I really do not like how U.s demonizes the iran, in the media and through their goverment, and then goes and pulls a move like this in the international political playing field. It's just immature and not right.

Well if you don't mind Iran etc hanging around your waters, then I guess its OK!!

so if the USN had open fired then its a breach of international law and would have given Iran `just cause` to retiliate.

Hey, Cool Hand. Do you really believe this particular incident is a routine as you have suggested? I mean, that is quite the threat (if, indeed, the report and attributable quotes are accurate).

this is just plainly stupid. not all people of iran are what you call 'extremists'. (actually very few of them are) this really is pathetic way of thinking. seriously grow up.
the US government are probably the worst 'extremists' on this earth, if you know anything about US foreign policy. they consistently force their way on others and conduct the worst acts of terrorism by far.
start reading books, stop watching tv.
