    Iran has "successfully" tested a new ballistic missile that can carry multiple warheads and can travel up to 2,000km, according to state media.

    The news of the test comes just hours after Iran's Revolutionary Guard unveiled the missile during a military parade in Tehran.

    The move was a direct challenge to US President Donald Trump, who in August signed a bill imposing mandatory penalties on those involved in Iran's ballistic missile programme and anyone who does business with those involved in the programme.

    Iran wants Trump to rescind the missile treaty it accomplishes three things-

    1) pits Trump against the rest of the country and the UN who helped negotiate the deal. Brings more "bad" press for him at a time when he is trying to deal with NKorea
    2) allows them to go back to business as usual, wasn't like the sanctions were hurting their nuclear program anyway and they have had the last year to refill their coffers.
    3) reenforces NK contention that there is no winning in bowing down to UN mandates or sanctions. NK will see that Iran made a deal and it was not honored, in their opinion, and it will further solidify their resolve to stay on track and Iran and NK can continue their shared programs.

    Jst my opinion on the matter
