IRAN NOT SO FAR AWAY: Iranian Warship Sailing to US Borders to ‘Send a Message’

shutterstock_155771645Iranian warships dispatched to the Atlantic Ocean will travel close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time in a bid to send ‘a message’ to the White House.

A destroyer and helicopter-carrying supply shipbegan their voyage last month from the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas and are on a three-month mission.

The voyage is intended to counter the U.S. naval presence in the Persian Gulf, as the Islamic Republic continues to assert its power across the Middle East and beyond.

‘Iran’s military fleet is approaching the United States’ maritime borders, and this move has a message,’  Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Haddad said the vessels have already  entered the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa, carrying about 30 navy academy cadets for training along with their regular crews.

Iran had first warned America of its  plans to deploy its naval forces along U.S. marine borders ‘in the next  few years’ in September 2012.

    Sending that garbage scow to the bottom would send a message also, but it’s not worth the effort to sink it. What a floating chunk of feces.

  • Eaglestrike

    If we had a real President instead of the poser in the White House we would blow them out of the water in response to their message.

    • Snoopy

      As long as they are in “International Waters”, we can’t touch them or WE would be seen as starting the war! But if they enter OUR waters, I agree – Kinda like the “castle Law” here at home, huh?

      • OzzWorx

        Send a signal to their GPS to make them off course.

  • yennikcm

    Maybe Odonkey is going to “give” them what they are seeking….suggest he also give Valerie Jarrett back to them also..

    • Tpatriot

      Hell, they’ll probably be invited to the White House for a prayer session!

    the pen and a phone… is Obama holding America hostage … if he can not get him way with the pen did he use the phone to call for his back up help?

  • Ulfric Thorsson

    If they enter US waters,they should be blown to hell. No warning,just send them to Davy Jones Locker

    • H8theleft

      @Ulfric Thorsson
      Completely agree. But, won’t happen. Not now and not for a few more years. Not with president girly girl panty waste in office. She / it will probably award the Iranian admiral a bronze star for showing spunk.

      • francoamerian

        Knowing how Obama is, he will probably send a boatload of coffee and doughnuts to the Iranian ship as a gesture of our cowardice, at least HIS cowardice.

    • marcdepiolenc

      Merely entering US waters is not an act of war. Read up on the “right of peaceful passage” and the Gulf of Sidra incident, where the US asserted that right…against Libya.

      • Ulfric Thorsson

        In case you ain’t noticed,those little sheet heads ain’t our friends

        • marcdepiolenc

          True, but irrelevant. Under international law everybody has the right of peaceful passage. If the Iranians are smart they will try to trigger an incident in which the US government will violate, in its own backyard, the very same right that it asserted in Iran’s backyard years ago. A propaganda coup for the ayatollahs.

    • lorlan4

      I agree, but you know, I do not believe we have a leader, military or civilian, from the President on down, to take the steps necessary to protect this country. We have completely lost all respect. of the remainder of the world.

      • Ulfric Thorsson

        I agree,that’s why I think we need to take page from Robert Heinlein’s book “Star-ship Troopers” and only veterans can hold office

        • lorlan4

          T agree , even if, he/she was only a private!

          • Michael Rayford Powell

            If and I mean a huge if…IF our SO CALLED Commander in Chief were even a true red white and blue US Born Citizen…of which he isn’t, that would be sweet, maybe and just a huge MAYBE, he would grow a pair and defend this Republic instead of make a mockery of it! Lost cause and an embarrassment to this entire country, and has created a huge lack of fear or respect for it, and all the lives lost that it has taken to defend the United States of America! Freedom isn’t free, it is paid for with the price of lives, and huge sums of money, all of which he has purposely caused to yield it into a joke! Doesn’t deserve to finish out his term, yet the rest of the spineless politicians with huge lack of integrity allows him to push his infernal weight!

          • lorlan4

            I truly believe he (Obama) has the Admiral’s and General’s in his pocket. They are mostly political Officers and, I believe, would willingly fire on the populace, if ask to by Obama. Sad, is’nt it?

          • tinkerunique

            The senior/ranking officers ( that disagreed with POTUS) have been removed by 0′bummer.

          • danstewart

            That’s why they’re still in the military. Those who said they would not fire on US civilians were drummed out.

          • Outlawit .

            Our weapons fire were we point them. That would require a moral decision to shoot the higher rank. Let the Sargent’s command.

        • tinkerunique

          We HAD several good vets as POTUS = one of the best was Kennedy – a true Navy combat hero. (PT-109 ) AND he was a known NRA supporter.

          • John Hand

            !963, Kennedy was still the president, for a while. Then came 1964, the Beatles, long hair, longer hair, psychedelic drugs, anti-war, and the American youth followed. Then the hippy youth journalism students graduated to being in charge of CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, NPR, and the country was doomed.

        • JOHN T. FOX

          THE MOVIE WAS BETTER.

          UH, JOHN KERRY, MCCAIN AND AND SEVERAL OTHERS ARE VETS TOO. WE NEED HUNTERS AND GUN OWNERS TO SERVE! NOT ALL CITIZENS SERVE IN THE MILITARY. NOR DO ALL THAT SERVE IN THE MILITARY ACT AS CITIZENS!

          • Ulfric Thorsson

            Have you even READ the book?! The movie was okay,but it was VERY loosely based on the novel and compared to the novel,the movie is CRAP

          • JOHN T. FOX

            NO. I DO KNOW THAT THAT MOVIE WAS TO THAT GENERATION OF ACTORS WHAT STRIPES WAS TO THAT GENERATION. 7 OR 8 STARS CAME OUT OF THAT MOVIE. AT LEAST 3 CAME OUT OF STARSHIP TROOPERS.

      • Raven Man

        BO has removed all our leaders and appointed Muslims and Islam appointment’s to help him destroy this country.

  • foxxybey

    One foot over the line and send them to the bottom.

    • H8theleft

      One foot over line and Ubama will just draw another line.

      • foxxybey

        Sad to say your probably right, he sure doesn’t want to step on his Islamist friends toes. God Bless:

      • cochise1

        I am willing to bet that they will actually encroach into our waters. It will be a good PR coup for them since they know our President will not do what he should. Just another way to show ‘The Great Satan’s’ weakness.

  • doug63

    we probably gave the ships to them. probably just going to Newport RI to the war college.

  • Chicago Sam

    The Navy has a word for such vessels: TARGETS.
    I wonder what word Obama uses.

    • http://pistolpackingsanta.com/Home.html Santa Chuck

      Obozo would probably refer to them as “our misunderstood friends in the middle east. “

    • tinkerunique

      There may also be an American sub following along………????

  • m444ss

    Perhaps good for propaganda to their fellow jihadists since they won’t broadcast actual outcomes, but otherwise quite laughable.

  • higgy01

    Comparing our fleet with Iran’s is like comparing superliners with row boats. If they want to get close we can do one of two things. Either sink them or invite them into port. Inviting them to dock might truly confuse them.

  • marineh2ominer

    Please double check all your electronics for Washington DC co-ordinates , and good luck Iranian Navy !!!

    • brucethompson22

      They won’t do that,Wash. is the reason they’re here.Do you think those wussies won’t say squat. They look at Obama as a weaker Charter,you know what they did when he was in office.

      • gibbygoo56

        He is working with them to destroy us. EVIL!

  • BeriBeri99

    So . . . What’s the message . . . ? ? ?
    Is it Hey brother we’ve got your back?

    • Sodbust

      Thats good,, real good.. Sodbust

  • Doc

    Two rednecks in a rowboat could sink that thing.

    • Don’t Even Try It!

      Looks pretty ‘thin skined’ don’t it!

    • Frank J. Austin

      And there, folks, is the answer ! Rednecks acting on their own would not implicate the US. QUICK ! Someone call Larry the Cable Guy !

  • Mr Ed

    Invite them, I think not. Blow them out of the water sending them a message that this is what happens when you cross the line!

  • Sharpshooter

    I wonder if they are crossing another “red line in the sand” that Obama has drawn so many times before?

    • Don’t Even Try It!

      The “Red Line” would be in the water from Iranian blood! Can you say ‘Shark Bait’?

  • combatvet52

    If Obozo steps out of the way we have some pretty big gun barrels for the Iranians to look into.

    • jaxtom

      Why move obozo? Fire!!!!

      • combatvet52

        Sorry Jax i screwed up he could be the first target.

  • combatvet52

    I wonder if Obozo has his diapers on it could get very messy.

    • lfhpueblo

      I personally think he might be inviting them to continue strutting their stuff, since they’ve been doing it for a while now, it’s just people are just now starting to find out about it via the media, before it was happening, just not widely known. The Iranians are saying basically by these maneuvers side with Israel and we’ll shoot a nuke at you. Then the president can say something like I couldn’t side with Israel for the safety of our country because they were right there and could have nuked us, I did it for you. I think they’ll be Obama’s excuse for not doing the right thing. I think it is all staged to a point and that Obama knows about the staging and is quite possibly in on the staging of all this.

      • jaxtom

        It is certainly close enough for them to launch one of their toys at us.

      • Don’t Even Try It!

        All I can say is, if Iran decides to fire anything at us from the Atlantic, aim for DC!

  • georgethorvat

    Oh no! Oh no! Oh no! We’re doomed, we’re doomed’ we’re doomed! Woe is us, woe is us, woe is us! Whatever will become of us now that the mighty Iranian fleet is at our very doorstep? Oh poop!

    • ndb

      You underestimate the unknown.

      • gibbygoo56

        yes an EMP could cripple us. The US spends so much money on restoring mosques around the world and giving arms to the rebels who happen to be killing our troops and we can’t get our electrical grid hardened. This has been a concern for years and nothing has been done. Obama is inviting this to our shores.

    • Beachtennisguy

    If we had a real president like Reagan, this wouldn’t be an issue. He would give it the same treatment that he gave to the terrorist traning camps in Libia that were threatening U.S. interest during the 80s.

    • JOHN T. FOX

      REAGAN WAS AN ACTOR THAT HAD ALZHEIMERS AND INSTITUTED DEFICIT SPENDING. NOT MY IDEA OF A GOD PRESIDENT! THE TWO THAT FOLLOWED WERE EVEN WORSE!

      • Tpatriot

          UNLIKE YOU I LIVED THROUGH THIS TIME. THE FACTS ALSO SUPPORT THIS SELF-EVIDENT TRUTH!

          • anitamanninen1

            UNLIKE YOU! I did live through it and after having to struggle with Carter in office, raising interest rates to ridiculous amounts, gas lines and our people held for a year with his ineffectiveness in getting them released. Reagan comes in, lowers taxes, gets interest rates lowered, the economy kicks back in, he kicks Libya’s butt and our hostages are released as soon as he was sworn in office. Stop your party line posturing as most of on this site know that you are a moron.

          • JOHN T. FOX

            I WAS 13 WHEN REAGAN TOOK OFFICE. I REMEMBER THE RECESSION FROM 1981 THROUGH AND INTO 1984. MY DAD DIDN’T WORK A DAY IN 1983. THE HOSTAGE SITUATION RESOLVED ITSELF AFTER 444 DAYS AND REAGAN DID NOTHING! UNDER CARTER MY SAVINGS ACCT WAS MAKING MONEY. UNDER REAGAN IT DIDN’T PAY TO PUT MONEY INTO A SAVINGS ACCT! LIBYA, LETS SEE DID WE INVADE THEM? NO! DID WE REMOVE KADALFI FROM OFFICE? NO! IRAN TOOK THE HOSTAGES NOT LIBYA. I’M A CONSERVATIVE INDEPENDENT. I NEVER VOTE FOR DEMOCRATES AND I VOTED FOR PEROT TWICE, BOB BARR ONCE AND THE LAST TIME I JUST DON’T REMEMBER. IT SURES HELL WASN’T OSOMA OBAMA! YOU SHOULD HAVE A MAN READ YOU FIRST TIMOTHY CHAP 2 VS 9-15 AND REMAIN IN YOUR PLACE!

        • JOHN T. FOX

          THE ONLY REASON THAT HISTORY TREATS REAGAN AS BEING “GOOD” WAS BECAUSE NIXON, FORD AND CARTER WERE HORRIBLE! THE COUNTRY WAS DEMORALIZED AND WANTED TO FEEL BETTER. THE REMOVAL OF GREAT NEGATIVES WAS PERCEIVED TO BE A POSITIVE. IN REALITY THE ONLY REAL CHANGE DURING REAGANS FIRST TERM ECONOMICALY SPEAKING WAS THAT MY DAD WENT FROM EARNING THE MOST THAT HE EVER DID IN A YEAR, UNDER CARTER. TO NOT WORKING A SINGLE DAY FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR UNDER REAGAN! CARTER AND REAGAN WERE BOTH DISASTERS OVERSEAS. CARTER IN IRAN AND REAGAN IN SOUTH AMERICA.

          • Steve Harmon

            USSR?

          • metro143

            Some of your points about Reagan are true, He did increase the deficit spending. However, Under the Carter years, The US Military was so stripped down to nothing, We couldn’t organize a military strike capable of defending anything. Reagan did increase spending on the military to bolster the nations depleted military. He even started the so called ” star wars program” that was little more than a wasted spending program. However, It has given our military a large boost in technology and accuracy in many of todays weapons. He did increase the size of the military that caused the USSR to try and keep up with us in military spending. That increased military spending along with a recession caused them to crumble. So in a way Reagan ended the cold war by bankrupting the USSR.

          • metro143

            The main thing that Reagan brought to us as a Nation was our national pride. We began to believe in ourselves as Americans. We were down because of Viet Nam, Watergate, The Iran hostages, The disastrous Carter years. The economy was like it is today. No jobs. We had high interest rates. We were going nowhere. Reagan did bring us positive hope again. He also got little recognition for trying to make government more efficient. I think that was one of his greatest accomplishments. However today with Obama and the rest of our out of control government. We have lost all accountability on government spending. Each government department is spending like there’s no tomorrow. We really need someone like Reagan today.

      • ^Kings_kid^

        Regan fixed the mess that Jimmy carter made, and if he were alive today he could fix the mess obama made.

        • tr60

          Fixed what mess? He tripled the deficit, slashed the hell out of domestic programs, like student aid, which really screwed me. The Iranians were about to release the hostages when Reagan operatives made them a better offer. We shot up Libya, big deal, Communism fell in on itself and he was standing around. Nicaragua will spend the next century trying to recover. No, Reagan was far, far less than you imagine.

          • jaxtom

            He spent the money to build up our military and bankrupt the USSR trying to keep up.

          • tr60

            Do you know how idiotic that sounds? He still squandered the money, and tripled the debt, and the Soviet Union fell in on itself.

          • bill

            “Gorbachev, tear down this wall”.. Of course you have a very narrow perspective on things… Perhaps you shouldn’t have attended school if that’s the result of your education.

          • tr60

            I attended school and had a professor predicting in 1980 that the Soviet Union would fall in on itself, which is exactly what it did. Reagan was just standing around, handy, when it happened.

          • ^Kings_kid^

            you can thank carter for that, Regan fixed the deficit, before Reagan came in the interest rates were double digit, so what world are you in ? let me guess you are an obama supporter right? get your head out of the sand before its too late.

          • tr60

            Yeah, they were double digit when he came in, and then got worse, reaching 18.45 i 1981
            Oh! They were double digit when he went out.

          Does anybody here remember BEFORE Nixon ?? There were a couple good MILITARY VETERANS before him. One of the best was JFK (PT-109), and before him was Eisenhour ( WWll )

      • http://pistolpackingsanta.com/Home.html Santa Chuck

        I will agree that Reagan had been an actor before entering political service. He also served in our country’s military. So, being an actor wasn’t all that he did before entering politics. At least he actually did something before entering politics. As opposed to going to college on some rich Muslim prince’s dime and being a “community organizer,” which is a fancy way of saying someone who conversed banks into loaning money to people who were destined to default on those loans. .

        And yes, he was in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s toward the end of his second term as president. He still demonstrated better judgment even then than the idiot in the White House right now.

      • http://pistolpackingsanta.com/Home.html Santa Chuck

        In a way, I have to agree with you. Ronald Reagan was better than “THE TWO THAT FOLLOWED.” As.a matter of fact, he was better than anyone who followed him.

        BTW I didn’t vote for George Bush Senior either. And if he had of finished the job that was ninety five percent done with Saddam, we would have never had to go back when he resumed his assaults on our close ally Kuwait.

        And as far as Bill Clinton goes, I really have to agree with you. He’s a total loser. Let’s not forget that after Osama Bin Laden’s first failed attempt to destroy the twin towers, and the CIA literally had him in their crosshairs, bill and Hillary decided to give him a free pass and ordered them to “Stand down.” Of course, Bill was too busy to worry about Bin Laden because he was too preoccupied with Monica Lewinsky and Hillary has always been a Muslim sympathizer. She even chose a Muslim Brotherhood member to be her personal assistant.

    The Bermuda Triangle needs to take them now…. couple of EMP’s would screw the pooch.

  • Eagles_76

    Spare Me! Just what message are they going to send besides they have a new toy. It’s one thing to own one but it’s an entirely different thing to know how to use it. These stupid FK’n camel jockeys couldn’t fight a war so how in the hell are they going to properly operate a sophisticated ship like that. When they have to operate the weapons by the time they read the instructions they’ll be at the bottom of the ocean. Lots of luck a-holes. Oh I forgot Obama’s on their side so he’ll probably give the Navy strict orders NOT to attack their ship. I Say SINK the A$$HOLES.

  • Homer

    Send them a msg……. Right thru the hull`s!

  • James Riley

    Obama just may give them a VIP Vacation on U>S>soil or if they enter Illegally a free Subject-ship or is it Citizenship?

  • TexasJester

    Send a carrier fleet to surround it, and escort these “ships” to port if they enter American waters. If they don’t enter, keep them surrounded — and if they threaten American ships, SINK THEM with EXTREME prejudice!!

  • NObama2012

    Message received. Next time we just cruise missile the SOB before it can drop the mooring lines to leave their home port.

    • TexasJester

      Nah… Too much money. Just tell a bunch of rednecks that they’re on their way to destroy the Daytona track before (or during) the 500, and they hate Dale Earnhardt Sr, and they want to destroy the Budweiser plant in St. Louis.. You’ll have a bunch of them show up with weapons the military hasn’t seen before, and that ship would be toast!! Heck, Iran wouldn’t be standing when they got through!

      Note: before anyone gets bent about my comment, I am a NASCAR fan, a Sr fan and a Jr fan, I’m a redneck.

    It takes ONLY 1 repeat 1 torpedo or missle to send it to ablivian. IF the USA needed a good laugh that pittiful piece of a ship could be fronted by a submarine – It would either have to turn and run or be sunk.

  • lfhpueblo

    Since with the administration we have in office, I believe everyone should get some of the iodine tabs that you take in the event of a nuke or an EMP rocket. Even though an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) would not blow everything up on the ground or fry them, it would still rain down radiation. Start taking one pill right before or after the explosion and daily for 30 days (the milligram amount of the pills depends upon your weight, so children and babies can’t take the adult amount). Many companies have some that can be stored on your shelves for a period of up to seven years before expiration. Check out preparedness sites, many sell the iodine tabs. You know FEMA stockpiled quite a few this month, but not enough for all USA citizens. If we blow them up and they have rockets with radioactive isotopes on the ships, that will be in our oceans, and some will likely go up into the air and depending on which way the wind is blowing could drift over some shore line of the states. Without knowing what they have on board (which you know Russia is not beyond supplying them with what they want), they could have things like this not visible on deck, but stored underneath to easily be brought up at any time. They’ve been doing this power measure for a while now, so this info is not news to me, but since it is getting more media exposure I’m sure it is making some worry. I say be prepared since you can’t depend on our government anymore.

            Like I said, you don’t get it; but if I have to I will explain so that even your addled brain can understand it.

            The satirical comment was that Obama would wait for them to sail up the Potomac into the arms of the Washington Navy Yard and then disembark from their sunken ship to stay at the White House.

            Yeah, right. That’s a real world scenario in your world.

  • Steve

    Like any magician, this may be misdirection. Don’t worry so much about this obsolete piece of junk, If anything it is there to monitor our Navy going to and from the Persian Gulf. What may be the bigger problem is if they got any of the Russian Kilo Class diesel subs that they were planning to buy.

  • tinkerunique

    I don’t think they would ENTER American waters. AND if they do, I can guarantee they will be watched MORE closely than they are now. IF there were any “questionable” activities, there will be an immediate response from a couple different directions “BY AIR” within minutes. That is what “artificial reefs” are made out of.

      Read about the Iranian Valerie Jarrett ( Obama’s handler in the White House) and how her father-in law Vernon Jarrett way back in 1979 worked out a plan for a Muslim to be President using Arab Saudi oil money.

  • ult1

    No doubt, we have a submarine shadowing them the whole way. If Reagan was President, countries like Iran would be afraid to pull a stunt like this.

  • armydadtexas

    Here is a reasonable thought. Introduce the Iranian navy to The Naval Forces of the United States.(All of them) And keep the US Politicians the hell out of it. We have no leaders in the political class. Once that happens, Iran won’t ever make the same mistake again.

  • P Marz

    Maybe we should send them a message and surround them with attack subs,seemingly out of no where?

  • bobby1122

  • Yoikes

    We should not allow them to “test” our waters or anything else. Blow them out of the water if they even come close to our waters. They are testing us because once they have a bomb, they will fire and detonate one over us to destroy our power grid with an EMP blast. We can’t give them a HINT of daylight.

  • GFWSR

    Well, we could sink there ships and send our own message! I don’t really care is they are in U.S. waters or not! Iran had been at war with the U.S.A. since 1979, and we keep ignoring that fact!

  • USCBIKER

  • a_browning

    It will be shadowed by a submarine, regardless of whatever surface ships steam around or planes flying in the air. The sub will have it covered.

  • johnw465

    Obama will probably apologize

    • wolf

      My first thought too.

  • Thomas Gladden Wilson

    If one stops to ponder the U.S. presence in over 100+ military bases around the world we shouldn’t be getting too upset if we were being honest, because according to the U.S. Constitution we have had nothing but unconstitutional wars since way before G.W. Bush got us into Iraq and Afghanistan. They (in my opinion) are merely following a parallel about what President Teddy Roosevelt (an American Citizen btw!) called “the Big Stick” diplomacy principle. Their stick though is more like a small twig than anything else. If I miss my guess CincLant has had a Fast Attack Sub shadowing them for several weeks by now, and it would take a moron to consider a ship which is not much more than an glorified frigate a threat to National Security. The U.S. Coast Guard could take them down without any help from the U.S. Navy.

  • dhwilson58

    Iran is just trying to keep face, knowing we would kill their whole fleet just as fast as they crossed the “lines”. Moreover, a bigger concern to me is Iran is floating in our warships with our latest state of the art weapon mounted on the deck. How do we attack something that WE protect our life’s with? We can’t breach that weapon by sea or air. It’s going to have to be a SEAL underwater assault with C4. When are we going to stop giving our enamies our low high tech weapons ??? What the frick is wrong with our military ? Why are they putting up with Obullshit ? THIS MUST STOP NOW !!!

Now what would make you think this President would take any action when in fact he let 4 men die over in Benghazi without taking and sending help, this garbage of a man would hide under a ground bunker until all was left of American city’s would be ashes, and coming out of his bunker with a big smile tell the world he survive and that he did the RIGHT thing by not sending missiles. This man needs to be stopped America NOW.

    I wonder if the words “Turkey shoot” mean anything to Mr. Supreme Mad Mullah, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei?
    This little nose tweak might mean that Iran is about to announce that it has its very own nuclear weapon, thanks to President Obama. Mr. Supreme Mad Mullah is pulling this little stunt because he knows that the empty suit currently sitting in the White House will look the other way, as he usually does.
    Mr. Supreme Mad Mullah observes, quite correctly, that sound thinking Americans would welcome a regime change in Tehran. The sad fact is that our American Neville Chamberlain, i.e. President Obama, is not among them. But, the day of reckoning is coming, Mr. Supreme Mad Mullah. Iran has been asking for it since 1979.
    One fine day, there will be an American President with a “no quarter” mindset in the Oval Office. He/she will tell Mr. Supreme Mad Mullah, in no uncertain terms, that it’s long past time to take his toy boats and go home, or see each and every one of them blown out of the water, along with their crews, down to the last man. Any lifeboats left floating will be considered to be carrying terrorists to our shores with mayhem in mind, and will be destroyed as well. No swimmers either.
