Iran’s New Upgraded Missile Test is Clear Indication of Atomic Weapon Ambitions

December 16, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Continuing it’s program of alternate acts of conciliatory gestures and shows of force, Iran announced that it test fired a faster, more accurate version of its long-range solid-fuel missile. The Sajil-2 is a high-speed, surface-to-surface missile that has radar-evading ability,” according to Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi’s televised statement. The Sajil-2, Iran’s most advanced missile, has a 1,200 mile range that could reach Israel, as well as targets as far away as southeastern Europe. Iran has now gone from liquid-fueled single-stage rocket, to advanced two-stage, surface-to-surface missiles, powered entirely by solid fuel, which increases the weapon’s accuracy, in mere months. Military analysts say the upgraded version includes mobile launch platforms also makes it difficult to target in air strikes. Coupled with its nuclear ambitions, it seems clear that Iran’s hard push to master missile technology, is aimed at ultimately producing atomic weapons, which is a very scary scenario facing the west.

    The idea of Iran with atomic weapons ought to terrify Iranians; if they have nukes on mobile launch platforms, the West’s only option will be to use nukes to take out the launch crews before Iran can launch.

    And considering their previous performance, “increased accuracy” probably means they can hit the ground now.
