BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – On Friday morning, the U.S. media reported that Iran test launched a medium-range ballistic missile within their own territory.

The Shahab-3, which was the missile allegedly tested, is reported to have a range of approximately 980 kilomters, proving Iran has the ability to target Israel from their own territory, the Avia.Pro publication reported on Friday.

“The distance between the borders of Iran and Israel is less than a thousand kilometers, which is direct evidence that the Iranian military can easily strike at Israel in case of open aggression by the latter. At the moment, Tehran shows restraint, however, given the presence of a huge number of ballistic missiles, if the Israeli side escalates the situation, Iran could easily launch hundreds of ballistic missiles,” Avia.pro reported, citing a military expert.

Avia.Pro said the military expert claimed that Iran possesses missiles capable of traveling as far as 2,000 kilometers.

Iranian officials have recently stated that if the Islamic Republic is targeted by the U.S. and their allies, they possess missile technology to target their bases in the Middle East region.

Since your racism has reached genocidal levels on this article a couple posts above, fantasizing about murdering 10 million Iranians and hoping they get nuked by Israel, what should we do of your statement ?

Damocles sword is hanging by just a thread over the balloon-headed zionists.

Will the zion occupiers be dumb enough to trigger their own demise? History says yes.

You know, it’s just a Scud… Saddam had shïtloads of Scuds in 1991, even with Sarin cluster-bombs… It didn’t prevented the total fiasco of his invasion of Kuwait and his demise in 2003… The non nuclear anti-ballistic missiles (ABM… There were nuclear ABMs since the end 50’s, usually with 1-10 kilotons warheads) were in their cradle in 1991. Intercepting things like Scud derivates is a piece of cake for Western technology… +++ “Will the zion occupiers be dumb enough to trigger their own demise?

Calm down, it’s cheap PR destined to the average citizen with zero military culture,a bit like you DoucheBag , so no need to get thus excitee over it. 1 – The Shahab series as a whole are getting completely phased out in favor of Ghadr and Fateh/Zulfiqar/Hormuz missiles,since their shelf-life getting closer to the end and their guidance method and resultinng accuracy is way too insufficient by current Iranian standards (something like 500m for the Shahab vs 30-50 m for the newer ones). 2 -the ones that are still usable are employed as penetration aids/decoys for saturation strikes where 1… Read more »

“Intercepting things like Scud derivates is a piece of cake for Western technology…” Less than 6% interception rates due to a flawed flight profile info computed into command centers, another fact you missed. “You know, it’s just a Scud… Saddam had shïtloads of Scuds in 1991, even with Sarin cluster-bombs… ” Ever heard of the infamous “Great Scud Hunt” in ’91 ? one of the most, if not THE most massive search and destroy efforts undertaken by a military coalition, US first in line of course. And that was crippled, defeated, encircled, 24/7 monitored Saddam’s post-debacle Iraq, by litteraly dozens… Read more »

– We’re no more in 1991. ABMs work great today. And there is no more need to hunt Scuds like in 1991 too… You don’t seem to know what’s in stores today. – No need to invade. Spending $5T on a shithole? Moreover, most of the spending was not for the invasion : it were contracts to neo-cons buddies for Iraq’s rebuilding etc… Doing a Gaddafi will be enough. 80% of Iranians want to hang the mullahs, let’s offer them this opportunity, and frankly, Iran exists for 2,500 years, we’ll avoid to bomb building companies, promised! – We can bill… Read more »

Houthis and their single Tochka of which a couple still went through early in the war in unitary strikes and killed 80 UAE soldiers in the barracks they hit ? They do saturation strikes in ABM testing now ? Congress must have missed your point since they still question the validity of all of… Read more »

They’ve just did a demonstration in Alaska. USAF did everything to have their missile avoiding Arrow-3. Wanna a little video? This is exoatmospheric interception, follow up with thermal cameras. https://twitter.com/AmichaiStein1/status/1155404378188275712 Boeing invested $1B in the Arrow-3. The missile is 8x cheaper than the RIM-161D block IIA, so 3 services are freaking interested. It’s also an anti-satellite weapon. When you can intercept objects moving at more than Mach24 (orbital speed), while ballistic missiles don’t go faster than Mach20, you’re OK. Arrow-3 will help building up an efficient AMB shield : the cost per unit is about the same as Patriot’s PAC-3… Read more »

Now, super clever dudes like you should also think about the consequences : what would happen if Israelis consider it’s a NBC/WMD attack? Even if they consider these are dirty-bombs, then they launch Jericho-III? It has enough payload for 3x W59 warheads+re-entry vehicles. A single of these : at least 5 millions dead in Tehran! And don’t even hope to stop a MIRV from and ICBM with S-300… Your beloved shitlamic republic, in retaliation for 300 launches at once, gets a single Jericho-III and the 3 biggest Iranian cities are hit, and the body count reaches 10 millions… Is it… Read more »

I see the rage is mounting even more, looks like I’m having more fun than intended 🙂 That would be the nail in your dignity’s coffin. You made my day with your genocidal rant. Now, just look at yourself for a minute, and see how demented a useful idiot you’ve become, how both ridiculous and ignorant you appear when speaking of a Nuclear Holocaust like it was nothing. The underlying racism of your neo-fascist jew supremacist ideology truly shows in colors, it’s amazing when we anger you enough into talking the true core of your murderous ideology.

+++” so I’ll say just that : you can’t do a “Gaddafi” on a country as wide and well-armed as Iran, the mere fact that you put the Iraqi and Lybian campaigns side-by-side with an Iranian showdown shows your usual intellectual ineptitude. O, the Next bullshit point.” >>> Yes, it can be done, and even much much worst! It can even turn to worst than Yemen.

“THIS IS REAL POLITIK” Err, Real Politik actually means restraint, measured response and careful assessment, not a nuclear first strike on a non-nuclear country like you nutjob keep on advocating, you seem to have got it upside down, like your brain. A good exmaple of that is actually Israel, yes, I will conceded that, their pragmatism is quite appreciable, beyond Bibi’s 19-year old rants about striking “tomorrow” and not moving an inch for as many years. “1296 missiles!” Again with the dumb rule of sums ! are you serious ? like they can all be fired against a single salvo… Read more »

Gryz : 1 – Obviously, your military culture is on the negative side, but I don’t wait more from a Gryzsome ayatoilets’ slave like you… 2 – Shabab CEP is 2,500m. Thank you about Ghadr and Fateh/Zulfiqar/Hormuz missiles, I know about these toys. Ghadr-110 is another Scud mod, so is Emad. I like the use of liquid fuel… Fateh/Zulfiqar/Hormuz missiles are nothing else than copies of 1964 Soviet technology Luna-M, so range about 300km makes them a bit out of the equation… Iron Dome is enough for these and has shot down more than one Fateh-110 Even if improved, these… Read more »

Nobody will get anything close to such mass-murder scenario,since people in charge on bot sides are smarter and have more mental sanity than the likes of Douchebag. That’s why they are in power at the top of their respective states,and DoucheBag is just spitting apocalyptic rage from behind his computer.
