Scaring Tehran

This announcement from the Pentagon should make the Mullahs shake in their sandals:
U.S. officials say the Pentagon is planning to shoot down a broken spy satellite expected to hit the Earth in early March. (WSJ)
It's just a bulletin now; a full story will follow.

If the mission is successful (which it should be) and the whole world gets to watch us blast a falling satellite out of the sky, leaders of rogue nations developing missile delivery systems will have scratch their evil-filled heads and reconsider their efforts to take down the shining city on a hill.

Sure, a satellite is not a missile -- but let's see the Mullahs or L'il Kim Jong Il try to pull of this mission!
