Iran Fires Ballistic Missiles, Alarming U.S.
They’re flexing their muscles. Despite a landmark deal meant to contain Iran’s potential to become a nuclear power, the nation test launched some new ballistic missiles today. They say it’s to show they’re ready to confront any threats against the Republic, but the U.S. says it may violate a U.N. resolution meant to keep Iran from working on missiles that could potentially carry a nuclear warhead. Iran’s Foreign Minister says there’s no danger — his country doesn’t have any warheads — but others worry this is a reversal of Iran’s recently increased goodwill.
