US Navy ship fires warning shots at Iranian ship in Persian Gulf

U.S. Defence officials have confirmed that Navy ships did fire warning shots at an Iranian ship in the Persian gulf.

The previous administration would have demanded the crew to empathize with the Iranians – warning shots are better. Way to go Trump administration! America is nothing to mess with now that there’s a new sheriff in town.

From Fox News:

The U.S. Navy coastal patrol ship fired warning shots from its .50-caliber machine gun at an Iranian patrol boat when it came within 150 yards of the ship in the Persian Gulf, according to two U.S. defense officials.

The Iranian ship ignored repeated radio calls from the USS Thunderbolt, which also launched flares to warn the fast approaching Iranian ship, officials said.

The incident happened Tuesday as a formation of U.S. Navy warships was doing an exercise in the Northern Persian Gulf.

It’s the first time since January a U.S. Navy warship has fired warning shots at an Iranian vessel which approached too close.

The days of Obama are over, Iran better chill out! President Trump doesn’t play that!  Screw with Mad Dog and Trump and you will regret it! 
We have a new commander in Chief, Iran won’t be capturing any US Navy boats and humbling the sailors like they did when Obama was in charge, plus he had to pay a ransom to get them back. We were the laughing stock of the military world back then but not any more.
