Attack on US ships

Original post made by Walter_E_Wallis, Midtown, on Jan 8, 2008

One of the ships in the convoy attacked by Irani swift boats was the USS Hopper, named for Admiral Grace Hopper, stepmother of COBAL.

THE UNITED STATES HELD IT'S FIRE. THAT IS MORE THAN I WOULD DO.

After the USS COLE these provocational Iranian idiots are not going to get a second chance. It was with extreme prejudice that fire was held this was exercised with precision military discipline and no media fool has given credit to the professionalism and courage of our Military under dangerous circumstances.

Here is what went down, in daylight hours, there were 5 high speed and highly maneuverable boats twice the size and more than triple the performance of the boat that attacked the USS COLE used by the suicide fanatics to kill our brave Navy personnel. These ocean terrorists then came within 100 meters in these boats that by the way were not flying any nations flag nor were the boats painted or numbered in a color of any known Navy or Coast Guard.

I hope these idiots try this again and then they will discover that the US NAVY is the travel agent of choice for those special trips to see the 72 virgins.

Take note: to all you would be pirates - it is always permissible to sink pirates on the open ocean.

100 meters is 5 seconds. Too damn close.

The audio in the video tape is not from the video recording. There isn't any evidence the voices in the audio are from the Iranians as Ch. 16 is used as a CB channel in the Gulf. The evidence isn't clearcut.
