My guess would be that American warships routinely just simply ignore Iranian naval forces. They may humor them occasionally with radio contact, but not very often. As long as they keep their distance, there will be no trouble.

This dangerous nonsense is what this weak-kneed, wee-wee’d, vote present, apologist, POS pOTUS has brought us. A conflagration in the ME is closer everyday.

A little trouble in paradise Mr Ahmadinejad?

Be careful, you don't want to sprain a finger thumping your chest...

Iran ‘hosted’ professors and muckity mucks from ‘Occupy’ recently - that’s all we need to know about the direction of this government toward Iran.

Unauthorized is the key word. If we decide we are authorized, are they going to argue?

Somehow this must be the fault of US policy and Israel. Thanks Fennie.
