Looks like Kerry’s negotiations with Iran are going really well. When the weaker party begins trying to militarily intimidate the other party, it’s usually a sign that a diplomatic breakthrough is at hand.

And by diplomatic breakthrough, I mean absolute collapse. Iran has stepped up its provocations to slapping the US around just to humiliate Obama and Kerry.

A senior Iranian naval commander says his country has sent several warships to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time.

The commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying Saturday that the vessels have already begun the journey to the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa.

“Iran’s military fleet is approaching the United States’ maritime borders, and this move has a message,” Haddad reportedly said, according to Fars, a semi-official Iranian news agency.

Don’t worry, I’m sure Kerry won’t get the message. He never has before.

Haddad says the fleet is approaching U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to U.S. naval deployments near its own coastlines. The U.S. Navy’s 5th fleet is based in nearby Bahrain — across the gulf from Iran.

In 2012, Iran said it aims to put warships in international waters off the U.S. coast within the next few years, and extend its reach as far as Antarctica.

Can’t see any reason why a terrorist state with submarines and nuclear weapons nosing around US borders would be a problem.

    The Americans who voted for this twice as well as the false prophet press corps will bury their heads in the sand and hide in their self generated information bubble to pretend it’s not happening.
    If any such knowledge should ever penetrate their bubble, they will smear it and the messenger as racists. And when an Iranian nuke goes off on our soil, they will blame the Jews.

      There was a good Ayatollah.

      The other Ayatollahs got together and killed him.

        There are no good ayatollahs, period, they are muslims and get it through that wiki mind of yours, where ever islam goes the blood always flows, without exception.

    Where’s the US Navy? Pre-occupied with homosexuals in uniform and 90lb young women in uniform and “outreaching” to Moooslims in uniform.
    This is the price of weakness.

  • Gee

    The Iranian “fleet” consists of a light frigate with World War 2 weaponry and no air defense weapons at all and a tanker. One armed helicopter and the Iranian “fleet” would be sunk.

      You can take a simple broke down freighter and get it close to the US coast and fire a nuke or just float into a port, that is what I am worried about. These two floating targets aren’t a worry, what they carry is something to think about and plan accordingly.

      they could be thinking of a suicide attack on a passing US aircraft carrier, they’ve been talking about it….no doubt they will be tailed by a fast attack submarine just in case….
