As the West continues to beat its war drums against Russia, Syria, and Iran, the U.S. Navy announced that it fired “warning shots” at four Iranian “fast-attack vessels” near the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday.
Apparently the Iranian ships came within 900 yards of the USS Mahan which was escorting two other US military ships through the area (they just like to hang out in), so a US Navy helicopter dropped a smoke float and the Navy destroyed fired warning flares.
Check out how the mainstream media is hyping everyone for war with the timing of this as Reuters was quick to point out:
The incident, which occurred Sunday and was first reported by Reuters, comes as U.S. President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office on Jan. 20. In September, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessels that harass the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be “shot out of the water.”
To add to my point, Reuters goes on to say that Trump’s transition team was not immediately available for comment on how Trump has threatened to shoot Iranian ships out of the water.
You can see how blatantly this is building up before Trump even gets into office. The way things feel right now is very much a flashback to when George W. Bush first got elected. At the beginning it was all fun and games and “look at the doofy guy who says stupid stuff every time he goes in front of a camera” but once Dubya dragged us all into war in Iraq (which he said was the hardest part of his job, connecting Iraq to the war on terror) and the US started torturing people, it wasn’t so funny anymore.
If the Powers That Shouldn’t Be want another war, they’re going to make sure they get us into another war.
