Barack Obama would like nothing more than to see himself in office for another term so that he could continue his destruction and the transformation of America into a Muslim country with Sharia Law. What better way to do that than to create conflict between Iran and the US and send our countries into war. Obama would love for that to happen and then pretend he had “nothing” to do with it or he “learned about it in the news”.
It’s not the first threat from Iran and it won’t be the last. As long as Obama’s in office, Iran will continue to “toy” with the US Navy or for that matter, any of our military because they know they can get away with it. Let’s face it we have a Clown-in-Chief not a Commander-in-Chief.
H/T Navy Times:
A U.S. coastal patrol ship faced seven Iranian Republican Guard Corps Navy fast in-shore attack craft before swerving to avoid crashing into one on Sunday, according to a 5th Fleet spokesman.
The incident is the latest in a series of interactions the Navy has called “dangerous and unprofessional” in a year that has seen more run-ins between U.S. and Iranian ships than in recent memory. Iranian vessels harassed destroyers and PCs in four incidents in late August, resulting in warning shots in one case.
“The Iranians’ 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 IRGCN vessels, a type of large speed boat armed with rockets or other unguided weapons, approached Firebolt in the middle of the Persian Gulf on Sunday. Three peeled off and shadowed the PC from about 500 yards away for about eight minutes before turning and leaving the area, Cmdr. Bill Urban told Navy Times on Tuesday.
One of the remaining four FIACs in the area then turned and stopped directly in Firebolt’s path.
“This situation presented a drastically increased risk of collision, and Firebolt then maneuvered to narrowly avoid the FIAC at a range of 100 yards before departing the area.”
Firebolt tried to get the boats on the radio three times but there was no response. The crew-served weapons on deck were uncovered and manned but untrained according to accounts, he added.
Though the situation did not escalate, it’s the kind that the Navy would have reported to the State Department with a request for a message of protest, if the U.S. and Iran had an official diplomatic relationship.
And the incident came just 11 days after the Navy’s last unsafe run-in with the Iranians, when the coastal patrol ship Squall fired three warning shots at another small craft. Back in June, Iran also captured 11 US sailors in the same region.
These threats will continue. Iran knows they can play with our Navy or for that matter any of our military. Iran also knows they can collect ransom for US prisoners and get it.
If Donald Trump is elected as the next president, he will rebuild our military, secure our borders, defeat radical Islamic terrorism, restore clear rules of engagement for our troops, put an end to our weak foreign policies, restore law and order, and take care of our veterans. That’s more than Crooked Hillary would ever do. Afterall, she couldn’t even take a phone call at 3AM when our men needed her most.
