"Iranian military gunboats with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, a designated terrorist organization, swarmed several U.S. warships on Monday that were escorting a U.S. submarine.

“Over a dozen Iranian gunboats harass formation of six U.S. warships including guided-missile submarine Georgia,” Fox News Pentagon correspondent Lucas Tomlinson said. “U.S. Coast Guard cutter fired warning shots in response in Strait of Hormuz.”........"

Warning shots? I would sink the first 5. That would be the only warning shots the others would get.

Ignore voice commands and receive remaining warning shots to the bridge.

Then we find the home port and level it.

Mess with the bull and get the horns.

Have we learned nothing about these knuckleheads and their provokations over the years?

In a follow up @PentagonPresSec calls the use of 13 IRGC fast-attack boats “significant” – previous incidents had involved fewer numbers of Iranian vessels
Time to implement a little "Debecka Pass" on these recalcitrant pests. Pile 'em up.

Honest mistake. Nothing to see here.
Move along.

You mean the guy that said... “I’m not sure you should assume I’m not corrupt, but thank you for that, though.”

The guy that quickly followed that statement with... “The system does produce corruption, and I think implicit in the system is corruption when in fact, whether or not you can run for public office, and it costs a great deal of money to run for the United States Senate, even for a small state like Delaware, you have to go to those people who have money, and they always want something

...and then spent the rest of his adult life going "to those people who have money." people that in his own words, "always want something"


That guy?
Is that the guy you're referring to?
The current White House resident?

"THAT GUY" !

YES, that is the guy who is now pretending to be POTUS... I wonder who is running the Executive Branch of The U S Government, The "appointed cabinet" appears weak and inept. The number of crisis facing the U S A today are not being dealt with in a decisive way,,, The World is laughing at the current administration in DC . The situation India, the Middle East, and South America is getting worse...and the Biden Clown Show continues....

At least there are no more mean posts on social media - lord knows its all worth it now that we have a decent and moral man residing in the white house

What kind of governance did people expect from a congress that started the year with, "Amen and Awoman"

Send the Persians their tribute money and be done with it.

Iran's UN Voting Rights Suspended

"Sing da Blues, or pay yer dues."

Faux reports that Iran is in arrears; no chingee, no votee.

Quote:
In a letter to General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir, Guterres said that the theocratic regime, along with countries including the Central African Republic and Somalia, are in arrears. Iran will be unable to vote, but a prior resolution allowed some countries, including Somalia to continue to vote in the current session, which will end in September.

Iran would need to pay $16,251,298 to have its voting rights restored, compared to the $1,443,640 owed by Somalia and $29,395 owed by the Central African Republic.
One commenter astutely notes that Iran's vote was suspended, not for funding & supporting terrorism, but for non-payment of dues, which should tell you all you need to know about the UN.

Don't worry, the Biden Regime will send them a fresh planeload of cash - mixed currencies and small denominations. A could hundred Billion ought to do the trick.

Sadly, that would not surprise me. And no cutouts, that C17 will go direct.
