Is Iran trying to develop a missile that could reach the "Great Satan"?

The missile under construction at an Iranian research-and-development facility, which was damaged by a mysterious explosion in November, was a long-range missile prototype with a range of 6,000 miles – enough to hit the United States, a senior Israeli official said Thursday in a speech to a defense and security forum.

At the time of the Nov. 12 explosion at a facility some 30 miles outside Tehran, Iranian officials insisted that the suspicious blast was an accident. It occurred, they said, during experimentation on a medium-range missile – one capable of reaching Israel.
 
But on Thursday, Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s vice prime minister and minister of strategic affairs, said in a speech outside Tel Aviv that the missile under development actually had a range closer to 6,000 miles.

"They are simply trying to move their whole population as far from the United States as they can get - like Alpha Centauri for starters." Or to oblivion -- when Iran could no longer be found anywhere -- just a drop of oil in the ocean where it used to be.

We are flexing our muscles now because we have already your threat of nuclear war against Israel up to here. Provoke us a little bit more to use them on you, and it would be what it shall be -- you vanish from the face of this planet without a trace, except just a drop of oil where Iran used to be.

If you ever see Iran building a whole bunch of gigantic missiles, not to fear. They are simply trying to move their whole population as far from the United States as they can get - like Alpha Centauri for starters.
