Iranian boats "provoke" U.S. Navy ships in Hormuz: CNN
Mon Jan 7, 2008 8:53am EST WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Five Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats harassed and provoked three U.S. Navy ships in the Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, CNN reported.

The CNN report on Monday, citing unidentified U.S. officials, said the Iranian vessels came within 200 yards (meters) of the U.S. ships and that after a threatening radio communication, U.S. sailors manned their ships' guns and were very close to opening fire

A radio transmission from one of the Iranian ships said, "I am coming at you. You will explode in a couple of minutes," CNN reported, citing a U.S. official.

After the threatening radio communication, U.S. sailors manned their ships' guns and were very close to opening fire, it said.
Here we go folks. Get ready.

WE (USA) owe those Persian bastards more than a little payback. Do not ever forget the long days of the peanut farmer we called president and everything that has happen after that. It could be WWIII I for one do not think so. This is no time to run back home instead we need to wade into them and make it hurt.

What was the name of that movie back in the late early 90's (I'm guessing) that portrayed a fictional showdown at the Strait of Hormuz? It was some sort of blockage scenario as I recall. Man I just can't put my thumb on it.
