Iran Defies Trump: Carries Out More Missile Tests, Threatens Enemies With "Roaring Missiles"

Tyler Durden's picture

Iran does appears to not be taking Trump's escalating threats too seriously, because just one day after the US imposed restrictions on 25 Iranian individuals and entities in response to a ballistic missile test last week (a move which provoked Tehran to answer by saying it would disclose the names of US individuals and companies involved in "helping and founding" terrorist groups), Iran carried out more missile tests during a military exercise on Saturday

According to Iran's semi-official Tasnim agency, which cited Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ aerospace division, Iran successfully tested a range of land-to-land missiles and radar systems during the drills in a 35,000 square-kilometer stretch of desert in the northern Iranian province of Semnan.

"If we see the smallest misstep from the enemies, our roaring missiles will fall on their heads," the brigadier general was cited as telling reporters on the sidelines of the military trials, without referring to any particular nations. Any threats made by the U.S. against Iran were "nonsensical,” Tasnim cited him as saying. Hajizadeh also said tat Iran would use its missiles if its security is under threat, and added that "we are working day and night to protect Iran’s security," head of Revolutionary Guards' aerospace unit, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards is holding the military exercise in Semnan province on Saturday to test missile and radar systems and to "showcase the power of Iran's revolution and to dismiss the sanctions," according to the force's website.

Dismissing Trump's comments that "nothing is off the table" in dealing with Tehran, the commander of Iran's ground forces said on Saturday that the Islamic Republic has been hearing such threats since its 1979 revolution. "The defence capability and the offensive prowess of Iran's armed forces would make America or any other enemy regretful of any incursion," Ahmad Reza Pourdastan was quoted as saying by ISNA.

Iranian state news agencies reported that home-made missile systems, radars, command and control centres, and cyber warfare systems would be tested in Saturday's drill. Iran has one of the Middle East's largest missile programmes and held a similar exercise in December to showcase its defence systems, including radars, anti-missile defence units, and short and medium-range missiles.

Tehran confirmed on Wednesday that it had test-fired a new ballistic missile, but said the test did not breach the Islamic Republic's nuclear agreement with world powers or a U.N. Security Council resolution endorsing the pact.

Despite the heated words, Reuters reports that U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Saturday he was not considering raising the number of U.S. forces in the Middle East to address Iran's "misbehavior", but warned that the world would not ignore Iranian activities.

Meanwhile, the UN Security Council held an emergency meeting last Tuesday and recommended the missile testing be studied at committee level after the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, called the test "unacceptable". The Security Council resolution was adopted to buttress the deal under which Iran curbed its nuclear activities to allay concerns they could be used to develop atomic bombs, in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.

The resolution urged Tehran to refrain from work on ballistic missiles designed to deliver nuclear weapons. Critics say the resolution's language does not make this obligatory. Tehran says it has not carried out any work on missiles specifically designed to carry nuclear payloads.

As of this morning it appears that Trump has not learned yet about Iran's latest defiant actions, as he has so far focused on "so-called judges" in his morning battery of tweets and has failed to mention Iran yet during his first weekend retreat to his Mar-a-Lago winter retreat in Palm Beach. Instead moments ago he simply tweeted...

I am sure between the two of them they can manage to instigate yet another war. What else to expect when the nuclear deal is off the table?

Name the terrorists in the US!! I want to see McCain fry!

Pliskin's picture

We'd all like to see McCain fry, but it doesn't matter who they name or what evidence they have...nothing will be done, nothing will be done by the U.S. nothing will be done by the EU, nothing will be done by the U.N.

Most of us here, most of the 'so-called' Alt News crowd KNOW that Saudi, Turkey and the Gulf States have been arming and funding ISIS, with a little help from the U.S. deep state, but nothing will be, or has been done.

Sickening. 

And as for Mattis saying that Iran are the main sponsors of terrorism, he's either an idiot (I don't think he is!) or he's already been bought and paid for by the house of Saud and the Israelis.

Sure, go to war with Iran Mr. Trump, let's see all those bodybags wrapped in the stars and stripes flag coming home, Make Israel Greater Again!

Sickening!

The only way to fight Iran is with nukes. Israel can do this and defend its borders. The crux is that Iran controls Iraq now so that means fighting Iraq too.

Obama really fucked up the Middle East. I think the best is to pull all US troops, focus on domestic front, let thes guys chop each other up and call it a day. Exceptions are teaming up with Russia to destroy Isis and keeping Israel as a land based aircraft carrier.

But make no mistake, if Israel hits Iran without Telling the US - who should move troops out of Iraq immediately - Iranian militias would destroy all US soldiers in Iraq and let the dogs eat them.

Nice Rubiks Cube Obama left Presidnt Trump. Obama was the worst fucking disaster to ever hit the Middle East.

Wait what? Certainly no fan of the boy king, but Jesus H Christ you left out a few steps did you not? See, this is the trouble with revisionist history, at some point it's all bullshit. When exactly did that invasion occur? Should we also not include the first Gulf war, or should we go back even further. Who exactly set up these "tinpot" dictators, supplied them, showered them with love (weapons, cash, intel) and then when they got a bit full of themselves, Langley and the neocon folks decide, new game!

That's the trouble with election upsets, a changin of the guard. They induce massive doses of convenient amnesia, which btw, is not unique to one party affiliation or the other. No wonder these pols have their way with the  citizenry on a consistent basis ...

all good points to dimycp, i've been wondering if tptb didn't jettison hitlery & sweep in donald to unleash the same turmoil war causes, certainly enough to provide time to cover & steal all they need to before beginning the real war?

My "gut" tells me the folks in the know, know the jig is up. I do not believe that they just discovered the fact yesterday. Something is afoot, more that can be seen or forseen. The grand chess board has been flipped over. Your wrecking ball theory, while elites fight rear guard action to delay a bit longer, is as plausible as any. Let's face it, the entire thing can be pulled down at any time, with any number of possible (known) catalysts, let alone the flock of black swans now circling like common vultures.

Don't be naive. Iran is huge, rugged and well dug in. They can absorb more nukes than the USA or "Israel" would dare use on them, yet "Israel" is an absolute certainty to cease to exist by conventional means within 48 hours of Iran and Hezbollah letting loose with their arsenals pointed at the fake state. You will never conquer Iran without starting WWIII but even trying it will ensure Rothschildlandia is sletted from the history books once and for all. They literally will pepper the whole postage stamp sized strip of land with missiles of every size. It won't even be radioactive so can be planted with crops soon after.

Well I hope you are correct, that blowback may for once, work in the interests of the American people, hell the globe even. Because this shit needs to stop, like yesterday. Now, here is what he is up against, the US (deep state) sponsoring terrorism, while epically (claiming) that we're battling terrorism ... That is a mighty big game to unravel, and the real power structures ain't gonna play ball. This is for absolutely, ALL of the marbles ....

Trump married off his sons and oldest daughter to jews.  His youngest daughter is hooked up with a jew, who was then made an intern at a Trump company.  Trump did not do so because he was planning to resist the takeover of the US by the jews but because he was making a place for his family (and himself without having to marry one) on their ship.  Let me say again, every offspring of Trump with someone picked a jew, every one chose a jew, every one of them chose a jew.  4 out of 4 chose a jew.

Trump said in a quote that he supported - Israel 100 percent then correct that and said 1000 percent. 

There appears to be two factions of jews fighting for the final taking of the US.  Both will serve Israel first and the goy do not matter.  If events seem to benefit the goy that is just a side effect not the purpose.

I'll tell what's explosive....if these out of control assholes attack an Iranian vessel or plane.......there's gonna be a bright flash somewhere in Flyover County, Bumfuck, USA and it's going to cease to exist......the whole county.......and the next email to Mr. Asshole Bigmouth Nutcase Fucking Clown that I, we, you voted for is going to say, "Go ahead and fire motherfucker, you and shitville have 20 seconds."

Do you do stand-up, too? Maybe on Saturday night dinner theater at a Motel 6?

Trump is a 'macho guy'? Trump is a fatboy chickenhawk, who has never served and never heard a shot fired in anger. He did the Bayda raid simply because he and Bannon wanted to get started killing people. He's Mr. Small Hands trying to compensate. No doubt the first time Melania saw him in the buff, she said "Donny, you're the only man in the world who can still do concealed carry when he's buck naked."

You think?  I'm not seeing it. Trump is not an idiot. He has already shown he is ready to lie. He has adopted the whole War on Terror plabook. How can he make much change to that now?

Iran has the same right to nukes as everybody else. You dont like it, then cry cry, baby.

Make Iran great again. Iran first for Iranians.

 

Rabbitnexus's picture

Just to be clear though, Iran is under a Fatwa from both the previous and current Ayatollah, which forbids Iran from using nukes and states categorically that their use is un-Islamic. I am a Shia Muslim. Please believe me there is NO WAY anybody can go against that inside of Iran. Not even the Ayatollah can reverse the Fatwa as I read it. To do so would contradict some very specific wording and the result would be his own removal from office. 

I know most non-Shias won't know this but the fact is the Ayatollah is actually serving at the pleasure of the people he leads. If he is seen to deviate his removal would be a matter of some political wrangling only briefly before the Shia Muslims would rise up and make it happen. There are others in His family who can serve. He is the direct lineage to the Prophet Muhammad and as such all the prophets going back to Jesus, Abraham and Moses and all the rest. Another thing most Westerners don't know. All the prophets came from one lineage. Muhammad was of that lineage.

Iran testing more missiles does not make Trump look bad.

It makes Obama look bad.

And it shows what a horrible, foolish deal Obama made and how it empowered Iran (a truly evil State though the Iranian people are for the most part good people) and put no restrictions on them.

Obama.

The big-eared fool.

Right now it is playing out as I expected.  Give them some sort of deal.  Once they break multiple terms in that deal, maybe sanction more.  I hope it doesn't reach the final stage, invasion.  It is the same shit the U.S. did in Iraq.

dogismycopilot's picture

US Spooks told me six months before sanctions came off Obama was just going to make it happen. They were right. He wanted his name in a history book.

The first think Iran will do, should they be attacked, is shut down the Strait of Hormuz - likely take them about half an hour.

Things would get very 'interesting' at that point.

I wonder which Russia will help out, China or US??!!

If the US attacks Iran, I think it will be pretty much game over for humanity.
