Default Iran tests another mid-range ballistic missile in breach of UN resolutions

Oh, look, the country Obama trusts to inspect themselves is already breaking UN resolutions.

Obama needs the word "SUCKER" tattooed on his forehead.

Iran tests another mid-range ballistic missile in breach of UN resolutions | Fox News

EXCLUSIVE: Iran has carried out a new medium range ballistic missile test in breach of two United Nations Security Council resolutions, a senior U.S. official told Fox News on Monday.

Western intelligence says the test was held Nov. 21 near Chabahar, a port city in southeast Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan Province near the border with Pakistan. The launch took place from a known missile test site along the Gulf of Oman.

The missile, known as a Ghadr-110, has a range of 1,800 – 2000 km, or 1200 miles, and is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. The missile fired in November is an improved version of the Shahab 3, and is similar to the precision guided missile tested by Iran on Oct. 10, which elicited strong condemnation from members of the U.N. Security Council.

“The United States is deeply concerned about Iran's recent ballistic missile launch," Samantha Power, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., said in a statement after the last Iranian ballistic missile test in October.

President Obama mentioned the Iranian missile test during a press conference on Oct. 16 and said the United States was preparing to brief the U.N. sanctions committee. He added that it would not derail the nuclear deal.

"I think what we'll be doing is we'll review, as we have in the past, any violations of U.N. resolutions, and we'll deal with them much as we have in the past," Obama said of the October incident.

A senior administration official told Fox News on Monday the White House
was "aware" of reports of the missile test, but had "no further comment
at this time."

Iran appears to be in a race against the clock to improve the accuracy of its ballistic missile arsenal in the wake of the nuclear agreement signed in July.

One day after Tehran and six world powers signed that nuclear accord, the UN passed resolution 2231, which compels Iran to refrain from any work on ballistic missiles for 8 years. UN Security Council Resolution 1929 was passed in 2010 and bans Iran from conducting ballistic missile tests.

The Security Council is still debating how to respond to Iran's last test in October.

Anyone else get the impression that under Obama, we're the aspiring actress who just polished off a mixed drink, and foreign countries are a composite of Bill Cosby, who's standing behind us with his hands on our shoulders whispering in our ear, "Now now, it'll be ok" as our eyes start to sag from drowsiness?

UPDATE:

Saudis, Iran `bout to get into it...

Saudis intercept ballistic missile intended for airport
Nov. 4, 2017 -- Saudi Arabia intercepted a missile Saturday over northeast Riyadh that Yemen's air force said was intended for the capital's airport.
Quote:
Yemen's rebel-controlled Defense Ministry said in a statement the operation using a Yemeni-made, long-range ballistic missile called the Burqan 2H was successful because the attack "shook the Saudi capital." The Scud-type missile has a range of around 500 miles, a spokesman told Al Jazeera.

Smoke could be seen in images rising from an area near Riyadh's King Khalid International Airport. "We previously warned that capitals of countries attacking Yemen will not be safe from our ballistic missiles," Mohammed Abdul Salam, spokesman for the Iran-backed Houthi rebels, said. "Today's missile attack comes in response to Saudi killing innocent Yemeni civilians." On Wednesday, at least 26 civilians died and dozens were injured in an airstrike in northwestern Yemen that Houthi rebels said was carried out by a Saudi-led coalition.


King Khalid International Airport in Riyadh, which includes a mosque, was the target of a Scud-type missile, Yemen's rebel-controlled air force said, but Saudi Arabia intercepted the missile in an uninhabited area.

Saudi Col. Turki al-Maliki said at 20:07 p.m. a ballistic missile was fired from Yemeni territory toward the kingdom but Saudi forces used a surface-to-air Patriot missile to destroy the missile in an uninhabited area east of the airport, according to the official Saudi news agency, SPA. In 2014, Houthi rebels seized control of the capital Sanaa and began pushing south toward the country's third-biggest city, Aden.

One year later, Saudi Arabia and a coalition of Sunni Arab states launched a massive air campaign aimed at reinstalling President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi's government. More than 10,000 people have died and at least 40,000 wounded, mostly from Saudi-led air strikes. "The Saudis started the war. Our response will continue and increase, whether it's targeting deep inside Saudi Arabia, targeting military positions where Saudi jets fly from or military bases inside Yemeni territory," Abdul Salam said to Al Jazeera earlier this month.

Saudi Arabia: Houthi militia's attempted attack 'an act of war' by Iran
Nov. 6, 2017 -- Saudi Arabia is calling an intercepted missile attack aimed at Riyadh from the Houthi militia an act of aggression by Iran.
Quote:
The Sunni-majority country is blaming the Iranian-backed Houthi for the attack, while Iran is denying ever arming the militia group with weapons. "We have no possibility to transfer missiles to Yemen," Ali Jafari, Iran's Revolutionary Guard Commander General Mohammad, said. "These are their own missiles with improved range."

Saudi Arabia, however, claims that the missile launch could amount to an act of war and that the country has a right to defend itself against Iran and the Houthi militia. "Saudi Arabia also has a right to respond to Iran at the appropriate time and manner, supported by international law and in accordance with its inherent right to defend its territory, its people and its interests protected by all international conventions," a statement from the Saudi-backed Arab Coalition said.

Saudi Arabia has continued to blame Iran for arming Houthi rebels with ballistic missiles, launchers, explosive-laden drones and sea mines. Iran has noted that Saudi Arabia's allegations are "destructive, irresponsible, provocative and baseless" and said that Yemen rebels showed an "independent" reaction to Saudi attacks. The proxy war has gone on since 2014 when the Houthi militia took control of the capital Sanaa and began to seize more power in Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched a force against the group and essentially against Iran by forming its own massive air campaign. Mostly Saudi-led airstrikes have led to more than 10,000 dead and 40,000 wounded. "Today's missile attack comes in response to Saudi killing innocent Yemeni civilians," Mohammad Abdul Salam, a spokesman for the Houthi said of the missile launch.

Saudi-led forces close air, sea and land access to Yemen
November 6, 2017 - The Saudi-led military coalition fighting against the Houthi movement in Yemen said on Monday it would close all air, land and sea ports to the Arabian Peninsula country to stem the flow of arms to the Houthis from Iran.
Quote:
The move, which follows the interception of a missile fired toward the Saudi capital Riyadh on Saturday, is likely to worsen a humanitarian crisis in Yemen that according to the United Nations has pushed some seven million people to the brink of famine and left nearly 900,000 infected with cholera. “The Coalition Forces Command decided to temporarily close all Yemeni air, sea and land ports,” the coalition said in a statement on the Saudi state news agency SPA. It said aid workers and humanitarian supplies would continue to be able to access and exit Yemen. The United Nations, however, said it was not given approval for two scheduled humanitarian flights on Monday and was seeking clarification on the coalition’s announcement.

The state news agency Saba, run by the Houthis, quoted a source in the navy warning against the closure of ports and said it would have, “catastrophic consequences”. The United Nations and international aid organizations have repeatedly criticized the coalition for blocking aid access, especially to north Yemen, which is held by the Iran-aligned Houthi movement battling the Saudi-led coalition. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies have made clear they view Iran as mainly responsible for the Yemen conflict, in which more than 10,000 people have been killed in the past two years.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on his Twitter account on Monday that Riyadh reserved the right to respond to what he called Iran’s “hostile actions”. Bahraini Foreign Minister Sheikh Khaled bin Ahmed al-Khalifa also tweeted that Iran was the real danger to the region. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Saudi Arabia was blaming Tehran for the consequences of its own “wars of aggression”. On Sunday the coalition accused the Houthis of “dangerous escalation (that) came because of Iranian support” after Saudi air defences intercepted the ballistic missile heading toward Riyadh. It was brought down near Riyadh airport without causing casualties.

“WAR CRIMES”

Iran rejected the criticism as “destructive and provocative”. Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi “referred to the war crimes and aggression of the Saudis during the past years and said the reaction by Yemenis is an independent reaction ... and not a move caused by another country’s action or incitement”, a ministry statement said.
