Wagging the Eagle.

In a clear cut case of a couple school yard bullies threatening to attack the army base down the block, Iran is busy making a nuisance of itself, again. Not content with the past several years of nuclear grand standing, or even their presidents recent trip to America and his hilarious interview on national television they've decided to harass American war ships in the Persian Gulf. If they were doing so in the same way China did a few weeks ago it would be admirable, if irritating. Because the Iranians don't comparatively have anything north of a pop-gun to threaten the US with, they chose to circle around USN ships and offer of crude threats.

When will we have a government actually does something intelligent about things like this? Honestly, don't know where the useful men and women in Washington have been the last forty or fifty years, but this is pathetic. The goobermint should either not acknowledge stuff like this publicly which just validates the gits or should drop the hammer on them. The Iranians threatened to blow up the US ships. The US has had ships, the Cole for instance attacked in that area. The navy should have sunk the damn speed boats and offered sincere apologies to the Iranians, and expressed a firm belief that the decedents were surely renegades and their actions were not of course sanctioned by the Iranian government or naval command structure.

Self defense is a must, you can only have so many mad men threaten you with dire fates before one of them tries, there is no need to let someone who states they are going to kill you stick around long enough to try.
