President Donald Trump announced in a tweet Thursday morning that he has “instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.”

The order came after recent Iranian aggression against U.S. Navy ships in the Persian Gulf. The U.S Navy’s 5th fleet reported that six Navy warships were conducting drills with U.S. Army Apache attack helicopters in international waters off the Iranian coast last Wednesday when they were repeatedly harassed by 11 Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Navy ships. The 5th Fleet added that the Iranian ships repeatedly crisscrossed the U.S. vessels at extremely close range and high speeds, coming within ten yards at one point.

The Navy statement said that Iran’s dangerous and provocative actions “increased the risk of miscalculation and collision” and that they violated international maritime “rules of the road.”

Furthermore, on April 1, President Trump revealed on Twitter that he received information that Iran was “planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq.” 

The Iranian regime has been hostile towards the U.S. since the Islamic Revolution in the late 1970’s.

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Scott Mannn discussed the withdrawal from Afghanistan in depth on the latest episode of The Sara Carter Show. Mann claims that although it was a botched withdrawal, our service members did their best. Instead, the government is to blame for the failure.

“Our Vets led the way when the government failed,” Mann said. “They fought till the last bullet. They fought until the bitter end, even when their president and their generals took bribes and abandoned them.” Therefore, Mann is advocating for immediate visas to these Afghan Special Forces.

Meanwhile, families like Sara Carter’s have stepped up to help Afghans out of the country. “It was the veteran population, for the most part, and the military family population who looked at this and said: ‘Okay, fine, nobody else is coming. I’ll do it.’ And we picked up our cell phones. We started working together to find ways to try to guide and shepherd our Afghan friends to some kind of safety, if not freedom,” Mann said. “We need their help. People like you [Sara Carter] who’ve been on this problem from the very beginning. You know, you’re on a 911 dispatch call, and you’re the dispatcher. You’ve been on the call for a month, and you are the dispatcher that is assisting a family who is being murdered one by one. You’re staying on the line with them as this is occurring. You have no shift relief.”

So Mann is lobbying Congress to write a law, that any Afghan who went through the school of excellence as a commando Afghan Special Forces, should have an immediate visa.
