Iran Tests Short Range Missiles Amid Nuclear Tension.


edition.cnn.com

Iran tested a missile-launching system and two types of missiles Sunday, the state-run Press TV said. The missile tests come amid tension over the Islamic republic's nuclear program.

The tests come after Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's disclosure Friday that Iran was building a second uranium enrichment facility.

But the timing of the missile tests has been widely interpreted as an Iranian show of force in the face of the international storm of criticism over the secret facility.

Tehran carried out the missile tests now "to show some muscle, show some strength, and say the game is not over for Iran yet," said Alex Vatanka, a senior middle east analyst at IHS Jane's.

UPDATE:


Iran test-fired medium-range missiles, state TV reported on Monday, a day after the Islamic Republic's elite Revolutionary Guards launched short-range missiles as part of several days of war games.

"Iran test-fires medium-range missiles," English-language Press TV said in a scrolling news headline, giving no further detail on the type of missiles or when the test took place.

After claiming to successfully test-fire two short-range missiles during drills Sunday by the elite Revolutionary Guard, the missiles fired on Monday may have the capability to hit Israel and U.S.

What is going on here?

Is this all just propaganda or is it just too real and bizarre to be true - but is true anyway?

Is Ahmadinejad's intent on painting a big red bulls eye over the heart of his country?


The missiles, fired at targets around the country Sunday, included the Fateh-110, a short-range ground-to-ground missile, and Tondar-69, a short-range naval missile, the station said. Iran plans to test the long-range Shahab missile on Monday.

The tests, which are expected to go on for the next 10 to 11 days, are codenamed "Payghambar-e Azam 4" or "The Great Messenger 4," Press TV said.


Unreal...

Those were annual missile tests that they carry out every year, its no big deal. The important thing right now is the startling news of their secret nuclear complex pointing to the fact that their program is actually much more comprehensive than was publicly disclosed to the IAEA and the international community.

The possibility that they are indeed developing or plan to develop nuclear weapons has increased to almost a certainty, the international community will have to move swiftly to press down hard on Iran and force them to disclose their program and shut down their attempts at nuclear weapons.

Yes he is intent on painting a red bulls eye on his nation and because of this I really fear for the people of Iran. Ahmadinijad must work for Mossad or something because he is leading his nation to sure confrontation with the serious military elite. I honestly believe he's mad. Iran is going to go the way of Iraq and possibly (depending on the weaponry used) something so much worse.

Perhaps, but he's not stupid.

And yes, I fear - greatly - for his people also...

He must be stupid - Ahmadinijad is out 24/7 to piss off the USA and Israel, two of the most ruthlessly agressive military states known in modern history. Stupid, mad and for his nation suicidal.

My opinion...for what it is worth......Iran has a right to do as it wishes with its nuclear facilities. The hypocracy of those who condem them and threaten them is amazing. Unfortunatly Iran is in the way of a much bigger plan for the middle east.

Ive always favoured the underdog against the "School Bullies" of this world, although in this instance I think the bullies know they arnt getting their own way.

Testing missiles...good for them....nuclear facilities...good for them....nuclear weapons...why not, Israel has them and they are doing the threatening.

Then you know something this news reporter does not.


Iran test-fired two short-range missiles and tried out a multiple-missile launcher for the first time during military drills in the Iranian desert on Sunday, according to Iranian state-run Press TV.

The news came as President Obama prepares for the first direct diplomatic meeting with Iran in 30 years, which will be held in Geneva on Thursday.

After Iran's revelation to the IAEA last week that it is developing another nuclear enrichment site, the United States, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, and China will insist at the talks that Iran allow immediate and unrestricted access to the plant.

The Washington Post suggests Iran will be given till the end of the year before the United States pushes for sanctions against the country, while other reports indicate the Obama administration will insist on compliance within a matter of weeks. In an interview this morning, Defense Secretary Robert Gates will tell ABC he believes Iran intends to have nuclear weapons.

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I agree.

But there is time to poke the bear and the time to spread the honey.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is the "Supreme Leader" and the Commander-in-Chief of Iranian forces... not Ahmadinejad.

Regardless, good for Iran... nobody likes to be pushed around by hypocritical liars, especially an ancient Persian people who are fiercely proud of their culture that pre-dates the US by 1000s of years. These people will be strong armed by no one, bet on that.

Our politicians don't like their politicians, that's all... too bad we can't watch them fight like men and eviscerate each other with plastic forks on PPV.. those cowards send other people kids to fight their battles.

Irans Oil Bourse is a kick in the US gangster elites nut-sac because there is nothing they can do except suck it, and get their panties in a wad moaning on and on about nuke fantasies and terrorism innuendo.

Saddam did the exact same thing, we saw how the DC mafia reacted.

"Tehran's objective constitutes an obvious encroachment on U.S. dollar supremacy in the international oil market".. yea, and it also gives Iran enough money to laugh at US motivated sanctions.

How dare Iran beat us at our own game, like good empirical bully we'll have go across the school yard to kick their ass... then cry "they started it!".

Eaxactly and for that reason the military elite will send this Persian nation back to the stone age just like they did to so many nations in the past. Ask the ghost of Saddam if it's a good idea to mess with the English speaking peoples and Israel. Crazy and this will lead to the inevitable

Yes, I do.

The exercise is part of the Great Prophet 4 exercise that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards carry out almost annually. The news missile launcher test is interesting but nothing new. Every year they test new missile systems and existing missiles .



The Great Prophet IV maneuver, which is a sequel to The Great Prophet III carried out last year by the IRGC naval and ground forces in the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz region, started on Sunday and is expected to continue for several days in two phases.

The IRGC commander said the main objective of today's demonstration is to "evaluate the technical developments that Iran has achieved just recently in its surface-to-surface missiles," noting that long-range Shahab missile will be fired tomorrow.

He also added that medium range Shahab-2 missiles will be tested tonight.
