Iran starts navy drills in Strait of Hormuz -IRNA

OrlandoSentinel.com -- Iran started on Friday six days of naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz, the official IRNA news agency reported, maneuvers aimed at showcasing its military capabilities in what is a vital oil and gas shipping route.

Naval commander Habibollah Sayyari said the "Velayat 91" drills would last until Wednesday across an area of about 1 million square kilometers in the Strait of Hormuz, the Gulf of Oman and northern parts of the Indian Ocean, IRNA said.

Sayyari said the goal of the maneuvers were to show "the armed forces' military capabilities" in defending Iran's borders as well as sending a message of peace and friendship to neighboring countries.

What a great opportunity to test some torpedoes out and to see how well their compartmentalization damage control is working for them.

Fiscal cliff is at hand and the Iranians know it! What better to sucker the Americans into another costly regional conflict. A regional conflict that is not necessary, as N. America is not really reliant anymore on mid-east energy!
China and possibly Russia will not stand for the Strait of Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman to be tied up with military conflict as this would hurt them probably more economically and strategically!
Basically posturing to their own people.

With this sort of stuff going on it’s a good thing the war mongers were not elected. I would sure hate to have a MadDogUSMC in the White House getting us into yet another needless war. Ditto for OGW.

“. . . sending a message of peace and friendship to neighboring countries.”

Ummmmmmm, it does not sound so peaceful and friendly to me. Still, just a bunch of posturing that will push up the price of oil but little other effect.

Who cares! Let them waste their money showing off to people that are ignoring them! Like we need to be involved in something else...especially since we have a wussy, with no military experience or actual support of the military, as a Commander in Chief!

Saber rattling or a real threat? If our neighbors in the Middle East wait for Iran to have nuclear capability it will be too late and we'll likely be pulled into huge military conflict if not all out World War III!

If we can have our drills they can have their drills. Little or not, we don't own them -- none of our business. Let NATO deal with them. We have debts to pay for 10 years of 'undeclared war', tired and injured military force. So before you brake a glass, make sure you can afford to pay for it. BS attitude will get you nowhere but headaches, heartaches, lost loved ones, PSTD, suicide of one-a-day soldier, etc. Everyone pays for it especially the soldiers and their families -- so don't go singing the 'war' song unless you are planning to be in the front lines and you have $$ to pay for your weaponry and then some; stop borrowing from other nations like China. This is one of main reasons why we are in so much debt.

Nuke the suckers. I'll bet they will cause an international incident and make it appear as though the American Navy has either done it or caused it. It's just a matter of time. Just nuke em and get it over with.
