We do live in Interesting Times. Iran will be sending warships to the US coast.

Iran’s navy will send ships into the Atlantic Ocean, state-run Islamic Republic News Agency reported Tuesday. The vessels will sail out of the Persian Gulf and toward the U.S. East Coast as retaliation for American ships in the Persian Gulf.

“The Navy of the Iranian Army will have a powerful presence near the United States borders,” the paper stated.

“[As] the world arrogant power is present near our marine borders, we, with the help of our sailors who follow the concept of the supreme jurisprudence, shall also establish a powerful presence near the marine borders of the United States,” said Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.

Well isn’t that special. The Iranian Army has its own Navy.

The Pentagon has responded:

“We’ve been pushing freedom of the seas for years and the Iranian navy can go wherever it wants,” said Pentagon Spokesman Capt. John Kirby.

Iranian warships within flying distance of the US coast? Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Thanks for helping Iran.
