Iran says it developed missiles only to 'defend' against further attacks similar to that of the 8-year US-sponsored war on the country.
"Iran has developed its missile capabilities to defend itself," said Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar. "Our missiles are only a threat to invaders."
He was referring to White House reasoning that it needs to site interceptor missiles in Poland and an anti-missile radar system in the neighboring Czech Republic to ward off ballistic missile attacks by 'rogue states such as Iran'.
"Building a missile defense shield can only be justified in the context of protecting the world from the US and Israel as they are the ones who threaten the world with nuclear strikes and missile wars," the Brigadier General said Monday.
The Iranian official then reasoned that Washington is not worthy of trust because of its long history of advancing its interests at the expense of others with its 'satanic policies of world domination'.
