Iran Continues to Push Buttons With MASSIVE War Game Planned

While Donald Trump may at times appear a bit brutish, particularly when addressing the mainstream media, there are undoubtedly those out there who would test his mettle, given the chance.

For a while, we believed that Kim Jong Un of North Korea would be the first to feel the full wrath of what Donald Trump yields, given that Bashar al-Assad of Syria was lucky to get out with 59 Tomahawk Cruise missiles at an airfield that pretty much saw it coming.

Cooler heads prevailed, however, with a number of massive sanctions and threats doing their diplomatic duty in keeping the dainty DPRK dictator in check.

Now, form the Middle East, a new challenger has emerged, hoping to draw The Donald into a duel of sorts, and they are wasting no time in pushing the limits of his patience.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard is expected to put 100 gun boats in the Persian Gulf sometime in the next 48 hours to practice “swarm” tactics simulating actions which could potentially shut down the Strait of Hormuz, where roughly 10 percent of the world’s oil passes through each year, two U.S. officials said Wednesday.

Iran normally conducts its annual “swarm” exercise in the fall, but officials said the event has been moved up likely due to recent threats made between President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in recent days.

In a statement about the exercise, Navy Capt. Bill Urban, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, said: “We are aware of the increase in Iranian naval operations within the Arabian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz and Gulf of Oman. We are monitoring it closely, and will continue to work with our partners to ensure freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce in international waterways.” The Arabian Gulf is also known as the Persian Gulf.

And if that doesn’t get the Iranian regime back in step, I’m not sure if anything will.
