U.S. Navy Destroyer Fires Warning Shots at Iranian Vessels

Picture from Breitbart

The Iranian Navy continues to harass the US Navy in Strait of Hormuz by using small swift boat like vessels to penetrate US naval vessels space according to an article in Breitbart News.  The Navy has mostly been tolerate this for the last few years, but on this occasion they fired warning shots after signalling them with flares.  The Iranians are trying to lay claim international waters with these stunts that are unprecedented.  If we tolerate it, they will continue to engage in this campaign of intimidation.  I believe that their end goal is to trigger an actual sinking of one of their Iranian ships. The Iranians would like to be seen as the victim in this game of cat and dog.
