Based on this threat alone, made openly in the international community, we hsould sink everyone of Iran’s three Kilo subs, and all 3-4 of their indegenous midget-subs at the first opportunity available...tomorrow would not be too soon.

Does he really think we don’t already have subs there to prevent just that possibility?

Did every one in Iran’s senior leadership attend the WWE School of Bluster Talking? Man, it’s like they’ve all bought into the Rex Ryan program.

“a senior Iranian military commander today announced his possible plan to ambush the American fleet.”

And i could hide outside a Hells Angels favorite bar and shoot one from ambush as he walked out. And then brag to the whole town that it was me. (and i’m guessing my life would get -very- exciting after that!)

...and while the U.S. has focused on Tehran's "astonishing surface capabilities," it has forgotten about the underwater threat.

Well, I for one find that rather irritating. The U.S. Navy has completely forgotten about submarines. I'm going to write my nearest Admiral right away. "Dear Sir. Please remember the submarines. Thanks. BtD" Some people!

If the Iranians kill or damage a carrier, the balloon goes up and the gloves come off. A carrier is a strategic asset.

They should be careful what they wish for.

There won’t be any aggression because obama will do as they tell him.

Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army's Self-Sufficiency Jihad, Rear Admiral Farhad Amiri told Fars that Iran has the finest electic diesel submarines in the world, and that while the U.S. has focused on Tehran's "astonishing surface capabilities," it has forgotten about the underwater threat.

Amiri said he plans to slip his fleet of subs onto the Persian Gulf floor and "fire missiles and torpedoes simultaneously."

We can only be dead certain sure about one thing with the Obamination at the helm and the MSM reporting, if we lose two or three carriers in the Gulf to Iran... it will all be Bush's fault!

announced his possible plan to ambush the American fleet.

If it's announced it's no longer an ambush.

What a maroon.

Would they have made these threats when Bush was in office?

Hey there Rear Admiral Farhad Amiri don’t you remember the famous “awaken a sleeping giant” quote a certain naval officer made 70 years ago? Same thing holds true today. Fire a torpedo and prepare yourself to meet 72 virgins (note that nobody said they’re going to be Playboy knockouts - it could be ugly!).

Dear God, I pray that Iran torpedoes a US carrier. Because then even Oboingo could not ignore Iran anymore. And it might encourage some GOP nominee to get a pair and say if I’m elected, and Iran attacks us, there will be radioactive glass in Tehran.

Iran is going to do it! They are crazy enough and are willing to accept American retaliation. With the current administration's inability to handle Iran any attack in response to the sinking of a carrier would inflict minimum damage.

Of more concern will be the response by the American public? We have not lost a great ship since WWII.

The media would have a field day; interviewing Iranian officials(treason laws no longer apply; joyful photos depicting American casualties; pictures of the great ship with sailors abandoning it by ropes; the great ship heeling over. An American defeat will cause the media creatures to have multiple orgasms.

Lastly, this administration would attempt to rally a degenerate American public around "The Divine One." They would succeed and crush any Republic possibility of gaining the White House.
