Would you think 100's of millions of dollars would buy a little cooperation?

What would happen if the crew sank all 4 Iranian patrol boats, aside from oil prices I mean. Didn't something like this happen to the USS COLE?




October 12, 2000 On Thursday, October 12, 2000, while refueling at a port in Aden, Yemen, the U.S. Navy destroyer Cole was attacked by a two suicide bombers navigating a small motorboat full of explosives. The explosion occurred at 11:18 a.m. Bahrain time, killing 17 crew members and wounding 39 others.

Anyway, the band plays on, hope they can get along on the high seas. I truly hope no one gets hurt.


The guided-missile destroyer USS Nitze (DDG-94) was followed and harassed by four Iranian patrol boats on Tuesday in the Persian Gulf, defense officials confirmed to USNI News.

Iranian patrol boats have a range of how many nautical miles? Probably within sovereign waters, maybe just beyond?

I think this is part of the policy to escort merchant ships through the area. They have been reports of them being harrassed by Iranian patrol boats. Through in thr state dept warning about US citizens in the area and it makes sense. What eventually will happen is the paroles boats will push things to far and be sunk. The next step after warning flares and collision alarm is to remove the threat. Luckily they gave them every opertunity to stop other countries might not have been as nice. Try charging a Russian a Russian destroyer with patrol boats bet they would be sunk.

Is this being reported as an ongoing real timer or an
isolated incident?

What bothers me is the personnel on the Iranian boats are just pawns in this. Like you said they would be fish food if approaching Russian ships.

There capable of going anywhere in the Gulf frankly it just isn't that big. Large vessels are the ones restricted to deep water which is a very narrow passage.

Iran? Meh. Wake me up when North Korea gets even more upitty than this. This is more likely the start of WW3.

BBC News, Aug 24, 2016 - North Korea submarine fires ballistic missile.

Sorry do not mean to sound so harsh but NK is nuts! And they are really PO'd about the yearly joint exercise going on. The rhetoric keeps rising and nobody is paying attention. The good news is Japan, China, and South Korea are going to have a talking to them.

actual story is here.
sounds like they got a bit too close to iranian waters and got scared off.


Would you think 100's of millions of dollars would buy a little cooperation?

i highly doubt america would allow other nations warships enter american waters.


What would happen if the crew sank all 4 Iranian patrol boats, aside from oil prices I mean.

international condemnation would follow.
iran is still under embargo to america, who buys its oil from saudi arabia, so oil prices wouldnt be affected.


Didn't something like this happen to the USS COLE?

no, get educated.
al qaeda did it in yemen.

Ok....

You got me, there are no similarities between these two stories.

And, if boats were sunk, this would lead to a "feeling" of instability that could very well effect oil prices.

That would be unfortunate, a lot of innocent people live there, and I'm glad cooler heads have prevailed. So far.
