(CBS/AP) TEHRAN, Iran - Iran has test-fired four missiles designed to hit warships during a drill near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, an Iranian military commander said.
The missiles were fired simultaneously and hit a "big target" the size of a warship, sinking it within 50 seconds, Gen. Ali Fadavi of the powerful Revolutionary Guard was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency.

I thought there was an international floatilla in the Strait of Hormuz?
If so, how could they not think they were being fired upon?
Obozo say’s no problem just a bump in the road...
Amazing...Iran is going to actually foment an attack on themselves to justify an attack on Israel...very possibly!!

oh for cryin out loud...
these people that live in the 7th century must be amazed at this modern technology....
anybody with a mediocre amount of brain cells, and that can actually use them, can build a missile in their own backyard that can hit a target the size of a ship...
hell the chinese were doing it before the birth of christ..
just wait until they find out about this internet thingie..

Actually what happened. Iran launched four fire crackers with a catapult made from an erector set at a toy wooden ship made out of balsa wood.

I’m sure the target defended itself against the incoming missiles, too ;)
