Iran unveils ‘ambassador of death’ unmanned bomber


Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Sunday inaugurated the country’s first domestically built long-range unmanned bomber aircraft, calling it an “ambassador of death” to Iran’s enemies.

Speaking to a group of officials, Ahmadinejad said, “The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship.”

The goal of the aircraft is to “keep the enemy paralyzed in its bases,” he said, adding that the jet is for deterrence and defensive purposes.

The president championed the country’s military self-sufficiency program and said it will continue “until the enemies of humanity lose hope of ever attacking the Iranian nation.”

The 4-meter-long unmanned plane, dubbed the Karrar, or striker, in Farsi, was inaugurated on the national day for the country’s defense industry in a ceremony aired live on state TV.

No details were provided on the craft’s capabilities.

In a speech at the unveiling ceremony, Ahmadinejad said Iran should seek the ability to make pre-emptive strikes against a perceived threat, although he said it would never strike first.

    I honestly cant believe that Iran and North Korea are arming themselves to the teeth with nuclear weapons and missiles while the US and the world just sit back and watch we need to stop them now before they plunge us into a nuclear war un believe me it will happen sooner or later as long as this nuclear proliferation continues!!!

      Iran just wants to make nuclear power, the americans are just afraid that iran would make nuclear weapons just because they think that they will bomb them, the americans and the israelians are just afraid that a muslim country has the capability to start a war and win,
      even if iran doesnt make nuclear weapons it is still advancing and creating new rockets by the day and will have the ability to win the u.s and israel
      even if iran says that it is going to make nuclear weapon i dont think anyone DARES to stop them, they just create sanctions and stupid stuff.
