Iran: Why the expenses?

Those who believe that sanctions might force Khamenei to change his mind on nuclear issues fail to see the effect of Iran’s massive rearmament program. The Islamic state has just tested yet another new and reasonably advanced cruise missile, a surface-to-sea Nasr-1. Once it has been installed on Iranian Naval vessels, the missile could very well end US-Israeli plans to land commando troops from the Persian Gulf.

Weapons development has cost Iran more than any potential sanctions. Iran does not have any enemies, and the impoverished country has no reason to spend its last rials for missiles unless it intends to put them to profitable use very soon, before they become obsolete.

Iran cannot carry out a war against Saudi Arabia or Egypt, both of which are supported by the United States. But Syria would find Iranian missiles handy against Israel. After losing Egypt as an anti-Israeli ally, Syria replaced it with Iran, and is now ready to restart hostilities.
