    Anyone want to be that the 'Iraniacs' are trying to provoke us? Since those little dictators in the land of rugs have some form of nuclear material would POTUS BO allow our military to whack the pistachio heads with tactical nukes?

    Adm. Gary Roughead, the top Navy officer, confirmed the April 21 incident. The Iranians were "not provocative or threatening. As long as they are professional and not threatening or reckless, it's international space," he said.

    Let's see. An Iranian pilot is doing his duty, patrolling his country's border, and he spots a foreign intruder, a carrier thousands of miles from its home. He takes a closer look. Who's provoking who?

    Our carrier was in international waters not in one of the Iranian ports. The Iranians can spot our ships with radar or from further away. Close approaches can are are at time a provocation.

    This is just the usual games that nations play with borders. Doing flybys and interceptions is everyday behavior between two rival countries. While I personally consider the whole practice stupid and risky, its so common that hopefully nobody panics and starts shooting. I wish world leaders would stop treating the military as a way to overcompensate for other shortcomings.
