    Iran has warned that it could send Revolutionary Guard naval units to escort humanitarian aid convoys seeking to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza a move that would certainly be challenged by Israel.

    Any such Iranian involvement, raised today by an aide to the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, would constitute a serious escalation of already high tensions with Israel, which accuses Tehran of seeking to build a nuclear weapon and of backing Hamas, the Islamist movement that controls Gaza.



    This will not end well.

    They do want a war with Israel. Of course - the question is will egypt be stupid enough to grant Iranian military ships passage through the canal?
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    they don't have to win - they only have to cast the world into war to cause his return.

    Yes they do want a war with Israel, they long to wipe Israel off the map.

    Egypt most likely wont give passage. Egypt remembers that in 1987 Iran attacked Kuwaiti and Egyptian oil tankers in the Straight of Hormuz.

    That IS what they will get if they are allowed to do the escort. Part of me (a very small part) hopes that they do provoke one. Not that I want war, but that I think it is inevitable, and it is best that it occurs before they get a nuke. But then again, Obama will abandon Israel and it might not turn out well with him still as President.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    If they start one, it would be a good opportunity to take care of that "nuclear reactor".

    Part of me thinks that space shuttle replacement we sent up last month is packed with "Rods from God". It is just loitering up there until they are needed.
