  1. I guess this method could be interestingly used, but this video isn’t an example of that. If anything, the 3D method will be used mostly to illustrate the glorious American ‘defensive’ Navy’s awesome destructive bullying.

    • The presentation has a degree of nominally impressive technology but is short on any sort of critical substance. It’s an example of spoon-feeding that must, pretty much by definition, reflect the audience it is purporting to inform.

    • For the uninitiated, this is a reference to how the USN Vincennes shot down an Iranian airliner in 1988.

      Buried below the main story is a fitting epilogue for American Exceptionalism, with details of how the Captain and crew not only were excused but rewarded for killing 290 civilians in what was one of the deadliest disasters in aviation history.

  2. Love the casual talk of missiles and warplanes, strikes ‘on demand’. Just like a conversation between Vito Corrleone and his hitmen–we have the guns, we can do as we please. Psychopathic murdering scum, all of them running the US.

  3. Our local TV weather reports have better “virtual reality” and my high school newspaper had better reporting.

    CNN’s Tom Foreman: “. . . Look at the size of the forces we’re talking about here. U.S. forces, about twelve U.S. naval ships and the Iranians, somewhere between seven and nine of their own Iranian vessels coming in here. And yet, even though this looks like a big standoff, Chris, you’re saying that nobody here intends to shoot anything?”

    According to Navy Times, U.S. forces are a carrier strike group including the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt, guided missile cruiser Normandy, amphibious assault ship Iwo Jima, amphibious transport dock New York, dock landing ship Fort McHenry, mine countermeasures ships Dextrous and Sentry, destroyers Forrest Sherman and Winston Churchill, and the Theodore Roosevelt’s nine embarked squadrons of aircraft (65–70 planes).

    A carrier strike group is the largest operational unit of the United States Navy and comprises a principal element of U.S. power projection capability.

    According to Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren, the Iranian vessels are nine cargo ships.

    Since cargo ships are unarmed, it is safe to say that no one on the Iranian cargo ships intends to shoot anything.

  4. There are a couple of things in this analysis of which I have my reservations. Firstly I am not so sure if the U.S won’t engage the Iranian navy. The U.S has been saying for some time now that “All options are on the table”, so this could be a God sent opportunity to engage the Iranian vessels under the pretext of implementing the U.N’s recently passed resolution. After all, on the eve of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, the U.S official response was that this a matter between Iraq and Kuwait, and once the invasion of Kuwait was complete, the U.S quickly changed it’s stance, and the rest is history.
    Secondly, the experts mentioned a lot of “activity” in the south east of Yemen with Iranian small boats. This area is not under the control of the Houthis. The Houthis and the allied military are all to the northwest
    and mid west of Yemen. AQAP is quite active in the eastern parts of Yemen, especially in the Hadarmout region of Yemen, so I’m not sure how those small boats can safely hand over the weapons to the Houthis from the southeastern coast of Yemen.
