Iran's Navy has the ability to deploy its vessels three miles off the US east coast, a high-ranking Iranian Navy commander was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency.

"Our naval forces are so powerful that we have a presence in all the waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New York," Revolutionary Guards Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi was quoted as saying during a speech to students at the University of Yazd earlier this week.

The admiral was speaking on the anniversary the failed 1980 US attempt to rescue American hostages held captive in the US embassy in Tehran.

Fadavi said dominance in the Persian Gulf is "the only tool for the Americans to rule the world," charging that this prompts the US to "confront any other power that threatens their status."

"Iran's Navy has the ability to deploy its vessels three miles off the US east coast, a high-ranking Iranian Navy commander was quoted as saying ..."

So what is the Iranian navy planning to do in NYC? Mug someone in Central Park or shell a tug boat?

As a former sailor, i can confidently say, BRING IT. They will see the most amazing fireworks display of their lives. For about .5 seconds.

The very people that despise all efforts to protect them are the ones at risk.

We should not impose Conservative anti terrorist values on them.

As another guy formerly associated with the Navy I can similarly say bring it. Any Iranian vessels that show up off the coast and make trouble will end up 3 miles off the coast - permanently.

Just refuse to accept their credit card when they pull into the New York marina to fuel up.

I’m sure there would be some of Ahmadinejad’s audience from Columbia U at the waterline ready to help ’em . . .

Not even during Carter’s presidency did Iran threaten America’s east coast.

At risk? Are you serious?

Your post is somewhat...odd, especially for a noob.

Well, not so fast, we need to make sure they're not just on their way to DC first!

That’s okay, Obama has said, “We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever… we absorbed it and we are stronger.”

Bring it....

Sure...they could get within 3 miles of our shores....

...and about 10 seconds after that, their ship would pretty much distintigrate from under them as a couple of Mark 48 ADCAP torpedoes fired from the Los Angeles-class sub that'd been shadowing them for the last hundred miles detonated against their hull.

Pardon me while I enjoy the mental picture I'm envisioning...
