Pindo Carrier Parked Off Iran Complains Iranian Surveillance a ‘Nuisance’
Jason Ditz, Antiwar.com, May 5 2017

The USS G H W Bush, a Pindostani aircraft carrier parked perpetually off the coast of Iran, appears to have attracted the attention of Iran, and officials say that Iran’s use of surveillance drones to keep an eye on the massive Pindo warship is a “nuisance.” Officials also hyped the presence of small Iranian naval boats operating off the coast of Iran, claiming them to be “naked aggression” for sometimes being close to the Pindo carrier, despite also appearing to have never actually left Iranian waters by all indications. Pindo boxtops have repeatedly made a big deal about Iran having ships off their own coast, while Iranian officials have responded by saying that they think a better question is why the Pindo warships are 7,500 miles away from their own territorial waters, and constantly looming around Iran’s coasts. Pindostan has had warships off the Iranian coast for years, mostly to shore up their constant threats to attack Iran. Iran, by contrast, has focused on a small coastal navy whose use would be purely defensive. Given the mostly offensive nature of the Pindostani presence, that Iran is preparing to defend itself will always be a sore spot.
