12+ Iranian Gunboats Swarm 6 U.S. Warships, Dozens Of Warning Shots Fired

More than a dozen Iranian gunboats began harassing six US warships that were escorting a submarine. The warships fired several warning shots.

The Biden administration tried to cover up the attack by claiming it was local military leaders and not the Iranian government but do you really believe local commanders would be allowed to make this kind of decision that could lead to war? Iran talks a good game but no way do they want a war with us.

Well, maybe with Biden as president they know they have nothing to worry about. The Iranians have a distinct advantage because Joe Biden is such a weak leader and is practically on his knees begging Iran to sign a nuclear deal they will never keep. Biden is reportedly offering to do away with Iran’s terrorist designation and lifting all sanctions that have been so effective. He may also send in John Kerry to spill more state secrets.

Fox News Pentagon correspondent Lucas Tomlinson said:

“Over a dozen Iranian gunboats harass formation of six U.S. warships including guided-missile submarine Georgia. U.S. Coast Guard cutter fired warning shots in response in Strait of Hormuz.”

The 13 Iranian military vessels reportedly came within 150 yards of U.S. Forces, which fired 30 warning shots. This could be considered a major escalation since other encounters only included a couple of gunboats.

U.S. Central Command’s General Kenneth “Frank” McKenzie said:

“The activities we typically see from the IRGC Navy are not necessarily activities that are directed by the supreme leader or from the Iranian state. Rather [they are] irresponsible actions by local commanders on the scene. We’re very careful to ensure that we don’t get into a provocative cycle as a result of that. Luckily, our guys are pretty good … they’re very mature and they’re able to de-escalate the situation.”

In their latest bi-monthly tracker on the Biden administration’s policies, FDD concluded that Biden’s work on Iran was “very negative,” writing:

The Biden administration reportedly offered to lift U.S. terrorism sanctions on Iran in exchange for Tehran’s agreement to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal. The offer, which includes sanctions relief for the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC), and other entities and sectors behind the financing of Iran-sponsored terrorism and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, would breach earlier commitments made by Secretary Blinken. In 2020, he vowed that if elected, the Biden administration would “continue non-nuclear sanctions as a strong hedge against Iranian misbehavior in other areas.” During his 2021 Senate confirmation hearing, Blinken was asked whether he believed it was in America’s national security interest to lift terrorism sanctions currently imposed on Iran, including the CBI and NIOC. “I do not,” Blinken responded, “and I think there is nothing … inconsistent with making sure that we are doing everything possible – including the toughest possible sanctions, to deal with Iranian support for terrorism.” Last week, however, State Department Spokesperson Ned Price suggested terrorism sanctions imposed on Iran were inconsistent with the nuclear deal – a departure from Blinken’s testimony and a troubling sign that the White House is prepared to cave to the regime’s key demands, while gaining nothing tangible in return.

1 warning shot only then blow them out of the water, I’m sure glad I retired from the Navy before we had such a weak kneed coward for a POTUS. He let the Iranians get away with it and China & Russia will soon follow.

Jerry

Totally agree, I got out of the Navy in 1970,ONE warning shot, then sink the bastards!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DIG

Why waste “the warning shot”? All you have to do is introduce one crew from one of those Iranian vessels to “Allah”, and they might stop this bullshit. But, most likely we would probably have to kill a few more than just one before these idiots learn. But, even an ignorant dog can learn. NO WARNING SHOTS! IF THEY HARASS OUR BOATS, LIGHT EM UP!

Albert Grounds

They are testing us and you are right. Take them out and let’s just see what they do. The regime is not dumb enough to go to war with us and they will have egg on their face because they won’t. They cannot blame the Navy for doing what they are supposed to do against an aggressive force, also which they cannot deny and only lie about it. Their ally, Russia may also have something to say but won’t risk confrontation with the U.S. over an incident like this.

donswife

That’s why we still have an America. Need more thinking that way. Suspect Biden will be told to pound sand, a lot.

Randy131

He learned it from Obama, whose rules of engagement was an embarrassment to all US military personnel. Read my scenario above and be reminded of the fate that always awaits cowards, even those who are forced to act as cowards.

wboehmer

By my count, those warning shots already have been fired.
The next shots are for sinking.

Here we go.

“In your face America.” The consequences of a feckless Sec Def and a lack of leadership at POTUS

Norseman

Try sinking one of their boats and watch them run away. OBiden and Pathetic Pelosi are weak ‘leaders’ and will do nothing about it.

DO YOUR JOB

Leave nothing of them.

DIG

feed da fishes!

We need President Trump back in the White House

Iranians are testing our Navy’s defense, to see how close they can get, and when they figure that they can get close enough, one of those boats are going to be remote controlled and filled with explosives, and will run right into one of our ships, preferably for them an aircraft carrier, or maybe at least six remote boats with explosives for six American ships, while the other six Iranian speed boats run cover.

Or maybe next time it will be 24 Iranian speed boats, six remote with explosives with 18 speed boats running cover. This will never stop until the US Navy has the courage to protect themselves and sink some of these boats that are making runs on them, then and only then will the Iranian speed boats stop making these runs on our ships.

But if Biden does nothing and they sink one or more of our ships, Biden will just give them billions of dollars, as Obama did, to get them to sign an agreement that the Iranians have always been cheating on, which Israel showed the world the undeniable truth of all the cheating the Iranians were doing, which was why President Trump cancelled the Obama agreement with Iran.

Biden has already taken the sanctions off of Iran, so why would they now want to be forced into another agreement that they know that they’ll be caught cheating on, when they have already gotten what they wanted?

wboehmer

“The warships fired several warning shots?”
What does it take to conclude that something more than warning shots are needed?
I recommend sinking a couple of those boats.
Wanna bet that stops the rest?

Rosie46

Send Iran Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Kerry, Schumer as ransom and give us the prisoners. They can keep the ransom. This crew loves our enemies over the U.S., so good riddance.

Sam W

Sink a few of those critters or is Joey afraid to piss off his buddies!!!!

john

blow them suckers right out of the water.

john

Send the libtards to palestine, then see them change their tune, bunch of losers

Maggie Abel

Legitimate news should have a date on the article. There is none here.

Arschloch

To hell with ‘warning shots’. Sink the bastards then sink Iran. I ran means a chicken was involved.

Jim Jones

Personally I think biden can’t tie his own shoes and he keeps proving it each time he opens his mouth. As for the iranian gunboats, they need to be sunk because if we keep letting them swarm our military hardware and personnel they will actually attack one day and injure our brave sailors.

?? Real “Question” is: What would “HUNTER BIDEN” do?! lol!

Mike

He would twist up another one and let daddy take care of it

OldSeaCaptain

To paraphrase WW2 – “Sighted Fast-Boat; Sank Same”

Mike

Only a shame our sailors are such good shots. I’d pull a shot or two and accidentally sink a few of their boats.

Jim Evans

Everyone of the gun boats should of been blown out of the water.

CharlieSeattle

Those little Iranian boats have limited range.

Sooo, how close is the submarine to Iran? Why is it there?
