Iran Deploying Warships to U.S. Waters......David Risselada

For the first time, Iranian warships will be conducting missions near the U.S. maritime borders. They are attempting to prove that they have abilities to project power beyond their borders, and claim to be sending ships to South Africa in response to the presence of the U.S. Navy's 5th fleet, which is currently based in Bahrain. The Iranian ships will be conducting training operations for a three month deployment to the region. This is a startling development that can only be the result of President Obama's policies of appeasement toward the terrorist sponsoring nation. 

This deployment was announced by an admiral in the Iranian Navy amid the release of a film entitled "The Nightmare of Vultures." The film depicts an aggressive campaign against Israeli and U.S. forces in response to a hypothetical attack against Iran. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's spiritual leader, has denounced the U.S. claiming that with one hand we reach out in friendship, while on the other we secretly plot their destruction. This film was clearly intended to demonstrate to the world Iran's ability to conduct combat operations. One thing is clear, they are preparing for war while our president continues enacting policies that weaken our own military.

Iran has not been the only Navy to appear in U.S. waters. Ships from China and Russia have appeared in U.S. territory as well. In 2012 a Russian nuclear attack sub sailed undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for weeks, and it wasn't even realized until after it had left. This is the second time since 2009 that Russian submarines were conducting operations near U.S. shores.  The Chinese also took a retaliatory stance as they sent a spy ship into Hawaiian waters. This was in response to the U.S. naval presence in the South China Sea.

It would appear that President Obamas policies of gutting defense spending while appeasing the attitudes of our enemies have not resulted in a "world peace" where every one respects the U.S. for lowering their guard. To the contrary, our enemies have been emboldened and believe the misguided policies of this president present them with their opportunity to project their own military might. With Obamas obvious anti American attitude you really have to wonder if these polices are misguided, or deliberate attempts to further weaken us in order to merge us into the emerging world government. Either way, the fact that Russia, Iran and China have signed a mutual defense pact gives a new sense of urgency to these developments.
