BREAKING NEWS: The US Department of Defense just reported that an Iranian “fast attack craft” came dangerously close the USS Mahan, a guided missile destroyer in the Persian Gulf on Monday. Official reports say the American ship manned its weapons, fired flares, sounded alarms and changed course in order to avoid it’s Iranian counterpart. U.S. officials claim the Iranian warship came within 1,000 yards of the USS Mahan with its own weapons manned. In January, the USS Mahan fired warning shots at another Iranian warship near the Strait of Hormuz.
