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.

For what, exactly? Defending their sovereignty? Hardly a valid justification for war.

Obama is unfit to be President.???? Is this off topic? What does the president have to do with a bunch of rag heads scooting around in the gulf? ...and how does a 24 ft out board bully a 100 ton, 600 hundred foot navy ship bulging with guns and guys trained to us gun?

Funny thing is China basically annexed thousands of miles of the South China Sea and we have done nothing. So what!, many will say, but do you realize over 5 Trillion of goods are shipped through the SCS?
But considering China saved our ass we should just let them do whatever though right?

Isn't IRAN the country that seized our U.S. Navy patrol boat last year, and did something to the sailors that brought some of them to tears?
