    Iran unveils new missiles, drones

    Tehran (AFP) - Iran on Sunday unveiled two new missiles and two new drones it said have been added to its arsenal, in a ceremony attended by President Hassan Rouhani.Related Stories








    The Ghadir (Mighty), with a range of 300 kilometres (185 miles), is a ground-to-sea and sea-to-sea missile, the official IRNA news agency said.
    It is in the same family as the Ghader or Qader cruise missile, which has a range of 200 kilometres.
    The other missile unveiled on Sunday, the Nasr-e Basir (Clear Victory), is equipped with a seeker homing head. Its range was not given.
    The new Karar-4 (Striker) drone can track and monitor enemy aircraft, the agency said, while the Mohajer-4 (Migrant) drone is designed to perform photographic and mapping missions.
    Iran has developed a major missile programme in addition to producing different types of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), including attack drones.
    The United States, whose Fifth Fleet is based in Sunni-ruled Bahrain across the Gulf from the mainly Shiite Islamic republic, has repeatedly expressed concern about these two programmes.
    Rouhani on Sunday sought to allay such fears.
    "Iran has no intention to interfere in, dominate or attack other countries or plunder their resources," he said in a speech broadcast on state television, adding that the country's military doctrine was defensive.
    "But at the same time we will stand up to any aggression," he added.

    One does get the impression that someone has taken his eye off the ball.

    Most of it doesn't. It's the other stuff that worries me.

    What do we wait for? An American city, or maybe Jerusalem to have a mushroom cloud over it?

    What do you suggest? Mindless criticism is easy to do. What action do you want? And do we rule what other countries do inside their countries? Is that our role?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You don't really care what I think, or want. That we have more, or better weapons means nothing if we allow first strike capability to the enemy. Surely you know that. Thousands, if not millions would die, but so what right? After all they are only Jews.

    More mindless right wing critism of the POTUS with no solutions, ideas or plans. Those missles might very well be made of plywood for all we know, Iran is big on propaganda. "They are only Jews"? Really. Strawman much?

    No sane person would look at Obama's use of drone technology to conduct assassinations throughout the middle east and expect that those in the middle east wouldn't look to acquire that same technology and potentially use it against US interests. The drone was designed as an instrument of war and should have been left in that arena. You often reap what you sow, and America may rue the time they let their President abuse this technology without any level of serious concern.
