NATO ships passed the Strait of Hormuz at the time of the Iranian navy's rocket firing

25
On the eve it became known that the Iranian military conducted missile firing in the Strait of Hormuz. TV channel NBC reported that the shooting was started at the moment when the American aircraft carrier Harry Truman passed through the strait. According to the US military, Iranian missile boats were fired at a distance of approximately 1,4 km from the aircraft carrier.


NATO ships passed the Strait of Hormuz at the time of the Iranian navy's rocket firing


It is reported that with the aircraft carrier "Harry Truman" in the Persian Gulf included the American destroyer "Buckley" and the French frigate. Washington adds that American ships followed the Persian Gulf to "join the fight against ISIS," and followed "only in an internationally recognized corridor."

Representatives of the Iranian naval forces contacted the crews of NATO ships and warned that the ships were passing the Strait of Hormuz at the time of the Iranian Navy exercises. Command ships of the United States and France were warned about the inadmissibility of deviations from the international shipping corridor.

The United States has already stated that they regard such actions of Iran as "unreasonably provocative and unsafe." If we consider that the northern part of the Strait of Hormuz is the territorial waters of Iran, and the American ships followed from the sea border line at a distance of several hundred meters, the question arises whether, in this case, the NATO side’s provocative actions with ISIS is trying to solve completely different tasks in the region ...

    In my opinion, the NATO ships simply organized a provocation against Iran, at the time of the Iranian Navy exercises.

      Some kind of muddy presentation. Everyone will be judged by whether there was an early warning about the exercises: if there were provocateurs in NATE, but if not, then there is already other material for discussion.

        If you look at the configuration of the strait, then there is in the narrowest place 100 km. By 20 on each side are territorial waters. Total to international waters 60km. Why at the same time sail hundreds of meters from territorial waters is a question. Moreover, the optimal trajectory in this place passes just from the other side (a strait of curved shape). But on the other hand, why did Iran have to conduct firing in the strait? Why not in the Persian Gulf or the Arabian Sea? Although in their waters they have every right. So there is clearly a greater provocation of the Americans than the Iranians.
        Threat. By the way, if there was no warning in advance, then the option is not ruled out that the Iranians, seeing the Americans approaching, decided to scare them and announced exercises. Well, do not lean on an aircraft carrier like ours in the Black Sea.

              what are they "well done"? Well, missiles were fired in the direction opposite the AUG. Well, they showed the middle finger to the Americans from their terr.vod. Well, maybe some sailor threw a prayer rug in Truman. AUG didn’t even slow down, calmly entered Puddle and goes about their business. What do you think the Persians demonstrated?

                Yes, because they scored a bolt on both NATO and the states.
                They received sanctions in response, but did not change their position.
                The fact that they call themselves the Islamic Republic.
                Thus they speak of their faith and culture.

                They do not lick the butt of the "civilized" world and do not declare themselves a secular state.

                It is with us now in Russia that everyone rushed to the church, but they are embarrassed to be Orthodox. What if the “civilized” people don’t accept it!

                And in this case, well done Persians that do as they see fit.
                As a result, they will be reckoned with.

                How many independent states remained in the world that did not bend under the "European values"?
                Iranians are one of the few nations that lives on the traditions and culture of their ancestors.


                AUG didn’t even slow down, calmly entered Puddle and goes about their business.

                In neutral waters, they can do anything. Reduce the course, add. Cut into checkers, if they can.

            Overlapping the strait is aggression from Iran, and if they enter the carrier who violated the border, it is a legitimate border guard. Do not confuse the ass with your finger. In the first case, they will stand up against everyone; in the second, they will at least receive political support from the Russian Federation and China. This is at least. As a maximum, they can quickly get some kind of "onyx" in addition to C-300. And the Yankees will revel in the mere thought that it is necessary to sail past Iran. Yankees are not as hard to scare as you think.

    Intelligence and provocation. This is the only way to describe the actions of the Americans. For anyone, they were well aware that the Iranians were conducting exercises there. I was most struck by the distance of 1,4 km between the ships! It was simply minimal! Well, the actions of the Americans did not surprise ... How always brazenly

              Iran is already mixed with the USA, right there in Syria. While in the cold. And I didn’t hear something that the Western coalition would manage to miss on IS and get into the IRGC. Everyone already missed (the Syrians, the Iraqis ...) but not the Iranians.
              The age of provocations has come ... and therefore no one is talking about war.

              Who could say seven years ago that the Turks would dare shoot down the Air Force of Russia? NONE.

                  It was possible to suppose an incident (namely an incident), but the cynicism and arrogance with which this was done does not fit into the head, turning the concept of "incident" into a "precedent".

                    Listening to you, you might think that there are a very large number of “Iranians” in Syria. In fact, I think this is far from the case. It was about a half or two thousand people, it seems that, you see, not so much. Given that the main occupation of the IRGC and the Iranian military was the training of Shiite police and others, it can be assumed that

                      3 and 4. The times when thousands fought (square on square) have sunk into oblivion with the invention of the machine gun. It’s a long-known fact (I don’t understand why it’s a secret for you) that divisions are not always needed to solve a large list of military tasks by trained specialists.
                      Regarding only the training of Shiite police officers and mysteriously appearing graves, these two statements are very strange, since in all the media, and in VO, in fact, all ears buzzed about the massive losses in the personnel of the IRGC. There are only about a dozen top officers.
                      It’s not clear what this can be said about, is it?
                      Not combat losses at the shooting ranges? Accidentally dropped grenades cover the chest? Or drunk, in the insole, under the tanks lying around on landfills?
                      Graves fresh? Of course it’s strange ...
                      Ahhh. I understood. This coalition smears on the IS and crumbles the IRGC at the training grounds during the training of Shiites.
                      You confused me :)
                      Rounding off. We are far from the topic, so I’ll return: in my opinion (I emphasize), Iran has long grown out of short pants - this time, the States are already the third year already, they are two, these are two, the world’s situation has changed dramatically - this is three and the incident with the American military property in the Strait of Hormuz, by analogy with the SU-24, is very likely - these are four. Your opinion is your opinion. I do not count on its correction.

    The command of the ships of the United States and France was warned about the inadmissibility of deviations from the international shipping corridor.

    For some reason, M. Zadornov immediately remembered. When the commander of an American aircraft carrier ordered the lighthouse to "get out of the way". Americans feel like masters everywhere, even the territorial waters of a foreign country.

      that is yes. But if in the Arabian Gulf there were no Americans as a gendarme, then the Persians would have blocked the strait, and this, for a minute, is a third of all the world's offshore oil traffic. The guys in the burnus would be very sad) The crisis with massacre would still have to be resolved by the Americans. And their methods are already known.

    That's right. The problem is not worth a damn egg at all. The task of information is to increase the degree. Purely from a political point of view - playing on each other's nerves. Now both sides will blame each other. The USA - that Iran conducted the exercises, Iran - that the Americans were provocateurs and specially carried out their ships at that time.
    Both that and other party in the right and no provocation from the USA are present. They walked along the international channel.
    There is no provocation from Iran either. The exercises were carried out in their own territorial waters, and firing was conducted not "towards the aircraft carrier", but "from the aircraft carrier, in the opposite direction." Although of course the Americans experienced a few unpleasant minutes

    Quote: Blondy
    Some kind of muddy presentation. Everyone will be judged by whether there was an early warning about the exercises: if there were provocateurs in NATE, but if not, then there is already other material for discussion.

    Alas, many do not want to do this - face the truth. If necessary, the Americans will roll out Iran. The question is only in time, losses and political expediency. Weight categories are too different for these countries.

    In my opinion, the NATO ships simply organized a provocation against Iran, at the time of the Iranian Navy exercises.


    Who would doubt that? At the same time, for some reason, the question of a note of protest or other actions is not even raised, if, taking into account the same conditions, these were Russian missiles - it would have stinked ....
