I bet they bought that rocket from Ghorbanifar.
Iran shooting a monkey in to space? Entirely possible I suppose.
They have nuclear power, some new missile types with range of a few thousand miles and can bring down an US sentinel drone. Maybe they really did
I agree completely with your point about how other nations have developed their ICBM programs vis a vis through the "peaceful" space programs. Sad,
really when you think of what we could have achieved by now if the whole planet were collaborating on space exploration.
US Space Command better watch out none of our satellites slip on a monkey turd up there and trigger WW3 by accident.
I forgot to add:
DEATH TO IMPERIALIST IRANIAN SPACE MONKEYS!
Not being an Israeli this doesn't bother me, in fact it might not be a bad thing to balance the powers in the region. Poor Iran is boxed in between
Iraq, Afghanistan and a couple Soviet Republics and they've done nothing aside from a little tacit support of Hezbollah to merit talk of bombing them
back in to the stone age. My worry is that Saudi Arabia will demand the US strike Iran and knock them back militarily and perhaps technologically a
decade or so.
I think it's high time we began open talks with Iran and began treating them with the dignity and respect they deserve from being one of the developed
nations with a long history of peaceful acts. Most of their problems have been induced by the Western powers from installing the Shah to the return
of the Ayatollah.
