Russki Bushehr workers get early wake up call

Remember reading about the recent Iranian UFO and subsequent test of their missile defense system?

Well, evidently some Russians got an early wake-up call as a result: Russia raps Iran's missile practice near Bushehr.

Sergei Novikov, a spokesman for Russia's atomic agency Rosatom, said tests of what he believed were air defense rockets had been carried out on April 6 at 5 a.m. near the plant where 2,000 (2000!) Russians work."Russian specialists weren't warned about this practice and were woken up by the artillery roar, which of course, in our view, creates tension on the site and disrupts their work," he said by telephone.

And we certainly wouldn't want to disrupt Iran's acquisition of nuclear technology, would we?
