Iran begins production of cruise missiles

Iran announced Sunday that it has started a new production line of highly accurate, short range cruise missiles, which would add a new element to the country's already imposing arsenal.

Gen. Ahmad Vahidi told Iranian state TV that the cruise missile, called Nasr 1, would be capable of destroying targets up to 3,000 tons in size.

The minister said the missile can be fired from ground-based launchers as well as ships, but would eventually be modified to be fired from helicopters and submarines.

It's time for more than a stern warning and empty toothless threats of sanctions.

Or, will we wait until nuclear armed missiles are on their way to U.S. territory from Iranian subs?
