Iran begins war games, ahead of August 22Topics: Iran
Is Iran's President Ahmadinejad making plans for August 22, or just 'getting "ready to thwart" all "plots" against the Islamic Republic' because they believe 'no army in the world could match Iran's regular armed forces, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and its affiliated organs'. The war games begin this weekend, but Iran has made sure everyone understands that they have no date set to end these maneuvers.
AKI reports that Teheran is to begin, on Saturday, a series of missile launch tests ... The missiles being launched from border provinces is designed to maxmize the range. If they were launched from central Iran each missile would have to travel at least 500 miles before it left the country. Since there is no chance of any pre-emptive strike against Iran by the time the intended targets realize what has happened it would have been to late.
Iran seems to have two missiles ready, the Shahab - 3, 1,200 mile range and the Shahab-4 of approximately 2,000 miles, though I have no idea of how many of each. The Shahab - 4 could perhaps reach Berlin, the main financial and industrial supporter of Moscow's war effort. Both missiles have been manufactured in Iran for at least two years.
