Objet: Re: Irán completa su test balístico
Date: 7 juillet, 2003 16:49
Irán bajo el Sha tenía el ejército más poderoso de la región, pero cuando
Iraq, un país más pequeño, lo atacó al irse el Sha, no les fue bien. Incluso
cuando Reagan los apoyó con armas (recuerda el Iran-Gate, las drogas y el
Coronel North) tampoco pudieron vencerlo. Y ahora que Bush ha invertido en
armas todo lo que ahorró Clinton y mucho más, no veo mucha importancia a los
cohetes que llegan hasta Israel.
Además, dicen que Israel tiene suficientes bombas atómicas para defenderse.
Así que para responde tu pregunta
¿Y ahora qué va a suceder?
Nada del lado de Irán, si sucede algo es porque Bush quiere.
