They say if you give a mouse a cookie, he’ll want some other shit, and then act real shitty about the whole situation, and that axiom is coming true with Iran and the U.S. right now.
After basically being gifted the autonomy to build an atomic bomb in peace, Iran has been demanding glasses of milk from the Obama administration.
Four Iranian vessels conducted a “high-speed intercept” of the guided missile destroyer USS Nitze near the Strait of Hormuz on Tuesday, Aug. 23, defense officials said.
The Nitze attempted to communicate with the Iranians by radio 12 times, with no response. Two vessels continued toward the Nitze, which sounded five short blasts with the ship whistle — a signal used when another vessel’s intentions are unclear or its course is dangerous — on three occasions, according to a defense statement. The Nitze then fired ten flares towards the vessels, again with no response.
Here’s video of the encounter.
Hey, I don’t know, how about not being a dick to the USS Nitze?
That’s what I would do, Iran. It’s called being fucking grateful.
According to officials, the Nitze steered away from the ships to avoid an incident.
