This is almost certainly a fabrication. Never the less, it is an appropriate assessment of some parts of the Unites States.
I was checking my news feed this morning and read this headline “Iran promises to send warships to Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean.”
LONDON — Iran’s new naval commander has vowed to send warships to America’s backyard.
Rear Adm. Hossein Khanzadi said plans were being drawn up for vessels to be deployed to the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean “in the near future.” They would also visit South American countries, he added.
Tehran has long complained about U.S. ships being based in the Persian Gulf.
Speaking at his first press conference since being appointed, Khanzadi promised his navy would “wave the flag of our country in the Gulf of Mexico.”
I hope, for the sake of the US Navy and Cost Guard, that this is just bluster and saber rattling.
