Persian Gulf Maritime Missions

I guess traditional 11/11 US Veteran's Day wasn't just observed in US: Ayatollah praises Army of the Islamic Republic:
"The armed forces have stood by the people and are
carrying out their duty through reliance on God Almighty."

Seems that over the last several days, Iran has issued 'Jihad-style' warnings while reports of their 'unmanned, and (undetectable) spy drones' send images across Iran's...State controlled TV.

Evidently while Iran was busy with "Great Prophet War Games"; we were busy with our naval maneuvers off of the Iranian Gulf; aimed at halting arms-trafficking...
USS Boxer Strike Group, entered the Persian Gulf Thursday, Nov. 9;
as the largest US landing force to reach this water in a decade.
( They even rescued a group of stranded Iranians!)

Amphibious Squadron 5, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (Seals), the Coast Guard cutter Midgett and Canadian frigate HMCS Ottawa, as well as the USS Dubuque, USS Comstock, the largest landing craft in the US Navy, USS Bunker Hill and the guided missile destroyers USS Benfold and USS Howard.

The group’s commander, Capt. David Angood said that if “anything
important happens in the real-world environment, the task force
will deal with it in the most efficient manner.”
During its deployment, BOXESG is prepared to operate alongside coalition partners and conduct MSO under international maritime conventions. MSO help set the conditions for security and stability in the maritime environment, as well as complement the counter-terrorism and security efforts of regional nations.
These operations deny international terrorists use of
the maritime environment as a venue for attack or to
transport personnel, weapons or other material!

-Jay Tea, at Wizbang:
Points to the Iranian spy mission and Chinese sub
incident and posts something for the record:
Excerpt:
“The United States has not lost a big carrier since 1942, with the sinking of the USS Hornet off Guadalcanal. The last time we lost any fleet carrier was with the sinking of the USS Princeton, and the last carrier of any type to be sunk was at the Battle Off Samar, both in October of 1944.”

Our US Navy, headquartered in Manama, Bahrain, is responsible for a sea encompassing about 2.5 million square miles of water including the Arabian Gulf, Arabian Sea, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Gulf of Oman, and parts of the Indian Ocean...
