TEHRAN, Iran – Iran launched large-scale war games in the Persian Gulf oil route of the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, holding the military exercises earlier than usual after the country's leaders expressed new concerns that the U.S. has made a veiled nuclear threat against the Islamic Republic.
Tehran was angered by President Barack Obama's announcement earlier this month of a new U.S. nuclear policy in which he pledged America would not use atomic weapons against nations that do not have them. Iran and North Korea were pointedly excluded from the non-use pledge, and Iranian leaders took that as an implicit threat.
Iran has been holding military maneuvers, dubbed as The Great Prophet, in the strategic waters annually since 2006 to show off its military capabilities.
Iran has declared many advances in its military industries and sciences to demonstrate self-sufficiency despite sanctions and attempts by the U.S. and its allies to isolate the country over its nuclear program.
