Default Iran gets a pass?

The news is reporting that Iranian boats have threatened U.S. warships in International waters off the Straight of Hormuz. It appears the Iranians were dropping things in the water (white boxes) and made a radio transmission to a U.S. vessel that it was going to explode? It seems very strange that the Iranians survived. The CG in our domestic waters warns folks getting to close to cruise ships, etc., and meanwhile our U.S. Navy is threatened and not a single shot is fired. What gives? Me thinks it's time to turn that place into glass.

My guess is that the Iranians will continue to test us until the Navy responds.

The report that I just heard is that the skipper of a destroyer gave the ordser to fire just as the Irains turned away.

Exactly.

That's gonna happen anyway. Time to show Immadinnerjacket what the inside of a B-2 bomb bay looks like when it's disgorging its payload ...
