IRAN SAYS IT HAS FULL CONTROL OF GULF, U.S. NAVY DOES NOT BELONG THERE

(Reuters) - Iran has full control of the Gulf and the U.S. Navy does not belong there, the head of the navy of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, General Alireza Tangsiri, was quoted by Tasnim news agency as saying on Monday.

Tehran has suggested it could take military action in the Gulf to block other countries’ oil exports in retaliation for U.S. sanctions intended to halt its sales of crude. Washington maintains a fleet in the Gulf that protects oil shipping routes.

Tangsiri said Iran had full control of the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz that leads into it. Closing the strait would be the most direct way of blocking shipping.

“We can ensure the security of the Persian Gulf and there is no need for the presence of aliens like the U.S. and the countries whose home is not in here,” he said in the quote, which appeared in English translation on Tasnim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Tangsiri, a word, please: should Iran do this, the US government will use such an action as the "justification" for war against your country, and retaliate, with full military force, against Iran.

In fact, sir, such an action is something the US government would love to see your country do.
