    We should just go to war with Iran, then North Korea because they tested a bomb. Then China because they mess with our internets and Syria because of ISIS. We can then fight Russia because...Putin.

    Iran didn't fire at our Navy and the sailors were released. What would your reaction be to Iranian or Russian boats entering U.S water?

    What on earth are you talking about? They had every right to detain anyone caught in their waters. And they have since released them.

    Goodness, we freak out about a bunch of refugees who aren't even here yet. So they have a right to get antsy when someone ventures into their waters.

    If a Russian or Chinese ship did that to us, we'd do the same thing.

    I think sew.

    That incident was in late December and they missed an aircraft carrier by almost a mile. I doubt that they were "firing at our ships".

    The rockets were not fired at the Truman and other ships, and there were no direct communications between U.S. and Iranian navies, military officials said.

    I do not believe America would ever TREAT the crew of another nations incursion of our waters like Iran did our sailors. Maybe they would go after N. Korea with more disdain, I highly doubt they would make the crew get on their knees with fingers laced behind their heads, then paste the photos throughout American television with a video taped apology from a crew member.

    This is not how America would handle an incursion. So, my response is not overboard. Mr. Overboard himself.

    It's okay to save face by contradicting the article. It's hard to admit you may be wrong. BTW, December is just two weeks ago, unless you go by that pun, that it was last year? LOL.
