MORE SPEEDBOAT BLUFF IN THE PERSIAN GULF: Ayatollah Iran’s dangerous and provocative behavior isn’t new. The Khomeini regime declared war on the U.S. in 1979. Obama’s nuclear deal isn’t going to prevent the mullahs from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
RELATED: Two of the U.S. Navy ships involved in the July 25 Persian Gulf confrontation with Iranian Revolutionary Guards. The patrol craft USS Thunderbolt and the AEGIS guided missile cruiser USS Vella Gulf. On July 27 Iran tested a ballistic missile. The Vella Gulf is a ballistic missile defense (BMD) warship. A fanatic’s boat weaving among American warships could disrupt the U.S. formation and cause a collision.
