U.S. Navy Fires At Iranian Boat In Persian Gulf

Always nice to hear from our partners in peace.

Barbara Starr and Zachary Cohen, CNN:

A US Navy ship fired warning shots at an armed Iranian patrol boat Tuesday in the northern end of the Persian Gulf, according to two US defense officials.

The Iranian boat is believed to have been operated by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps…

The Iranians did not respond to any warnings from the US ship, including radio calls, firing of flares and five short blasts from the US Navy ship’s whistle…

The Navy ship then fired warning shots into the water over concerns about the possibility of a collision…

I don’t know why the Iranians keep provoking us. Couldn’t they just say thank you for all those billions in cash that Obama gave them? Some gratitude, huh?

Back in the old days, nobody had to pretend Iran was our friend. Songs like this weren’t considered racist:

Those were the days.

Well, carry on, Iran. Death to America™ and all that. Keep pushing it.
