Iran launched numerous ballistic missiles over the last few days as a part of a military exercise, Fox News reported. By doing so, the nation breached a U.N. security council resolution.
The missiles launched today had a short range of up to 250 miles. Thankfully, the launches did not violate Iran’s nuclear deal with the U.S.
But the U.S. military is still extremely concerned by Iran’s launches. Gen. Lloyd Austin, outgoing commander of U.S. Central Command, reportedly told the Senate, “Some of the behavior that we’ve seen from Iran of late is certainly not the behavior that you would expect from a nation that wants to be taken seriously as a respected member of the international community.”
The missiles demonstrated Iran’s power and it’s ability to deal with threats.
Since the Nuclear Deal was signed, little has changed in Iran. Fox News reported that “the country’s leader, Ali Khamenei, continues to talk about the U.S. influence in the world and backs “the aggressive use of Hezbollah and other Shiite militias in the region.”
