Iranian navy provocation brings out the crazies.

As you may or may not know, last week the Iranian navy sent fast attack boats out to confront a US Navy destroyer group. I have no doubt that the Iranians knew they would not be able to successfully attack the destroyer group and that their harassment was intended to provoke a response by the destroyers.

One thing that you can always count when something like happens is the kooks will come out in droves calling shenanigans. Just ask, the sinking of the Lusitania? Faked/the US did it. Pearl Harbor? FDR knew about it. USSR invasion of Afghanistan? the USSR was "lured" in by the CIA. 9/11? Bush did it.

What is the common theme here? The US is the bad guy. The US is to blame. No other nation, ever, ever, ever does anything against the US. The US is just so hell bent on war that we fake provocation to acheive that goal.


The kook spin on this will be that the Iranians would not dare attacking the US Navy as they know they would be destroyed. This will come from the same people that say we cannot win a war in Iraq or Afghanistan and have stated that the US military cannot fight terrorism.
