Iranian Navy Ready to Inspect Foreign Vessels
22-Jun-2010 (5 comments)

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Army's Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced that the Navy is prepared to inspect the foreign vessels passing through Iran's territorial waters once required by the parliament.

"In case of approval by the Islamic Consultative Assembly, we will reciprocate any possible threat of inspection of Iranian cargo ships," Sayyari said in a meeting with parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Chairman Alaeddin Boroujerdi and Defense Commission members here on Monday.

The UN Security Council approved a sanctions resolution against Iran on June 9 which envisages inspection of Iranian vessels.

Also during the meeting, Boroujerdi reiterated that if any country embarks on inspecting Iranian vessels, the Navy will not allow its ships to pass through the country's territorial waters without inspection.

Yes, indeed the anti Iran cheerleaders like yourself and the mullahs you kiss up to would not only rather see Iran roll over and die, they are taking our country down that path very quickly. 

If only your allegiance was to Iran, you would stop supporting the fascists.   I am for a strong, independent Iran that uses its best and brightest minds to raise the level of our country and our people on all fronts.  Not for the bunch of apes and morons like AN who have destroyed any standing we had in the world, and speak large and carry a small stick.  He and his supporters (traitors like you) are the real anti Iran cheerleaders, and the biggest gift to Iran's enemies that they could have asked for.  You sell out your own people and advocate their rape and execution and torture and imprisonment for your own gain.

Maybe it is to much for your little head to handle, but do not confuse i.r. bashers with Iran bashers. We love Iran, but we hate everything that your kind loves about it :)

The anti-Iran cheerleaders would rather see Iran roll over and die; that's plain to see.

good luck to the rusty surplus fleet brought to you by a bunch of backward medieval mullahs.  I love how they have been saying for 31 years how "we will not accept foreign forces in the region" and cannot do a damn thing about it.  Or how they just gave up a huge chunk of our Caspian Sea without even protesting. Or have yet to even appear to rebuild Khorramhahr. 

This is the 21st century ghajars, giving up our national pride and sovereignity and leaving our country defenseless and in decline while the rest of the world takes huge advantage (and I mean huge)
