Today, Iranian warships just reached the Mediterranean sea through the Suez canal! As they cruise, in our minds gallop fearful questions as for their intentions! Not mine. It is clear that Iran displays to the world its military confidence! Any thoughts?
I was just thinking about posting something about it.
I'm just after reading the headlines on the BBC news home page that Iran is planning to boost nuclear power, then further down (but still headlines)..
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-17083791 which is headlined "Iran warships enter Mediterranean via Suez Canal".
I'm a bit worried. I live next to the Meditteranean, though admittedly out of reach of their bombs or whatever they are planning.
"The mission conveyed "the might" of Iran to regional countries and Tehran's "message of peace and friendship".
Why would it be a threat? Do you really think that their intention s are to attack or to dissuade the Israelis and by association the U.S.?
Most of Southern Europe backs on to the Mediterranean Sea.
Israel is the least of my worries.
They are well able to defend themselves, but what about all those European countries that have recently been downgraded by the credit rating companies?
Do you think their austerity measures will have kept up their military?
Yes I am worried. I live in Spain, which is suffering an economic depression. Not unlike Italy, Greece, Portugal and many more.
I don't want to see warships from any nation out there on this inland sea.
The problem is between the Iranians and the U.S./Israel/Brits coalition! Why would they attack countries that are not involved? They don't want war!
Yes...I think this is self-defense too. And, while we sit and wait for "war"...
AmerIsrael has already attacked Iran's computer intelligence with the stutnex virus, and assasinated Iran's nuclear scientists...
How much more is Iran supposed to sit and take?
Anybody worried about war better speak to America and Israel. IMHO
and anybody clamoring for it better send their own kids!
We have to rely on their sanity/rationality, I guess.
What's all this nonsense about who Iran will attack?
When have Iran threatened to attack anyone? They haven't done so for over 300 years. The military aggressors in the Middle-East are the US and Israel. Who else has been attacking other countries or bombarding civilian populations?
The US caused over a million deaths in Iraq in the past 20 years, around 250,000 were children. That's genocide. Israel has slaughtered thousands of innocent Palestinians and Lebanese over the past few decades. 20,000 in Lebanon in 1982 and 1,400 in Gaza in 2008/9 (inc 300 children) for example
Plus the two most dangerous countries in the region already have nuclear weapons, namely Israel and Pakistan.
It's Iran that's under threat of attack.
As if it was not good form to defend yourself from possible attack. PFF
Are we seriously believing our government after Iraq? Are we really going to be fooled once again by blatant war propaganda?
I believe they are in the Mediterranean to support the Syrian government?
It is reassuring to see that we the people learnt from our history! Iraq was the pattern of a behavior to come. Senator Wayne Morse, when the U.S. was looking for a reason to be involved, said rightly : "...Its is up to the people to formulate foreign policy...", "...The president is the administrator of the people's foreign policy...". It is constitutional!

Are we on the brink of war with Iran?Romney takes a very hard line concerning Iran. Obama has been trying to make sanctions work, and has urged Israel to wait it out. However, looking at newspapers from Israel, they seem to think that Iran will be capable of producing enough uranium to...

Pear Harbor, the Tonkin gulf incident, the september 11th attack, this clash have the same common denominator, a U.S. attack leading to a "justified" international intervention to an invasion or war. Many of you will refute the theory but, unfortunately it passed the theory level to being...

In this propagandist campaign in the New York subway, is it Israel or America the client (the American Freedom Defense Initiative), the citizens should feel concerned? And why would this be? Who are the savage if not Israel? Who are the civilized man? Isn't it a colonialist language? Why would we...

Iran says it's a 'lie'. Hillary calls it a 'dangerous escalation'. Saudis say Iran 'must pay the price.'What's your opinion? What, if anything, should the U.S. do? Since it was the Saudi Ambassador that was targeted, should it be up to the Saudis to respond? What say you?

I know that everyone in the US is focused on the presidential elections and the hurricane, but there is a storm brewing in the Middle East that could potentially effect every nation on the planet. Wherever you live, what do people in your country say about the possibility of an Israeli or...

How serious and immediate is a nuclear threat from Iran? What should we do about it? Some of the same hawks who helped talk us into invading Iraq are coming out of the woodwork and saying that a nuclear Iran is intolerable and something must be done to prevent it from happening. A timely and...
