Iran Unveils New Homemade Nuclear-Capable Ballistic Missiles Amid Massive War Celebrations

Iran unveiled a series of new homemade nuclear-capable ballistic missiles during military parades held over the weekend, a move that experts view as a bid to bolster the hardline ruling regime as dissidents continue efforts to stir protest.

On the heels of an encounter between an Iranian drone and Israeli forces, Iranian leaders showcased their ballistic missile capabilities, which includes a nuclear-capable medium-range missile that appears to share similarities with North Korean technology, according to experts.

The nuclear-capable missile can strike Israel even when fired from Iranian territory, raising concerns about an impending conflict between Tehran and the Jewish state that could further inflame the region.

Iranian military leaders bragged the ballistic missile "can be launched from mobile platforms or silos in different positions and can escape missile defense shields due to their radar-evading capability," according to reports in Iran's state-controlled media.

The latest technology could further inflame tensions between Israel and Iran, which funds and controls terror organizations operating along Israel's border. Concerns that this nuclear-capable technology could be shared by Iran with its terrorist proxies are fueling longstanding concerns among the Israelis that an attack is imminent.

As Iranian dissidents continue to protest over the country's ailing economy, the ruling regime continues to invest millions of dollars it received as part of the landmark nuclear deal with the United States on its military technology, specifically ballistic missiles, which are subject to a ban under international statutes.

Thank you. Yes, he really made Ezekiel 38 possible. Gave Iran $150 billion dollars to help them on their way.

I’m sure ValJar was all smiles and giggles, too.

Guess I should ping the list one more time today.

Did they write “Thank You Obama” on the sides of the missiles.

Didn’t believe they’d do what their imams were constantly howling to be done. And yet wanted to shut up all Christian pastors in public lest someone follow along.

Shows to go us, there’s a reason for a Trump parade. It’s a warning.

Any knock out of NK is going to need a knock out of Iran too.

I don’t know what will happen to NK. I only DO know God will make sure Israel is protected during Ezekiel 38.

However, I put nothing past NK. Or Pakistan.

My feeling is NK is just buying time. But I can’t prove that. Depends upon how nuts Fat Boy is.

Time will tell how all plays out.

Israel already has some pretty good antimissile defense in its Iron Dome.

Well, the fate of Iran and Korea is now sealed.

They will glow in the dark, cities converted to incandescent ash pits.

All thanks to the magic negro and his movement of Alinsky liberal fascists.

A silver bullet would be too good for him.I wouldn’t even cross the street to attend his funeral, let alone go to D.C. The most horrid, treasonous, usurping, inhumane piece of trash the nation has ever seen in the White House.

And they are still at it, a bunch of racketeer poseurs, pretending to be Americans.Time to rid ourselves of them for good.

Not exactly, Iron Dome is for much more local rockets and missiles, launched from a range of 4-70 km. It does not have the operational ceiling to target long range ballistic missiles launched into space from hundreds to thousands of km away.

The Arrow system is designed for the latter, and the Arrow-3 is now being deployed, although I’m not sure how many Israel has right now. Let’s hope that they can afford enough of the Arrow-3s to provide very full protection against whatever Obozo has helped Iran to develop.
