Coming Showdown: Iran responds to US sanctions with military exercise

 AP


The scene is set for an altercation between the United States and Iran. 
For too long Iran has been getting away with being a rogue nation.
NY Post reports Iran responded to US sanctions by announcing a military exercise on Saturday.

In a show of defiance, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said it will hold an “exercise” that includes deployment of missiles, Agence France-Presse reported.

The Guards’ Web site said the maneuvers are a response to the “humiliating” sanctions’ imposed by Trump, adding that “domestically produced radar and missile systems . . .and cyber warfare systems” will be used in the exercise.’
The move came in response to the tough talk from the Trump Administration.

“The international community has been too tolerant of Iran’s bad behavior,” said Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser.

“The days of turning a blind eye to Iran’s hostile and belligerent actions toward the United States and the world community are over.”
