The lies are coming fast and furious. This guy says the medium range ballistic missile (MRBM) Iran tested is “capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and traveling 4,000 km”. But then again he also says “the ayatollah regime” continues to fan the “flames and calling outright for the destruction of the Jewish state.” … so that should give you an idea of the truthfulness of his “fake news” website.
The Khorramshahr MRBM is one of three new missiles Iran has developed. Like most of these types of weapons, it probably has a range of 2,500 km max. A MRBM can ONLY have a range of 3,500 km before it becomes something else (intercontinental ballistic missile perhaps?) So, it can’t have a range of 4,000 km.
It’s also not designed to carry nuclear warheads and even the White House and Defense Department acknowledge that fact. But Hasbara will be Hasbara so you can’t really expect anything else from these guys, can you?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately went into hyperventilation mode after the test, screeching to the world that action must be taken to stop Iran from developing defensive weapons… weapons designed to defend their country from out of control people like… crazy, ranting racist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Benjamin Netanyahu’s condemnation of the Iranian missile test is clearly intended to push the new Trump administration to take action against Tehran.
Iran will be high on the agenda when the two men meet in mid-February, though it is as much Iran’s regional activities as its missile programme that worries the Israelis.” BBC
Even propagandists working for the MSM here in the states admit, this is NOT a violation of the P5+1 agreement Iran signed in 2015 (medium range ballistic missile tests are not part of that deal) and most also admit it “probably” isn’t a violation of UNSC resolution 2231.
“Iran, “unlike other major world powers, has not defined its power based on [the possession of] weapons of mass destruction (WMD), including atomic, chemical and biological ones,” the Iranian legislators said.
The sole way to ward off any act of aggression against Iran is to boost the country’s missile might, the MPs added, describing certain countries’ opposition to Iran’s defense might as “illogical.” Press TV
Keep in mind, Iran backs folks in the Middle East that we are trying to get rid of like Assad (the legitimate government of Syria) and the Houthis (the legitimate government in Yemen) so there is considerable effort being exerted on Iran to stop helping thwart the creation of the New Middle East. Also of note, they are a democracy whereas ALL of our “friends” in that part of the world are dictatorships.
Taking their marching orders straight from Crazy Bibi, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Mike Flynn, flipped out in response to the test.
“The new US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has warned Iran that its recent ballistic missile test was “absolutely unacceptable.”
At an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Haley said, “The United States is not naive. We are not going to stand by. You will see us call them out.” AJ news
“Gen. Michael Flynn (ret) told reporters Wednesday that the Trump administration “condemns such actions by Iran that undermine security, prosperity and stability throughout and beyond the Middle East that puts American lives at risk.”
“Iran continues to threaten U.S. friends and allies in the region,” Flynn said, adding that the U.S. is putting Iran on notice because “Iran is now feeling emboldened,” and the Obama administration failed “to respond adequately” to Iran’s actions.” CBS ‘news’
Iran is feeling “emboldened” because the rest of the world is getting sick of the U.S.’s and Israel’s constant warmongering about Iran.
Republicans and Trump alike condemn the July 2015 P5+1 agreement because it starts to normalize international relations with Iran in spite of the best propaganda Israel could produce at the time. They claim Obama went “soft on Iran” when he signed it, but in all honesty, the Obama administration had no choice because the other 5 major nations were going to go through with it with or without the U.S. and the lifting of certain sanctions presented a huge business opportunity for American businesses that would not be able to take advantage of the moment if the then president didn’t sign onto the deal.
For the record, that is the exact same reason Trump hasn’t used his executive order power to back out of the deal.
Iran has a right to develop defensive weapons and Trump and Flynn and his new UN ambassador know that all too well. They are in violation of nothing.
Of course, that wont stop MSM outlets across the fake political divide from doing Israel’s bidding right along with Trump’s new administration officials. Same can be said for the fake “alternative” outlets like Breitbart, Zero Hedge and Prison Planet.
Here is an example of the Hasbara Hate you can find at Zero Hedge for example:
Makes you kinda wonder where they get their funding, now doesn’t it?
This test will go down in history, I hope, as much ado about nothing. Bibi will come to Washington with his Roadrunner Charts of Doom and Trump’s people, the fake-left and all the ReTHUGlicans will bow and scrape and placate his raving, racist rants while dutifully putting out their hands for more “campaign contributions”
Breitbart, Zero Hedge and Di$info Jone$ will forward links to their articles on “da ebil MoooOoooslims” to their Hasbara handlers with the same hand gestures at the ready. I hear they all accept dollars and shekels.
In the end, this will be a nothing story accept for the fact that it reflects a “more of the same” mentality from this new administration. They all take orders from overseas at least in terms of public relations.
Please help keep AE up and running if you can.
I really could use any help you can afford. Things are getting pretty bad
Thank you all so much
