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.

Actually it's been updated to Tuesday (tomorrow).
Yahoo News - Iranian warships to begin Suez passage Tuesday

This really concerns me.

According to the article:



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.


No Iranian warships have been allowed passage in over 30 years by the Egyptian gov't. This really is a big deal. Anything can happen....stay tuned.

So... if they information is right, the Iranian ships are to enter the Suez Canal in the next 10 minutes or so.

We shall see in the next 12 hours as they reach the other side.

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.

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?

Nothing is going to happen. This isn't the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Navy set loose on the high seas! The Iranians are unlikely to use this as anything but a goodwill and training visit to Syria.

While I agree Israel Have no right to dictate who travels through the Suez Canal,as have bo other country, as NATO Naval vessels and Oil tankers pass through it all the time, Iran are hardly innocent victims, they supply terrorist with weapons and are trying to deliberately provoke Israel into war with them, so it's no wonder Israel are concerned, but both countries governments are as bad as each other and need to grow up. :-)

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.
:

Oh really they are as evil as your statement. Prove it.


I have met many isreali's have you. They are very loving and caring and simpathic to the palastinians.

Iranian ships are boxed in and I hop the CSG moves in to inspect the cargo. If they don't it is becasue Obama is a day late and a dollar short.

I wonder if he rode the short bus and sat at the back licking windows.

BARAK stop licking the windows. Ok mommy..


A real man would have followed the Un resolutions and requested tyhe cargo be inspected down to the last pallet and container.

This is a plain and simple put up or shut up.

And of course the iranian will we because we the us gov are all wussies. I no the soldiers are ready it is the command which is weak.

Sorry guys no offense as I know you are high speed low drag it is the tool at the helm.

Stay alert stay alive.

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.

Or if they came down the St. Lawrence river (with the permission of Canadian gov't) in order to then go and dock their ships at a Canadian port in Lake Ontario.

How do you think the US would react to that?

Very similar scenario.

What some may not realize is how close the Suez is to Israel.

For the record, I'm neither pro or con Israel, but I do understand why this would make the Israeli gov't very agitated. Warships from a country that has called for their annihilation are now going to be coming very, very close to them...

Because the rest of the world have gone soft. Most countries talk and wave around sheets of paper, whilst Israel waves around a loaded pistol and most of the time it's fired without question.

Then everybody gets angry at Israel's actions and threatens to take legal action, yet nothing gets done. Sadly.

Yes you are correct. Same same.

I would be pissed off especially since you know that the boats are loaded with arms.

Comments like yours are the reason so many people come to hate Americans when you make stupid statement like calling countries 3rd World! Obviously you have never travelled outside your own borders (like most of your countrymen/women) and have no idea what you are talking about! Israel third world, yeah right!

You state this issue doesn't bother you so why are you commenting?

What the planet needs now is for world leaders to stop showing aggression and trying to show who's got the biggest stick or dick and think about what they can do to lead to a peaceful resolution.

The israeli and Palestinian leaderships need to stand up and represent their people, negotiate peace and stop all the petty squabling. Give the Palestinians the full West Bank and Gaza areas in exchange for peace. Use the funds sent from various sources to build Palestine as a country with infrastructure projects and businesses, create jobs and give the people more to think about than rock throwing and rocket launching. We need to stop the hate on both sides and then the Iranians, Syrians or anyone will have no excuse to taunt or threaten Israel (hopefully).

Barak when he was PM offered Arafat a return to the 67 borders and half of Jerusalem in return for peace and Arafat rejected the peace deal because he was making so much money out of the situation. Why did he reject it if its everything they wanted then and now?????
