They have absolutely no fear of America under Obamas leadership. In a recent TV interview, IRGC Navy Commander Ali Fadavi said: The Americans are aware that if they make even the slightest mistake, their naval vessels will be sunk in the Persian Gulf, the Hormuz Strait, and the Sea of Oman.
He further claimed that Irans vessels would emerge from undersea tunnels, in which no force will be able to harm our naval vessels. In the interview, which aired on IRINN TV on May 10, Fadavi maintained that the crew of U.S. vessels is now obliged to speak Farsi in the Persian Gulf, and indeed do so.
** Iran also admitted recently that the Obama administration told them to keep quiet on their missile tests.
Mighty tough talk for an old fat man.
Iran might be able to make a first strike, or even put up a second wave. But like the Japanese commanders in the Second World War, they will have wakened a sleeping giant.
Retaliation took a few years, but when it came, it was overwhelming. And the Japanese knew the Americans would be relentless once they unleashed their latent power.
Nagasaki and Hiroshima were proof of that.
blah, blah, blah

$10 says that is a “Talking Point” that originated in the White House
Or State Dept.
...They have absolutely no fear of America under Obamas leadership....
Iran, Venezuela, Bolivia, Mexico, Russia, China, North Korea, ISIS, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and many, many more.
Baloney. However, Russian Sunburn/Yakhont anti-ship missiles launched from mobile launchers ashore could turn a Persian Gulf fleet into scrap metal without too much trouble.
Coincidently I was thinking today that if anyone out there in the world felt ambitious about something that America might tend to block NOW is the time to try something...
The problem with the Iranians is that they’ve been so insular since 1979 that they don’t really understand the USA. They project their own worldview onto us and they think our government controls all of us and that we’re all exactly alike in the way we think.
The problem facing the USA these days is that our manufacturing and cultural base is so weak that we would have severe difficulties in changing from a consumer economy to a wartime economy.
Unlike WW2 we’d have treasonous elements actively and openly opposing a full scale war against Iran.
Who knows, maybe we ARE as weak as the Iranians think we are.
Hopefully President Trump can help to CHANGE that. I HOPE so.
And that’s my ‘hope and change’.
I can’t even imagine a nitwit group like the Iranians attacking a U.S. naval vessel.....talk about a suicide mission!!
Even when Iran sinks one of our carriers,this America will do nothing in response, ever. You’re talking about how the old America would respond.
The Iranians want to sink a carrier. It has been many years since Americans have seen one of those great ships bellowing smoke, listing and with sailors going over the side. The American of 2016 is not the American of 1943. Today we would be “too proud to fight.”
Dear Effin' Barry --
FYI: Those who worship the murderous, warmongering, pillaging, slave-capturing, butchering, pedophilic, psychotic rapist Mohammed, have a moral duty to repudiate and condemn him, or go to Hell with him. May he be buggered in Hell by Satan, and may you join him there when your time comes.
Mohammed was Charlie Manson without the humanity, only with more money and less musical talent. Except that Charlie Manson, as far as we know, never raped any children.
And to those who respond by saying "violence has been committed in the name of all religions through the centuries," I ask: "How many people did Jesus kill? How many slaves did Jesus own? How many women did Jesus rape?"
The Five Pillars of Islam:
Not to worry, American military personel know that Obama, Kerry and Clinton have their backs, just ask Chris Stevens.
I cant even imagine a nitwit group like the Iranians attacking a U.S. naval vessel.....talk about a suicide mission!!>>>> they have. recently took 11 prisoners captured small vessel. Blew up marines in Beirut. blew up uss cole.
Not until 1/21/17.
Time for those ragheads to be taken down a peg. Waiting for a real CIC instead of the pussy we have now.
Looks like President Trump must do an “Apology Tour” asking forgiveness for having such an incompetent, doofus as Obama representing the USA on an open stage. If this man is not a doofus, then he is treacherous and should be treated accordingly. We report, you decide!
