Iran continues to taunt the United States in a dangerous game of ‘Chicken’ taking place in international waters. On Monday, an Iranian Revolutionary Guard “fast attack craft” approached a US Navy guided missile destroyer.
According to reports, the Iranian attack ship had its weapons manned and ready to fire as it came within 1000 yards of the USS Mahan. In response to the approaching threat, the USS Mahan quickly manned it’s own battle stations, locked and loaded it’s weapons, and fired off a few warning flares.
This was apparently enough to stop the Iranian attack craft from continuing its game of Chicken.
A US Navy spokesperson acknowledging the reckless incident: “Coming inbound at a high rate of speed like that and manning weapons, despite clear warnings from the ship, is obviously provocative behavior.”
The Iranians seem to be testing the Trump Administration. After all, they humiliated Obama by siezing two American patrol boats and detaining 10-crew members.
It won’t be so easy with President Trump!
US Herald reports:
We’ve all at some point within our travels, either witnessed, read or have some personal experience with those nasty little “fur balls,” those ½ pound little dogs with the high-pitched yap, who seem to constantly show their provocative side.
Well, that same analogy can apply to countries, for example, North Korea has a pudgy little coarse dictator yapping away and being extremely obnoxious, while Iran is playing perhaps a more ominous game of “chicken” on the high seas, which if continued might get itself “blown to smithereens.”
