Iran has once again made threats against the United States which need not be taken lightly by those in Washington.

(INTELLIHUB) — A well-known adviser to Iran’s military command says Iran will strike U.S. warship in the region using a new “secret weapon” if provoked by western “stupidity” as tensions mount between the leadership of the United States and Iran over the botched Obama Administration uranium deal and pressure from others in the region.

General Morteza Qorbani told the news agency Mizan on Sunday: “America.. is sending two warships to the region. If they commit the slightest stupidity, we will send these ships to the bottom of the sea along with their crew and planes using two missiles or two new secret weapons.”

The general’s comment comes after the U.S. announced on Friday that 1500 troops will be deployed to the Middle East.
