Posted on 06/13/2010 5:47:23 AM PDT by Fennie
Two Iranian ships intended to head for Hamas-controlled Gaza are waiting for their government's approval to challenge Israel on the high seas, escorted by "volunteer marines" that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants to send "to teach Israelis a lesson."
An Iranian Red Crescent official said the two ships are waiting for the Iranian foreign ministry to give the green light for launching, according to the French news service AFP, quoting the Iranian Mehr news service. The Red Crescent said a third ship probably would join the fleet.
Red Crescent official Mojtaba Majd also claimed that more than 100,000 Iranians have signed up to board the ships, but only those with "expertise" would be accepted. Majd did not define the area of expertise required.
Ali Shirazi, the Revolutionary Guards's spokesman for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said it was "Iran's duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza."

I’ll bet if Israel did the same thing to Iran such as sending in pamphlets concerning Judaism, the boat would be sunk and the UN would not say a word, there be no investigation called for.
Too bad The One cannot setup his own blockade to prevent the Iranians getting close to Israel.
The Iranian regime is begging that Tehran be turned into a glass parking lot !
There’s going to be war. Count on it.
The Kenyan wants it.
why the iranian sailing delay?
This is going to be great!!!
Better than the U.N. sports spectacular down in S.A. right now...
Pop some popcorn kiddos, its showtime!!!
Be interesting to see or hear anything else on this again though...I bet we don’t...
Then send Imanutjob a map....of Disneyland.

You are exactly right, Mr. Ramsbotham. Weakness breeds aggression. We learned it in the thirties, and vowed never to forget.
And we have forgotten. At least the people have. And here we are.
Those in charge, well, always keep in mind their Alinksyite creedo: “No good crisis should go to waste...”
Even (or especially) those you create yourself.
This...is how wars start.
They are in for the surprise of their lives!
I am not a huge George W. Bush fan, but I'll say this much for him:
He was the last American President before we lost the country to the Communists.
Israel is on her own.
May luck favor those who go against her and do not come to her aid, because God sure won't. And by the sounds gurgling forth from DC, America's de facto Federal government is *not* standing up for Israel.
The Assahollah will be whimpering even louder as the flames of Hell bring him additional Iranian fools from their ‘Revolutionary Guards’... looks good on ‘em.

These aren't "releif vessels", they're now warships and that's a whole new ball game.
I predict a submarine will sink the invading horde with torpedoes ultimately determined to be of Burmese and Uruguayan origin.
No, I say Russian. Then Pootie-oot will have another problem on his hands.
The Indians produce a lot of Russian design arms so ........
What will Obama do? Nothing good.
How will Iran react? Nukes, perhaps? And maybe one sent our way for luck?
How will China, Europe, and all the little dung hill kingdoms with nukes react?
I still can’t get over Iranian “Marines”... I have mental picture of them prancing down the street waving yellow flags.
“What will Obama do? Nothing good. “
He will blame the U.S. for Israel’s self-defense capabilities and go on an apology tour through the Middle East (bowing to Mecca 5X daily).
What do you call a couple of Iranian Ships at the bottom of the sea?
A Good start.
He will probably also reinburse Iran, and give some cash to hezbolla while he's at it.
