The U.S. Defense Department said on Monday that Iranian warships are allowed to sail into the Atlantic Ocean so long as they understand the responsibilities of cruising so close to the U.S. border.
The Pentagons pronouncement comes just days after Iran announced that warships were approaching the U.S. maritime border in response to Americas naval presence in the Persian Gulf.
Asked to respond to Irans pointed military rhetoric, Pentagon spokesman Bill Speaks told the Washington Free Beacon that it would not be an issue for Iranian ships to enter the Atlantic.
Freedom of the seas applies to all maritime nations, all navies, everywhereso long as they understand the responsibilities, which come with that freedom, Speaks said. So, if they are able to send their ships to the Atlantic, Im sure they wont be surprised to find many, many others already there.

The three Bayliners of the Iranian Navy are not much of a threat to the US Navy.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
roam around the world
I think the only risk to our Navy crews is that of falling overboard when laughing
Scuds with emps on top would bother many of us.
I’m sure obama is just in a total man crush with his new found iranian jihadi friends. And I’m certain that obama has kerry furiously licking the ayatollah’s boots to curry favor.
Of course, if the freighter has a couple of Intermediate-range missles on board with nukes - that's another strory....
“And if you ever need any help slaughtering some Christians just give us a call!” say the 0-bot admirals....
“Of course, if the freighter has a couple of Intermediate-range missles on board with nukes - that’s another strory.... “
My bet is we already know what’s on that boat.
Wouldn’t it be great if a few hundred ordinary Americans. in their private boats, decided to enjoy the freedom of the seas in close proximity to these Iranian ships?
Imagine the Iranians surrounded by a flotilla of Boston Whalers filled with bikini clad women, guys drinking beer, and American flags flying.
Let’s say the Iranians launch nukes at the USA from their freighter...what will Obama do about it? Because, remember, he said that if things got bad that he’d stand with the Muslims, didn’t he?
I would be mildly surprised if they made it north of the Straits of Gibralter, much less to this side of the Atlantic.
This is sad! The president should give the poor Iranians some of OUR warships in the interest of fairness...
Iranian Admiral is an oxymoron!
Don't know... what was Ø trying to accomplish last October off the coast of Charleston?
...folks are laughing now....until one of these scumbags, given free reign to develop nukes, puts a wmd on a speed boat in whatever hole they can find in our coastline.....
even the ATTEMPT to do so will justify the Clown’s immediate implementation of martial law everywhere within 50 miles of a coastline.
you think we’ve got destruction of liberty and fascism now?
you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Shhh, don’t give them any ideas.
