Pompeo: Iran tested a medium-range ballistic missile with multiple warheads

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday condemned what he described as Iran’s testing of a medium-range ballistic missile capable of carrying multiple warheads.  He said this was a violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed of the 2015 international nuclear agreement. Pompeo warned in a statement released on Twitter that Iran is increasing its “testing and proliferation” of missiles and called on the Islamic Republic to “cease these activities.” He said the new missile could strike “anywhere in the Middle East and even parts of Europe.” DEBKAfile adds:  Israel is known to be within range of Iran’s medium range ballistic missiles. The Secretary offered no specifics on the newly-tested Iranian missile, when the test was conducted and whether it was a success.

    This is especially hypocritical after Israel’s launch of ballistic missiles into Syria in an attempt to undermine the Syrian government and its allies efforts to rid the country of the head chopping crazies that the US and Israel have been actively protecting and supporting.

    The Motto of the State of Israel Should Be ‘Living on Killing

    After all its no fair if those that Israel and the West attack acquire any weapons that mean that they can really strike back at those who are attacking them…

    Israel after all has shown in the Second Lebanon War of 2006 what happens when its forces which only excel at tormenting and attacking the defenseless encounter someone with somewhat modern weapons and the will to defend them selves.

    That been a Israeli asskicking at the hands of the very much smaller forces of Hezbollah lol

      Tommy, President Trump told Putin to let Israel attack Iranian assets in Syria.

      Putin smiled and bowed to President Trump and followed Trumps command.

      Tommy: We are the good guys and so if you consider America and Israel to be hypocritically defending our people, then so be it – better to have the West survive than put ourselves in jeopardy at the hands of fascist leftists and Islamists (which I would guess you are a proud member of one or the other).

    You’re playing like kids. But two great civilizations (Iran & Israel) that can give a lot
    in terms of technology, arts, architecture, music, risk to be utterly destroyed.
    The war in Syria is finished, what’s the point in continuing the bombings?
    What’s the point in menacing Israel with missiles from Syria and Lebanon?
    Here we are at risk of the TRUE USE of NUCLEAR WEAPONS.
    And with three nukes Israel will be destroyed. But with 60 nukes against
    Iran, there will be a nuclear winter that will damage all northern hemisphere.
    will unchain tons of URANIUM FLUORIDE that will travel all around northern
    hemisphere, causing cancers to women and children, malformations, etc.
    Are You all proud of this? In CROP CIRCLES appeared something that looks
    like URANIUM FLUORIDE as seen from several perspectives!
    Really an enormous lack of understanding about what is a stake.

    Why do we always hear of these launches after they are completed? Why not monitor and shoot them down during the tests?
