Iran Warns Obama and the United States to Back Off

The Obama administration and the United States need get a better understanding of Iran's nuclear defense capabilities, says one Iranian general.

"The White House should know that defense capacities and missile power, esspecially at the present juncture where plots and threats are galore, is among the Iranian nation's red lines and a backup for the country's national security and we don’t allow anyone to violate it," Iranian Deputy Chief of Staff Brig-Gen Maassoud Jazzayeri was quoted by the Fars News Agency as saying.

"The U.S. calculations about the Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation are fully incorrect."

Obama's sanctions seem to have little effect on the Islamic regime as it has repeated test-fired ballistic that the IRGC says are intended to "show Iran's deterrent power and... ability to confront any threat."

"The reason we designed our missiles with a range of 2000 km is to be able to hit our enemy the Zionist regime from a safe distance," said Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, according to the ISNA agency.

But don't worry, Iran's missile program is subject to UN Security Council resolution 2231 that calls on the Islamic Republic not to develop missiles designed to be capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
