Iran warns US, Britain of reprisals

We have a real problem developing in Persia. Iran appears to be trying to hold the United States, Great Britian, and the rest of the free world hostage and the leftists, apologists, appeasers, and Dhimmis are playing their fiddles as Nero did when Roma burned. Iran's Revolutionary Guard Chief, Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi, has warned the United States and Britian that it will attack with missiles, if it is attacked. And, they have the Shahab-3 missiles to deliver Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). Here are some intimate details about the Shahab-3 that you will not find in the mainstream media (MSM)

The Iranian Shahab-3/Zelzal-3 [alternatively designated Zelzal (Earthquake)] missile is said to be a derivative of the 1,000-1,300 kilometer range North Korean Nodong-1.

It is interesting to note that the Nodong missile was developed by North Korea with Iranian financial assistance.

The Shahab-3 missile can have a 500kg-650kg warhead. The range is believed to be 1550km-1620km (based on performance data of the No-dong B). More specifically it is believed that with a warhead mass of 760kg the missile will fly 1560km and with a warhead mass of 1158kg the missile will fly 1350km. Although not verified this data would seem to indicate that they are working on the Shahab-4 with a 2000km+ range and would be a derivative of the Taepo-dong 1. In late July 2005 Iranian Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani said the Shihab-3 contained a range of 1,930 kilometers, a major increase from the previous version of the missile, which had a range of 1,300 kilometers. He said the Shihab-3 developed and tested in 2004 significantly increased the range of the missile. Shamkhani was quoted by Radio Farda as saying that the liquid-fuel Shihab could also be fitted with a nuclear warhead. Technical information regarding the Shahab-3 was obtained through Global Security.Org

The Shahab-3 is a direct threat to our military forces in the Middle East, Isreal, and also a direct threat to developing countries of the region.
