This whole Iran thing is bizarre. They’ve tested another long-range missile. Just in December the national security advisor’s spokesman put out a statement saying that testing long-range missiles crossed the line in our talks, and the White House contradicted it.
Nothing to see here, right? What does Obama think these guys want to do with these missiles, put the first Muslimnauts on the moon?
Iran‘s official news agency says the country has successfully test-fired two missiles, including a long-range ballistic weapon.
The Monday report by IRNA described the missiles as a “new generation,” but did not make clear if they were new designs or upgrades of existing ones.
It said the ballistic missile had radar-evading capabilities, but did not give a name. It said the second missile was called Bina, or “Insightful,” and was laser-guided. It said it could be fired from the ground or from aircraft.
Iran has pursued military self-sufficiency since 1992. From time to time it announces military achievements, most of which cannot be independently verified.
Iran already has surface-to-surface missiles with a range about 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles), capable of reaching Israel and the U.S. military bases in the region. [Haaretz]
Can we all agree that these people should not be allowed to have sharp scissors, much less weapons that can carry a warhead 1,300 miles?
And we’re ‘watching closely‘?
Call me old fashioned, but when someone threatens to destroy me, I go all badass in a hurry.
