Iran Learns Its Lesson, Finally Stops Harassing US Ships

Iran Learns Its Lesson, Finally Stops Harassing US Ships

Iran has completely halted its “unsafe and unprofessional” harassment of American vessels in the Persian Gulf.
During the final years of the Obama administration, Iranian gunboats regularly harassed U.S. ships, with three dozen such interactions occurring in 2016.
During President Donald Trump’s first year in office, the number of annual incidents dropped to 14, a decrease of about 60 percent. So far in 2018, there has not been a single case of harassment, the U.S. Navy told Fox News.
The last reported incident was in August 2017, when an Iranian drone came too close for comfort as an F/A-18 Hornet attempted to land on the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz.
The worst incident occurred in January 2016, when the Iranians captured two U.S. Navy riverine patrol boats and 10 sailors.

Trump commented on this issue on the campaign trail, saying, “With Iran, when they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats, and they make gestures at our people, that they shouldn’t be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water.”

It isn't that Iran "learned its lesson".  They KNEW that Obama was/is their b&tch. As did Russia and China as well.

More importantly, like the NoKos, they will continue w/ their weaponzing their nukes. And that to me is the REAL concern.  It's the main reason the Saudis agreed to continue pumping out their oil.  As long as the price of a bbl is kept low = it makes havoc on Iran's economy. 

But, if people think that the far leftist media don't gibe a damned about their tv ratings or newspaper circulation...which they don't...then multiply that by a million. Such is the Islamic fanaticism of the Iranian clerics. And they are much, much, more patient than the rabid radicals here at home. An extremely deadly combination.
