U.S. Ships in Persian Gulf

August 05, 1987

We know Iran doesn't want us in the Persian Gulf. Not only are we there, but we're reflagging the Kuwaiti tankers alone. We get less than 7% of our oil from the gulf region. Now it seems we are not getting much assistance there on minesweeping operations . . . so we have our men hanging over the bows of the ships. Hopefully they can see underneath the water for submerged mines! So now a reflagged tanker hits a mine and we're upset!

What did they think we'd get--a standing ovation?
