U.S. Navy ship fires warning shots after close encounter with Iranian vessels

If there's one regret I have about the Trump administration was that we did not inflict retribution against Iran for humiliating our Navy during the Obama regime.   

AOL News reports a U.S. military ship fired warning shots after three vessels from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) came close to it and another American patrol boat in the Gulf, the United States military said on Tuesday. 

Such incidents have occurred occasionally over the past five years, though there has been a relative lull over the past year. 

While officials said it was too early to discern the exact motivation of the Iranian forces, they have said that generally in the past such incidents are carried out by local commanders rather than directed by senior Iranian leaders.
