The recent news story that the Iranian Navy is moving some of its ships closer to our waters should be cause for concern by our government. Why is Iran doing this? Obviously,there is a reason for this action,which could certainly be conceived as provocative.
Our Navy needs to position ships near the Iranian ships and watch their every move. Even after recent overtures from our country to the Iranian government, Iran is a nation that is not to be trusted until it really proves its sincerity regarding reducing its nuclear program, as well as not meddling in the affairs of neighboring nations.
Then and only then will the U.S. be willing to constructively engage in a dialogue with Iran.
