Posted on 02/23/2011 4:36:38 AM PST by Strategy
The two Iranian naval ships which crossed the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Tuesday morning are carrying "advanced Hezbollah weapons," Maariv Israeli paper reported on Wednesday, citing sources.
The sources told the paper, "Estimates indicate the two ships are carrying missiles of different range, rifles, ammunition, and night-vision gear... The voyage of the two ships is an Iranian attempt to go around the arms embargo on Hezbollah."
The paper also said that it is believed the voyage is an attempt on the part of the Iranians to "test the waters" with and gauge the responses of the Egyptian Supreme Military Council and its stance towards Tehran.

Then why is Israel not doing anything? We would do something if we had a President instead of a Pres__ent but unfortunately we’re kind of stuck for at least another two years.
No doubt that is part of Israel's present do nothing tactics.
If Israel has intel that shows those weapons are onboard and the Iranians try to unload them there is going to be a major confrontation! Biblical in scope I believe! Do these war ships have missle launch capabilities?
Sounds like a black ops, total deniability kind of thing is in order. I am sure Israel could come up with a team and a plan. Really, to let those ships through is pure national suicide.
We will never “vote” ourselves out of this mess......We will have to take our country back by force....
Throwing gasoline on the fire that is the ME; probably not a good idea right this moment. Being seen throwing gasoline on said fire: very bad idea. Especially if you’re Israel.
I think the last two election cycles justifys that statement
We will have to take our country back by force....
I’m afraid the mess we’re looking at has been planned for a long time and is being implemented! This is a war and the people cannot remain asleep forever. Sometime in the not to distant future someone will initiate violence that will cause the major S fan thing!
Two ships?? Whatever weaponry they carry, when the sh*t really hits the fan, can be neutralized in two seconds flat. So can Tehran and/or the whole Obama presence in the ME, and the Egyptian army and a good chunk of the population.
“...the voyage is an attempt on the part of the Iranians to “test the waters”...”
Push “O” to the wall, more like!!! There’s blood in the water and these Iranians know it.
More ‘hope and change’ for America.
Unfortunately, it is actually more danger, violence, oppression, destruction and death to the weak and vulnerable people everywhere who are used to the mediating influence of a strong US.
By now Os name ought to be anathema to our allies!
I have been thinking that Madison, WI might do that
“Black Ops” HELL!
Let them dock and begin unloading, sink the ship, bomb the dock.
does anyone think Rahm was elected ????
sub..torpedo...done...now, prove who launched the torpedoes...make all the accusations ya want, but show me the proof...
national suicide (by doing nothing, no matter the severity of the threat) = the course set by Bibi and Barach, with a sizable portion of the Israeli population in favor.
Everyone knows he was selected. It's the Chicago way.
One warship and one resupply ship is what I heard. Wouldn’t it be very interesting if the beat up old supply ship magically had a magnetic mine explode on its hull while passing close to Israel?
If anything happened to that ship obviously Israel will be blamed by the whole Muslim world no matter what the facts are. If they believe that Israel is putting spy gear on vultures how hard of a sell would a sunk ship be for them?
The big question is would Iran plant a bomb on the hull and lose a few martyrs to inflame everyone against Israel? (rhetorical question it seems)
Hurry up ! I’m not getting any younger !
