In the current debate over the Iranian bomb, the White House is staying quiet about its concerns over the regime's progress on missile development.
Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard on Wednesday said it had acquired missiles with multiple warheads, the latest armaments advance to be claimed by the Islamic Republic.
Iran unveiled a new drone on Monday that is being touted as its biggest and most technologically advanced yet, capable of flying for 30 hours nonstop – long enough to hang above Israel, the defense minister claimed.
Newly elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has picked his defense minister: A former militia commander who plotted the 1983 the U.S. Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, killing 241 U.S. personnel.
"Iran's missiles are not up for discussion under any circumstances," Mr. Dehghan told the country's official Fars news agency. "Iran's missiles are only our concern ... . We don't accept any intervention from anybody on this issue."
The Qadr H1 and Qiam, he said, are equipped with multiple warheads, greatly boosting their destructive power.
