Iranium DVD

The movie Mahmoud Ahmadinejad doesn't want you to see

 

 

 

Riots in the Middle East, bloodshed and the overthrow of a Dictator. Does this sound like the Middle East in 2011?  Try 1979, the year the Shah was overthrown in Iran.  Is it possible history is about to repeat itself as Islamic Fundamentalists replace the Arab dictatorships of the Arab world?  What lessons can we learn from the Iranian revolution and the threat this nation currently poses to Israel and the Western world.

In this Documentary you will be taken back to the events of 1979 and the history of terrorism and conflict that has developed since then to bring Iran on it's current nuclear path.  You will learn about the EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse) threat to America, Iran's current treatment of it's own citizens and  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's obsession with the 12th Imam of Islam.

Although the Stuxnet virus may have slowed down it's nuclear program, it is only a matter of time before Iran crosses the nuclear threshold.  How will a nuclear Iran change the Middle East?  Saudi Arabia has already threatened to develop its own program (or buy one from Pakistan) in response. Iran's nuclear program could be one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century as the potential for nuclear devices to fall into the hands of terrorists increase.  This video will help you to see the emerging challenge we all face in a new urgency.  

Iran had attempted to shut down screenings of this movie in Canada but the Canadian government took a stand and showed this DVD despite the threats.  Find out why Iran is attempting to stop this movie from being seen around the world.

For a more detailed look at this DVD in relationship to current events we encourage you to watch Sean Hannity's interview with the producer here:

Russia Will Knock Out US Missile Shield Installations If Attacked

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
Moscow (Sputnik) Jul 23, 2015 - If attacked, Russia will respond with retaliatory strikes at US missile defense installations wherever they may be in the world, Russia's former Strategic Missile Forces' commander warned on Tuesday.

"Any military facility of the US global missile shield will become a primary target of a Russian counterattack in the event of a military aggression against this country," Viktor Yesin told RIA Novosti news agency.

The deployment of US missile defenses in Europe under the pretext of protecting America's European allies against an imaginary missile attack by Iran has been a major irritant in US-Russia relations.

Washington insists the European missile shield is not aimed against Russia, but refuses to provide any legal guarantees to Moscow that its missile defense systems in Europe are not directed at Russia's strategic nuclear deterrent.

US Awards $870Mln Contract to Develop Missile Defense Command System

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
Washington DC (Sputnik) Jun 25, 2015 - The C2BMC is an operational system that enables the US President, Defense Secretary and combatant commanders to conduct ballistic missile defense planning, according to the Defense Department.

"[Lockheed Martin] has been awarded a maximum $870,000,000... [to develop] the command and control, battle management and communications [C2BMC] system located worldwide for the Ballistic Missile Defense System," the release said on Monday.

The development of the C2BMC, the release explained, will enhance US homeland defense while meeting requirements for the planned deployment of BMD systems to NATO allies, referred to as the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA).

Lockheed Martin plans to perform the development in Arlington, Virginia; Huntsville, Alabama; and Colorado Springs, Colorado, with an expected completion date of December 31, 2021, the release added.

C2BMC integrates globally deployed sensors, radars, satellites and interceptors into a single network, providing commanders with a unified picture of missile threats across the globe, according to an earlier Lockheed Martin press release.

In March 2015, a Defense Department spokesperson announced that EPAA will include deployment of anti-ballistic missiles and BMD systems to Romania in 2015 and Poland in 2018.

US authorities are reportedly considering deploying missiles to Europe to counter Russia's alleged violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. Russian officials have pointed out that US missile defense launchers stationed in Poland and Romania are violations of the INF treaty.

US Authorizes 'Forward-Based' Missile Defense System for Allies

Washington (Sputnik) Jun 17, 2015 - US defense industry giant Raytheon said that the US government authorized its allies to purchase missile defense radars for use in forward-based mode for early threat detection. The US government authorized its allies to purchase missile defense radars for use in forward-based mode for early threat detection, US defense industry giant Raytheon said in a press release on Monday.

"The US government has authorized several US allies and security partners to potentially purchase via Foreign Military Sales the Raytheon-made AN/TPY-2 ballistic missile defense radar, for use in forward-based mode," the release stated.

In forward-based mode, the release explained, the transportable radar system is positioned near hostile territory so it can detect ballistic missiles in the ascent phase shortly after they are launched.

The AN/TPY-2 will allow US allies to enhance defensive capabilities and improve the performance of existing capabilities such as the Patriot air defense system, the release said.

Raytheon's announcement comes as senior US officials are reportedly contemplating potential responses to alleged Russian violations of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

The Cold War-era INF Treaty prohibits testing, possessing or producing medium-range ground-based cruise and nuclear missiles.

The United States has accused Russia of conducting test flights of cruise missiles in violation of the Cold War-era INF Treaty. The Treaty prohibits testing, possessing or producing medium-range ground-based cruise and nuclear missiles.

One of the options US officials are considering is to deploy missiles to Europe to defend against any advantage Russia might gain from a ground-based system, or a more aggressive "counterforce" of ground-based strategic weapons or cruise missiles.

Russia claims NATO's ballistic missile defense and the US use of certain drones are a violation of the INF treaty.

USAF Early Warning Satellites Get No-Cost Update from Lockheed Martin

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
Sunnyvale CA (SPX) Jun 11, 2015 - The U.S. Air Force's newest infrared surveillance and missile warning satellites will be based on Lockheed Martin's modernized A2100 spacecraft, an update that improves system affordability and resiliency while also adding the flexibility to use future payloads. The fifth and sixth Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellites will receive this advanced spacecraft technology at no additional cost to the existing fixed-price contract.

The SBIRS program is responsible for America's early missile warning and infrared surveillance missions, which are crucial to global security.

In response to the Department of Defense's need for more affordable and resilient systems, the Air Force and Lockheed Martin worked to add the A2100 bus update to the 2014 SBIRS block-buy contract, which already saved the Air Force more than $1 billion. The modernized A2100 adds further affordability by using common components, streamlined manufacturing and has a flexible design that reduces the cost to incorporate future, modernized sensor suites.

"Through the leadership of the Air Force's Space and Missile Systems Center, we have been working to address the Department of Defense's Better Buying Power and Bending the Cost Curve initiatives to deliver more value per dollar on this vital national security system," said David Sheridan, Lockheed Martin vice president and SBIRS program manager.

"SBIRS has been providing outstanding global coverage for the Air Force, and migration to the modernized A2100 will help keep SBIRS ahead of America's adversaries while dramatically reducing costs and cycle times."

The modernized A2100 builds on a flight-proven bus that is the foundation for more than 40 satellites in orbit today. Through an internally-funded, multi-year modernization effort, Lockheed Martin has enhanced the spacecraft's power, propulsion and electronics, while also adopting the latest advanced manufacturing techniques to decrease production costs and timelines.

 

 

Kremlin Focuses on Alleged US Plans to Aim Missiles at Russia's Nukes

Moscow, Russia (Sputnik) Jun 09, 2015 - Moscow is paying much attention to US press reports about Washington's possible deployment of nuclear missiles that can threaten Russia's nuclear potential.

Mocow has directed much of its attention on US press reports about Washington's possible deployment of nuclear missiles capable of threatening Russia's nuclear potential and will first analyze them before making any assessments, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

"Of course, we paid attention to these reports from the press. We first need to analyze these reports, this information before we give any type of assessment, but we have of course placed much attention on these reports," Peskov told journalists.

Earlier media reports suggested that the United States was considering deploying missile systems in Europe as a response to an alleged violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty by Moscow.

The United States is suspecting Russian authorities of testing ground-launched cruise missiles with a range that is not allowed by the treaty.

The INF Treaty bans nuclear and conventional ground-based cruise and ballistic missiles with ranges of 500-5,500 kilometers (310-3,400 miles).

Russia, in its turn, has reminded of alleged violations of the treaty by the United States by placing missile defense launchers in Poland and Romania, which, in Moscow's view, could be used to deploy Tomahawk cruise missiles.

Germany opts for MEADS missile defence system

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
Berlin (AFP) June 9, 2015 - The German government has decided to buy the MEADS missile defence system built by European defence group MBDA and Lockheed Martin, instead of the Patriot system made by Raytheon, the defence ministry announced on Tuesday.

German media reports put the value of the contract at several billions of euros.

After long years of deliberation, the German army finally opted for the next-generation Medium Extended Air Defence System (MEADS) made by MBDA, which is a consortium that includes Italy's Finmeccanica SpA, Airbus Group and Britain's BAE Systems Plc, the ministry said in a statement.

It will replace by 2025 the current Patriot system, used by Germany since 1989.

US-based Raytheon had also been in the bidding for the new contract, with an updated version of Patriot.

The number of units that the German army wants to buy was not yet disclosed, but media reports put it at eight or ten.

German news agency DPA said Berlin had already poured four billion euros into the project's development and could invest "three or four billion euros more."

MEADS is a mobile surface-to-air missile system designed to ward off attacks from tactical ballistic missiles and aircraft.

In 2014, developers announced that a MEADS unit had a 360-degree firing arc, and so could successfully deflect simultaneous rocket attacks from different directions.

The choice, taken against a backdrop of budget cutbacks within the army, angered the opposition, with the far-left Linke party slamming it as a "new waste of billions of taxpayers' money," while the environmentalist Green party said the government was "throwing money out of the window."

The decision comes at a time of mounting criticism of the Bundeswehr's faulty and outdated equipment.

Even its standard G36 assault rifle was revealed to have serious technical flaws.

Recent media reports revealed serious problems with several types of aircraft crippling Germany's military abilities at a time when the country is considering greater international engagement.

 

 

Northrop's battle command system brings down ballistic missile target

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
White Sands Missile Range, N.M. (UPI) May 28, 2015 - The integrated air and missile defense Battle Command System downed a ballistic missile in its first flight test by Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Army.

The test on Thursday was conducted using the IAMD BCS, a Patriot system radar and two adapted Patriot launchers connected at the component level to the IBCS integrated fire control network, Northrop Grumman said.

Using measurement data from the Patriot radar, the IBCS track manager established a composite track on the ballistic missile, the IBCS mission control software assessed the track as a threat and presented an engagement solution. The engagement operations center operator then used the IBCS mission control software to command the launches of two Patriot PAC-2 interceptor missiles to destroy the target in flight.

"IBCS is crucial to the Army vision for an IAMD C2 [command and control] capability across all echelons and AMD assets, including joint systems," said Brig. Gen. (P) L. Neil Thurgood, Army program executive officer, Missiles and Space. "The success of IBCS allows our ability to acquire needed radars and interceptors to plug into our architecture without having to buy entire systems and to optimize the sensor/shooter relationship to the target.

"Additionally, IBCS allows for a single AMD C2 that is tailorable at every echelon and reduces the training burden while enhancing mission success."

Northrop Grumman's IBCS is to replace seven legacy command-and-control systems to provide a single integrated air picture, reduce single points of failure and offer the flexibility for deployment of smaller force packages. The networking sensors and interceptors – instead of linking them -- provides wider area surveillance and broader protection areas.

IBCS's open systems architecture allows integration of current and future sensors and weapon systems and enables interoperability with joint C2 and the U.S. ballistic missile defense system.

 

 

US Defense Department to Deploy Radar in Alaska to Protect Pacific Coast

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
Moscow (Sputnik) May 28, 2015 - The Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) will tentatively be deployed in the US state of Alaska to improve defense capabilities of the US west coast, the US Department of Defense said in a statement.

"Clear Air Force Station, an Air Force Space Command radar station located in central Alaska, has been tentatively identified as the preferred location for the LRDR," the statement, issued on Friday, said.

The Department of Defense added that the new radar will "increase the capacity of the ground-based midcourse defense inventory of interceptors in Alaska and California."

The LRDR will also serve as a midcourse sensor for the US Ballistic Missile Defense System and will help to better address potential countermeasures.

The radar, which is pending completion of required environmental and safety studies, is scheduled to start working in 2020, according to the statement.

The final decision on the radar's location will be made after the environmental impact analysis has been completed, the Defense Department added.

In June 2014, US Missile Defense Agency Vice Admiral James Syring said the radar project is "absolutely vital" to the United States amid military threats and rhetoric coming from North Korea.

US Aegis Ships Could Pose Threat to Russia

 
‎23 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎07:44:40 AMGo to full article
Moscow (Sputnik) May 25, 2015 - Russian Embassy to Washington Counselor Alexander Trofimov says that US Navy Aegis ships based in Europe could secretly carry cruise missiles threatening Russia.

US Navy Aegis ships based in Europe could secretly carry cruise missiles threatening Russia, Russian Embassy to Washington Counselor Alexander Trofimov told a Congressional roundtable discussion on missile defense in Europe in the US Congress.

"Aegis can fire [anti-ballistic missile] interceptors and attack [cruise] missiles like the Tomahawk," Trofimov said on Wednesday.

Trofimov explained the defensive interceptors and offensive Tomahawk cruise missiles would be vertically deployed on the ships, making it difficult for air or space reconnaissance to identify them.

On May 1, 2015, the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Porter joined two other destroyers, USS Donald Cook and USS Ross, at the Naval Station Rota in Spain as part of the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) to ballistic missile defense (BMD).

A fourth Arleigh Burke-class warship, the USS Carney, will join them later in 2015.

All four ships have had their Aegis combat systems upgraded to handle BMD threats.

Trofimov said the deployment was continuing without any US-Russian dialogue to address Moscow's concerns that it was threatening the power balance in Europe.

"The new missile defense deployment is not just about missile defense. It is about threats to strategic stability," the diplomat said.

US President Barack Obama approved the EPAA in 2009. The EPAA uses mobile radars and interceptors mounted on Aegis-class Ticonderoga-class cruisers and Arleigh Burke-class destroyers.

US, NATO Have 'No Plans' to Place Missile Defense Systems in Ukraine

 
‎09 ‎July ‎2015, ‏‎10:16:57 AMGo to full article
Moscow (Sputnik) May 22, 2015 - Ukrainian National Security Service Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said earlier on Wednesday that Ukraine may hold consultations to place missile defense systems on its territory to ensure security against nuclear threats.

"I don't think we are exactly sure what they were referring to," Harf said. "NATO ballistic missile defense plans are well-known. All existing and planned elements are on NATO territory."

NATO's missile defense is not directed against Russia, but against threats from the Middle East, Harf said.

"There is no offer or plan to place US or NATO ballistic missile defense systems in Ukraine."

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said that if Ukraine deployed elements of US missile defense systems on its territory, then Russia would need to respond in order to ensure its own security.
