Well here we go again, hows this for a show of International Relations
The third time this month. When they have an Earthquake, The U.S. will be one of the
first to offer aid if the Iranians will accept it. Beautiful.
Go Navy!
I'm starting to think that the Iranian Fisherman really like our MRE's.

I have to call BS.

This is getting absolutely ridiculous. The US rescuing the Iranians 3 times in as many weeks? C'mon! What is the end game here?

It's almost like the "Poor Iranians" are so inept that the US must step in to save them from themselves. This is almost comical. In fact it actually is.

I do not believe a word of it. One instance? Ok. Two..Coincidence. Three? BS.

I smell something brewing but can't lay my finger on it as of yet.

USA to the World: "I guess it's a good thing we were so close to Iran so as to save these poor souls. Maybe we should stay a little longer....just in case."

How is it that so many Iranians vessels are close enough to American War Ships to be rescued? American ships are in every water of the World and you just know that they would trumpet saving helpless sailors on the open waters to bolster their image whenever possible and the MSM would be all over it. "America Saves The Day!"

Sure it happens and we occasionally hear of it but 3 times in 3 weeks in the same little piece of water? And just as a coincidence, it's in the exact waters that America is getting ready to launch yet another war from?

Nope.

Peace

Fair Enough. But it reminds me of this:

www.youtube.com...

Also the great diplomatic discussion at the end of the movie
Where the U.S. representative asks his Soviet counterpart,
"Don't tell me , you've lost another Submarine!"

So consider it Divine Intervention.

What makes you think the rescue order came down from the other side of the world from top pentagon brass?

yeah there's navy ships out there, but why does even a little decent act by the military have to have some malevolent ulterior motive to it?

First they thank em........

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday welcomed the U.S. Navy’s rescue of 13 Iranian fishermen held hostage by Somali pirates in the Arabian Sea, calling it a humanitarian act.


Then they call it propaganda.........




But the hard-line Fars News Agency, which is close to Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, dismissed the rescue as a Hollywood-style propaganda stunt intended to justify the U.S. Navy’s presence in the nearby Persian Gulf.


Iran thanks U.S. – then rips rescue

Tom Cruise is impressed !

Lets see what they have to say about this one.............


Regardless,its good to see,in a world of hate in that region.

If there is a massive military vessel menacing your water ways they are bound to come across boats and people in trouble. If the U.S. wasn't there someone else would have helped them..

If Iran had navy vessels in the Atlantic Ocean near the U.S. they'd come across plenty of opportunities to help U.S. boats.

Thats like "If a tree fell in the woods but there was no one there to hear it,
did it make a sound?"

You reply assures me that "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished."

In your mind anyway.

Didn't say it came from the brass.

I'm saying that it's highly suspicious that with the tensions so high in the area, how is it that non-military Iranian vessels are so close to American ships?

Are these really Iranian vessels? Or do these vessels even exist?

Something is not right.

Cheers Sonnny1,
These days, even when you try to do right, there are those who claim
you have an ulterior motive to do wrong. Even "The Good Samaritan" is suspect.
If they keep pushing the negative charge, you know a positive charge is going to strike.
Fast as lightning.

I would rather like US stop assassination of Iranian scientists.

Those news about fish boats are just piece of puzzles of psycho-war against Iranian people.

Hey look , America is friendly , let's let them invade here

Documents , Who killed Iranian scientist ?

Haven't you heard? The word is out amongst the Iranian Fisherman that the American Food,
Medical Treatment, and A-1 Hospitality is out of this world.
They Love U.S.

Well isn't this just odd... I posted immediately after the second one that I'd be mighty suspicious about a third in a short period of time and what do ya know... Here we are with a third! This would be an interesting way to get final intelligence data or confirmations with close up observation of American warships, response procedures and any number of other things, as I think about it.

I hope the FOURTH call has some serious air cover and backup a radio call away. I have a feeling one of these will be a trap to test a little more directly.

I'm thrilled that the U.S. is helping these Iranian ships.. but honestly it's to be expected. International maritime laws mandate assistance of boats in trouble.. it's also the right thing to do, and any sailor is more than happy to help another.

But to use these rescues as a way to justify the U.S. intimidating Iran (which there is no doubt that's why the ship is there) is just wrong. Our navy has no business harassing Iran.

Since this news kind of goes worldwide I'm 100% sure Iran would let us all know if it were BS.

It is standard procedure to help a ship in distress by whatever reason...does anyone here even have a clue of the power and capability of the the U.S. Fifth Fleet...just a single carrier group amoung many? This single carrier group is more capable and more powerful than the entire combined forces or Iran.

Rescuing a few guys at sea is no big deal. Split Infinity

Thanks for your reply. I starred you a momento for that.

My topic however is not about Iranian Scientists who decided to oppose their own Regime.

I can drift with the tide though.

Remember this is the Third Act of Good Faith.

This is an act of respect by the U.S. Navy to The Iranian People.

Best Regards
