  • Iranian silo based missiles in Venezuela?

    So this article suggests anyway... anyone here got other info' regarding this story?
    Die Welt has a new report this month, however, recounting details like the visit of an Iranian engineering team to Venezuela in February, and the prospective site of the missile complex on the Paraguana peninsula off the northwestern coast. (English write-up based on the 13 May Die Welt article here.) I use the expression “missile complex” for a reason. Details in the Die Welt report indicate that what Iran and Venezuela are planning to construct is not just a base for a missile battery; it’s a complex of underground silos for the Shahab-3 medium-range missile.

    I guess the fools never heard of the Cuban Missile Crisis. That was with a world powers backing. Hugo and what's his name do not have that backing.

      Saw this on HarpGamer. It's a dumb move if true - it serves no strategic use and would only serve to annoy the USA.

            The way the Venezuelan economy is collapsing Hugo will have to start a war with somebody, or pretend to be at war. Columbia would fight back, Guyana is too small, and Brazil is his new budy, so who does that leave?

            Hm, Aruba?
            A few missiles might be just the cover he needs to pull that off.

                There's no way Chavez could pull off Aruba.

                  Missle minus nukes are worthless

                  Balistic missles minus nuclear war heads are strategically useless. You would have to have a large volume of warheads to seriously affect a city with chemical weapons, an absurb ammount with conventional warheads. Until Iran or North Korea is able to supply them with a delivarable nuclear payload, this constitutes nothing more than a waste of money.
                  If war is Hell, why was the Eastern Front so damned cold??!!

                    That bloated, socialist idiot Chavez can't even keep the lights on and the electricity running in his country on a 24 hour basis. Why does he want access to ballistic missiles?

                      You know that, I know that, most everybody here knows that but...............does Hugo know that?

                              Chances are, some hack at this newspaper saw sat. imagry and jumped to conclusions.

                              In reality, anyone who sucks up to Castro almost as bad as Danny Ortega did in the 80's should have learned from that example.
