U.S. Navy: Arabian Gulf

Official style guide instructs editors to stop using Persian Gulf

AG writes: Please publish this information and keep it on your first page. I have found an official document from the U.S. Navy, instructing its members to use the name "Arabian Gulf" instead of Persian Gulf. Please spread this, do not let the U.S. get away with this, we owe this to our children >>>



US Navy style for sale!

by abgosht on

Looks like US Navy style guide is based on the highest bidder.  When Shah was spending billions on the US arms it was Persian Gulf.  Now that Saudi and Gulf Shiekdoms are buying the arms it is Arabian gulf.

Tell Secretary Clinton that the Persian Gulf is not the “Arabian Gulf.”

The question is why are we complaining and yet we are getting screwed in Iran by arabs and stopping and destroying every thing that makes us persian, first and most important thing is for us clean up our home first and rest will be taken care of. we can not complain for what others do because we have no power and in order to get respected in world first we have to respect ourself first, if we don't respect one another or ourself we can not expect others to respect us and that is first rule of getting respected.

If we have the most anti-Iran and Iranian regime and they are insulting every thing that we chrish, our culture and history and if the society is in coma from last 32 year and don't care how they are treated and live for today and screw tomorrow and  if this is their mentality, we shouldn't expect much from others, because american or others after one thing and that is their national interest and might that is strange for Iranian, because from last 32 years never seen or heard one person to come up for defending our national interest and they have heard is what the hell, GOD and other crap from ALI, MOHAMAD, VALLY , DALI are done or wants you to do.

work one more time. This *is* a matter of an incompetent persident. With an idiot secretary of state. Time for NIAC to get to work.

I am sure that the dear Arabs will pay Obama well for this. Remember WTC; that is the thanks USA got last time. The one Middle East nation whose people sympathized with USA was Iran. Now Obama thanks us like this. I voted for the SOB and will NOT next time.

He can take Billary and both go to ****.

Inexperienced persident and bad advisors. Lead to this nonsense. Islamist Republic will not be here forever but Iran will be around. With a population which shall remember this. It will take a lot of work to undo this damage by American Idiot.



Common Guys -

by masoudA on

Let's at least learn something to improve ourselves.

George Bush called Iranians a cultured nation with a glorious past and hostages of their government and what did we do?  we ridiculed him - and voted for Obama.   The same Obama then turned around and gave teh credit of everything Iranian to Islam and Arabs....... what did we do? Nothing.   Things will not get any better for Iran or America as long as the implant Obama is in office.

az ma goftan..,...


PS - don't fall into the trap of red vs. blue - democrat vs. republican wars.   It is not a matter of red or blue it is who allows himself to be lobbied or who foreign interests can plant into Washington.  

How many of you Iranian/Americans are mebers of Tea Party movement - a movement that is aimed to rid America of foreign influence?   And how many of you ridicule it and call them racist and freaks - without even knowing why?    Our fathers followed BBC without using their own judgement - we follow CNN and our youth follow Comedy Channel all leading to the same..... once again falling into yet another self stabbing stampede.....and left wondering why things get worst!!!!


nothing new


I see that "democracy central" is selling its principle to the highest arab bidder. move along, nothing new to see here.


This is a travesty and I

by Simorgh5555 on

This is a travesty and I condemn the US Navy Guide but the blame for all of this falls squarely on the shoulders of Ahmadinejad. The reaction of the Americans is clearly in response to Ahmadinejad's provocative statements such as the 9/11 inside job conspiracy theory, casting doubt on the Holocaust and the ghastly Holocaust conference which took place in Tehran. The Persian Gulf is now being used as a political football and this is ilsulting to all Iranians. However, the sooner Iranians get rid of this terrorist regime the better.

Death to the Islamic Republic. Free Iran. 


come on guys, it's really BP or Shell gulf!

US navy is there to police the ownership.

The Gulf of Mexico borders more of the US coastline than Mexico, if I am not mistaken. And more Americans live on the coast bordering the Gulf. However the name is still Gulf of Mexico and I havent heard of any Americans opposed to it.

We got read of Pahlavis (iranian) and put Mullahs (Iraghs) in power. We shouldn't be surprise when they start talking about changing name of Iran to something Arabic....

 Alighran, or even Iraq

It doesn't feel or sound good.


Why not?

by MRX1 on

I haven't seen or heard anything persian or Iranian comming out of Omatestan  for the past thirty odd years have you? we can even go further than that but let's just leave it there......

Let's be honest amongst ourself. A nation that names their sons and daughters arabic names, takes pride in celeberating heros and icons of  it's colonizers, has no sense of pride in it's own customs, culture and language and frankly it's more Arab than the rest of it's neighbours. (I dare you Show me one country in the whole region that has more emamzadeh than omatestan)Let's not forget that the people in charge were the ones that came out with the name "islamic gulf" as early a s1979.

So khaneh az pay bast viran ast. Till the resident of omatestan figure out what and who they are, till  then what you see is what you get.


I Know,I got the Email

But honestly,one of the thoughts I had is just how many 'Persian's are in the 'Persian gulf'? It seems there are Arab's on both sides of it..
