    President Obama should issue a fatwa stating that it's incumbent upon every Christian to sink those boats. By what right could Iran complain about that?

    If the ships enter US territorial waters, we should intern them at the very most. Until then, they are not violating international law, and so neither should we.

    Iran says warships headed close to us borders



    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iranian warships dispatched to the Atlantic Ocean will travel close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time, a senior Iranian naval commander said Saturday. The commander of Iran's Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, said the vessels have already entered the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa, the official IRNA news agency reported.



    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.

    No right at all. But then I think you are kidding.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Before we get the same mindless posts from the forums lefties-let me say this-NO, I dont think they are a direct threat to the US (these ships and their crew would very quickly be exposed to large amount of kinetic energy to resolve the threat), but thats not the issue-the ISSUE is that the worlds bad actors see our President as a chump, and they are comfortable punking him and the US.

    This is what weak leadership gets you-emboldened bad guys.

    What is that, like, a 1/4 of their total naval power?

    Aside from a bunch of dead sailers, I'd find it HILARIOUS if they got hit by a squall and went down, lol.

    That said, it's the intent of the gesture that counts.

    What, do we believe, is the intent here?

    I'm surprised they have a working Navy.

    Interesting they'd project power with naval vessels. Pretty easy targets.

    Edit: Wait! Look closely! Are those sitting ducks??

    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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