Iran's military said Friday it successfully test-fired a missile not detectable by radar that can use multiple warheads to hit several targets simultaneously.

"Today, a remarkable goal of the Islamic Republic of Iran's defense forces was realized with the successful test-firing of a new missile with greater technical and tactical capabilities than those previously produced," Salami said on television, which showed a brief clip of the missile's launch. "It can avoid anti-missile missiles and strike the target," the general said. He said the missile would carry a multiple warhead, and each warhead would be capable of hitting its target precisely.

The tests come amid growing concern over Iran's nuclear program. The United States and its allies believe Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, but Tehran denies that, saying its nuclear program is for generating electricity. The U.N. Security Council is demanding that Iran halt its uranium enrichment activities. But an Iranian envoy said its activities are "not reversible."


General Salami?

It's probably pronounced differently over there. Sol-ah-my would be my guess.

I don't think so...
I believe it means "peace"...as in "mah Sah-LA-mee",(at least in the Egyptian pronounciation. I guess the Syrians say "mah Sah-LAM") which is a salutation in Arabic wishing the person peace. You can say it when meeting someone or when leaving them.

So, still kind of funny, a general whose name means "peace".
