Well, considering the problems the US has in getting a manned spacecraft from earth to space - and back again, I doubt very seriously that Iran could even get off the ground with a manned spacecraft! And if they are getting help from Russia, the thing would probably blow up like Russian made TV's and cars do!
Now a satellite, that would be something more worth worrying about.

Iran might seek to develop a space program to improve national pride. Successfully testing a launch vehicle would allow Iran to boast that it is a space power.
