Iran has signaled its readiness to use its “secret” weaponry in order to sink US warships which were earlier delivered to the Persian Gulf region.

“America […] is sending two warships to the region. If they commit the slightest stupidity, we will send these ships to the bottom of the sea along with their crew and planes using two missiles or two new secret weapons,” General Morteza Qorbani, an adviser to Iran’s military command, told the semi-official Iranian news agency Mizan.

The statement comes amid mounting US-Iran tensions which exacerbated earlier this month, when the US imposed more anti-Iran sanctions and sent an aircraft carrier strike group, a squadron of B-52 bombers and a battery of Patriot missiles to the Middle East.

Iran, for its part, suspended some of its obligations under the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Meanwhile, 76 retired US generals, admirals and ambassadors have signed an open letter to US President Donald Trump, urging him against instigating a war with the Islamic Republic.

“A war with Iran, either by choice or miscalculation, would produce dramatic repercussions in the already-destabilized Middle East and drag the United States into another armed conflict at immense financial, human, and geopolitical cost,” the letter reads.

The letter comes after Trump said that Washington would deploy some 1,500 additional troops to the Middle East. The US President, however, said earlier that Washington hoped that the situation would not come to war.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, for his part, underscored that Tehran does not intend to wage war with the US, but will continue to resist Washington.

US-Iran tensions sparked in May 2018, when Washington unilaterally withdrew from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, also reinstating sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

On 8 May, 2019, Iran announced its own decision to partially discontinue its obligations under the nuclear agreement.

Tehran gave the other signatories 60 days to ensure that Iran’s interests were protected under the agreement; otherwise, the Islamic Republic is ready to take further steps on scrapping the deal.

Totally internal message.

To win a war it takes more than the capability to sink a ship.

If the Iran discontinue the deal with the remaining signatories the US have achieved their goal and the current deal is dead.

Good thing for The Great Iran who makes every hypocrite such as usa, israhell, britain…etc, wet their pants with yesterday’s digested used to be food when they think about Her. And you said it right, Iran Too Broke to ‘Fund Terror Groups’ after Sanctions because Iran never fund or ever funded terror groups but FREEDOM FIGHTERS unless if you are brainwashed and retarded to think otherwise. The only terror funders are your western brothers who go around causing carnage, misery, strife, death….just like in the South Americas, Africa, Middle East in the their stupid reasoning of bringing democracy to other… Read more »

Errr, can you remind us what city or town is in the Daeshbags control? And let me laugh, ISIS was created by Iran as a sacrificial useful idiot to have the West liquidate Sunni resistance in Iraq. Everybody, I mean really everybody : the West, N-African countries, Russia, China, central+east Asia and even Arabia monarchies took profit of the situation : they made the roaches believe they could win through a low intensity conflict strategy… When enough radicalised morons had moved to the shitlamic state, baited like roaches are by the scent of a Trap-a-Roach, well, this is what happened… Read more »

You are telling lies Daeshbags- and you suck for sure. ISIS was created by your western brothers with your brother from another country, Saudi Arabia. Iran is Shia and Daesh/ISIS (the product of US senator John Mccain – May his soul rest in eternal h**l). ISIS was created to fight the All The Great Warriors of freedom who form the AXIS OF RESISTANCE against your western brothers’ greed and stupidity

@Abu bakr, IS is defeated.

The Islamic State lost all territory.

Only some fugitive guerrilla are still on the run.

There’s even a Haddith predicting that the world would end rejecting Islam because of its violence (sorry, I lost the reference), nevertheless, if you read Coran while having good knowledge of history and other human sciences, you can only conclude that the seeds of self-destruction are planted in, you can’t miss the parallel with the Hittite Empire. Another point, you follow strictly this book, you become a killing machine. Another Haddith says… “It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange… Read more »
