Iran Conducts War Games and Missile Tests in the Persian Gulf

Fox New reported March 22, 2006 that Iran conducted an underwater missile test in conjunction with war games with partner Qatr in the Persia Gulf. According to the report, the missile is able to travel underwater 220 miles-per-hour, a fact that the "U.S. Military finds troubling."

Interviewed in the same report, Israel's Dore Gold states that Iran claims to have developed a missile with MIRV capabilities that could threaten Europe and the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. Ambassador Gold also hinted that Iran is working on a "space lift" that would give them a missile-armed-space satellite.

It is unlikely that Iran has anything to fear from the fifteen members of the U.N. Security Council that have vowed to censure Iran's nuclear weapons program as watered down consensus in the U.N. is in effectual.

Iranian aggressive weapons in the hands of the mad mullahs are now a reality that will require a strong response. Stay tuned for further developments.

Here's Fox News more comprehensive print report.

    Yesterday's WaPo carried a front-page story all about why we can't afford to anger Iran. Over and over this morning, I hear various talking heads citing that article.

    The article is available at MSNBC's site and at Infidel Bloggers Alliance. You'll have to scroll to find it, but it is worth the read.

    On the other hand, yesterday's lead editorial in the WaPo mentioned that the West's having given Iran 30 days to comply is 29 days too long.
