Four Iranian fast attack craft sped towards the Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Nitze in the Strait of Hormuz on Tuesday.
In what appears to be a move to provoke US sailors into attacking them, or to observe their reactions, the four Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats sped towards the USS Nitze while ignoring attempts at communication.
According to the Washington Examiner, A Navy official said that the Iranian boats came within 300 yards of the Nitze.
CNN reported that the U.S. attempted to contact the Iranians 12 times, to no avail.
The USS Nitze fired flares, sounded its horn, and had to change course in order to keep a distance between itself and the Iranian craft.
Sailors on the Nitze captured the incident on video.
The provocation came on Obama’s first day back from an almost month-long golf vacation.
Obama approved a $400 million ransom for four American hostages held by Iran earlier this year.
The Iranian nuclear deal approved by the Obama administration saw the U.S. give the terrorist supporting Iranians $150 billion. Shortly after, Iran captured two US Navy boats, and detained 10 sailors.
Apparently the Iranians have figured out what a p*ssy Obama is and figure they can stage mock attacks on our military with no repercussions. Either that or Obama is working with Iran against us.
Tuesday’s incident with the USS Nitze was extremely unprofessional, and dangerous.
In 2012 the Telegraph UK reported that Iran has been perfecting the art of “swarm attacks” on U.S. Navy ships. Iran has been buying up U.S. and Italian speedboats for just such a strike.
The Telegraph noted that,
“Most of the speedboats in any swarm attack would be destroyed by US helicopter gunships, unmanned aerial vehicles and ship-mounted Phalanx close-in weapons systems (a radar-guided gattling gun that fires up to 4,500 rounds a minute), but it would only need one suicide boat to get through for such an attack to be successful. If the target were an aircraft carrier, the images of a stricken, $4.5 billion flagship would reverberate around the world like September 11.”
One Navy official said that the possibility of these kind of attacks are “the nightmare scenario. It’s the sort of thing that has captains in the Gulf breaking out in cold sweat in the middle of the night.”
Obama has left America weak, and a laughing stock to the world. Our enemies don’t respect us, and believe they can run roughshod over our military.
Only a president with b*lls will change this, and Hillary ain’t it.
Share if you want Trump to put the fear of God in the hearts of our enemies once again.
