US Navy Says It Fired “Warning Shots” at Four Iranian Vessels Yesterday, Media Hypes Us for War Under Trump

As the West continues to beat its war drums against Russia, Syria, and Iran, the U.S. Navy announced that it fired “warning shots” at four Iranian “fast-attack vessels” near the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday.

Apparently the Iranian ships came within 900 yards of the USS Mahan which was escorting two other US military ships through the area (they just like to hang out in), so a US Navy helicopter dropped a smoke float and the Navy destroyed fired warning flares.

Check out how the mainstream media is hyping everyone for war with the timing of this as Reuters was quick to point out:

The incident, which occurred Sunday and was first reported by Reuters, comes as U.S. President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office on Jan. 20. In September, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessels that harass the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be “shot out of the water.”

To add to my point, Reuters goes on to say that Trump’s transition team was not immediately available for comment on how Trump has threatened to shoot Iranian ships out of the water.

The lunatics running the asylum want another war.

You can see how blatantly this is building up before Trump even gets into office. The way things feel right now is very much a flashback to when George W. Bush first got elected. At the beginning it was all fun and games and “look at the doofy guy who says stupid stuff every time he goes in front of a camera” but once Dubya dragged us all into war in Iraq (which he said was the hardest part of his job, connecting Iraq to the war on terror) and the US started torturing people, it wasn’t so funny anymore.

If the Powers That Shouldn’t Be want another war, they’re going to make sure they get us into another war.

    Why does the US Navy keep getting lost and ending up Iranian waters?

    • TrevorD

      Indeed. Imagine the uproar of a fleet of Iranian ships passing by New York Harbour.

      The Straits of Hormuz is considered an international shipping lane, despite the claims of “territorial waters” made my Iran or any other country in the immediate area. This is only made an issue (by Iran) when US warships transit the Straits but the fact is that hundreds of ships, both commercial and military, from many nations transit the Straits when entering or leaving the Persian Gulf on an annual basis. For the average Joe, this practice is akin to having a public right-of-way across your property and then trying to hijack people when they “trespass” on your property – even though they are legally allowed to use the right-of-way.

        I would say as the water laps on the shores of Iran, and NOWHERE NEAR the home of the disillusioned , and the land of GMO fed sheep, that Iran could pretty much have it their way. Because if the USA Navy ever steams through there firing at Iran, there will be a whole new fleet of artificial fish reefs in the Straits of Hormuz.
