Iran, Mind Your Own Business

Iran has just announced that it will send aid ships to try to break the blockade on Gaza. Moreover, “Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards were ready to provide a military escort to aid ships heading to Gaza if Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei so commands.”

I have defended Iran quite a bit lately (its right to enrich peacefully, not the fundamentalist regime), but it is belligerent actions like these that make me rethink my position. 

If the Iranian government is going to give its official stamp of approval to these aid ships by using the Revolutionary Guard to protect them, it should count on being attacked by Israel. This will certainly not end well. Such a confrontation could quite easily evolve into something much bigger: World War III perhaps?

Let’s hope not.
