Iranian navy ships to leave for Gulf of Mexico

39
Commander-in-chief of Iran’s naval forces, Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadeh made a sensational statement. Information Agency Tasnim reports that the new commander of the Navy of the country reports on the imminent dispatch of Iranian warships to the Gulf of Mexico.


From the statement of Hossein Hanzade:
Our ships will visit several Latin American states and display the Iranian flag in the Gulf of Mexico.


This statement caused a strong reaction in the Western media. The US media said that Iran’s main goal is to send its Navy ships "to the shores of the United States." At the same time, it was immediately noted that "such actions by Iran are a threat to American security." That is, if American warships are targeting their missiles at Tehran from the Persian Gulf, this is “normal and democratic,” and if Iranian warships send a friendly visit to the countries of Latin America, is this a “threat to the US”?

Iranian navy ships to leave for Gulf of Mexico


Recall that earlier, Washington published a list of countries - "the main sponsors of international terrorism." Among these countries, traditionally for the United States in recent times was the Islamic Republic of Iran.

    A little laugh in the morning .. This rear admiral. What, is the Iranian fleet so large that it can afford such trifles? The striped response is quite predictable. There, and a sailing boat under a non-kosher flag is a threat.

      That is, the yapping of the United States is always serious, and the sound speeches of any other country are a reason to laugh? what The Persians are great for making such a statement, and twice as many will be great if they keep their promise! !! good

          Okay. Let’s think your comment is pathetic. Yes, fortitude is a great thing. Only this should be backed up. For example, the Japanese during the Second World War.

          And in some ways I share the point of view of 210 est. When Ukrainians put forward a dozen of their Oplot super tanks for the crushing defeat of Russia, this simply causes universal rzhach. And it is absolutely justified. And here Iran was going to shake the codpiece in the Gulf of Mexico.

          Even if the entire Iranian fleet advanced there, it would not pose any threat to the regiments. What will they (Iran) achieve in general? They will give an extra trump card to the frantic authors of the “Iranian threat”, who will now double-pressure on their anti-Iranian allies in the BV and will maximize anti-Iranian sanctions.
          The Persians would still have lived quietly for a year or two. To make friends with us and the Chinese. DIC tighten. Then you can and ... knock on the table. In the meantime, too early. And unreasonable.

            In general, Iran does not seem to threaten anyone. A friendly visit to other states and all. And the goal is most likely to gain the experience of long trips.

            Why such neglect? Even a small vessel can make a lot of noise in neutral waters if it receives an order for action. This is in response to provocations of pind owls on the territory of Iran itself. Drive gas tankers, for example. There is enough simple RPG.

      Which one, but there is a fleet in Iran. So why, with the current American overturn on Iran, doesn’t demonstrate its pennant in their region? Therefore, do not laugh at the fact that the Iranians decided to patrol the United States.

      Although this is quite a fat trolling, it’s quite nice. I love when things happen annoying Fashington Hechemon. Now, let all sorts of non-marinated Vietnamese McCains begin to pull out the hair on the oppa themselves and others. It will be funny when all ships, including Kampuchea, Zimbabwe, and, of course, the DPRK of Kimchi, will start sending warships to the Gulf of Mexico !!!

    Yes, they were not afraid.
    They think that it will be profitable.
    They can easily organize a provocation or carry out a sabotage against the ship group of Iran.
    Amers will not be anything for it.
    And if the Iranians launch a missile in response to the United States, this is a humbling occasion for the air-racers to launch a massive missile strike on Iran.
    In general, it is not in Iran’s interests.
    Have declared themselves as an regional power, and stick to this version.
    The Iranians have not yet grown to a different level.

    a pair of flagships of the Russian Navy would be nice to join the Iranians, as well as to demonstrate the flag and to support Cuba and Venezuela with Russian weapons and equipment .., and the special squad of our "gas workers" didn’t stop either, the West has long been accusing us of expansion, it’s time to get busy with it really ..
