Iran’s Revolutionary Guards send warning to US, increasing patrols in Gulf

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards navy said Iran will give a decisive response to any mistake by the U.S. in the Persian Gulf, in a statement published on the Guards’ news site on Sunday. The U.S. military said on Wednesday that 11 vessels from the Revolutionary Guards navy had come dangerously close to U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships, calling the moves ’dangerous and provocative’.

Iran is trying to keep up appearances and distract from their failings with the Coronavirus by making idle threats against the USA.

The US govt needs to just say, get to close or threaten our vessels and we sink you regardless of your origin. Video tape them coming close, show the verbal warning, then sink them live on tv. Then send a message to the specific country stating, here's the video, here's the warning, here's the response. Don't p**syfoot around it. Iran will only take our friendly responses as weakness..which allows them to use it as propaganda locally to get support and flex muscles. Peaceful response to physical aggression for decades has only elevated thier ability to get away with whatever they want. It's like a child testing the parents and seeing what they can get away with. It's about time for a light spanking and sitting in the corner.

So the speed boats armed with explosives will swarm US vessels. This is the most dangerous thing then can do but would be costly if they tried as they get one go before we hammer them. Most likely this is for internal politics as it would end the mullah controlled government if they tried.

In the event of war, we need to ensure that we destroy Iran’s air and navy capabilities.

The US should lift sanctions on Iran. Now is not the time for one-sides economic warfare. That means letting many people starve during a time when most cannot work. What everyone doesn’t seem to think about is if Iran was as close to the US shoreline as the US feels the need to be to Iran, that would be considered a sign of war. This is not the time to try and show the world you want to force freedom onto a nation when your own democracy is laughable and your human rights violations are comparable. Not to mention, the US coronavirus response is just as non-existent as the Iranian response.

But... The newest American relief package the house is currently trying to pass for Americans ($2000 a month x 6 months) is also supposed to give Iran 5 billion dollars... Why would they threaten us if the house is trying to give them American dollars?

I can understand the danger of attack on unarmored surface vessels by even low tech attacks, however the threats from Iran almost seem insane. It has to be for domestic consumption, if they were going to attack they wouldn't broadcast it in advance
