    So maybe a war is the only thing that will bring them down to earth, bear in mind Israel's stance on Civilians caught up in a war zone, respect, ( or lack of) for a white flag plus the use of banned weapons on the civillian population.. bring it on

    If Iran follows through, their timing couldn't be better, given the disarray our country is in economically, the oil spill, etc..

    Update:

    Israelis feel the ship carries weapons and suicide bombers. Also, they are not ruling out using overwhelming force in stopping the ship.

    This developing news got lost in the shuffle of the news of McChrystal and Oil rig moritorium news today.

    The ship is being sent by civilian charities. The government of Iran is not involved and has no interest in supplying any protection to the ship.

    TEHRAN, (PIC)-- The Iranian Red Crescent (IRC) plans to send 1100 tons of relief material to the Gaza Strip aboard a ship dubbed "A ship for Gaza children".

    Abdulraouf Zada, an IRC official, said on Tuesday that the ship would set sail next Sunday, adding that the shipload comprises medicine, foodstuff, clothes for children, and toy.

    Iranian, Jordanian sea and land aid convoys head to Gaza soon

    Oh, okay the IRC.
    Guess we'll just have to wait to TRC(To Really C) whats on this IRC sponsored ship when the Israelis intercept it.
    Thanx for the reply.
