How the weakness and pusillanimity of American leadership, and all its impotent schoolmarmish tut-tutting, must amuse the Iranians. “Hitler reoccupies Rhineland — French say it’s ‘abnormal and unprofessional.'” Cowardice in the face of an aggressive bully only emboldens the bully and encourages him to do more bullying. That is where we are with Iran today: once again, it is showing the U.S. who’s boss, and seeing how far it can push the Obama Administration. How far can it push the Obama Administration? Right off the cliff.
“Iranian Drone Flew over US Carrier -US Navy,” by Eric Haun, Marine Link, January 29, 2016:
An unarmed Iranian drone flew directly over a U.S. aircraft carrier operating in international waters in the Gulf this month in a move that was “abnormal and unprofessional,” the U.S. military said on Friday.
“The UAV was unarmed and posed no risk to the carrier’s flight operations,” said Navy spokeswoman Lieutenant Commander Nicole Schwegman in an e-mailed statement. “While the Iranian UAV’s actions posed no danger to the ship, it was, however, abnormal and unprofessional.”
The incident happened on Jan. 12, and both the American and French carriers were operating in international waters in the Gulf at the time, Schwegman said.
