Iranian Missile Boat Fires on American Forces… BIG MISTAKE

By

All it’s going to take is one little incident like this to spark full-blown war between America and Iran.

And you better believe President Trump won’t back down like Obama did. But do the Iranians yet believe it?

They are playing with fire by sending their forces to confront American ships and aircraft in the Persian Gulf.

This could have ended MUCH WORSE for the Iranians.

From Fox News:

An Iranian missile boat pointed a laser at a U.S. Marine helicopter while two Navy warships and a cargo ship were transiting out of the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz on Tuesday, a senior US defense official said.

The laser triggered a response and the U.S. helicopter automatically fired off flares toward the offending vessel.

The Iranian vessel came within 800 yards of the U.S. warships.

Cdr. Bill Urban in a statement called the interaction “unsafe and unprofessional.”

“Illuminating helicopters with lasers at night is dangerous as it creates a navigational hazard that can impair vision and can be disorienting to pilots using night vision goggles,” Urban said.

This incident comes just days after a U.S. F-15 shot down an Iranian drone in southern Syria after it fired on U.S.-backed forces at a training camp near Al Tanf near the border with Jordan.
