Iran Threatens U.S. Air Bases With Ballistic Missiles

While liberals and moderate Republicans have chosen to go after President Trump over the Russian collusion charade let by Robert Mueller, our enemies are watching and taking advantage of the situation.

Iran is not happy that President Trump is speaking about pulling out of the Obama-brokered nuclear deal, and possibly adding sanctions to that country. So the country’s leaders are starting to talk tough.

In an effort to show what they can do with their missile capabilities, a top Iranian military commander threatened to launch ballistic missile attacks on U.S. forces in the region. Via the Free Beacon: “The head of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, announced on Tuesday that Iranian missiles can already ‘cover all U.S. bases in the region’ and that Tehran has the capability to increase its missile power even further.”

Here’s more from the report: “’Based on the policies specified by the Leader [Ayatollah Khamenei], the range of our missiles is limited to 2,000km, but we have the capability to increase the range,’ IRGC Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said following an announcement by the country’s supreme leader that Iranian ballistic missile technology would be capped at this distance for the short term.”

One thing we have learned throughout history is that we can’t negotiate with madmen. Neville Chamberlain tried. The Japanese saw how graciously accommodating the western democracies were and decided to get what they considered was rightfully theirs as well.

The Left will always try feeding the crocodile in the hopes the croc will eat them last.

At least Republicans, and even many Democrats, are fighting back against Iran’s threats.

On a larger scale, have you noticed that this administration does not brag or announce its military plans? Trump may allude to what may happen, but he doesn’t brag about it. Unlike W. and Obama, Trump and his crew keep their military operations close to the chest. Sure, they mention them, but no one is on television claiming that this action or that action will happen. These people know how to execute an offensive.

What do you think about Iran boasting about what they can do? Will this be addressed by the Trump Administration’s elite team? SHARE this story on your Facebook/Twitter timeline and add your comments below.
