What did we get for giving the Iranians over a BILLION dollars in cash?
Apparently that money bought us our hostages and nothing more. It definitely didn’t buy America any RESPECT!
Iran is laughing at us. Laughing at the US! Mostly laughing at President Obama.
Our military is like a dog on a chain. If it was ever unleashed, the mocking would stop. Instantly.
Today Fox News is reporting:
Four ships belonging to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) “harassed” an American destroyer in the Strait of Hormuz Tuesday, a U.S. Navy official confirmed to Fox News.
The official said the Iranian ships carried out a “high-speed intercept,” with two of the vessels coming within 300 yards of the USS Nitze.
The Navy official described the incident as “unsafe and unprofessional,” adding that the Iranian ships “created a dangerous, harassing situation that could have led to further escalation.”
The USS Nitze was accompanied by the guided missile destroyer USS Mason on what the official described as a “routine transit” in international waters at the time of the incident.
As the Iranian ships closed in, the official said the Nitze attempted to make radio contact 12 times with no response. As the Iranian ships continued their approach, the destroyer sounded five short blasts on its whistle, an international danger signal.
The official said the Nitze was ultimately forced to change its course to avoid the Iranian ships, despite coming close to offshore oil rigs.
We changed course. That says it all.
If we don’t stand tall soon we will need to lay the smack down internationally. President Obama has seriously weakened us to the point of Jimmy Carter.
We are a laughing stock if a country like Iran does this.
What will a serious country do? Russia? China?
We better grow a backbone and soon or this is going to get ugly.
Are the Fox hosts right in the video? Do we need to take a “More Muscular” approach?
Do we need to sink a ship every once in awhile to show who is boss?
