Iran has test-fired a precision air-to-surface missile with a 70-mile range, a news agency reported Sunday, a capability that could threaten ships in the Persian Gulf. Iran's semiofficial Fars New Agency cited unnamed Iranian military experts saying the 1,100-pound missiles mounted on jet fighters include an "automatic guidance capability" and a "special warhead" for destroying large ships. The U.S. Navy keeps dozens of warships off the Iranian coast in the Persian Gulf to escort oil tankers and serve as a check against Iran's ambitions.

barikalla, what about the economy?

Not a day goes by when we don't hear some rocket, missile, satellite, or fighter plane accomplishment by Iran.  What we never hear about is what is being done to fix the ailing Iranian economy.  I wonder where that item is on the gentlemen's to-do-list.
