I have not contributed much to this site lately but this one has kind of brought me out of my shell. I like most saw the report on this incident in the last few days and as a guy that retired from the Navy in 2002 from a command that had a similar mission to the ones that surrendered to the Iranians without firing one shot and am made ill by the conduct of one of the sailors and would participate in hanging him myself if asked. Am sickened by that honorless stinking skunk maggot, John Kerry who was as much of a sniveling coward as you ever want to see on active duty characterizing this as a improvement between us and Iran. I could not believe my eyes seeing our guys on their knees with their hands behind their heads and the Iranians taking weapon after unfired weapon with tons of ammunition as these............whatever did nothing. What has happened to our Navy, what has happened to our government, what has happened to honor, courage and commitment. What happened to the code of conduct? As I said, I retired in 2002, but I am still ashamed to say I am a US Navy vet. It's a sad day.
Jo Gonzalez, did you ever hear of the spy ship U.S.S. Pueblo that was captured by the North Koreans? The U.S.S. Enterprise never came to their rescue and it was suppose to be the closest ship to them. By the way when the U.S.S. Pueblo was captured, LBJ a liberal president was in office. What can we expect from a empty headed liberal
Yes, am familiar. LBJ was another one who was a disgrace. Now, we have the North Koreans with Bombs, great situation.
I have never served in any of the Armed Forces, however, most of the men in my family have, so to all of you that have served our country, THANK YOU and GOD BLESS YOU! I will conduct myself as a lady, Kerry is a wuss, always has been and always will be. He knows nothing whatsoever about being a 'Secretary of State' and is running us into the ground along with gutterbutt[O]. He is no better than Killary was and we saw what she accomplished, absolutely nothing to further the USA as the Shining City on the Hill. I will be so glad when Kerry and gutterbutt are gone and all 3 of them thrown into prison!!!! To apologize to Iran is such an embarrassment to the whole USA!!!!
FWIW... I heard the Iranians intercepted the GPS transmission and spoofed the return showing the boats were in unrestricted water... When they were not. I also heard the Iranians boosted the GPS nav equipment from both boats... Which would have logged the trip data.
Bet it wouldn't have gone down like it did with Trump as CIC...
Notice the female was 'burka'd as well.
...sickening all around I'd say.
Maybe it was a staged event by the idiot in the White House as another example of Americas weakness.
John Kerry, showing he is as much a coward now,as he was in Viet Nam.
Amen, Eric. Kerry was a jackass in Nam, and has managed to up hold his reputation..FUBAR
Well, look what King Obama and John Kerry did, APOLOGIZING to the Iranians, what the heck do you expect?
This was a completely humiliation of America and all that we stand for. We have ALL been brought down to our knees in my opinion. I was shocked and horrified to see this.
TSgt Jack Wall and I were arrested like that by Turkish soldiers for doing our duty but we were released in a couple hours so I don't have any problem with the sailors but the US Navy Brass screwed up big time again (ref Pearl Harbor, USS Indianapolis, USS Forrestal, Benghazi, USS Pueblo, USS Donald Cook, USS liberty, etc). Did the engine fail and if so then why wasn't there a backup outboard engine or it towed? What was stolen?
Their jamming systen is called Khibiny and if we don't have something better, we have to go all out attack WWlll mode or we are sitting ducks.
Yes Sir. And we need to play nice until there is a fix.
