Iran launches its first satellite into orbit

Iran demonstrated a new technological capacity by launching its first domestically-produced satellite. Although the particular satellite poses no threat, it could worry Israel and other countries concerned with potential Iranian aggression.

Anthony Cordesman, an expert on the Middle East, terrorism and defense policy at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, speaks with Martin Savidge about the implications of today’s launch and how it might relate to the use of a nuclear weapon.

The CIA and other spy angencies don’t have a true picture about the nuclear threat that Iran may have at this time.

Israel maybe the only nation to do something about
the nuclear threat that Iran has in the region.
