Tempratures Rising in Middle East

From msbc

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday.

"Iran's Revolutionary Guards naval forces are fully prepared to escort the peace and freedom convoys to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities," Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.

Well, that will make things interesting won't it? Does Iran really believe that Israel will back down? Israel will sink their ships for the Iranians too ..... they have no air force to speak of.

Well, if Israel sinks their ships (which I agree that they probably will) I hope they also take out their nuclear facilities. I don't think Israel will go for any half measures again. It will be interesting to see if any Muslim nations in the region try to talk Iran's threat down. Because this could be the trigger to something no one really wants. What a mess.
