Near-Confrontation at Sea

This was a close one:

According to CNN, the U.S. ships were “harrassed” and received “threatening” radio transmissions from the Iranians, including a communication that included remarks to the effect that the American boats would be blown up. The report was later confirmed by the Pentagon.

No shots fired, but at least one U.S. ship was making preparations to fight, according to the report. Five Iranian ships were said to be involved in the incident, which took place in the Strait of Hormuz, a major shipping channel for Middle Eastern crude.

Obviously, this is part of Bushilter Co.’s master plan to keep his power by drumming up fear about innocent Muslims. Obviously.
