    Iran Tests New Satellite Rocket

    Tehran - Iran on Wednesday successfully tested a new locally built satellite rocket named Kavoshgar 3, state-media reported.

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also unveiled Wednesday the new domestically produced carrier engine Simorq, which can take a 100-kilogram satellite into orbit.

    The event came on the 31st anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

    'This is a great technological achievement for Iran as now we have the confidence that there is no limit to our technological capabilities,' Ahmadinejad said at the ceremony in Tehran.

    'As far as aerospace technology is concerned, we need two more steps and then we can claim that the space is in the hands of Iranian scientists,' the president added.

    The range of the new rocket is 500 kilometres to place a satellite into orbit. Ahmadinejad said the range would be increased in coming years to as much as 1,000 kilometres.

    I saw a little blurb about this on google news the other day. I found it to be quite worrisome.

    How is this statement relevant?

    Well, as should be obvious to you, if former Pres. G. W. Bush was still president, and Tony Blair was still P. M. of the UK, and immediate and total nuclear and/or conventional carpet bombing of Iran would be ordered, to prevent Iran (and ergo, terrorists) from putting nuclear weapon satellites in orbit.

    Or something on a slightly lesser scale, but to the same effect.

    So Iran's ICBM project is continuing apace with their bomb development plans.

    And the Messiah cancelling US defence programs left and left.

    Nice.

    It is worth worrying about. I am afraid that a lot of skeptics are going to recognize the threat Iran poses, only when an Iranian nuke goes off 220 miles above Omaha Nebraska, and the entire USA goes dark due to EMP (electromagnetic pulse).
