Iran tests missile

"President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran test-fired a new advanced missile Wednesday with a range of about 1,200 miles, far enough to strike Israel, southern Europe and U.S. bases in the Middle East."

America's response?

"The announcement will not reassure the U.S. government, coming just two days after President Barack Obama declared a readiness to seek deeper international sanctions against Iran if it shunned U.S. attempts to open negotiations on its nuclear program. Obama said he expected a positive response to his outreach for opening a dialogue with Iran by the end of the year."

"Deeper international sanctions" and "outreach for opening a dialogue" won't stop nuclear armed Iranian missiles from killing Israelis, southern Europeans and U.S. troops based in the Middle East.
