'Peaceful' Iran fires several different types of missiles

They keep telling us about their peaceful intentions, but over the last two days, Iran has test-fired a radar-evading surface-to-air missile and two long range missiles. This is from the first link.
Iran test-fired a new medium-range missile, designed to evade radars, on Sunday during the last days of its naval drill in the Gulf, the official IRNA news agency quoted a military official as saying.

The 10-day naval exercise coincided with increased tension in Iran's nuclear row with Western powers. Iranian state television reported Sunday that it successfully produced and tested fuel rods for its nuclear power plants.

"The mid-range surface to air missile which is equipped with the latest sophisticated anti-radar technologies has been successfully test-fired," Deputy Navy Commander Mahmoud Mousavi told IRNA.
And this is from the second link.
"We have test fired a long-range shore-to-sea missile called Qader (capable), which managed to successfully destroy predetermined targets in the Gulf," deputy Navy Commander Mahmoud Mousavi told the official news agency IRNA. Later Monday, Mousavi added that "our Nour surface-to-surface long range missile was also successfully launched."

Mousavi said observers from the country's closest Arab ally, Syria, would attend the last day of its 10-day naval exercise.
You all keep telling yourselves that Iran has no intention of using those missiles.

What could go wrong?
