If the second launch succeeds, it would mean that Iran is capable of producing solid fuel-powered rockets with a range of 2,450-2,450 kilometers, which covers not only all of Israel but would reach as deep into Europe as the Polish capital of Warsaw.
Heads of the Islamic regime in Tehran hope that the advent of a second Iranian spy satellite in Middle East skies, boosted by the new Safir rocket, will so astound the Americans and Israelis that they will think twice before going after Iran’s nuclear installations.
Analysis. Not a good sign. I would suggest that the Iranian regime’s launch of the satellite will not cause the United States or Israel to think twice but to expedite plans for destroying as much of Iran’s nuclear program as possible.
This could also become a NATO problem as the missile can reach well into NATO member’s territory. Also, the fact that this is a solid fuel missile cuts the warning time way down.
Depending on the level of success of Juniper Cobra, the recent joint US-Israel missile defense exercise, we could see an accelerated push to increase sanctions on Iran. It is also time for the United States and others to seriously consider supporting the Iranian people in their so far generally peaceful revolution against the theocracy.
The demonstrations on Student’s Day should make it clear to the World that a large percentage of the population wants the mullahs gone including a lot of the mullahs.
