U.S. Accuses Iran Of Developing Missiles Capable Of Reaching European Capitals

Donate

On November 29, U.S. Special Representative for Iran, Brian Hook, said that Iran boosted its ballistic missile program in the last few years and tested a new missile that’s capable of reaching some European capitals in January of 2017.

“The regime’s pace of missile launches did not diminish after implementation of the Iran nuclear deal in January of 2016. Iran has conducted numerous ballistic missile launches and space launches since this time as it continues to prioritize missile development as a tool of revolution,” Hook said during a press conference.

The new missile, which Hook referred to, is Khorramshahr that has a range between 1,000 and 2,000 km. While Hook attempted to promote what he said as new information, Iran officially presented Khorramshahr missile to the public and announced its test a year ago.

Hook went on to claim that Iran is “the largest ballistic missile force” in the Middle East. According to the U.S. diplomat claims, the Islamic republic has more than 10 ballistic missile systems either in its inventory or under development currently.

“Any environment where Iran is able to operate freely can become a forward-deployed missile base for such systems and for many other kinds of weapons that you see here today. This threatens Israel and other partners, especially Saudi Arabia and the UAE,” Hood added.

Hook’s claims are likely an attempt by Washington to pressure its allies in the European Union, who refused to follow its footsteps and pull out of the nuclear deal with Iran. Earlier this month, the U.S. made a similar attempt and accused Iran of “hiding chemical weapons” without providing any evidence.

  • Which capitals, Bucharest or Athens on a good day? It should be obvious that Iran isn’t targeting Europe.
    Iran is building a force to retaliate against Israel, the Saudis, and U.S. forces so that they don’t become another Yemen.

    • Jens Holm

      Iran has done that threats many times. So far the distance of at least one missile can hit Israel but so far is very inaccurate, so it might hit the Westbank or even Gaza.

      So the “lowfacts” are, they do improve. True, its no important news.

        So far very inaccurate eh? How about the missile strikes on”isis” in late september, they were so inaccurate they hit isis instead of us forces…whoops sorry lads we missed.

      In Ukraine,
      Israel and US/NATO/ are Warmongers too…

      http://www.voltairenet.org/article204171.html

      Confirmation of our version of the incident at Kertch

      Russia has made public three interrogations of Ukrainian marines taken prisoner during the Kertch incident on 25 November 2018 and a document (photo) seized on board one of the ships.

      According to this document and these videos, the incident had been planned by Ukraine collaborating with foreign powers. Two officers from Ukraine’s military intelligence service were on board the ships to coordinate operations. They were the ones that forbade the marines from responding to messages from the Russians when the war ships entered Russian territorial waters, waters that Ukraine was claiming to belong to it.

      Our collaborator Valentin Vasilescu thinks that prior to the incident, some US and Israeli electromagnetic reconnaissance planes flew over the area to detect Russian defences [1].

      While Israel is still not a member of Nato, it does have a bureau of liaison within Nato headquarters in Brussels. During the coup d’etat in Kiev, in the context of Nato’s stay behind secret service, thirty Israeli officers and thirty one Israeli soldiers participated in the fighting that broke out in Maidan Square… yet they were fighting on the side of the former Nazi party Svoboda.

      The operation at Kertch seems to have been sponsored by Nato. Any why? To create a “Russian threat” which would serve to justify Ukraine becoming a member of the Alliance. This operation was supervised by Ambassador Kurt Volker. The CIA recruited him when he was still a student at Georgetown University. After working at the Agency’s headquarters in Langley, he entered the diplomatic service and became “adviser” to Richard Hoolbroke during the wars in Yugoslavia. He became Victoria Nuland’s assistant when she was the ambassador to Nato and following her departure, stepped into this post. Today he is the ambassador to Kiev.

            It is a serious question Nod.

          • Nod

            patriotism is a mental disorder.

            It is based in belief. Belief in a construct that doesn’t really exist. ( what exactly does America or Canada mean, except both are owned with debt by the same dudes. Driven like the rest of the planet, by cyclical planet destroying consumerism and pandering to greed and envy. It is a false canard. ) Belief in ideals that do not really exist. Belief in politics that do not really exist. Belief in fellowship that certainly does not exist, fellowship cannot exist with inequality.

            “Patriotism is in political life what faith is in religion.
            Lord Acton, “Nationality”, The Home and Foreign Review (July 1862).
            ================

            “All of this points to the need to recognize that “instilling patriotism” is a political euphemism for manipulating public opinion, solidifying the authority of those in charge, and creating an environment that nurtures militarism and maximizes corporate profits, with little consideration of the resulting harm and destruction. “

          • FlorianGeyer

            I do think that there is a fundamental need for animals and human animals to ‘belong’.

            The problem comes when ‘belonging’ is hijacked by the ‘strongest’ who have venal intent.
            The ‘problem’ will never be solved and will always ebb and flow.

            Did you know that there are royal families in the Arab Gulf that are worth trillions? But what real power do they have? Same for the House fo Al Saud. Easily put Jeff Bezos to shame. What power do they exert on world affairs ?

            Look, the global financial monetary scheme was built, nursed and cultivated by Jews for hundreds of years now. It is a very unfair, unjust, cold hearted, mean spirited system, which has, and will continue to bring about human suffering on grand scales and war.

            The Jew (Dollar/Petro Dollar) is a scam, and the worlds Central Banks buy it up by threat of sanctions, coups and threats of military action if they don’t. Wall Street is a shell-game rigged by Jewish bankers and elites in the U.S.A.

            Some Jewish wealthy families bought the Dollar in 1913, from a naïve president, and the Warburgs, Schiffs and co. have run the policies of the U.S. since. They have sought their Talmudic dream of world hegemony, belligerence and control using the Dollar.

            Look at at it. The U.S. has engaged in 54 military conflicts since the end of WW2 alone. And the U.S. continues to warmonger. The western Jewish run and owned press are attacking Russia and China, who threaten to usurp the Jewish world monetary scheme.

Iran would shoot itself in the foot and lose all goodwill amongst their populations if it was to bomb them in any case short of them declaring war first.

    • Hisham Saber

      The Khorramshahr Ballistic Missiles have very sophisticated Chinese supplied precision guidance systems. Anything within a 2000 Km range of these missiles can be bombarded, specifically , Israel.

      Iran could produce dual stage, or three stage ballistic missiles that have even farther range, but Ayatollah Khamenei has placed the limit at 2000 Km. This can be changed at anytime, just like Iran’s Fatwa/Religious edict against nuclear weapons. Fatwa’s can be annulled, reversed or overturned.

      The Israeli’s and U.S. officials know this.

    Actually, I think that Iran has Israeli and Arab capitals in mind…

      Gulf Arab capitals. Precisely Saudi Arabia’s and the UAE capitals, maybe Bahrain too. The other 19 Arab capitals Iran is not interested in. However, Tel Aviv and Haifa, both in Israel, are slated for total destruction in the case of attck on Iran.

    Of course. All they had to do was get the missiles that Saddam had back in 2001. If I recall, a British Prime Minister said that they could deliver a nuclear bomb to London in 45 minutes. Right, Tony? (snark)

    This, you may recall, was part of the western propaganda wave that preceded the invasion of Iraq a couple decades ago. What is amazing is that they haven’t come up with new threats to circulate. Maybe Iran, using radiation, has developed flying lizards that can fly below radar and drop bombs on European capitals. I’m sure we could bring in Colin Powell for a briefing about how aluminum tubes are easily carried by flying lizards. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6ab9b485ffa621b350fd3641a9581e2ecc8b6ef06c73b3715773633bd7b17bb2.jpg

    From 1945 until today – 20 to 30 million people killed by the USA

    by Manlio Dinucci

    It’s a fact, not an analysis, not even an opinion – the « free and open international order» promoted since 1945 by the United States has cost the lives of 20 to 30 million people throughout the world. No President, whoever he may be, has managed to slow the rhythm of this killing machine.

    In the summary of its last strategic document – 2018 National Defense Strategy of the United States of America (of which the entire text is classified) – the Pentagon claims that « after the Second World War, the United States and their allies installed a « free and open international order in order to safeguard the freedom of the people from aggression and coercion », but that « this order is presently undermined by Russia and China, who are violating the principles and rules of international relations ». This is a total reversal of historical reality.

    Professor Michel Chossudovsky, director of the Center for Research on Globalization, reminds us that these two countries, listed today as enemies, are those which, when they were allied with the United States during the Second World War, paid the victory over the Nazi-fascist Axis Berlin-Rome-Tokyo with the greatest price in human lives – approximately 26 million from the Soviet Union and 20 million from China, compared with a little more than 400,000 from the United States.

    With this preliminary, Chossudovsky introduces to Global Research a documented study by James A. Lucas on the number of people killed by the uninterrupted series of wars, coups d’État and other subversive operations executed by the United States from the end of the War in 1945 until now – a number estimated at 20 to 30 million victims [1]. Approximately twice the number of deaths from the First World War, the centenary of the end of which has just been celebrated in Paris with a Peace Forum.

    Apart from the deaths, there are the wounded, who very often find themselves crippled for life – some experts calculate that for every person killed in war, ten others are wounded. This means that the number of people wounded by US wars should be counted in the hundreds of millions.

    To this estimation in the study we must add a non-quantified number of dead, probably hundreds of millions, which have been caused, from 1945 until today, by the indirect effects of wars – famine, epidemics, forced migrations, slavery and exploitation, environmental damage, subtraction of resources from vital needs in order to cover military expenditure.

    The study documents the wars and coups d’État executed by the United States in 30 Asian, African, European and Latin-American countries. It reveals that US military forces are directly responsible for between 10 and 15 million deaths, caused by the major wars – those against Korea and Vietnam and the two wars against Iraq. Between 10 and 14 million other deaths have been caused by the proxy wars waged by the allied armed forces trained and commanded by the USA in Afghanistan, Angola, Congo, Sudan, Guatemala and other countries.

    The Vietnam War, which spread to Cambodia and Laos, caused a number of deaths estimated at 7.8 million (plus a huge number of wounded, and genetic damage affecting generations due to the dioxin sprayed by US aircraft).

    The proxy war of the 1980’s in Afghanistan was organised by the CIA, which trained and armed – with the collaboration of Oussama ben Laden and Pakistan – more than 100,000 mujahideen to fight the Soviet troops who had fallen into the « Afghan trap » (as it was later described by Zbigniew Brzezinski, specifying that the training of the mujahideen had begun in July 1979, five months before the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan).

    The bloodiest coup d’État was organised in 1965 in Indonesia by the CIA – it handed over the list of the first 5,000 Communists and others marked for death to the Indonesian murder squads. The number of people assassinated is estimated at between 500,000 and 3 million.

    That is the « free and open international order » that the United States, independently of the White House, persist in pursuing in order to « safeguard the people from aggression and coercion ».
