U.S. Navy ship fires at boat

<span style="font-weight: bold">U.S. Navy ship fires at small boat in Persian Gulf</span>

<span style="font-weight: bold">Washington (CNN)</span> -- A U.S. military supply ship fired Monday at a small boat in the Persian Gulf after it came too close, apparently killing one person on board, two U.S. officials said.

The USNS Rappahannock, a fuel resupply ship, fired on what the officials called a "small, white pleasure craft" 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the Dubai port of Jebel Ali.

Obama gets to apologise again!




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: U.S. Navy ship fires at boat

Kudos to the US Navy.....Nice shooting.........

Any one who has enuff money to own a boat of that size is (or should be) a educated person......and thus should know better than to approach a US Navy vessle.......

Your never to old to learn something stupid

I've been busy all day, did I miss the spiking of the football? Probably be all over the next campaign ad

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
