U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Outlines Evidence of Growing Threats From Iran…

In a stunning display of international transparency, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley presents actual, physical, incontrovertible and, yes, uncomfortable, evidence of Iranian weapons that have been used by proxy fighters against allied nations.  The presentation takes place at joint base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, DC and consists of formerly classified intelligence gathering presented openly to the international community.

Ambassador Nikki Haley presents an assembly of actual Iranian missiles and weapons that have been fired against mid-east allies within the peace coalition.  After a brief speech outlining the material on display, Mrs. Haley takes questions from international media.

.

[Transcript] It’s really important that you be here today, because we have a story to tell, and the story is a very important one. And it’s not just important for the United States, it’s important for the entire international community. As President Trump announced on October 13, the United States is taking a new approach to Iran by focusing on all of the regime’s destabilizing behavior. That means we are focused not just on the nuclear program.

We’re also taking a hard look at Iran’s ballistic missile program, its arms exports, and its support for terrorists, proxy fighters, and dictators.

Our new strategy was prompted by the undeniable fact that the Iranian regime’s behavior is growing worse. The nuclear deal has done nothing to moderate the regime’s conduct in other areas.

Aid from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to dangerous militias and terror groups is increasing. Its ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in warzones across the region. It’s hard to find a conflict or a terrorist group in the Middle East that does not have Iran’s fingerprints all over it.

Four days ago, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif wrote an op-ed assuring the world that Iran has been misunderstood. He wrote, “Iran’s military capabilities comply with international law and are entirely defensive.”

Instead of stoking violence, Zarif promised that Iran and its partners, “labor to put out fires [while] the arsonists in our region grow more unhinged.”

But the United Nations just released a new report that tells the opposite story. It tells the story of Iran as the arsonist. The report shows the Tehran regime not putting out fires, but fanning the flames of conflict in the region.

This was the Secretary-General’s fourth report detailing Iranian compliance – or noncompliance – with UN Resolution 2231. That resolution places specific prohibitions on Iranian conduct.

In its strongest language yet, the Secretary-General’s report describes violation after violation of weapons transfers and ballistic missile activity.

The United States welcomes this report, as should every nation concerned about Iranian expansion. We are grateful for the depth of the UN’s inspection and analysis. Most telling, the report makes a convincing case that Iran is illegally providing the Houthi militants in Yemen with dangerous weapons. The report provides devastating evidence of missiles, conventional arms, and explosive boats of Iranian origin used by the rebels in Yemen – all of which violate UN resolutions.

The United States and our partners went to great lengths to support the UN investigations into Iranian violations by declassifying evidence so that the world could better be informed of the extent of Iran’s malign activities.

As you know, we do not often declassify this type of military equipment recovered from these attacks. But today we are taking an extraordinary step of presenting it here in an open setting. We did this for a single, urgent purpose: because the Iranian regime cannot be allowed to engage in its lawless behavior any longer. International peace and security depends on us working together against the Iranian regime’s hostile actions.

The fight against Iranian aggression is the world’s fight. The United States is acting today in the spirit of transparency and international cooperation that is necessary to defeat this threat.

In this warehouse is concrete evidence of illegal Iranian weapons proliferation, gathered from direct military attacks on our partners in the region.

Behind me is an example of one of these attacks. These are the recovered pieces of a missile fired by Houthi militants from Yemen into Saudi Arabia. The missile’s intended target was the civilian airport in Riyadh, through which tens of thousands of passengers travel each day.

I repeat: This missile was used to attack an international civilian airport in a G-20 country.

Just imagine if this missile had been launched at Dulles Airport or JFK, or the airports in Paris, London, or Berlin. That’s what we’re talking about here. That’s what Iran is actively supporting.

What is most revealing about this missile is what’s not here. This is a short-range ballistic missile. It is missing the large stabilizer fins that are typically present on these kinds of missiles.

The Iranian Qiam missile is the only known short range ballistic missile in the world that lacks such stabilizer fins and includes nine valves that you will see running along the length of the missile. Those valves are essentially Iranian missile fingerprints.

On your walk through, you will also see missile debris stamped with the logo of Shahid Bagheri Industries, an Iranian manufacturer.

Those are just two of the many pieces of evidence that tell us of this missile’s Iranian origins.

It was made in Iran, then sent to Houthi militants in Yemen. From there it was fired at a civilian airport, with the potential to kill hundreds of innocent civilians in Saudi Arabia.

You will see more than that. In this warehouse there is also material from an anti-tank guided missile. Such missiles have a range of over two miles and can destroy tanks, and even buildings. You will see material from an unmanned aerial vehicle, also known as a kamikaze drone, that can take out radar sites. You will see material from a SHARK-33 explosive boat. These are boats with a warhead inside them that explodes on impact. They can blow six feet wide holes in the hulls of ships.

All of these weapons include parts made in Iran, some by Iran’s government-run defense industry. All are proof that Iran is defying the international community. And not just one time. This evidence demonstrates a pattern of behavior in which Iran sows conflict and extremism in direct violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

In just a minute, Laura Seal from our Defense Department will walk you through the items gathered here and explain their connection to the Tehran regime. We welcome a thorough examination of this material, not just by the members of the press here today, but by the international community.

Several countries will be sending delegations here to view this material in the next few days. Some have already been here. We are inviting the entire UN Security Council to see it for themselves. And we are inviting all members of Congress to view it.

This evidence is part of what has led the U.S. intelligence community to conclude, unequivocally, that these weapons were supplied by the Iranian regime.

The evidence is undeniable. The weapons might as well have had “Made in Iran” stickers all over it.

The United States stands ready to share what we know to further the cause of peace. We ask our friends and our allies to do the same. Iran is determined to undermine the international consensus against its conduct.

We must speak with one voice in exposing the regime for what it is: a threat to the peace and security of the entire world. We call on all nations to join us in a united front resisting this global threat.  (read more)

      150 Billion, actually. The 1.7 or so was the upfront cash and gold payment or the hostages would not be freed.

      Demanding that kind of payment, delivered by our hand, in all manner of currencies and precious metals, scrounged up with great difficulty, is highly reminiscent of the Jizya. The annual tax to be paid in person by the “Infidels” they suffered to live amongst them, without unprofitable gratuitous decapitation.

      The delivery of the payment required that the victim be abused physically and verbally, and made to feel humbled, humiliated, diminished. Lesser creatures.

      I have zero doubt the entire Islamic Conquest knew it. Obama, being a Muslim from birth, from childhood instruction in madrassas, to his own personal public declaration of his faith, knows the significance of the manner of his largely symbolic payment, but he didn’t view it as a slam on him. He is one of them, playing on their team all along and always and forever, and he views the insult to be upon the American People.

      He’s down with that.

    Laying the groundwork for the trade and financial choking of Iran. Make them a pariah and anyone who does business with them a pariah. They are NOT A SELF SUFFICIENT COUNTRY and need to be able to trade with other countries. The GCC countries will be more than happy to make up for any oil shortfall from shutting down Iran. The plan is to expose the Iranians for what they are a malevolent international force. Any country that trades with them will find it costs them to do so.

    God has truly blessed America… We have everything we could possibly need here. No one can hold us hostage. Trump is the ONLY President who gets we “hold all the cards” and how to use them.

  10. Iran recently built a arms depot outside Damascus close to Isreal which the Israelis took out just a few days ago. Next time the Iranians will built their weapons depot inside Damascus to use its civilians as human shields.
    Damascus (it’s total and un-rebuildable destruction) plays a prominent part in end times prophecies.

    at WorldNetDaily website on the Obombie and Reptillary planned CIA Operation Zero Footprint to arm the Big Mo Hood overthrows in Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, Libya and Syria. PNAC, the Project for the New American Century, released in Sept 2000 called for US overthrow of seven mideast nations. This plan required a New Pearl Harbor, delivered a year later.

    The blueprints for that missile behind UN Ambassador Haley had to have been started being drawn at least 2 years ago, deep within that magical, wonderful, fabulous Age Of Buraq. The Iranians had no worries, Hillary was to succeed Sheikh Buraq and everything would be swept under a rug, as it always had been.
    400 million in unmarked foreign currencies on a midnight flight aboard a chartered commercial jet to the world’s foremost sponsor of terrorism was a wonderful gesture on Comrade Buraq’s part, wasn’t it?

    How much of this Iranian weaponry was made/financed/shipped to Iran by Russia?

    Russia has aided/defended Iran throughout its efforts in Syria.
    “There are international activists from around the world, reporters or citizen-journalists embedded with the rebels, Russian advisers embedded with Syrian units, Qatari trainers turning children into child soldiers with the rebels and Turkish officers trying to get the entire rabble moving in the right direction toward Damascus.”
    […]
    “Every leader of Al Qaeda was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but since the Muslim Brotherhood, like the New Left, is willing to non-violently take us over through front groups, rather than flying planes into buildings, they’re our idea of the good guys, even if they have the same objectives as Al Qaeda, just a different way of getting there. But you could probably say the same thing about the people who were running the USSR in 1933 and the people who are running the United States and the European Union in 2013.”

    “Obama isn’t satisfied with wrecking just Libya, Tunisia and Egypt. Russia isn’t satisfied with financing 50 years of war in the region even though it’s on the verge of bankruptcy. President Hollande of France isn’t satisfied with being on the verge of bankruptcy and only wrecking Libya.”

    Much more here: http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-road-to-damascus.html

    Of course McCain, McMullin and Kinzinger are and have acted on the side of Obama/ISIS/Muslim Brotherhood. Never forget that. Ever.

    • marbiol – Was that the one where Amb. Stevenson was demanding immediate action from the Soviets? In fact, he said, sternly, “I am willing to wait until Hell freezes over?”

      I couldn’t believe the media reaction – Boy, old Adlai really got tough there! Yeah, he was really angry – even used the shocking expletive – Hell!

      Meanwhile, I was laughing my head off. “Those Eastern US pansies sure don’t know how to cuss!”
