Iran Flexes Its Missile Muscle Again

FOX News reports that a senior commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard claimed his country is capable of building even longer-range missiles than it has at present, but they can hit American targets in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as Israel.

The missiles, he said, were specifically designed for Israeli and U.S. targets. Iran's known missiles of such range are the Shahab-3 and the Sajjil. Iran considers Israel and United States its top enemies.

A Pajamas Media article describes how rising tensions between Turkey and Iranian ally Syria has prompted the Islamic Republic to announce: "Iran’s resolve is as strong as a rock and defending Damascus is as much of a priority as defending Beirut and Tehran...." The Iranians also revealed what we have suspected for some time, that they have built some missile silos. Naturally, Turkish officials are highly displeased by these threats.
