#1 Uncle Phester,

That looks a lot like an old Cold War standby, the Bristol Bloodhound:

My compliments to the Chief of Iranian Air Defense on making a non-functional copy of a 1952 weapon. I have CC'd this to CINC9AF, and I am sure he will be trembling in his boots once he stops laughing.

#4 "By the time the missile has just cleared the launcher it is doing 400 mph. By the time the missile is 25 feet from the launcher it has reached the speed of sound (around 720 mph). Three seconds after launch, as the four boost rockets fall away, it has reached Mach 2.5 which is roughly 1,800 mph"
Wow. I hope the U.K. has something that improved on this, but I wouldn't bet on it.

#5 The Persians said the same thing in 480BC. It was a real downer for morale when they happened to bump into the Spartans at Thermopylae :-)

#6 I remember when they shot those things at Godzilla.
They didn't stop him either.

#7 '“we vow our enemies will not survive,” if they attack Iran’s nuclear sites.'

"And if there's no attack we'll kill our enemies as well."

Damned if you do...
