No one fears or respects the US any longer! Blow these SOB'S out of the water! Gawd, we need Reagan!
A U.S. navy patrol boat was approached and harassed by seven Iranian warships in the Persian Gulf, narrowly avoiding a collision with one of them.
It’s the latest in a string of incidents with the Islamic Republic of Iran in those waters.
The U.S. Naval Institute is reporting that seven Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy “fast in-shore attack craft” approached the USS Firebolt while it was operating in international waters in the central part of the gulf on Sunday.
Three of the Iranian ships maneuvered close to the Firebolt, mirroring the ship’s course and speed 500 yards away for eight minutes before leaving. Another Iranian attack ship then sped toward the Firebolt, and stopped directly in front of the ship, causing it to maneuver to avoid a collision. The two ships came within 100 yards of each other.
During the incident, the Firebolt crew attempted radio communication three times to understand the Iranians’ intentions, but the FIAC crews never responded. The FIACs’ crew-served weapons were uncovered and manned but untrained during the encounter, the official said.
The Navy Central Command called the incident “unsafe” and “unprofessional” due to a lack of communication and harassment at close range.
“The Iranian’s unsafe maneuvers near a United States ship operating in accordance with international law while transiting in international waters created a dangerous, harassing situation that could have led to further escalation including additional defensive measures by Firebolt,” the official told USNI News.
“This type of incident would have led NAVCENT to recommend that the State Department deliver a diplomatic message of protest if this interaction had been with a country with which the United States had an official diplomatic relationship.”
Within the last two weeks, the USS Nitze, a guided-missile destroyer was harassed by Iranian vessels, as well as the patrol coastal ships USS Tempest, USS Squall and destroyer USS Stout.
They’re playing us for fools and Obama’s letting them. It’s disgraceful.
Unsafe my rear end....sink the SOB's, wait...Barky boy doesn't want us to harm his pals. Can't wait for that useless piece of amphibian crap to go!! Back in my day we killed our enemies. Duke
It is absolutely a disgrace what this man has done to this country. He is so vile and a total traitor to the nation. How far we have fallen under him. I won't even say what I wish upon him.
Iran is emboldened by Obama's kiss to their fanny! The Iranians will become more aggressive and no doubt will attack. We can hope that when that happens, we don't tuck tail & run but engage & destroy!
Obama is evil as well as treasonous!
They know Obama isn't going to do anything to jeopardize his "legacy".
Yeah. He wants his legacy to be the right hand of Muhammad.
Indeed! The whole world knows Obama will do nothing.
