Americans keep hearing from our President and our Secretary of State how they believe Iran wants to join the world of peaceful nations. They talk about trusting the rogue nations intent as they negotiate the P5+1 deal.

If our foreign policy leaders are correct in discerning the intention of the Iranian government, why are the Iranian leaders making threats about the United States?

The Americans can sense by all means how their warships will be sunk with 5,000 crews and forces in combat against Iran and how they should find its hulk in the depths of the sea” said Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps Navy Cmdr. Ali Fadayi in a statement to Fars reported by The Times of Israel.


He went on: “They cannot hide themselves in the sea since the entire Middle East region, western Europe, the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and the Straits of Hormuz are monitored by us, and there is no place for them to hide.”


He wasn’t the only Iran official to tout the ships’ location in the Atlantic as a pure show of force against America.


Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan said Iran’s military was now being positioned to respond quickly and successfully to an American attack, Fars said.


“The Iranian Armed Forces are an intertwined and coherent complex that can give a decisive response to any threat at any level and any place under the command of the Commander-in-Chief,” Mr. Dehqan said, The Times of Israel reported. “The enemy can never assess and think of the range of the response given by the powerful and mighty Armed Forces of the Islamic Iran.”


Iran said over the weekend it had dispatched warships to the Atlantic Ocean, off America’s northern coastal states.


At the same time, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the Americans liars, intent only on bringing down Iran’s government, The Times of Israel reported. He also called it “amusing” if America thought Iran would decrease its desire for and pursuit of “defensive capabilities,” the outlet reported.
