Clearly they're rattled by their failure.

    Presumably we'll be so stupid as to withdraw that protection, just because they'd prefer us to ? Can they REALLY be that stupid as to think we'll fall for that one ??

    A pathetic face-saving exercise on their part.

    I just find it funny that the best Iran has to offer is a tit-for-tat attempted boat grab, and they didn't even get that done

    Did they REALLY think the Brits would leave unprotected shipping where they themselves had just seized a vessel? You can't fix stupid

    Seems that way ...

    Stupidity, mixed in with sheer arrogance .. not a useful combination. Long may their arrogance prove to be their undoing.

    Default Since I, and my son have operated under U.N. phony leadership...

    The World needs to know. The U.N. is a Joke. Just consider how they decided to make IRAN a member of the HUMAN RELATIONS counsel to oversee, and prevent Everything IRAN is guilty of performing.



    For Bosnia????

    I may be older than most. I may say things not everybody will like.
    But despite all of that. I will never lower myself to the level of Liars, Haters, Cheats, and Hypocrites.
