Looks like Iran is still a threat to democracy

The ultra-establishment AP Wire reports (via the Montery Country Herald) that Iran is gaining in the missile-building business of war:
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran said for the first time Wednesday it has fully developed solid-fuel technology in producing missiles, a major breakthrough that increases the accuracy of missiles hitting targets.

Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani told The Associated Press that Iran has made an "important step forward" in developing the technology, which provides the Islamic Republic with the ability to fire solid-fuel ballistic missiles like the Shahab-3.

The Shahab-3, with a range of 810 miles to more than 1,200 miles, is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and reaching Israel and U.S. forces in the Middle East.

"We have fully achieved proficiency in solid-fuel technology in producing missiles," said Shamkhani in Iran's first declaration that it has locally developed full access to solid fuel missile technology.

Such technology enables the production of solid fuel, which makes missiles more durable and dramatically increases their accuracy in reaching targets. Missiles using liquid fuel are short-lived.
And the Mehr News from Iran itself also confirms this:
TEHRAN, July 27 (MNA) -- In a formal letter to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Mohamed ElBaradei, Iran has announced that it is prepared to resume nuclear activities at some nuclear centers in the next few days, a European diplomat said in Vienna on Wednesday.
This should pretty much confirm that Iran is still as bad today as it was when they waged a war with Iraq back in the 1980s, and shows just why they too will have to be democratized, though who knows if the Bush administration is going to take any convincing steps for that? Don't overestimate either a Republican or a Democratic led government on even this. Iraq, after all, came up with a racist "bill of rights" when they said that Jews were not allowed to live in the country or to have citizenship there.
