Iranian Naval Admiral: ‘If Needed, We Can Move to Within Three Miles of New York’

Daily Caller Reports: The Islamic Republic of Iran said it has the ability to position  a naval vessel within three miles of the East Coast of the United States.

“The power of our naval forces is such that we have a presence in all the  waters of the world and, if needed, we can move to within three miles of New  York,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said Tuesday during a speech to the students of  the University of Yazd in Iran. His remarks were quoted by an Iranian student news agency.

This naval saber rattling represents a stark escalation in Iran’s war  rhetoric, as the West weighs the question of whether to impose new economic  sanctions or directly attack the Islamic regime’s illicit nuclear  facilities.

“The Americans’ only tool to rule the world is their naval dominance of the  Persian Gulf,” Fadavi added, “and they will face any other power that threatens  their status.”
