To say there is no love lost between Iran and the United States would be an understatement. Iran has made similar threats against the United States that North Korea has made. They desire to not only destroy Israel but also destroy the US as well.
In a move that some say is blatantly aggressively, Iran has announced that they are sending a fleet of warship into the Atlantic Ocean with a destination of the Gulf of Mexico. The alleged purpose of the fleet is to help secure ties with some of their allies in Central and South America, one of which is Venezuela.
(Washington Free Beacon) – Iranian military leaders announced on Tuesday the country will send a fleet of warships into the Atlantic Ocean en route to the Gulf of Mexico, where the Islamic Republic aims to solidify ties with several Latin American states, according to the commander of Iran’s navy.
Following orders from Iran’s supreme leader, the newly installed commander of its navy, Rear Adm. Hossein Khanzadi, announced a fleet of Iranian warships would soon be making their way into the Atlantic Ocean, despite what Iran claims is opposition by U.S. officials.
As Iran continues to deploy military assets to Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern hotspots, its navy is placing a renewed focus on displaying force in international waters, according to the military leaders.
The latest military displays follow a series of provocative moves by Tehran aimed at rattling U.S. officials in the Trump administration, which has increasingly sought to confront Iran’s regional intransigence. Any Iranian presence in the Atlantic Ocean is certain to put U.S. military leaders in edge, according to experts who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon…
Some say it is no coincidence that Iran is sending a fleet of warships so close to the United States at the same time that North Korea tests an advanced intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States. Is it possible that Iran, who has also been developing nuclear weapons could be cooperating with North Korea on a possible joint attack?
