Israel will have no real choice but to hold the line of the blockade—if they still want to be respected as a viable state and a formidable power in the region, that is.
Iran I think correctly interprets the American government as weak and ineffective at doing anything. The election has effectively neutered America. It seems to me that they are now rationally making their move.
Obama will now have to choose where his heart really lies—with the Islamist third world and the Muslim heritage from his father, or with the civilizational interests of America and the West. I have no idea what that choice is going to be. Perhaps Ahmadinejad knows something on the matter that we are not privy to.
i agree with your point that Iran correctly interprets the American government as weak right now. they possibly could be making a move feeling that the time is right.
you are right, Israel will have no choice but to hold the line of the blockade. Israel must feel very alone right now.
i believe i know where obama's heart really lies, but i think he will look at what benefits him
i also hope that there are no iran revolutionary guards on board the ships.
