The discussion about the US Navy destroyer turning tail and fleeing from the Iranian Navy stirred more than a little bit of anger in me.
I don't recognize this US military. As little as 20 years ago, if a Destroyer Skipper had considered doing that then he would have been relieved by his XO by order of the Fleet Commander.
Having said that, many disagree with my view. Debate the issue and not the religion (yeah it will be hard with a nation that identifies itself by its religion but try).
Is Iran a potential friend or inevitable foe? Stay on topic. Back up your assertions and leave out the conspiracy thinking unless you have actual information to back up your claims.
