yavar, as Salami was formerly head of the IRGC Aerospace Force, do you see this promotion assisting the expansion of Iranian missile development?

MOD EDIT:
@yavar could you please answer this question of Traveller's which he asked over one month ago.
Thank you,

With summer approaching in the northern hemisphere US consumption will increase. Many in Trump's base will not be happy spending more money to fuel their big SUVs. If Saudi Arabia doesn't increase production then prices will move higher thus possibly damaging the US economy, a factor largely propping up Trump's approval rating. Can't see China, India, and Europe putting up with this. The link mentions Russian contaminated crude, something I hadn't heard about and certainly another reason Europe won't be happy. Too bad Canada's pollies can't organize a pipeline expansion but as China isn't buying our canola anymore due to the Huawei CFO issue, they probably wouldn't buy our oil anyway.
 
I'm glad the US are stopping the shipments by refusing them to be made in US Dollars. I had visions of the US Navy Stopping the Tankers and turning them around!

But surprised US rivals, such as China and Russia and even allied Countries like Germany, haven't developed an alternative to trading in US Dollars decades ago. Surely it puts their economies at a huge disadvantage having to make all major International transactions in USD?

I know I'm being simplistic but what would be wrong with Iran accepting Chinese Yuan in return for their Oil? After all China is the ultimate Global Supermarket, hard to think of something you can't buy from them.

U.S CENTCOM Cheif General Kenneth McKenzie: "It sends a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime, that any attack on US interests will be met with unrelenting force... If a fight is to be had, we'll be fully prepared to respond, and defend our interests. And it won't be a fair fight."

With several big ticket military upgrades in the pipeline along with some serious research into hypersonics and military space kit, the last thing the US needs is to be pi$$ing away treasure in the region Trump referred to in a rather unflattering two word phrase. China, Russia, and cyber need to be the focus areas, not the ME.

Russian President Putin during press conference with Austrian president Alexander Van der Bellen 15/5/2019: "We are not ‘a fire brigade' "we cannot save everything" at time of height of probability of military conflict between the United States and Iran



for Iranian members who thinks in case of any conflict Russia or China will intervene or even help or even give lip service think twice never mind UNSC


Putin has sent it signal and message to west clearly after pampeo vist to Russia

It appears that Iran is alienating friends by it's decision to restart its nuclear program: Iran Is Scaring Off Its Friends, Too

The US claims of intelligence reports about the Iranian threat against US forces invokes memories of US intelligence reports of Saddam Hussein's WMDs prior to GW2 in 2003. This raises the question; how valid are these reports? Document of the Week: The 2002 National Intelligence Estimate on WMDs in Iraq

It appears that Trump is none to happy with Bolton and Pompeo's running the attack Iran at all costs line to fast and loose. Not because he believes that it is wrong, but because the timing isn't right: Trump, frustrated by advisers, is not convinced the time is right to attack Iran

What Trump's Iranian policy has done is to encourage and increase the influence of the hardliners in Iran who were as fond of the 2015 agreement as Trump was: Hardliners target Iran's president as U.S. pressure grows - Reuters

Iran AEOI production of 3.67% enriched uranium quadruples
The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi, made the remarks while addressing reporters at Natanz nuclear facility on Monday.
"This issue does not mean an increase in enrichment level or an increase in centrifuge machines or a change in the type of centrifuges, but the production capacity of these 3.67% enriched uranium will be quadrupled," Kamalvandi said.

Gen salami is educated as electrotechnic in UNI
been deputy of last IRGC chief which means he is fully informed and had access to all classified on Iran aerospace capability,



your question about missile development expansion is not valid
Iran ballistic missile expansion development was never stop and U.S and pentagon are well informed on it.


UNSC Holds Closed Session on Iran's Missile Tests
UN Security Council to meet on Iran missile test

the reason it was close door session it because U.S showed satellite pictures of how high the missile and its warhead traveled
so Iran been expanding and testing missile only thing Iran is not been doing is publicise in it.


if things escase and worsense then you can expect to see new strategic weapons and ICBM extra




North Korea 'secretly helped by Iran to gain nuclear weapons', British officials fear, Foreign Affairs Secretary Boris Johnson, orders investigation
North Korea’s sudden advancement in developing nuclear weapons may be due to secret support from Iran, British officials fear.

The Foreign Office is investigating whether “current and former nuclear states” helped Kim Jong-Un in his drive to mount nuclear warheads on missiles.

Senior Whitehall sources told The Sunday Telegraph it is not credible that North Korean scientists alone brought about the technological advances.

Iran is top of the list of countries suspected of giving some form of assistance, while Russia is also in the spotlight.
The fear is that outside influences have provided North Korea with equipment or expertise that has moved them closer to becoming a nuclear nation.

“North Korean scientists are people of some ability, but clearly they’re not doing it entirely in a vacuum,” said one Government minister.

Another Foreign Office source said: “For them to have done this entirely on their own stretches the bounds of credulity.”

Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, hinted at his department’s concerns last week as he took questions from MPs about the crisis.

“There is currently an investigation into exactly how the country has managed to make this leap in technological ability,” Mr Johnson said.

“We are looking at the possible role that may have been played, inadvertently or otherwise, by some current and former nuclear states.” He declined to name who he had in mind.

America will tomorrow seek approval from the United Nations Security Council for a ban on exporting oil to North Korea, according to a leaked draft resolution.

British officials have been taken aback by the speed of advancement in North Korea’s nuclear programme.

Last month the regime sent a missile over Japan, while this week an explosion at a testing site measured 6.3 on the Richter scale—10 times more powerful than the tremor from the last such test.

At the start of the year it was estimated that North Korea would need a decade before they could launch intercontinental ballistic missile with nuclear warheads, Government sources said. That has now been slashed to just a few years.

Britain’s most senior Cabinet ministers were briefed on the “fast forward” in the country’s nuclear capabilities at a National Security Council meeting last week, attended by senior intelligence figures.

Theresa May also talked to Donald Trump, the American President, about North Korea just days after he said “all options” remained on the table.

They argue that the "window of opportunity" for action is narrowing and may be closed if left until the end of Mr Trump's presidency.

However the US-UK focus remains on finding a diplomatic solution, with agreement among the UN Security Council being the key target.

Suspicions remain about how North Korea is managing to make such rapid advances in its nuclear programme.

Solid Government Propaganda video but one has to wonder how true the claims are that it can engage and destroy all targets including Stealth aircraft.

Well, by only looking on Video..the radar and tracking system from outside seems shown Chinese influences.
So just put on 'grain of salt' terms it is comparable to Chinese HQ9.

In the end, just like any other modern SAM system, all back to how good their radar and tracking software system are.
Still considering their situation, it's an achievement for them.

Iran locally-manufactured system IRGC Military Communication System “Sepehr-110” for voice and data transmission / system is also invulnerable to hacks, eavesdropping, radio jamming, and electromagnetic disturbance.
IRGC Unveils Military Communication System - Defense news - Tasnim News Agency
Thread locked, poster permanently Banned for continuing to post to DT clips of news articles without providing one's commentary as well as posting material that is in essence internal propaganda for Iran. For those who are unaware, there is no such thing as a RF transceiver system which is "invulnerable to hacks, eavesdropping, radio jamming, and electromagnetic disturbance."
