Iran Threatens to Hit United States Military Bases With Ballistic Missiles

Ratcheting up tensions in the Middle East — and raising the potential for conflict — a top Iranian general is warning that the Islamic Republic has missiles that can strike all U.S. military bases in the region.

According to Reuters, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, made the announcement Tuesday in response to news that the U.S. House of Representatives had voted last week for new sanctions on Iran’s missile program.

“Our missiles’ range is 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles), and that can be increased, but we believe this range is enough for the Islamic Republic as most of the U.S. forces and most of their interests in the region are within this range,” Jafari said ominously.

“Americans are trying to impose new sanctions against the Revolutionary Guards for its missile program, but that is an excuse to harm Iran’s economy,” Jafari continued.

The sanctions the House approved are only related to its missile program, and are technically separate from the Obama-era nuclear deal with Iran, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. But President Donald Trump opened the door to the action when he decertified that agreement in October, calling it the “worst deal ever made,” according to CNN.

The agreement former President Barack Obama reached with the murderous mullahs of Tehran lifted economic sanctions on Iran in return for a “limited nuclear program” to be used for benefit of its citizenry and not for the manufacture of weapons.

After it was reached in July 2015, however, even Obama administration insiders have admitted the White House manipulated the American media and ultimately deceived the American people about the true nature of the deal.

And now Iran seems to be boasting about its military capabilities in an armed conflict with the United States.

According to Fox News, Jafari sounded like a general ready to fight.

American political and military leaders “know that if they begin a war between Iran and the United States, they will definitely be the main losers and their victory will by no means be guaranteed,” Jafari said.

“Therefore, they won’t start a war,” he declared.

Considering the history of Iran has been unbridled hostility toward the United States since the Islamic Revolution of 1979, no American leader — least of all President Trump — can take these words lightly.

The more America learns about Obama’s Iran deal, and the more Iranians boast about their capabilities, the worse Obama’s legacy looks for endangering American security.

Hopefully, President Donald Trump will take the appropriate action to keep the American people and its armed forces safe, no matter where they are in the world.

North Korea Caught Trying To Aid Syria’s Chemical Weapons Program

North Korea has been caught twice in recent months trying to send Syria the materials needed to make chemical weapons, according to a United Nations report.

“The panel is investigating reported prohibited chemical, ballistic missile and conventional arms cooperation between Syria and the DPRK (North Korea),” the United Nations committee reported.

“Two member states interdicted shipments destined for Syria. Another member state informed the panel that it had reasons to believe that the goods were part of a KOMID contract with Syria,” the report stated, using the acronym for the Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation, which has been blacklisted by the Security Council for arms dealing.

The report did not say when the weapons were intercepted. The intercepted shipments were bound for Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center, which has overseen Syria’s chemical weapons program.

Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a former head of the British military’s chemical, biological and radiological weapons program, said North Korea has been selling its chemical stockpile.

“Syria’s chemical weapons program was basically built up by Iran and Russia,” he said. “But the North Koreans have been desperate for currency and have been happy to sell technology to anyone. It has always been a real concern that they would sell their chemical and nuclear expertise.

“Let’s hope it doesn’t speak to a wider involvement in the (chemical weapons) sphere, especially by the jihadis,” he said.

An organization called the Nuclear Threat Initiative said North Korea “may possess between 2,500 and 5,000 tons of (chemical warfare) agents.

“The South Korean government assesses that North Korea is able to produce most types of chemical weapons indigenously, although it must import some precursors to produce nerve agents, which it has done in the past,” the site said.

“At maximum capacity, North Korea is estimated to be capable of producing up to 12,000 tons of CW. Nerve agents such as Sarin and VX are thought to be the focus of North Korean production,” it said.

In April, Syria used chemical weapons to attack a rebel-held village, prompting an armed response form the United States.
