Iran is the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism. It meddles and murders around the world. The mullahs run a vile government that is an affront to human rights and decency itself. They murder American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, they blow up Jewish community centers in Latin America, in war they send children to clear minefields and they oversee a country that hangs gays from cranes in town squares and stones women to death.

At the heart of the matter is last year’s deal with world powers, which eased the country’s isolation and removed many economic sanctions in exchange for a curtailing of the Iran’s nuclear program. Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has bitterly criticized the accord, which is rather popular here, and says he would rework it.

Iranian state TV released footage on Tuesday that showed Ali Larijani, the head of the country’s parliament, strolling down a long underground corridor beside a long chain of trucks — each one loaded with a large missile.
