Iranian naval fleets were on their way across the Atlantic Ocean and headed toward the US, the Fars news agency reported on Saturday.
Irans military fleet is approaching the United States maritime borders, and this move has a message, Adm. Afshin Rezayee Haddad of Irans Northern Navy Fleet was quoted as saying.

we’re not getting enough target practice?
This is what happens when a weak, cowardly, stupid community organizer occupies the white house. Our enemies know he has no balls.
If Iranian naval fleets are headed toward the US, who is guarding their shores? I know, it’s a rhetorical question because of the Muslim in the White House won’t do squat, but I had to ask.
Sorry Ayatollah, they must have accidentally strayed into the Bermuda triangle and disappeared. We’ll let you know if we find anything.
Fars first reported on an Iranian Navy fleet of warships making its way across the Atlantic Ocean in January 2014. At the time, they reported that the ships would sail for at least three months.
Didn't the Mayflower make it in less time than that?
iran’s “fleet” is a destroyer and an oiler. forgive me if I don’t wet my pants.
“were not getting enough target practice?”
You are an arrogant american.
We can not shoot down the super sonic cruise missles that Iran may or may not have courtesy of china or russia.
Having a nuke for a warhead would be castastrophic.
the attack of the green park benches?
“The fleet, consisting of a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying supply ship, began its voyage last month from the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas. The ships, carrying some 30 navy academy cadets for training along with their regular crews, are on a three-month mission.”
Unless they’re carrying a nuke on a suicide mission, drug smugglers are a bigger threat.
Considering who ultimately commands our Navy presently...I'd say it's more probable that the Iranians will be pulling liberty in DeBlasios NYC.
POSOTUS is probably hiding under the bed in the Lincoln bedroom all wee-weed up.
Well why not, we’re evacuating the oceans as fast as we can.
Now is the time to see if those 16-inch rifles on the battleship ‘Missouri’ still work.
This is the country who has displayed phony stealth fighters and claims to have put a monkey into orbit. I’ll believe their claims when the ships actually show up somewhere.
>Our enemies know he has no balls.<
Our enemies know that he is on their side.
Yes this. That muslim devil is not stupid. He’s diabolical. Never forget that.
I heard the othe rnight that Obama is no longer considered the most powerful man in the world. That is because everyone knows what a coward he is.
People will stop laughing when the Iranian Navy hooks tactical nukes onto a squadron of drones and flies them into downtown Washington D.C.
Oh please, rediscover your backbone.
I’m waiting for at least 2 FReepers to reassert their position taken yesterday that they (and NK) have every right to take an aggressive posture against us.
Don’t forget the fags lead and roam the ships freely now. It’s not the same navy you and I were in.
Gee, and what would happen to Iran if they did such a thing? Assuming the Coward in Chief was in D.C. and was killed along with the bulk of our Federal Government, what do you think our response would be?
And I mean the response of what is left of our military chain of command.
Would you want to be anywhere near Iran if it came to such a scenario?

|Woo hoo!! And the first 45% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
That gif, sir, rocks!
Is there an implied EMP threat here? Warships, or any ships, that get close to the coast would have an easy time launching a missile up over the USA. Our antimissile response would have to be near instantaneous and 100%. A freighter could launch one or two of those things. A couple of warships would surely have a capacity to launch a bunch of them simultaneously.
America’s once proud foreign policy has gone to sh*t while Kerry plays with himself and Hillary whines that she had nothing to do with Benghazi.
Do they want their entire fleet nuked on low, medium, or high?
People can deny reality all they want, but EMP is a poor man’s game changer. While I think most estimates and predictions are exaggerated the damage would be catastrophic.
We would be wise to stockpile replacements for key electrical infrastructure (just in case).
> If theyre stupid enough to engage a U.S. Navy vessel.....
You forget the recent sissification of our military....
What implied threat are you referring to? Iran's laughable “fleet”?
Perhaps you never considered that The Soviets, and now Russia, along with China, have previously had nuclear tipped missiles in subs patrolling off our coast, and it's almost %100 likely they also have them off of our coasts right this minute. That's the nature of the world we've lived in for over 60 years now in the case of Russia, and more recently China.
I don't hear people constantly pissing and moaning about that reality on this board, yet you have Iran float a couple of ships over to our neighborhood and all of a sudden nuke's will be raining down on our capitol or EMP bursts are imminent!
Honestly, get a grip!
Preparations for an emp launch from a ship near our border.
> If Iranian naval fleets are headed toward the US, who is guarding their shores? I know, its a rhetorical question because of the Muslim in the White House wont do squat, but I had to ask.
Well if they’re going to do any damage to the U.S. Kalifornia would be a good start with the homes of Pelosi, Feinstein, and Boxer, and the moral capitol of the world, San Francisco.
D.C. you say? I think I would send them thank you cards. D.C. has caused a LOT of the problems in the world today (Not America, D.C. and it's filthy politicians).
