If only Israel would transfer it's sink ships policy to dry land !
2. Way to go !
hertzel H'Tveriani ,   israel   (04.26.09)
Wayu to go Israel ! The only voice of sanity remains in this world outside the US. Please continue to teach this Ahmed in a jar one lesson after another.
3. Iranians reported its destination beforehand
observer   (04.26.09)
so what is the great fuss. In the world of smugglers, they deliberately let down one in every 100 or 1000.
4. Who cares who sunk it, just as long as it was destroyed!
5. Torpedo los!
Humphrey ,   Haifa, Israel   (04.26.09)
Well, maybe some of their Jihadist mates from Somalia perhaps? Would be an added bonus for them to get hold of arms... Although... It could have been Otto Kretschmer and U-99...
6. I Have Faith In Obama-No Way That It Was The US
David H ,   Marietta USA   (04.26.09)
He can't even handle the North Koreans, he is terrified of Venezuela and Nicaragua, he certainly wouldn't tackle those wily Iranians who might shoot back. Way to go, Israel!
7. they don't need proof, their minds are already made up
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (04.26.09)
who is dumber? those who say such stupid things or those who readily believe them?
8. The weapons blew up from poor handling, it was iran's fault.

9. More information needed...
Wanda ,   Montreal   (04.26.09)
There are many financial/proprietorial strata to owning a ship. This is because they are so big, operate around the world, and need secure funding. This means this: ownership of ship is different from ownership of cargo. The 'nationality' of the ship doesn't even matter... Eg. let's look at the Ukrainian ship laden with tanks and munitions that was held by the Somali pirates. It was registered in Belize, had prospective buyers in Kenya (some say Sudan), but the salesman was an Israeli. Whose problem is this? Whose deal? Which simple nationality can you attribute to this (probably illegal) arms sale... and then even blame the pirates for being naughty... So, let's get back to the claims found here: where's the INFORMATION?
10. How do we know it wasnt Pirates
11. Its gone! Who cares who sunk it! We'll get blamed anyway!
12. There was no ship.
leo ,   USA   (04.26.09)
It is Ahmadinejad's propaganda to keep Iranian people sufficiently prepared to battle Zionist entity while at the same time making an excuse to Hamas and Hezbollah for lock of divine help due to lock of righteous money. :)
13. Oh well hadn't decided yet...
Johnny ,   Stockholm Sweden   (04.26.09)
If we were to open a bottle of Champagne for dinner tonight. Well now it's settled. Way to go Israel!
14. What about the Debka report that Russians were tipped off
Marcella   (04.26.09)
about an imminent attack by Israel against the entire Iranian fighter bomber fleet? "Iranian and intelligence sources disclosed that Moscow warned Tehran Friday April 17 that Israel was planning to destroy all 140 fighter-bombers concentrated at the Mehr-Abad Air Force base for an air show over Tehran on Iran's Army Day the following day. The entire fleet was accordingly removed to remote bases and the display cancelled." Someone in Israel tipped off the Russians. Who? American spies in Israel? Russian spies? The plot is thick and getting thicker all the time.
15. Good.
Aaron ,   SF, USA   (04.26.09)
I'm not upset one bit except for MAYBE the possibility of innocents(who had no idea what was being shipped) being aboard and the pollution the sinking boat may cause. Other than that, good ridance!
16. CORRECT STRATEGY: Sink Iranian smugglers, Somali Pirates
meir elazar   (04.26.09)
Then go after Taliban directly in Pakistan and start a major cleanup of all the terrorists.
17. ok ok it was me.
vashDi ,   israel   (04.26.09)

22. To: No. 20
Sarah ,   New York City, USA   (04.26.09)
Excuse me. You haven't asked me if I care a fig for what the world may or may not think of Israel. What do you think of Iran? Sudan? The Congo? Sierra Leone? Afghanistan? Pakistan? Somalia? Nigeria? Right. You get the point. If you don't -- well -- can you spell "STUPID?"
23.  It is an alert, Israel has connection with alienate from sp
em.Jordan is Palest ,   s.f   (04.26.09)
Any were the Israeli enemies are located they will be targets and destroy by alienates space crafts, It was the most recent news from space news.
24. To: No. 9
Sarah ,   New York City, USA   (04.27.09)
Get the name of the vessel and look it up on the IMO website. Most cargo carriers are owned by single-purpose entities, so ownership won't tell you much. It certainly would not tell you about the cargo the vessel was carrying. However, if you really wanted to pursue the issue, get the name of the vessel. That will at least let you also find out the jurisdiction, the flag (probably one of the shipping-friendly jurisdictions such as Liberia, Cyprus, Panama or the Marshall Islands). Then -- if you are thus inclined -- you can start peeling back the layers of the onion. Good luck. You'll need it. Vessel ownership is pretty murky.
25. iranian ship

28. Oh Boy! That was Hamas Xmas presents
Zohan ,   Tel Aviv   (04.27.09)
The Iranian persistence in getting their deadly weapons into Gaza is proof that their nuke program is NOT for peaceful purposes.
29. now, you believe arab media
