U.S. President Donald Trump put Iran on notice, warning the Islamic Republic after its ballistic missile test on Jan. 29 that it was playing with fire and all U.S. options were on the table.
On Wednesday, Iran completed their 3 day military drills in response to President Trump. The military drills were a full scale response to a U.S. conflict.
“The enemy should not be mistaken in its assessments, and it will receive a strong slap in the face if it does make such a mistake. The message of these exercises … for world arrogance is not to do anything stupid. Everyone could see today what power we have on the ground.”~General Mohammad Pakpour
According to news agency Tasnim, the Revolutionary Guards test-fired “advanced rockets” and used drones as well as artillery, tanks and helicopters and vast ground maneuvers.
Iranian state TV showed missiles being fired from rocket launchers on the backs of military vehicles yesterday in the central desert, at the start of a three day test exercise for the elite revolutionary guard.
The Tasnim news agency reported that the tests of the “smart and advanced missiles” were all successful.
General Mohammad Pakpour, head of the revolutionary guard ground forces, told state TV the tests “sent a message to any potential adversaries we are ready to give a crushing response to any threat.”
To this point President Trump has proven that he will not be threatened or intimidated by Iran and now we must wait and see how he will respond to Iran’s latest defiance.
President Trump has a full plate of global conflicts left behind by the Obama administration, North Korea, South China Sea, Syria, Russia and Iran are the fore-front of global conflicts. Any of which could go hot on any given day, it seems President Trump was well aware of the global issues as he has surrounded himself with the top military brass.
