Well by all means Mr. Olmert sail your fibreglass gunboats and measly destroyers into the Persian Gulf and see what happens.
But don't come crying to the US after Israeli war ships starting hitting the sea floor, struggling to compute this escalation in tensions.
It is an ACT OF WAR, and Iran would have every right to respond to a naval blockade within it's territorial waters.
These Zionist nutjobs seriously want to cripple an already economically starved nation that's suffering more than a 25% poverty rate with even more
restrictions on their trade?
Well if this isn't bringing Tehran to the discussion table now, what makes you think EVEN MORE
sanctions will do any good?
If anything it will emblazon Ahmadinejad's cause and give him more ammo to use in furthering his Nuclear Ambitions.
And they expect the Iranians to still sit and take it, to just wither away and no tdo a thing about it? What Fantasy Kingdom does Ehud Olmert reside
Israel was in the Middle East last time I checked.
This quote I cannot believe he actually made:
"Iranian business people who would not be able to land anywhere in the world would pressure the regime," Haaretz quoted Olmert as
Sigh.... where do they get the balls? Seriously.. where?
Israel needs to come off it's high horse and spend a few minutes back down on Earth.
They're not helping the situation in the Middle East by calling for actions such as this, nor have they ever really done anything to foster
stability. They sure know how to provoke and escalate tensions but as for fanning the flames, that seems to be a foreign concept to them.
You don't want Nuclear Islamic States and sponsored-terrorist groups?
Then STOP friggin' making ultimatums and pressuring people. Just stop.
And they wonder why they have to deal with rockets and car bombs going off everyday in Haifa or Jerusalem, when they act like the Crown Princess of
the Middle East who always gets her way.
You give the Israelis an inch, they take a mile.
