A Cyclone-class patrol craft warded off an Iranian patrol boat that was approaching a U.S. Navy guided-missile cruiser on Tuesday in the Persian Gulf, a Navy official told USNI News.

USS Thunderbolt (PC-12) fired “multiple warning shots” after an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy Nassar-class patrol boat came within 150 yards of the patrol craft and one nautical mile of nearby cruiser USS Vella Gulf (CG-72). The incident occurred at about 10:20 A.M. local time, or about 3:20 A.M. EST, according to video of the encounter obtained by USNI News.

Note the location of the incident.  An obvious danger to the US citizenry.

I am sure the US would tolerate an Iranian naval fleet in the Caribbean.
