We’ve talked at length about the dangers coming from the nation of Iran. They have openly admitted to being enemies of the United States and Israel, known to fund and support terrorist activities.
They are clearly hostile to the U.S. and our allies and pose a continual threat to the entire Middle East. That’s why so many Americans were shocked to learn that our government has been sending this nation money–under the guise of fulfilling a decades-old agreement–while they continue to show us nothing but hostility, such as taking hostages.
Make no mistake, the Iranians intend to make a nuclear weapon. If they ever do, they’ll use it against us or our allies. There are no negotiations with a country as hostile and uncooperative as Iran.
Even recently they have acted aggressively towards our forces abroad.
A small Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard vessel pointed its weapon at a U.S. military helicopter in the Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, two U.S. defense officials told Reuters on Monday, an action they described as “unsafe and unprofessional.”…
The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the incident took place when a Navy MH-60 helicopter flew within half a mile (0.8 km) of two Iranian vessels in international waters. One of the vessels pointed a weapon at the helicopter, the U.S. officials said.
“The behavior by our standards is provocative and could be seen as an escalation,” the officials said. At no point did the crew of the helicopter feel threatened, they added.
When it comes to military protocol, this act is unacceptable. Why aim your weapons at a vessel unless you intend to fire?
Ships and other payload carrying vehicles have a variety of safety measures and practices to prevent the accidental firing or operation of their weapons. This is especially true to prevent friendly-fire, or the act of firing on an ally.
But Iran doesn’t see America as an ally. They consider us a threat to their oppressive regime. This act of pointing their weapons at U.S. vehicles is a clear sign that they do not want American forces near them.
The next step would be to open fire.
The incident is the latest in a series of similar actions by Iranian vessels this year, but the first reported since Republican Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 8.
During his campaign, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessel that harassed the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be “shot out of the water,” if he was elected. Trump is due to take office on Jan. 20.
The liberal media want to twist this narrative to make it sound like Trump’s fault, despite the fact that he hasn’t even taken office yet. The truth is Iran has been hostile to America for a very long time. They are bidding their time before they can take aggressive action.
Let’s hope President Trump will put an end to this sort of behavior once and for all.
