Iran Develops Ballistic Missiles for its Peaceful Nuclear Program


Peaceful nuclear energy in our time

No peaceful nuclear program, complete with Obama-backed enrichment, can be complete without ballistic missiles. A nuclear energy program without ballistic missiles is like a house without a giant cannon mounted on top or a shopping bag that isn’t wrapped in razor blades.

Now we all know that Iran’s nuclear program is entirely peaceful. There are perfectly good reasons why the 4th largest oil producer in the world and the 2nd largest oil producer in the Middle East would need a nuclear energy program. It’s the same reason Eskimos keep buying artificial ice. Because they just don’t have enough of the real thing.

And now Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy program will get even more peaceful with ballistic missiles that will uh carry the energy from its peaceful nuclear energy program… long distances… using kinetic energy to immediately transfer…

Let Obama explain it. “Diplomacy opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure — a future in which we can verify that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful and that it cannot build a nuclear weapon.”

And nothing is as peaceful as ballistic missiles.

A top Iranian military leader announced late Tuesday that Iran has developed “indigenous” ballistic missile technology, which could eventually allow it to fire a nuclear payload over great distances.

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the lieutenant commander of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), made the critical weapons announcement just days after Iran and the West signed a deal aimed at curbing the country’s nuclear activities.

Salami claimed that “Iran is among the only three world countries enjoying an indigenous ballistic missile technology,” according to the state-run Fars News Agency.

“Many countries may have access to cruise missiles technology, but when it comes to ballistic missiles, I am confident that only the U.S. and the [former] Soviet Union could master this technology, and now we can announce that we own this technology as well,” Salami told Fars.

What could Iran possibly want with ballistic missiles? Maybe they want to conduct diplomacy by firing peace notes and doves in ballistic missiles at their new friends.

    Come on man, everyone knows you deliver electricity produced by nuclear energy by ballistic missiles and not high tension transmission lines!

    In a decades time, Iran will have a couple of hundred of nuclear-tipped ICBMs capable of reaching anywhere. It’s a brave new world.

    Nothing says “Islam is a religion of peace” like ballistic missiles and nukes.

      You can say the same about any country/religion.

      Nothing says America is a peaceful nation like being able to nuke the world and actually did Nuke 2 cities. See how easy that was

    Good to see Iran entering into “Peaceful Nuclear Program” and congrats to Iran as they become the third nation to develop Ballistic Missiles which can carry Nuke’s. Hopefully they don’t use it to mass destruction but these missiles are meant to carry nukes though. Iran should also keep in mind that there are many countries which have Ballistic missiles system, they may not have developed them but they are catching up now. Here is a list of top 10 countries which have longest range Ballistic missiles. Countries like India, china have started working on developing their own Missile technology they may soon develop indigenous Ballistic Missiles. It seems countries racing to get more and more weapons of destruction and tagging it with the word “PEACE” … May god bless the world

    “Hossein Salami?” Are you $hitting me? Hahaha! No wonder Obama loves these guys.

    3 basic assumptions about this “peace deal”

    1. The U.S. has limited intelligence/knowledge of what Iranian capabilities are. We just do not know the extent or capabilities of their programs.

    2. The Iranians are no different than the North Koreans; they have
    cheated on agreements in the past and it should be expected that they will
    cheat in the future.

    3. Given 1 and 2, any agreement that doesn’t begin with rigorous on-site,
    unannounced inspections is likely to fail.
