Iran is making a lot of dumb moves these days. I really do not understand the purpose of these comments that Revolutionary Guard is trying to make. Here is the latest one:
As European oil embargo kicks in, Tehran announces three-day surface-to-surface missile drill. Revolutionary Guards general: We'll soon launch missile that can hit Iron Dome defense system
Could it be that they are making these comments for deterrent reasons? Then the questions become: do they even understand the concept of Iron Dome? It is widely believed that Iranian missile programs are 1960s and 1970s technology. They are about Forty (40) years behind. Israel on the other hand has up-to date technology that addresses various threats from its neighbors. One of these technologies is radar and electric jamming technology. That means Israel has technology that could jam and fry computer chips and electrical brain of these missiles. Even if Iran is successful to get these missiles off the ground, due to large distance between Iran and Israel, it will give plenty of time for Iron Dome to intercept these missiles that are headed toward Iran.
These kinds of comments are extremely unproductive. Ultimately, Iran needs to realize that end result will only have destruction for Iran as a country. Of course, these rulers of Iran simply do not care for that. For them, the end goal is something else other than Iranian national interest.
