#1 Earlier today, it was claimed that an unmanned Iranian bomb boat was discovered lying in wait for the Duncan in the Red Sea.

The remote-controlled Blowfish' was reportedly spotted by Saudi forces in the destroyer's path as it headed south from the Suez Canal to protect Gulf shipping lanes.

The small vessel was laden with explosives, enough to blow a hole in the side of the destroyer, and steered from up to four miles away, sources told the Mirror.

Former naval officer Simon Warrington said: 'The threat from the Houthis, who as Iran's proxy militia do Tehran's dirty work, is very real.'

#4 What the hell how's a shaheed supposed to martyr himself in a bomb attack when they're using remote controlled boats?
