    Wow... what an arrogant country Iran is... America does not want them to have satellites or ICBMs, yet Iran is going ahead and developing satellite launch platforms in violation of Americas interests... is that actually against international law?

    Iran has signed no agreement not to develop its space launch industry.

    Suggesting Iran is developing weapons against America because Trump is being too soft on Iran is hilarious... first of all without any evidence they are actually making weapons... the evidence shown suggests they want to launch satellites.

    If Trump had kept to the agreement signed by Obama then Iran would not be the problem.

    If you beat a dog and slap a dog and stop feeding it and stop others from feeding it... you can bet your ass the first chance it gets it will bite you and why wouldn't it.

    Iran is not a dog... I am surprised they haven't attacked you yet... they have shown great restraint... something america never does.

    The next pressure point is likely to be the tanker, free but holed up off Gibraltar, on its trip across the Med given the US seizure order (on which they seem to have cocked up with the date) which may be implemented by the USN regardless of International Law.

    If they do there must be a good chance that Iran will close the Straits. Which may be the US intentions of course.

    Wonder if there is an Iran friendly military vessel nearby that could escort it for its trip?

    I mean Russia and Iran are not best friends but having a tiny Russian corvette escort the tanker preventing the USN from taking it would be very amusing and satisfying.

    Three failed sattelite launches in six months. At least this time the payload was not on board. They saved it. Now they have to find the fault. And it may not be with faulty design. It maybe with components imported . And it maybe from an attack. This attacks maybe non mechanical in nature. Passive attacks. By enemy sattelite or nearby ground station.

    ( 1 ) Electromagnetic attack .

    ( 2 ) Laser attack.

    Now they have to conduct fueling and static engine test indoors. In secret. Try to repeat the fault. If fault can not be repeated indoors. Then external attack likely. In this case harden against laser attack by shielding rocket and sattelite skin outdoors, by using heat resist curtains . Protect internal electrics by Faraday cage. Command wire also shielded. Static electricity shielding for all components. Launch a few with dummy payload. Once sure, then launch sattelite. If enemy attacking sattelite in flight , skin temp rising local without explanation . Then attack their sattelite.
