Israeli's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman says that "Israel cannot ignore these provocations," according to

"Unfortunately, the international community is not ready to deal with Iran's repeated provocations," Lieberman said, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Lieberman added that the warships was "a provocation that proves Iran's nerve and self-esteem is growing from day to day."

Iran announced plans to deploy warships near Israel and dock at a Syrian port for a year, reports.

Perfect. I guess some things never change. Mega Ditto on the 'God bless y'all'. Return home safe and sound!

A friend gave me Lone Survivor by Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell which I just finished reading. I understand your W88s comment completely.

The ships will likely be trying to stay as close as possible to the 20km line, with Israel watching them the whole time. Someone else brought up the topic of ELINT as being part of the mission (would the Iranians be smart enough to even consider it?), so Israel needs to fight the temptation to “paint” the ships with targeting radars. Just make it clear they are being tracked by visual/IR/Low light.

I’m sure REagan was there to help them, unlike the bastard in the WH now. Israel would be stupid to tell the US anything

“The man who wanted to “exterminate’ 1.5 billion souls of the muslim world.”

Better we exterminate them before they exterminate us.

Read their Koran - they are serious about your being killed, enslaved, or your “submitting” to Islam.

Those who hold that Islam is its own death warrant agree with St. Ann, who said invade, convert, or kill them.

Well - Jesus said our enemies are of "our own household" - So check around your house - maybe even in the mirror.

Saint Ann sounds like Satan
