Iranian sail boat defended itself against U.S. Coast Guard
The U.S. Coast Guard has a policy of burning private boats anywhere in the world and a small fishing sailboat from Iran did not go along with the policy
As preposterous as it may sound, the U.S. coast guard boards boats everywhere in the world, not just along the American coast, and if things are not perfect, they detain everyone on the boat and burn it, even if it is a multi million dollar yacht. Knowing this policy, an Iranian fishing boat that was operating off the coast of Iran refused to allow boarding by the U.S. coast guard. The Coast Guard fired on this boat, but according to the Washington Post, left it floating with all aboard. At the end of this report is a link to a Washington Post article that downplays the Coast Guard's hostile role in international waters, and the attitude expressed in the Washington Post article says a LOT.
The following report about the coast guard's tyranny is 100 percent verified and accurate
About six months before I was anonymously detained over the Fukushima report, I was invited to dinner at a good friends home while I was in Bakersfield. His son, Nicholas Theriault, was on leave from the Coast Guard and I was invited over to meet him.
I already had background information about the U.S. coast guard sinking every boat that approached Ecuador, sight unseen. That's right, the U.S. Coast Guard put up a blockade off the coast of Ecuador, and sank every boat that approached that nation (this was going on a few years ago and was still going on when I talked to Nicholas).
The Coast guard also has been assigned to patrol the coasts of many other nations, invited or not. So I played Nicholas for information by seeming to agree with and be enthusiastic about everything he told me.
I said, What do you do when you come across a boat that is out to sea, in fully international waters, TOTALLY OUT OF AMERICA's JURISDICTION. I picked a no man's land as an example, the equatorial region 2,000 miles south of Hawaii, where NO drug dealers would be likely to go, where there would ONLY be innocents.
He said, we board it. I said, but that's illegal. You have no jurisdiction in that region. He said, "THAT DOES NOT MATTER, BECAUSE WE ARE THE U.S. AND WHAT IS ANYONE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?"
I said, What happens when you go on a boat, and there are no drugs, and there is no smuggling going on, NOTHING, the people on the boat did NOTHING. He said, "we check their papers. If they are out to sea, and they do not have their papers in order, we take them off the boat, imprison them, and burn the boat. We cannot leave the boat just drifting out at sea. If there is no one on it it is a derelict, We HAVE TO burn it."
I said, WHY ARREST THEM IF THERE IS NO CRIME OCCURRING. He said, PAPERS ARE EVERYTHING. IF THEY DO NOT HAVE THEM, WE IMPRISON THEM AND TAKE THEM BACK TO THE U.S., AND BURN THE BOAT. I said, EVEN IF IT IS A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR YACHT OR SAIL BOAT and he said YES.
Then I said, Well, what happens if after being processed in the U.S. there was nothing wrong. He said, They get to go home. I said, Well, what about the boat? He said, it's their loss, we don't care.
I said, Well, If they leave from a home port, and are just out for a cruise, and are returning to that same home port, they would not need papers. He said, THAT DOES NOT MATTER. IF THAT IS THE STORY, WE STILL JAIL THEM, BURN THEIR BOAT, AND TAKE THEM BACK TO THE U.S.
And I made it very clear, I then asked him, SO, if you find a boat 50 miles off the coast of New Zealand, and the people on the boat do not have their documents in order, you burn the boat and take them back to the U.S., even though it would be obvious that they really probably are just out for a cruise and returning to New Zealand, where EVERYONE IN THE HARBOR WOULD RECOGNIZE THEM AND NEVER RAISE AN EYEBROW UPON THEIR RETURN, and HE SAID YES.
I do not think even Americans realize how much of an evil empire America has become. But the Iranians sure do, because the evils of the Coast Guard are probably well published there. Fat chance you would ever see a report about what the Coast Guard really does in the Washington post - which gets to the point of an article they recently published, where they played it all down and made it look like a friendly chummy affair, and those backwards Iranians were being prudes:

After reading the article, consider this: What business does America have boarding sail boats used for village fishing in Iran? What kind of tyranny is America anyway? And it is not just Iran, America does this in Latin America, Africa and everywhere else, even Vancouver Island in Vancouver Canada. Why has this burning of boats, which is a frequent occurence never in the news? It should be HUGE NEWS, why not a peep about this in the press?
Kudos to the Iranians for showing force against tyranny, it would serve the coast guard right if the crew got shot.
