    I suppose you think the US should have presidents that the world fears, the way you guys fear Putin?

    That could happen too. I think the Iranians are doing this for home consumption though. One Virginia class sub could have the whole Iranian fleet on the bottom in 15 minutes or less. They wouldn't be able to find it before it would be over.

    To much money going to the war department for that.

    If its desired, those small minded ones can provide the provocation, too!

    Sailing your navy in international waters isn't shaking your fist in anyone's face. Or do you think that's what it is when the US navy does that?

    Only the United States is allowed to do that. We should go in and establish a democratic government in Iran by force. Anyone who disagrees is a Communist who hates America.

    Quds Force and Takavar (Iranian Special Forces) are considered some of the best in the world. They aren't pushovers. Israel, US and UK Government can tell you that as they've seen them fight first hand in places like Bosnia (when US and Iran had the same objective), Lebanon, and Iraq. Hell, a lot of the Iraqi leadership we relied on during Iraq War were protected and kept alive by Quds during the 1990s.
