Time for my weekly post on Iran. It seems that the Mullahs have a hard time to avoid the spotlight. That's good. To use Michael Ledeen's slogan: "Faster, please."

From Debka (02/06/04): "Iran's Islamic Revolutionary regime last month marked the 25th anniversary of its victory over the Shah by launching a sophisticated missile dubbed Raad and its accompanying advanced radar system designated DM-3b." [Hat tip to Blog Iran mailing list.]

For more on Iran's arsenal of weapons, read Nooredin Abedian's article, More Than Don Quixote.

UPDATE 02/11/04: President Announces New Measures to Counter the Threat of WMD.

In the news:
"United Nations inspectors have found a new type of centrifuge design in Iran and other experiments that Tehran has failed to declare, despite its claim in November that it had fully disclosed its nuclear programme." (The Financial Times, 02/11/04.)
