Achilles’ heel and Axis of evil!

Rogue states such as North Korea and Iran could use nuclear weapons to attack Britain’s vital communications and electricity networks from space.

In a stark warning, Dr Liam Fox warned countries that sought nuclear capabilities could attack Britain from the upper atmosphere instead of through more traditional “nuclear strikes”.

The Defense Secretary disclosed that British officials believe such an attack involving a nuclear detonation would destroy vital electronic systems by producing an electromagnetic pulse.

Dr Fox also told the international conference on the vulnerability of electricity grids around the world to natural disaster and hostile attack, that an impending “solar flare” space storm could produce just as much damage to communication networks.

But Dr Fox warned that terrorists might seek to employ such methods. He urged the public to take greater heed of the threat.

“We will need to ensure that those same technological innovations that provide advantage do not become our Achilles’ heel.”

“With reliance, for instance on technology, comes vulnerability, and vulnerability can invite attack,” he said.

Iran could target Western Europe with missiles by 2014, although it would take at least twice as long before they could hit the United States, International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) said in a report published.

Tehran has now surpassed Pyongyang in terms of technical ability, the IISS experts said.

Iran has a well-developed technological and industrial capability to build short-range and medium-range missiles on a large scale.

In 2009, Iran tested a missile which says that it can reach 2000km, which is enough to hit Israel, NATO-member Turkey, India, China, and some parts of Greece and the former Yugoslavia. According to Western military experts, however, the Shahab-3’s range may be only 1300km. The same experts also say that there may be a 2500km range version, which could easily reach many countries in Europe.

Iran’s regime looks at its buddies from Axis of evil club and see what happened to Iraq and what did not happened to North Korea, They say to them self we prefer to be North Korea which has nuclear weapons than Iraq which attacked from abroad, it’s that simple.
