    This is completely idiotic. I doubt Iran could even reach us and if they could we'd blow their navy to bits before they were within several hundred kliks of the US coast.

    To all those saying that we would blow up their navy, for what?? Hanging out in international waters ?

    I think they were showing the hypocrisy of how the US is always floating around off the coast of Iran.

    Yes, clearly, the Iranians want to steam their Navy out in into the Western Atlantic just to "hang out" and "chill with the bros."

    I think they were showing the hypocrisy of how the US is always floating around off the coast of Iran.
    I'm not saying they shouldn't. I'm saying it's a dumb idea.

    I doubt we would blow Iran's Navy up for being in international waters, but I'm somewhat sure our Navy would be floating around near them and our armaments would be ready to take them out if if they did anything other than float off the coast - something I would expect from any other country, including Iran, if the US is floating around off their coast.

    My earlier response was to an intrusion into our territorial waters - not international waters. Territorial waters are normally ~14 miles from the low-water coastline.

    Even a fraction of our navy could wipe them out. People need to stop freaking out so much about Iran. I'm not saying that they pose no threat whatsoever, but their ability to project power is very limited.

    It can't be about Iran projecting power...but perhaps getting America to do something which will void in whole or in part a treaty? Think about who Iran's allies are.

    The most economically devastating of Iranís potential responses would be closure of the Strait of Hormuz. They can blame their leadership for the presence of the US navy. Stop threatening the worlds oil supply might be a more productive policy for Iran.
