TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran on Wednesday called video and audio released by the Pentagon showing Iranian Revolutionary Guards boats confronting U.S. warships in the Strait of Hormuz "fabricated," a state-run television station reported.
"The footage released by the U.S. Navy was compiled using file pictures and the audio has been fabricated," the English-language channel Press TV quoted an official in the Revolutionary Guards as saying.
If there was ever any doubt about why it is so important to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons here is an example. The actual act of harassing US warships was caught on tape and the Iranian regime is completely denying the activity. The only thing worse is completely denying the existence of the Holocaust and calling for the annihilation of Israel.
The other side of this video is an economic gain to Iran. By keeping tensions high in the gulf the price of oil remains astronomical. Gas is currently $3.20 a gallon here and they are predicting $4.00 dollars a gallon by summer.
