Iranian warships in Mediterranean for first time since 1979

Officials said two Iranian warships crossed the Suez Canal and reached Syria. They said the Navy vessels — a frigate and support ship — would participate in an exercise with Syria.

"This is a very important achievement," an official said.

The two Iranian Navy vessels, identified as Alvand and Khark — arrived in the Syrian port of Latakia on Feb. 24. Latakia also contains the Russian Navy, which has sought to expand the port for larger vessels.

So much for Egypt's "democratic revolution" leading to peace and stability in the region, or the overthrow of Iran's theocratic tyrants.

I hope those Mediterranean nations always urging Israeli "restraint" enjoy it when nuclear armed Iranian warships patrol the coasts of Spain and France and Italy and Greece.
