Iran, now TODAY, has missiles that put Europe in range


This is a 1936 Luftwaffe Alert

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Iran has received a first shipment of missiles from North Korea that are capable of reaching Europe, Israel's military intelligence chief was quoted on Thursday as saying.

Known in the West as BM-25s, the Russian-designed missiles have a range of around 1,500 miles, giving them a longer reach than the Iranian-made Shihab-4 missiles which are capable of hitting Israel.

The intelligence chief, Major-General Amos Yadlin, was quoted by Israel's Haaretz newspaper as saying in a lecture on Wednesday that some BM-25s had arrived in Iran.

The BM-25 was originally manufactured in the Soviet Union, where it was known as the SSN6, a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, Haaretz reported.

North Korea doesn’t act without support from Russia and China. Can we deny that Russia and China wants Iran to be a thorn in our side? And can we deny that they desire that we suffer military and political pain? Since the Communist sponsorship of Arab terrorism back in the 1960s to the Russian (and French) backing of Saddam, we have seen foreign powers exploit Arab and Islamic causes to fight us through proxies.

It’s time to change our policy with regard to our so-called “friends.” This includes trade status and pressure on our allies to follow suit.

This is more than thorn in the side. Iran is the real deal. They mean it. A few million american causalties, and a crippled economy might be something the Russians and Chines think would not hurt their interests.

I've never understod why the chinese weren't more help with NK. I get it now. Let's just urge the Japanese to have a nuclear self defense force.
And the Aussies.

If they have the missiles then they have the warheads.
