    Iranian ships moved through the Suez Canal and into the Mediterranean Sea on Saturday, the IRNA news agency reported, citing the country's navy commander, Admiral Habibollah Sayari. Sayari said the passage through the Suez Canal was only the second made by Iranian ships since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

    It follows the passage of the Iranian frigate Alvand and the supply ship Kharg on Feb. 22 last year. The ships successfully moved through the canal and then docked two days later at the Syrian port of Latakia.

    Israel called last year's passage a political provocation" and put its own navy on alert in response.

    It was not known how many ships passed through the canal Saturday. However, Sayari said the ships were docked in the Saudi port city of Jeddah ahead of their passage through the canal, AFP reported.

    Two Iranian ships -- the destroyer Shahid Qandi and the Kharg -- were docked in Jeddah two days ago

    Well the U.S. and Israel have already set the War up to be perceived as a 'Self-Defense' action. And of course the corrupt MSM just plays along. In reality, it's actually Iran who is under threat of attack on a daily basis. They would be the ones acting in Self-Defense if there is War.

    All you fuckers trying to start a war with Iran need to shut your fucking mouths!

    You war-mongers can go to hell!

    Since Iran hasn't done anything wrong, attacking them would be illegal.

    I can see the Iranian ships sending rubber boats to harass US war ships 199.9 miles from the Jersey shore line. Or would the be 2.9 miles or 11.9 miles or 29.9 miles or 299.9 miles?
