Iran could shower Europe with ‘scores or even hundreds’ of missiles in a single attack, America’s defence secretary warned today.
Robert Gates said U.S. intelligence units have reported a growing threat in Iran’s ballistic missile capability.
Today, Mr Gates said: ‘One of the elements of the intelligence that contributed to the decision on the phased adaptive array (approach) was the realisation that if Iran were actually to launch a missile attack on Europe, it wouldn't be just one or two missiles, or a handful.
‘It would more likely be a salvo kind of attack, where you would be dealing potentially with scores or even hundreds of missiles.’
