#1 So what, are the Iranians in a better position to intervene in the Libyan situation than we are right now?

#2 Intervene are you nuts?

Heaven forbid, let's stand around with our thumbs up our butts and continue to appear to be the world's biggest weenie instead of the worlds last super power.

I certainly hope someone with some brains has an attack sub following these guys around.

Is it time for a bad batch of humus to explode?

#3 Hopefully their fuel mileage won't be so hot, what with the drag of all those limpet mines.

#7 DAILY TIMES.PK > [Israel]IRAN SHIPS AUGUR NUCLEAR SPREAD.

ARTIC = transit of Iranian Navy warships thruough the Suez Canal is more a Warning to EUROPE + ENTIRE WORLD THAN ISRAEL THAT A NUCLEAR-ARMED IRAN IS COMING [matter of when Iran devs NucWeaps, NOT iff]. A NUC-ARMED IRAN by extension also strongly infers STRIFES AGZ BOTH IRAN-CONTROLLED, NUC-ARMED PROXIES [Hezbollah, States e.g. Lebanon?], as well as VARIOUS INDEPENDENT OR AUTONOMOUS REGIONAL TERROR GROUPS COOPERATING WID IRAN [Iran one of a few or many Nuclear-armed, anti-US-Israel-West Muslim State sponsors].

IIUC, IRAN-LED? ISLAMIST NUCLEAR PROLIFERATION + "JASMINE" COLOR REVOLUTIONS = instead of ONE "MODERATE" LIBYA, albeit still Autocratic, POST-JASMINE THE US-WORLD MAY END UP IN LT WID SEVERAL NUCLEAR-ARMED,ANTI-US-ISRAEL-WEST,ANTI-DEMOCRATIC RADICAL = RADIC ISLAMIST "POLICE" STATES.

* ION CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > IRAN BALLISTIC MISSLE SCORES DIRECT HIT ON TARGET SHIP.

versus

SAME [paraph]> ISRAEL REMINDS THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION'S GUARD OF ALLAH [Iran IRGC]. Successful Israeli ARROW-2 Missle test.

ARTIC = Israel may have to restructure + retrain the IDF to its pre-CAMP DAVID/TREATY organization because of the changes to EGYPT-ISRAELI = REGIONAL STRATEGIC BALANCE wrought by the "Jasmine" Protests in Egypt + ME Region, + resignation, departure of Anti-Iran Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. IDF WILL HAVE TO RE-TRAIN NEW UNITS TO WAGE EFFECTIVE WAR IN THE MOUNTAINOUS REGIONS ALONG THE ISRAELI-LEBANON BORDER, AS WELL AS THE FLAT DESERTS, CORRIDORS OF THE SINAI + TRANSJORDAN.

#8 IMO it will take Israel + its IDF a minima of FIVE YEARS [2015-2016] to rediscover + indoctrinate new Recruits, Units on how to wage successful Mountain + Desert Armored-Mechanized Warfare.

A lot can happen in this time period, espec in AFPAK [Pakistan]+ EAST ASIA REGIONS [DPRK, US-China].

E.g. as per ...

To wit,

* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > PAKISTAN'S INTELLIGENCE [Pak ISI Agency] READY TO SPLIT WID CIA, as per the RAYMOND DAVIS Case.

ARTIC = PAK GOVT. + ISI AGENCY fear the US CIA may have 00's [hundreds] of COVERT "CONTRACT SPIES" ILLEGALLY OPERATING INSIDE PAKISTAN.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > RAYMOND DAVIS IS THE "ACTING CIA OFFICER" IN PAKISTAN.

* TOPIX > RUSSIA: DAVIS CASE MAY SPARK US-PAKISTAN WAR.

* RENSE/TOPIX > [Chin Blogs]NEW CALLS FOR JASMINE RALLIES IN CHINA.
