Did the ciws not take it out?

Did the rocket impact nearby, or was it just "passing through"?

I could see this kind of shit eventually leading to a Gulf of Tonkin 2.0, but it maybe just my tinfoil wrapped to tight.

I'm sure that was a coincidence. I wonder if Obongo will apologize for having the Truman so close to their rocket test.

Couple hundred yards is a lot different than 1500 yards.
Still unacceptable. No question it was intentional. Should have shot the missile down and then sunk the gunboat.

Did they launch the alert five aircraft?

The article that I read says it wasn't pointed at them.  It was just done near them.  And they announced that they were doing it.

Yea, all I got is a big Meh.

Read the article. They were being ass hats, but firing AWAY FROM the Truman.

Unguided missiles .... which are just rockets. It was posturing for them. We probably okayed it as fodder to justify budgets.
Link Posted: 12/30/2015 12:12:05 AM EDT
Meh. Sounds like speedboats with small rockets.  Enough to kill someone but not enough to sink a carrier.

Just taunting us.
Link Posted: 12/30/2015 12:12:35 AM EDT
We should send an impomptu Tomahawk within 1500 yards "flyby" of Tehran.

If we had a CIC with balls.  
Link Posted: 12/30/2015 12:14:17 AM EDT
John Kerry and James Taylor will fly to Iran tomorrow and sing a few songs, apologize on behalf of the boy King Baracka Husseini Obama and then suck the mullahs and ayatollahs cocks. Then the democrats in the media and senate will proclaim this administration as brilliant for its "smart diplomacy" and they will recall the dark days of "cowboy diplomacy" of the dumb Bush administration.

It was a fireworks celebration for their new submarine. The rockets were nothing but model rockets, to celebrate the new  top secret paint job and her maiden voyage.

With the total pussy Obama in charge they could sink one of our ships and he would apologize for our military driving the ship into their rocket.

They have a ton of speedboats with Chinese Type 63 MLRS bolted to them. That sounds like a janky way to engage in warfare vs an aircraft carrier but those 107mm rockets have a range of about 8000 meters and the Iranians would use them along with shore based AShMs,tube and rocket artillery,mines and even submarines. They even have some weirdo ground effect craft as part of the swarm.

Those little boats are very hard to find. A Nork boat of the same design slipped in,sank a ROKN corvette and ran away without being detected and quite honestly nobody knows how often they manage agent insertions.

$150 billion, not too shabby.  The US can recall the money, somehow, but we have to wait 1 year when Obunghole leaves

Meh.  Kerry probably told then it was OK to do that.

Which is it? Couple hundred or 1500 yards?

That is like .85 miles. Not exactly a close call...

The fact the missile was detected means it wasn't much of a missile

Probably a "cup check" for R2D2's dick.






It would be so easy to blast anything in the straight it's not even funny.

They're basically throwing a big "fuck you" to the US.  There probably wasn't any danger to anyone, it's just a political statement.

When you consider the size of a carrier it is very close. Only 1.5 carriers away.

1500 yds = 0.75 nm.  We use nautical miles (2000 yds)  at sea.
