The Iranian regime has launched a new missile called “Satellite Launch”, which has led to a new wave of political isolation.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote in a press statement entitled “Warning the Iranian regime about launching space missiles that violates resolution 2231,” wrote: The Iranian regime’s Ministry of Defense has publicly announced plans to test three missile launch systems in the coming months. Such actions once again violate the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.
Against the stance by the US Department of State and Pompeo, on Thursday, January 3, 2019, Zarif, the foreign minister of the regime, reacted and wrote in his Twitter: “Our satellite launches and missile tests are not in violation of resolution 2231, and this is the United States that has violated this resolution.
The Iranian regime claims that the missiles are not capable of carrying nuclear warheads, and the United Nations Security Council resolution emphasizes this issue, but the United States and European countries are against it.
The fact is that the missile range is decisive and turning the normal warhead into a nuclear warhead is easy.
Therefore, Western countries carry out such experiments, along with the threats of the Revolutionary Guards, which states: “Our missile range reaches Europe, and it is known as a threat.”
But the question is why in this situation the Iranian regime makes a problem for itself?
What is reality?
It is clear that in these circumstances, considering the problems and crises the regime has in all areas, it is considering launching satellites to divert the cases from the main crisis.
The mullahs regime is ready to accept a crisis in foreign relations to solve its main crisis
But what is the main crisis of the regime?
The critical crisis for the mullahs is the explosive state of society on the one hand and the situation of its forces on the other hand, which have lost their morale.
The regime is in dire need of garnering power against the waves of protests and demonstrations of the Iranian people, and on the other hand, it needs a false hope for its morale.
But since it does not dare to have a direct power, like launching military missiles, it wants to hit the target under the guise of satellite launchers and scientific and research. As was the case with the atomic program claiming a nuclear medicine regime for medical purposes and the like.
