Obama's new BFF Iran has more missiles than it can hide according to General Hossein Salami
Obama's new BFF Iran has more missiles than it can hide according to General Hossein Salami. (DS).
Iran's Revolutionary Guards have so many missiles they don't know where to hide them, a senior commander said at Friday prayers, after the United States threatened to impose fresh sanctions.
