Confusing words with deeds...

...it's what Iran does best...

"Earlier this week, Iranian officials had threatened the Stennis with the 'full force' of the Iranian military if it tried to reenter the Persian Gulf."
Okay, Mo... your move.

"The captured Somali pirates, 15 in all, were brought aboard the U.S.S. Kidd, an American destroyer traveling with the Stennis. They were then shuttled by helicopter to the aircraft carrier and locked up in its brig."

What a BAD mistake! Now,these guys are covered under international law,and an activist American lawyer will claim they're covered by U.S. law. The upshot may be a long and costly Court process that ends,who knows where,U.S. refugee status for all?

The Russians have the right idea on pirates.

I hope the Iranian Navy DOES fire on the Stennis. This bullshit will carry on for years unless definitive action is taken.

America may just have to get involved in another foreign war,which is better than getting involved in a domestic war.

As we learned in the 1930's, sometimes you have to stop negotiating.

"dmorris says... hope the Iranian Navy DOES fire on the Stennis."

not gonna happen.

between cap & sat surveillance, the iranian shooters would be on the receiving end of a transformative metal shitstorm before the inbound fire got halfway to the picket ships.

all this childish chest-beating is simply another hallmark of the muslim middle east... it's what they do in between strapping explosives to their children and blowing up innocent civilian bystanders.

if obama just got out of the way.. the military would have iran crying uncle in very short order.

actually, russ... i believe the latest bunker buster technology involves telephone pole-sized heavy metal rods that can penetrate buried hardened concrete structures.

non-nuclear & apparently very effective.

True...but we can dream, can't we?

The thing that bugs me about the constant childish bluster from these middle-eastern nations is how the west always seems to take the comments seriously and comes across as overly respectful in response, rather than just laughing in their faces (which is what SHOULD be happening)...

Neo- that "new" bunker buster device sounds like an oversized lawn dart! I want to see one in action.
