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.

<< Trump would have ordered them sunk. >>
Yup, but they never would’ve pulled this stunt with Trump as CIC.
The Hunter For Red October.
Not to mention a military "manned" by trannies, homosexuals, and pregnant fighter pilots, whose mission is "inclusiveness and diversity" (not national defence)?
Biden wants *to lose* a war
If it does go hot, expect all the “woke” enlistees to be assigned cushy rear echelon jobs.
Even the puke iranians dont respect the Resident and what he’s turned the once mighty US military into!
If one of them happened to be a suicide boat, and turns toward the ship, you have 6 or 7 seconds to stop it. A good guy manning a .50 cal could get him IF he is switched on, ready, and KNOWS that his Captain will back him up solid.
Any hesitation or several boats turn at once, they are gonna sink something.
[[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.]]
Make them kneel and confess first- like the iranians did to our soldiers-
Yes. Stretched way too thin.
No longer have Frigates for lighter duty - the CG Cutters have to fill the gap. Sad.
Well, the captain of each ship had to first consult with the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer to determine if it would be patriarchal, homophobic, misogynistic, racist, imperialist, capitalist, transphobic or an excessive display of toxic masculinity, white privilege or Judeo-Christian terrorist fundamentalism.
Then, they would conference in the gay CIA librarian to see what games they could play to simulate the situation in real time and the Cis-gendered intersectional, PSTD triggered woman who doesn’t want to feel like she doesn’t belong to add the perspective of the “other”.
Then, they have to wake Biden up from his nap, explain to him who he is, tell him his rice pudding will have to wait, etc.
Boy are we screwed.
Biden is a pussy as are the democrats
Fire for effect! Due to an ammo shortage, warning shots will no longer be fired.
JoeJoe is making Carter look good.
The one saving grade is the Mullahs might push too far. Biden is more than willing to pay them off and sell out civilized society, but if they actually start firing on our ships will that be too much for him or will he surrender?
This is Biden’s weak leadership’s America.
Will we make it 4 years?
Too bad we can’t trade desk Admirals for ships.
No wonder he visited Carter, this is a Carter Redux.
The NeoCon NeverTrumpers voted for Biden for that very reason.
