Iran test-fires missile in Strait of Hormuz exercises

Iran test-fired a long-range, shore-to-sea missile on Monday, the final day of its naval exercises in the Strait of Hormuz, state-run media reported.

The Ghader missile was fired during the "power" stage of the maneuvers, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency. The test was successful, and the missile hit its intended targets, according to the report.

"A large number of the long-range surface-to-sea Ghader missiles have already been delivered to the Iranian Armed Forces," IRNA said.

    Now for the missile test. India & Pakistan do it routinely. M.East countries are also part of the arms race.
    We just contracted to sell fighter jets to Saudis for 30 billion dollars and Missile Defence System to UAE. Shipped 50 precision bunker busting bombs to Israel.
    Go figure.

    Current Chief of Mossad, considered to be one of the most efficient & deadliest spy agencies, Tamir Pardo had this to say.
    As reported by Israeli news Haar'etz, addressing a gathering of Israeli ambassadors last tuesday Tamir said" we are doing everything to foil Iranian nuclear programme but even if Iran goes nuke it would pose no existentialist threat to Israel".
    Ex-Mossad chief Meir Dagan has also been warning of overblown Iranian threat & asking those nuts in Tel Aviv to notch it down.

    I sure hope not @Dr.Ruffnut
    We have already brought great harm to ourselves during the two wars we were amboozled into, no more.

    I'm thinking the fear has to do with the mentality of the people developing them, rather than the people who already have them, that is causing the fear...you don't put a loaded gun into a homicidal maniac that gets off on violence and murder, do you?
