Washington Plays Down Iranian Navy's Threats

U.S. defense official casts doubt on Iranian claims that ships were approaching American maritime borders.
The United States has played down Saturday’s reports that Iran was sending warships to its maritime borders.

A U.S. defense official, speaking to the Reuters news agency on condition of anonymity, cast doubt on any claims that the Iranian ships were approaching U.S. maritime borders.

That same official added, however, that "ships are free to operate in international waters."

Earlier, the semiofficial Iranian Fars news agency quoted the Commander of Iran's Northern Navy Fleet Admiral as having claimed that “the Iranian Army's naval fleets have already started their voyage towards the Atlantic Ocean via the waters near South Africa.”

"Iran's military fleet is approaching the United States' maritime borders, and this move has a message," he claimed.

The report could not be independently verified, but it is not the first time that Iran has threatened the United States militarily.

In fact, earlier Saturday, Iran's Revolutionary Guards threatened that its drones and missiles could hit American warships in the Persian Gulf.

Iran has previously threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic waterway leading to the Persian Gulf, in response to American military presence there.

Also on Saturday, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, verbally attacked the United States, saying Washington had a "controlling and meddlesome" attitude towards the Islamic Republic.

Azriel; Years ago before Iran was even a threat to the United States, I discussed an attack by Iran, or Radical Islam,and that a nuclear tipped missile could be fired from a freighter, or now we see today a Iranian destroyer,launched 400 mile away into the stratosphere above the U.S, called an EMP, a warhead not designed for hitting land targets but instead would leave buildings, and people intact, but destroy any electronic device; computers, electrical grids, cars, etc., and send the U.S back to the 1800's.It would take years to recover, and most of the United States military is dependent upon electronics to function, leaving the U.S. vulnerable to a 2nd. strike.

Iran is now capable of doing this, thanks to the Obama administration. Iran is not constrained as in the cold war between the U.S. and Russia, called M.A.D. [Mutually assured destruction]. Iran is not afraid of being wiped from the face of the earth, because in doing so, would bring their Mahdi to destroy all Zionist enemies of Islam. Dying for JHad is considered securing their place of glory in their heaven. Iran is highly motivated to bring about their Mahdi, by war as ordered by the Koran, and Iran has repeatedly threatened Israel, and the United states. Never before has the world seen a more dangerous enemy.
It's not a matter of if, but when.
