Washington Plays Down Iranian Navy’s Threats

Mounted cannon pictured aboard an Iranian warshipThe United States has played down Saturday’s reports that Iran was sending warships to its maritime borders. A U.S. defense official, speaking to the Reuters news agency on condition of anonymity, cast doubt on any claims that the Iranian ships were approaching U.S. maritime borders. That same official added, however, that “ships are free to operate in international waters.” Earlier, the semiofficial Iranian Fars news agency quoted the Commander of Iran’s Northern Navy Fleet Admiral as having claimed that “the Iranian Army’s naval fleets have already started their voyage towards the Atlantic Ocean via the waters near South Africa.” “Iran’s military fleet is approaching the United States’ maritime borders, and this move has a message,” he claimed. The report could not be independently verified, but it is not the first time that Iran has threatened the United States militarily. In fact, earlier Saturday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards threatened that its drones and missiles could hit American warships in the Persian Gulf. Iran has previously threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic waterway leading to the Persian Gulf, in response to American military presence there.

One Response to Washington Plays Down Iranian Navy’s Threats

  1. Unfortunately, another world war is inevitable, like death, but not yet. This follows from the analysis of the biblical prophecies. Let me remind here a fragment of an ancient vision: “And [the king of the north] will go back (to) his land with great wealth [1945. This detail indicated that Hitler will attack also the Soviet Union and will fight to the bitter end. In the beginning there were no signs of such the ending of this war]; and his heart (will be) against the holy covenant [hostility towards Christians]; and will act [it means activity in the international arena]; and turned back to his own land [1991-1993. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Russian troops returned to their country]. At the appointed time [he] will return back.” (Daniel 11:28, 29a, literal translation) The return of Russia in this context means crisis, which will eclipse the Great Depression. Not only the eurozone will break up, but also the European Union and NATO. Then many countries of the former Eastern block will return to Russia’s zone of influence. Russian troops will be stationed here again.

    Russia, however, will not return everywhere. “And [the king of the north] will enter into the south [Georgia], but it will not be as the former [1921] or as the latter [2008], for the dwellers of coastlands of Kittim [USA, in the beginning without Britain] will come against him, and he will be dejected, and will go back.” (Daniel 11:29b, 30a, literal translation)

    What will induce the “king of the north” to enter into the south? Jesus said: “For nation will rise against nation”, as in 2008, and then …

    Moses writes: “But ships from the direction of Kittim [US Navy], and will afflict Asshur [Russia] and will afflict Eber [remaining enemies, including Iran and China].” (Numbers 24:24a).

    This will be a nuclear war. (Revelation 6:4) “A great sword” in this context means a nuclear sword. As Jesus foretold, it will be “the beginning of birth pains”. (Mathew 24:7, 8)

    All the details of this vision are being fulfilled from the time of ancient Persia, in chronological order. It is true that this vision is variously interpreted. As one can see, it has a lot of details. Therefore the insightful person is able to detect any error or sophistry. (Daniel 12:10)

    In 1882 British troops occupied Egypt. Great Britain then took the role of “the king of the south”. Around the same time, Russia expanded its influence in the region, which previously belonged to Seleucus I Nicator, and took the role of “the king of the north”. (Daniel 11:27)
