    The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) threatened to "drown" any US warships approaching Iran, a top general said Tuesday, according to state-controlled media.

    “We have informed Americans that their presence in the Persian Gulf is an absolute evil,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi stated to state media. “Americans are aware that Iran would destroy their warships if they take a wrong measure in the region.”

    He further threatened that the US would "lose control of everything" by drawing others into Middle-East affairs.

    "There has never been normal conditions in the Persian Gulf and Americans can feel the presence of IRGC navy forces at any spot,” he added. “Iran’s great power has forced US to consider creation of deterrent capabilities.”

    I don't even know how to respond to this article. Our dear friends, the Iranians, who we just removed sanctions from, and now they're threatening us.

    Of course, after that idiot from the Navy surrendered his crew, I guess we should have expected more saber rattling.

    If they do sink a vessel and everybody aboard this administration will no doubt issue an apology stating that we are sorry we forced them to do it.

    When we we grow a new spine?
