Love the sunglasses, you know it bears an uncanny resemblance to a certain Scottish Actor, do you think he is the actually mastermind?

 

But of course, Mrs. Pedecaris!

SANAA, Yemen (AP) -- Iran dispatched a naval destroyer and another vessel Wednesday to waters near Yemen as the United States quickened weapons supply to the Saudi-led coalition striking rebels there, underlining how foreign powers are deepening their involvement in the conflict.

Iran's English-language state broadcaster Press TV quoted Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari as saying the ships would be part of an anti-piracy campaign "safeguarding naval routes for vessels in the region."

The US has condemned a recent medium range ballistic missile test by Iran as a "clear violation" of UN sanctions and a sign of the country's disregard for its international obligations.

The nuclear weapons-capable missile was launched on 10 October.

US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power said that her country was "deeply concerned" by the test firing.

“Our warships will soon berth at ports in the Atlantic Ocean,” Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari promised at a ceremony on Wednesday marking the return to port of Iranian warships that Fars said had taken part in joint drills with the Russian navy.

Sayyari made a similar pledge to deploy warships in the Atlantic in early 2014. At the time, Iran promised to send its fleet close to American maritime borders as a counter to the US navy’s presence in the Gulf. But in April, the navy chief said the move had been canceled “due to a change in schedule.”

The Iranian Navy will soon be sending a force to visit Latin America and the Gulf of Mexico, a newly-appointed naval commander has said. The move will be a demonstration of the country’s ability to project power far beyond its shores.

In his first press conference in Tehran since being appointed, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said that Iranian naval forces will cross the Atlantic, stopping at friendly South American countries, before flying the Iranian flag in the Gulf of Mexico, local media reported on Wednesday.

In 2014, Iran announced that it was sending its vessels to the Gulf of Mexico, located between the eastern coast of Mexico and the southern American states of Texas, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. The intention was to protest the constant US naval presence in the Persian Gulf, the US Navy 5th fleet’s Bahrain base having occasionally led to confrontations.

Ship being built in Iran looks like U.S. aircraft carrier

WASHINGTON

 

Iran is building a nonworking mock-up of an American nuclear-powered aircraft carrier that U.S. officials say may be intended to be blown up for propaganda value.

 

Intelligence analysts studying satellite photos of Iranian military installations first noticed the vessel rising from the Gachin shipyard, near Bandar Abbas on the Persian Gulf, last summer. The ship has the same distinctive shape and style of the Navy’s Nimitz-class carriers, as well as the aircraft carrier Nimitz’s No. 68 neatly painted in white near the bow. Mock aircraft can be seen on the flight deck.

 

The Iranian mock-up, which U.S. officials described as more like a barge than a warship, has no nuclear propulsion system and is only about two-thirds the length of a typical 1,100-foot-long Navy carrier. Intelligence officials do not believe that Iran is capable of building an actual aircraft carrier.

 

 

Any news on the Iranian movie prop? Have they sold it to Bollywood yet?
