Iran says could deploy navy near U.S. coast: Report


au.news.yahoo.com

Iran raised the prospect on Tuesday of sending military ships close to the United States' Atlantic coast, in what would be a major escalation of tensions between the long-standing adversaries.

"Like the arrogant powers that are present near our marine borders, we will also have a powerful presence close to American marine borders," the head of the Navy, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said, according to the official IRNA news agency.

Speaking at a ceremony marking the 31st anniversary of the start of the 1980-1988 war with Iraq, Sayyari gave no details of when such a deployment could

I've been saying for a long time now that China, Russia, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, the rest of the middle East and even parts of South America and Africa are working together loosely in some cases and tightly in others to overthrow the US as the world superpower, depose it's allies and take control of the world.

I've warned this for at least ten years, only the last year or so on this site off the cuff.

Just wanted to share some info, and I hope the picture is starting to become clear. The history books will say we were at war for the last six years, World War, 3.

Furthermore, it has long been my belief that Iran is a front and distraction for the opposition. While Syria has a clandestine nuke program with ICBM's being shipped in from Russia, Iran has taken most of the heat. Now it has become the centerpiece of tensions between the US and the middle east, with all the real players operating incognito. Is it so hard to believe that a religion with martyr parishioners would not martyr a country to attain a goal? It's not like Libya, Egypt and other fallen nations didn't immediately assume Sharia law, or attempt it. Not only that, they are at best tolerating any puppet rulers emplaced by the west like Egypt.

Whatever the geopolitical implications may be, I see this as Iran challenging the US hypocrisy. There are literally dozens of US bases surrounding Iran's borders, so why should this be seen as a provocation? I would be impressed if American officials actually allowed this without some anti-Iran media sh!storm in its wake.

Oh yes, please! Please send your navy off our coasts. I think it would be hysterical watching them try and supply their forces. We can only hope they do this.

I would love to see this ... nothing better than a good laurf to start the day.

My first thought.....yeah, whatever.

I seriously doubt Irans navy has anything over us. Come on, cross that 12 mile line and Iran will be minus a ship or two. I dare them, no, I double dog dare them.

More propaganda and fear mongering, no worries.

Ever since the decline of the Soviet Union and the bullying of the US, I always wondered why there was no balance of power in the world.

I'm genuinely glad that more nations step up their game.

On a next note OP. The US monitoring sovereign countries oceans away = No WW3?
But countries who are monitored, sends an equal outside of the US = WW3?

Why is it always OK for the bullies to beat up the kids, but not the kids to retaliate back with the same medicine?

Can you say "Attack Submarines"? Can you say B-52s packing Harpoons? I mean there is freedom of the seas, let them come, but, if they get belligerant, they will have a short but exciting life.

The Cuban immigrants would overrun those Iranian boats long before the US Navy was even necessary! LOL! The Cubans get to the US on modified surfboards, old pallets, and 57 Chevy Pickups!! Let Iran put a fancy nice boat out along the US coast, and let those Pirates of the Caribbean plunder at will.

Iran would not dare to do this, but I applaud them for having the cahones to at least mention it. The US does bully its way into places by putting a carrier group within striking distance, and it should be criticized and brought to the attention of the world.

Iran for cahones.

Not in a million years will they actually follow through with it.

I didn't even know that Iran has something like a Navy but i agree, they try this and their ships get obliterated in 5 minutes by the US Navy.
I don't know how intelligent it is, for Iran to always speak out threats and trying to compete with the Big Boys. One of these days. because of all their hate mongering and challenging threats, they will get their asses kicked so badly, they will cry for decades about it

The winners write the history books, not the honest.

People are picking sides, paradigms are shifting, and there is a power vaccum forming. I'm just letting you know that this will be the sixth year of WW3 when everything is said and done, not the first. Cyber Warfare, Economic Warfare, and possibly Weather Warfare are to be part of the all encompassing "War".

I feel that what they're saying is that there are still international waters in which one's Navy could sail to off of our coasts just as our Navy Vessels do off of their coasts on a daily basis.

And not necessarily to start a conflict... but to merely make a statement on how we are policing the world and they legally have the same rights to do it as well.

Sounds fair but I don't know how much damage they plan on doing without any nukes maybe they can borrow a couple from North Korea.

Yes I go with your assumption that Iran is a front for the real US adversaries, Russia and China. Maybe if USA gave up on encircling Russia by taking control of its sphere of influence - ex Soviet Republics like Georgia, Baltics, Ukraine, the stans, while doing the same with China with Taiwan, South Korea, Japan bases etc, then maybe these powers would stop reacting in the only way they really can by supplying the enemies of the USA.

USA should have been a bit fairer with Russias sphere of influence following 1991 instead of trying to play checkmate.

If Iran is going to deploy navy near US coast then they are totally mad (and must understand they will get Iraqified /Afghanistunned at some point in the near future) or going to visit friendly ports in Venezeula and Cuba. Who gets to take the mick with the USA in the long run and gets away with it? Just madness if it's true

Whether one agrees or not, show of force is a very good deterrent. I have seen several times when an aircraft carrier pulls up on the scene how the other bad guys take off like cockroaches when the light is turned on. It is always not necessary to fire a shot, just the presence of an aircraft carrier alone is all that it takes sometimes.

Our ships tend to carry a lot of intimidation with them.

At times, Green Peace gets a little brave and will want to approach a carrier, but then we just implement Operation Water Fall and all is well. Operation Waterfall is when the sailors will turn on the firehouses and start filling their smoke stacks with water. That seems to put them out of commission.
