This article, from Russia’s leading news agency RT, is a recommended must-read. RT reports that the US military was outraged when Iranian ships fired rockets in the Strait of Hormuz as the USS Harry S. Truman, an aircraft carrier, was reportedly passing 1,500 yards away. It cites the US Central Command calling the drill “provocative, unsafe, and unprofessional.”

No doubt, the US military think that Iran is laughing at Obama’s weak leadership?

Thoughts?

One response

  1. Dr Alf is right about Obama’s weak leadership and his stupidity.
    With Syria and Iraq getting crowded with foreign troops we have the risk of something going wrong.
    With poor co-ordination in the air, the risk gets bigger and with the coming together of warships from different countries plus military drills being initiated at very short notice, there is a danger of much wider warfare.
    The world needs to be very wary.
