    Precisely why Iran isn't going to start anything. The key thing to remember with dictators is that they wish to maintain their power.

    Nobody on the planet is delusional enough to think they can do that with a United States of America that is really, really pissed off.

    Re: Iran sending warships close to US borders

    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.
    Oh, noes! A destroyer and a helicopter carrier. What on earth will you do now! Perhaps you should ask Putins advice, afterall he seems to be the latest darling of the RW nutjobs.

    The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to U.S. naval deployments near its own coastlines. The U.S. Navy's 5th fleet is based in nearby Bahrain.
    So it's ok for the US to deploy near their coastlines but the minute they return the favour and come close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time it's time for the hypocritic whining along with calls to kill em all. There's something very wrong with that type of "logic"....

    I agree, but with wild cards you just never know. I don't advocate striking them first, and if they did get into our waters they should be either redirected or detained. In international waters though they do have the right to be there, should they show any signs of an attack, well, that's on them an may the deity(or not) of your choice have mercy on their souls.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I have to say that I found the responses from a certain trio of posters in this thread to be nothing short of completely unsurprising. I'll leave it to your imaginations to figure out to whom I am referring.

    If you want to make them not get in the Atlantic again this is the way to do it.
    Set a cruise ship on an intercept course. Fill it with already dead people and some explosives. When it is within the range of their weapons, blow it up. Then make claims they did it. Don't have to kill them unless you are vindictive. You just established that a carrier battle group can act as an escort every time they leave home water.

    Close doesn't cut it. They can go wherever they like in International Waters.

    Surely as a past member of the US Navy you would already know that.

    Looks like it. They may be carrying some fairly sophisticated anti air missiles as well.
    Iran launches mass production of new surface-to-air missiles ? RT News

    Or its just propaganda.

    Is that the philosophy you apply in your personal life? If so, how many battery convictions do you have?

    Perhaps its a stunt while "disarmament" talks (stall tactics while they finish up their nukes) goes down.
