Iran Tests New Ballistic Missiles: "The Power of Velayat"

On Tuesday, Iran launched a series of ballistic missile tests in complete defiance of U.S. sanctions handed down earlier this year.  The goal of the launches was to show the region Iran's capabilities to control territory.   Video and pictures of the launch were shown throughout Iran.


These tests, during the exercise named "The Power of Velayat" which is a reference to the religious doctrine of the Islamic republic's leadership, were undertaken by the Revolutionary Guards and its Aerospace wing.

However, Iran has promised John Kerry and Barack Obama that the newly funded research in the 'Nuclear Deal' would only be used for commercial use.  

Major General Ali Jafari, the Guards' top commander, and Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, spoke about the tests on television.

"Our main enemies, the Americans, who mutter about plans, have activated new missile sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran and are seeking to weaken the country’s missile capability," Hajizadeh said.

"The Guards and other armed forces are defenders of the revolution and the country will not pay a toll to anyone... and will stand against their excessive demands."
