Posted on 05/10/2021 12:42:22 PM PDT by lowbridge
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.

Exactly. That's not how a warning shot works. This was a warning shot and 29 misses.
But under the current clown show, we have a drooling demented fool at the helm, ably assisted in stupidity by a cast of far left lunatics who wouldn't know a ship from a Schiff. The decks of our ships are soiled by trannies looking for their next hormone shot, effeminate gays, lesbians who shoot each other instead of the enemy, and general-purpose doofuses. This incident is disgusting and I fear the next one (oh, there WILL be a next one, and soon) will result in the loss of American lives.
They might just. Jimmy Carter put them in power and they screwed him by taking hostages.
The Goalkeeper is a hell of a machine.
Several U.S. warships that were escorting a U.S. submarine? I would think it would be the other way around.
*** Biden wants a war ***
I think Israel wants us to have a war.
150 yds is nothing for a sniper.
When you get to 30, those should not longer have been warning shots.
= = =
The ‘warning shot magazine’ probably has only 30.
The ‘real shot magazine’ is probably empty, repurposed for diversity events.
Biden wishes to surrender to the Mullahs via treaty, or executive action, and not militarily. That would be embarrassing, even to a man with no self awareness or shame, like him.
Events may supersede his desires, as the Iranians seem to be on hair trigger, and if they themselves initiate a naval battle, they would normally have numerous new martyrs to celebrate during their domestic staged pro government demonstrations. “Death to America” they scream.
“Don’t rush me” says Joe Biden, “I thought we had an understanding?”, as he orders the Navy to stand down. Will Biden withdraw the fleet from the Persian Gulf? That is one of the main Iranian demands, isn’t it?
What a disgrace this Nation has become...
A military now structured on perversion that understands only surrender...
The US Navy has attained the military competence of the WWII French and Italian navies...
I suspect during DJT’s tenure as POTUS, the senior officer present could have made that call, “weapons free”, no call for permission to defend needed, and received full backing of the White House...
But of course DJT is not senile, a sellout or a pussilanimous pissant...
.........Biden and our feminized command staff are going to get some of our kids killed sure as hell!
I know.. It is just easier sometimes to refer to Biden as a collective sock puppet
yes, and then poll the crew to see how many need a safe space before actual interaction with the peaceful Iranian protestors could take place.
Like loving to spend other people's money, they love spending other people's sons & daughters on money-making (for them) wars.
The muzzie scum boats fired on our ships?
My only response is “STOP WARNING, START KILLING”!
Must be the international respect I’ve been hearing so much about.
US Navy’s a joke. But, didn’t we just celebrate the first all faggot helicopter crew? There’s always that. USN. Cutting edge for diversity.
Some of them should have been blown to smithereens. Thirty warning shots is ridiculous.
