If something happens, the blood is on Obama’s hands.
As Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama spent the last several months assuring Americans that everything was OK in the Middle East — specifically with Iran after the rogue country received the sweet end of a lucrative nuclear deal — Iranian military commanders were working on their own project.
Continuing on their course of violating international bans, a senior Iranian military commander announced over the weekend that all U.S. bases and assets in the Middle East were now within the range of Iranian ballistic missiles.
“Some of the threats by the U.S. are aimed at appeasing the Zionists, while others are for the purpose of domestic consumption (in the U.S.), but what is important is that they are aware of and acknowledge our capabilities and deterrence power,” said Iranian Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh as he dismissed American military threats.
“We do not feel any need to increase the range of our missiles and (our perceived enemy) targets are fully within the range of our missiles,” Hajizadeh continued, according to Iran’s Fars News Agency.
His announcement came at the same time the Islamic Republic announced a new high-tech torpedo in their growing arsenal — one capable of striking targets in the water or on land.
Iran, Russia, Syria, and Iraq have joined forces and their latest threats against U.S. military bases aren’t exactly subtle with that kind of language and action.
“The U.S. is obedient and passive in the Persian Gulf and we impose our sovereignty right in the Persian Gulf very powerfully,” said Rear Adm. Ali Fadavi, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Navy.
This kind of talk has the rumblings of war behind it and we need a leader who will stand up and take the lead in protecting our nation.
