As President Obama winds down his stay in office (thankfully), we’re reminded of the deal he did with a nation that calls the United States “The Great Satan.”
Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about Iran. Iran is a backwards and crackpot nation who’s ideologies date back to the single digit year count. Ideologies that don’t really comply with modern society. Yet this is a country which Obama dealt with and loosened the sanctions on them, giving them a clear path to nuclear arms. Not a great start here on this one, not that Barack cares.
But Iran is continually up our collective a**es for no apparent reason. Here’s the latest chapter in the saga. According to reports, Iranian patrol boats harassed an American militay ship called the USS Nitze. But with Iran, surely they were provoked, right? This was some retaliation for something we did, right? Haha, that’s rich.
Four ships belonging to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) “harassed” an American destroyer in the Strait of Hormuz Tuesday, a U.S. Navy official confirmed to Fox News.
The official said the Iranian ships carried out a “high-speed intercept,” with two of the vessels coming within 300 yards of the USS Nitze.
The Navy official described the incident as “unsafe and unprofessional,” adding that the Iranian ships “created a dangerous, harassing situation that could have led to further escalation.”
Unsafe and unprofessional? YOU DON’T SAY. Iran is a country ruled by Islam. It’s a country where women are beaten, raped, and the men responsible for the crimes suffer no consequences for it. It’s a country where people cannot speak freely and where the thought of the US sickens them. Iran is quite literally the definition of dangerous.
The USS Nitze was accompanied by the guided missile destroyer USS Mason on what the official described as a “routine transit” in international waters at the time of the incident.
As the Iranian ships closed in, the official said the Nitze attempted to make radio contact 12 times with no response. As the Iranian ships continued their approach, the destroyer sounded five short blasts on its whistle, an international danger signal.
The official said the Nitze was ultimately forced to change its course to avoid the Iranian ships, despite coming close to offshore oil rigs.
Here’s the original video:
I’m not sure about you, but in international waters and forcing warships to change course when unprovoked essentially means an act of war. And where’s Obama’s response? Nowhere to be found. I’m sure his best buddies in Iran will be happy to know he’s not saying a word. After all, he did just give them $400 million.
