Obama Admin Totally Wants New Sanctions On Iran For Missile Test

Team Obama, which has given Iran virtually everything they want with the Iran Deal, a deal which kicks the can down the road 8-15 years in terms of Iran developing a nuclear weapon, rather than stopping their program, is a wee bit upset over Iran’s missile test

(Reuters) The United States, Britain, France and Germany called on Wednesday for the United Nations Security Council’s Iran sanctions committee to take action over a missile test by Tehran that they said violated a U.N. ban.

In a letter containing details on the launch, they said the ballistic missile was “inherently capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.”

The letter, seen by Reuters, was sent to the committee after the United States raised the issue in the 15-member Security Council.

The Iran Deal also limits those missiles, which would take the place of the 2010 sanctions passed by the Security Council.

Diplomats have said it was possible for the sanctions committee to blacklist additional Iranian individuals or entities if it determined that the missile launch had breached the U.N. ban. However, they said Russia and China, which have opposed the sanctions on Iran’s missile program, might block any such moves.

Might? Will. Just like they will block any re-institution of any sanctions for the Iran Deal via “snapback”.

“The United States will continue to press the Security Council to respond effectively to any future violations … Full and robust enforcement of all relevant U.N. measures is and will remain critical,” U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said in a statement on Wednesday.

Iran has violated UN sanctions numerous times. Why would anyone think they won’t violate the nuclear deal?

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday conditionally approved the nuclear deal but warned it would be violated if any of the six world powers imposed any sanctions on any level and under any pretext.

Khamenei is sending a pointed message, extortion, really, to Team Obama, telling them not to try anything or Iran will scuttle Obama’s “historic” and “legacy defining” deal.
