Iranian Warships Headed Toward U.S. Maritime Borders to Send 'A Message'

Iranian Northern Naval Fleet Commander Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad said Iranian warships are headed toward U.S. maritime borders to send “a message.”

The move “is part of a longstanding protest against U.S. vessels in the Persian Gulf.”

According to RT.com, Iranian warships started their voyage toward the U.S. on February 8th. This will mark the first time warships from Iran have come close to U.S. maritime borders. 

No word on the number of vessels deployed or the length of time they will spend by U.S. maritime borders once they arrive.

Iran first announced plans to send these ships in September 2011, when they accused the U.S. of “global arrogance” for keeping a naval presence near Iranian “sea borders.”
