In a move that can only be seen as a deliberate isult to the USA, the Iranian Navy will soon be sending a flotilla of warships to visit Latin America and the Gulf of Mexico, Iran's newly-appointed naval commander has said. The move will be a demonstration of the country’s ability to project power far beyond its shores.
In his first press conference in Tehran since being appointed, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said that Iranian naval forces will cross the Atlantic and stop over at friendly South American countries before flying the Iranian flag in the Gulf of Mexico, local media reported on Wednesday.
“Our fleet of warships will be sent to the Atlantic Ocean in the near future and will visit one of the friendly states in South America and the Gulf of Mexico,” Fars news agency quoted him as saying.
This Iranian vessel is not the best looking warship we've seen, but it looks to pack a decent punch
Earlier this month, former navy chief and now deputy commander of the Iranian Army Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said that it was a crucial objective for the Iranian Navy to be able to project its power far beyond the shores of Iran. There is no apparent reason for Iran's navy to leave the Indian Ocean, but vessels were sent to join the Russian fleet off Syria at the height of hostilities there, and US ships have regularly sailed close to Iran's territorian waters in the Persian Gulf.
“Sailing in open waters between Europe and Americas should be the navy’s goal, which will be realized in the near future,” Sayyari declared.
Khanzadi also announced plans to revitalize the Iranian Navy’s hardware with upgraded vessels and helicopters, as well as a new ship and submarine fleet which will be unveiled within the next year. Khanzadi added that a new Peykan-class Separ (shield) missile-launching corvette would join the country’s Caspian Fleet next week, and that there are also plans for Navy to build an airport in the southern port city of Jask.
In 2014, Iran announced that it was sending its vessels to the Gulf of Mexico, located between the eastern coast of Mexico and the southern American states of Texas, Florida and Louisiana. The intention was to protest the constant US presence in the Persian Gulf, the Navy 5th fleet’s Bahrain base having occasionally led to confrontations.
In July, a US Nimitz-class aircraft carrier and another warship fired warning shots at the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) boats, which the IRGC described as “a provocative and unprofessional move”, before leaving the area. Several days earlier USS ‘Thunderbolt’ fired several warning shots from a heavy machine gun in response to an Iranian vessel’s “provocative actions,” according to Pentagon officials, but Iran claimed the American vessel had moved towards an Iranian naval ship and fired two shots in an attempt to intimidate the crew.

More Than ISIS, Iraq’s Sunni Insurgency
The story emerging in Iraq is of another American foreign policy fuck up, a total misreading of the situation by the world's most parochial global power. By December 2013, Sunni leaders had become tired of the jihadi group the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) actions in their areas and publicly supported the Iraq government’s military campaign against the group’s bases. Unfortunately the ISIS rebels were armed with US military technology and Obama was calling for the resignation of the government in Baghdad, prompting Russia and Iran to support them ...
