Irans: Latest missile, sorry space program launch blows up on the launch pad

(Tehran)  Whilst the mad mullahs continue to play the victim card at the hamds of POTUS regards their ballistic missile program which they claim they don't have. Today saw the third failure of an attempt by Iran to laumch a rocket into space. Yup it appears that after lighting the blue touch paper and walking away the rocket blew up in the Mad mullahs face.

Now before anybody starts to complain about my post, in July 2015  United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 which in a nutshell placed heavy limits on Irans ballistic missile program and since then we have seen Iran carry out the following tests:
  • On 10 October 2015, Iran tested  its Emadmissile that has a declared range of 1700 km and a new precision guidance system
  • On 21 November 2015, Iran reportedly carried out a test of the Ghadr 110, having a range variously reported between 1500 and 2000 km.
  • On 8 and 9 March 2016, Iran test fired several missiles, including the Qiam 1.
  • On 29 January 2017, Iran tested the medium-range Khorramshahr ballistic missile that flew 600 miles before exploding, in a failed test of a re-entry vehicle.
  • On 23 September 2017, Iran tested another ballistic missile after showing it off at a military parade in Tehran.
  • During January 2018, six live Qiam missiles were fired into an ISIS stronghold in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province 
  • Between February and August 2018, Iran conducted seven test flights: one Khorramshahr, two Shahab-3 variants, one Qiam and three Zolfaghar ballistic missiles. According to the president of the U.N. Security Council, was “in violation of resolution 2231” because the missiles were all category I systems under the Missile Technology Control Regime and capable of carrying nuclear warheads.
  • In August 2018, Iran’s defence ministry unveiled two new missiles: the Fakour and the “Fateh Mobin” (Bright Conqueror), the latest addition to the Fateh-series of short-range tactical ballistic missiles with a range of about 1,300 kilometres (810 miles).
  • On Dec. 1, 2018, the Khorramshahr medium-range ballistic missile was tested at its facility near Shahrud, in northeast Iran.
  • On Feb. 2, 2019, Tehran announced the successful test of the Hoveizeh cruise missile with a range of more than 1,350 kilometres (838 miles) during celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
  • On Feb. 7, 2019, the Dezful ballistic missile was unveiled, with a range of 1,000 kilometres (600 miles). Iran’s Press TV quoted Hajizadeh as saying the Revolutionary Guards will “continue missile tests … and plan to carry out more than 50 missile tests each year.”

There lies the reason why the US isn't happy with Iran and pulled out of the nuke agreement. The Iranians have been sticking two fingers up at the world, regards its nuke program and the liberals blame POTUS for offending the Mad Mullahs. It’s so called civilian missile program is anything but and simply allows Iran to claim to be building its space program. Well today they went for third time lucky in which to launch a small satellite (Nahid-1) which has a life of a few weeks after the previous 2 attempts this year failed. Well guess what, that failed as well with the launch vehicle exploding on the launch pad.
