Iranian Warships Headed Off East Coast Close to U.S. Boarders…

Obama continues to shrink our military, while stooping to new levels of how badly he can treat our men and women in uniform.  While this is happening, our adversaries keep testing, and testing us.

Of course the Iranians would have to also test us.   Iran has indicated officially that they have sent several warships to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time.  Special U.S. Naval vessels are on constant watch near the U.S. coast as can be seen yesterday and today from the Jacksonville Beach, Florida coast.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A senior Iranian naval commander says his country has sent several warships to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time.

The commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying Saturday that the vessels have already begun the journey to the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa.

Iranian officials said last month that the fleet consisted of a destroyer and a logistic helicopter carrier, which will be on a three-month mission.

Haddad says the fleet is approaching U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to U.S. naval deployments near its own coastlines. The U.S. Navy’s 5th fleet is based in nearby Bahrain.
