A shot across Iran’s bow
April 25, 2008 by E. Cartman
At least one shot has been fired at an Iranian vessel from a ship contracted by the U.S Military Sealift Command, Reuters reported April 25, citing a U.S. military official. No other details were immediately available.
Additionally, Debkafile (yes yes, I know) reports that Hamas’s number two has been killed in Damascus by a hit and run. The Saudis seem to be the ones with the most ins into Syria, in which case this would show them doing their fair share of the heavy lifting.
These “confrontations,” by the way, happen a lot. What’s revealing is which ones get played up, and why.
