Iranian military gunboats with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, a designated terrorist organization, swarmed several U.S. warships on Monday that were escorting a U.S. submarine.
“Over a dozen Iranian gunboats harass formation of six U.S. warships including guided-missile submarine Georgia,” Fox News Pentagon correspondent Lucas Tomlinson said. “U.S. Coast Guard cutter fired warning shots in response in Strait of Hormuz.”
The 13 Iranian military vessels reportedly came within 150 yards of U.S. Forces, which fired 30 warning shots at the Iranian vessels. Pentagon press secretary John Kirby called the incident “significant” since previous incidents had involved fewer vessels.

all 12 boats ought to have been sunk
“all 12 boats ought to have been sunk”
They know that Americans will not have permission to engage. Back to the Obama days of having our noses rubbed in it.
Military failure thanks to Biden. Any one of those boats at that range could have shot missiles or munitions impossible to intercept at 150 yards.
Joe probably told the U S ships to raise their white flags (but maybe that would be racist?).
So they couldn’t accidently enter a firing solution to sink 1 of these Iranian boats? They still would have a had 12 boats left. Blame it on the fog of war.
Didn’t the Iranians get the Biden/Kerry memo, we are on the same team now?
How much CASH will Biden send them to stop?
Iran sending a message. Specifically “Come on Biden, what are you waiting for? We’ve been doing provocative stuff for a few months now. By now we should have had a peace deal with pallet loads of untraceable cash and a promise to take our word for it in matters of terrorism or developing nukes! What are you waiting for?!?”
Yep, we need to stop with the warning shots. They get one, then they get sunk. Make a big deal out of handing the wet crew members back to the Iranians on every TV network on Earth. Bet this nonsense stops real quick.
But of course, our military won’t be allowed to defend itself with Biden calling the shots.
The US ships flashed them their rainbow flag and broadcast their slogans to diversity, and the Iranian vessels immediately retreated.
They would have been last year - but there's a new sheriff in town.
150 yards is waaay too close - what's the closing speed of an exocet?
Having puppet man in the White House doesn’t give me a warm feeling. He will capitulate to the iranians faster than you can say “He betrays his country.”
Trump would have ordered them sunk.
Biden wants a war
When you get to 30, those should not longer have been warning shots.
When they woke up joe to ask him about this, he declared war on Lithuania.
“came within 150 yards of U.S. Forces, which fired 30 warning shots at the Iranian vessels.”
That’s a lot of shots across the bow. All you are doing is teaching them that you are afraid to shoot AT them.
