Iran vows to destroy the American navy

A top Iranian naval commander said that he is prepared to order suicide attacks, drone strikes, and missile technology to “destroy the U.S. Navy” in any upcoming confrontation, according to an interview printed in Iran’s state-run media.

Iranian Naval Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a member of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said that Iran is constantly training and preparing for a clash with the United States,according to a recounting of his remarks provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Fadavi revealed that Iran “compensates for its technological inferiority to the United States with a strategy of asymmetrical warfare, including suicide attacks and the use of speedboat and its missile capability,” according to MEMRI.

PACIFIC OCEAN (April 24, 2013) Two F/A-18E Super Hornets from the Tophatters of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 14 participate in an air power demonstration over the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). The John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group is returning from an eight-month deployment to the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of responsibility.

Stennis (CVN 74). The John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group is returning from an eight-month deployment to the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of responsibility.

Additionally, Fadavi revealed that on “at least” three occasions senior U.S. officials have contacted Iran to establish a telephone hot line like the one used between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War era.

Fadavi’s military threats come amid a massive military buildup by Iran, which claims to have duplicated and armed a downed U.S. drone and to have developed advanced ballistic missiles that could be capable of carrying a nuclear payload.


Fadavi additionally revealed in another interview earlier this month that the IRGC is preparing to use drones to perform suicide attacks and also arming drones to fire missiles.

While the United States possesses advanced military equipment, “these weapons are ineffective against a new [Iranian] strategy relying on faith, on a desire for martyrdom, and on [Iran‘s] unique speedboats,” Fadavi said.


Iran will “not allow the U.S. to act against it from its bases in the Persian Gulf countries,” according to Fadavi, who claimed that U.S. forces in the region are being careful “not to cause a flare-up in the region because they know that they will lose in any potential conflict with Iran,” according to MEMRI’s report on Fadavi’s remarks.

“U.S. naval forces in the region,” Fadavi claimed, “are obeying the orders of the IRGC” and “fear that Iranian vessels or missiles will target them.”


Iran maintains close conduct with its regional neighbors and will act to prevent the U.S. Navy from acting in the Persian Gulf, according to Fadavi.


Iran is also keeping a close eye on U.S. aircraft carriers, which a range of Iranian military officials have discussed destroying in recent weeks and months.


“The American aircraft carriers, which are the symbol of American military might, are under full oversight of the IRGC,” Fadavi was quoted as saying by MEMRI.


“The Americans and the rest of the world know that one of the IRGC navy’s operational goals is to destroy the U.S. Navy,” he said.


Fadavi additionally revealed that Iran has, “for many years now,” been building “models of American destroyers, cruisers, and frigates, and sinking them.”


“The Americans do not know most of the details, and their research institutes have presented very rough data regarding the scale models of aircraft carriers that we are building,” Fadavi said, adding that the Iranian navy can sink these duplicated U.S. ships “within 50 seconds.”

    Let’s be honest, the US could destroy Iran in a week with their Air Force alone. I actually wouldn’t mind a confrontation just to laugh at this guy.

      Keep underestimating Iran. Nothing like being the underdog. If the US weren’t so scared, they would have hit Iran long ago. Iran is continuing with it’s nuclear program despite all the threats and sanctions imposed on her. And every time one of the countries like the US, Britain or Israel threaten her because of the nuclear program, Iran responds with the big royal finger.

      According to the prophesy the Arab Muslims and the Romans will jointly attack Iran Iraq and a common enemy “beyond Constantinople” i.e. Possibly Russia. This event will take place after the “battle of Alexandria” when the Roman will invade Egypt through Alexandria and will be defeated twice and then they will offer a truce (Hudna) and together they will attack their common enemy Iran Iraq and possibly Russia. But the Romans will break the truce and attack the Muslims afterwards and invade Syria.

      If the Mahdi starts raining meteors on the US navy, then yes, it will be destroyed. Anything less than that and Iran will be on its knees in 2 weeks of conventional war. If the Iranians are stupid enough to use unconventional weapons then Iran will last 48 hours.

    4. American air force will be falling to the ground like flies when air defence forces launch its SAM missiles and fire their AA cannons at them

      “The more advanced enemy fighters grow, the more sophisticated and advanced the Iranian air defense will be,” Commander of the Eastern Zone of Iran’s Air Defense Malek Ali Asadifar

      I don’t need to list the AA cannons and missiles used by iran

      Irans air force and navy was upgraded by Russia and china along with Iraqi air planes that retreated to Iran during the American invasion of iraq

        US war planes are equipped with defense systems to shoot down missiles. Although they are not 100% successful, they will stop most. But if you say so. Also, Iran lacks any knowledge in these systems. But good luck.

        1. US planes can’t shoot down missiles they can only confuse the missiles with jamming and flares hoping it will not hit the plane but the shockwave of a explosion can still damage a plane if the plane is close to the explosion

          Iran also have a lot of modern AA cannons that can take down most aircrafts
          If Iran buys the Russian S-300 systems Irans air defense will become near impenetrable

            America does have antimissile rockets on many of their fighter jets. And I promise you they have many more stuff. America keeps its new weapons secret unlike Iran who continually boasts about stuff the US has had for years. This is how America continues to dominate the enemy.

          2. You know Iran has support from China and russia
            and recent russian actions in crimea and Syria show russia want stand by
            USA won Iraq and Libya becuase russia was silent
            Attacking Iran is like signing death wish of thousands of NATO troops

            Russia will boost its weapon sales to iran including the s-300 system that can take down stealth aircraft, Modernize the outdated navy ships, give they Anti-ship missiles to take down american ships from getting closer,Give them modernized T-72B, BMP, BTR armoured vehicles, New radars,
            Tor and Buk systems to take down helicopters,UAVs and Cruise missiles etc

    Beware…Iran can destroy America with their mouth.It is what they can do.

    1. AkhouManUki Avatar

      The only way Iran could destroy America with their mouth is if they ground it all up, mixed it in with Kubideih, skewered and BBQ’d till perfection. Hezbollah could help shove the kababs down everyones throats.

            Iran’s extremists forced the emigration of millions of “persians” who landed all across the globe to share the joy of kubideih – quite possibly the only benefit that has come from the revolution.

            No bright side for Iran, only for the communities abroad where Iranians have integrated. Except for the sleazy club owners, they can go back 🙂

            Iran is beautiful – I visited 12 years ago and fell in love with Shiraz. Iranians deserve a better government to go with their beautiful country, just like we do in Lebanon.

      Another Yank with a stuck up attitude who thinks he is above the rest. Keep underestimating Iran my friend, Keep thinking you are the almighty USA. However remember, if history has taught us anything it is that every super power who harms others (like the US has done so many times past and present) will eventually fall, and fall hard. So strap yourself in for that up and coming bumpy ride.

    I will describe the scenario incase of a war ignited between Mighty USA and Big mouth Iran

    it will be like the Movie Independence day aliens VS Earth ( theoretically describing)

    Iranians will be facing an Extraterrestrial advanced and Superior military power in a way they won’t even realize the Check mate and that game would be over in less than 48 hours.. i say 48 hours not because USA needs the time to wipe out the entire Iranian primitive war machine but because it will be a chance for USA to test New horrible weapons against the Revolutionary Guards and Iranian fish boats navy. People it is a humiliation to even think to compare or imagine a war between USA AND IRAN it will be a humiliation for USA. it’s like comparing a UFO military Arsenal with the Comoros Islands army. now we all know that Iran always faked weird weapons and pretended to have high tech arsenal which was always fake and Cartoon . USA can destroy IRANIAN big mouth Rambo’s in 12 hours even less. by just hitting them with Tomahawk missiles, and Navy’s New Rail-gun that Can Hurl a Shell Over 5000 MPH this would evaporate any target before it even hits it. and about the Funny Iranian Speed boats suicide Alla alla akbar thing. USA navy can simply use the Hydra ( it does exist) and those poor iranian suiciders will have a second thought once they face the A-10 Thunderbolt II and AH-64 Apaches that will be waiting for them like an XBOX 360 game (Mark and destroy) dudes USA is supreme The strongest nation on planet earth and you want to compare it to IRAN?? is this is a joke or something?
