Posted on 02/11/2014 9:34:13 AM PST by Nachum
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.
“Imagine the Iranians surrounded by a flotilla of Boston Whalers filled with bikini clad women, guys drinking beer, and American flags flying.”
A great movie scene!!
I missed this. What happened off of Charleston last October?
And just ‘what if’ the ships were loaded with jihadi martyrs and a big nuke that they could detonate near a US naval base or large city?...................
WOMAN’S LIB AND ISLAM
Armed with a single M2 .50 caliber Browning, this much feared naval vessel carries up to 30 rounds of aluminum piercing ammunition. It is the first in an entirely new naval architecture class -- technically, clitoral (not to be confused with littoral) -- being pushed on the Pentagon by the defense minded wussies in the Obama Administration as a cost-saving measure. If you look closely, you can see the heavy-duty seat restraint which prevents the pilot/gunner Kenny Kamakazi Kowalski from leaping from the vessel prior to engaging the enemy. The 12 V trolling motor which lacks a reverse function -- propels this sophisticated craft forward at a top speed of 4 knots. Reverse travel at approximately 35 knots -- is achieved by firing the Browning.
The no-bid contract to build 200 of these fearsome warships was to have been awarded to Obama-Soros-Emanuel Shipbuilding and Stormdoor Manufacturing (formerly General Dynamics) and will be administered by trusted Obama associate and former Chief-of-Staff Rahm Emanuel who commented that, at $12 million each, they are a bargain. They will be constructed exclusively at the companys facility in Kenya with major subcomponent production (rivets and miscellaneous fasteners) at the companys Harlem and Skokie plants. Delivery is expected to begin in 2024 (or as soon as the subcontractors funds are safely in the contractor's Swiss account).
What could possibly go wrong?!
They’re good boys...very responsible.
Can out surveillance tell that the Iranian boats are getting ready to launch a missile before it actually fires? They will be in a great position to launch that EMP.
LIke his mentor Rev. Wright - he would claim: "The chickens have come home to roost" and declare we "had it comin' to us".
In other words: Thanks for the practice you will be giving our attack subs. I guarantee that at ANY moment while the Iranians are in the Atlantic their ship could be sunk.
I heard Bermuda sent a yacht with two sharpshooters out to intercept them.
Anyone care to guess how many US attack submarines are trailing the Iranian “fleet,” with war shots in the tubes?
