    Their history for the past 60 years has been us screwing with their leadership and supplies.

    I think the Sea Shepard could do more damage than the Iranian "navy". Although I doubt that this administration would do anything to punish the Iranians; even if they sailed their cute little boats into Chesapeake Bay. Wouldn't want to do anything to upset the "peace process".

    I believe Obama would go from one extreme to the other, either too trusting or obliterate them. Kind of like teasing the school fool, till he pops his cork.

    The Canadian Navy is taking the Iranian ships seriously. They have put their fleet on alert.

    We could try to prevent their refueling/replenishment at sea or in ports. That would show the Iranians that we mean business without getting hostile.

    How do you prove we mean business without getting hostile? Bottom line is that preventing refueling on the high seas would be in itself an act of war.

    No, let them come close and as soon as they cross the line or move near one of our ships---- we sink them. But again, this administration WILL DO NOTHING. This administration would not even admit that the attacks in Benghazi were terrorists attacks.

With them at the helm it's a guessing game right now.
    We had our chump in chief sit by while they were put under (how many of them are still alive, I wonder?)

    I cant seem to find the footage now, but theres a video of an Iranian pro-democracy protester begging and screaming at a US newscaster about needing assistance and begging for help from the USA.

    And it was crickets from the chump in chief.

    Yes because they did so well afterwords.
