This missile can reach Europe.. (Iran is in Asia) thus is an ICBM.

Thanks For playing..

This testing was a VIOLATION of Obama's Executive Agreement.

Did Iran's Ballistic Missile Test Violate A U.N. Resolution?

February 3, 2017 12:27 PM ET

Peter Kenyon


In the days leading up to today's announcement of additional U.S. sanctions on Iran, the U.S. and Iran have made claims and counter-claims as to whether Iran's ballistic missile test on Sunday violated a U.N. Security Council resolution and the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers, including the U.S.

"Iran is playing with fire," President Trump tweeted Friday morning before the sanctions were announced. Trump's National Security Adviser, Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, earlier said the missile test was "in defiance of" U.N. Security Council Resolution 2231 endorsing the Iran nuclear deal. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer called the test an outright "violation."

Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, meanwhile tweeted that Iran is "unmoved" by U.S. threats and has the right to defend itself.

So did Iran violate the agreement or not?

Most nonproliferation experts would say Iran certainly defied the spirit of the U.N. resolution, but technically didn't violate it — because it contains no prohibition against such testing, as one of its predecessors, passed in 2010, specifically did.

Here's what the two resolutions say on the subject, with highlighting added:

U.N. Security Council Resolution 1929, from 2010, says the Security Council "decides that Iran shall not undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using ballistic missile technology, and that States shall take all necessary measures to prevent the transfer of technology or technical assistance to Iran related to such activities."

In Resolution 2231, passed in 2015, the Security Council endorsed the nuclear deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA. It terminated the provisions of the 2010 resolution and added language deep in one of the annexes saying: "Iran is called upon not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology, until the date eight years after the JCPOA Adoption Day or until the date on which the IAEA submits a report confirming the Broader Conclusion, whichever is earlier."

As diplomatic terms of art, "shall not" — which appeared in the 2010 resolution — represents a clear and enforceable prohibition, whereas being "called upon" not to do something is more ambiguous.

Here's one way to look at it: When Iran tested ballistic missiles in the fall of 2015, while Resolution 1929 was still in effect, it was doubtless in violation of a Security Council stricture. But when it tested its missile on Sunday, under the new Resolution 2231, Iran was essentially ignoring the Security Council's advice — not violating a directive.

...

And, as side notes...

1. Technically speaking, an ICBM is a ballistic missile which can deliver a weapon 5500 km away from its launchpad. And it appears the world has yet to witness an Iranian missile that has successfully been able to travel such a distance.

2. An ballistic missile is not a "NUKE" if it is not specifically designed to carry and deliver a nuclear weapon. And it most certainly cannot be a "NUKE" if the country that possesses such missile does not have any nuclear weapons to arm such a missile to begin with.

Obama gave them a Build a Nuke Card... The evidence is clear THEY HAVE BEEN BUILDING A NUKE BEFORE THE AGREEMENT, AND DURING THE AGREEMENT.

Trump took away that Build a Nuke Card and the US's part in it.
As you know very well indeed, everyone who knows anything about the matter says you are lying. Didn't your Momma teach you not to tell bloody great whoppers, or didn't you have one?

Trump removed the US from the Agreement because Iran is developing ICBMs and succeeded in violation of the agreement.


Iran Broke the Agreement because Obama screwed the pooch again.

If the UK German and France want to stay in the Agreement, that has NOTHING repeat NOTHING to do with the US being apart of the fraud committed by the Iranians.


WAIT. WE HAVE evidence of a violation? WE DO?? WHERE's your LINK? SOURCE? EVIDENCE?

It is well established that Tehran has consistently denied IAEA inspectors access to military sites and other research locations. This is in direct contravention to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and bipartisan legislation set out by Congress, which compels the president to verify that “Iran is transparently, verifiably, and fully implementing the agreement.” Yet, according to the Institute for Science and International Security, as of the last quarterly report released in August, the IAEA had not visited any military site in Iran since implementation day.

In the same file as all the evidence proving Saddam had WMDs.

Perhaps labelling a group based on one or two individuals isn't accurate.
Nope explain the hatred I have shown, remember diasgreeing with my view does not make it hatred. Just because you, and other supporters of devious behavior think it is hatred, does not make it so

Ah, the mark of a good supporter of the Republican President. A firm belief that if you tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth.
