The Iranians were so terrified of President Elect Ronald Reagan that after holding Americans hostage for over a year while Jimmy Carter was in the White House, they freed them all right in the middle of Reagan’s inaugural address.
Those were the good old days. Today, Iran walks all over America, and Obama lets them. His recent “deal” with them not only let them keep their nuclear program mostly intact, but paid a massive ransom to get U.S. citizens out of captivity.
So today’s news comes as no surprise:
In an open act of harassment, a fast attack craft, belonging to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps approached a U.S. Navy coastal patrol ship in the central Gulf Sunday, coming within 100 yards of the vessel.
A statement from U.S. Defense Department officials called the encounter between the Iranian ship and the USS Firebolt, “unsafe and unprofessional due to lack of communications and the close-range harassing maneuvering.”
According to one official, Iranian ships have been responsible for 31 such incidents of harassment this year alone.
No U.S. servic emembers were injured or killed during this close call, but that isn’t the point. There is no way the Iranians or any other nation would be so bold unless the president had spent the last eight years appeasing the nation’s enemies while disrespecting its allies.
