Boat People

The Pentagon says an Iranian gunboat harassed U.S. forces in the Gulf; Iran says it didn’t. The navy spokesman played a video and audio tape of threats to blow up the vessel; Iran said it was a fake. Either side might be making up stuff, but which has more credibility for telling the truth these days?

Meanwhile, I read somewhere that the Pentagon is purposely calling the waterway the ‘Arabian’ Gulf now, rather than the ‘Persian’, to try to piss off the mullahs. Are these guys twelve? I guess it makes sense to the Bushites to provoke the adversaries by trying to be a prick. Maybe the Iranian News Agency should reciprocate by referring to ‘American-occupied Colorado.’
