Playing Chicken At Sea

Looks like the Iranians have been doing it.

Pretty common sort of game between navies, really. The Russians were notorious for it during the Cold War. In this particular case, with the USS Cole having been attacked by just such a boat, you can't take chances.

It's a shame they dont just sink the boats that approach them.
Sink a few and that nonsense would stop.

@Ian: Iran's a sovereign country, Ian. It's an act of war to sink their boats without more provocation than is seen in the video.
