Iran Test-Fires A New, Precision-Guided Ballistic Missile

Iran has test -fired nuclear warhead capable precision-guided ballistic missile on more than one occasion since Barack Hussein Obama, John Kerry, and nations such as China, Russia, France and Germany conspired to lift sanctions against Iran, restore literally billions of frozen assets to the murderous Anti-West, Anti-Israel fascist nation of Iran — and what statements come out of the U.S. government? Such infractions of the anti-nuclear treaty WILL NOT DERAIL or RECONSIDER the nuclear deal the treasonous and dangerous Barack Hussein Obama administration, and evil U.S. State Department struck with the single-minded murderous Islamic state called Iran: Make no mistake. Iran is in high gear to build and stock a massive nuclear weapons program and their first target will be Israel. And the current United States  regime does nothing — NOTHING — to prevent this. Instead we aid and abet this evil.

“The Emad missile is able to strike targets with a high level of precision and completely destroy them … This greatly increases Iran’s strategic deterrence capability,” Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said at a televised news conference, according to Reuters.

Dehqan said that this is the first long-range missile that can be precision guided all the way to its target.

The question now is whether the apparently successful test violates the terms of Iran’s nuclear agreement with the United States and five other world powers.

As The New York Times reports, a resolution passed by the United Nations shortly after a deal was struck in Vienna specifies that Iran is not allowed to develop missiles “designed to carry nuclear warheads.”

The Times reports:

“In recent decades, with Iran’s air force plagued by economic sanctions and other restrictions, the country has invested heavily in its nuclear program and has produced missiles that can reach as far as Europe.

“‘We don’t seek permission from anyone to strengthen our defense and missile capabilities,’ Mr. Dehghan said.”

Reuters adds:

“Michael Elleman, senior fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), said it would probably take Iran ‘many years… and dozens of flight tests’ to master the new guidance technology.

“In August, Iran unveiled a new short-range missile named Fateh-313, which it said also offered improved precision over its predecessor, as part of an apparent drive to upgrade the accuracy of its missile arsenal.

“‘What has become increasingly clear is Iran’s desire to enhance missile accuracy and lethality, a priority that very likely supersedes the need for seeking longer-range missiles,’ Elleman said.”
