As the US sends B-52 nuclear bombers to South Korea, North Korea must decide whether or not it wants to go to war. Because of North Korea's close ties with Iran, supplying missile and nuclear technology, conflict there could light a short fuse to the Middle East.
Israel has not been idle while Iran has stockpiled weapons grade plutonium and upgraded its arsenal of high-tech rockets. This week, the IAF took delivery of a system designed to intercept intercontinental missiles outside the earth's atmosphere. Dubbed "Arrow 3," this is how it works.
When Iran tested its new ballistic missile system, it did so with the help of a buddy state: North Korea. Apparently, the Islamic theocracy and secular despotic state have joined forces to build missiles that can carry nuclear warheads.
