

For advice, we called on politicos who perhaps know candidate Romney, the 2012 version, best: those who worked for and advised some of his opponents in the as-good-as-over race for the GOP crown.

Paul, Obama collect most military donations to run Media Mentions

Authors: J.D. GORDON

Enlisted personnel and civilian military employees are donating more to presidential campaigns than in previous elections, and they overwhelmingly prefer two candidates: Ron Paul, the long-shot Republican presidential contender opposed to using U.S. forces as the “world’s police,” and President Obama.

Mr. Paul and Mr. Obama, who’s slashing the Pentagon’s budget, have received nearly the same number of donations of at least $200 from military voters, but the GOP candidate’s haul adds up to $100,000 more than the president’s, a Washington Times analysis of publicly available Federal Election Commission records showed.

Each has lapped the rest of the GOP field several times, taking in 20 times as many military donations as former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and more money than all their rivals combined. Mr. Paul took in $300,588 to Mr. Romney’s $30,293.

“If we’re going to go to war, and there’s a good reason, then we shouldn’t be fighting with two hands behind our back because we’re doing peacekeeping,” said Jordan Whitson, a soldier in the Army National Guard in Alabama who has written three checks to the Paul campaign. “Germany, South Korea and Japan — there’s a lot of money wasted over there.”
