And if two Russian boats came into our waters around Alaska what do think would happen then jackass?



SOP with your president Zero in charge is to do nothing.  As a matter of fact, that's exactly what he has done when Russian fighters crossed into our airspace.

What's your point?  Or do you not have one, as usual?

It seems you're angry that we didn't go to war over something that was easily taken care of diplomatically.

Either that or you're ticked that it made you look like a jackass once again because you were proven wrong.

As usual.

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

It seems there were congressmen as eager to go to war as Live. It seems a shame that there was a diplomatic solution.

Can't blame Iran for wanting to pickup a few sailors. Us republican men would do the same thing every weekend if we could get away with it.

Just doesn't add up...  I smell a political "we'll admit we are stupid" if you let them go...

How does one get that far off with today's navigational technology

I don't know the answer. Do you want me to make up some bullshlt story just to fit a narrative like you Republicans would.

Well here you go.

Maybe they didn't have engine troubles and were testing the Iranians capabilities as far as being able to detect two small boats.

Maybe something went wrong with their navigational equipment.

Maybe you're a lazy bastard that expects someone else to do all the work to find something out.

Oh wait, that last one isn't made up.

No matter what the truth is...you're always here to parrot the faux news.

Perhaps you ought to double check before making yourself look like a fool.



The two U.S. Navy boats seized by Iran with 10 sailors on board were within three miles of Iran's Farsi Island when the Iranians took them, according to a U.S. defense official directly familiar with the latest information about the incident.

The boats had drifted off course, but one was also suffering engine trouble, making it impossible for the Americans to rapidly back off and return to international waters when they were approached by armed Iranian naval boats, the official said.

The U.S. Navy has initial statements from the sailors but is now conducting a full debrief, so additional information may come to light, the official said.

===


The Navy and the Pentagon have said that the two boats were en route from Kuwait to Bahrain, headquarters of the Navy's Fifth Fleet, when they were intercepted by Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels.

The most direct route likely would have kept the two boats close to the western coastline of the Persian Gulf but the two boats were seized within the three-mile territorial limit of Iran's heavily-guarded Farsi Island in the middle of the Gulf.

It was unclear whether engine trouble aboard one of the boats may have contributed to the navigation error.

"They did not report this navigational error at the time" to commanders, Carter said. "It may be that they were trying to sort it out at the time they encountered the Iranian boats and discovered they were inside of the territorial waters of Iran."
