  • Iran Should Pay a Price for Its Ballistic Missile Tests – Editorial
    Iran has repeatedly tested ballistic missiles that could be used for carrying nuclear warheads, even though a UN Security Council resolution approved in tandem with the nuclear accord explicitly called on Iran not to engage in such activity. Tehran’s behavior comes as no surprise to the many observers who predicted the deal would not alter its hostility to the West or its defiance of international norms.
    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and ranking Democrat Ben Cardin (Md.) are discussing a response that would mandate sanctions against all Iranian entities, including financial institutions, connected to the missile program and renew the broader Iran Sanctions Act. That would allow the nuclear accord to go forward, while sending Iran the message that its infractions will be costly. (Washington Post)
