In the latest escalation of tensions between Washington and Tehran, five Iranian military vessels maneuvered extremely close to a US warship carrying a top American general just six months after two US ships were detained by Iran.

The ships, which were dispatched to the Strait of Hormuz by Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on Monday, came within 500 yards (457 meters) of the USS New Orleans and its escort, the USS Stout, a guided missile destroyer, according to Reuters.

  1. Warn them and if they don’t back off, fire across their bows, If the still do not back down, blow them out of the water. They are probably carrying ELINT and COMMINT. They violating the rules of navigation and are provoking a response so give them one!
