BREAKING: U.S. Navy Fires Shots After Iran Boat Does THIS!

33.jpg

On Sunday, a U.S. Naval ship was forced to fire warning shots at incoming vessels. Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps boats suddenly began speeding toward the U.S. ship, which at the time was escorting 2 other Navy ships.

The incident occurred in the Strait of Hormuz, according to reports from two U.S. officials.

When the Navy ship first noticed the Iranian's closing in, the fired flares and a smoke float. They also tried to radio the boats but instead of slowing down, they kept speeding forward and began asking the USS Mahan questions.

At this time those questions have not yet been released.

The Iranian boats came within three football fields of the U.S. Navy before steering away. The incident could easily have escalated.

Did this story surprise you? What motive do you think the Iranians had? Do you think firing warning shots was appropriate?
