iran's new missiles

I just read that Iran now has surface to surface missiles capable of hitting europe thanks to north korea. Given that Iran is...well Iran, I'm stunned that the european countries have no response to this. Do they just not care or are they so screwed up that they can't coordinate any response?

Response to NK? Get real, it is a free market afterall.

It's not like we would sell any missiles/technlogy to a small country close to Europe to advance our cause or create a "deterent" now would we?

Besides, Iran is going to get stuffed by the US/Israel contingency with the blessing of just about everyone.



Strength without compassion is brutality. Compassion without strength is weakness.

We must train our minds to desire what the situation demands.

I'm betting we won't do anything militarily.

Note to youze guys:
North Korean missles are based on Chinese designs. Which are based on Soviet and US designs.
So are Pakistani ICBM's

North Korea is a front for China in this case.

Deterence still plays a role here somewhere.

You wipe off the map a tiny little country, they, with their new
intel-sat (lauched by Russia...for $$$ .... Hmmm....) will be able
to see them coming, and launch Jerichos (or better) on
warning, and at least know that nothing will be left of the
"launcher's capitol cities" in the end.

The nuke club is 9 (minus 1) - and the facts, though I dislike both
Iran and NK applying for membership, that a single ballistic missile
submarine is the 6th most powerful entity on the planet, (either of US or
UK flag - which is still an Ohio class deriv, as are the Tridents used), behind
the US, Russia, the UK, a Russian boomer, China and France.

French boomers would lag to #8, behind China, at #7, with Israel, picking
up #9 honors, a Chinese boomer of any variety in #10, and India and
Pakistan #'s 11 and 12, with their puny 5-6kt duds (of 20kt design).

8 players, 12 spots.

South Africa's JV with Israel is no longer in the game. Nuclear spears were
outlawed in 1990 on the African continent.

(it's just a joke people!!! Robert Mugabe used guns too!)

Just as France, the rest of the EU will be there for us when they need us.

Are you referring to the revolutionary war? When the French bailed us out?
