There can be only one real target.
While Iran has many enemies in the Middle East, none but Israel poses any real military obstacle to Tehran’s dreams of hegemony.
With that in mind, Iran’s government-controlled Fars news agency reported on Wednesday that the Islamic Republic has tripled its production of missiles.
A top officer in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards suggested that former US President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran had enabled this increase by removing strict international oversight of Iranian military activity.
“In the past we had to do a lot of explaining to various bodies for our actions, but it’s not like that anymore,” said Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.
Iran has missile capable of striking Israel on the other side of the region.
But far more dangerous is Iran’s effort to establish missile bases in neighboring Syria.
With this increased missile production and a firm military foothold in Israel’s war-torn neighbor, the Iranian threat to the Jewish state has grown exponentially.
