Iran is Testing Trump. It Won’t End Well for Them.

Only a couple of months after President Trump pulled the United States out of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal and only a couple of weeks after his administrations snapped economic sanctions back into place, the Islamic Republic of Iran is back to their old tricks. Having gone more than a year without test-firing any ballistic missiles, Tehran reportedly launched a Fateh-110 short-range missile in a 100-mile trajectory over the Strait of Hormuz. The launch, which is in defiance of international resolutions, can only be seen as a direct challenge to President Trump’s authority and the United States’ willingness to do something about the biggest problem in the Middle East.

Iran may wish they had left this particular rocket unlaunched.

From Fox News, who spoke to U.S. officials confirming the test:

For the first time in more than a year, Iran test-fired a ballistic missile in a brazen display of defiance months after President Trump pulled the United States out of a landmark nuclear deal and days before his administration slapped new sanctions on the Islamic Republic, three U.S. officials with knowledge of the launch tell Fox News.

The test of an Iranian Fateh-110 short-range ballistic missile coincided with a large-scale naval exercise by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard forces late last week involving over 50 small gunboats in the Strait of Hormuz to rehearse “swarm” tactics which could one day potentially shut down the vital waterway, through which 30 percent of the world’s oil passes each year.

While the U.S. military publicly acknowledged the naval activity, the missile test from an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps base in Bandar-e-Jask in southeastern Iran has not been previously reported. The launch was detected by U.S. spy satellites.

This test launch aside, Iran has been remarkably quiet when it comes to playing military footsie with the Trump regime. Even while engaged in negotiations with the gullible and feckless Obama administration, Tehran took delight in seizing U.S. Navy ships, launching ballistic missiles, and engaging in various other conflict-laden mischief just to prove they could get away with it. They have notably toned it down since Donald Trump took office, and you don’t have to wonder why. Trump campaigned against the Iran deal from the moment he launched his bid for the presidency, and while he has been a fierce critic of needless foreign war, the Iranians know damn well he is not a man to be trifled with.

Our best guess says this latest missile launch was a show for the hardliners and a demonstration of strength for a citizenry that is growing extremely restless. But if the Iranians think they can draw Trump to the negotiating table with threats and saber-rattling, they may have another thing coming.

Like, say, a Patriot missile or two.

  1. Americans, Please send this to everyone you know:New York Times Correspondent Thomas released a Documentary, Our Man In Tehran, Life Inside Iran. They post a picture of Obama dressed as an Iranian.

  2. What about dropping some of those penetrating bombs and the MOAB on their nuclear sites. Let’s help them glow green in the dark…

    • Well I would like too say send them Americas best send them the MX but billy boy Clinton took them all out when he was in the white house damn commie he be.

  3. One night of cruise missiles and bombs from our stealth forces would completely eliminate Iran’s ability to threaten the Straight or its neighbors. After getting over the shock of their defeat the Iranian people would take to the streets in the millions and force a regime change. The entire world other than Russia and Syria would cheer loudly.

  4. Trump is just waiting his time and then POW, they will get it. That’s what wash. doesn’t get, Trump’s been around a block a few times and quiet diff. then your daily politician. I’m setting back and watching him in action –after awhile you can see a hidden pattern forming. He has yet to show his cards to anyone.

  5. After the efforts of the previous presidents to include the Kenyan they have good reason to doubt our resolve. Fortunately, the President is not one of the others on this country.

  6. Patriot missiles sucked. They were easily fooled by junk falling off the SCUD missles. Wrong device for interception. Swarm tactics? Bet we have a device that explodes like a grenade but the pieces skip over the water like a stone but explode on contact with anything out there, clearing a square mile or two of boats. One cruise missile or smart bomb in someone’s mailbox would be a convincer too.

  7. Iran should not only worry about Trump but also Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iran, and Saudia Arabia. President Trump WILL NOT BACK DOWN FROM IRAN’S THREATS unlike Obama and even George Bush and Bill Clinton

  8. Finally have a President with a set of Stones, who doesn’t give flowery speeches and sing at times to impress the sheep. One wrong move on the part of some constant unstable nation and there won’t be a red line drawn, but maybe a red streak in the night, led by the finest technical missile that won’t miss the mark. We will not tolerate another obama Behnghauhzi, nor have a innocent video maker blamed for a attack.

  9. A newspaper in The USA had it said best in a cartoon before President Reagan took office. It showed 2 arabs reading a note, one arab red the note it said ‘What is big and flat and black in the middle east?’, the other arab answered and said ‘It sounds like us the day after Reagan takes over as US President! GO GET THEM PRESIDENT TRUMP!

  10. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out
    the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  11. Greetings! I’ve been following your website for
    a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you
    a shout out from Dallas Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the great job!
