    What is the point? What does the Iran navy think they will accomplish by charging a US navy ship? It's like a two year old punching Mike Tyson in the knee.

    i think in 12 days this crap won't be attempted. And I think in 13 days if it is there won't be as many warnings.

    I don't know. What did the Japanese hope to accomplish on December 7th, 1941.

    That was a bit different. The Japanese were critically low on fuels and was getting desperate to make sure the Pacific fleet couldn't enter the war at all. It was meant to totally obliterate the fleet in own massive surprise attack. Plus, the US Navy in 1941 wasn't nearly as large as it is now. I'd have to look it up but I don't even think the US navy in 1941 was the largest in the world.

    Sure
    But a surprise attack by Iran on US Ships might just be similar in thought.
    You can never take that chance.
    The Iranians will be clear on this very soon.

    Ok.

    Obama is a pussy when it comes to the military. if he can't send a drone, then he does nothing. Trump will do something, military or industry wise, that gets Iran to knock this shit off.

    The Iranians can't make an outright attack on the US. They will need one of their sponsored terrorist groups to do it.

    I agree. Trump is an irrational person who could lead us into unnecessary wars.

    You think we should engage in an act of war because some Iranian ships got within 1000 yards of our ships in International waters?

    What do you think Iran is doing by this stunt?

    It's a message saying that our pallet is empty.

    So you support more aggressive military involvement in the Middle East than the previous 8 years?

    I think they do this for domestic consumption and to show the Iranian people that they won't back down against the big bad Americans.

    If he sends an actual soldier, then everybody starts yelling ,"there are boots on the ground, there are boots on the ground, he said there'd be no boots on the ground".
