"Commander of the Navy of the Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran broke the news about the plans for the presence of this force in the Atlantic Ocean and said that the same way that the world arrogant power is present near our marine borders, we, with the help of our sailors who follow the concept of the supreme jurisprudence, shall also establish a powerful presence near the marine borders of the United States,"
Does he really think their navy can even come close to comparing to the US navy/marines?

He says they're going to make direct contact with the US. That may be true but it won't be the way he thinks and will involve explosions and Iranian ships sinking.

Well it is more a political statement since it says they will be outside US borders like we have done with them before. Still, the comparison just made be laugh, especially the "powerful" part (when referring to their marine force).

Some of the articles I've read imply that Iran wants to dock it's ships at our ports.
