Foreign Secretary William Hague has said Iran has been testing missiles capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.
He told Parliament the covert ballistic missile tests and rocket launches contravened a UN resolution.
The Iranians openly test-fired 14 surface-to-surface missiles with a range of 2,000km (1,250 miles) on Tuesday as part of a 10-day programme of military exercises.

Don’t worry, we have a missile shield in place to protect Europe. Oh, wait ... Obama voted NOT PRESENT on that one.
The window to push these goons back to the 7th century is rapidly closing.
I’m almost certain nothing will be done until these klingon wanna-bes detonate an EMP device over North America, which will push US back to the 7th centure.

It ain’t just Europe that’s threatened.
With advanced enough balllistic guidance, these things could be launched from the sea to detonate in major American cities along both coasts.
THAT is my fear....EMP....would be the easiest...
“Im almost certain nothing will be done until these klingon wanna-bes detonate an EMP device over North America, which will push US back to the 7th centure.”
I worry so much about an EMP attack. It’s almost never talked about. Actually, the one public figure I HAVE heard talking quite a bit about it in a speech was Newt. He and a co-author had just written a novel all about that happening.
