(Worthy News) - Iran's new naval commander has vowed to send warships to America's backyard.
Rear Adm. Hossein Khanzadi said plans were being drawn up for vessels to be deployed to the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean "in the near future." They would also visit South American countries, he added.
Tehran has long complained about U.S. ships being based in the Persian Gulf.
