What is “Ghadar”? Ghadar is the 1900 mile range ballistic missile Iran is developing underground to deliver its nuclear payloads, also being developed underground.

1900 Miles BTW is far enough to strike all of the middle east and even far enough to hit parts of India, China, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, most of the Balkans, and even southern Italy. And that’s if they only launch from Iran, imagine a ship based system?

Fortunately most of the world does not believe Iran’s denials of the nature of its nuclear program and action is all but immanent…Its too bad for the people of Iran that their leaders are representing them in a way that may lead to sanctions and/or action against them by the world…

ABC News

Speaking this morning at the National Press Club, Jafarzadeh described an "extensive large-scale operation" for the development of nuclear-capable missiles "in the most sophisticated, hidden way" in tunnels in a mountain range east of Tehran. Jafarzadeh named several Iranian entities involved in Iran's missile program, overseen by the Hemmat Industries Group. He said that eyewitnesses describe the facilities, begun in 1989, as an "underground township." Jafarzadeh added that, in addition to work on the Shahab family of missiles, Hemmat is overseeing work on a new long-range missile, Ghadar, which is still in development and has a projected range of 1,300 to 1,900 miles.

Reports of North Korean cooperation with Iran on its nuclear and missile programs have surfaced previously. In July 2005, Reuters cited a three-page intelligence report charging that North Koreans were teaching secret graduate-level courses at Tehran's Polytechnic University in nuclear technology. The UK's Telegraph reported in June 2005 that North Korean specialists in underground construction had arrived in Tehran to help design their facilities that would better shield Iran's nuclear program from international scrutiny.

Jafarzadeh's allegations come on the heels of the latest report on Iran from the International Atomic Energy Agency, which reveals that Iran received a document from the A.Q. Khan network in 1987 describing the "casting and machining" uranium into "hemispherical forms," a process directly relevant to the design of a nuclear warhead.

A State Department official contacted by ABC News about Jafarzadeh's charges was unable to corroborate them but did confirm that the Hemmat Industries Group was sanctioned in May 2003 as the unlawful recipient of missile technology from Moldova. The Shahab-3 was flight-tested by Iran in 2004. It is known to be capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and has a range of 1,500 kilometers. Experts do not know how many such missiles Iran has produced or deployed.

At least Iran has a stable and rational President…

A) There is already a thread on this.

B) There is no evidence that this is anything but a disgruntled exile telling the administration whatever it wants to hear. We've fallen into this trap before in Iraq, it's funny to see how some people are so warped by the lust for war that they'll believe the same BS again, without a shred of evidence or credibility.

Tell me, where are Saddam's chem-armed cruise missles aimed at the US East Coast we were all warned about? Oh, that's right, they were all moved to Syria or [insert name of country you want to bomb next here.]
