Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says the U.S. president is following “anti-Islamic and anti-Iranian” policies.”

“On Thursday, President Obama said the … “new missile defense architecture in Europe” will be ready faster, work with existing technology and provide better missile defense than the program proposed by former President George W. Bush, Obama said.”

“Obama said the change of gears was based on an “updated intelligence assessment” about Iran’s ability to hit Europe with missiles. The Islamic republic’s “short- and medium-range” missiles pose the most current threat, he said, and “this new ballistic missile defense will best address” that threat.

“The new system will have “hundreds” of missile interceptors instead, a Pentagon official said last week.It also will have mobile radars, including some in space…” (emphasis mine)
