Iran Attempts Propaganda Stunt By Attacking Fake US Warship;
They Accidentally Sink the Ship and Block Entry To Their Main Naval Port

So their ships can't get out of the harbor or get back in.

The "replica" aircraft carrier was intended to be "symbolically" sunk as part of a symbolic victory over the US.

But they really sunk it and now it's blocking their main naval harbor.

IRAN'S replica US aircraft carrier has sunk by itself and blocked one of its most important naval ports.

In an embarrassing blow to the Iranian regime, the mock-up has been sinking and risks causing a shipping hazard in the approach to the harbour of Bandar Abbas.

Last week Iran's paramilitary Revolutionary Guard simulated attacks on a replica US aircraft carrier with the aim of "symbolically sinking" it, so it can be reused.

...

In a propaganda coup, Iranian state television reported the exercise last Tuesday, which is aimed at threatening the US amid growing tensions with Washington.

...

But it seems Iran has ended up being its own worst enemy after its replica carrier sunk by its own accord -- and now risks bottling up the Iranian navy.

The ship sunk in shallow water -- 45 feet deep -- and its top sometimes peaks above the water.

Iran needs to salvage the ship just to unblock the harbor -- but they have almost no salvage capability.


By the way, the "replica aircraft supercarrier" was of course much, much smaller than the US ship it was supposed to represent.

19 Some of these countries the NeoCons swear up and down the US needs to invade and spend trillions on are mostly jokes that pose no threat to the actual US homeland.

I'm not saying Iran is not a bad actor, it is and deserves to be isolated and squeezed, but letting these countries just sort of collapse on their own is a much better strategy than our military getting involved.

If there is any doubt Joe won't debate this should put it to rest. He won't even go his own Convention.

Bloomberg:
Joe Biden will not travel to Milwaukee this month to accept the Democratic nomination for president at the party convention due to concerns about the coronavirus, according to two people familiar with the travel plans.

Biden had been expected to attend the convention in person and deliver his acceptance speech, but the campaign recently scrapped those plans.

The Biden campaign declined to comment on his travel.

The people familiar with the plans said the former vice president will deliver his acceptance speech from Wilmington, Delaware, where he lives.

140 'Morning, Horde. Quick report on a trip to Fort Smith yesterday.

Neighbor and I refused to kowtow to the Karens who have mandated masks in Tahlequah. We went to Sallisaw and Fort Smith. Sallisaw was interesting for the view of WalMart's parking lot. Though the town of Sallisaw is not mandating masks, WalMart is. Their parking lot looked like it does at 3:00 on Super Bowl Sunday...maybe 20% full, if that. Other stores seemed to be experiencing plenty of traffic so I'm wondering if people are starting to take their frustrations out on WallyWorld.

Fort Smith was just as interesting. We went to a mall there. Sign on the door demanding masks. I sailed right through with a naked face. That was when it got fun. People stared at me but the looks were not hostile. They seemed to be thinking, "Wait. That lady doesn't have to wear a mask. Why do I?" They appeared to accept that there was a reason I wasn't masked and it set them to thinking.

I hope to hell they keep thinking. This has to stop.

Tensions between the US and Iran have been going from bad to worse in recent months.

In September Tehran is believed to be behind a missile attack on a Saudi oil plant.

Then, in January, a US drone strike killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad which the Pentagon believed to be masterminding attacks on US interests in the Middle East.

Tehran responded by firing ballistic missiles targeting American forces in Iraq .

And while the coronavirus pandemic has engulfed both Iran and the US for months, there have been increasing signs of a war breaking out.

This is because America is arguing to extend a years-long UN weapons embargo on Tehran that is due to expire in October.

There was also the recent incident over Syria involving an American jet fighter approaching an Iranian passenger plane.

Some may remember that Ev Mecham impeachment fracas in Arizona, back in the late 80's. That effort was begun and organized by a young Ed Buck, who hated Mecham because of his religious views, and who was able to find allies with money who didn't like Mecham either. Ed Buck made his name in Democrat circles by hounding Ed Mecham out of office, after which he realized there was a lot more money in SoCal than there was in Phoenix and Tempe, so he took his game over there.

A very notable supporter and fundraiser for Adam Schiff.

320 Rand Paul just introduced legislation to fund families directly using existing federal education funding.

The funding would follow the child to wherever they received an education

That could be a public school, private school, or homeschool option.

This would fund students instead of systems.
Posted by: Lizzy at August 05, 2020 12:32 PM


Eh, that sounds good on its face, but this is how you get inflated tuition amounts, just like with colleges. For instance, if the government says, "OK, you get $500 a month per child for education" the better (whether actually better or perceived to be better due to location, marketing, etc) schools will make their cost $650. Then people will complain that a quality education for their child is now unaffordable and the amount the government hands out will get jacked up to $650 a month per child. That's not even getting into all the easy fraud.

323 >>She's already been caught saying she did and did not read the FISA docs at different times. So we know she's a liar. It just remains to be determined exactly what she's lying about now.

That's now how the process of getting warrants, FISA or otherwise, works.

Cops, in this case the FBI, do the police work of gathering information and verifying it's truth and accuracy and submit a request for a warrant. The prosecutors, in this case the DOJ, don't run their own separate investigations, they rely in the police to be truthful. All they do is certify that proper procedures were followed and the necessary information is on the warrant application.

The question all along was who knew that the Steele dossier was a Clinton product and was total garbage. Yates is saying she was not told by the FBI.

She's lying about other stuff, she might be lying about this, but the bottom line is she is claiming that it was Comey and the FBI that lied to the DOJ.

If nothing else Yates and Comey are now at odds.

389 "The Governor of Beirut has said that 300,000 people have been left homeless after an enormous explosion tore across the city, killing at least a hundred people and wounding thousands,"

Well, at least no lock down.

Cantor, out

Keven McCarthy, good


Cantor losing his primary made me laugh harder than anything since the IOC told Gaylord LOLGF.

392
When a nuclear weapon or a large amount of a conventional explosive is detonated in sufficiently humid air, the "negative phase" of the shock wave causes a rarefaction (reduction in density) of the air surrounding the explosion, but not contained within it. This rarefaction results in a temporary cooling of that air, which causes a condensation of some of the water vapor contained in it. When the pressure and the temperature return to normal, the Wilson cloud dissipates.


The Wilson cloud was the transient white ring that surrounded the explosion and dissipated quickly. As explained above, it is a physical phenomenon, not a chemical one.

394 I mean, neato on trying to scare a full on aircraft carrier by racing your cigarette boats around it, but you'd have to go buy a few other ships first that might be inclined to sink your dumb ass before you get to the carrier.

Can you imagine the scene when someone came up with this idea?

"Hey, I know. We'll build a play version of an American carrier and then pretend to sink it! That'll scare the Americans!"

"Great idea, Mustafa. Pass the falafel, wouldja?"

Storing explosives in the middle of the city shows how little regard for life Muslims have."


Who knows if we'll ever find out what really happened, but I had to smile at this take I read yesterday:

"Leaving 2750 tons of nitrate stacked up next to crates of fireworks amid 105 degrees in the Port of Beirut --because it's nobody's problem and anyway who's going to do anything about it?--is so absolutely perfectly exactly Lebanon that it pretty much has to be the right answer."

396 Those that have been saying Nothing Will Happen are still at the moment
right, unless you consider harsh words to be actual justice.

I've been assured by one thread-hijacking commenter here for months now that we're all pants-shitters -- and that James Comey getting a harshly-worded letter (when the DOJ declined to prosecute) was a far worse punishment for him than actually being indicted, prosecuted, and imprisoned.

397 118. How deep is the rest of the opening. If parts of the boat are showing at low tide the entire opening could very well be as shallow or more. It is stated that it is one of the main harbors in Iran. If they are stuck in a deep part how deep is the rest of it. Take into account current and tidal currents and navigating a large ship can become very hard fast.

I've known several intelligent Arabs, and they all had one trait in common - they were Westernized, and treated their religion more like a social club than a behavioral straightjacket.

There was one devout exception - He was a Coptic (Orthodox) Christian.

400 Not able to see Yates testimony but from what can be read about her words--she's lawyered up and rehearsed effectively.

She's dirty and complicit but the point for her , at this point, is to make sure bear does not eat her first.

Yes, its just a nutless Congressional hearing but it IS an 'R' offensive. ....you know, sort of like Trump plays the game. We are always complaining that R's , other than Trump, stick their neck out for nothing .
At least today Cruz et al are trying to take it to the Dems. Wish it were an every day phenomena.

406 As hilarious this is, Iran is still a threat to us in that area; I speak as an Anti-ship Missile Defense specialist. This is what I trained to do.

Don't get me wrong - we train almost exclusively to the Iranian threat in that area, from the most basic training scenarios to multi-ship and multi-service integrated wargames. We know what they have and what that can do.

But they can still surprise us, and there's real risk of complacency. Note the incident a few years ago where they took a few Sailors hostage.
