    Report: U.S. bolstering Persian Gulf military presence
    The Obama administration is bolstering the U.S. presence in the Persian Gulf by building a secret missile-defense radar station in Qatar, sending an additional aircraft carrier and preparing for its biggest minesweeping exercises in the region, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.

    An unarmed ship in waters frequented by pirates is being approached by a small boat that has 3 outboard motors and you think someone is trigger happy.

    What does the Navy have to do to make it a major incident? Sink it?
