Iran Ups the Ante: Iranian Warships Arrive Near Yemen

15

More of the poison fruit of Obama’s “counterterrorism success” story, Yemen.

Iran just called Obama’s hand, and based on Obama’s history, it’s pretty safe to say who will back down first.

Obama says they are not there to stop the Iranians. So what are our eleven warships doing there? Lunch?

How does this instill in our confidence in our allies?

Obama is negotiating nukes with Iran while sending warships to Yemen, where Iran has staged a coup. Obama’s foreign policy is incoherent and disastrous. What are our foreign policy objectives? He is walking us right into WWIII with nukes.

“Iranian Warships Arrive Near Yemen,” By Adam Kredo, Free Beacon,  April 22, 2015
Comes just days after U.S. announced it would send its own warships

A fleet of Iranian warships arrived near the southern coast of Yemen on Wednesday in a move likely to add greater tension in a developing U.S.-Iranian standoff in the region, according Iranian military leaders.

Just days after the United States announced it would send its own warships to Yemen in order to prevent Iran from smuggling weapons to terror forces fighting there, a flotilla of Iranian destroyers docked in the same area.

Iran’s military moves are likely to increase tensions between the two countries as each seeks to bolster opposing sides in the fight currently unfolding in Yemen.

An Iranian fleet including a destroyer warship and a helicopter-carrying warship arrived in the waters off the southern tip of Yemen on Wednesday, according to Iranian state-controlled media.

The warships will “protect [Iran’s] cargo ships and oil tankers against pirates,” according to Iran’s Fars News Agency.

The United States and other countries fear Iran is using these cargo ships to deliver weapons and other deadly hardware to opposition forces in Yemen.

The Iranian warships will remain in the area for at least three months, according to Fars.

Iranian military officials have been defiant about the country’s presence in the region, vowing to remain there despite pressure from other countries.

“This presence [of Iranian warships] continues in the free waters, including the Gulf of Aden, to fight against piracy according to the plan which was drawn at the request of the International Maritime Organization and no one can warn the Iranian warships (to move away) and this has not happened yet,” Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari was quoted as saying in the Iranian press over the weekend.

“We don’t have such a plan” to leave the area anytime soon “and we hope that security will be established in the Gulf of Aden with the help of all countries,” Sayyari said.

“There is no need for our flotilla of warships to dock in Yemen, but we are present in the Gulf of Aden powerfully and at present, our 34th fleet has been sent to the region,” he added.

Iran will not be deterred by threats from Saudi Arabia or other countries to leave the region, Sayyari said.

“We also don’t allow others to threaten or warn us since we can be present in the free and international waters based on the international laws,” he was quoted as saying. “We haven’t entered the territorial waters of any country without permission.”

The United States recently sent its own fleet of warships to the region in a bid to respond to Iranian efforts to smuggle weapons to rebel forces in Yemen.

The move is meant to give the United States “options” should Iran be caught smuggling dangerous materials.

    Those US shipos are there to make sure Saudia, Egypt or Israel; do not hinder iran’s re-arming of their agents in Yemen. The US under sultan Barry would NEVER (ever !!!!) hinder any iranian war/religious/terrorist effort!

    By now, even the most retarded, senile dullard must begin to see that sultan Barry is in cahoots with iran and islam!

    Our congress — comatose as usual, for they support everything sultan Barry does..

  • IS THIS RED LINE TIME ALL OVER AGAIN?

    Obama dared not cross the red line he’d drawn against the Assad regime (Iran’s allies) when they used chemical weapons against rebels. Were the 11 US war ships sent to Yemen an unspoken warning to Iran not to continue their support of the Houthis or else the US would join forces with the Saudis and intervene in Yemen to stop them? As Pam says, Iran is banking on Obama bluffing and will do nothing to jeopardize the nuke talks. Hopefully they’re wrong. Hopefully this time Obama will show some spine and act. But I’m not counting on it.

    PS Maybe if the State Dept. gives Iran the $50 billion signing bonus they’ll withdraw their ships?

      In order for obama to show some spine he first has to have balls.

      • So spines are to balls what seeds are to trees?

    Obama’s “foreign policy objectives” are: (1)-surrender to Iran, (2)-Islamize the U.S.

    • ninetyninepct

      With full and complete support of Democrats.

  • ninetyninepct

    I suspect that the American ships are there to make sure Iranian supplies are delivered without interference and full obama protection. Just my opinion based on obama’s past performance.

    • mezcukor

      Yes I agree with you.
