He's only gone and bleedin' done it

The other day I suggested it was time for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was about due another attention seeking tantrum (1). Right on cue, here he goes:

Iran announced the successful test-launch yesterday of an "advanced technology" missile capable of hitting Israel and US bases in the Gulf.

In a move that some analysts saw as a response to the meeting on Monday between US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Sejil 2 missile had "landed exactly on the target".

The launch, which Mr Ahmadinejad said had taken place earlier in the day, may also have been timed to coincide with the official start of campaigning for the 12 June election.

The President faces challenges by critics of his stridently anti-Israel and anti-Western rhetoric. At a rally in the northern Selman province, where the official Iranian news agency IRNA said the launch had taken place, Mr Ahmadinejad said Iran had the power to "send to hell" any military base from which "a bullet" was fired against the country. State television showed footage of a missile soaring into the sky, followed by a vapour trail. (2)

Unfortunately, in the same post, I also predicted that if this occurred, I'd be arrested on suspicion of hacking into top secret government files. No sign of the NWO goons yet, but I'm expecting them any time.

Hang on, the dog's barking ...
