Iran to launch 3 sattelites before the end of the year, says Korea Central News Agency

From the June 24, 2011 KCNA:

Iran Plans to Launch Three Satellites This Year
Tehran, June 23 (KCNA) -- Iran will launch three more satellites in space by the end of Iranian calendar year, head of Iranian Space Agency said Thursday.

"We will take further steps in 2011 to meet our needs entirely," said Iranian President Ahmadinejad on Monday.

Hmmmm...First, interesting that it made 2 whole sentences in the North Korean newspaper, doncha think?  And second...Iranian Space Agency?  Really?  What is that, a giant slingshot and poor Assim in a space capsule with a bunch of really strong guys to pull back the rubber band?
