Russians Help Iran with Missile Threat to Europe

Con Coughlin, Telegraph:

Former members of the Russian military have been secretly helping Iran to acquire technology needed to produce missiles capable of striking European capitals.

The Russians are acting as go-betweens with North Korea as part of a multi-million pound deal they negotiated between Teheran and Pyongyang in 2003. It has enabled Teheran to receive regular clandestine shipments of top secret missile technology, believed to be channelled through Russia.

Western intelligence officials believe that the technology will enable Iran to complete development of a missile with a range of 2,200 miles, capable of hitting much of Europe. It is designed to carry a 1.2-ton payload, sufficient for a basic nuclear device.

A man cannot decide what the future field to plow is to be.
all that a man can do is the best that they can and pray
that there children, their good children will make good
use of the efforts of their fathers. And pass on to their
children a even field to till.

We are but humans, we master no tides, however we can make
better ships!
