Danger for Israel ?

(Reuters) - Iran has sent submarines to the Red Sea, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Tuesday, citing an unidentified source, in a move that could anger Israel.

"Iranian military submarines entered the Red Sea waters with the goal of collecting information and identifying other countries' combat vessels," Fars said.

It did not specify the number or type of vessels involved but said they were sailing alongside warships of the Navy's 14th fleet.

State-run Press TV said in May the 14th fleet, comprised of two vessels, the Bandar Abbas warship and Shahid Naqdi destroyer, had been sent to combat piracy in the Gulf of Aden.

"The fleet entered the Gulf of Aden region in May and has now entered the Red Sea in the continuation of its mission," Fars said.

Two Iranian warships passed through the Suez Canal in February, the first such move since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, en route to Syria. Tehran said the mission was one of "peace and friendship" but Israel called it a "provocation."

Iran announced last August it had expanded its fleet of domestically built 120-tonne Ghadir-class submarines to 11 which it said would be used to patrol the Gulf and the Sea of Oman.

It has deployed warships further afield, as far as the Red Sea, to combat Somali pirates but has not previously said it sent submarines to those waters.

Really?
If this is true, then the subs can be a launching point for missiles against Israel.

Or for that matter, if they can get close enough to the US coasts, then a launching platform as well.

Great news Iran. Good luck securing the seas from those Somali pirates.

What is Israel doing to fight off the pirates and to provide security?

Oh that's right. NOTHING

Absolutely ridiculous.

Iran has not attacked Israel or the United States.

Iran has no weapons capable of seriously threatening Israel or the United States,
Iran does not have nuclear capability and has no delivery system.

Ignorant fear mongering, nothing more.

It's just a matter of time before someone makes a mistake and it spirals out of control. Too much is happening over there with the uprisings,border clashes and now this.

Ok, and you know that Iran has no bad intent because????????

Just because you don't think that they will, does not mean that they wont.
If they have subs, more then likely Russian hardware, then it is safe to say that those subs are fitted with the armament that the subs were set up for.

And no one has said that Iran has attacked. You sure are quick to whip out the "ignorant" and "fear mongering" cards.
Most humane responses are as such due to hiding something or feeling threatened.

You are way out of line.
What could I have to hide or be threatened by ?

You are fear mongering in an attempt to make Iran into a boogeyman.
Seems like you are the one with an agenda.

I will reiterate;

Iran has attacked no one in 300 years.
Iran has no nuclear capability and no delivery system.
Iran has the right to deploy it's ships anywhere in international waters.

Now, feel free to show your agenda by trying to refute those facts.

Such hostility. My what a web we weave on the internet.


Iran has not attacked anyone in 300 years? Ok, directly no. Indirectly, you could not be more wrong.
The usage of guerrilla tactics and fighters are well documented from Iran. Fighting by proxy is still fighting.
Sorry, but you get a great big

I did not realize Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had an account here on ATS.



Further more, let me say this, and I hope you can hear me as you are very high up on your horse there.

I never said Iran was going to. I said that it looks like they have the ability to do so.
You really need to learn how to read before infecting ATS with your bitter crap.
