Iranian Space Turtles

I'm sure that someone in the neocon crowd (Daniel Pipes?) will see this as an excuse for another war, but the Iranian's have a "space turtle" program:

PARIS — In what seemed designed as a display of technological advance, Iran said on Wednesday that it had fired a rocket into space carrying living organisms — a rat, two turtles and worms, according to the state-run Press TV.

Along with a rat and worms! My immediate reaction was "has anybody told PETA about this?"
Because the thought of a smackdown between PETA and Ahmadinjad is something I'd find quite entertaining.
