US Navy Warplanes Damage Iranian Warships

Pentagon sources confirmed a retaliatory strike on two Iranian military vessels involved in the recent seizure of the USS Boxer during a minimally-manned upkeep period.  A strike package of F/A-18C Hornets assigned to the VFA-41 "Black Aces" squadron attacked the ships in port with infrared guided missiles, severely damaging both of them.  While the location of the USS Boxer remains unclear, an administration spokesman said that a very clear message has been delivered to Iran that neither interference with shipping in the Strait of Hormuz nor seizure of US military assets will not be tolerated.  Mission details were made available HERE.
