Iran Test Fires Two Long-Range Missiles Into Mouth Of Indian Ocean Where Two US Aircraft Carriers Are Situated

Naval_Update_07_06_11_800_0.jpg

Today for the first time, Iran's IRNA news agency reported that the country had fired two missiles with a range of 1,900 km, coupled with TV coverage, into the mouth of the Indian Ocean. As PressTV reports, "Commander of the Aerospace Division of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Ali Hajizadeh said that the long-range missiles were fired in the Iranian calendar month of Bahman (January 21 to February 20). He said that the missiles, fired from central Iran towards the Indian Ocean, successfully hit its designated targets, IRNA reported Saturday. Hajizadeh said that Iran's missiles have a range of up to 2,000 kilometers, adding that “Iran has the ability to produce longer-ranged ones (missiles) but presently there is no need to produce them." The purpose of the test firing was all too clear: "Our desired targets and the country's threatening us are located well within the reach [of our missiles]," he said. In other words: any US-based invasion of Iran will most certainly see prompt retaliation against US national-interests in the region. This is especially concerning since the US currently has two aircraft carriers, amusingly the Bush and the Reagan, both sitting side by side at the straits of Hormuz, with LHD 4 boxer backing up the rear in a zone that is now quite explosive. Had these test firings been perceived by a provocation, and lately it appears that the US is actively seeking one, it may have been quite a mess.

This might me just the rumor

This might be just the cia generated rumor mill, but I'll still take the bait;  before getting outraged about Iran test firing some rockets from their own turf ask yourself who the agressor is. What the hell are amrikan ships doing on the other side of the world. Get the hell out and don't tread on me.

That is what I thought too.

That is what I thought too. Nothing like a little propaganda to fuel the fire. Well, the ships were there for the Syrian problem I thought? LOL.
