MOSCOW, January 16 (RIA Novosti) – Iran will deploy a fleet of warships to the Mediterranean Sea, Navy chief Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said on Wednesday.

“The Navy’s 24th fleet of warships will patrol the north of the Indian Ocean, the Gulf of Aden, Bab-el-Mandeb, the Red Sea, Suez Canal and the Mediterranean Sea for three months and will even sail as far as southeastern Asian countries,” Sayyari was quoted by Press TV as saying.

The 23rd fleet of warships will return to the country next week, he added.

Referring to the Navy’s recent drill, dubbed Velayat 91, Sayyari said the maneuver displayed Iran’s naval capability and its ability to counter any threat against the interests of the Islamic Republic.

    This peacocking and posturing gesture from Iran should not be ignored. It shows that they are serious in their attempts to instigate mass global jihad.

    @ Softly Bob : not only should it not be ignored, it should be the RED line Netanyaho was talking about. But with Obama on their side…and Australia’s islamophile FM in charge of the “sanctions against Iran” at the discredited UN so-called “security council” and BBC, Aljazeera et all bein in charge of the propaganda office…. what chance has civilisation got? I never thought I would say that, but I am looking to Russia in hope….

  3. Richard says:

    @Rita, right now Russia is helping Iran. Not because they like them but because they can use them to once again become major players on the worlds stage.

    No this can’t be ignored, unfortunately we have national leaders that seem to want Iran to be the big power in the Mideast. The only reason I can think of that Obama might do something is if the Saudi King or Morsi ask or ordered him to.

  4. Rita says:

    Richard I was thinking more in the kind of informations that seem to come out of Russia (which the western media withold from us). I have seen some very truthfull reports from RUSSIAN TV about what Paris is really like, and also that documentary about Syria. Am I completely confuddled, or are the Russians against the murderous “Rebel” side whereas Iran promotes them?
