They can reach pretty much everyone in the middle east now. Big focus is on Israel since they've not gotten along lately.

Usually missle tests are a nations way of flexing its muscles. Iran hasn't made any threats to use them. But I believe Iran and Turkey aren't too bad on terms, both being muslim nations. I think the only beef Iran would have with Turkey is the invasions into Iraq they've been doing.

Also I believe this possibly rushed due to the US announcement of a new missle shield program in eastern asia.

You're right, they're just trying to seem tough. If they ever used missles on a country such as Turkey, whom they really have no qualms with, the results would be disasterous. No worries there, Luxzorz. Now if you lived in Israel, then maybe they'd shoot you...

Iran is actually proving they want to be the "leader" in the middle east. Ever since Saddam was taken out they've been making their steps known publicly. They used to be all hush hush about what they do but since Ahmadinejad took office in 2005 he's been a vocal and visual leader in the region. What Iran does in the region effects us slightly because of our intrests in other areas (Saudi Arabia and Kuwait).

Why do I get the feeling that someone somewhere is adjusting the Doomsday Clock to closer than five minutes to midnight?
Well I'm glad someone else knows what the doomsday clock is. And you sir are probably right. They don't change the time often (they changed it sometime last year from 7 minutes, I believe, to 5) but i'd say we are maybe 4 and half to midnight now.

if a ww3 starts id rather let it hit me in the back rather than running around in circles and thinking of when it would happen.

Actually, most of the missiles/rockets the Iraqi forces had, were old cold war Romanian developed ones.

But, as far as I know, Romania doesn't have a leader who threatens other contries with obliteration. Ahmadinejad has vocally stated his stance with Israel.

For your notice, before WW2 fucked our country up, Romania was the 4th most developed European Country (after the UK, Germany and France). We had the biggest Petrol Industry, the largest grain harvest and the biggest car industry in Europe, but WW2 and communism fucked that.

There Shouldn't Even Be A Disscussion On This Topic, The Moment Iran Attacks Israel The Hebrew Hammer Is Gonna Go Fuck Them Up.

But Really, If Iran Ever Attacks With Their Like 1 Nuclear Misse, They Are Gonna Get About 250 Nuclear Missles Comming Right Back At Them.

What Iran has said is that if they are attacked the U.S. ships in the Persian gulf, the U.S. itself and Israel will be set on fire. Then they test these missles. So basically a clear and concise warning.

No, its a funny example of fail. Iran is basically the retarded kid on the playground that likes to climb the monkey bars on the top, and yell and scream that if anyone tries to use the monkey bars, he'll stomp their fingers and theyll fall. Eventually though, a mob of people get together, knock him off the bars at an odd angle so his leg breaks, and then pummel him with short bricks.

As for Romania, I realize their history, it is a sad one, because they, as well as several other East European countries were doing okay before the plague from the East came. However, if Jew and a few others come in, you'll hear em tell you about the joys of socialism, and how much better off romania was morally. It will be quite the hoot.

I for one, like Romanians, especially the chick I met at grad-night back in 2001. I like my Eastern Europeans communism free as well.

Back to iran.

Iran IS a theocracy, but not by any means of choice. The Mullahs and the Ayatollah-Assahola are religious at their convenience, the rest of the time, the country seems to be run like a 3rd world version of beirut, lebanon, before the dickheads got religious. "Imanutjob" is just another khomeini wannabe that will scream and cry while a GOP man is in the white house, and take hostages the second that hootie jenkins was to make it into the white house. Iran knows one thing about the US, generally Carter, democrats since FDR, are soft on their coups, religious revolutions, and generalized bullshit.

I dont think its a warning, I think its an Emo kid screaming that he can't go to the suffocate me dry concert.

This shit has been done before nothing really to worry about. It was just only a few years ago that North Korea was firing their missiles and hell China likes to launch a couple off themselves. China is ballsy enough to launch their missiles over Taiwan.

If anything serious is gonna happen in the region, its Israel doing a strategic bombing on Iran. They've pulled off crazy shit like that in the past.

I fear, though, that if Israel do anything like that nowadays then it would simply be a catalyst.

Agreed. I really don't think they will do anything with the military. They might issue statments or political sanctions but we know that is like shaking fist at them. Since Israel had to deal with Hamas last year or the year before I think they'd like to avoid conflict.

I have to write a "National Security Plan" for this specific issue actually, should I:
A) Wait until after aggression towards another nation, then launch tactical strikes via B2 Spirits on Iranian launch sites and secure the bases with a combined attack with airborne and mountain assault forces.
B) Give an "eye for an eye" ultimatum, stating any and all nuclear and missile attacks will be met with greater force.
C) Constant surveillance of possible bases of operation for uranium enrichment plants, and missile launch sites.
D) Stand back and laugh and direct budget towards securing customs duties for commercial barges.
E) My personal thoughts: Combined C and B, but simply stick a few Patriot Missile batteries along the Gaza Strip under UN Peace Keeper supervision.

July 9: This photo, circulated in media outlets around the world, appears to have been altered to show an extra missile.

According to The Times, AFP reportedly obtained the photo from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's media Web site, Sepah News, on Wednesday. The photo ran on the covers of major media outlets around the world before anyone noticed the apparent error.

"They had a rocket launch and one failed," Fitzpatrick said. "They have had other tests that have succeeded, but Iran tends to exaggerate its capabilities."

There was no immediate comment from Iranian officials on the photos.

"The whole purpose of these launches was to demonstrate Iran's capabilities and a photo showing one out of four rockets failing doesn't have the intended impact," Fitzpatrick said
