We Are the Good Guys: U.S. Warship Rescues Iranians From Somali Pirates

Just days after Iran warned the U.S. to keep its navy ships out of the Persian Gulf- we retaliated with an international act of kindness.

That’s right, one of those nasty American destroyers Iran recently threatened with its mighty navy, the U.S.S. Kidd, heard a distress call from the small ship pictured above and freed the 13-member crew and detained 15 Somali pirates without incident. The Iraninan vessel had been held for over 40 days.

Can you imagine the ire of the Ayatollahs?

If they were smart, they’d rescind their threats and offer to pay us to protect them. Still awaiting word on the official Iranian “thank you.”
