US in first display of Iranian weapons illegally exported to Yemen insurgents

An array of Iranian weapons collected from the Yemen battlefield was exhibited for the first time at a US base outside Washington as “concrete proof” of Iran’s violation of UN resolutions. Among the objects displayed in a hangar at Joint Base Anacosta-Bolling were charred remains of the Iranian-made short-range Qaim ballistic missile fired from Yemen on Nov. 4 at the international airport outside the Saudi capital of Riyadh. It landed in a remote suburb. Tehran denied supplying the Houthis with such weapons and described the arms exhibition as “fabricated.”

There were also three intact Iranian weapons systems and debris from a fourth. They included anti-tank weapons, as well as a drone-like navigation system for an explosives-packed speed boat used by the Houthi insurgents to attack a Saudi warship on June 30 on the Red Sea. The vessel is programmed in advance to seek out and strike the targeted ship without intervention from the shore. The Toophan anti-tank guided missile, like other items on display, is used by no army other than Iran and now the Houthis. Some of the fragments bore the markings of Iran’s arms industry.

Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN told a news conference at the hangar: “These are Iranian made, these are Iranian sent, and these were Iranian given.” Under the UN Security Council resolutions confirming Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with six world powers, Tehran is prohibited from proliferating its weaponry to other nations without prior Security Council permission. A separate resolution specifically bans supplying arms to Abdul-Malik al-Houthi, who founded Yemen’s rebel movement.
All of the recovered weapons were provided to the United States by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the Pentagon said. The unprecedented presentation – which Haley said involved intelligence that had to be declassified – is part of President Donald Trump’s new Iran policy, which promises a harder line toward Tehran. That would appear to include a new diplomatic initiative. Laura Seal, a Defense Department spokesperson added: The new strategy addresses the totality of Iranian threats and malign activities: nuclear; ballistic missile development and proliferation; counter-maritime operations; cyber; and support to terrorism and unconventional warfare. The equipment in the hangar, she said, is presented so that US allies and organizations like the UN “can be clear-eyed about Iran’s activities.”

    Very impressed by this lady, it seems she is very brave in the UN. Talking about the tough issues, and calling a spade a spade. That is very rare in this world today, I definitely feel she has the makings of a future presidential candidate, and excellent role model for women.

            Apartheid Israel got slaughtered in 1973 until Uncle Sam came in with welfare checks and threats.

            In the 80s, Sharon’s little settler colony slaughtered Lebanese children for a while and eventually got thrown out by a barely known militia. When the Land Grabbers tried to steal Lebanon to the Litani… we all KNOW how that went, don’t we?

            The antisemitic land grabbers haven’t won anything in more than three decades. Except for Biggest Human Rights Violator awards. And rape convictions for sitting presidents.

        Don’t be a silly boy, in here it is about the promise the liar ayatollah has signed off for not proliferating its weaponry to other nations without prior Security Council permission. But he’s now proved the king of the liars.
        Nikki was great, with ellegant diplomatic precision, and with facts at hand (quotes from the accord and UN resolutions) made the poor blody moronic liar ayatollah the laughing stock of the World.
        We shall see some now stiff retribution.
        I wonder what is thruth in all the liar ayatollah says, including his points on religion.

    • Dec 15, 2017 @ 20:57 at 20:57

      I hope she is the next POTUS. Not only brave, but sharp, disciplined, and with a clear set of morals standards and grasp of reality…at least so far as we can see now. I hope there are not some hidden flaws, not yet revealed.

      I cannot wait for her to be attacked as anti-immigrant and anti-women; but it will happen, even though her parents are from India.

        1919, Balfour to Curzon‘The weak point of our position is of course that in the case of Palestine we deliberately and rightly decline to accept the principle of self-determination.’
        1919 Curzon, to Balfour warns: Weizmann contemplates a Jewish state, a Jewish nation, a subordinate population of Arabs, [and that Weizmann was]…trying to effect this behind the screen and under the shelter of British trusteeship. Ingram p58
        1919 Balfour to Curzon ‘in Palestine we do not propose even to go through the form of consulting the wishes of the present inhabitants of the country….The Four Great Powers are committed to Zionism. And Zionism, be it right or wrong, good or bad, is rooted in age-long traditions, in present needs, in future hopes, of far profounder import than the desires and prejudices of the 700,000 Arabs who now inhabit that ancient land………. In short, so far as Palestine is concerned, the Powers have made no statement of fact which is not admittedly wrong, and no declaration of policy which, at least in the letter, they have not always intended to violate. Ingram p73

        • Dec 15, 2017 @ 15:06 at 15:06

          The Arab-Islamic states have about 23 countries – most of their boundaries changed in 20th century due to the same colonization by European powers that took place in Israel at the same time.

          Jordan was stripped away (stolen in fact) from the Mandate and given to Arab royalty by the British as a reward.

          Most of the Arabs of the region considered themselves residents of Syria, Iraq and Egypt among many other countries. Why did these countries not offer their Arab residents a home instead of making them into their terror proxies (just as they do today with Hezbollah, Hamas and the PA)?

          Islam does not allow Jewish or anyone else to live as free people with them, inside their countries, or as neighbors. You have to be a dhimmi or you will be killed. It is a barbaric ideology worse than Communism or Fascism and more effective because they have a long-term view to our demise and their conquest and ascendancy.

          • Dec 15, 2017 @ 20:11 at 20:11

            And where was Israel border? The Jews were living there for centuries in HARMONY before came zionist thugs from most eastern europe. Back to borderline, where is Israels legal border? didn’t have? why ? btw Sinai is still connected religiously, why it was given back to Egypt? affraid? LOL

          • Dec 16, 2017 @ 1:22 at 1:22

            The world is populated by peoples, not states. The leaders of the Arab people, in volunteering their assistance to the allies, in the Zionist colonial war for global hegemony, number one, were promised a great Arab state uniting the tribes. Citing the crimes of the Zionist colonial project as justification for the covert illegal colonisation of Syrian Palestine seems weak. Complaining about the ‘theft’ of Jordan might be a little rich. Palestine was a province under the administration of the Ottomans, and as such was a multicultural society with a fluid population.

            Because separatist communities bring little charity to their host nations, and understandably so, it is sound practice to level a special tax because we will always have our own idiots to feed.

        Ancient Israel was once much many times larger than today’s State of Israel. Modern day Israel is based on the British Mandate stripped of Jordan but it includes Judea-Samaria which the Israelis rescued from the Jordanians in ’67 – Jordan ruined about 12 synagogues and used snipers in Jerusalem to kill and terrorize Jews; they set gangs on Jews to kill them in pogroms and terrorism long before 1948. they would not live in peace – peace is a word they only use when UN or EU officials are within earshot. Apartheid is a Islamic thing and there is no way that anyone wants to live side-by-side with people who have no experience with democracy, tolerance, non-violence, acceptance of religions (Judaism) other than violent islam.

Remember the failed rescue attempt? He was so ineffective in dealing with Iran that Americans thought he couldn’t even count to 21 with his pants down.

      It wasn’t until “Bedtime for Bonzo” President Ronald Reagan, who everyone had laughed at during the campaign, was inaugurated that the Chief Ayatollah Assahollah released all American hostages because they were scared obamaless that Reagan would turn Tehran into a glass skating rink if they didn’t.

    I really don’t understand how the Clean Break Drive against Iran can stay in it’s lane now that Netanyahu is being indicted next week (as being reported) for Israeli felonies, apparently, while across the pond the Netanyahu-Kushner encryption/conspiracy over UN 2334 is central to Mueller’s Charges/Trump impeachment

    Conspiracy against the US and all the Israeli charges AT THE SAME TIME? Then the Jerusalem disaster – possibly to coverup Putin’s Sting on him, and bring everything down with him

    As must be obvious to an elementary chessplayer, Putin Stung the Clean Break Drive against Iran has been classically ‘Paul Newman-busted’ – the Trump/Netanyahu/Kushner connected cases have no Turning Points or forks, they are fused together or all history

    The reason for Trump’s Impeachment — according to Mueller and the Flynn conviction – is the already leaked (Bolton, Krauthammer) encrypted intercepts/conspiracy between Netanyahu and Kushner – think of it

    It’s Putinchev’s Cobra – the Stung Clean Break Drive on Iran. Then the collapses Israeli-Sunni Nato, after Jerusalem

          Regime change in Syria is the name of the game, and sexual services matter for inspiration. Before going into battle–firing hell-cannons at schools, using chemical weapons, blowing up markets, sniping civilians, etc.–the ISISrael mercenaries hop on the IOF harlots.

          72 ISISrael’s head choppers get to triple-stuff the 24 LandGrabberVirgins on a symmetrical rotation–pooper, vagina, mouth. When those 72 are finished, and the virgins are used up, Avgidor wheels in two dozen more of them, who service 72 more mercenaries.

          It’s quite a logistical operation.

          With Apartheid Israel’s army unable to occupy territory, defeated whenever they go to battle, turning them into sex slaves for real soldiers makes a lot of sense.

    Hey Nikki…
    Is Yemen being added to the ‘7 countries in 5 years’ plan now?

      Fucking losers need to recalculate their timeline.

      Their little project of world conquest lies in ashes, principally because Apartheid Israel’s Comfort Women of the IOF (the virgins) could not adequately satisfy ISISrael’s mercenaries in the Stolen Golan.

    You hate Persians, Arabs, Turks, Russians, Chinese. Is there anyone, besides yourself, that is not hateworthy?

    It is hard now not to feel angry in the last days of the Bush administration and throughout the Obama administration that they enabled Iranian influence among the NE Sheikhs of Iraq and armed them with lethal IEDs and Obama turned his back on Maliki because he put rapprochement with the Iranian Islamist Revolution ahead of genuine peace for the illusion of peace and troop withdrawals.

    A few points:

    1. Haley was totally unable to discuss the chain of custody of the missile body. Where exactly was it found? Wouldn’t there be some photos of the missile lying on the ground in “the remote suburb” of Riyadh? What evidence is there to support any claims about chain of custody?
    2. Related to number one, the Iranians fired a Qian 1 missile (same kind) earlier in the year after the Iranian parliament was attacked. Iran fired a volley of missiles, one of which was a Qian 1, from Kermanshah in western Iran into Deir Ezzor in Eastern Syria. What happened to the body of that missile? Is it accounted for? Could the Saudis have gotten a hold of it and waited for the opportune moment to put it to use?
    3. The range of the Qian 1 that I see quoted is 750 kms. The distance from northern Yemen near the border with Saudi (vicinity Saada) to Riyadh is over 900kms. How do we account for that difference?
