As reported by Breitbart, Iran has vowed to ignore U.S. sanctions against building their ballistic missile program. Their defense minister promised that Iran would be revealing new domestically designed and created weapons systems in the immediate future.
On Monday the Defense minister stated [Any] attempt to impose new sanctions [against Iran] under irrelevant pretexts is indicative of the continued US hostile policy and acrimony toward the Iranian nation, and a futile effort to undermine Irans defense might.”
Last Sunday the U.S. announced it had granted Iran $1.7 billion dollars, repaying the Ayatollah’s theocracy a $400 million debt plus $1.3 billion in interest.
Secretary of State John Kerry called the payment a “fair settlement”, and President Obama agreed saying, “the settlement could save us billions of dollars that could have been pursued in court.
Convenient timing. The day after the Obama administration announces that we are filling the Iranian coffers, Iran announces that they will be continuing building ballistic missiles.
On top of the first $1.7 billion dollars we gave them, they are expected to receive tens of billions of dollars unfrozen when Obama passed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise know as the Iran nuclear deal.
Even more ridiculous is the fact that the U.S. treasurey department itself acknowledges that Iran is supporting terrorism and acting as a destabilizing force in the region.
Adam Szubin, acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, released a statement which said,
We have consistently made clear that the United States will vigorously press sanctions against Iranian activities outside of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action including those related to Irans support for terrorism, regional destabilization, human rights abuses, and ballistic missile program.
We can only hope that the Iranian scientists aren’t as good as all the talk. The middle east is already a dangerous place without Iran possessing Nuclear missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload.
