You copied his post and then replied to it in the same way I copied yours and am replying to it.

If so then it certainly will say, it can patrol only and protect the "ships" who want passage in the shipping "lane"(thus not close to the Iranian 18 mile zone). We do that on purpose to irritate the Iranians; just to see how far we can go. That is the issue.
No, that is not the issue. There are international laws governing the seas. The US doesn't control anything other than its own territorial waters. It patrols various spots of the globe in the same way Russia, China, and countless other countries patrol various spots of the globe.
We have alliances and collective defense treaties with numerous countries where our military's are legally obligated to coordinate with each other and state that an attack on one country is an attack on the other.
Let me see if I can predict your response to that fact...
America forced every single country to sign those numerous treaties. America is the devil. Damn America.
I never seem to read any outrage from you about Russian aircraft flying into American airspace or Russian Navy ships testing how far they can get inside of our territorial waters before we escort them out. Where is your vitriol about them meddling where they don't belong?
Hell - I'm sure you would blame America if Russia sunk an American ship off the coast of San Diego because our military is too big and we deserve it.
