    I would like to see them try. They have the RIGHT to say what they want but sooner or later, it's what's LEFT of them... on a rubber dinghy.

    not everything needs to make complete sense
    I think what Iran are doing here is demonstrating a different level of threat

    when you think about it, all one needs is an internationally flagged container ship supposedly on legitimate business
    with something that goes bang inside it

    some intel on Iranian Naval resources

    [FONT=Calibri][SIZE=3][*******#000000]This is possibly a deliberate threat install a nuke on acargo ship, and float it into US waters. It represents the level of fantasy that exists now in Iran, Pakistan,and N. Korea, all of which are run by cabals who have little touch with thereality of modern military power.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT][SIZE=3][*******#000000][FONT=Calibri]Sadaam Hussain also exhibited this inability to evaluate consequences and a misjudgment of American character.
    [/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=3][*******#000000][FONT=Calibri]Two things are at work: a misunderstanding of Vietnam (still) and Iraq which these peoplebelieve was an indication of a lack of national ability to stick it out; a misunderstanding of the strike power of theUS military – which they judge by their own military standards. [/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3][*******#000000][FONT=Calibri]It also may be deliberate attempt to provoke a strike to try to rally Iranians to their illegitimate regime. In that case, it may actually work, by reminding the US policy makers ofthe potential for mischief that suicidal lunatic leaders can cause. [/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3][*******#000000][FONT=Calibri]The immediate threat to the US is posed by N. Korea andIran. But the longer term threat comes from Pakistan. The level of national fantasy and illusion that is daily presented in the Pakistan press, reflectingthe “vision” of the Pak military is astonishing. [/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE]

    Amazing how this thread got worked up by a propaganda piece meant for domestic consumption. You're not the intended audience. I bet the propaganda officer would get a nice pat in the back if they knew they had succesfully trolled this board .

    The problem comes when they begin to believe their own propaganda. That 's why it is important to monitor these fools.
