    Default Navy and Iran

    What just happened over there?
    Most of us are boaters. I know they were in a big body of water but ...
    50 miles of course?
    Triple redundant navigation including a Ritchie 500 compass (looked like it from the Iranian video they broadcast) that are same in my race boat that was used to race hundreds of miles out to sea and back almost 50 years ago.
    The first boat had a nav issue so the second didn't radio ahead and say hey we just crossed the natural zone?
    Then it was a mechanical issue? So they drifted 50 miles off course and yet the boat that was running didn't throw a line and tow them out of danger?
    Then the Iranians come out in Jon boats with 3hp outboards and they just throw up their hands and surrender? How fast are these navy boats again? 50 knots?

    I'm starting to think this is a set up. Either the Iranians came out and took those boats basically trying to run us out of the middle east and the admin is covering it up or we sent them in there on a spy mission and they got caught (very stupid this day and age) or (and what I think it was) they sent them in there with a plan that the Iranians would catch them and give them back with no issue to say that the Iran nuke deal has made new friends out of our enemies.
    In summary this is either a scam or the Capt of the lead boat should be brought up on charges and should never be allowed to pilot a paddle boat on a acre lake again.

    It will be as easy to get the actual truth about this story as it is to get Killary to show her deleted e-mails. There's something very fishy about this entire administration and I believe they are opening the door for a massive defeat for democrats across America and ushering in a new era of transparency, like the Kenyan promised in the first place - but never delivered.

    Yeah, something is wrong with the story. If one boat fails, the other tows it to the safe zone. GPS failed on both boats, not likely. Where was the mother ship? What was the rules of engagement the captain was following? Was the commander of the mother ship told to stand down? Just does not make any sense to me. I hope the Navy gets the real truth out.

    Now they are saying that they were taking a shortcut to get to a fueling station. On open water, a short cut?? Then being in Iranian waters one boat had a “slight motor issue” and all were below deck checking into it, in Iranian waters, everyone was below deck checking on a “slight issue” and the Iranians just snuck up on them. O.Kayyyyyyy……
    Stupid question, where was the second boat? Did they raft up together in Iranian waters and all go below deck? Sure this wasn’t a high seas poker game gone badly. It’s like a plot line for Bill Murray in the movie Stripes or McHale’s Navy.

    Reading from some people that were in the Navy and Marines, they are talking about a possible set up?

    What is the gov (Obama) trying to cover up now???

    Do you suppose this event was just some sort of a prelude to today's prisoner swap of 7 Iranians for 4 Americans? For some reason the Obama admin is being very quite about this ....

    Why is it that Iran ALWAYS gets the upper hand and advantage in these deals Perhaps this is why these "crappy" deals are usually announced over the weekend....and a 3 day weekend at that
    Either way, in the end it appears Iran will get their $100B+ and the U.S. and our allies get the opportunity to be nuked

    I feel for the people held over there but at the same time not so much. Kind of the same way I feel about the people "held" in Cuba. Why were they there in the first place? They had their own objectives and now the country is supposed to sacrifice to get them back? Now its 7 for 4 and we also canceled a number of "red notices" or basically arrest warrants on Iranians and there is at least 3 more Americans still over there.
    Be ready for the media to fawn for days and days of praise of our great leader.

    Its no surprise.

    Remember, this is the same jackwagon that traded 5 terrorist masterminds and a bale of money for one army deserter who is facing court martial and directly caused American soldiers to be killed trying to find his sorry traitorous ass.

    THEN had a photo op of the bastards parents in the rose garden.

    Default I heard.....

    I heard that Lurch actually ASK the Iranians to RESCUE our Sailors in distress? Then the Iranian kick ass "Guard" was sent out to see what they could do to help.... Then, the "rescue" went sideways....
