    Iranian Navy Plans to Send Ships Near U.S. Waters

    The Iranian navy plans to move naval vessels out of the Persian Gulf and into the Atlantic Ocean, "near maritime borders of the United States," the Tehran Times reported Tuesday.

    According to the English-language paper based in Tehran, the announcement came from a top Iranian naval officer on Tuesday.

    “As the global arrogance (forces of imperialism) have a (military) presence near our sea borders, we also plan to have a strong presence near the U.S. sea borders with the help of the soldiers who are loyal to the vali-e faqih (supreme jurisprudent),” said Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, as quoted and paraphrased by the Tehran Times.

    "We've been pushing freedom of the seas for years and the Iranian navy can go wherever it wants," said Pentagon Spokesman Capt. John Kirby.
    At least, if they do anything stupid, our navy won't have to travel far to kick their tail.

      It's a long distance to paddle.
      I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

        It'll just make it easier on our ships to reload. Why'd I say that? We wouldn't have to reload because we would hit them first shot. It'll also save us money on target ships.

                Iranians near water? Just drop Irish Spring and Dial soap bars. They'll scatter like fallen leaves in a Kansas windstorm!

                  OMG this thread had me laughing in tears. And yep, nothing to worry about. They're such idiots to think anyone cares...

                  Our best weapon would be to ignore them.

                    The U.S. Coast Guard could OUTGUN THEM in a head to head using some of their 50 yr old MOTHBALLED ships..... this is a non story...

                    the "reality" is that the U.S.C.G will simply end up TOWING the "Iranian Navy" into port when their crap breaks down at sea ( can hear the radio call now, " help! we hate you ,but PLEASE, coast Guard, our "war" ship is sinking, we have NO food left, and we've run out of drinking water!!! We HATE you, but for the LOVE OF ALLAH, DON'T LET US DROWN!!!"

                        Which is OK, a while back they started charging a towing fee. Too many fishing ships fished until the tanks were dry and had Uncle Sam pay for the return trip.

                            The Iranian Navy is no threat to the U.S. They can attempt to intimidate but with their scarce resources and force strength, there's absolutely nothing they could do to the US.
