Iran Pushing Harder by Threatening US Vessels

By Daniel Greenberg

 

Funny. When President Trump took out Soleimani, the media and the usual appeasement folks promised there’d be WW3. Instead after a brief show of force, Iran backed off. Biden comes into office as Iran’s best friend and the Islamic terror state keeps pushing harder and harder.

There’s a fairly obvious lesson there but you can expect the folks who need it to learn nothing from it.

A U.S. Coast Guard ship fired about 30 warning shots after 13 vessels from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came close to it and other American Navy vessels in the Strait of Hormuz, the Pentagon said on Monday.

This is the second time within the last month that U.S. military vessels have had to fire warning shots because of what they said was unsafe behavior by Iranian vessels in the region, after a relative lull in such interactions over the past year.

At this rate, how long until Iran manages to capture some naval personnel as hostages under Biden the way it did under his boss?

You would think that with Biden’s eagerness to negotiate, Iran would be giving him some breathing room. But instead, sensing weakness it’s going in for the kill.

Maybe when Iran says, “Death to America”, its leader means it.
