  • Rocket Tests in the Straits of Hormuz

    Navy Cmdr. Kyle Raines, a CENTCOM spokesman, said Iran notified them 23 minutes before firing off test rockets. They came within 1,500 yards of a US aircraft carrier, a US destroyer and a French frigate.

    Gen. Ramezan Sharif, a Iranian Revolutionary Guards spokesman, said Iran did not fired any rockets and accused the U.S. of lying.

        On Wed, Obama admin gave Congress a draft listing brand new sanctions against Iran. These new ones will be imposed at the same time the ones you mentioned will be lifted. This does not make sense at all. Why must the Obama admin insist on going through with the Iran nuke deal even when facts are telling them they are making a big mistake.

          This NY Times article attempt to explain the new sanctions...


          The new sanctions are designed, administration officials say, to make clear that the United States remains committed to containing Iran’s regional ambitions, which have so rattled its Arab neighbors. But they are also intended as a carefully calibrated answer to critics, from Capitol Hill to Saudi Arabia, who have argued in recent months that President Obama is willing to overlook almost any Iranian transgression in order to avoid derailing the nuclear deal he pursued for so many years.

            I don't think it matters what we do anymore. The sanctions will be lifted, and there won't be new ones. The deal is happening, too much money involved for that to change.

                  Well, it doesn't matter what new sanctions he comes up with, as they won't be honored by anyone else. There's a lot of money about to be made, and it won't be spent here.
