Iranian speedboats harass US Destroyer...
There will be an incident at sea soon. Just sit back and wait for it. Our naval strategy of "forward presence" and freedom of navigation exercises might seem like a great idea in meeting rooms but out on the ragged edge it has consequences.
Take this incident for example.
One wild eyed Iranian zealot in one of those speedboats. That's all it would take. What if that zealot decided to show the "imperial dogs" and raked the superstructure of that destroyer with 50 cal fire?
How do we expect our Destroyer skippers to react? Should they tuck tail and run or defend their ship?
Between incidents with Russia, China and Iran...this shit will get out of control and we will see an incident. Mark my words.
