It’s been a busy weekend for our most important Middle Eastern partners for peace, the Iranians. Friday, 08/20/2010:

Iran’s defense minister says military forces have successfully test-fired a missile with enhanced guidance systems to hit ground targets.

Iran has crossed a new nuclear threshold, but it’s one the Obama administration isn’t worried about.


“Because the Bush administration did such a good job of neutralizing the Bushehr reactor, we don’t view it as a proliferation threat,” said a White House official, who requested anonymity to discuss the issue freely.

Some experts, however, disagree. They warn that Iran could still use Bushehr to enhance its uranium enrichment program – located some 300 miles away at Natanz – that the U.N. Security Council is demanding be halted amid charges that it is part of a secret nuclear arms development project. Iran denies the allegation.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is hailing the country’s first domestically built drone bomber.  The unmanned aircraft, unveiled Sunday, is the latest in a series of Iranian announcements of military advances.

Somehow I doubt President Obama’s assurances are having much impact on Israeli planning. Israel doesn’t have the luxury of being that stupid.
