US military forces must leave the Persian Gulf region “before any problem arises,” a top Iranian military official warned, the regime-aligned news agency Tasnim reported on Tuesday.

“What has been in place in the Persian Gulf for years and has not changed is the powerful presence and intelligence supremacy (of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, the commander of the Revolutionary Guards Corps Navy, reportedly said in remarks at a ceremony in the southern Iranian port city of Bushehr.

According to the report, Fadavi criticized the US Navy’s presence in the Persian Gulf, claiming that over the past three decades America has “been the cause of insecurity on regional waters.”

    Iran is just a proxy for Obama. I will keep reiterating this until it sticks. Obama must destroy America because of its Judeo Christian roots and must destroy Israel because Israel is ground Zero for A God Obama is warring against. Obamas root is in hell and Israels roots are in heaven. This is extremely problematic for Obama, he wants to bring hell to earth. That’s why he is lined up on the wrong side of everything anything which has stability he must destroy if it’s not lined up with his form of helter skelter. He has four months in which either his proxies or he will create a catastrophe on such a scale he will attempt to take the reins of the American military with the help of the liberal moon bats for the sole reason of attempting to destroy Israel by collateral damage as he is claiming to be battling forces that are coming against the U.S. Remember he has legions of demons in his mind strategizing for him and America is being lead by a congress that believes demons are popycock. Our congress will never see the fin in the water until it’s to late.
