Iran reports the detention of two US Navy ships (boats) in its territorial waters

53
TV channel Press TV spread the information that Iran has detained two ships (boats) of the US Navy near the Iranian island of Farsi (Persian Gulf). The report said that one of the American ships (boats) "lost speed" and went into the territorial waters of Iran, the second followed him. At that time, the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle was near the US warships (boats), which, as they say in Paris, is participating in an antiterrorist operation against the DAISH (IS). The aircraft carrier did not enter the territorial waters of Iran.


Iran reports the detention of two US Navy ships (boats) in its territorial waters


Information Agency Associated Press reports that both American ships stopped communicating at the moment when they were in the waters of the bay between Kuwait and Bahrain. White House spokesman Josh Ernest said that the Iranian side guaranteed security to the crew members of the US Navy, and also assured that both ships would soon be able to continue their journey after conducting an incident check.

This is one of the extremely rare cases in which communication, as they say in Washington, is lost with American warships, and which “unintentionally” enter foreign territorial waters, “off the course.” The “drift” of the two ships of the US Navy, strangely caught in the territorial waters of Iran, is more than a strange phenomenon, given the constant focus of the United States on provocations of a different nature.

      I think as casually as in the 88th year in the Black Sea.
      So to say, reconnaissance in battle.
      Not pierced, not scared Iranian sailors.

        Conversation of an American aircraft carrier with a Spanish lighthouse at Cape Finisterre (Galicia).
        Spaniards (clutter in the background):
        - ... Says A-853, please turn 15 degrees south to avoid a collision with us. You are moving right at us, a distance of 25 nautical miles.
        Americans (background noise):
        - We advise you to turn 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision with us.
        Spaniards:
        - The answer is negative. Repeat, turn 15 degrees south to avoid a collision.
        Americans (different voice):
        “The captain of the ship of the United States of America is speaking to you.” Turn 15 degrees north to avoid a collision.
        Spaniards:
        “We do not consider your proposal either possible or adequate; we advise you to turn 15 degrees south so as not to crash into us.”
        Americans (in elevated tones):
        - CAPTAIN RICHARD JAMES HOWARD SPEAKS TO YOU, USS LINCOLN AIRCRAFT COMMANDER OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SECOND BY THE MAJORITY OF THE Navy OF THE AMERICAN Navy. We are escorted by 2 cruisers, 6 destroyers, 4 submarines and numerous support ships. I DO NOT ADVISE YOU - I ORDER TO CHANGE YOUR COURSE BY 15 DEGREES IN THE NORTH. OTHERWISE, WE WILL BE FORCED TO TAKE THE NECESSARY MEASURES TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR SHIP. PLEASE IMMEDIATELY REMOVE OUR COURSE !!!
        Spaniards:
        “Juan Manuel Salas Alcantara is speaking to you.” There are two of us. We are accompanied by a dog, dinner, 2 bottles of beer and a canary, which is now sleeping. We are supported by the radio station and channel 106 “Extreme situations at sea”. We are not going to turn anywhere, given that we are on land and are the A-853 lighthouse on Cape Finisterre of the Galician coast of Spain. We have no idea what place we have in size among the Spanish lighthouses. You can accept everything ... !!! measures that you consider necessary, and do anything to ensure your safety ... !!! ship that will smash into smithereens on the rocks. Therefore, once again, we strongly recommend that you do the most meaningful thing: change your course 15 degrees south to avoid a collision.
        Americans:
        - OK, accepted, thanks. lol

      Moreover, their connection supposedly died. Cover for electronic warranties and flood. And then say that they did not see any boats at all. Well, what is the interference on the air - so this transformer on the island sparked a faulty one.

        "Slavutich" -The control ship was built as a large reconnaissance ship, launched in 1990, was completed for Ukraine. Taken by assault by Russian special forces and self-defense, the crew went ashore

        The mine ship was built in Leningrad in 1977. In 1997, became part of the Navy, received the name "Cherkasy". During the assault on Lake Donuzlav, control was destroyed, along with the flag of Ukraine, the Russian

        "Konstantin Olshansky" - a large landing ship was built in Poland in 1985, named after the lieutenant of the hero of the USSR. With the division of the fleet, he moved to Ukraine. On March 24, he was captured on Lake Donuzlav. A crew of 20 people destroyed the electronics and engine of the ship, it was towed to the pier

      So phishington counted on this. The usual provocation and intelligence gathering.
      -How fast will she be loaded? What forces will be attracted to counteract and will there be any actions at all? - etc.
      But ideally, the mattresses probably counted on the fact that Iran would sink a boat of the two and the second was as insurance in order to pull out the sailors, and then spin sanctions and other "troubles" against Iran, including the use of force. Broke off.

    Well, what are all bloodthirsty. Cut to feed sharks ... Another thing is surprising - not that the boat broke - everything breaks, and everyone has it. And the fact that the second boat did not come to the rescue, did not take it in tow, or something. A provocation is that hegemonic sailors consider any territorial waters of any state their own. Did you feel the coastal defense? In the plan - how are the territorial waters in a particular place covered by radars?

    SIRSA just because Iran will not be left alone, the mattresses are too bogged down in attempts to bend this country. Two boats are probing, so to speak, "supporting the tone" of Iranian border guards. Not a test of the reaction of the Iranian leadership, not without it. I don’t know what mattresses were counting on, but it was clearly not according to their scenario: everything was civilized, without aggressive rhetoric. They calmly accepted, calmly examined and just as calmly sent to their own. Hello to McCain.

    In light of recent discussions about the desire of the Saudis and their patrons to provoke Iran in order to again strangle it with sanctions, this incident can also be viewed from this side. And if the Iranians could not restrain themselves? A howl would have begun - the ship, the fiends, the enemies of the human race, attacked the wrecked ship, and here are sanctions for Iran for another ten years. Not a ride, but these guys still come up with something, they are very persistent when they need something.

And as already mentioned above, the sailors will be fed and put to sleep in general as best friends.

    The article says:At that time, near the American warships (boats) was the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle, which, as stated in Paris, was involved in the anti-terrorist operation against Daesh (IS). The aircraft carrier did not enter Iran’s territorial waters.
    As far as I remember, “Charles de Gaulle” was originally in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Syria. Yet Putin, as shown on television, instructed the commander of the RKR “Moscow” not to offend and interact with the French, they say our partners. When “Charlot” moved to the Persian Gulf? What am I missing or is there an error in the article about its location? request

      Yes, they did.
      after what you called followed by a shout from Washington (about the right coalition) and the "old rattletack" quietly without show-ups and media coverage was relocated to the Persian Gulf.

      All this was informationally blotted out by a showdown with Erdogan, etc.
      I don’t understand everything. I missed the development of the Ukrainian contract with Thailand, Putin’s interview with Bilda and the little things.
