IAF Says Iran Ramping Up Air Defenses

"The IAF officer said that Iran is increasingly fearful of attack. 'But they are limited in their ability to create an effective air defense,' he said.

"According to intelligence, Iran has beefed up its air defenses around various nuclear sites as a precaution against a possible pre-emptive strike by US or Israeli forces. The source described the present Iranian air defenses as 'good.' It is known that Iran has deployed Soviet-origin anti-aircraft systems around the 1000-megawatt Bushehr nuclear reactor."

I like this line:

"Kerry, a strong proponent of nuclear non-proliferation"

Take that, all you opponents of nuclear non-proliferation!
