If the ships make the passage, it would mark the first time in three decades that Iranian military ships have traveled the canal that links the Red Sea to the Mediterranean. Israel has made clear it views the passage as a provocation.

We have CSG's Carrier Strike Groups both ways. One in the Med and two in the Arabian Sea.
If they did anything funny they would never see the Persian Gulf again.

Is that what you beilieve. In all seriousness I doubt you really believe that.
Noone wants to steal anyones land.
Except they do, and have been doing for some 60 years. I know when ever they launch an attack on isreal they go in and clean house and take over the area so they cannot launch more attacks whats wrong with that. Stop lobbing Katusha's at me and I'll stopp coming in and kicking your ass.
This land belongs to nobody. All the land on this planet belongs to none.
This much we can agree on.
Who gives us the right to claim anything.
Well, if you're an Israeli, apparently some invisible man in the sky, but there you go. What ever...
That is like when the goverment says that you cannot fish in the free ocean unless you buy a license. Oh really.
And if you are unlucky enough to be a Gazan fisherman, well the Israelis just shoot you, license or no license.
Well stop smuggling arms in the boats then they will stop shooting at them. If they were honest fisherman they would not get attacked.
Not for nothing the isreali's are not stupid. And if they were senslessly killing innocent people it would be plastered and proved on the news. They try to make like they kill innocent but they dont. now don't show me a video of a poor innocent palistinian girl who is sent in by hizbolla to probe an isreali check point because We all know their mode of operation.
What god are you and who says you have the right to control the ocean.
Noone owns it they just inhabit it.
Unless you are Israel, then everything you have, or take from others, is yours by right. Listen the isreali's want peace. They are sick of being attacked by everybody on all fronts.
Now if you inhabit an area and someone else wants it then well tough for you.
Unless you are Israel, in which case it is the international communities responsibility to protect your right to steal land from others. Apparently.
What do you have to say about somalia, nigeria, sudan or any other of those countries. I dont hear you crying out about the ethnic cleansing of christians. There homes taken from them by the hands of machetty weilding thugs.
This thread isn't about them. I'm not sure if you're trying to use that as some sort of justification or it's just a feeble attempt at deflection.
Isreal wants to grow like any other country. They want to beautify the area by building new homes in areas that look like nothing. What is wrong with that.
At what expense?
Iran wants to kill every isreali.
That is a fact.
Is it? YES it is. Shall I dig some political fodder up.
They want them dead because they think they are evil.
The state of Israel is evil, you don't have to be Iranian to see that for what it is.

Well how about China come and park some nuke tipped sub launched missle off the coast of california and the coast of massachuesettes.
That is what Iran is doing right now. I guess it would be more like if Iraq parked a ship off our coast with nuke weapons on it.

I don't really understand why Israel feels it can dictate where ships can travel if it's not in their waters. Why is the world allowing Israel to bully other nations?

The only reason that Iranian warships can go now is that Mubarak was Netanhyus lover and so was king abudllah, they are all friends of Israel, and now Mubarak is gone. Iran can run its business as it pleases for all i care.
Why do we need to be concerned what some 3rd world country like Iran and Israel are doing when we have bigger problems at home. I will be concerned about them when I see an Iranian warship close to Norfolk port. Then you can act concerned.
