Iranian Warships Have Entered the Atlantic Ocean


Politico: U.S. warns Venezuela, Cuba to turn away Iranian ships believed to be carrying arms 

Caracas is trying to leverage the situation to gain relief from U.S. sanctions, officials said. 

The Biden administration is urging Venezuela and Cuba to turn away two Iranian warships believed to be carrying arms intended for transfer to Caracas, while vowing that the U.S. will take “appropriate measures” to deter what it sees as a “threat” to America’s partners in the Western Hemisphere. 

The warnings — some public and some private, according to three people briefed on the situation — come as the vessels have traveled a significant distance across the Atlantic Ocean. A senior Biden administration official said the ships are thought to be carrying weapons to fulfill a deal that Iran and Venezuela made a year ago, noting that it was during the administration of former President Donald Trump.

This situation appears to be a test of how far the various players involved will go. In addition I'm certain this has been discussed with a number of shadow players, namely china, and I'd think Russia. At present I'd say the pressure is on biden.
It seems right out of a chinese influenced playbook.
