Here's Your Video Proof
When the reports came out of the five Iranian Revolutionary Guards speedboats harassing three American warships over the weekend, self-styled "progressives" immediately launched into cries of "Tonkin Gulf II" and demanded to see video proof. Well, the Navy provided the proof, in the form of video shot from the bridge of USS Hopper (DDG 70):

My take on the whole incident? Some Revolutionary Guards commander started believing their propaganda, decided to try to stir things up, and is in the process of getting his pee-pee slapped. The mullahs running Iran know that the only way they could lose power (and their lives) in the next decade or so is to provoke a war with the U.S., and while their Revolutionary Guardsmen might believe all their claptrap, they don't. They're survivors.
