7. Ballistic missiles not very effective
Edited on Thu Nov-24-11 07:56 PM by soryang
This is the focus of the article, that Iranian ballistic missiles are an effective counterstrike force and could saturate the air defense systems of the states involved in any attack on Iran. I'm afraid that this is wishful thinking. Conventionally armed ballistic missiles will do little to defend Iran, they will simply impose non decisive costs on the involved states. Those costs should they involve damage to any vital infrastructure will gladly be received by the usual suspects, the US multinational contractors who will benefit financially from such a conflict. What happens to anyone else is of little concern to them.
