A US aircraft carrier currently deployed in the Middle East should "not return" to its base in the Gulf, the head of Iran's armed forces declared today, adding ominously there would be no repeat warning.


I thought this might be worth a mention.

I'm guessing things are starting to heat up, and would be surprised if these remarks do not increase over the coming days/weeks. Especially if the threat that the EU is planning to put an embargo on Iranian Oil continues.

www.businessweek.com...

The EU as I understand it makes up some 16% of all Iranian oil exports, adding that to the US sanctions is going to hurt Iran a lot.. Tho in my opinion it'd be a shot in the foot since that oil goes to Italy, Spain and Greece and that'll only hurt their economies further.

I guess we'll see where this is heading soon enough as the EU is voting on this sometime this month.

France calls for embargo on Iranian oil

France has urged its European partners to follow the US lead and impose an embargo on Iranian oil exports and freeze Iranian central bank assets, as tension with Tehran escalates.

Wow talk about light reading. After reading your link I looked a few other articles on the site since I hadn't heard of it before. When a wall of text is made bigger by putting a large advertisement within it, I click the X in the _

This site is either geared toward slow readers or casual browsers.

I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna get my "world affairs" news from it. They post provocative stories filled with ads for revenue.

If you work for them, bravo!

LOL, their missile tech is so 1960s. I hope they don't get too encouraged. The Germans were developing anti-radiation missiles in the 1940s, the U.S. used them to good effect in Viet Nam. Iran has a fifth rate military that is only capable of harassing its own citizenry.

What's ironic is the fact that you even used the source that you did for your OP.

Wherever you read this, it must be from the 1960s. Because Iran got some new toys from russia lately and they already tested their 200km range missiles. Also, Radar was invented decades ago and you still use it today

Really? Radar was invented by the British in the 1930s, you must be joking. The home-brewed,unlike the British Still-brewed Chieftain,technology is tragically old school. They are still trying to get nukes now in the 21st Century. The real world powers had them six decades ago.
