    Iran sending warships close to US borders[W:623]

    News from The Associated Press

    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.

    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.
    Does anyone else think this is not a great idea? Sort of like waving red meat in front of a pit-bull.

    Since when does a 'fleet' consist of two insignificant ships?

    a helicopter carrier in case Iran wants to invade Bermuda, and a 'destroyer' so ...( incomplete thought)

    Yes, we should definitely murder random sailors in international waters.

    Or, we can behave like a real superpower and completely ignore this complete non-issue of a "fleet." But hey, if you want to go with the reaction of abject fear, go ahead and write the DOD and see if they listen.

    Meh...I think there is a greater potential for the Iranian 'fleet' to break down and require assistance than there is reason to be concerned.

    Only a Libbo would call it murder.

    Oh no, it would be the "pirates" or "anti-Iranian terrorists" who would do that. Provide them with the same false flag treatment they've been giving us all these years.
