The US flex muscles at sea border of Iran

The US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln crosses into the Perian Gulf 20 kilometer from the shores of Iran.

The US fifth fleet in Bahrain has been strenghtened by an Air Craft carrier.

The US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln has sailed through the Strait of Hormuz, close to the coast of Iran, for the second time in recent weeks.

A BBC reporter on board said an Iranian patrol boat at one point passed by two miles (3.2km) from the carrier.
The carrier was accompanied by a US cruiser and destroyer.

Iranian officials recently threatened to close the channel, through which 20 per cent of the world’s oil exports pass, in a row over oil trade embargoes.

The BBC’s Jonathan Beale on board the Abraham Lincoln says the US has insisted it will keep the busy shipping lane open.

At its narrowest point, the Strait of Hormuz is only 21 nautical miles (40km) wide. Earlier, the US navy said the Iranian patrol boat passed within about half a mile of the carrier, but they later corrected this to two miles.

My comment:

Iran has over the years given promises in public to destroy Israel. This is not the main concern for Washington. If it had been, the nuclear facilities of Iran had been terminated long time ago.

The main concern for the US, is that 25 per cent of oil the US needs comes from the Middle East. The export of crude oil through the Strait of Hormuz must be protected at any costs.

This is the mission given to the US fifth fleet based in Bahrain.

 Acts 2:40
With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.”

Will the US bomb Iran, is the Ayatollah do not block the oil export?

Not a chance in a million.  Russia, India and China are all major trading partners with Iran.

  1. Iran/Syria are just pawns on the board. The true players are the US/NATO vs RUSSIA/CHINA and their allies. WORLD DOMINATION IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.

    1. Yes, should read “flex muscles”.

      I thought they were fishing for mussels. 🙂

      It is not easy writing in another language…when I was writing/speaking Italian, I made all kinds of funny mistakes!!!

      Bless your work, Ivar.

        This was a sweet correction. Thanks a lot for blessing me. I need to have someone who proof read my articles for me. News That Matters now have almost 5.000 daily readers. We should have had hundreds of US dollars in income, and some staff to produce good articles.

        I am sorry for my mistakes.

      2. Dear Ivar,

        There is no need to apologize! You are doing great w/ the English language! many americans – having lived isolated in american-English only communities – may not appreciate all the hard work that goes into writing in another language. So do not take to heart harsh critics of your tiny mistakes. Have a good day! And again, may you & your work be blessed. Peace always in Christ!

  2. Dear Ivar,
    You are doing a great job & doing your best ,to confute all that matters around us, burning for the Glory of GOD against sin and heresy and error,in confirmation & harmony of the Bible…
    Just forget all the critics.What is important , is that I get the message right.Again I repeat you are passing on great, worthwhile , informative and useful message.
    All blessing to you.

      I believe your asumption that USA will not bomb Iran is correct.
      to much at stake w/ russia and china as trading partners w/ iran
      And as i have said before you do just fine at getting your point across in english. I always no what you mean. They say if you get the first and last letters in a word correct it doesn’t matter how they are mixed up in between, because when reading english each individual letter is not considered. the word as a hole is what is looked at. So dnot wrory abuot waht poelpe tihnk
      yuor dion jsut fnie
      Have a great day
