First they fired a missile near a US warship.
*A U.S. aircraft carrier came within about 1,500 yards of an Iranian rocket while operating in the Strait of Hormuz, a Pentagon official told CNN.
While transiting the strait that sits at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, the USS Harry S. Truman had the encounter while the Iranian Revolutionary Guards were conducting a live-fire exercise in the area on Saturday, according to Cmdr. Kyle Raines, a U.S. Central Command spokesman.*
Now they overfly a US warship with a drone.
*A Navy helicopter launched from the Truman then determined that the unmanned aerial vehicle wasn’t weaponized.
“Because the UAV was unarmed and posed no risk to the carrier’s flight operations (since it wasn’t flying at the time), we determined that … the Iranian UAV’s actions posed no danger to the ship,” Stephens said in his statement. “It was however, abnormal and unprofessional.”*
In both cases the US warship was a nuclear carrier.
They really seem intent on pushing the limit of restraint here. Not exactly a wise thing on their part.
