    What I wonder is how this relates to general firearms discussion.

    Sigh....

    Why does this smell of propaganda to justify another war?

    How is this agit-prop gun related?

    Personally, I would like THR to be free from the demented agitations of the cheerleaders of the Forever War.

    Yes we mustn't allow a speedboat gap! Quick send some really cool speedboats to the Persian gulf.

    Maybe I Should Have Posted This In Strategy and Tactics

    This discussion was not in the scope of The High Road Forum.

    My being a Ronald Reagan fan aside...

    This has nothing to do with our Strategy and Tactics forum either. This is a foreign policy issue and out of scope.

    This is gun related.

    USN vessels typically carry large caliber guns and other weapons that ought to be able to shred a typical speed boat with little trouble. If the speedboats are anything more than a nuisance, I suspect that is exactly what would happen.

    My guess is the Iranians are trying to stir things up, and the US military is reacting with its characteristic restraint.
