It's a Patas monkey. Weighs about 3lbs, tops.

Our University rocket club lobbed a 10 lb instrument package up 100 miles and recovered it with no damage (well, there was a bit of damage to the house it landed on) back in the early 70's.

Iran, welcome to the early 1960s.

Iran, welcome to the early 1960s.
Worth knowing what they are doing, and what they are capable of. Would be wise to get somebody besides the CIA to do this, given the ineptitude of ou7r CIA; which missed the USSR's collapse, missed 9/11/2001, etc.

Oh!  I thought maybe the "war hero", John "Lurch" Kerry, was in Iran visiting his friends and offered to be the monkey for the mission. :da man:
When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man [Sir William Keith], who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.
