TEHRAN’S ‘MESSAGE TO AMERICA’
Iranian Warships ‘Ordered to Advance’ on U.S. Maritime Borders
Iranian warships have been ordered to approach U.S. maritime borders in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time, according to a senior Iranian naval commander.
The mission of the naval fleet, which will reportedly last for three months, is to send a “message.” What’s the message? That Iran has grown weary of Washington’s “beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf.” Iran, of course, is referencing the presence of the U.S. Navy’s 5th fleet in Bahrain, just across the Persian Gulf from Iran.
This is the just the latest provocation between Washington and Tehran in recent days.
– On Friday, Iranian state TV ratcheted up its anti-American rhetoric by running a documentary showing a computerized re-enactment of Iran’s drones and missiles being launched on Israeli and U.S. targets. In particular, the video showed the Iranian military bombing Tel Aviv, Haifa, the Ben Gurion Airport and the Dimona nuclear reactor. The video also showed the Iranian military carrying out simulated strikes on a U.S. aircraft carrier and other U.S. military targets in the Persian Gulf. Later, another Naval commander vowed to sink U.S. warships.
– In a speech this weekend, Iranian Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, blamed Iran’s hostile stance toward the U.S. on Washington’s “controlling and meddlesome attitude.”
