4th Incident in the Last Week: Is the Iranian Navy Pushing for War with the USA?

On Wednesday for the second day in a row, and fourth time this week, there was an incident between the U.S. Navy and an Iranian Boat.  Wednesday’s incident seemed to be an increase in tensions between the hapless Obama administration and the terrorist Iranian regime our President has been making concessions to for the past four years. This time after an Iranian boat threatened a US Navy patrol craft, our naval heroes fired three warning shots. Any ramp up of aggression would include shooting at and sinking the Iranian boat.

The incident occurred at the northern end of the Persian Gulf when two American patrol crafts and a Kuwaiti Navy ship were also harassed by the Revolutionary Guard boat.

When the Iranian boat came within 200 yards of the USS Squall, the American craft fired flares and had a radio conversation with the Iranian Crew. Then following standard maritime procedures, the Navy fired the three shots into the water to ensure the Iranians understood they needed to leave the immediate area.

This is the fourth incident in the past week
