Of course we know Obama wouldn't claim that one or any of the others to be terrorist attacks so if you pretend terrorism doesn't exist, then yeah, we haven't had a major terrorist attack.

    Now, if you want to talk about Bush, you might want to think back on what President before Bush decimated the CIA and its abilities to ferret out possible attacks on American soil. I know one thing that after 911, there were no more attacks on American soil, not something that Obama can claim other than refusing to label these attacks terrorism.

    According to the OP it was a Saudi Arabian state TV....


    ....Iranian forces have reportedly fired at and seized a US cargo ship with 34 sailors on board,... according to Saudi Arabian state TV......

    ...the same country that promotes Wahhabism and supports Al Qaeda and ISIL. Take what they say with an ounce of salt.


    The Saudi's excessive bombing campaign in Yemen is looking more like genocide everyday, eh?

    The ship is flying under the Marshall Island flag.

    The Marshal Island is a Presidential Republic in free association with the United States, with the US providing defense, subsidies, and access to social services.

    No, that was definitely pertinent to the discussion since the buck stops with the CIC. I would be expecting a response, whether it was Bush, or Obama. Since America is supposed to supply defense for the Marshall Islands, then what is America going to do about Iran's flexing it shipping muscles? Will this latest development affect the nuclear treaty? Perhaps, you can help us out, here?

    Since this looks like an attack on a ship that is flagged by an ally that we are bound to defend I expect the Iranians to keep the ship and that they will keep or kill the crew.

    Letting the Iranians fire of an Marshall Island flagged ship shows that 0bama won't defend the Marshall Islands so we can expect the Chinese to invade them before "0" leaves the White House.

    But Allah be willing, 0bama wants Iran to have nuclear weapons no matter who gets hurt.

    That is really smart.
    We know that heart of Iran's national and international policies are based on hating America and Israel so we should let them have the bomb and pretend, like 0bama is, that Iran will come around and be nice.The give up the bomb or stop trying to kill you and your family the hard core islamists will go crazy so the mullahs - who are hard line and crazy - will never stop hating you and trying to kill you and ever infidel that you know.

    Anytime the US does the same thing are you quick to call it "aggressive action"?

    depends I guess, but probably, give me some examples.
