It was impossible to get anyone in the American media to print letters to the editor which contained technical facts that made it clear that the Bush administration was making claims which were not true. It has been 106 years since Tsiolkovsky published his Rocket Equation. This equation is still true, and immutable. A solid propellent rocket capable of flying 60 kilometers and delivering any significant payload has to be a substantial device. Iran produces a large number of artillery rockets. The only one with a range over about 45 km and under 100 km is quite large. Those with a longer range are huge. The assertion that the rocket was Iranian seems odd as the Fajr-5 is not something that could be smuggled easily. Nor can it be handled and launched easily. The rocket tested was sent out to sea, and we are to believe it was Iranian. It might be. If it was then Israel's blockade has a huge hole in it. Or it could be that the Gaza Gang has continued to improve their rockets.
