Another Obama Victory--Iran Now Attempting To Have Missiles
The rogue regime of Iran reportedly stepped up its provocations Tuesday by attempting to launch a cruise missile from a submarine in the Strait of Hormuz, which runs between the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman.
According to Fox News, an Iranian Yono-class submarine conducted the missile launch. The only other country with this type of submarine is North Korea, which is interesting, given that much like North Korea’s recent hash of missile launches, Iran’s launch also reportedly failed.
The launch was nevertheless a major concern, as it was only three months ago that the regime last performed a submarine-based missile launch. That one was successful.
“Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said the Nasir missile, which he described as Iran’s latest submarine-launched cruise missile, ‘successfully hit its target’ during its test launch,” The Times of Israel reported in late February.
Moreover, Iran has recently taken to “purchasing sophisticated weapons from Russia, including air-defense systems, nuclear assistance and possibly fighter jets and tanks,” as noted by The Washington Times.
To make matters worse, the equipment being obtained by the rogue regime would reportedly make it significantly more difficult for the United States and Israel to ever carry out successful airstrikes on Iranian nuclear facilities.
Couple this with the fact that the country has increased its defense budget by nearly 145 percent under President Hassan Rouhani, according to Iranian officials cited by the Washington Free Beacon, and it becomes exceedingly clear that the threat posed by this terrorism-funding regime is on the rise.
The buildup also suggests that the Iranians do not take very seriously the Trump administration’s plan to “put Iran on the front burner and take a far more aggressive posture toward Tehran’s provocative moves across the Middle East than the Obama administration did,” as reported by The Washington Times.
Well, this might need to change — and sooner rather than later — because having Iran behaving like North Korea is simply unacceptable and should not be tolerated.
