Nothing like a little geopolitical ruckus to spoil the fun…the fun. Xinhua reports that hours ago, and just a day before the Bushehr nuclear reactor [2]is supposed to go online, Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said that Iran had test fired a surface-to-surface missile, Qiam, footage of which was shown on state television. Surely this fits well as a time slot segue from the recent clip showing mass graves prepared for Iran’s “aggressors [3].”

And while CNBC discusses jeggings purchasing trends as the most critical development in current global economics, here is some far less relevant news from Xinnua:

Iran’s new surface-to-surface missile, Qiam, has been successfully test-fired, Vahidi said in Friday prayers in Tehran.

“Being a new class of Iranian missiles, Qiam has been equipped with new technical specifications and exceptional tactical powers, ” Vahidi was quoted as saying.

One of the features of the missile is that “it does not have flippers and this provides it with higher tactical capabilities,” the minister said.

Another feature of the missile is that the possibility of being targeted by other missiles is very low, Fars news agency quoted him as saying.

Vahidi did not specify the location and the time of the test.

Vahidi’s remarks came a day before the country’s Bushehr nuclear power plant operations startup.

Something tells us the Nielsen rating for this broadcast in Tel Aviv was one of the highest ones in 2010.
