Tiranian salvo launchhe British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, has revealed more on Iran’s missile programs.  Yesterday it was silo-basing; today it’s multiple covert missile tests:

In a statement to lawmakers, Hague said: "Iran has also been carrying out covert ballistic missile tests and rocket launches, including testing missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload in contravention of UN resolution 1929."

He said Iran had also announced plans to triple its capacity to produce 20 percent enriched uranium, adding: "These are enrichment levels far greater than is needed for peaceful nuclear energy.

I’m shocked, shocked!  Of course, getting to 20 percent is on the route to HEU, which is needed for an Iranian nuclear weapon.

And the deafening silence from the professional intelligence and diplomatic communities?  It speaks volumes.

Then there’s the money quote from Reuters:

Iran has said that its latest exercise is not aimed at any country but carries "a message of peace and friendship."

Has Iran not learned that you can’t hug your children with nuclear arms?!can't hug  Has this t-shirt not yet been translated into Farsi?!  (FWIW, I’ve heard you actually can hug your children with nuclear arms, but that the kids get really warm as a result.)

Or does Iran instead know you can threaten and bomb children and other living things with nuclear weapons?  Buy the t-shirt at Zazzle.
