'Site found where Iran building 6,000 km ballistic missile'

Jane's..." style="BORDER-LEFT-COLOR: #666666; BORDER-BOTTOM-COLOR: #666666; BORDER-TOP-COLOR: #666666; BORDER-RIGHT-COLOR: #666666" height=108 src="http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?blobcol=urlimage&blobheader=image%2Fjpeg&blobheadername1=Cache-Control&blobheadervalue1=max-age%3D420&blobkey=id&blobtable=JPImage&blobwhere=1207649987697&cachecontrol=5%3A0%3A0+*%2F*%2F*&ssbinary=true" width=224 border=1 rendermode="live"> The site where Jane's Intelligence Review analysts assess that Iran is working on long-range ballistic missiles.
New satellite imagery exposed a site where Iran was developing long-range ballistic missiles, the London-based Times reported Friday.
On February 4, Iran launched a "research rocket" as part of its space program, the Islamic Republic announced. Experts have estimated since then, however, that the rocket launch was in fact a field test of Shihab-type ballistic missile. But four days after the launch another intriguing feature of the test became apparent: analysis of photographs taken by the Digital Globe QuickBird satellite indicated that the launch site of Kavoshgar 1, as the Shihab missile was dubbed by the Iranians, is also the site where Iran is busy developing ballistic missiles with a range of about 6,000 km. The site, about 230 km southeast of Teheran, was previously unknown and its link with the Iranian weapons program was revealed by Jane's Intelligence Review after the images were studied by a former Iraq weapons inspector. Using a space program as a façade for a weapons program was the path chosen by Korea until it declared it had passed the nuclear weapon threshold. Geoffrey Forden, a
research associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that there was a recently constructed building on the site, about 40 metres in length, which was similar in form and size to the Taepodong long-range missile assembly facility in North Korea. Jane's Proliferation editor Avital Johanan said analysis of the Iranian site indicated that Teheran may be about five years away from developing a 6,000 km ballistic missile. This would tie in with American intelligence estimates and underlines why President Bush wants the Polish and Czech components of the US missile defence system to be up and running by 2013. Missiles with a range of 6,000 km, launched from Teheran's environs, can hit not only any Middle Eastern countries, but also any target in Europe, including targets in Britain; almost any target in China and Russia,and most of India. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced his country has installed 6,000 centrifuges for the purpose of
enriching uranium, a process which can be geared towards either a civilian or military program. He did however continually reject incentives offered by the West in exchange for Iran halting its own enrichment, including a promise that Russia and other countries supply Iran with all the nuclear fuel it needed for peaceful purposes; Iran continues to deny it is trying to develop atomic bombs. President Shimon Peres had posited several times in the last few months that there was "no logic" in working diligently towards producing long-range ballistic missiles unless it planned to couple such missiles with nuclear warheads.

Orwell's Newspeak In The Middle East
Peace Process = Piece of Israel For Piece of Paper
Zionist Left (Labor, Kadima & Meretz) = Arab Nationalism Not Zionism
Self-Defense = Restraint = Israeli Deaths to Save Arab Lives
Transfer = Transfer Jews Not Arabs
American Aid = Does Not Aid Israel = American Control of Israel
Jewish Power = Jewish Weakness
Israeli Leadership = Chelmite Leadership = No Leadership
ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE AND LOVE
MAY ISRAEL AVOID PREEMPTIVE SURRENDER IN 2008
By Not Agreeing To Self-Destruction as per Orders from the US and the Left.
HASHEM HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES.
PLEASE DON'T WAIT FOR A MIRACLE -
BE THE MIRACLE!!
THE TRUTH MAY NOT ALWAYS BE POPULAR,
BUT IT IS STILL THE TRUTH.
OLMERT SURRENDERS TO TERRORISM
STOPS ANTI-TERRORISM BATTLES
PLACES HEAD OF ISRAEL ON CHOPPING BLOCK.
MAY OLMERT AND HIS EVIL GOVERNMENTS BE PROPERLY TRIED FOR NEGLIGENT AND/OR PRE-MEDITATED HOMICIDE.
AND THEN CAST INTO THE DUSTBIN OF HISTORY.
[Freeman Center Note: Considering the Jewish historical experience with weakness, ALL Jews (and, of course, Israelis) should be armed and able to defend themselves. Any attempt by the government to disarm Jews should be resisted by force. Better to die a free man than to live as a slave. Any attempt by the U.S, Europe or the UN to limit Israeli military freedom of action should be prevented!]
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Exactly like the Israeli government has been doing.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
