Iran's New Long-Range Missile

You can bet that the hot-lines between Jerusalem and Washington are buzzing about this - and that Arab capitals are concerned as well. Netanyahu will insist even louder that the military option against Iran be given a higher priority.

On the other hand, all of the world's major powers have this kind of capability. Iran sees itself as a major power. And Iran has US troops surrounding it in Iraq and Afghanistan, US naval forces in the Persian Gulf, a US government that at least until recently was trumpeting the need for regime change there, and an increasingly hostile and well-armed Israel threatening to attack. Can you blame them for wanting to develop a powerful deterrent?
