Iran to Deploy Navy off U.S. Coast? Lolwut?

Apparently so. [url]http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/27/world/meast/iran-navy/[/url] Well, being that I live in America, this story intrigued me. No doubt I felt a little unsettled at first, but after doing some background research, I started laughing. Iranian Navy: 3 WW2-era destroyers 5 Frigates 3 Corvettes 3 Diesel Powered Submarines None of which even have the range to sail the 8000 nautical miles between New York and Iran, and also have no nuclear capabilities. Plus they're doing this during the height of hurricane season. On behalf of the United States I would like to thank the Islamic Republic of Iran for their generous donation to our artificial reef program. Your thoughts? -------------- Funniest Comments I've Seen: [quote] [b]Posted By:[/b]Voro Nar Talamee: [quote]"The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured that its military might poses no threat to other countries...

Also, look at the picture again. Look at the guys facing away from the camera. 5th guy from right. What is he doing? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA[/quote][/quote] [Edited on 09.27.2011 8:36 PM PDT]

  • Any updates on this situation? I've been searching the news and net and have heard nothing. Surely someone here knows something more. I'm concerned this manuever is a "bait and switch" type of thing. 1. Draw attention to U.S. Coast 2. Nuke Isreal. Scary stuff. [Edited on 09.29.2011 2:09 PM PDT]
