Saber rattling continues- Iranian Admiral: ‘We can move a vessel within three miles of New York City’

April 29, 2012 IRAN - An official of the Iranian military said last week that the country’s navy has the ability to move a naval vessel within three miles of the East Coast of the United States. Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, speaking on Tuesday to students of the University of Yazd, Iran, at the anniversary of a failed U.S. military operation in April 24, 1980 (Operation Eagle Claw), said that “The power of our naval forces is such that we have a presence in all the waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New York.” The U.S. launched “Operation Eagle Claw” in 1980 to rescue American hostages held captive at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran. The top ranking naval officer added: “The Americans’ only tool to rule the world is their naval dominance of the Persian Gulf, and they will face any other power that threatens their status.” The Daily Caller reports that a Pentagon official reacted to Fadavi’s claim on Friday. He said: “You should ask the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps what their plans are. We support freedom of the seas and encourage all countries to follow international laws.” Daily Caller speculates that Iran could use a commercial vessel sailing under the flag of another country to approach the American shoreline to strike. The website notes that Iran possesses the capability to launch ballistic missiles from a ship.  The Daily Caller also reports that on Friday, Iran’s top air force commander, Brigadier General Amri Ali Hajizadeh, told Fars News Agency that the Iranian military has the capability to disable and sink U.S. aircraft carriers.  According to YNet News, Hajizadeh said: “First, sinking an aircraft carrier is not a complicated task. Second, an aircraft carrier is equipped with so many advanced, delicate, and sensitive devices… that it could be incapacitated by even the smallest explosion.”  Iran’s latest threats were apparently in response to the news that the United States has deployed advanced jet fighters only 200 miles from Iran’s mainland. Digital Journal reports that the U.S. deployed F-22 stealth fighters to an allied base close to Iran’s mainland. According to Digital Journal, “F-22 Raptors that have never been tested under combat conditions are now stationed at the Al Dafra Air Base in the United Arab Emirates… the U.S. has been quietly assembling a powerful air-to-air fighting team at bases near Iran. Before the F-22s were deployed, the Air Force deployed the Massachusetts Air National Guard’s 104th Fighter Wing, with 20 F-15Cs, to Southwest Asia.” –Digital Journal

    I believe the Iranian Admiral is correct in his declaration.
    Submarines has to be the vessels he is referring to.
    In regard to Aircraft carriers, it is alleged that Iran has laid torpedo
    silos at the bottom of the persian gulf to includes mines. I would think if a carrier was struck underneath instead of on the side, that could be problem. Suppose the nuclear reactor was compromised? Wonder if he was speaking about a suicide attack?
    just an opinion………….

    • I think submarines are what he’s referring to as well and not a ocean-going vessel, though I don’t think they want to mention it to alarm anyone.

        That is what I sort of thought…..
        You know, lets say, that a submarine penetrated within 3 miles of New York and it could happen and it could launch cruise missiles from its torpedo tubes and New York could be heavily damaged.
        That submarine would have to be equipped with super-silent gears,propeller and propulsion unit. Remember “Hunt for Red October”….

      • Exactly, or even a EMP bomb. We live on the frontier of these horrific new realities. I think much of Iran’s technology is geared towards trying to exploit U.S. vulnerabilities since they’re no match for the U.S. militarily. China seems to be moving in the same direction with anti-ship BM and anti-satellite weapon systems.

      We have to remember they hate Americans. They think they are fulfilling prophesy to exterminate us. Radical Islam followers believe if they kill us for Allah they get seventy-two virgins in heaven! They don’t care if they annihilate the planet because they are crazy. These kinds of tyrants have to be stopped, the government knows these facts. Iran is signing their own death certificate. You can expect the hammer to come down hard on them soon, they are not going to back down. We are their #1 enemy and they have their sights set on us. They have already infiltrated our country, waiting for the next strike, to play their part in killing us. I don’t think our military can afford to wait for them to make the first strike.

        The US never got over the embassy thing in Iran 30 or so years ago, despite the current leadership in Iran being way more moderate than the leadership back then (they even actively encourage western tourism now). Generally the people in Iran are pretty happy with their lives even though their life is “different” to that in the US and democracy in the US form is not on the agenda. They believe religion and state are the same thing. I don’t agree with this, but hey, it’s their country. 30 years of a foreign power building military bases on ALL of their borders goes some of the way to explaining the mistrust and “hate”. There are 45 US bases around Iran today. If it was my country, firstly I’d be mouthing off about the US like their leadership does, it’s called “brinkmanship”. They have been pretty good at it, threatening consequences for Israel etc. it should be pointed out they havent actually done anything to anyone, particularly the US, in recent times. Secondly,if brinkmanship didn’t work, I’d start a nuclear program, because there would be no other way I’d be able to defend myself against an immensely superior power. Forget this country is Iran and apply he circumstances to the country you live in now, what would you do? Do you want to live in your country the way you choose? What if another country built 45 bases around ALL your borders? The US should just leave them alone. There are plenty of more worthwhile injustices to correct in the world where people are being persecuted and are dying everyday, and not just “philosophically different” as is the case in Iran. By all means, bomb them back to the stone age 20 times when they actually do something wrong (like old Libyia and to a lessor extent Iraq before Gulf War I, but not GWII ). Pushing and pushing Iran until they snap is bad for the whole human race.

    Anything is possible, but I’m certain that our military knows exactly where the Irainian vessels are at any given minute of the day or night. Why would they be so determined to hit NYC a civilian target ? Oh that’s right they’re Muslims, they like to kill defenseless civilians. Why not move a couple of hundred miles down the coast and hit Washington, D.C. ? Now that would be a blessing to us, wipe out the REAL terrorist to the American people, the politicians.

    Christians thinks their religion is perfect, and the Bible is the truth. They are willing to bash other people, and even each other, in the name of their religion. Muslims thinks their Q’uran is all truth, and they are willing to die or kill for it. And all other religions– Jews, Hindu, Buddhists, and others all think theirs is the only way and the truth. All these religions have their “saviors”– Jesus of Christians, Mohammed of Muslims, Krishna of Hindu, Buddha of Buddhists, and Messiah of Jews…everyone are all looking for the same thing but have different versions of truths. No wonder religion is the number one cause of all the wars and aggression.
    We all need to realize that there is no such thing as “perfect” religion except for love, and we need to push aside all our bigotry and hatred and embrace our Creator as one people.

    • What’s causing aggression on the planet is ‘testosterone’ not religion. It’s present in men and women and people don’t need a religion to kill someone- must do it in absence of one. The world is violent and full of patriarchal masculine aggression and has been since the fall in Eden- this is the problem. Christ is the way, “the truth and the life- no man cometh unto the Father but by me” according to His own testimony in John 14:6. Christianity exclusivity clause of Christ being the only way to the Father was meant to divide His followers from a lost world. This is not about spinning a wheel and picking a messiah that suits the masses so the world can be at peace. It’s about redemption, salvation and about Christ who is both Lord, Savior and is coming back as King of Kings to institute his kingdom here on Earth. Love is not a religion- love is the pathway. There is no peace in this world. There never has been nor will there ever be until sin is eradicated and God’s institutes His rightful rule on Earth. .

        The funny thing is, all of our “enemies” that our governments are willing to illegally invade sovereign territory for, risk starting WW3 for, are by some strange coincidence, enemies of Zion.

        So it seems it is not testosterone that is the problem, or religion in general, it is Zionism.

        Since when did Christians become willing warriors for Zionism? Go back less than one hundred years and Christian Europeans loathed Jews enough, to chase them out of their localities, with flaming torches.

        Are people really so easily brainwashed, by a media that is Zionist controlled, they will start WW3, because it tells them to?

        Alvin,
        The only emotion I feel God understands is love. Its certaintly the only way I can communicate with him. Its not a pathway, and if you are going to be cross with me for saying this then so be it. Everything that is happening is about Matthew 19:14. When Jesus decends, it will not be in anger but in sadness. None of this is about us, it,s about our legacy. Only my view, dismiss it as you will.

      Wrong! Religion is not the cause of all wars, EVIL is the cause of all wars and satan is behind all wars using people who pit themselves against Creator-God. Jesus is the ONLY way the truth and the life, NO one gets to Father-God except through Jesus Christ alone. We can only push aside bigotry and hatred by allowing the love of Jesus Christ through Creator-God to fill our hearts, and the only way this will happen is when we study the word of Creator-God to learn how to develop a relationship with the Creator of our universe. We cannot set aside evil, and hatred by ourselves because we are sinful beings in need of a saviour which is Jesus Christ the Lord who died for us all so that we can obtain eternal life.

      2. Eros- sexual love (man and wife)
      3. Agape- which is unconditional love Corinthians 13

    Isaiah 56:9-12. In the New Living Translation it says “Come wild animals of the field! Come, wild animals of the forest! Come and devour my people! For the leaders of my people – the Lords watchmen, His shepherds- are blind to every danger. They are like silent watchdogs that give no warning when danger comes. They love to lie around, sleeping and dreaming. They are stupid shepherds, all following their own path, all of them intent on personal gain. “Come” they say, “we will get some wine and have a party. Let’s get drunk. Let this go on and on, and tomorrow will be even better”.
    And we learn of the author of this blindness in 2 Corinthians 4:3&4 “If the Good News we preach is veiled from anyone, it is a sign that they are perishing. Satan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News that is shining upon them. They don’t understand the message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
