Iran is preparing to send a flotilla of warships to the Atlantic Ocean following the announcement of a massive $500 million investment in war spending, according to Iranian leaders, who say the military moves are in response to recent efforts by the United States to impose a package of new economic sanctions on Tehran.


Iranian lawmakers reportedly shouted "death to America" as they passed the measure, which boosts spending to Iran's contested missile programs by around $260 million

1. How well could they support them?

2. What friends do they have the area outside of Cuba and Venezuela?

3. Why am I getting a vision of the Russian Baltic fleet and Dogger Bank?

Sounds like a good opportunity for targeting practice for our SSNs.
