We all know the USS Abraham Lincoln and her strike group is headed to confront Iran. Iran has said multiple times that if it wants to, it can shut down the Strait of Hormuz. To which 5th Fleet Commander Vice Admiral Jim Malloy said: "Like hell you can bitch!" (probably).What he actually said was that “If I need to bring it inside the strait, I will do so.” Which prompted a smile from our team as we laughed about how soon Iran would find their ships on the bottom of the ocean should they contest that assertion. It's like us saying we can stop a speeding bullet...yeah once or twice, maybe a few more times if they hit us in the SAPI plates, but it's not like we're Superman and the shit bounces off of us.But to think that with the beefed-up forces in the area, which include four B-52 strategic bombers, plus all the other ships like destroyers and cruisers and who knows if there are any submarines (we keep where they are on the down-low for obvious reasons), that Iran would do something stupid...well...we don't want to be the ones who underestimate how dumb people can be, but this should be common sense for Iran.Malloy went on to further emphasize that Iran ain't shit by saying of the USS Abraham Lincoln "I’m not restricted in any way, I’m not challenged in any way, to operate her anywhere in the Middle East.”Basically calling out Iran by saying, it's not that we're not afraid of you, it's that we literally know you can't match our firepower in any way shape or form. How true that is, is yet to be determined as the real world has its ways of throwing a monkey wrench into even the best-laid plans.But, either way, we like the BDE that Vice Admiral Jim Malloy is putting off. Iran can GEAD.
