According to the Iranian Fars news agency, an Iranian submarine has launched a cruise missile during drills in the Strait of Hormuz. The missile is said to be an upgraded version of the Nasr-1 and is believed to have a range capable of reaching American bases in the region.
As with other recent test launches on land, Iran’s development of missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads is in violation of the nuclear agreement and UN resolutions. Meanwhile, Iranian military leaders continue to antagonize the US and our allies with comments such as this:
“Because they know that they cannot enter a war, they raise the sound of threats. This is Trump’s technique. Trump is not made for wars. He issues threats to avoid a war.”~Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Secretary, Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhann
Such words and actions should not be surprising. Evil reigns in the hearts and minds of Iranian military leadership and we must understand that the struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12) This is a battle fought on our knees, so let’s go to battle!
