Iranian Missiles Possibly Can carry Nukes

Iran now has ballistic missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads, according to military experts. While Tehran denies it is trying to develop a nuclear arsenal, ballistic missile experts advising the United States say it has succeeded in reconfiguring the Shahab-3 ballistic missile to carry nuclear weapons, the London Telegraph reports.

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

"This is a major breakthrough for the Iranians," said a senior U.S. official, according to the London paper. "They have been trying to do this for years and now they have succeeded. It is a very disturbing development." World Net Daily link to the article: Iranian Missiles can carry Nukes
