Besides having to endure the Deep State’s shenanigans with their loyal helpers controlling the major news organizations, President Donald Trump must also contend with a laundry list of alleged un-American actions and decisions made by a Democratic Party that’s become unhinged. Thanks to the generosity of former President Barack Obama to the radical Islamist-run nation of Iran, President Trump — and the American people — are facing a non-stop, overt military buildup by the world’s chief benefactor of Muslim terrorists.
Iranian leaders have plainly admitted that since the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal — the brainchild of Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry — went into effect, their military services are spending enormous amounts of cash that the U.S. released under the agreement.
The Iranian’s American-provided windfall enabled them to purchase of new military equipment and other armaments from a number of sources. Iran made multi-million dollar arms deals with Russia since economic sanctions were nixed as part of the deal. They even purchased a missile defense system that’s been compared to the Israel’s Iron Dome.
A number of U.S. lawmakers and administration officials suspect that some of the Obama administration’s $1.7 billion cash payment to Iran is being used to fund terrorists and finance their acts of terrorism in the Middle East, North Africa and even Europe.
Recently, Iran’s Defense Minister General Hossein Dehqan announced that the country’s capacity to produce combat weapons has seen an astonishing growth even before the Obama handout, according to Iranian news media such as Iran’s Fars News Agency.
“The capacity to manufacture individual combat weapons, including Kalashnikov, and mass combat arms like different machine guns has [increased] a 100 times in just 4 years,” General Dehqan said, addressing a crowd in the province of Qom on Monday.
While all eyes are on North Korea’s missile development and nuclear weapons threat, the Iranian military buildup goes practically unnoticed by America’s political establishment.
Boasting to the Iranian people about how the government has focused on producing different military equipment, including ballistic and cruise missiles and has progressed in this area astonishingly, the Defense Minister Dehqan boldly claimed. “Today we have reached a level of power and capability in the missile field that we can produce missiles with any destruction and precision-striking power,” he said.
General Dehqan also boasted that the military plans to bolster the country’s defense capabilities and the Armed Forces’ combat and operational power in the Iranian new year.
New weapons and equipment will be produced domestically in the new year and “the combat and operational power of the Armed Forces will [sic] boost remarkably,” General Dehqan said.
He also referred to the achievements and measures adopted last year, and said the defense industries’ capacity in area of warfare tools and weapons has increased . General Dehqan said that the defense industries have taken major steps in different missile, aerospace, telecommunications, electronics, optics and engineering fields in recent years.
Not forgetting to take a verbal potshot at Israel, Gen. Dehqan said that the international community must turn up the pressure on the Israelis to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and place the Jews’ nuclear activities under the surveillance of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
