#1 They really do believe what they say, don't they? Just not in my DNA to understand, how anyone can make such outrageous claims.... yes, there are cultural differences....

#2 IMO Iran is once again testing the Bammer now that he has been formally reelected in the US.

* TOPIX > [AlbaWaba News] WORLD OIL USERS WILL BE LEFT HIGH AND DRY IFF IRAN CLOSES STRAIT OF HORMUZ WATER PASSAGE.
ARTIC = ...
- Major land-based oil pipelines can carry or handle only 1/3 of the world's requirements.
- Oil prces will skyrocket in a time of poorly-perfroming International economies.
- Many of the VLCC Oil tankers that use the SoH end up in South + SE Asia - CHINA, INDIA, THAILAND, + INDONESIA ECONS TO BE HEAVILY AFFECTED.

HHHMMM, HHHMMM, ANOTHER "PEAK OIL/ENERGY" TEST FOR RISING CHINA + ITS "MANIFEST DESTINY".

#4 Look, I'd fired on it too, we're in combat here, don't be surprised if the other side fires back when you least expect it.

#5 They spent the entire Iraq War shooting at us while we didn't shoot back, Ship. I think Bush's unwillingness to tell the truth about the situation is a large part of why we're in the political mess we're in now.

#6 So who's in charge of the drones?
At CIA, a convert to Islam leads the terrorism hunt

#7 Well I guess they better try again. It doesn't look like they've got any Top Guns over in the Iranian Air Force. It asin't much of an attack when you can hit a slow-moving target.

My suggestion boyz is that you start renting some old Tom Cruise movies :-)

#8 and that sentence should have said ... when you CAN'T hit a slow-moving target.

#9 Maybe they are thinking that their territory extends as far as the old Persian empire did.

#10 time to double up on the drones, one unarmed, and one with heat-seekers. Splash their jets and say they shot each other down

#11 You're right Snowy, I didn't inspect that angle.
