Something never rang true about the apprehension and boarding of two American Naval vessels by the Iranian Navy. Something just didn’t seem right.
As Written By Charlie Daniels, CSN News:
These boats were equipped with the kind of space age navigational devices that should have forgone any doubt where they were within a couple of yards.
If one boat became disabled, why didn’t the other boat tow it back to safe international waters?
Barring all else, why didn’t the Iranians abide by centuries old maritime tradition to assist a disabled vessel of a nation you’re not at war with? We’re not at war with Iran, or are we?
Why did John Kerry make a public statement praising and thanking the Iranians for their humane treatment of our Naval personnel knowing that Iran had boarded our vessel, disarmed the sailors and forced them to kneel with their hands on their heads? Why would he do so after seeing that Iran had photographed these sailors, using the photo as an embarrassing international public relations ploy and showing the world just how spineless the Obama administration is? Just how much humiliation and insult he is willing to take?
Then, during a parade, the Iranians staged a float with Iranians dressed like American sailors on a boat standing in total submission while being laughed at and ridiculed by the people on the street.
This is tantamount to rubbing America’s face in a manure pile. It was an attempt to suggest that America is supposedly weak, spineless and totally unable when it comes to protecting itself. It was meant to suggest that America has become a cowering, impotent nation whose president can be pushed around, humiliated, threatened and ridiculed without any threat of retaliation.
