    Iran pacified?

    Remember that propaganda piece from a few weeks back how Iran was cowering in fear since Trump came into office...no ship threats...all that stuff? Remember???

    Iran test-fired anti-ship missile during drills last week: U.S. source

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Iran test-fired a short-range anti-ship missile in the Strait of Hormuz during naval drills last week that Washington believes were aimed at sending a message as the United States reimposes sanctions on Tehran, a U.S. official said on Friday.

    The official, however, did not suggest that such a missile test was unusual during naval exercises or that it was carried out unsafely, noting it occurred in what could be described as Iranian territorial waters in the Strait.

    Iran’s Revolutionary Guards confirmed on Sunday it had held war games in the Gulf over the past several days, saying they were aimed at “confronting possible threats” by enemies.

    U.S. Army General Joseph Votel, head of the U.S. military’s Central Command, said earlier this week the scope and scale of the exercises were similar to ones Iran had carried out in the past. But the timing of this particular set of exercises was designed to get Washington’s attention.

    Yeah...so much for that idea. No one is afraid of Trump...except incumbent cowering Republicans.

    If they aren't afraid of Trump they are really stupid.

    I believe it is safe to assume that if Iran dared fire a missile into a Untied States ship the response would be catastrophic.

    For Iran.
