Posted on 01/19/2012 10:28:22 AM PST by Strategy
Underscoring its desire to keep U.S. aircraft carriers from the Persian Gulf, a senior Iranian military commander today announced his possible plan to ambush the American fleet.
Chalk this one up to more bluster, or part of a mounting back and forth rhetoric headed nowhere good, either way - Tehran plans to rely on its subs.
Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army's Self-Sufficiency Jihad, Rear Admiral Farhad Amiri told Fars that Iran has the finest electic diesel submarines in the world, and that while the U.S. has focused on Tehran's "astonishing surface capabilities," it has forgotten about the underwater threat.
Amiri said he plans to slip his fleet of subs onto the Persian Gulf floor and "fire missiles and torpedoes simultaneously."

Based on this threat alone, made openly in the international community, we hsould sink everyone of Iran’s three Kilo subs, and all 3-4 of their indegenous midget-subs at the first opportunity available...tomorrow would not be too soon.
Does he really think we don’t already have subs there to prevent just that possibility?
“Based on this threat alone, made openly in the international community, we hsould sink everyone of Irans three Kilo subs, and all 3-4 of their indegenous midget-subs at the first opportunity available...tomorrow would not be too soon.”
You forget who the POTUS is.
I think that’s why Iran is so brave. Just like the old hostage situation. Come January.....
Did every one in Iran’s senior leadership attend the WWE School of Bluster Talking? Man, it’s like they’ve all bought into the Rex Ryan program.
who WHAT the POTUS is. Fixed it.
“a senior Iranian military commander today announced his possible plan to ambush the American fleet.”
And i could hide outside a Hells Angels favorite bar and shoot one from ambush as he walked out. And then brag to the whole town that it was me. (and i’m guessing my life would get -very- exciting after that!)
Well, I for one find that rather irritating. The U.S. Navy has completely forgotten about submarines. I'm going to write my nearest Admiral right away. "Dear Sir. Please remember the submarines. Thanks. BtD" Some people!
Not to worry. I hear he's got a new naval advisor.
What a shame.
I forgot just how fugly that guy is.
And he has the brains to match.
If the Iranians kill or damage a carrier, the balloon goes up and the gloves come off. A carrier is a strategic asset.
They should be careful what they wish for.
Gee, this sounds serious........maybe we should TALK to them about it.
He has demonstrated that he is capable of this in Libya. 80 percent of those “Nato” aircraft were American. In Libya we threw out an odious and evil murderer that posed NO THREAT TO THE WEST. In Libya we now have odious and evil murders in power (muslim brotherhood) that ARE A THREAT TO THE WEST.
Obama knew this would happen in Libya just as it did in Egypt. There can be only one explanation for this. He hates his own country of which he is President. He wants to harm us.
What do you think Barack Hussein Soetoro 0dinga Dunham 0bama will do?
There won’t be any aggression because obama will do as they tell him.
