Iran to world: We’ve got more missiles

By Daily Maverick Legacy 29 September 2009

Iran tested its most advanced missiles this week in two days of military exercises, raising international concerns and eliciting stronger pressure to come clean on its new nuclear site. The Revolutionary Guard, which controls Iran's missile programme, successfully tested upgraded versions of medium-range Shahab-3 and Sajjil missiles. Both can carry warheads and reach speeds of 2 000kph, putting Israel, US military bases in the Middle East and parts of Europe within striking distance. "Iranian missiles are able to target any place that threatens Iran," boasted Abdollah Araqi, a Revolutionary Guard commander.
