Where Is This Bad Boy Going?

Posted June 7th, 2011 by Iron Mike

Which navy operates this submarine, and where is it going?

 

And why should you care?

This is one of four (4) Russian-built Kilo Class submarines operated by the Iranian Navy.

Today Iran is making naval history – they’re sending one of them into the Red Sea.

Why should you care? Because their short-range missiles can reach the Suez Canal, Mecca, and Medina.

Do you think that the Muslim Brotherhood – now quietly taking over in Egypt – might soon let them through the Suez Canal?

Remember that the ruling elite in Iran are ‘Twelvers‘ – people who believe that Salvation can only come when the full fury of the final Armageddon is upon them, and the ‘Twelfth Imam” – the ‘Hidden Imam’ is revealed to them.

In other words,  these suicidal fools believe that if they start a nuclear war – they’ll get to Heaven.

Meanwhile by sending a main-line submarine into the Red Sea they threaten the choke point called the Gate of Tears, and the shipping in the narrow waters of the Red Sea. They also threaten their hated Saudi Arabian neighbors. They ALSO threaten all US Navy ships transitioning the Red Sea.

With this long-range training mission they’re making a very bold statement.

They also have a fleet of eleven (11) home-made coastal submarines – ideal for operating in the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf.

As you can see, President Ahmadinejad takes significant interest in his submarine fleet.

Eleven of these quiet little midgets can pretty much shut down our operations in the Persian Gulf. All they have to do to start Holy Hell – is sink one of our super-carriers.

So who does Obama send to reason with these guys – Biden? Kerry? Hillary?

Oh,  good chance that by next summer – right before our elections, Iran will have their first nuke. What do you think they’ll do with it? And with their second one?

    Where’s the pink one?

    The lovely colors are chosen to mimick the coloration of the undersea region of operations and avoid simple airborne detection.

    The first Iranian sub in the E. Med will likely be the last one. Worry not, or at least don’t worry much.
