For this week's agenda we speak to Marcus Mabry, international business editor for The New York Times; and from London, Jonathan Marcus, diplomatic correspondent for the BBC World Service. We look at Iran and what the international community's response will be to Tehran's test-firing short- and medium-range missiles, and the acknowledgment of a second nuclear enrichment plant. We also consider whether President Obama will follow requests from General McChrystal and Republicans about sending more troops to Afghanistan. And, China celebrates 60 years of communist rule.

[In one mention of this story this morning, we said that Roman Polanski was picked up on a "31-year-old charge," which a listener correctly pointed out was incomplete: Polanski was charged, tried, pleaded guilty, and fled the country before being sentenced. -Eds]
