Josh Earnest: Gee, Fellas, Iran's Firing of a Nuclear-Capable Long-Range Ballistic Missile Sure Seems to Violate the Terms of the UN Treaty

But he immediately declares this is "not new," which is code for "We will do nothing about this, and in fact won't even talk about it except this one time, when prompted to do so."

Then he insisted that Iran's breaking of a treaty which forbids it from testing long-range ballistic missiles which can carry a nuclear payload has nothing at all to do with Iran's recent agreement to a not-a-treaty regarding nuclear payloads.

Nothin' at all.

There are "strong indications" that Iran violated U.N. Security Council resolutions related to ballistic missiles when it test fired a new missile, the White House said Tuesday .

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said that when it comes to Iran's ballistic missile program, "unfortunately, that's not new."

"We have seen Iran almost serially violate the international community's concerns about their ballistic missile program," Earnest said.

He stressed, however, that those violations are "entirely separate" from the historic nuclear deal reached between Iran and world powers.

Note he says it's "the international community's concerns" being flouted here, not the United States'. Obama always distances himself from his many, many failures. Notice it was not "the international community" who "got" Osama bin Ladin.

But it's "the international community" being humiliated here, not Obama, not the United States.

By the way: These are not "concerns," these are treaty obligations -- just like the obligations Iran has supposedly committed itself to with respect to breaking out its nuclear development.

When they violate those obligations, which they will, Obama will also downgrade those guarantees into mere "concerns."
