    I'm too lazy or just don't care enough to read back more than a page or two on a thread like this. But just reading back that far. . . .what happened to the Iranian ship off the U.S. coast?

    Don't think it is there yet....

    It just might, I heard that it was barely sea worthy....

    The latest news I could find about the Iranian "navy" was from four days ago:

    LONDON – The Pentagon in Washington offered a remarkably sanguine response this week to an announcement by Iran that its warships were headed towards the United States’ maritime borders.

    "We are not concerned about their announcement to send ships into the Atlantic,” Colonel Steve Warren, the Defense Department spokesman, told reporters on Monday. “Freedom of the seas applies to every nation."

    I beg to differ on that. The embassy crisis alone is enough reason to undermine the regime, let alone their rabid anti-Americanism, support of terrorism, and nuclear proliferation.
    Besides, this empire is waning, other countries are growing more assertive. There is a balancing of power under way.
    We're losing out? We're just getting started! We brought down the Soviet Union; you think we can't handle a backwards theocracy?

    No. Apparently you've missed the failings.
