Curious George Classic 21" Plush Doll

Don't they know monkeys are infidels? The should launch Ahmadinejad instead.
MOSCOW, April 20 (RIA Novosti)Iran plans to launch a monkey into space in mid-September, the ISNA news agency said on Wednesday, citing Iranian Space Agency head Hamid Fazeli.

The monkey will be sent into orbit in a capsule carried by the Kavoshgar-4 (or Explorer-4), rocket, which was test-launched with a monkey doll on board in mid-March.

Iran announced an ambitious space program in the mid-2000s. The country launched the Kavoshgar 1 rocket into space in February 2008.
The Kavoshgar 2 rocket, carrying a space lab and a restoration system, was launched in November 2008.
In February 2010, the Kavoshgar 3 rocket reportedly carried a test capsule with a rat, a turtle and worms into space.

Hmmm gonna go out on a limb here and say that the "Iran Space Agency" has Russian fingerprints all over it......

The only thing that an Islamofascist theocracy is capable of launching is human wave suicide attack by selling it as "a 72-virgin paradise".....
