What would you advise our military do when an Iranian ship is barreling down on one of our destroyers, with their weapons manned?
The USS Mahan had to face this situation just recently, in the Persian Gulf. The American destroyer chose to simply terrify the Iranian ship by firing a simple warning flare!
I guess the Iranian military isn’t as brave as they want us to think they are! Back in January, the USS Mahan had to fire warning shots at Iranian vessels, in the same area.
In November, their aggression was even worse, when they targeted a machine gun at one of our Navy’s helicopters. They didn’t fire, but it’s clearly unacceptable behavior.
They’ve also threatened to bring down one of our Navy’s aircraft, arguing it was somehow in their airspace.
But now, simple flares scare them off? It’s clear what’s changed — President Donald Trump. Everyone in the international community knows our new president means business.
He won’t be scared into undue action by any amount of pressure from foreign leaders. Neither will he be intimidated, like Obama was, by Iran’s pathetic attempts to bully our warships.
That doesn’t mean danger has passed, unfortunately. An American official said of the Iranian ship’s behavior, “Coming inbound at a high rate of speed like that and manning weapons, despite clear warnings from the ship, is obvious provocative behavior.”
You have to be out of your mind to threaten a powerful U.S. navy warship like that. But, that’s exactly how I’d describe the government of Iran — completely out of its mind. The nation has to come to its senses when dealing with our new Commander-in-Chief. Our military knows President Trump has their back, and that new surge of confidence must be helping keep the aggressors in their place.
Iran got used to being Obama’s spoiled brat. But, no matter where they are on the globe right now, we can be sure Trump is keeping them in check.
