Reuters, "Iranian missile may be able to hit U.S. by 2015": Only Israel's Problem?

As reported by Reuters (http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/04/20/us-iran-usa-missile-idUSTRE63J04H20100420):

"Iran may be able to build a missile capable of striking the United States by 2015, according to an unclassified Defense Department report on Iran's military sent to Congress and released on Monday.

'With sufficient foreign assistance, Iran could probably develop and test an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) capable of reaching the United States by 2015,' said the April report, a copy of which was obtained by Reuters.

. . . .

The timing of advances in Iran's long-range missile technology is being closely watched in Washington, which accuses Tehran of pursuing nuclear weapons and is pushing for a new round of sanctions. Iran denies the charges and says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

'Iran's nuclear program and its willingness to keep open the possibility of developing nuclear weapons is a central part of its deterrent strategy,' the report said.

The U.S. military tried and failed to shoot down a simulated Iranian missile strike on the United States in January, in a botched $150 million exercise over the Pacific Ocean."

Meanwhile, an imbecilic (I'm being kind) Catherine Ashton continues to manage the P5+1's "make believe" negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear weapons development program. Ashton is qualifed to undertake this job? Surely you jest! Have a look at the video of Ashton, filmed on her way to a meeting with Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic on his first official visit to Brussels.

Care to wake up, President Obama? Or when you declared to Iran that you "don't bluff" (http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2012/03/obama-to-iran-and-israel-as-president-of-the-united-states-i-dont-bluff/253875/), were you only bluffing?

Charming.
