Iranian Naval ships enter Med

Iranian naval ships enter the Med via Suez « Laaska News

Two Iranian naval ships sailed through Egypt’s Suez Canal into the Mediterranean on Thursday, a source in the canal authority said Friday, Reuters reported.

The destroyer and a supply ship could be on their way to the Syrian coast, the source added.

Iran and Syria agreed to cooperate on naval training a year ago.
And????

The only thing in your post that sparked any interest was the question why you chose a link to a Somali focussed blog as your source when the information is all over the global media like a sore rash!

First Strike against the US, you heard it first here.

No wait, fresh intel. They are going to partner up with the Argies for a covert invasion of the FI. If only we could get Harriers in to the thread and we are on the Brucey Bonus Ball.

If only we hadn't got rid of the Harriers and Carriers, we would be laughing! Why did they have to go? Its REALLY dusty in here!

There you go... No charge.

How about this? Iran/ the U.S./ Argentina attack FI jointly. Hey, oil is oil, no matter where it is. Right?

All this Iranian sabre rattling is just to divert the attention. Also, the Iranians will get some covert support to run Iraq, since it's right next to them.

Yes, I am Tom Clancy, trying another angle.

I'm more concerned with a Afghan/Paki/Iranian allied attack on the Falklands. :wink:

Even if we had Ark Royal and the Harriers, who/where would we strike back?

Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan vow to jointly counter UK militarism in the Malvinas

I would have thought an Iranian/Pakistani/Afghan (do they have ships?) fleet on route to FI would be easily spotted and dealt with by a sub - unless they all claim to be boat people looking for a better life living off sheep and whale meat.
I'm sorry, but you seemed to have failed to read the ARRSE rules regarding 'Falkland Islands threads'.

Namely, it is to be assumed that all UK forces (Air, Land & Sea) on and around the Islands will fail to notice any advance and quickly succumb to any assault upon their position. Thus demanding a significant naval task force based around a couple of large strike carriers set sail from UK Home Waters to retake said last possessions. Any notion that the existing forces are more than adequate to see off any likely aggressor is to be scoffed at as it does not help the 'we need strike carriers' wail.

Quite impressd with the Iranians for keeping a couple of forty odd year old vosper products working. good advert for British ship building industry. Wait...ho cock.
