    A US Navy ship fired warning shots towards Iranian vessel after it came within 150 yards of the US ship in the Northern Arabian Gulf. Details are forthcoming.*

    This article has more info. The USN boat is a Cyclone-class Patrol craft, armed with two 25mm cannon, five .50 machine guns, and two 40mm grenade launchers. Not as heavily armed as an Arleigh Burke DDG, but with a carefully coordinated and timed attack, probably capable of making one of those Iranian boats mysteriously disappear.

    They're such ignorant, arrogant, and undisciplined fools. The outfit needs to experience some unexplained attrition. And at the first sign of their anti-ship missiles being activated, those missiles and launchers need to go boom.

    Agree, it wouldn't hurt turning their naval installations back into desert
