Peace and Friendship, Courtesy of the Iranian Navy

What’s up with the Iranian Navy these days?  Well, they’re off to the Red Sea, where they will “convey the message of peace and friendship to all countries,” according to Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari.  Since Iran is sending both a submarine and a surface warship, they will presumably be conveying this message to Atlantis as well.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Aquaman!

Also, they’re going to fight pirates, while “displaying Iran’s navy capabilities of the Islamic Republic,” as stated by the Iranian government’s official news agency and translated by Haaretz.  Well, hunting pirates is cool.  I hope they check for the Jolly Roger flying from the mizzenmast before they cut loose with any torpedoes from that submarine.

You know who else has a navy in the area right now?  Israel.  As a UPI report explains:

Iran’s announcement came shortly after Israel said Tuesday it was boosting its naval presence near the border with Egypt Tuesday, following reports Sinai terrorists plan attacks on Israel.

Due to the warnings based on concrete intelligence received by the security establishment, Israel also boosted its ground forces along the border with Egypt and Gaza.

Israel informed the Egyptian authorities of the move.

If there’s one thing the region needs right now, it’s more peace and friendship… especially the kind delivered by submarine.  Happy sails, everyone!
