Iranian Navy Exercises in International Waters

Hoping to improve of their performances since the Battle of Salamis, the Iranian navy is is holding exercises just outside the Strait of Hormuz.

Iran's navy has begun a 10-day drill in international waters beyond the strategic Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, the passageway for about a third of the world's oil tanker traffic.
The exercise could bring Iranian ships into proximity with U.S. Navy vessels in the area.
Navy chief Adm. Habibollah Sayyari says Iran is holding the war games to show off its prowess and defense capabilities. State TV broadcast his comments on Saturday.

No real significance to the present, but back in the 1970s, before the shah was overthrown, there were quite a few Iranian students enrolled in NROTC at various colleges.

As Americans, we have turned exercise into a "four letter word". The benefits are extensive, so why do we avoid it like the plague? It has been proven that exercise has a profound effect on our overall health. In this article, you can read about these benefits and the impact that adding exercise into your daily routine can have. Less than 1% of the American population exercise as regularly or for as long during each session as is required to be in their best state of health. You can become of the "elite" in the United States by making some simple changes in your daily routine and incorporating a consistent exercise program into your life!

^^^ Yay! Spamming Ass-clowns! Woohoo! Hey look fartcatcher, if you're just gonna spam-bomb blogs, look for more than just keywords, because the kind of "exercise" we're talking about is being run by a country whose name is a four-letter word: Iran. And if you think that "Iran" is just a subject and a verb, as in "I ran away from that blog so fast before they could kick my ass that my feet are burning"
