    Yes, our respectable and venerable ayatollahs blow winds here and there, but beware of the storm of Ramadan: in May there will be served plenty of bean plates!

    The US Military respects Iran’s Naval Forces….One Admiral was quoted as saying,” these vessels are going to make one heck of an artificial reef!”.

    Try that crap and hold naval personnel hostage like you did under Obama several years ago and see what happens now under the present administration. The Secretary of State won’t be kissing your A$$ like Kerry did.

    What happens when swarming Iranian speed boats meet up with swarming U.S. drones? Of course this assumes that the U.S. uses drones equipped to stave off electronic jamming.

    Iran has much better personal flotation devices, only natural eco rubber, not flimsy plastic!
    America should give up and bow to sharia, if not Iranian Navy will float better and longer.
