    There's a revealing inconsistency here. The fact that a US destroyer is capable of destroying almost anything that floats does not give it any privileges in international waters.

    MY has an authoritarian brain. This will not compute.

    I am reminded of a little joke we tell around here.

    "Alter your course, please. Over"

    "You alter course. Over"

    "You are on a collision heading. Alter course immediately. Over."

    "No. You are on the collision course. You alter your heading. Over."

    *Short pause. New voice* "This is the Captain of the USS Ronald Reagan. I am an aircraft carrier. Change course immediately!"

    "This is the keeper of Transport Canada's Mudge Island light.I advise you to alter your course very soon."

    Posted By: Andrew PalfreymanI wonder what part of "fuck off, you don't live here" they don't understand.
    The international waters, part, perhaps? Also maybe that those boats were pissants that could have been shredded in an instant at the whim of the destroyer's skipper? It would be smarter not to yell "fuck off" if you can't back it up and if the other party is within their right to be there.

    So what exactly stops Iran sailing their boats in international waters?

    Also, those 4 boats which can be armed with mortars, rockets, guided missiles and/or torpedoes, were within 300 yards which, had they been hostile that ship would have been in real danger. So your Gun-ho is a bit out of place. The threat was actually mutual.

    Interesting, isn't it, that it's foreign journalists who put this story together? Where is the spine in USA media?

    Or perhaps not, considering Captain "cuntface" Rogers was deliberately sailing in Iranian waters. Because the pathetic little worm was trying to start a war (for his personal aggrandisement, most likely).
