Iran: on the verge of becoming the next North Korea

As the Obama administration continues nuclear talks with Iran through November, Tehran’s military forces have continued to build up their cache of advanced weaponry, including drones and sophisticated missiles: A senior Iranian military commander has announced on Wednesday that Tehran is about to unveil new long-range and mid-range missile defense systems like Israel’s Iron Dome or the US Patriot, which can knock out incoming missiles in mid-air.

It is not a surprise for Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser on Iran and Iraq for the George W. Bush administration, who said Iran has made “great strides” in its missile technology, though it is unlikely Tehran could rival the technology employed in Iron Dome. But, when it comes to nuclear weapons, "they are on the verge of becoming the next North Korea", Rubin said.
