Yay for Iranian satellites!

I mean that sincerely. The U.S.' fears are bullshit considering that the stated purpose is telecommunications. You know, we have thousands of satellites up there, and our own extensive space program, but the second a third world country like Iran that has first world ambitions launches one it's a big deal. So we can add no presence in space to the list of things that Iran is now not allowed to do, the other one being establishing nuclear reactors and possibly nuclear weapons, which are things possessed by France, Germany, the U.S., India, Pakistan, China, and Russia...and Israel. But Iran, well, they're a threat. Never mind what goes on at Dimona. Iran's crime is wanting to act like they're something other than colonial subjects who can be dominated by first world powers.
