I really dont think this would be a very good idea. Actually a rather bad one. This move would do nothing but start war, for sure. I dont see where it would have any other outcome than Israel and Iran squaring off. I will not be surprised to see Israel try to provoke this now and daring the Iranians if this indeed true. This seems to be what Israel has wanted, a reason to attack Iran. Not good, not good at all.

The people and world do have a choice, psychological warfare is one of the most important parts of war. If the government loses the support of the people than it has been shown time and time again that civil chaos and anarchy will ensue.

This leaves whatever country is not being supported at a huge disadvantage, due to soldiers not having as high as patriotism etc..

Agreed, Israel might take this as a direct threat to it's security and actually start pre-emptively hitting targets. Should be another interesting week.

At least Israel now have legitimate targets to destroy. No more boarding of ships, just bomb them on sight.

I don't know the implications. I'm not very well versed in the big picture.

As I was reading through it though I thought that Israel would have to stand down while in international waters, in a face saving posture while the Iranian vessel(s) enter into Gaza waters. Once inside Gaza waters, the block-aid will have been breached.

This is the moment Israel gets all butt-hurt and decides on enforcing the block-aid, attacking first, with an explanation (not an excuse) that the block-aid was breached.

You know, if Iran is willing to go the route, I'm willing to gamble? that they have some ICBMs at the ready. Maybe have the boat crews as ones who are serving a life/death sentence; expendable martyrs for when the sky cracks open?

I don't see however that the Iranians will be willing to expedite a raid over the heads of innocents/those receiving aid. Yeah, I said innocents. Like a baby who can't fend for himself...It don't ration out in my head or in my post. Sorry.

Of one thing you can be sure of is that Iran is miffed that Turkey has decided to start to assert itself as a regional power. A resurgent Turkey will supplant Iran and may well introduce moderation and order into the crappy politics which sits on their doorstep. After all, for the last few decades Iran has been one of the proverbial “spanners in the work” through their support and funding of anti-Israeli groups and their refusal (like other predominately Muslim nations) not to recognise Israel. At least Turkey recognises Israel!

I suspect Turkey would not want Iran farting about in their back yard. This is a situation moulded by Turkey and is of their design and making. It is Turkey who has a vested interest in an outcome which yields a dividend which at least raises their reputation and interests and any hint of Iran trying to exploit the situation (or mess it up) would be unwelcome indeed. At least Israel can deal with Turkey and that is probably what will happen – an Israeli / Turkish accord. Watch this space.

Can you imagine if the Palestinian’s started to turn towards Turkey as their benefactor rather than their traditional supporters in Syria and Iran. We may get peace!!!

the interesting thing for me in all this, and i hope this isnt off topic. But a couple of days ago I was reading a forum/post on here about a black ops or operation blackjack cartoon that someone had said they decoded a message in it. They where stating it had illuminati coding in it and they had deciphered it. I may not be wording all this exactly right as I am no expert on this subject. But find it very interesting and quite possibly real. But the decoder was saying something about war breaking out this month. After reading this, all this craziness starts going down. They where saying something about the 23rd-26th not sure of exact dates. That is a couple of weeks away and would seem a feasible time for these countries and tptb to get the msm ramping up and the chips toi fall in place. This is all making for quite an interesting month, and maybe just a bit frightening.

Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later get squish just like grape. Mr. miyagi

That's an insightful perspective, even somehow optimistic. Thank you for that.

Now wouldn't that be provocating? I am happy to see they are merely 'offering' to do this and not that they actually say they will. If they would, there would be a serious chance that we'll end up in war and I suppose that is something we all want to avoid - at all cost.

IDF General says excitedly: "Send another 3 nuclear subs to the Persian Gulf on top of the other 2 already there!!"

Are there any other ships on the way? If not then its all just bluffing and conjecture at this point.

There will be another flotilla in several weeks. In addition to the Iranians, there also goes a rumor that Erdogan and/or Turkish naval vessels will join the flotilla.

they have .... and they will

then they will use their own sunken ship

Then the missiles start flying!!!
Question is:
what kind of missiles ????

I can't believe this... Iran doesn't want to provoke Israel into a war over this... but Israel is looking for any excuse to go to war with Iran... this could be dissinfo which coming from establishment controlled MSNBC it is certainly possible

if iserail nukes Iran then Russia, Pakistan or China might nuke both iserail and the USA because they all know the subs and nukes realy came from the USA.

seems like no one in the west has the balls to stand up to Iserail dispite most the population wanting the ilegal gaza blocade to be lifted and remember it is the zionists that are acting like thugs and threating to nuke everyone so american needs to remove the nukes they gave to the facists or risk the posssible results.

Our banking system will become more and more turbulent in the coming weeks as reward/punishment for how we please our zionist world bankers so watchout for any fat finger incidents that no one will be able to trace like last month or short placed on airlines that they can not trace some nine year after 9/11.

We could also get another US Liberty incident

The USS Liberty incident was an attack on a United States Navy technical research ship, USS Liberty, by Israeli Air Force jet fighter planes and motor torpedo boats, on June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War. The combined air and sea attack killed 34 crew members (naval officers, seamen, two Marines, and a civilian), wounded 171 crew members, and severely damaged the ship. At the time, the ship was in international waters north of the Sinai Peninsula, about 25.5 nmi (29.3 mi; 47.2 km) northwest from the Egyptian city of Arish.[1]

Accordingly, there is every reason to believe that that the USS Liberty was identified, or at least her nationality determined, by Israeli aircraft approximately one hour before the attack. … The subsequent attack by the torpedo boats, substantially after the vessel was or should have been identified by Israeli military forces, manifests the same reckless disregard for human life.”[33]

False Flag is the flag of iserail

90 US hydrogen bombs stationed in Turkey
250 Soviet Ukrainian warheads transferred to Iran (100 kt each, don't know if thermonuclear)

if that is not enough, consider the "Anglo-saxon mission" that the great powers will allow a limited exchange of nuclear strikes, before...their satanic plans fully develop. Perhaps never. But the start is clear. Israel has its own 400 warheads with thermonuclear among them. To be realistic, they are too dangerous to be left in Israel in any WW3 scenario. The best Israel could do, is to denuclearize itself as soon as possible and enter the system of international treaties, to be protected by them. Or no one will protect it this time.

Hope there are plenty of life preservers on the Iran ships.

Israel is God's chosen and they are not going to lose that property ever again. Contrary to all of the haters of Israel.

May the Lord Jesus bless every one in Israel with perfect aim.

They can escort but the question is up to what point? At 22km they would be in violation of territorial waters most likely and Israel could do what they want then.

So Israel just needs to let them come a little closer than before... BTW what is Iran’s Navy? All I ever see is speed boats with RPGs.

The Hamas had built its strength through its various acts of sabotage of the peace process, in a way which was compatible with the interests of the Israeli government. In turn, the latter sought in a number of ways, to prevent the application of the Oslo accords. In other words, Hamas was fulfilling the functions for which it was originally created: to prevent the creation of a Palestinian State. And in this regard, Hamas and Ariel Sharon, see eye to eye; they are exactly on the same wave length.
Ron Paul sais Israel created Hamas

"It isn’t the kind of history Israelis like to talk about, or admit, but it’s also undeniable: Hamas is at least partly an intentional creation of Israel that dates back to the 1970s. "
The Israeli Mossad (their CIA) created Hamas in 1987, with the frontmen Sheikh Ahmed Ismail Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi, because, as Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, says: “Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO).”

Does Israel get royalties on all nukes since the Jews invented them?
