Iranian navy members celebrate after successfully launching a Ghader missile, at the shore of sea of Oman during Iran's navy drill on Jan. 2, 2012. Iran test-fired a surface-to-surface cruise missile during a drill that the country's navy chief said proved Tehran was in complete control of the strategic Strait of Hormuz, the passageway for one-sixth of the world's oil supply. The missile, called Ghader, or Capable in Farsi, was described as an upgraded version of a missile that has been in service before.
