Iran vowed Sunday to use a new 2,000-pound "smart" bomb against its enemies and unveiled mass production of the new weapon, state television reported. Teheran first announced development of the long-range guided bomb Thursday, saying it could be deployed by the country's aging US-made F-4 and F-5 fighter jets. "We will use these [bombs] against our enemies when the time comes," Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said on state television Sunday. The broadcast included a brief clip of a fighter jet reportedly dropping one of the bombs, which destroyed a target on the ground.
