Oh Golly: Iran Now Has Nuke-Capable Missles…

…that can reach Europe:

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 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.

But they just need them for peaceful purposes.

    Spiffy, too.
    And we’ll hear a big “zoinks!” when they launch one…

  3. Gotta have something to tie to the centrifuge to get that sucker spinning…

    You’re about to hear hysterical screams of fear from Europe as they cave in and pay off the Iranians and insist that we leave Iran alone.

    Not that I disagree with anyone here (myself, I expect that the mad mullahs are finalizing their target list now), but I have to wonder……
    If these are old Soviet missiles purchased from North Korea (who probably lacks funds for decent maintenance, which is why they are selling ordinance in the first place), just how reliable are these missiles? A quick Google check indicates these were sold to NoKo maybe 10-15 years ago. I’d guess they weren’t factory fresh then.
    OTOH, I’m sure Putin will send technicians to service the missiles. At cost with a hefty commission, of course.

    I am not the least bit concerned about those Iranian “missles”…
    Ok, I’m bored…Mr. Bingley don’t judge me too harshly 🙂

    Ah heck, we’re outside their effective range, Mash! No worries 🙂
