Iran Starts Massive Drill in Persian Gulf, Sea of Oman

Iran Starts Massive Drill in Persian Gulf, Sea of Oman thumbnail

Iranian naval forces on Friday started a massive three-day drill, codenamed “Velayat 97”, in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman.

The drill is being held in an area of two million square kilometers, from the Strait of Hormuz to the southeastern coasts of Makran, the Sea of Oman and the northern parts of the Indian Ocean, down to the 10-degrees latitude.

The war game is composed of four separate phases, including naval parades, simulation of a real naval war, maritime and land offense to practice recapturing the territories occupied by the enemy, and the display of the Navy’s power by launching various types of missiles and torpedoes, Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said Thursday.

For the first time, the Iranian navy is to fly patrol, reconnaissance and bomber drones during the drill, he added. Submarines will launch missiles in the drill for the first time, and anti-submarine helicopters will also land on and take off from the deck of Sahand destroyer, Tasnim news agency reported.

Electronic warfare tactics and electronic data transmission from the coast are among other parts of the exercise, he said.

The drill comes a couple of months after IRGC forces, including a brigade from the IRGC Navy, held the country’s first offensive war game, named Great Prophet 12, near the Qeshm Island in Persian Gulf.

The Ground Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps holds the final stage of drills in the Persian Gulf, launching an “offensive” component in the country’s defensive strategy.

Earlier this month, the Iranian Navy’s deputy commander had declared the forces would hold two weeks of drills in the Indian Ocean in late February.

“In these exercises, we will display the Islamic Republic’s power in the region with the aim of establishing security,” he noted.

    I thought they were drilling for oil.

    Once the uS dollar is finally abandoned by the world community, or its use is restricted to an ever shrinking circle of its most loyal satraps and puppets states, then Iran wont need to worry so much about defending itself from the Jewnited Snakes, or its navy anymore.

    No uS dollar = no uS Navy perma-camped just off Irans shores, or anyone shores for that matter.

    Until that day comes, and the mad dog amerikans are restricted to bullying and browbeating my country, Mexico, and a few assorted weak Central and South American nations that cant fight back, yeah, practice, a lot.

    Soon the US will be restricted to toothless threats. Wait! That day is already here! Proof? Syria! Four years and still losing. Seven if you count the attempt to overthrow him by a color revolution that also failed. And how many years in Afghanistan? Decades?

    “Assad Must Go! But, he is still there. It is the US that is going. Russia and China blocked the imperial dream. The same two will back Iran if the US is stupid enough to invade. But then, insanity and delusions are common inside the beltway.

    We shall see. We live in “interesting” times. Pass the popcorn.

    LOL, yea makato and holding what a bunch of cities in ruin? Russia has a nation to subsidize. China never even got in the game what are you talking about?

    Empire dave gloats about the suffering his terrorist club has inflicted on that old nation. Fact remains that his Terror Club ain’t in the position to “project much power” any more. Dead as a brick. And everybody took notice. Defeated by a “gasoline station, masquerading as a nation” (John McCain, may he rot in hell).

    Cloggie, delusional Davy, the Missouri Jackass, has nothing to brag about except his “exceptional/indispensable” terrorist organization called America. Not so exceptional or indispensable these days.

    Exceptional debt, drug deaths and suicides, not to mention a declining life expectancy. Number one in incarcerated citizens. Way down the list in anything that counts like education and healthcare.

    Indispensable? Nope! The world is learning that it is better off without the US. The sooner it goes down, the better for humanity. Isolation is in the US’ future, if not total destruction. We shall see.

    In Britain the situation is warming up in every imaginable way…

    It may be Feb 23, but here is the weather forecast: 70F or 21C:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6733361/Thick-blanket-fog-causes-flight-cancellations-hot-weather-sets-in.html

    We should be skating on the canals in Holland but instead we will be sipping coffee on the cafe terrace in the sun. I’m flirting with planning my next vacation in Norway this year.

    In politics the May government is on the verge of collapse, now that several ministers have announced they won’t support a no-deal Brexit under no circumstance. May has said she won’t support a Brexit delay, exposing her to accusations that she is owned by the hard Brexiteers:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6735419/PM-mass-walkout-three-senior-ministers-signal-theyre-ready-help-delay-Brexit.html

    In parliament there is a large majority against no-deal, but May’s “red lines”, as well as Jeremy Corbyn and his “let’s-throw-Britain-in-the-abyss-so-I-can-rule-XXL-Albania/Albion”, currently make Britain steering towards no-deal by default. May has one week to organize a deal, if she fails (and she likely will), parliament will side-track government and take over government. It’s going to be slaughter, with British politics left in a Dresden-1945 state, with both Labour and Tories split up. Reaction from Brussels: “are we powerful or what?”. It is even possible that the UK will be forced to participate in the upcoming EU-elections in May.lol

    Again, in the interest of the overthrow of the upcoming US empire and salvation of the white race in the last moment, the best scenario is where Britain is removed from the European political decision process, so they no longer can block rapprochement with Russia, but remains an economic vassal of Brussels, so they won’t be used as unsinkable US aircraft carrier if the right-insurrection in the US would fail and the darkies carry away the victory over the whiteys once and for all. Promise them Anglo-Canada and NE-USA to play empire with after WW3/CW2.

    Next wait for the inevitable, when China no longer can avoid a confrontation with the US about who is the planetary #1, when China realizes she IS the strongest and can push back the US from the western Pacific.

    Aljazeera doc about The Lobby in Britain,

    “Friends of Israel”

    https://www.aljazeera.com/investigations/thelobby/

    Al Jazeera Investigations exposes how the Israel lobby influences British politics. A six-month undercover investigation reveals how Israel penetrates different levels of British democracy.

    Episode One: In part one, Al Jazeera Investigations reveals how pro-Israel groups are trying to influence Britain’s youth.

    Episode Two: In part two, our undercover reporter joins a delegation from the Israeli embassy at last year’s Labour Party Conference.

    Episode Three: In part three, our undercover reporter witnesses a heated conversation between two opposing activists. The evidence raises serious questions about whether accusations of anti-Semitism are used to stifle political debate.

    Episode Four: In part four, the senior political officer at the Israeli embassy in London discusses a potential plot to ‘take down’ British politicians – including a minister.

    One of the reasons why I am relatively upbeat about Europe is that the imported Muslims are deeply “anti-semitic” (term between quotes because the Muslims themselves are the real Semites where the Jews are Khazar Turks). This French Jew Finkielkraut understands what is coming and has become adamant against immigration, because “it is not good for the Jews”:

    White insurrections continues, will eventually turn against empire.

    “Empire dave gloats about the suffering his terrorist club has inflicted on that old nation”

    Putin even admitted Assad family made some mistakes governing that country. Syria allowed a civil war to happen. The US and its dirty euro allies did the rest.

  14. Davy on Sat, 23rd Feb 2019 4:43 am 

    Indispensable? Nope! The world is learning that it is better off without the US.

    makato, the US is too big to fail for the global system. The same is true with China and Europe. You and binary clogg are too wrapped up in emotional agenda to understand this reality and a little bit lacking on grey matter.

  15. makati1 on Sat, 23rd Feb 2019 5:19 am 

    Too Big To Fail! What arrogance! The “Exceptional/indispensable” bullshit from the Missouri Jackass, braying his brainwashing to the world that doesn’t give a damn what he thinks.

    YOU are the emotional one, Delusional Davy. You got your name for your delusional view of the US and the world. Your bloody support of your baby killing terrorist country. I’m sure the Romans thought the same thing as their world collapsed around them. Be patient. The 3rd world is fast approaching the 50 states if debt.

    BTW: Trying to putdown the messenger does NOT change the message, goat farmer.

    Saturday evening here. Going to a party in town. Pinoy friends that work in Japan are back for a visit. About 78 degrees and the frogs are croaking. The perfect end to a beautiful day. Have a great day guys!

    go to bed idiot you need your sleep. Mr mental illness is not here to protect you.

    Liar. A civil war was enforced upon Syria by the US, Turkey, Qatar, KSA.

    Assad-Syria didn’t want a civil war, but were forced to fight one and almost lost, until Vlad the Great intervened.

    Now Iran, not KSA is the most dominant country in the ME. Turkey plays a double role here. Officially ally of the US, but the real motivation is the reestablishment of the Ottoman empire, using the US as useful idiot and icebreaker. Just like the Taliban used the US as useful idiot when they volunteered to kick the Soviets out of Afghanistan, provided the US gave them the weapons. Muslims (Taliban, Turks) are proud people and want to govern themselves and don’t act as a proxy for the West, unless fabulous wealth is awaiting them from oil.

    “dirty euro allies”

    Played a minor role. Major US c*ck sucker Holland for instance delivered Toyota pick-up trucks to the “moderate Jihadists”.

    The “dirty euro allies” will be treated just like the vassals of the crumbling Soviet empire…

    …if they don’t make it in time to South-America, like Erich Honecker of the GDR:

    https://documents1940.wordpress.com/2017/09/29/liebe-gruse-aus-santiago-de-chile/

    What we see happening with the Yellow Vests in France en Pegida in Germany is the western European equivalent of the demonstrations in Eastern Europe.

    Trump, like Gorbachev, is the undertaker of empire.

    The USSR fell apart in 15 pieces.
    The US will fall apart in probably less than that. this is how America will fall apart according to James Howard Kunstler:

    Delusional clogged, so you are saying the history that was the brutal Assad regime had nothing to do with it? You are saying that the Arab spring and the awakening of the Sunni majority had nothing to do with it? LOL what a dumbass with an emotional agenda. I am not like you and your hilarious binary emotional attachments. I don’t deny the reality that the Eurotards and Americans exploited a situation. I am saying Assad created the opportunity for this with a failed brutal arrangement that lasted 30 plus years. Get a grip stupid, your history is clouded by your one track mind.

    Multicult shitholes like Syria CAN only be held together with a solid, ruthless dictator. Iraq and Yugoslavia, same story. Will apply soon to the US as well. Good luck with your emerging police state.

    But you don’t understand anything, you prefer to bite in the propaganda, served by those who want to phase you out from history.

  21. Davy on Sat, 23rd Feb 2019 8:32 am 

    “Multicult shitholes like Syria CAN only be held together with a solid, ruthless dictator. Iraq and Yugoslavia, same story.”

    Nice to see you are admitting to your mistaken position. Sometimes you do that and don’t even realize it.
