Khorramshahr (missile)

The Khorramshahr, named after the city of Khorramshahr in Iran, is a medium-range ballistic missile, tested by Iran in January 2017. Its range is between 1,000–2000 km with a 1,800 kg warhead and is 13 m in length. Jane's Defence Weekly and Center for Strategic and International Studies stated that it is the Iranian version of North Korea's Hwasong-10. North Korea sold a version of this missile to Iran under the designation BM-25; the number 25 represents the missile range. Iran said it has decreased missile size over the initial version, thus reducing propellant mass and range; such a range covers targets not only in Israel and Saudi Arabia, but NATO members Romania and Greece, if fired from Western Iran. IRGC Commander of the Aerospace Division, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh stated that the Iranian variant “has become smaller in size and more tactical,” which may explain the missile's decreased range. A second theory asserts that Iranian officials do not want to raise concern in Europe about their missile program, thus are purposely underestimating the range.

The IISS's Michael Elleman Iran today has the capability to go beyond the original range of 1,000-2,000 kilometers with its Khorramshahr ballistic missile, though it chose to limit its range by putting a heavier warhead on it in testing. Due to the heavy payload, it has potential to carry nuclear warheads, but it is uncertain whether it can carry multiple nuclear warheads due to their size; the Khorramshahr was first test fired on January 29, 2017, flying about 950 km before exploding. The out put gas from these rockets, range and rocket launchers are different. In Khorramshahr missile there are some small separated out put gas from the big one in the center to control the missile without wings; the gas output model of the Khorramshahr missile is more like the Hwasong-12. Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of Aerospace Force of the IRGC, said that Khorramshahr is a missile with multiple-warhead capability.

James Blake Miller

James Blake Miller is a United States Marine Corps veteran of the Iraq War, who fought in the Second Battle of Fallujah and was dubbed the "Marlboro Man" after an iconic photograph of him with a cigarette was published in newspapers in the United States in 2004. Miller suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after the war. Miller grew up in Kentucky. Miller's parents inspiration of his middle name was the show Dynasty, both grandfathers served in the military with one serving in combat during the Vietnam War, he became an ordained minister. Not interested in working in the coal mines, Miller joined the United States Marine Corps, with the intention of working in law enforcement. Miller was part of Charlie Company of the 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, a unit which took part in the Second Battle of Fallujah in November 2004. Los Angeles Times photographer Luis Sinco took a photo of 20-year-old Miller leaning against a wall, smoking a cigarette. In explaining the photograph, Sinco said.

To me, it said: terrified and glad just to be alive. I recognized that look because that's how I felt too." Sinco's photograph of Miller was published in many newspapers. CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather singled out the photo for its excellence, turned the then-unidentified Marine into a celebrity. Sinco was told to find the Marine for a follow-up story and tracked down Miller four days in an auditorium near Fallujah's civic center. Miller shared information with Sinco; the two would remain friends thereafter. After his identity was made public, people sent him care packages, including lots of cigarettes; the forward command center soon featured a large blowup of the photo. The Commanding General of the 1st Marine Division, Richard F. Natonski, made a special trip to see Miller, to Miller's surprise; the general shook Miller's hand and let him know that, because Americans had "connected" with his photo, nobody wanted to see him wounded or dead, he was offered a trip home. Miller turned down the offer.

The photo was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography in 2005. The photograph was nominated by Slate in 2011 for a list of "New Classics", products of the culture since 2000 that will withstand the test of time. After his tour, Miller returned to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, he was married in June 2005 and divorce papers were filed a year later. He was deployed aboard the USS Iwo Jima. In November 2005, Miller was medically discharged from the Marine Corps. In 2008, Miller was living in his hometown and having difficulty receiving care from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. By 2013, he had reunited with his wife and, with the help of Sinco, has sought psychological help. "Marine Whose Photo Lit Up Imaginations Keeps His Cool" Luis Sinco, Chad A.
