Five Iranian boats made aggressive maneuvers and showed hostile intent toward three US Navy ships at the weekend in the Strait of Hormuz, a major oil shipping route in the Gulf, the Pentagon said on Monday.
The Pentagon said the incident was serious. It described the Iranian actions as "careless, reckless and potentially hostile" and said Tehran should provide an explanation. Iran played down the incident between the two naval forces, describing the event as an "ordinary occurrence" that ended without any disturbance.
They’re so ignorant of the rest of the world, the last thing they need to be doing is meddling in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and the Mideast. As the old saying goes, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” When it does, then things can get pretty nasty.
America’s trying to remake the world in its own image with its own form of government, but different peoples and nations simply need different forms of government. We need to get our own house in order!
