According to state media sources, Iran tested nine of its long and medium range missiles in July which are capable of reaching bases in Israel and the US. These activities aggravated the prevailing tension between Iran and Israel over the former's nuclear program which, according to sources in Tehran, is not for developing weapons but for electricity. The US has condemned Iran for its latest weapons-testing.

Something that has interested me for quite a while. We are taught as we grow up that grass is green, the sky is blue and Guinness is black. We have names for colors, which are based on examples. However light does not have color and so how do we know that what I see as green someone else sees as pink. We all have the same examples to allow the naming but our experience may well be different.
