While the American people are constantly being reassured by our “leaders” that the Iranian nuclear deal was a good one, Iran repeatedly tells us otherwise. Their most recent message to the world — and more specifically, Barack Obama and the US — may be the worst one yet, as they’ve again test-fired two missiles. Marked with 5 chilling words, they’ve more than made their intentions clear.
Iran has breached international agreements for at least the second time this week, Yahoo! News reports. As if test-firing ballistic missiles isn’t bad enough, the Islamic Republic made sure Obama got their bold declaration of intentions, marking two ballistic missiles with a disturbing 5 word phrase.
Perfectly timed to send a clear message to the Obama administration, coinciding with Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel, the missiles were marked with the phrase “Israel must be wiped out,” written in Hebrew as a show of force.
While such phrases have been emblazoned on Iranian missiles before, this test comes shortly after the implementation of a nuclear deal with world powers, including the U.S., and follows similar drills in recent days, Yahoo! News further explains. Here’s more from the source:
Hard-liners in Iran’s military have fired rockets and missiles despite U.S. objections since the deal, as well as shown underground missile bases on state television.
There was no immediate reaction from Jerusalem, where Biden was meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who strongly opposed the nuclear deal.
Biden, speaking next to Netanyahu, did not acknowledge the missile launch directly but he issued a strong warning to the Iranians.
“A nuclear-armed Iran is an absolutely unacceptable threat to Israel, to the region and the United States. And I want to reiterate which I know people still doubt here. If in fact they break the deal, we will act,” he said.
This week’s series of tests have included short-, medium- and long-range precision guided missiles with ranges of between 300 and 2,000 kilometres, state media reported.
“The reason we have designed these missiles with such a range — 2,000 kilometres — is to be able to hit our remote enemies, the Zionist regime,” Hajizadeh said, referring to Israel. [General Amir Ali Hajizadeh heads the Revolutionary Guards’ aerospace wing.]
“But there is no need to fire missiles to destroy the Zionist regime as it will gradually collapse. Our main enemy is the US,” he said.
Earlier this week, Allen West reported that Iran threatened to walk away from the nuclear deal if the United States and other global powers failed to advance the Islamic Republic’s “national interests.” This most recent demonstration is a stark reminder of exactly what Iran’s key “national interests” involve.
This is one time that it really doesn’t feel good to be able to look at the Obama administration and say, “I told ya so.” While both Israel and our own nation need our prayers, there’s something else we need to do. We must let our leaders know that they got us into this mess and expect them to get us out. This is Democrat foreign policy at its “finest.” Remember that when you are casting votes in November. Our next commander-in-chief will likely be dealing with a nuclear-armed Iran, which has its sights set on our destruction.
