Navy-Contracted Vessel Fires Warning Shots on Iranian Boats


www.foxnews.com

A vessel contracted by the Navy in the Persian Gulf fired warning shots Thursday on two Iranian fast boats, FOX News has learned.

The Westward Venture, a ship contracted by the U.S. Military Sealift Command to carry military cargo to Kuwait, fired upon the boats Thursday after attempts to get Iranian boats' attention failed.

A Navy security team, armed with M16 rifles and .50-caliber machine guns, was onboard at the time the warning shots were fired.

One more thing in a growing list of events that have happened in a very short amount of time.

This is interesting - but it may be one of those "much ado about nothing" kind of things. If an Iranian was killed, then it is a very different story, but warning shots seem a bit harmless.

Now, on the other hand, if this is some sort of tie in with the Syria nuclear reactor thing, it is a whole other bag.
