    Posted: 12 December 2007 at 7:01pm
I have a question for those here about Iran and WMD's. Since Iran denies its nuclear weapons program and our intelligence? claims that the program stopped in 2003, why would Iran develope a 2000km ranged ground launched, payload balistic missile?

Militarily and financially a high explosive warhead would be ineffective on this type delievery system. The "bang" for the buck ratio is way too small. To justify research and manufacture and deployment a WMD warhead either nuclear/chemical/biological must be the end result.

So why would Iran dump so much money into an ineffective weapon system unless it plans to place a WMD class warhead on it?

Because it'll launch plague cows a lot farther than a trebuchet.

Duh.

I love that part.  Lobbing those gigantic boulders and crap and just smashing stuff is awesome.

Mm hm. There need to be more movies with siege weapons. I'd like to see old school catapults throwing dozens of smaller rocks into massed infantry.

Personally, I find the trebuchet to be superior to the oldschool catapult.

They're huge and clumsy though. It's a lot easier to cart around five catapults than it is one trebuchet.

Well, if we're going to talk ease of transport, why not just go real old school and break out the plague rats?

You run the risk of killing your own troops with plague rats.  The Trebuchet has so much more range than the catapult too.
