U.S. Almost fires on Iranian Navy

Imagine my surprise when awakening I discovered we lost the chance to take out the Iranian navy. Sky News is reporting on their morning breaking news that US Comes Close To Firing On Iran Ships.

According to Sky News: American forces were on the verge of firing on the vessels after being harassed and provoked, according to Pentagon officials, but the Iranian boats suddenly veered away and ended the incident.

"It is the most serious provocation of this sort that we've seen yet," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the record.

The incident happened as the US Navy cruiser, destroyer and frigate were crossing the strait on their way into the Persian Gulf.

Let me be perfectly honest here, no one, not even me wants more war in the already war savaged Middle East, however, a chance to shove all of the bovine excrement that Iran has been spouting right down their throats, well, that is not war, that is pure poetic street justice. We must always remember too, the good thing about individuals who act their life like a total ass; they will do it again and again.

Hey pardner!

GREAT to have you back!!

Now that you've gotten that nastiness out of the way we should be able to rock and roll through '08.

Looking forward to see you posting again soon.

{If I'm not mistaken it was about 30 years ago that I said, we did it to Japan and we can do it to Iran!}

For all my dear friends that love The Ranter, I am so sorry to let you know that he is now in Hospice and was admitted under "imminent death". Needless to say, I am heartbroken to lose my closest friend.

If anyone reads this, please feel free to email me at

Love to you all.

I am so sorry to hear this. Had suspected it for a while. I am heartbroken tht such an elegant mind is not able to communicate with us. I am sure he is surrounded with loving family and friends. His loss will diminish us in ways I cannot explain.

Ranter and Wild Bill supported me thru my son's first deployment to war in Iraq. That support was a lifeline to me in time of need.

Wherever you are Ranter I want you to know I love you and will carry you and your great heart and love of country with me forever.

Until me meet again good friend....

love, Mamabear 333
