Change your headline. The Navy Ship isn't on fire. The Navy ship fired on a boat and the boat is on fire.

Why do you leave out the relevant stuff?

oil supply ship U.S.N.S. Rappahannock fired a .50 caliber machine gun at a "small motor vessel after it disregarded warnings and rapidly approached the U.S. ship"






What the frick would you rather have ... a repeat of USS Cole ?

Yea, misread title...caught it, you guys are quick.

But, what do we make of this? I think the Iran will be rattling.

ABC needs to change their title also. They didn't fire on a ship, it was a "small motor vessel".

It will be interesting to see what really happened?

I imagine it was some attempt by a terrorist? US Navy should blow anything that attempts to approach them after warning.

FYI ... dealing with small dhows in the Arabian Gulf has been an issue for decades now.


The little bastards see you coming ... then, they'll get underway and come straight for you.


I'm sure that vessel was given every opportunity to cease and desist.

F'em.

That or an initial test to see how far they could go before getting blasted.

A suicide mission to cast the firing on the vessel in a bad light so the next legit terrorist boat can increase its chance of success.

I doubt a rapidly approaching motor vessel was a dhow, but I'm not in the navy?

Of course not ... but, the dhows greatly outnumber the pleasure crafts ... and, they basically use the same tactic.


Also ... people should understand the difference between a USNS Ship and a USS Ship.


That USNS ship is captained by a civilian with a majority civilian crew. It is not a warship by any means.
