    Barely upgraded WWII technology.

    The WWII era V1 had almost 5 times the payload, albeit with a shorter range. But if you trade off payload for fuel, the V1 comes pretty close to the specs of Iran's new toy.

    Not real impressive....

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    "Ambassador of death"...sounds like the 'Death star' project designed by Dr. Evil.

    I wonder does Ahmadinejad have a dwarf clone named Mini-me?

    It's even funnier when you look at some of the pictures - the Ambassador of Death appears on a stage ringer with flowers. What is this, the TelleTubby army?

    You are wrong, for them it is high tech (at least that is what Iran’s president appears to believe ). The “ambassador of death”, it sounds so ridiculous

    Ahmadinejad wont be satisfied until he has a missile strike headed his way. And if the Israelis ever get the nod from the Saudis to pass threw their airspace it might come sooner rather than later.
