TEHERAN (AFP) - Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday unveiled a long-range bomber drone called the Karar, designed to operate at high speed, state television reported. State television footage showed the president applauding as a blue cloth covering the Karar (assailant) was removed to reveal a short aircraft marked “bomber jet” in military-green. The broadcast showed the aircraft in flight, while Fars news agency quoted Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi as saying the drone had a range of up to 1,000 kilometres (620 miles). “This jet, before it heralds death for enemies, is the messenger of salvation and dignity for humanity,” Ahmadinejad said in his speech at the unveiling in a hall at Tehran’s Malek Ashtar university. State television said the drone was built to “carry and fire four stealth cruise missiles... and, depending on the mission, it can carry two bombs of 250 pounds (115 kilos) each or a precision missile of 500 pounds (230 kilos).”

Ahmadinejad said Iran’s defence abilities “should reach a point where we can cut off the aggressor’s arm before he acts, and if we miss, we should destroy him before he hits the target.” “The message of Karar bomber is to prevent any kind of aggression and conflict” against Iran. It was unveiled on Iran’s annual Defence Industry Day, and two days after the Islamic republic test-fired a domestically built surface-to-surface missile, the Qiam (rising). Iran is expected to follow up with series of military announcements as the nation also marks “government week,” a period to tout its achievements. Karar’s unveiling came days after Iran took delivery of four domestically-built Ghadi mini-submarines, a “stealth” vessel designed to operate in shallow waters such as the Gulf. The moves coincide with Iranian warnings against any attack. Its arch-foes, the USA and Israel, have not ruled out military action over Iran’s controversial nuclear programme.

Yesterday, Iran began to load nuclear fuel in its first nuclear power plant. Soon, the country is also expected to test-fire a third generation Fateh (conquerer) 110 missile. We should realice that we have a poor fund of understanding, our scientific equipment is imperfect, and as our vision is limited, is dangerous and self destructive to try to handle nuclear weapons.

Material science is only increasing the circumference of the mortal world. ... This so-called scientific research is a wild goose chase. It is suicidal. The atomic researchers will soon prove that this kind of science devours itself; it sucks its own blood. It will live, feeding on its own flesh and the flesh of its friends. Material scientific knowledge is no knowledge. ... Science means not to extend the jurisdiction of exploitation, knowing full well there will be a reaction. By extending the space of exploitation, we will also surely be exploited. If one knowingly commits an offense, then he is charged with more punishment. So, so-called scientific advancement is suicidal. And it is clearly proven: presently the leading countries of the world are threatening each other with atomic weapons, the highest product of the scientists.
