Iran you know the ones the Obama admin just gave over a cool billion$ to NOT develop ballistic missiles to are going to expand military spending by 5% including missile development. Who could have guessed that they would use "found money" to use for a military expansion.

www.yahoo.com...
DUBAI (Reuters) - Iranian lawmakers approved plans on Monday to expand military spending to five percent of the budget, including developing the country's long-range missile program which U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to halt.

The vote is a boost to Iran's military establishment – the regular army, the elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and defense ministry - which was allocated almost 2 percent of the 2015-16 budget.



Is Iran on a collision course with Trump. Yes, yes they are and it is sad, the people of Iran DO NOT want to have the US as an enemy. They are a repressed people and I am heart broken to have an idea of what comes next.


But it could put the Islamic Republic on a collision course with the incoming Trump administration, and fuel criticism from other Western states which say Tehran's recent ballistic missile tests are inconsistent with a U.N. resolution on Iran.

That's what happens when you pay a ransom.
The middle east this administration left behind will be nothing but trouble for the next decade.

Those billions belongs to the Iranians and much more (frozen assets--- put that in your mind), Iranians are not like Israeli leeches to be spoon fed by the American tax payers.

And believe me; nothing has been paid to smear the Iranians. Iran has a right to develop whatever she wishes for. Stopping the nuclear development has nothing to do with missiles technologies.

Well...I do.

Iran is a loose cannon.

Speaking of cannons, just today a USN DDG fired multiple warning shots in the Strait.

'Abhorring a vacuum..." and all that...

The world needs a strong US, not what we have seen over the last 8 years.

I think Iran are reacting to the situation , Trumps election and his reassurances to Netanyahu.
Can't say I blame them.

Looks like Iran are putting the money Obama gave them to good use and throwing the useless Iran deal back over the fence.
Whilst the media worry about a travel ban, the big story is being largely ignored... Iran's test of a ballistic missle.

The money was returned to Iran as it was there's , at least he didn't have to pay the interest it would have accrued over the years.

Probably , which is why the smart money is on ramping up their security in case the America / Israel axis comes knocking.
