Iran: ‘American soil is now within the range of Iranian bombs’

One day after the United Nations Security Council voted in favor of lifting the arms embargo on Iran, the ruling mullahs unveiled a ballistic missile that reportedly can reach the United States.

Those who advocate pursuing a policy of appeasement toward the ruling mullahs as a means of changing the Iranian regime’s behavior fail to understand that the more the international community will give the mullahs, the more Tehran will become belligerent and emboldened. One day after the United Nations Security Council voted in favor of lifting the arms embargo on Iran, for instance, the ruling mullahs unveiled a ballistic missile that reportedly can reach the United States.

The headline of a report by Iran’s state-controlled Afkar News read in Farsi, “American Soil Is Now Within the Range of Iranian Bombs.” The report boasted about the damage that the Iranian regime could inflict on the U.S:

“By sending a military satellite into space, Iran now has shown that it can target all American territory; the Iranian parliament had previously warned [the U.S.] that an electromagnetic nuclear attack on the United States would likely kill 90 percent of Americans.”

The report also threatened the EU, which voted in favor of lifting the arms embargo against Iran:

“The same type of ballistic missile technology used to launch the satellite could carry nuclear, chemical or even biological weapons to wipe Israel off the map, hit US bases and allies in the region and US facilities, and target NATO even in the far west of Europe.”

The Trump administration attempted to re-impose international sanctions on Iran after the UN rejected extending the arms embargo. Those are the four rounds of UN sanctions that were in place before the Obama administration and the Iranian regime supposedly reached the JCPOA nuclear deal, which Tehran never signed.

When U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attempted to trigger the snapback, however, 13 of the 15 countries that are members of the Security Council wrote letters expressing their opposition to the U.S. proposal and to the re-imposition of international sanctions against Iran. The opponents included longtime transatlantic allies and partners of the U.S., including France, the United Kingdom, Germany and Belgium.

This is not the first time that the Iranian regime has become more aggressive after the international community pursued policies of appeasement with the mullahs. Recall when, upon the JCPOA’s agreement, former President Barack Obama pointed out that he was “confident” that the lifting of sanctions and the nuclear deal would “meet the national security needs of the United States and our allies.” It was even outlined in the JCPOA preamble that all signatories — which, again, Iran was not — “anticipate that full implementation of this JCPOA will positively contribute to regional and international peace and security.” What, though, was the outcome?

The international community witnessed a greater propensity for Yemeni Houthi rockets launched at civilian targets, the deployment of Hezbollah foot-soldiers in Syria, and increasing attacks by the Iranian-funded Hamas into southern Israel. With billions of dollars of revenue pouring into the pockets of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Tehran did not change its behavior for the better. Instead, it became more empowered and emboldened to pursue its revolutionary ideals of anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism.

Iran became, according to the U.S. Department of State, “the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism.”

At the peak of these appeasement policies towards the mullahs during the Obama Administration, Iran was emboldened to publicly harass the U.S. Navy, detained U.S. sailors and imprisoned American citizens. Khamenei also repeatedly threatened “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” and made incendiary remarks about wiping Israel from the face of earth “in less than 8 minutes.”

As the international community gave the regime more, Iran intensified test-firing its ballistic missiles, capable of carrying nuclear warheads, an act in clear violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231:

“Paragraph 3 of Annex B of resolution 2231 (2015) calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.”

After each act of appeasement towards the ruling mullahs, the regime also ratcheted up its domestic repression and human rights violations as well. According to Human Rights Watch, after the JCPOA “nuclear deal” and after sanctions were lifted, Iran escalated the imprisonment and executions of human rights and political activists. The regime became “the top executioner of women and holds the record on per capita executions in the world” and, according to Amnesty International, the world’s leadi

在联合国安理会投票通过对伊朗解除武器禁运的一天后,执政的毛拉军发射了一种弹道导弹,据报道该弹道导弹可以到达美国。

那些主张奉行对统治的毛拉军进行​​app靖政策以改变伊朗政权行为的人,未能理解国际社会给予毛拉得越多,德黑兰就会变得越战越勇气。例如,在联合国安理会投票赞成取消对伊朗的武器禁运后的一天,执政的毛拉军发射了一种弹道导弹,据报道该弹道导弹可以到达美国。

伊朗国家控制的《阿富卡新闻》(Afkar News)的报告标题在波斯语中写道:“美国的土壤现在已落入伊朗炸弹范围之内。”该报告吹嘘伊朗政权可能对美国造成的损害:

“通过将军用卫星送入太空,伊朗现在表明它可以瞄准整个美国领土;伊朗议会先前曾警告[美国]对美国进行电磁核攻击可能会杀死90%的美国人。”

该报告还威胁欧盟,欧盟投票赞成取消对伊朗的武器禁运:

“用于发射卫星的相同类型的弹道导弹技术可能携带核武器,化学武器甚至生物武器,以将以色列从地图上抹去,袭击该地区和美国设施的美国基地和盟友,甚至在北约以西将北约作为目标欧洲。”

在联合国拒绝扩大武器禁运之后,特朗普政府试图对伊朗实施国际制裁。这些是在奥巴马政府和伊朗政权达成JCPOA核协议之前四轮联合国制裁,这是德黑兰从未签署过的。

但是,当美国国务卿迈克·蓬佩奥(Mike Pompeo)试图触发此次反弹时,安理会15个国家中有13个国家写信表示反对美国的提议以及对伊朗实施国际制裁。反对者包括长期的跨大西洋盟友和美国伙伴,包括法国,英国,德国和比利时。

在国际社会奉行毛拉安抚政策之后,这不是伊朗政权第一次变得更具侵略性。回想起根据 JCPOA 达成的协议,前总统巴拉克·奥巴马(Barack Obama)指出他“有信心”,解除制裁和核协议将“满足美国及其盟国的国家安全需要”。 JCPOA序言中甚至提到,所有签署国(同样不是伊朗)“预计该JCPOA的全面实施将为地区和国际和平与安全做出积极贡献。”但是结果如何呢?

国际社会目睹了向平民目标发射也门胡蒂火箭的更大倾向,真主党的步兵在叙利亚的部署以及伊朗资助的哈马斯对以色列南部的袭击不断增加。随着数十亿美元的收入涌入伊朗最高领导人阿亚图拉· 阿里· 哈梅内伊(Ayatollah Ali Khamenei)和伊斯兰革命卫队(IRGC)的腰包,德黑兰并未改变其行为。取而代之的是,它变得更有能力和勇气追求其反美主义和反犹太主义的革命理想。

根据美国国务院的报告,伊朗成为“世界上最差的恐怖主义赞助国”。

在奥巴马政府执政期间对毛拉采取的app靖政策达到顶峰时,伊朗大胆地公开骚扰了美国海军,拘留了美国水手并囚禁了美国公民。哈梅内伊还反复威胁“美国之死”和“以色列之死”,并发表煽动性言论,称“在不到8分钟的时间内将以色列从地面上抹去”。

随着国际社会对该政权给予更多的支持,伊朗加强了其能够携带核弹头的弹道导弹的试射,这明显违反了联合国安全理事会第2231号决议:

“第2231(2015)号决议附件B第3段呼吁伊朗不要进行任何与旨在运载核武器的弹道导弹有关的活动,包括使用这种弹道导弹技术的发射。”

在对执政的毛拉进行each靖之后,该政权还加大了对国内的镇压和侵犯人权的行为。根据人权观察,在JCPOA的“核协议”和解除制裁之后,伊朗将人权和政治活动家的监禁和处决升级。该政权成为“女性最高处决者,并保持着世界上人均处决的记录”,据国际特赦组织称,
