Iranians fired rockets close to the carrier Harry S. Truman
One rocket came within 1500 yards of the Truman. Don't they travel in groups? Isn't a specific ship in the group just made to protect the group from air threats? And yet they allowed a "rocket" to come within a mile of the group and did not engage? They even had to ask to engage and it was not just a reaction? Air threat, bang, bang, no more threat and let the politicians make the apologies if they have to.
Here I cant get within a 1000 yards of a cruise ship coming out of Baltimore with my 40 year old classic 19 foot long boat without 3 alphabet agencies up my ass and they can shoot a rocket in the area of a multi billion dollar carrier group and we are like no big deal.
Starting to feel the same way it did with Carter at the end. We were great at one time (the greatest generation) and then it declined until the end of the 70's where everything looked and felt ... brown. I just hope the 80's are on the way.
