Why did we let Iranian intimidates our ships ? We don't have the gut to respond to their aggressive ? Why didn't we sink some Iranian boats approached our ships within 1,000 yards with provoke intend ? If we did they will never come within 5 miles.

Iranian fast boats have once again harassed an American ship in the Persian Gulf, forcing a U.S. Navy patrol boat to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision with one of the Iranian boats. American officials have labeled the Iranian actions in Sunday's encounter involving the USS Firebolt as "unsafe and unprofessional." It is the latest in a string of such incidents over the past two weeks in which small craft from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) have harassed U.S. Navy ships in the Gulf. "The USS Firebolt, a patrol craft, was operating in international waters in the central Arabian Gulf, was approached by seven fast-attack craft from Iran," Capt. Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters today.

Obama may have issued orders to be nice to them. Obama his no real concept of what the military does and certainly no idea of respect and honor among members of an organization. Actually it's more important to Obama that the military establish nontraditional gender identity among non heterosexual members.

Sinking a sovereign nation's ship or boat is an act of war. 'nuff said. In before the lock.

thumbsup For sure. Like turtle said, light 'em up and see if they attempt any more harassing manuevers.

This will go on as long as we have a weak administration (i.e. president). Shoot one of them out of the water....and then add additional sanctions. IMO, this treaty was just a worthless piece of paper, and needs to be revoked.

Can't tell if some are idiots or trolling. We don't need another war. War is an extension of policy and not an extension of one's peen. The comments here are indicative of a lack of a strategic comprehension.

I guess you can't buy your friends no matter how much cash you give them... This bozo would do nothing if they killed American sailors.... just an 'unfortunate incident' reported by news stations.
