Iran is reported to be eager to project its naval power beyond the Middle East   Iranian warships in the Atlantic Ocean are to sail close to US maritime borders for the first time, a senior naval commander has said.   Iranian media quoted Adm Afshin Rezayee Haddad as saying the deployment was a response to US vessels in the Gulf.

It looks to me that the mollahs have an itch that needs to be scratched. they say in persian "kooneshoon Mikhareh" . maybe if they learn their lesson, things would get better.
I think after they challenge the American naval forces, Iran should try to challenge the Israeli air force for shits and giggles too. That would compound the lesson and maybe these idiot Mullahs will stop running their mouths agains the worlds number one Military and the worlds Number Eight air force? Did Iran make the top 10 in any category militarily? I think not.

Zendanian An injury to one is an injury to all.

It's a lot more serious than an "itch" (although mullahs have had a big itch since day one!).
Social protests, workers' strikes/marches, and average peoples discontent in general, are all on the rise.
The only "answer" Mullahs have to peoples demands is to "offer" more repression and violence.
But even more repression and violence seems to have exhausted itself.
So what is a dysfunctional regime to do while facing all these external and internal crisis?
Create even more crisis (in the good old tradition of Islamic Republic of Hell), and what is the best, ultimate crisis mullahs can create?
A military confrontation with US.
And what's the first thing they would announce after such a military confrontation?
A nation wide Martial Law, taking everybody off of the streets, and giving themselves ample space and opportunity to smash any popular protests.

P.S. Of course this is true and tried method in the West as well. They even made a movie about it!

amirparvizforsecularmonarchy I Love Waterfalls and Find One of the most humorous things in the world; is the notion that Americans are a greater force for good & more civilized than Nazi's, Mullahs and Communists.

It has always amazed me how being an olagh really has no limit, believing in a saint waiting to save humanity living in a well is not just disturbing it is terrify sickness that mullahs have being cultivated against Iranians. Blind followers of insane stupidity is not a source of national pride. See the values being exercised on Bahrain by the USA, that should tell the idiots what they are dealing with, as they are going to down the road of trying to impose worse extremists like the Mek against the will of the people, by force.

Ali Rezaabady I respect life in any form and in its totality. I reject all super natural phenomenon and I believe with all my heart that religion in any form and shape is a deadly shackle that bonds our intellect to abyss of oblivion.

I don't know whether I should be proud because my county's navy is challenging (the think they are) the most powerful navy ever on this planet or should I laugh at these brainless Mullahs thinking out of their anus.

Adm Haddad has been sucking on that 'vafoor' too long.

On the serious note; I think Mullahs are creating this moronic political maneuvering to fool the gullible yet again and god knows there is no shortage of gullible in Iran.

Go Admiral Haddad, it is good for your health, get a little closer champ.

We are Powerless Spectators of our own Nightmare show. It just could not get any worse and then this BS. World War One technology has its challenges.

Please God if you exist, show it by reminding the IRI sailors how to drive their boats and avoid ice bergs.
