    Default Iran Threatens American East Coast

    Iran's Navy has the ability to deploy its vessels three miles off the US east coast, a high-ranking Iranian Navy commander was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency.

    "Our naval forces are so powerful that we have a presence in all the waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New York," Revolutionary Guards Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi was quoted as saying during a speech to students at the University of Yazd earlier this week.

    Oh no! Iranian vessel approaching New York!

















    That's the most comical threat I've read.

    Sad, but true. Once the rapture happens (Oh Please, please, please Lord Jesus, let it be very, very soon!) the USA will no longer have the super-power status it has had for so many generations. The new world leader will see to that.
    Come Lord Jesus and bring us home soon!

    "Our naval forces are so powerful that we have a presence in all the waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New York.

    What are these guys smokin'. Or maybe they are playing a war board game in the back room of their headquarters.

    Great post about the sail boat
    {Mod Snip} I just want to go Home! I think the AC will probably acquire our weapons that were built for defense and turn it into offense ONCE we are gone. Once the church in America is raptured, America will no longer be a world power. Obama is trying to globalize U.S. It's only going to get worse.

    Not only the American military but all the countries that buy our weapons. The AC will need an instant military to keep the "peace" in the new world order.

    I wonder whether Iran and North Korea have the same incompetent press office. With just a few words they can make each of the nations they represent look ridiculous.

    First, they try to be scary, but admit that Iran's navy would have to be within three miles of New York to hit anything in or near New York.

    Secondly, two (and more often) three miles is a (slightly obsolete) limit on what a nation can claim as its territory off its coastline. So they are admitting they dare go no closer. The limit is generally about twelve nautical miles at this time (simultaneously revealing their ignorance of maritime law).

    Thirdly, maritime law allows shipping of an innocent and peaceful nature to sail within its territorial waters. Iran has advertised its hostility.

    Considering the warlike threats from Iran against Israel and America, I would, if Commander-in-Chief, make my own announcement:

    "Dear Mahmoud: Kindly consider your navy a shallow-water navy from this point forward. Any submarine vessels detected more than two miles from your own coastline will be considered hostile, enroute to the territorial waters of the United States and/or Israel, and subject to immediate attack. Military (by our assessment) surface vessels will be considered same if they stray more than three miles from your coastline and will be subject to immediate and unannounced attack. You and your staff are free to visit New York at any time - by open raft of no more than twelve feet in length from stem to stern, and with all your pockets turned inside-out and clearly visible from our escort attack helicopters."

    Unfortunately, we have a Commander in Chief who has no regard for Israel and is so pathetic he must use the anniversary of Bin Ladin's end, engineered by our undercover agents and Seal Team Six, to cast doubt on whether Mitt Romney could have done as well as he did. Playground politics: my daddy can whip your daddy.

    Since the POTUS backed down on his stance, and has agreed he would be okay with their nuclear program, so long as they don't enrich past a certain percentage, and will agree to allow inspections, - they will be fine with us for a while, - at least until they suceed in their program and use it against us and everyone else. What makes this man think they will abide by any of his requests even if they do agree is beyond me. I can't help but wonder how much it would cost the taxpayers to oversee all of this and keep them in compliance. (as if he could anyway)
    Come Lord Jesus and bring us home soon!

    Our nation, though threatened, still has freedom as a pillar, our shores remain open to idiots like these.


    But let some errant hikers stray into Iranian territory........


    I'd sink their navy now and send canoes as replacements.

    Missile launch from a canoe....that would be entertaining.

    Don't let your guard down! It's like taunting Satan!

    Remember some years ago we'd laugh at the Iranians testing 'rockets' that blew up shortly after lift-off. Then it was discovered they had nuclear ambitions. And then it was realised that a nuke exploding in the atmosphere was maybe just what they were aiming for. An EMP. It was awhile ago we understood that a small ship near our shores could launch a SCUD with a nuke that exploded high above a US city. One would set us back quite awhile.

    I agree. The devil has finally learned how to fight a war against mankind. Conceal and delay...this is what Iran's evil leaders are doing under the auspice of the father of lies. Obama is taking the stance that Neville Chamberlain took towards Hitler. We all know what happened shortly after that debacle.

    "Enriching uranium up to a certain point". I can't believe the naivete of this administration. What would be the response to:

    Dear Barry:

    The sword I plan to wear to my proposed conferences, though real, is for decorative purposes only. If used, I promise to stick it only five centimeters into an area of my adversary's body that contains no vital organs.

    Love,
    Mahmoud
