Tensions on the oil shipping lanes in the Gulf have escalated with the announcement of new naval exercises by Iran‘s Revolutionary Guards and news that Israel and the US are planning to carry out extensive joint manoeuvres in the region.

The naval commander for the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, said the drill in February would be “different compared to previous exercises held by the IRGC”. The Iranian navy finished 10 days of exercises in the Gulf on Monday, during which it tested a range of new missiles. It warned that Iran could close the strait of Hormuz, the narrowest point in the Gulf, through which a fifth of the world’s traded oil passes.

On the same day, the Israeli military said it was preparing for joint exercises with the US to rehearse missile defence and co-operation between the forces. The manoeuvres involve thousands of troops, have been planned for some time and were hailed by Israeli and US officials as their biggest joint drill.

  1. Is that photo for real. Are those clowns really maning the battle stations on their dingy!!!! It looks to me like this sub would have a screen door. OK, I’m being sarcastic but come on, really. I hope they know what they are doing . . .

  2. Once war breaks out, the Muslimic Heaven will be too crowded. According to Hadith, their Heaven has a total capacity for 70,000 souls with only 72 renewable virgins. Fight will occur in their Heaven when it’s OCCUPIED by Iranian souls.
