    I think it's what I said in the other thread about this. Ahmy is bluffing a little bit to appear to get a little clout on the wolrd stage. Kind of like what Saddam was doing by insisting they had nuclear weapons when they didn't really. One or two added missles might not make a difference to us, but maybe Iran thought it would make them appear more powerful.

    I only breezed through an article about it, but it appeared to read that the doctored pic was taken from an Iranian site. So the western press wasn't responsible for the distortion. In looking at the original, I saw a missle launcher (truck) about where the doctored missle was added. So it could be that they added a missle that didn't take off.

    Original version?

    In looking at these two photo's, you can see that they weren't taken at the same time. The trajectory, and/or altitude of the missles is different in each pic. The missles are a little further along in the top pic, than they are in the bottom pic.

    Uh... they are still able to launch missiles though. That's all that matters here. And it's been confirmed by our intelligence that the missiles were successfully test fired at areas medium and long range. They would be able to hit Israel easily.

    The world can't afford another nuclear weapons race. This may sound wrong, but I really don't think it is...No country that does not have nuclear weapons should be allowed to have them. I strongly believe that. No matter which country it is. It may not be "fair" but too sh1t. At least the countries that do have them have proven themselves. Of course I'd love to them all go away. Nothing but nightmares are created with nuclear weapons.

    I wish it was never invented.

    If it was never invented, you may not be alive today. Research showed the Americans would have suffered over one million casualties by invading Japan. This would directly effect many of us if it had happened.

    Yeah, and if we end up with just one nuclear attack in the future, it will cancel out that one good thing. To me, it would have been wortht the trade.

    Just think about all the money the US, Soviet Union & China has WASTED...flushed down the toilet because of nuclear weaponry. I know I didn't deserve to have to hide my head between my legs at the age of 6 during "atomic bomb drills".

    I'm not saying they may have kept some peace either...I just hate them. Hell, I'm like any other sane human being...I HATE WAR.

    Don't take my comment as if I'm defending increased nuclear production. I'm not. And I never will. However, I won't blame a future nuclear incident on the nuke itself or on Albert Einstein for inventing the theory. Instead, I will blame it on the country that couldn't control itself (Iran) and had to launch one against it's enemy (Israel). This is why we should be stopping Iran dead in their tracks before the missiles become more powerful.

    I agree with you,I wish that they were never invented. When I was a kid we never did duck and cover under our desks. (Kindergarten was 1960) What was the point. I grew up maybe five miles as the crow flies fron the largest S.A.C. base on the East coast,which was also the HQ's for the 8th Air force at the time. On top of that was the underground HQ's for Norad (eventually replaced by Chyanee Mt, CO. Talk about living at ground Zero. Getting Nuked was one of the things I thought about a lot as a kid. Through the centuries one person after another thought "this wapon is so terrible it will stop wars from being fought" Well in a twisted way maybe this one IS the weapon so hideous that once possed the owner thinks about what they truly have and what could happen. At leat i hope so.

    Nice! Wouldn't it have been awesome if we could have taken over the controls and headed those missles towards president Ahmadinejad's house?
