"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN.com - Iran says it has test-fired radar evading missile

CNN.com - Iran says it has test-fired missile - Mar 31, 2006

"Iran successfully test-fired Friday a missile with the ability to avoid radar and hit several targets simultaneously, the airforce chief of the elite Revolutionary Guards said."

Uh, er, if it avoids radar detection how do we know it's true?

"Iran's top nuclear negotiator Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary Ali Larijani told a French weekly Iran has times and again announced it follows nuclear R&D for peaceful purposes. Larijani told Le Point weekly's latest edition that referral of Iran's case to the UN Security Council is a professional fiasco for the IAEA, indicating domination of policy on the Agency's profession."

The "peaceful purposes" nuclear energy will likely be delivered via this new missile with no name.

Further expressions of mullah-understood peace are planned with "one unit of Shahab 2 missiles to be launched to resemble peace and friendship among littoral states of the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman," at the kick off to the Holy Prophet (PBUH) maritime wargame.


One more thing, it looks as though the Islamic Republic News Agency doesn't feel it necessary that the folks that live there know about the missile test.
