A few weeks ago it was reported that an aid flotilla would be leaving from Iran shortly…. there were many conflicting reports about this.

I went searching to see what was going on… the best thing I could come up with was from a U S Naval Institute Blog….. it appears below.

If this was in fact fiction, it’s a damn mean thing to do to the people of Gaza. All they have at this point is hope, that is not an emotion to be toyed with.

Iran’s Fictional Flotilla

My jaw dropped when Iran boldly announced that it was sending a Red Crescent flotilla of its own to Gaza. This was going to be a high seas confrontation between Iran and Israel, two bitter enemies. However, the entire time I was thinking about the flotilla, a little voice in the back of my head kept saying: “This is Iran, the masters of inaction, beware”. But I did not listen. The Iranian flotilla was going to happen, and it was going to be a big freaking deal.

Now, it looks like I should have listened to that little voice. The Iranian Red Crescent quietly announced last week that two ships of the flotilla were being delayed due to lack of coordination and a change of cargo with “no definite” date of departure. The third ship of the flotilla seems to have to disappeared entirely, or at least is unworthy of mentioning. The real message is clear: the Iranian flotilla is not happening.

Lastly, there is one interesting sidebar to this story. On June 21st, media outlets reported a fleet of one Israeli and 11 American warships passing south through the Suez Canal. Later that day, Galrahn serendipitously discussed the phantom fleet reports and the power of fleets to change national behavior. Why serendipitously? Because Iran announced the delay of the Red Crescent flotilla on the same day as the phantom fleet’s Suez passage. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not.

    Indeed, when it was announced, Haitham and I wondered about it- I heard a radio show, that just would read off dispatches off the teletext, not great journalism, but good bits of info, where it was mentioned once, (and then never heard it again) that Hamas had already rejected the offer. Haitham went looking over internet, and did find the two sites that mentioned this information, one an Arab paper and another an intelligence round-up agency that obviously reads the Arab paper in question!
    He wrote about it and published it and we had no illusions that it would actually happen, but also noticed how for some reason the mass media didn’t want to show that Hamas rejected the offer for pragmatic reasons of not desiring more conflict at this time, when international interest was directed there and they would see some changes happening in the best of prospects.

    It is sad that our alternative media is slow on the upswing and we have to find out all our info from official US or intelligence sources! One then gets scared that they are false flags or something, but they are more times than not aware of what is going on.

    We need to catch up as alternative and free media.

    Why serendipitously I think it was wise move by Iran, remember the sanctions and inspection of ship and Iran’s pledge to retaliate if that happens? Anywhere, where are all the Islamic brothers or the Arab street?

    Since when any government will do something against Israel? Nobody does anything. Nobody cares. They are all hypocrites.

    The whole world sees what craven cowards the US harbors, especially in the Military: Bootlickers for Israel. In the name of God and those who died on the USS Liberty, the US Navy should be the ones escorting aid ships to Gaza.

    Most Arab Governments are obedient puppets of the US and UK and have to play their act well in order to keep the puppetmasters happy or face regime change. The Rothschilds and Rockefeller’s are not only in control of all the money in the world, but in control of War and Peace.

    Did you notice right after Iran pledged aid the UN passed sanctions making it LEGAL to board Iranians ships and inspect them, while simotanuously they sent 11 warships on towards Iran using the same route Iran was going ot use to Gaza. If I were Iran I would turn back to, and approach this a different way. Iran is restricted in many ways, the entire west and its puppets are descending on Iran.

    Iran stands in the way of complete ME control by US/Israel.

    Both hands in glove for complete control .. the oil then the world.

    That is naive actually. I would never happen because today no nation can control another anymore. Look at Alfganistan.. look how week the Talibans are and yet they guys are winning.

    Nato is losing the war in Alfganistan .. why? Today natives do not carry bows and arrows anymore.

    Iran in fact thanked US to convert Iran to Shiite country…. we win in the end?

    When war starts .. let’s see if Israel still exists and US still in ME.

    Get used to the idea , Israel was never the force she project herself to be. A mere paper tiger.
