Iranís Navy Deploys to Atlantic Ocean
The Diplomat ^ | 22 Jan 2014 | By Zachary Keck

Posted on 01/21/2014 6:30:07 PM PST by BlackVeil

Iran’s Navy began its first deployment to the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday, according to reports in local press.

...The Navy held a ceremony to celebrate the ships’ departure, which was attended by the commander of Iran’s Navy, Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, as well as his deputy, Rear Admiral Seyed Mahmoud Moussavi.

Iran has long discussed deploying naval assets to the Atlantic Ocean. As far back as 2011, Sayyari had threatened to deploy warships off the Atlantic Coast of the United States.

...As The Diplomat previously reported, Iranian media outlets noted in August 2013 reports that Iran’s Navy “also plans to dispatch its 28th fleet to the Atlantic, Pacific or South Indian oceans in the near future.” ...

Remember, Americas to the west, Africa and Europe to the east. Try not to run aground.

“It has also participated extensively in the United Nations’ anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden”
Well, good for them.
Haven’t heard much about the anti-piracy operations.

High time for a mysterious accident at sea.

History will record our failure to deal with Iran early as the cause for the 10s of millions of deaths caused by the Islamic World War.

Jimmy Carter, a man who supposedly knew his Bible (and presumably about some world religions) let the Shah be deposed so an Islamic religious zealot could be put in charge.

And successive presidents did little to stop them.

Now, in a “blunder” of galactic proportions, Barak Obama is diddling along and letting Iran get what they want. Nuclear Weapons.

The utter stupidity of the US policy toward Iran will be fatal.

How do you get a nuke into Washington DC on commercial transportation?

You don’t. You get it there on an Iranian flagged warship and helicopter it in.

Caught your quote marks on “blunder.”

The thing I don’t get is that the Saudis bought obastard’s presidency. But now the Iranians are becoming powerful. Must be missing something, this does not line up. The Saudis and the Iranians hate each other (Sunni vs Shia).

Unless obastard snowed the Saudis? Just don’t know.

Without going into all the obvious steps this is the beginning of the Iranians developing a sort of guerrilla ‘special weapons’ delivery organization. I suspect they are investigating EMP operations as a better giant killer than some small nuclear devices.

It's not a blunder. I suspect you knew that with the "".

This is all deliberate, by design to not just make America look weak --- it's designed to cost lives.

We have lost. Iran now has two warships that they are going to deploy off the coast of America. My mother in law has more gravitas.

That's what I've been thinking for quite some time. A freighter mounted SCUD could deliver the EMP over New York and paralyze the electrical grid system and put every car, motor, computer out of commission permanantly. Too bad other posters believe that Iran is so archaic that they're incapable of doing this.

Replenishment ship (aka helicopter carrier) Kharg.


Light frigate (aka destroyer) Sabalan. -Maybe this time the US Navy can sink her.

The Iran policy seems muddled - if one looks at the long decade from around 2002 till now. Threats, sanctions and bluster alternate with policies - such as the removal of Sadaam Hussein - which leave Iran on higher ground.

The Iranians are patient, through, observant, intelligent and the clerical regime is utterly determined to (1) survive and rule and (2) restore Persia's glory and (3) avenge themselves on those who they see as the sources of their degradation through the Shah's regime (the US, Great Britain and Israel). We underestimate them at our peril.
