On a side note NR, I really like it how your icons are overreactions for your thread. Always using the stunned face and alarm is awesome.

with 40% of the Iranian people living below the poverty line (according to the CIA factbook), I am curious whether Iran might better spend their resources on making the lives of the average Iranian better?
And, as far as Israel goes, I am wondering how a Muslim nation can seek to destroy a people who also recognize and worship the SAME God.....oh certainly, Allah is spelled differently than Yaweh but they are the same God? I thought that Islam was a religion of peace? How is that they can seek to destroy an entire people? Wouldn't peaceful co-existence be better? Perhaps, with time, Islam will convert the Jews? Or does Islam fear the reverse? I am not trying to be inflammatory here, I am simply asking honest questions.

The Kangan and Kharg look very much like tankers or fleet supply vessels... Have you got a link or any other information on them that would support the cruise missile claim?
Also, what ASW capabilities do the patrol boats have?
