Pompeo Warns Iran Against Launching Rockets Into Space

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a statement preemptively warning Iran against following through on a plan to launch rockets into space, saying that they are required to cease all nuclear-related activities and that the US will not allow them to put international security at risk.

Pompeo further accused Iran of being in defiant of UN Security Council Resolution 2231 related to missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, saying that Iran must not launch any rockets into space as a result.

Iranian officials dismissed these allegations, saying that no UN resolution prohibits them from sending vehicles into space. This is not the first time this has been a subject of dispute between the US and Iran on the UNSC 2231.

UNSC 2231 forbids Iran from developing nuclear-capable ballistic missiles. The US has long argued that this amounts to a ban on any ballistic missiles, irrespective of cargo, while Iran says that since they are confirmed by the UN’s IAEA to not have any nuclear weapons, it doesn’t really apply to defensive ballistic missiles.

Furthermore, the US has argued that ban can be extrapolated to include pretty much anything missile related, as well as launching rockets into space.

Secretary of State Pompeo, your amazing ability to lie to get what you want, is well documented.
Pompeo lied to Congress about Yemen to protect arms sales

You accusations against Iran in this area have no merits and are very fact-free. You are making up the argument that if Iran shoots any more rockets into space, the Iranian government should be defined as a "regional aggressor", and that should be the justification for an American strike against it.

And to add insult to injury, the IAEA, at its last round of inspections, declared that Iran was following the letter of the law, and does not possess any nuclear weapons.

And here is what they said in October of 2018:

Benjamin Netanyahu, please go away

The article goes on to state:

The IAEA seems to have had enough of Netanyahu’s mumbo jumbo. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano responded to Netanyahu by saying that the IAEA's work "must always be impartial, factual, and professional.”

Without a single evidence, the mad man from Tel Aviv proceeded to say:

“We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the planet’s most dangerous weapons. We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues. Iran’s leaders sow chaos, death and destruction. Iran’s leaders plunder the nation’s resources to enrich themselves and to spread mayhem across the Middle East and far beyond. The dictatorship used the funds to build nuclear-capable missiles.”[3]

Right now, Netanyahu is in one of the roughest patches in his political career, as it is still uncertain as to whether Israel's Attorney General will indict him for corruption.

He has just dissolved his Parliament, and he is desperate for a distraction, which I believe, President Trump just gave him, in announcing the the Syrian withdrawal process to end in April.

April happens to be the month when snap elections are to be held in Israel; so in essence, President Trump has given him time to do something "amazingly evil" between now and April, perhaps against Iran; perhaps against Lebanon; perhaps against Syria, because he wants to look "butch" to his electorate.

There is no accident here in the timing; we may well be looking for a "March/April "Surprise", generated by Israel, and supported by the US government, again, to keep Netanyahu in office.
