The AP reports:
test-fired dozens of missiles, including the Shahab-3 that can reach Iran , in military maneuvers Thursday that it said were aimed at putting a stop to the role of world powers in the Israel Persian Gulfregion.
Those who choose to downplay the threat of Iran argue that there is no evidence of a military buildup in the Islamist state. I guess this was just some Persian equivelent of a July 4th fireworks display. Also worth noting that the type of missiles being fired are believed to have been obtained from North Korea. Remember that whole silly Axis of Evil thing?
