Not taking evasive action is a violation of maritime law? The one Iran's ignoring?
Jeez, better blow them up and start a war then! That's not.
Time to arm Japanese whaling ships and "shoot down" those rubber Greenpeace boats.

we goota shoot down the Bismark because the world depends on us...


Why don't you move there, it would be a good fit.

Oh yeah. And they HAVE TO SHOOT at little fibreglas boats dodging in front of them, they can't just run them over and say it was their own fault, because that wouldn't start a war and deflect from the main issues at hand.
Quit making excuses for the Asshat-In-Chief


Those little boats are often armed with anti-ship missiles. They are not fishing boats.

I’m sure most Iranians are flummoxed by such military brinkmanship in the midst of plague, like they really need a war now as well on top of everything else. The regime is increasingly out of touch with reality.

They're not shooting yet are they? Does that justify shooting first?
FFS the USA is poking them with sticks, provoking things and everyone forgets the last provocation panicked them into killing 57 Canadians. That Trump takes zero responsibility for and our suck-up PM won't even say out loud.

There’s blame to be shared by both sides. I wonder how far these vessels were from the Iranian coast? I don’t see that described in the reports.

The Iranians are not constrained by quaint notions about jurisdiction.

Maritime sovereignty in the Persian Gulf is a murky matter.

And there was no hysteria last year when Iran sent a few small warships to visit Cuba.

The US may be generally more reasonable but both countries have escalated tensions in recent years.
