By the end of September a Russian Cosmos 3 missile will be launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome 800 km north of Moscow, carrying two Iranian satellites into orbit. Although the satellites are claimed to be for meteorological and experimental purposes, experts believe that one of them will possess surveillance capabilities allowing it to observe American and Israeli military facilities throughout the Middle East. More importantly, experts believe that the Iranian space program serves as a cover for developing more advanced long-range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
Iranian President-Elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Ahmadi-Nejad)
Iranian President Elect:
"I Can Control the Americans -Iranian President-Elect Boasts of Role in 1979 Embassy Take-over Found in Farsi Language Documents
I Have Experience Doing It"
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a dangerous man. I would never trust him, nor believe any promises he makes to the USA....NO, not ever! To allow Iran to have two Iranian satellites.............is bad news and should be stopped if possible.

I’m wondering who is doing the technical work for the Iranians. I know they aren’t because they don’t have the technical expertise or the drive to do it.
Back in the spring of 1979, before the embassy takeover, I attended advanced aircraft electronics training at Chanute AFB. In my class were two Iranian NCO’s, one was the equivalent of an E-9, the other an E-5. These guys were the Cream of the Crop of Iranian NCO’s. Although they were both nice guys, in the technical aspect they were worthless. They couldn’t grasp the simplest principals of electronics and aircraft systems they were training for. At times they were disruptive in class and really didn’t care if they learned anything. You see, at that time they still had American Technical Advisors in Iran who did all the work.
The USAF instructors weren’t allowed to wash out the Iranian students because when sent back to Iran, they would be executed for bringing disgrace upon their country. Believe me, another NCO and I were constantly complaining about the disruptions and slowed instruction to accommodate the Iranians. This wasn’t just with the students in my class; this was throughout the training center.

WoW! Thank you so much for sharing about this.
I wonder now too, since what you told me sure means they don't have the technical expertise.
