Yes, you heard that right. As Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama administration beg the Iranians for a deal that allows Iran to get a nuclear weapon, Iran is fielding a new missile that could allow it to hit most of Europe and, when placed on ships or submarines, could hit the United States.
Iran is fielding this missile in the face of American demands for disarmament. The mullahs obviously don’t respect this administration; in fact, it seems they are getting more brash the more desperate Obama and Kerry get.
The Jerusalem Post reports, “New Iranian long-range missile could extend Iran’s strike capability to a wide swatch of Europe and potentially far beyond, an Israeli analyst said this week. Tal Inbar, the head of space research at the Fisher Institute for Air and Space Strategic Studies in Herzliya, said that with their 2,500 kilometer range, the Soumar missile unveiled by the Islamic Republic on Sunday ‘entails a 25% increase in the range of Iran’s missiles and if we consider the future possibility that the missiles would be deployed on ships and submarines, we see the ability to project their power worldwide.’”

The missile was apparently developed without the knowledge of the Russians who have said previously that Iranian missiles were not a threat to Europe and there was no need for American missile defense in Europe.
According to the Jerusalem Post, “In his message, Inbar also wrote that the missiles could potentially have an impact on the issue of missile defense systems in Europe, in that Russia has traditionally been opposed to such a program and has argued that Iranian missiles would not be able to reach Europe or the United States. ‘This is why the Iranian step [to reveal the missiles] is very interesting – if the Russians were not aware of this move.’”
This development is direct confirmation of the threat that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid out in front of Congress in his speech last week, to the fury of the Obama administration and the liberal media.

I’m sure an apology from the White House to Netanyahu will be issued shortly.
