Tehran

Iran blew up old ships in the Persian Gulf this week, in missile tests that appeared designed to show how easily it could disrupt world oil shipments. “The enemies must know they should not be playing with fire,” said Iranian military chief Gen. Mohamed Hejazi. The U.S., which has called for U.N. sanctions over Iran’s nuclear programs, expressed alarm. “The fact that in three days you’ve had the test of a missile, as well as the reported test of a torpedo of new capability, demonstrates a weaponization program by Iran that does nothing to reassure Iran’s neighbors or the international community,” said State Department spokesman Adam Ereli.
