Iran to Conduct Missile War Games
http://breakingnews.nypost.com/dynamic/stories/I/IRAN_MISSILES?SITE=NYNYP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2007-01-21-01-35-57

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran plans to conduct missile war games during a three-day period beginning Sunday, state-run television reported.

The war games will be carried out near Garmsar city, about 60 miles southeast of Tehran, according to the broadcast.

"Zalzal and Fajr-5 missiles will be test fired in the war game," the broadcast quoted an unnamed military commander, as saying. Both are considered short-range missiles.

The exercise will be the first by Iran since the U.N. Security Council imposed sanctions on December 23, which banned selling materials and technology that could be used in Iran's nuclear and missile programs and the freezing of assets of 10 Iranian companies and individuals.

3. These are regular maneuvers with short-range missiles
according to a longer version of the Associated Press article:

The test is well within Iranian territory. The only big deal about it
is that it comes at a sensitive time and Iran TV is hyping it.

4. Yes sensitive sense they blew up a US Drone
which we don't know if it was in the air space but I'm guessing it was

You have to add up everything
China demonstrated it could blind us militarily and making friends with south america
and Russian Missiles just bought...

Plus America's Surge and half of our navy fleet floating in the Straits of Hormuz

Ya Iranians could be hearing accelerated heart beats

7.  More games
Why not card games , no they have to be bomb and missile games . Point a gun in the wrong direction someones going to get killed .

I am so sick of military games and hardware , I have been living with this crap and threats all my life .

I doubt there will ever be a day when this all just stops , well it will when someone finally pushes the wrong/right button and it will happen , it's just a matter of time and the clock seems to be getting closer all the time .
