Why not send the Great Persian navy up the Thames? After all the British have been in the Persian Gulf for at least 200 years creating artificial nations out of greater nations, and turning these small nations into petrol stations and military bases for their military. British personnel have been caught many times illegally wondering into Persian territory.
Why not send the Great Persian navy near Israel to give support to the Palestinians.......provocative and unwise as it may be, whilst Iran sells itself as a peaceful responsible power to the world which can be trusted. After all Israel has several German made submarines in the Persian Gulf, near Iran armed with Missiles. The Israelis after all are in Northern Iraq training and arming the PKK/PJAK terrorists against Iran.
But I suppose when you have many secret Jews running mullah Iran, we must look the other way when it comes to Israeli crimes against Iran. Ahmedinejad the Jew must only make firey speeches against Israel in the UN. The Jew runs the JEWSA. The Jew is the only one which lusts after war against Iran, using the USA. The Jew in London lusts after war and aggression in Iran.
When a weak power which only spends 3% of GDP on defense postures militarily, it is considered "provocative". When a superpower postures militarily near other nations it has just threatened, this is considered normal.
This is how it is.
Protecting Iran means, protecting Iran's landmass effectively using the army and air-force. Protecting Iran does NOT mean sending the navy into the Atlantic. This is pure politicking.....with sloganism for the benefit of Israel's and London Jewish geo-strategic perceptions and needs.
Nazi Germany (1933--45) was also run by the Jews using secret Jews who made firey speeches against the Jew, whilst simultaneously helping to create a purely Zionist/Jewish State in Palestine (Adolf Eichmann, a Jew, being the principle liaison officer). The head of German Intelligence, Admiral Canaris worked for the international Jews. The International Jew knew about ALL German military operations in advance, on top of the fact that the enigma machine had been deciphered. Secret Jews within Nazi Germany ran the rest of the Nazi Jewish vaudeville, and in harming the nation....where 10 million ethnic Germans died within/without Germany between 1939--1948, and permanently occupied by other Jewish run powers.....to this day.
Mullah Iran displays shades of the old Nazi Germany Jewish run vaudeville game.
The announcement explicitly mentions reciprocating years of provocative US militarism around Iran
Iran plans to send military ships close to the United States’ Atlantic coast, according to the head of the Iranian Navy, Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.
“Like the arrogant powers that are present near our marine borders, we will also have a powerful presence close to American marine borders, Sayyari said on Tuesday without giving specifics as to when such a deployment could happen or the number or type of vessels to be used.
For years the United States has patrolled a fleet of Navy warships off the Iranian coast in the Persian Gulf, something seen as threatening to Tehran. In January of last year, the Obama administration accelerated the deployment of military vessels off the Iranian coast and placed antimissile systems in at least four Arab countries neighboring Iran.
Most notable is the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet based in Bahrain – less than 160 miles off the Iranian coast – which directs operations in the Persian Gulf, Red Sea, and Arabian Sea and secures the Straits of Hormuz, through which 40 per cent of the world’s seaborne oil passes. It is one of the largest military forces in the region, with over 40 vessels and close to 30,000 personnel.
The Fifth Fleet consists of a Carrier Battle Group, which includes an aircraft carrier, two guided missile cruisers equipped with Tomahawks for long-range strike capability, a guided missile destroyer for air warfare, a destroyer for submarine warfare, a frigate, two attack submarines, and a combined ammunition, oiler and supply ship. The Fifth Fleet also docks an Amphibious Ready Group, which consists of multiple other vessels including aircraft carriers, attack helicopters, a Marine Air-Ground Task Force, and more.
These and other US Navy warships patrol the waterways along Iran’s southern border on a daily basis, often with the explicit intention of provoking Iran. In 2007, the Bush administration deployed “the largest daytime assembly of US warships in the Gulf since the 2003 Iraq war to hold drills off Iran’s coast in a major U.S. show of force.” The assembly included about 17,000 personnel and 140 aircraft in addition to the usual, and was sent without notifying the Iranian government.
President Obama’s analogous show of force last year was described by the New York Times as ”part of a coordinated administration strategy to increase pressure on Iran” and also “intended to counter the impression that Iran is fast becoming the most powerful military force in the Middle East.”
The announcement by the Iranian Navy official comes weeks after the US got Turkey to agree to host a NATO anti-ballistic system aimed at spotting missiles coming from Iran. Turkey had agreed to the deal with the explicit condition that its neighbor Iran not be named as the impetus, strongly suggesting Iran was the primary target.
This demonstrates another aspect important to the context of US militaristic provocation towards Iran. Aside from warships to Iran’s south, the US makes major arms deals and sends significant amounts of security assistance to nearly all of Iran’s neighboring countries including Turkey, Kuwait, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, not to mention the two hot wars and client states the US is engaged in directly to Iran’s east and west in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Iran’s supposed plan to place navy vessels somewhere near America’s Atlantic coast, as the official who announced it said explicitly, is merely a response to the decades worth of US militaristic provocation towards Iran. Some in the US are objecting strongly to this, seeming implicitly to state that America doesn’t have to abide by the same rules Iran does and that America should not have to accept the obvious repercussions of aggressive foreign policies.
