Reuters World News: “Four of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) vessels “harassed” a U.S. warship on Tuesday near the Strait of Hormuz, a U.S. defense official said, amid Washington’s concerns about Iran’s posture in the Gulf and in the Syrian civil war.
The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that two of the Iranian vessels came within 300 yards of the USS Nitze in an incident that was “unsafe and unprofessional.”
The vessels harassed the destroyer by “conducting a high speed intercept and closing within a short distance of Nitze, despite repeated warnings,” the official said.”
Opinion: The direct result of leading from behind. It began in Libya, 2011, during the downfall of Gadaffi as the rebels reached Tripoli. Obama choked and passed the baton to an international coalition.
It continued in Syria with the infamous red line and it continues today as Russian Planes buzz US war ships, Iran takes US Navy sailors prisoner on their knees at gun point, and now the same nation that was bestowed $150 billion in Obamacash and $400 million in ransom, is kicking sand in the face of the President of the United States.
It is embarrassing and it is on purpose.
From underfunding the military to firing over 100 generals to an incompetent and bloated Veterans Administration, this president is doing every thing he can to weaken and degrade the world’s lone global superpower and strongest military in the world.
The transfer of power and prestige to a global government is underway. All that is needed is 4 more years.
