The West has continued to beat war drums against Iran, Syria, and Russia. In the meantime, the U.S. Navy has announced that it fired warning shots at four of Iran’s fast attack vessels near the Strait of Hormuz on Sunday. Surprisingly, the Iranian ships came within 900 yards of the USS Mahan which was escorting two other US military ships through the area, the US navy responded by dispatching a US Navy helicopter which dropped a smoke float and the Navy destroyer fired warning flares.
Its funny how the mainstream media was quick to hype everyone for war with the timing of this Reuters was quick to claim that the incident, which took place on Sunday and was first reported by Reuters, colluded with the US’s preparation for President-elect Donald Trump to take office on the 20th of Jan. In a statement made by Trump in September, he vowed that any Iranian vessels that harass the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be “shot out of the water.”
Reuters continues to state that Trump’s transition team was not available to comment on how Trump made threats to shoot Iranian ships out of the water. This is deliberately building up before Trump gets into office, this somewhat a flashback to when George W. Bush first got elected. It all started as fun and games, with stupid people saying stupid staff and finally the whole thing dragged the US into war with Iraq.
There are several top officials in the US government who seem to be heading in the wrong direction as they insight in a move aimed at dragging the U.S. into war. Such include Senator McCain who recently scheduled a hearing about foreign cyber threats that was solely focused on Russia. McCain called the Director of the National Intelligence James Clapper and NSA Mike Rogers to testify.
