    No. If they did have a nuclear weapon, their missiles can't get anywhere near us, and their navy would be sunk long before they got anywhere close to cruise missile range.

    ...That's not really accurate. I mean, all you have to do is load the bomb onto a rocket, get a pretty rough idea of how long you want it to fly before it runs out of fuel, and load it up / launch it. It's not hard to make a ballistic missile.

    You sure about that? Wikipedia tells me only 3 contries have ICBMs...so maybe it is hard? I'm not a weapons expert.

    There is a pretty solid difference between a ballistic missile and a ICBM. The home made rockets that Hamas builds in Palestine to shoot over the wall are technically ballistic missiles, an ICBM needs fairly sophisticated guidance and propulsion systems to get where its going.

    The context of the quote was about Iran being able to launch nukes at us, which I believe requires an ICBM.
