Iranian warships will sail to U.S. maritime borders for first time

A destroyer and helicopter supply ship seems almost laughable but would previous Iranian administrations have felt emboldened enough to try such a move?  The message being sent to the White House is not just that Iran has had enough but that they are not afraid.  And this is what is most dangerous, the years of back and forth between Tehran and Washington have numbed the Iranians to any serious retaliation by the United States.  It is also a sign that the Obama Administration is not having much progress in keeping Iran from pursuing nuclear weapons.  It may also mean that an announcement by Hilary Clinton to run for President will further escalate tensions.
