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.

“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.”
But Biden trusts them not to do so.
It seems an enterprising Captain will have to provoke the Iranians into shooting first.
They know that Biden is chicken and he tells the commanders not to hit those boats.
with inflation, the cash price must be at least $2 billion.
These are the times I wish we had all of that laser technology onboarded. Just incinerate one person on the boat. “Hey, what happened to Achmed? He was here a second ago.”
Did Obama , I mean Biden order them to surrender yet ?
How long before Iran takes hostages/prisoners and parades them on tv? Again?
A compound bow could get an arrow there in a few seconds.
Why us a Coast Guard cutter in that area? Have we run out of Navy vessels?
This administration will drag us into another war. Perhaps first another $100 billion round of appeasement funds, so the enemy can re-arm. Then the war.
Should have been warning shots straight into the bows.
Did Biden order our ships to surrender to the lifeboats yet?
(Finally, something that really IS “breaking”...)
The terrorists go after weakness. Biden/Harris/Hillary. The A-team.
Biden is the american dick-tater now. They are no longer afraid.
can you raise a rainbow flag?
Did they take the Americans hostage? Sheesh, another Carter.
Another USS Cole in the works.
One warning shot. Then ranging shots. Then fire for effect.
