Iran tests medium-range ballistic missile

Iran's foreign minister has refused to confirm that the country conducted a missile test, saying Iran's missile program is not part of a 2015 nuclear deal between his country and world powers.

Flynn was an outspoken critic of the Obama administration's policy toward Iran before he was chosen by Trump to serve as his national security adviser.

"Instead of being thankful to the United States for these agreements, Iran is now feeling emboldened", Flynn said.

Michael Makovsky of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) argues in an email to Right Turn that "We should threaten to shoot them down, especially if they leave their borders, and we should construct a regional defense shield".

DE union lawyer says inmates have 5 hostages
An aerial view of the prison showed about two dozen men standing in three groups on an open space of prison's sprawling campus. There was an assault at the same prison last week, on Saturday, an inmate squirted an unknown liquid at a correction officer.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tuesday cautioned the United States against politicizing the Islamic Republic's legitimate efforts at reinforcing its defense capabilities.

"We have said with this administration that we are not going to show a blind eye to these things that happen", Haley said. "And we won't be using a man like Secretary Kerry that has absolutely no concept of negotiation, who's making a awful and laughable deal, who's just being tapped along as they make weapons right now, and then goes into a bicycle race at 72 years old, and falls and breaks his leg", Trump said while announcing his candidacy for president.

But they were reticent about what actions they might take if Iran continues ballistic missile tests that it says are for defensive purposes only.

Some of the missiles in Iran's arsenal have a large enough range to strike many parts of the Middle East, including U.S. bases and its regional enemy Israel. Iran, however, maintains that none of its missiles have been created to be capable of carrying nuclear warheads, because nuclear weapons have basically no place in the Islamic Republic's defense doctrine.

'Amour' actress Emmanuelle Riva dies at 89
Emmanuelle Riva, a French star of screen and stage who was nominated for an Academy Award for best actress in 2013, has died . Riva was born on February 24, 1927 in rural France and made her way to Paris at 19 to the dismay of her working-class family.

The US warned on Tuesday that the test, reportedly of a medium-range ballistic missile, was "absolutely unacceptable". The official had no other details, including the type of missile.

It's unlikely the missile test was done purely to aggravate Washington, with Iran looking to send signals of its strength to Israel as well as Saudi Arabia, with whom it is fighting a proxy war in Yemen. "It was also declared that no country is allowed to interfere in the country's defense affairs". It is not immediately clear where the missile traveled, but the launch was deemed successful. "We reject politically motivated comments regarding Iran's missile program".

Throughout the campaign, and in the early days of his presidency, Trump repeatedly criticized the nuclear deal. "Our concern about Iran's missiles are outside the scope of the JCPOA".
