When Barack Obama Talks, Nobody Listens

While Iran raises the stakes, the Administration is going balls out and raising the issue at a meeting at the United-effing-Nations.

So take this, suckers:

The United States plans to raise Iran’s recent missile test in the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday, U.N. diplomats said, after Washington declared that the launch had violated a U.N. ban on ballistic missile tests by Tehran.

Iran said this month it had tested a new precision-guided ballistic missile. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, has said that the medium-range missile was capable of delivering a nuclear weapon.

U.N. diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the United States planned to raise the issue during a meeting of the 15-member Security Council.

Iranian officials and their $150,000,000,000 did not immediately respond to a request to comment for this story.
