Iran debuted video footage of the country's new long-range ballistic missile test.
The rocket — named Emad, which means "pillar" — is Iran's most advanced weapon because it's the country's first missile that can be guided until the moment of impact. And though we're not sure exactly how powerful it is, the test is being seen as a sign of aggression. (Video via Islamic Republic of Iran News Network)
Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan was quoted by IRNA, the nation's state-run news agency, saying, "We won’t seek permission from anyone to increase our defense power and our missile capabilities." (Video via RT)
