    OK, you're in charge what should be the appropriate US response?

        But seriously, Not much The USN can do but continue operating in the area and maybe send a Carrier Strike Group

          Nice dodge,

          Seriously though you're our resident boats guy. would you approve of a US sub closely tailing the boat back to port at least?

            That area is too shallow for a submarine to operate in.

              Can't we sneak in some Navy seals and at least short sheet their beds?

                Park a helicopter right over their heads and dare them to do something about it. If they try, turn it into floating debris pile.

                At least they can enjoy the ear-splitting noise and rotor wash.

                  Were these lasers attached to sharks?

                    If The Iranian Patrol Boat was in International waters? Sure. If not The Super Stallion would be violating Iranian Airspace.

                      Read up on the Strait of Hormuz.

                      The U.S. is apparently in dispute with Oman and Iran regarding navigation of same.

                      If we felt the need to enforce navigation laws, and felt that Iran's actions were in violation of same, we might not give a shit about their airspace.

                        I don't need to read up on it. Oman and Iran can say anything they want. We keep to the shipping lane. (Sometimes) and use the internationally recognized boundaries

                          Trump is just the level headed diplomat I want handling this delicate situation. This should go well.

                              I'm not advocating this at all but I bet there are numerous folks in the Navy who want to blow the fuck out of some Iranian ships.
