Reports emerged Tuesday via Fox News that the U.S.S Mahan, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer currently deployed to the Persian Gulf had a dangerously close run in with an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Fast Attack vessel on Monday. The craft passed within 1,000 yards of the Mahan and had all its outboard weapons systems manned, according to U.S. Officials.

The Mahan altered course and fired a series of flares while sounding its danger alarms, however, the attack craft fired no shots and passed by without further provocation. This marks the second time in 2017 that the U.S.S Mahan has had a run in with Iranian ships, as they also fired three warning shots while cruising through the Straits of Hormuz in early January.

In March the USNS Invincible had to change course as Iranian attack vessels came within 600 yards of the U.S. Navy ship. No warnings shots or flares were fired in that incident.

 Tensions with Iran have remained high in recent months, as President Donald Trump ordered airstrikes in Syria in retaliation to chemical weapons used by Assad, and after Iran announced recent ballistics missile tests in defiance of the U.N. resolution.




  1. How one can extend the range of the Wireless N router? Concerning an Xtreme N cellular router (Dlink). I ought to extend the reach from the wireless signal. I have learned to do it for the G signal. I have to know how to do this for an N signal. Is it possible to apply regular N routers as repeaters. If so, how do you configure them. Thanks for any information.

  9. I must say, as significantly as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a excellent grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from additional than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so substantially. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just heading for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your own thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
