Iranian Mosquito Boat Cruising for a Bruising
It was interesting to see the tapes of those Iranian speed boats taunting U.S. ships in the Straits of Hormuz. It really would have been excellent if someone on the Navy ship had pulled the trigger but now President Bush has given fair warning. Next time it happens, the radio communication will be something like this:
Iranians: YOU WILL BLOW UP IN THIRTY SECONDS.
(a nano-second later)
U.S. Warships: KA-BOOM! The tiny atoms of your debris will float to the surface of the sea in about three minutes.
Well, we can dream, can’t we? It may have been better to let them off the hook, depending on the distance. I hope the Navy would never let them approach within a distance capable of inflicting any damage at all on our ships or personnel.
