US Releases Iranian Guard Confrontation Video & Threatening Audio

The US Navy released video and audio on Tuesday that confirmed the explosive threats made by the Iranian regime against the US ships in the Strait of Hormuz –Herald Sun.

Here is the threatening audio by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats that the US Navy released Tuesday:

Iranian Fars News said it was just an “ordinary incident” with US ships…
That is before the audiotape was released.
The Iranian voice on the audiotape says:

“I am coming to you… You will explode in a few minutes.


PERSIAN GULF (Jan. 6, 2008) Small craft suspected to be from the Islamic Republic of Iran Revolutionary Guard Navy (IRGCN), maneuver aggressively in close proximity of the U.S. Navy Aegis-class cruiser USS Port Royal (CG 73), Aegis-class destroyer USS Hopper (DDG 70) and frigate USS Ingraham (FFG 61). All three ships were steaming in formation and had just completed a routine Strait of Hormuz transit. Coalition vessels, including U.S. Navy ships, routinely operate in the vicinity of both Islamic Republic of Iran Navy and IRGCN vessels and aircraft, without incident. U.S. (US Navy photo)

The US released the video of the confrontation between the Iranian Guard and US Ships in the Strait of Hormuz this past weekend.
The BBC reported:

The US military has released video and audio recordings of Iranian boats that it says threatened to blow up US Navy vessels in the Strait of Hormuz.

The jerky footage, shot from one of the three US ships, shows several small boats approaching at high speed.

US President George W Bush described the stand-off as “provocative”, adding that it was a “dangerous situation” that should not have happened.

The BBC video of the confrontation is HERE.
