TEHRAN, Iran –  Iran launched a domestically built destroyer in the Caspian Sea on Sunday, its first deployment of a major warship in the oil-rich region, state TV reported.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad inaugurated the guided missile destroyer Jamaran-2 in the port city of Anzali, about 150 miles northwest of Tehran.The 1,400-ton destroyer, which has a helicopter landing pad, is 94 meters (yards) long and can cruise at 30 knots. It is equipped with surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles as well as anti-aircraft batteries and sophisticated radar and communications terminals, the report said.

What is this going to mean to the U.S. and Israel?

With tensions being at their highest point in a great while, we only look for this to escalate in the next upcoming weeks.  With President Obama scheduled to visit Israel and to figure out a strategic method to haul Iran’s nuclear ambitions this is going to prove to be an interesting turn of events with the passing of each and every day.
