UPDATE #3: An earthquake measuring 5.9 on the Richter scale shook the entrance of the Suez canal 3 A.M. Monday morning for 27 minutes. This speaks volumes.
UPDATE #2: It is now being reported that the 2 ships have not passed through the Suez due to a growing fleet of U.S. warships. There is a bit of a standstill and the next scheduled crossing is for Tuesday night 2/22/11. Interesting date.
UPDATE: The 2 ships have snuck through the Suez canal undercover of a sandstorm. One of the ships is reported to be carrying a cargo of missiles. I feel certain that either the United States or Israel will take action. Look out; sparks are flying near the powder keg.
Cairo and Tehran connived to slip the two Iranian warships through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sunday, Feb. 20, after a series of fake delaying tactics agreed between them to cover the flotilla's movements. Egypt's military rulers approved the passage of Iranian flotilla through the Suez Canal without inspecting their freights for banned cargo, taking advantage of the sandstorm over the region which obscured them from spy satellites and helped them to give monitors the slip.

Looks as if a showdown is looming; Egypt is allowing the two Iranian ships to pass through the Suez Canal.
CAIRO -- Egypt has agreed to allow two Iranian naval vessels to transit the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean, a military official said Friday, ending several days of confusion over their planned passage, which Israel's foreign minister has labeled a provocation. Source: Fox News
Israel said the other day that they would take action against such a move.
Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said in an e-mailed statement that "Israel is closely following the movements of the Iranian ships and has updated friendly states on the issue. Israel will continue to follow the ships movements."... A senior Israeli official tells the site that "Israel will know how to deal with it." Source: Fox News
I have no idea what this will lead to but there are many scenarios which I foresee. For one it could very easily escalate into an all out war between Israel and Iran and her neighbors. This could disrupt the supply of oil causing the price of oil and its derivatives to skyrocket which would send the world's economies over the edge resulting in hyperinflation virtually overnight. So this situation bears watching--I hope this does not happen.
Let's hope we can stop this from developing--like blocking the Iranian ships.
Not surprisingly, two US naval groups - an aircraft carrier and a big-deck amphibious warfare ship - are now situated at either end of the Red Sea, where the Iranian flotilla is supposedly located. Will the US presence be enough to prevent escalation? Source: Zero Hedge
Whether or not this is going to be the event that sends our economy over the edge I do not know. But I do believe that our economy will one day be destroyed so that we will readily join the New World Order--that is their plan. Are you prepared for such an event?
