    Fars News Agency :: Iranian Navy Rigid about Deployment at US Maritime Borders

    "We would establish direct contact with the United States if we would ever go to the Gulf of Mexico," Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Ali Fadavi said earlier in September.

    That article says something a little different than the Tehran Times, the Tehran times says they ARE on their way to the Gulf of Mexico;

    "Commenting on the proposal for the establishment of a direct military hotline between the U.S. and Iran, Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said, “When we go to the Gulf of Mexico, we will establish direct communication with them. In the view of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the illegitimate presence of the U.S. in the Persian Gulf makes no sense.”

    Wow, look who's going to park their navy off our coast like we park ours off theirs. They just want to make sure that they can fire a few shots at our homeland. In case of war. I don't know why they're going to the gulf of Mexico...Off Washington Dc would be a better position.

    3 kayakers and a tuber could sink their whole navy with pea shooters, not fucking concerned.

    This whole mess, including syria, is going to come down on the iranian regime's head - and they are going to get wiped off the map very quickly. This is going to get ugly for iran. If you like iranian pistachios - you'd better get some soon...

    O'Bozo will never mention it to his crowds, all he cares about is stealing the election at this point.

    The best reason the Iranians have for contacting the US once thier ships reach the gulf would to be to make sure they are availible for rescue operations.

    Its not being in the gulf thats hard for them, its getting there. I'm sure if they can cross the atlantic and reach the gulf they would be able to use cuban and venezualan bases for refuel and refit.

    One LA or virgina class sub could take out the fleet in 5 mintues anyway.

    I don't think they have anything larger than a cruiser they are sending. Drug smugers have a stronger navy presence in the Gulf of Mexico

    During the Irish Potato Famine, the highest shark concentrations anywhere in the world were to be found along the shipping routes from the Irish ports and those of New York and Boston. During WWII, the highest shark populations were found in the seas around and in the South Pacific.
    If Iran chooses to go to the Gulf of Mexico, the shark count will inevitably jump there. Dang! Those US Gulf Coast tourist hot spots just can't catch a break, can they?
