US military: Iranian behavior getting worse in Persian Gulf


#1

Iran has stepped up its harassment of U.S. Navy ships in the Persian Gulf, angering the U.S. military and members of Congress.
Since the international nuclear deal with Iran was implemented in early January, the number of incidents involving U.S. and Iranian ships in the Gulf has approximately doubled.
The Navy has counted at least 31 interactions with Iranian naval forces deemed “unsafe,” “unprofessional,” or both, according to a defense official.That’s about as many such interactions that occurred all of last year, according to statistics provided to Fox News.
And those are also only counting interactions that have met the criteria of “unsafe” or “unprofessional.”

Now keep in mind recently we gave over a billion dollars to Iran and Iran has openly said they will not abide by any agreements from the U.S. Money being used to build their military and fund terrorism, All from the hand of obama.

It doesn’t matter if it’s an individual or a country. A bully will always pick on the weak. The U.S. appears weak & that invites this sort of stuff. It’s a win win for them. They appear stronger to their neighbors because of their actions plus Obama will probably pay them to stop screwing with us. My guess is that there would have only been 1 or maybe 2 incidents if we had blown the first plane or ship up that tried something. Bullies don’t like to get called on stuff if they get the caca kicked out of them.

As long as we have a feckless president - one who is unwilling to exact a cost to Iran, Russia, North Korea, etc., - we can expect a continuation of current events, or worse. This is not hard to figure out.

Obama entered the White House and will leave the White House convinced the United States dominance in the world is a problem - that our presence around the globe has created instability and that United States power and influence must therefore be rendered weakened. He has accomplished his goal.

Of course, we look at the void in US influence created by Obama’s ME policy resulting in the ME now in flames, the resultant Muslim (largely Syrian) migration to Europe (migration w/o the prospect of assimilation) and terrorist activity there and terrorist activity here, Chinese military inspired island building and Russian expansion in territory and influence and N Korea’s continued threats and Iran’s - folks, it’s difficult to find any success.

Couple Obama’s disastrous foreign policy with his restrictive regulatory, near-no growth domestic economy, huge deficits and military cut-backs to unprecedented levels to the point only about 50% of our fighter jets are combat ready and our navy has been shrunk to pre-WW1 levels, not to mention diminished personnel levels and a Veterans Administration that remains significantly unresponsive to the needs of our fighting men and women. Throw in a costly, unworkable domestic medical insurance/delivery debacle - Obamacare.

Add to this witches brew federal corruption at the highest levels of government and federal agencies, such as the FBI/Justice Department and IRS, serving the needs not of the people, but of a constitutionally challenged Obama regime and its prime protégé, Hillary Clinton.

Yes, based on the president’s ability to achieve the goals and objectives of his presidency - to fundamentally change America, I would conclude Obama is one of the most successful presidents in the history of the republic - and the voters elected the son-of-a-bitch TWICE.

We displayed weakness the day ObuttBoy took office, the he put HildaBeast followed by Ferry as the Sec of State. These 3 will go down in history as the 3 weakest people ever. The deals they made are about as valuable as a pile of Crane chit on a sandbar…
