Iran Plans to Conduct Missile War Games
http://www.wtopnews.com/index.php?nid=105&sid=1038798

By NASSER KARIMI Associated Press Writer

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran plans three days of military maneuvers, including short-range missile tests, beginning Sunday _ its first since the U.N. Security Council imposed sanctions against it in late December, state-run television said.


"The elite Revolutionary Guards plans to begin a three-day missile maneuver on Sunday near Garmsar city," said the broadcast. The city is located in northern Iran on the edge of Kavir desert, about 60 miles southeast of Tehran.


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


Iran conducted three large-scale military exercises last year as tensions with the West and the United States rose.


In November, for example, it test-fired dozens of missiles, including the Shahab-3 that can reach Israel, in military maneuvers that it said were aimed at putting a stop to the role of world powers in the Persian Gulf region.

1. Every nation has a right to self-defense
Iran had better show off its arms to keep Imperialists at bay.

2. Meanwhile, we will continue to prod and tout them into a conflict.
Iraq would disappear from radar screens for bushco if Iran erupts. In this white house, that would be a positive.
