Right now the United States is discussing the future of the Iran nuclear deal and deciding whether or not to remain a party to the JCPOA. Whether the US decides to remain in the agreement or withdraw, it is essential that Iran’s continued pursuit of ballistic
missile technology be addressed for what it is – a part of Iran’s nuclear weapons program. Iran has tested ballistic missiles that can easily reach our friend and ally Israel, and Iran has made its hostile intentions towards Israel extremely clear, even painting
direct threats to Israel on these weapons prior to launch. The JCPOA does not adequately address Iran’s ballistic missile development, even though Iran’s intended use for such weapons is obvious.
