Omid

Iran's Revo Guard fanboi English site lights up the sky with the following communique:

Iran successfully launches its first homemade satellite carrier, Safir
1
, opening a new chapter in the country's scientific achievements.

The launch of the new rocket from Iranian soil will pave the way
for the country to send a lightweight telecommunications satellite, Omid (meaning 'hope' in Persian), into orbit in the near future.


The domestically manufactured Omid satellite will pass over the country six times a day for research purposes.


The launch of Safir 1 was aimed at improving the country's space
industries. Safir 1 tested remote sensing, Satellite telemetry, and geographic information system (GIS) technology as well as remote and ground station data processing.

Sounds familiar...

And when they actually launch a satellite into space I'll believe it.

My sources tell me that the Iranians didn't build this rocket. But the Russians gave them one. Could be. Those sneaky bastards have been selling them everything that isn't tied down.

Iranians in space. There's a vision I don't need.

And now it comes out they faked it. That only works for women in bed, not for rocket launches.

Iran won't be able to start an enrichment project...
Iran won't be able to make a plane...
Iran won't be able to make a missile...
Iran won't be able to reach space...
Iran won't be able to put a satellite in the space...

Iran won't be able to advance in nanotechnology...

Funny how someone cannot leave a name.

The day that Iran actually invents something useful from scratch call us.

Funny how it took Jews to make the first Atomic Bomb, the polio vaccine, discover the 4 blood groups, etc...

And what did the Muslim world invent?
Jihad.
