Hello, all. A question for the weapons experts at CASI. I'm confused by the Iraqis' claim that with guidance systems loaded the al-Samoud's range will be within the limit. In my naivete, I've always assumed that by definition ballistic missiles are by definition unguided -- that after the launch phase, there are no course corrections and the flight is entirely unpowered. Clause 8b of 687 refers specifically to ballistic missiles, but how is a missile with a guidance system considered ballistic? Any light that can be shed will be appreciated. In solidarity, Rahul Mahajan _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
