    This is what weak leadership gets you-emboldened bad guys.
    The US has played the bad actor far more than Iran. You neo-con warmongers are something else. This is a non story.

    They have to get nukes first. Then they have to figure out how to load one onto a missile. Then they have to set sail. Get back to me then.

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

    You need to go read up on the Cuban Missile Crisis.

    So when we sail international waters, that's okay and they should tolerate it -- but when Iran sails international waters, we should murder them in cold blood?

    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?
    What's the intent when any country sails the seven seas with their navies. What was the US intent when we sailed a ship right up to a Chinese navy drill in the SCS?

    You need to stop changing the subject just because you can't defend cold-blooded murder.

    As long as they stay in international waters... that's what they are, after all, international waters... this deserves a great big .

    They're sabre-rattling and the saber is a gum machine plastic sabre on a key chain.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Have you ever cracked a history book? The kind of inaction you're talking about is what led to WW2.

    I'm sure you do. You probably love having opponents too.
