Those Peaceful Mohammadians

Usually I don't post about political matters but this is, in my humble opinion, not just a political matter. The Associated Press reports this gem from Tehran:

Iran said it successfully tested another new torpedo Monday, the latest weapon unveiled during war games in the Gulf. The torpedo can target submarines at any depth and is powerful enough to "break a heavy warship" in two, a spokesman for Iran’s Revolutionary Gaurds, Gen. Mohammad Ebrahim Dehghani, told state television. He did not announce the name of the new torpedo or give details on its speed or range. On Sunday, Iran announced it had tested a different torpedo, the new high-speed "Hoot," which means "whale." It moves at up to 223 mph, and Iran said it was too fast for any enemy ship to elude. On Friday, Iran tested the Fjr-3, a missile that can avoid radar and hit several targets simultaneously using multiple warheads. The Revolutionary Guards, the elite force of Iran's military, have been holding their maneuvers — code-named "Great Prophet" — since Friday, touting what they call domestically built technological advances in their armed forces.

Ok, let me see if I'm understanding this right: naming a war game exercise where the object is to practice killing people after your "great prophet", that's good, drawing a cartoon depicting your prophet with a bomb on his head, that's bad. I just a little unclear on all of this. I thought the Mohammadians were a peaceful people. Nope, as it so happens, they are not.
