Trump authorizes Navy to destroy Iranian gunboats if they harass US ships at sea

President Trump has ordered the US Navy to ’shoot down and destroy’ Iranian gunboats, if they harass US vessels. Recently US Navy had accused Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps of provocation as nearly a dozen Iranian vessels buzzed a group of US ships in the Persian Gulf recently. Iranian govt considers US activity in gulf highly provocative and has condemned it as adventurism.

I would think there would be measures such as disabling the ships or firing warning shots before shooting them down. Not sure what it means to "shoot down" a ship but he also said "destroy" which seems clearly beyond what is necessary.
