Don’t worry. It was just Joel.

He did a good job cleaning up the place but the Mullahs didn’t like, so they shot him into space.

Yes, I see that NASA’s Islamic outreach program is coming along splendidly.

The firing was designed for one purpose, and one purpose only - that is, to indicate to the world that once they have nukes they can send them anywhere on Earth.

That's exactly right.

It's a shame we're currently without a Commander-in-Chief.

There is a trade off between payload and range. And miniaturizing a nuke is not trivial. During the 1950’s the standing question was, “Will the AEC make ballistic missiles practical?” Unfortunately, they are.

Gee, can anyone put two and two together on this with me.

1) Iran now has space launch capabilities
2) Iran is working on creating their own nuclear bomb

Let’s see, nuclear bomb in orbit over the US.... BOOOOOOMM!!!

EMP anyone? Better stock up on food, fuel and a generator cause your gonna be outta power one day after they figure it out.

Talk about crippling a nation with one bomb.

Ahmadinejad has stated that his purpose for living is to bring about the coming of the 12th. Imam. This requires world conflagration. Once he has enough nukes circling the earth at 250 miles up, they will be simultaneously detonated and all civilizations which require electricity will cease to exist as they know it and will revert to a subsistence life style. That means over 250,000,000 dead in the USA alone and many billions world wide.

Reagan wouldn’t let this happen.

Big O believes it will be the biggest reduction of the world’s carbon footprint since Genghis Khan.

The article says nothing about the flight that amounts to much. While the Iranians have launched at least one package into orbit - for how many orbits we do not know. Sputnik 1 was up there for about three months, Vanguard, launched after Explorer 1 by the United States is still in orbit, more than a half century later.

Was it sub-orbital, dangerous enough as a demonstration of warhead heft and aiming capability, their real intent here, not launching Space Monkeys, human or otherwise.

The story is deceptive, on its face because of what it leaves out. It's irresponsible to publish such a story without mentioning these and many other unknowns. That's part of the story too.

"Iran has launched its Kavoshgar-4 rocket carrying a test capsule into space."

It could have just as easily read that "Iran has launched its Kavoshgar-4 rocket carrying a test NUCLEAR weapon payload into space." In a decade Iran will be able to hit any point on the globe with nuclear weapons.
