US puts Iran “on notice” after missile test. Iran has long boasted of having missiles that can travel 2,000 kilometres (1,200 miles), putting much of the Middle East, including Israel, in range. Such capability would also put U.S. bases in the region in danger. In the wake of Iran’s ballistic missile test earlier this week, national security adviser Michael Flynn said:
‘As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice.’
However, it is not clear exactly what being “on notice” actually means.
Remember pusillanimous Obama’s ‘red line’ vis-a-vis Assad’s use of banned weapons against his own people? Let’s hope any Trump red lines will lead to a green light for action. Simply remaining on amber will have the ayatollahs jumping lights to their hearts’ content.
