Posted on August 4th, 2009

Iran Needs a Defense System Beyond Nuclear Umbrellas — Article published in Pars Times Greater Iran & Beyond and Right Side News As reported in The Tehran Times, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi recently said that “a defense umbrella is needed in the region to protect against the Zionist regime’s nuclear arsenals.” Israel has allegedly stockpiled over 200 nuclear warheads. Qashqavi asserts that elimination of Israeli nuclear weapons is the best guarantee for peace and security in the region.In their response to The Tehran Times article Dr. John Hagelin and Dr. David Leffler agree that elimination of nuclear weapons would be a good step. However, it is a step unlikely to be taken in the present hate-filled, high-tension political climate. They argue that Invincible Defense Technology would be a better choice because it is scientifically-validated means to reduce rising tensions in the Middle East.
