  • U.S. confirms Iran tested nuclear-capable ballistic missile

    As Obama is telling us we can trust Iran to follow his treaty with them, they break the currant treaty they have with us. This deal with Iran is insanity.

    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - The United States has confirmed that Iran tested a medium-range missile capable of delivering a nuclear weapon, in "clear violation" of a United Nations Security Council ban on ballistic missile tests, a senior U.S. official said on Friday.
    "The United States is deeply concerned about Iran's recent ballistic missile launch," the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said in a statement.
    "After reviewing the available information, we can confirm that Iran launched on Oct. 10 a medium-range ballistic missile inherently capable of delivering a nuclear weapon," she said. "This was a clear violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1929."
    The United States is preparing a report on the incident for the Security Council's Iran Sanctions Committee and will raise the matter directly with Security Council members "in the coming days," Power said.
    Council diplomats have told Reuters it was possible to sanction additional Iranian individuals or entities by adding them to an existing U.N. blacklist. However, they noted that Russia and China, which have opposed the sanctions on Iran's missile program, might block any such moves.
    "The Security Council prohibition on Iran's ballistic missile activities, as well as the arms embargo, remain in place," Power said. "We will continue to press the Security Council for an appropriate response to Iran's disregard for its international obligations."
    Ballistic missile tests by Iran are banned under Security Council resolution 1929, which was adopted in 2010 and remains valid until a nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers goes into effect. Under that deal, reached on July 14, most sanctions on Iran will be lifted in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
    The missile test is not a violation of the nuclear deal, which focuses on Iran's atomic program, U.S. officials have said. Speaking to reporters in Washington, President Barack Obama acknowledged that the nuclear deal does not fully resolve all areas of dispute with Tehran.
    "So we are going to have to continue to put pressure on them through the international community," he said.
    Once the deal takes effect, Iran will still be "called upon" to refrain from undertaking any work on ballistic missiles designed to deliver nuclear weapons for a period of up to eight years, according to a Security Council resolution adopted in July.
    Countries would be allowed to transfer missile technology and heavy weapons to Iran on a case-by-case basis with council approval.
    However, in July a U.S. official called this provision meaningless and said the United States would veto any suggested transfer of ballistic missile technology to Iran.
    On Sunday, the United States, the European Union and Iran are expected to announce a series of measures to comply with the nuclear deal that will take effect once the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency confirms Iranian compliance with terms of the agreement.

    I dunno what to say about this, other than it should be expected. Obama's deal was deeply flawed, everybody knew it (another calculated failure?). The House rejected it on 9/11. Iran formally rejected it, on 10/13 and proposed an amended one. Meanwhile, Iran is not operating under a nuclear treaty. And Israel's trigger finger is itchy.

      Thanks for the reply Barry.

      Yes, the situation with Iran may be the most dangerous in the world today.

      If they get nuclear weapons the world is in for a very serious situation.

      Maybe the most serious situation it has ever faced in the natural realm.

        I agree, this is perhaps the most dangerous thing we face so far. Occam's Razor, in my opinion. It is what the globalists want, to make problems so big that the nations have to give up their sovereignty and come together to overcome them.

          Good comments. We may not know what the globalists want, but we do know what the one they follow wants. Satan wants to destroy Israel and the US. We know that Satan inspires the leaders of Iran and who do they threaten to destroy constantly; Israel and the US. Islam is from Satan. A god that does not love and tells his followers to kill everyone that disagrees with them. There is no difference between the NAZI's and Islam. Same principles in a little different packaging.

          Satan wants to destroy Israel because it was the nation that God started from Abraham, and the US because it is the new Israel. God led the Pilgrims to their promised land where they could worship him as he told them to. They were freed from the church of England which had oppressed them for obeying The Lord instead of the leaders of the church.

          If one reads "The Light and The Glory" they will see that God led the Pilgrims here and preformed miracles for them at every turn. The miracles are really outstanding and are impossible to believe that they happened by chance.

          Satan wants a global government because one small group of greedy super rich men who are sold out to his principles are easy to control compared to a nation where everyone has rights.

          Satan inspired Hitler, Stalin and Japan to try to take over the world. The one nation most responsible for stopping them was the US.

          He hates the US and wants to destroy it. Obama is following him either unaware or aware.

            Superb commentaries, both Barry and Lou. I was listening to a radio station yesterday and a retired Pentagon official said he was concerned that not only is Russia becoming deeply involved with troops in the Middle East, but Iran had also had deployed forces near Syria. Then he went on to mention the surge of recent violence in Israel and believed that this was not a mere coincidence, but possibly planned.

              Always good to hear from you Tom. It is good to have fellowship with our brothers. Although we are not face to face, it is still good.

              Yes, all these events are very troubling. It is a good thing we do not put our trust in nations.
