Iran releases it's naval fleet into the Atlantic Ocean

The very country the United States is currently involved in a nuclear weapons ban with, Iran, threatened Sunday to "Destroy U.S. warships and kill American soldiers just a day after Iranian vessels approached U.S. waters for the first time in their maritime history.

Can this mean peace is at hand Secretary of State John Kerry? Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu must be holding his belly laughing at our naivety.

Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, the commander of the elite Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy said, “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.

Not exactly words to promote the U.S. demand for Iran to cease their nuclear capability.

The Rear Admiral made the statement Sunday in the regional press. He issued these threats one day after Iranian war vessels were reported to have approached U.S. maritime borders.

Iran claimed they made this bold and unprecedented move in “response to Washington’s beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf.” American ships have been stationed for over a year to keep international shipping lanes safe.

The Iranians are well aware of this.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei slammed the United States Sunday urging his Air Force to “know the enemy well.” Apparently he is unaware of Iran’s limited strike ability from their distance.

The Supreme leader continued, “The Iranian nation should pay attention to the recent nuclear negotiations and the rude remarks of the Americans so that everyone gets to know the enemy well. The Americans speak in their private meetings with our officials in one way, and they speak differently outside these meetings; this is hypocrisy and the bad and evil will of the enemy and the nation should observe all these cases precisely.

Is this a domestic pep talk or a true threat?

The United States and its allies continue to hopefully bring about a permanent agreement ensuring Iran complies with the six-month interim nuclear deal and sign an accord aimed at rolling back portions of its contested program.

No one is sure how this new threat will affect ongoing negotiations. Iran’s defense minister continues to reject Secretary of State John Kerry and the Obama administration’s overtures claiming that “U.S. officials cannot prevent Iran from continuing its nuclear fuel production.”

Furthermore, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan recently vowed to decimate U.S. military forces saying, “Iran will never allow the country’s nuclear fuel production cycle come to a halt,” according to a report in Fars.

The “negotiations” continue.
