Gibraltar ON ALERT: Royal Navy 'OPENS FIRE' on Spanish ship 'harassing' submarine

Via Iver

The incident happened after a Guardia Civil went over a submarine

The Spanish Guarda Civil boat was said to have sailed across an American sub in the shocking incident.

Warning flares were reportedly fired by the British Navy boat to warn off the European vessel.
It comes as tensions heighten around the UK-controlled peninsula after a series of aggressive acts by Spain.

A source said: “This is not only a very dangerous game for the Spanish to play but it is unbecoming of a NATO ally to treat the US Navy with such contempt.

  1. An Axis ally acting the fool toward the US?
    Someone should remind them the last time they fkd with the US.
    They lasted 2 years until they were forced to surrender, and they were being HEAVILY propped up germany...
    "On July 10, 1943, Operation Husky, the code name for the invasion of Sicily, began with airborne and amphibious landings on the island’s southern shores. Jarred by the Allied invasion, the Italian fascist regime fell rapidly into disrepute, as the Allies had hoped. On July 24, 1943, Prime Minister Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) was deposed and arrested. A new provisional government was set up under Marshal Pietro Badoglio (1871-1956), who had opposed Italy’s alliance with Nazi Germany and who immediately began secret discussions with the Allies about an armistice."

    1. On the whole,Italian armed forces performed poorly.

    2. Another history lesson for those concerned.

      Franco's Falangists were indeed fascists and under the table allies of Hitler and Mussolini. They remained in power until his death in 1975. Spain's resentments over Gibraltar however go back to the Napoleonic wars when the Brits seized it after Napoleon put his brother on the throne of Spain.

      One would think that having fought to rid themselves of 700 years of the Moors brutal oppression they would be more concerned with that freedom being lost to the flood of Muslim immigrants pouring into Spain than about Gibraltar hoes border has long been open and provided many jobs for neighboring Spaniards. Europe has gone insane.

  2. NATO - what a joke. When I think of NATO, I think of them
    there mercenaries creeping around Russia's Eastern border.
    Trying to create another war.

    1. NATO: About as unless as SEATO defending South Vietnam.

  3. I also do not think much of NATO. And Spain fooling around with a USA Nuclear submarine is Casus Belli

    1. Seems they can get away with more today than before we had atomic weapons.
