(Newser) – It's a day ending in Y, so Iran is saber-rattling: Tehran today kicked off five days of war games, reports the Wall Street Journal. On the agenda: tests of long-range missiles, radar systems, and air defenses, as part of a general warning to any would-be attackers not to get any big ideas. The posturing comes just weeks ahead of planned multilateral talks about Iran's nuclear program.
