    Ahmadinejad says he is ready to be first Iranian in space

    Ahmadinejad says he is ready to be first Iranian in space | Reuters

    (Reuters) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday he was ready to be the first human sent into orbit by Iran's fledgling space program, Iranian media reported.

    Iran declared last week that it had successfully launched a monkey into space and retrieved it alive, which officials hailed as a major step towards their goal of sending humans into space.

    The launch added to Western concerns about Iran's space program because the same rocket technology could potentially be used to deliver a nuclear warhead on a ballistic missile.

    "I am ready to be the first human to be sent to space by Iranian scientists," Ahmadinejad said on Monday, on the sidelines of an exhibition of space achievements in Tehran, according to the Mehr news agency.
    This is not a satire article, Iranian President Ahmadinejad has actually said he is willing to risk his life to be the first human Iran sends into space. Assuming he is serious and this is not solely propaganda, what do you think his chances of returning would be?

    Pretty good. I think he is in his last term in office anyway. I kind of find it interesting they are going to space. Wish the US still had a manned space program.....just saying....

    He thinks he can top Chavez going up in a plane and shooting clouds with a laser?

    Oh, I think shooting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad into space is a terrific idea.

    What's that? Bring him back? You mean, they plan to bring him back as well? Bummer. Oh, well, there's still a good chance they won't succeed.

    How ironic, most of the world would like Ahmadinejad in space as well.......to stay there.

    Wonderful idea. I think it would be great if he landed in downtown Tel Aviv.

    How do you know the monkey was Iranian? Maybe Ahmadinejad could just be the first Iranian regardless of species.

    If Iran launches an Ahmadinejad warhead and it lands on US territory, is that a declaration of war? Surely we would be justified in using our missile defense technology on such a weapon?
