Iranian Marines Set To Escort Flotilla 'To Teach Israel Lessons'
IsraelNationalNews ^ | June 13, 2010 | By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

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."

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.

Question: Are the Israelis willing to sink one of these “relief vessels”?

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 ........

Ditto. All these people here on FR laughing it up, imagining Israel teaching Iran a thing or two. But when the smoke clears, what will happen?

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?

****

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).

Thats the least he will do.

He will probably also reinburse Iran, and give some cash to hezbolla while he's at it.

What great time to send the IAF on a bombing run of QOM,Tehran, etc. Send a couple thousand of Amanutjobs best marines to Davey Jones Locker and turn Iran into a 8th world country. Whoops, I forgot they are already an 8th world country.

I have never seen a country paint a target on themselves and dare another country to blast the sh#t out of them so blatantly. Iran knows that Obastard isn’t going to do anything so it’s up to the Israelis.

“volunteer marines”????? ahem. That is simply a lie (think obmanation talk).

More like sucide terrorists: “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” (anxious to kill or be killed for allah) would be accepted.”

From the article....”Ahmadinejad reportedly told Turkish leaders in Istanbul last week that the vessels would be prepared for a direct clash with the Israeli Defense Forces”....

It surely appears Iran wants a war and their mouths are drueling for it......and to think the original Flotilla was a “peaceful” intent....yea right! Everyone on those ships should be held accountable for what ever transpires from the day they first sailed and ignored the blockade....this has been a deliberate provication from the get go.....and where is Obama????? Golfing or entertaining his latest party! The ME thugs are on the move now because they can .... with no fear of retaliation.

>>>> "There's going to be war. Count on it. The Kenyan wants it." <<<<

It certainly seems that they are trying to get a war off the ground in several parts of the world. I've felt that perhaps the reasoning behind this was to jumpstart the economy, and also to radically reduce youth unemployment by starting up a draft.

What say you?

With Obama as the “leader of the free world”, this could be a disaster.

It could be said that Obama politically supporting the Palestinians will lead to this disaster.

Obama is not only destroying the USA, he will destroy the free world.

I have thought and considered those, and they might be the reason.

I just don’t think we can discount the Leftist’s hate of Israel, and their conviction that if Israel didn’t exist, then all would be right in the Middle East.

Liberals are like the kid that starts a little fire in field for their own reason, not looking ahead beyond stage one (as Thomas Sowell puts it) and are surprised when the wind suddenly whips up and starts a conflagration.

They cannot think beyond stage one.

Don’t forget the ship that was intercepted a while back. The one that was headed to the Med loaded with radioactive sand which the Iranians were planning to explode off the coast of Israel. I can easily imagine Iran sending one to Gaza hoping that Israel will blow it up thereby creating a disaster.

Several days ago, Mark Beck had a very interesting program concerning the fractions of the Democrat Party. He illustrated it via showing the Arkansas Grifters (Clintons et. al.) vs. the Black Flag revolutionaries: Obama and his crowd. As the Black flag group is seeking total chaos vs. Clintons lust for money and power.

Remember the Sixties Radicals and their "Pull it down, pull it all down" chants? They were referring to democracy and capitalism.

Any guess who is winning?

Obama would love a war there and here.

Now what to watch for?

First look for who is moving money:

Some say the Vatican has the best intel system in the world, while others say the Mossad has them beat.

But in reality, the Asians (Chinese) have them all beat. Notice the Asians in Singapore started moving all of their gold to Canada in 1940, because they knew the UK's "Fortress in the Pacific" was a total crock and it would never hold against a Japanese assault. Heck even Churchill thought it would withstand the Nips.

Bottom Line: their are some real bad things on the Horizon.

Wheels are turning and I don't believe they can be stopped.
