In the past week”
China dissed Obama.
Philippines dissed Obama.
Korea dissed the US.
Now Iran does it again.
This was more than just harassment. It was intended to show that the US has no balls. The USS Firebold is a well armed vessel with enough firepower to blow those Iranian boats out of the water.

Three of the FIACs maneuvered close to Firebolt, mirroring the ship’s course and speed at a distance of about 500 yards for about eight minutes before leaving. Another FIAC then sped towards Firebolt and stopped directly in front of the ship, causing the Firebolt crew to maneuver to avoid a collision. The U.S. ship and Iranian FIAC came within 100 yards of one another, the defense official said.
During the incident, the Firebolt crew attempted radio communication three times to understand the Iranians’ intentions, but the FIAC crews never res
