Tehran plans nuclear weapon test by March

WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 (UPI) -- Tehran is planning a nuclear weapons test before the Iranian New Year on March 20, 2006 says a group opposed to the regime in Tehran.

The Foundation for Democracy citing sources in the U.S and Iran offered no further information.

The FDI quotes sources in Iran that the high command of the Revolutionary Guards Air Force have issued new orders to Shahab-3 missile units, ordering them to move mobile missile launchers every 24 hours in view of a potential pre-emptive strike by the U.S. or Israel. The order was issued Tuesday, Jan. 16.

The group says the launchers move only at night, and have been instructed to change their positions "in a radius of 30 to 35 kilometers." Prior to the new orders the Shahab-3 units changed position on a weekly basis. Advance Shahab-3 units have been positioned in Kermanshah and Hamadan province, within striking distance of Israel. Reserve mobile launchers have been moved to Esfahan and Fars province.

Well, there you have it. Either this is blatant propaganda or the deadlne to do something about Iran is approaching quickly. Comments?

This subject has already been discussed here -'

- I think you'll find it's merely another of those emigré opposition groups stirring the pot (as they are wont to do).

You'll not find a single informed independant expert source giving credibility to these wild claims; almost all of those arte Iran as being at least 10yrs away from a nuclear weapon - and that is only if they are actually trying to make one now.
