    Things are getting serious over there . . .

    Iran warship accidentally 'hit by missile' during exercises

    O.k., they accidentally sunk their own ship, but still . . .

    Clearly an orchestrated smokescreen by the White House to cover up their failures at stopping the fake virus that is designed to run Trump out and make us socialists. All of this while eliminating an Iranian warship from the seas!

    Trump and Pelosi will appear in a joint presser with masks over their ears claiming victory and the uniting of our parties finally!!

    Meanwhile CNN and Fox will ignore the story altogether to report on what competing anchors said on Twitter.

    Iran has really been screwing up lately, shooting down airliners and sinking their own ships.... they are somehow making the Trump admin look competent.

    Anyone have evidence that someone hacked the Iranian system to cause them to shoot one of their own? That would be a great spy novel ...

    Does Hillary Clinton have an alibi?

    Probably Iran's way of dealing with a COVID outbreak on board.

    I was talking to some of my navy buddies this morning on this. Pull up Bandar-e Jask on google maps. While I understand this vessel was probably repositioning targets for the missile test and, therefore, close to the action, they were very lucky not to hit an oil tanker. 20% of all the world's oil sails by that peninsula.

    They may have been trying to intimidate the west by posing a threat to oil shipping, or maybe arrange to "accidentally" hit a tanker. Strange time to do this, when oil usage is extremely low worldwide.

    She didn't have to be there personally. She instructed her assassin squad to do it.

    I'm guessing Israel has that capability. They are amazing.

    Ha! They are so intimidated by Trump, they are shooting down jetliners and their own ships!

    Four more years in office! Long live President Trump!
