Iran’s luck is running out of as the US President openly took a dig at Tehran’s recently failed attempt at the Safir SLV Launch at their Semnan Launch Site One in Iran, something which became a spectacle visible from open space as well.
Trump took to twitter sharing a possibly confidential shot of the launch failure mention that “The US had nothing to do with this failure but then wishing Iran best of luck in determining as to what really happened.”
Breaking all codes of conduct as the person in a power seat in a country, Trump is being seen as setting rather sad precedence by sharing sensitive security information about Iran.
Media reports confirm that the mission, according to Iranian spokesperson, was to put a small telecommunications satellite – Nahid 1 – into orbit. Two previous launch attempts at the start of this year had ended in failure. This one, too, appears now to have ended in disaster.
But it has lead to more embarrassment from Tehran, as Trump has decided to present the full magnitude of the calamity in public view, literally mocking Iran for its inability to carry out successful testing.
Relations between both countries have been growing sour and putting the whole world’s political dynamics into jeopardy.
A New York Times article back in February has already suggested that some 67% of Iran’s orbital launch attempts over the past 11 years have failed. It described this as “an astonishingly high number” compared to the average 5% failure rate for comparable launches worldwide.” So while Iran holds a huge stockpile and can dominate the world in its Uranium enrichment powers, the implementation and deployment of technology on its part may not be its strong point, something Trump is already aware of.
