Iranian Patrol Boat Pointed Its Weapons At A U.S. Military Helicopter In The Strait of Hormuz

Reuters: Iranian vessel made 'unsafe' action against U.S. helicopter: officials

An Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard vessel pointed its weapon at a U.S. military helicopter in the Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, two U.S. defense officials told Reuters on Monday, an action they described as "unsafe and unprofessional."

The incident is the latest in a series of similar actions by Iranian vessels this year, but the first reported since Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election earlier this month.

During his campaign, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessel that harassed the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be "shot out of the water," if he was elected. Trump is due to take office on Jan. 20.

There was no immediate Iranian comment on the incident.

I doubt it.

Trump's words have no meaning in the real world.

Remember Gen. Erik Shinseki?

Trump is a fraud and he knows it. Probably couldn't find Iran on the map. The parents are leaving the house and will be gone for four years. The world is about to find out what more than half the American population already knows, Republicans are incompetent. They have spent the last 8 years thumping their chests and saying no to every Democratic idea for the sake of saying no, hoping enough people will forget the ecomomic and military disaster they left the country in the last time they were in power. Now they are in leadership and they are totally confused because reality doesn't care about right wing ideology.
