    Logic and reason dictate that a strong response is necessary.

    They would not have tried this under president Bush.

    If the Navy were concerned about it, they would send a flotilla out to escort them.

    Re: Iran sending warships close to US borders

    This is just an example hollow saber-rattling that Iran's leaders are engaging in in order to look tough on America, its no coincidence they are doing this right after a preliminary deal with the US. People seem to forget that we placed and kept a ruthless dictator in power in Iran for years, much of the Iranian populace is still angry at us for that. From a unbiased point of view, we do seem to have a compulsive need to meddle in the Middle East (a lot of it unwarranted, I may add. Such as Iraq), but Iran is different, in my opinion. If Iran made Nukes, that would upset the delicate balance of power in the region, and potentially create a mini- nuclear arms race in the Middle East, which would NOT be good in such a volatile region. To get back to the point, Iran's Leaders need to look like they are staring us down if they are to keep popular support, and continue negotiations. It would be best to let their pitiful excuse of a fleet sail around a bit and go home to be congratulated for their "daring actions".

    Iran also knows there is nothing we can do to them if they are international waters.....to do so would create an incident where if they do nothing wrong and are attacked by us, it would be an act of War. Unprovoked.

    Yes they figure our President is weak and so to any other leaders.....which is also why they are sending these ships.

    Does any think for one moment if none of the sanctions were removed, and they didn't get that money open up to them. That they would have sent a couple ships around to scope our coast with a training exercise?

    Also since they are with the BRIC Nation.....I don't think they will have any trouble finding a port to pull into while in the western hemisphere.
    It's pretty simple, they are testing the depth of our president's weakness, but even he and the morons he appointed would have to deal with the Iranians if they attempt to breach our waters, our own people will deal with them if they tried to land on our shores and then the politicians responsible would be held accountable for any losses, and they know it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    9/11 and 13 Benghazi like incidents occurred during the Bush era. Some people are just short on respect, no matter the President.

    But Bush actually responded to those incidents and didn't spend eight years blaming Clinton's failed terrorist policies for 9-11 and no American embassy was completely overrun and occupied. In fact almost all of the attacks upon American embassies during the Bush administration happened on the other side of the embassy wall. Mostly car bombings that didn't happen on the embassies compounds.

    Unless they landed in New York City.

    If they landed in San Francisco, the city would probably call for a national holiday as soon as they surrendered and lowered the Stars and Stripes.
