    And then bomb the camels, we take our vengeance pretty seriously around here..............and we're good at it.

    Well, that would indicate that we consider their presence worthy of response. I think an unexplained sinking the moment they cross thee line says it a whole lot better.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    Meh, either works for me. Personally, I don't care what they think as long as any bad actors see that we take our borders seriously. Whether the ships "happen to sink"(hey, **** happens) or they get lit up by a few superior units then either way the world would see that the U.S. water line means "do not cross".

    I'm glad this thread has segued into something important, like vinegar vs tomato pulled pork BBQ, rather than insignificant things like the Iranian (cough cough!) "Navy".

    The fleet, consisting of a destroyer and a helicopter-carrying supply ship, began its voyage last month from the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas. The ships, carrying some 30 navy academy cadets for training along with their regular crews, are on a three-month mission.The voyage comes amid an ongoing push by Iran to demonstrate its ability to project power across the Middle East and beyond.

    For the record, this 'destroyer' is really just a frigate...and a small one at that.

    Maybe it's time to start building B-2s again, and bringing the rest back into service. I could see the cabin talk now "the bats get big around this part of the wo(BOOM)"
