BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – On Thursday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry summoned the Swiss ambassador, the patron of American interests in Tehran, and delivered a letter of protest against the American threats.

“We protest against the harmful measures and provocative actions of the American forces in the Gulf waters,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi.

Mousavi continued: “The Swiss ambassador delivered a strong message of protest against the threats and illegal and destabilizing presence of the American forces in the northern Gulf waters and near the Iranian coast.”

Mousavi called on the United States to honor maritime navigation laws, stressing that Iran would respond appropriately to any threats and attacks in the Persian Gulf waters.

“Trump’s threats to destroy Iranian boats are provocative and condemned,” he added.

The leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Hussein Salami, had announced earlier today that he had directed the naval forces in the Gulf waters to target any American warship that threatens the security of Iran.

He added that Iran will respond strongly to any threats in the Gulf waters: “We will respond firmly, quickly and effectively to any targeting of us. “

ROFL! The mullahs are chanting “Death to Murica” for 40 years and don’t even get when Yankees show the same humour as them… It would be perfect if the war breaks in October : anyone being POTUS during a war was systematically re-elected. FDR even got a waiver to do a 3rd mandate.

As Salami is a serious moron and morons dare anything, we can be sure he’ll soon send speedboats to harass USN… This time, they will be sunk by CIWS. To not lose face, which is fatal in the region, he’ll try to sink the 5th fleet. It’s very unlikely he manages to hit destroyers, cruisers or carriers, but he might damage or maybe sink some support vessels.

Trump will play the lukewarm why DEM-majority congress will call to bust the crazy mullahs and their IRGC terrorists… I must say that it’s preferable that the Yanks bust the regime : if the looneys in Tehran end fücking with Israel as a result of US inaction, the Jews won’t make a fuss, they will make the country a huge radioactive parking lot as they simply haven’t the means USA have to lead a conventional war and they’re not interested into losing many thousands of militaries because some idiotic mullahs are willing to strictly apply a stupid religious book calling… Read more »
