What an Iranian drone just did to this US warship will blow you away…because America did nothing back
It’s Friday night in Amarillo, Texas, and I’m in the old Fisk Building downtown — now the Courtyard Marriott hotel. I just finished speaking at the Amarillo Women’s Republican Club Lincoln-Reagan dinner. It was a great event and I just gotta tell ya, I had the absolutely best doggone prime rib I’ve ever had in my life. The meal was courtesy of the Coors Cowboy Club.
I’m looking at a weekend where I can take a motorcycle ride from Dallas up to Oklahoma City, hit Route 66, come back to Amarillo, and then back to Dallas. This area is represented by my former Congressional colleague, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Rep. Mac Thornberry, an astute man of high integrity. Now, no one is perfect, but Chairman Thornberry is the right man to advance policies to strengthen our military.
And based on what just happened in the Persian Gulf, we need that.
As reported by Fox6Now:
The U.S. Navy is acknowledging an unarmed Iranian drone recently flew over an American aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf.
The Navy termed the incident “abnormal and unprofessional” in a statement released by U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet spokesman Cmdr. Kevin Stephens.
The statement said that on the morning of January 12, an Iranian drone flew toward both the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle and the USS Harry S. Truman, both of which were operation in international waters in the gulf.
A Navy helicopter launched from the Truman then determined that the unmanned aerial vehicle wasn’t weaponized.
“Because the UAV was unarmed and posed no risk to the carrier’s flight operations (since it wasn’t flying at the time), we determined that … the Iranian UAV’s actions posed no danger to the ship,” Stephens said in his statement. “It was however, abnormal and unprofessional.”
Iran has broadcast video on local television that has been billed as capturing the incident.
I know we’re busy in America being led by the media to focus on the shining thing, talking about the GOP debate or Hillary Clinton’s emails. The latter is simple: said person is a chronic liar and should be heading to jail, after being indicted.
But just think about what’s happened in the Persian Gulf: the world’s #1 state sponsor of Islamic terrorism was flying a drone over our naval vessels. We’ve had Iran seize our Riverine assault boats and capture our Sailors at gunpoint, making them kneel. And Iran has also fired off ship-launched cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf this month; hmm, I suppose that’s all just hunky dory now.
