I've Been Thinking:
On Sunday Iran announced that they were launching four new Ghadir series submarines. The Ghadir are a midget series submarine and Iran has 11 of them.
At about only 30 yards long, the Ghadir may be small, but they are stealth equipped and very high tech. They will help Iran patrol their borders. They are capable of firing both torpedoes and missiles at the same time.
The Ghadir are very dangerous, difficult to monitor and a very effective attack weapon.
Iran continues to crank up their conventional weapons capabilities. That means we must keep a very, very close eye on what the Iranians do and don't do. We need to know exactly what the Iranians are capable of accomplishing.
