Incident in the Strait of Hormuz; Update: "I am coming at you. You will explode in a couple of minutes."

It’s all Bush’s fault, of course–via Reuters:

Five Iranian Revolutionary Guard boats harassed and provoked three U.S. Navy ships in the Strait of Hormuz on Saturday, CNN reported.

The CNN report on Monday, citing unidentified U.S. officials, said the Iranian vessels came within 200 yards (meters) of the U.S. ships and that after a threatening radio communication, U.S. sailors manned their ships’ guns and were very close to opening fire.

More info:

U.S. military officials told CNN the boats were “attack craft” that they believed were operated by Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard. The Iranian boats made threatening maneuvers against the U.S. warships and threatening radio transmissions, the officials told CNN. The captain of one U.S. vessel was in the process of giving the order to shoot when the Iranian ships began turning away, CNN said. A radio transmission from one of the Iranian ships said, “I am coming at you. You will explode in a couple of minutes,” CNN reported, citing a U.S. official.


Allah asks: “Which nutroots blog will be the first to scream ‘Gulf of Tonkin!’?”

Answer: Democratic Underground, always reliable…


Rosie O’Donnell would have screamed it first, but I guess she’s not awake yet.
