Haley displays Iran's military hardware to the press

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley gestures as she speaks in front recovered segments of an Iranian rocket during a press briefing at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling Thursday Dec. 14 2017 in Washington. Haley says

Haley will demonstrate "Iran has deliberately violated its worldwide obligations and has tried and failed to cover up these violations‎", according to a press briefing on the United States mission to the UN's website. The United States and our partners went to great lengths to support the U.N. investigations into Iranian violations by declassifying evidence, so that the world could better be informed of the extent of Iran's maligned activities.

She said the missile "might as well have had "Made in Iran" stickers" on it, adding that Iran was violating United Nations resolutions. "We have made clear that we expect cooperation on the non-nuclear side, just as they are seeking our cooperation on the nuclear side".

Haley said that the missile fired at Riyadh bore the unique markings of an Iranian product: It lacked the stabilizer fins typically present in short-range missiles, she said, but that are absent from those made by Tehran.

Haley gestures as she speaks in front of recovered segments of an Iranian missile.

But the report does not firmly conclude that the missiles came from Iran.

It was also "a hell of a day" for the U.S.to accuse Iran of arming Houthi rebels, some commentators observed, given new reports that American arms sent to Syrian opposition groups "frequently ended up in the hands" of ISIS fighters. The Obama-era deal rolled back Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions in sanctions relief, but did not address Iran's missile-building or support for militant groups in the Middle East. The United Arab Emirates seized the system in late 2016 in the Red Sea.

Haley and the Trump administration have gone beyond Powell and the Bush administration in dragging USA intelligence agencies into their hostility-selling campaign.

Oil recovers on big USA crude stock drawdown
The gravity of the Forties outage was magnified by an explosion one day later at a key hub for Russian gas imports into Europe. This outage may accelerate the pace of shrinking global inventories and give OPEC's efforts an unexpected boost.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will present what she says is "irrefutable evidence" that Iran has violated its global obligations at a press conference on December 14, the U.S. mission at the UN said.

Alireza Miryousefi, spokesman at Iran's mission to the United Nations, said Tehran "categorically" rejects the U.S. claims.

The secretary general said Iran had called Israel's claim of a marked target "a sheer falsehood". It is not a coincidence that the US ambassador held her today's press conference two days after her claim in her interview with CNN, claiming that the common fight against Iran is much more important for the American regional allies than the plights of the Palestinians and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Smoke billows behind a building in the Yemeni capital Sana'a on December 2, 2017, during clashes between supporters of ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh and the Houthis.

In response to Haley's remarks, American analysts also called attention to the direct and protracted role the US government has played, and continues to play, in the ongoing war and Yemen's humanitarian crisis. He is a leading expert on Iran and United States foreign policy, a businessman and president of the International American Council. With US support, a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting the Houthis on behalf of Yemen's internationally recognized government. The exact nature and extent of the assistance are unclear, but what is publicly acknowledged includes USA provision of targeting information and refueling of Saudi warplanes.

In his report, Guterres was reported as saying that the second team of investigators had seen the logo, but that they were still analyzing the information and had come to no conclusion.
