    That's because in the very real world, killing the sailors on those ships as you suggested is murder. And I know damn well you wouldn't find Iran justifiable sinking US ships just for being in the straight of Hormuz.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    I am. I really do think we should get in on the fatwa business, though. Why do Iran and Saudi Arabia get a monopoly?

    If the ships had nukes, I would not be cool with that. However, I don't think Iran has the bomb yet - although they certainly seem to be trying to make one.

    That's what it is when you sink ships and kill sailors who are within the law and no threat to the United States -- cold-blooded murder.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I don't think the Iranian government will risk it, though. They might lose half their crew.
    Or they might use it as an opportunity to attack the US. Still, we could have the navy screen the vessel while out at sea, and then have Iranian-Americans meet and greet them at the port.

    Yup, the world reads Obama like an open book.

    These dumb idiots must think that if is only fair to do something as meaningless as this. If the US can hold navy maneuvers in the Persian Gulf the Iranians must feel it is fair to sail close to US waters as a "retaliation". Silly and pathetic but then again, we are talking about the Iranian government.

    apdst, maybe you are just terrified of an Iranian destroyer, but they could sail down the Mississippi River and around to my front yard and I really wouldn't be concerned. If they want to mess with me, they'll have to deal with our guys. The best freaking killing machines on the face of this earth have my back. I think they can handle some middle-eastern dictator's puny destroy and a logistics boat.

    Feel free to continue freaking out, though. That is your choice.

    This is what weak leadership gets you-emboldened bad guys.
    No, weak leadership would be lashing out at every little bit of bull**** like this puny Iranian boat. You would have us acting like that asshole in the bar who is so insecure that he absolutely must make sure everyone in the building knows hes tough, damnit!

    You people would have our country acting like pathetic children. MOM! Jimmy is on MY side of the car! WAAAAAAHH!

    Seriously, why do you give a **** about this boat? Are you scared? Because I'm not. Why should our country have any reaction to something so trivial? We have better things to do. Let pissants respond to pissants. We're America. We can squish them like insects if we want to. We know it, they know it. But we don't squish them, because it's not worth the effort to do so.

    Worrying about perceived slights is what losers do.
