Apparently so. http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/27/world/meast/iran-navy/

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?

Cause it can't pose a threat to anyone else.

"...yes sir, deploying both ships."

Don't believe the lies corporate media feeds you. Its obviously a distraction from a much bigger threat...

US Coast Guard prepares for massive rescue mission after Iranian fleet sinks off shore. Reports say a small thunderstorm caused most of the ships to simply...fall apart.

I'll bet Iran's sailors will be too tired to cause any trouble after rowing all that way.

No really, I don't think they'll last on the open ocean.

I honestly laughed when I read this. I'm pretty sure the Coast Guard could deal with the Iranian Navy all by itself.

"Commander of the Navy of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran "

Got enough "Of"s there, big guy?

Signatures are for little kids.

The government of Iran is filled with total egomaniac idiots.

The people there need a revolution.

I'll be so pissed if they have a nuke on one of the ships.

They'll launch it at us, the nuke will get blown up by defensive missiles, and then we get to utterly take a dump on their "fleet."

What doesn't kill you, only makes you stranger

Suppose they make it to American Waters. We are Titled "World's Greatest Navy" For a reason.

  • 09.27.2011 7:31 PM PDT

That's laughable. The United States Navy outclasses the entire world, and yet Iran thinks they will be some sort of presence? Funny stuff.

You know what's even better? We almost can match our number of Nimitz class supercarriers to their entire Navy.
