"Ten Iranian Missile Engineers Visited N. Korea" (Sankei reports)
Their immediate mission could be to verify the capability of missile equipments which N. Korea imported from China. Apparently, Iran wanted to collect information (on the equipments) in order to determine whether to purchase them from China.
It is backed up by the analysis of Western military experts that the two countries, with China's help, have been jointly developing a turbo pump which injects fuel into Taepodong-2.
Foreign Minister Aso emphasized, "It is important to urge restraints on N. Korea, and the issue should be resolved through dialogues, such as 6-party talks," and Secretary Rice also said, "It is important to urge cooperation among countries involved."
I am sure they did.:)
It would be interesting if Iran test-fires a missile which lands on the water off Marseilles, France.
I am sure that French Muslims would rejoice.
"N. Korea, Iran and China all still in it together. I think China needs more squeezing."
but will china listen to their peer Bill Gates, and will Bill Gates get tough on them
Squeeze China! Boycott every store in America!!!
This adds weight to the speculation from a few days ago that the NK missile launch MUST fly at some point, as there is a deal between NK and Iran that includes the launch as a demonstration that would fall thru if it did not.
I cant help but wonder what good a missile is that takes days to prepare. This missile has to be fueled and set up. A job that takes several days.
American intelligence sources would know days before a launch that preparations were being made. The only hope of using this as an offensive weapon would be the surprise of calling it a test and using a warhead. The country using it would only have the one shot. Of course we realise this is just a prototype for better things to come.
It would appar to me that Iran, N.Korea, Venezuela , and perhaps a few other half assed countries are working together to get themselves destroyed.
Just the fact these two countries are working together on nukes should make the world WAKE UP.
"Just the fact these two countries are working together on nukes should make the world WAKE UP."
They've been working together for years on assorted military exchanges. Hasn't seemed to have phased anyone.
I knew they were working together before now too...but it seems to accelerate and that's not good.
Does anyone else see the probability of a huge boycott for the 2008 olympics?
Iran is not likely to launch a ballistic at Europe. It would be the end of the current regime in Iran. Simple logic under the NATO defence treaty. This would be all that the U.S. would need to defang the current regime in Iran.
If these are senior Iranian Missile Engineers responsible for their program, why not have a work "accident" when they are on their way back to Iran. Possibly engine malfunction while in the air...or just SHOOT THE BA$TARDS DOWN. Huge setback for their program!!
If Iranians rode an old Antonov to get to N. Korea, all we need is just a little tweak to bring it down.:)
The plane is known to be a flying death trap.
Anyway, it is not bad to hear that they were "martyred" in the service of their country.
Sadly, more difficult to do every day we procrastinate. I had posited the premise that the N. Korean missile test was being done for Iran - over a week ago in a comment on FR.
This does not sound good at all but I am not surprised
