Intention or Bluff?
How and When Will Obama Respond…
Shall We Count the Days?
Reports today from Russia state that Iran’s navy is planning to send a “flotilla” to patrol our eastern coast shortly. [Anyone know how many ships comprise a flotilla?] Are their navy destroyers arranging a sight-seeing tour or do they want to size-up our naval carriers that protect our nation? Do they want to contact our naval submarines that also travel our shore lines? What is their intent? Should we be concerned? According to a CNN report, the White House is not concerned and the Department of Defense says, ‘It’s no big deal.” As we have learned over the last three years, whatever this administration says, expect the opposite.
If you recall, in August, 2009, we had provocative visits by two nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines that patrolled our eastern coast for several days, but at least we were told that the military was monitoring their activities. Whether they are still in the area or have departed our international shores, I don’t know. I hope they went south to visit our neighbors in Cuba or moved further south to the South American coast. Here’s hoping the Russians don’t have plans to meet up with their Iranian friends off our coast line. (Now, the arrival of those Russian ships cruising along our shoreline did freak me out).
I don’t like blustering by despots because we never know when their cries of wolf will become reality. Middle Easterners have a different mind-set than we do. They’ve been brought up to believe if they end up in their heaven by following their Islamic jihadic cause they’ll be visited by multitudes of vestal virgins upon arrival. So they are all for offing one or a dozen western infidels for the chance to get their mighty nifty reward. If you haven’t noticed, it seems they are ramping up their stairways to heaven and forcing their ideology on everyone. Maybe like their Al Queda brothers the Iranians are willing to make aggressive moves on the western world and on our territory.
So my fellow Americans, here is the story from RT which I believe is a Russian newspaper’s website. This is an alert and not a panic button …yet. We just want to remain informed because we know that Iran’s President Ahmadinejad hasn’t unclenched his fist or given a high-five salute to our weak leader. In fact, it was only a week ago that he spoke to the UN General Assembly in New York City and raked our people, our nation’s policies, and our government over the coals. That’s nothing new, but he is consistent.
In reality, he’s had a rough week. He was given a warning by Al Queda to stop denying 9-11, there were hundreds of protesters outside the UN yelling for him to go home, and then multiple countries walked out on his speech. By sending a flotilla to the US he could be retaliating for people dismissing and ignoring his anti-American diatribe. Then again, perhaps we didn’t praise him enough for releasing those two leftist anti- American activists (spies) from prison. Do you think he suffers from the Napoleonic syndrome that so many short men do? Unlike his friend Hugo Chavez, Ahmadinejad didn’t smell sulfur when he took the stage at the UN. But after his fiery speech perhaps he left a distinct odor as he stepped away from the podium. Only the speaker after him would be able to report.
Iran to Patrol US East Coast
28 September, 2011, 22:12
Sick of the American navy’s ongoing presence in the Persian Gulf, an official with the military of Iran announced this week that they will be sending ships over to be stationed off the coast of the United States.
In other words, Iran thinks that what’s good for the goose is good for the colossal, militaristic gander.
A statement from Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyar to the official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) this week reads,
“Like the arrogant powers that are present near our marine borders, we will also have a powerful presence close to American marine borders,”
The IRNA adds that Sayyar, the commander of the entire Navy of Iran, will call for “the help of our sailors who follow the concept of the supreme jurisprudence” to send a flotilla towards the Atlantic coast of the United States.
On the same day as Sayyar’s statement, Iran Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi also revealed to the media that the navy has another tactic under its sleeve: the country is beginning production of cruise missiles made for sea-based targets that could even counter massive warships, reports The Associated Press. The AP says that Vahidi’s comments suggest that the weaponry could be used to combat American ships anchored in the Persian Gulf, but with a fleet setting sail towards the US, could a new cold war embark between the two nations?
The Department of Defense doesn’t think it’s a big deal.
Pentagon Spokesman Capt. John Kirby released a statement in response to Iran’s plans and says, “We’ve been pushing freedom of the seas for years and the Iranian navy can go wherever it wants.” Given those sentiments, it seems likely that the United States will continue to sail through the Persian Gulf, even if Iran is ready to respond to that presence.
For those keeping track, this marks at least the second time in a week that Iran has called out America as an “arrogant power.” Those were the words that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used last week when he called out the US for the military’s ongoing appearance in seemingly all ends of the globe.
Ahmadinejad said to the United Nations’ General Assembly last week,
“Do these arrogant powers really have the competence and ability to run or govern the world? Is it acceptable that they call themselves the sole defender of freedom, democracy, and human rights, while they militarily attack and occupy other countries?”
In the meantime, it looks as if Iran will send ships elsewhere, as well. State-run Press TV suggests that the country will also be deploying a new fleet into the Gulf of Arden to protect the nation’s ships from pirate attacks.
Please say a prayer for the Christian pastor that is to be executed in Iran because he won’t renounce his religion and accept Islam. Where are all of those Lefties that helped to free the American activists that were imprisoned? Why are they silent? Is this man’s life not important?
