Good News!! Iran Revolutionary Guards Ready To Escort Jihadi Flotilla's

Iran to the rescue, What could go wrong?

TEHRAN, June 6 (Reuters) - Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday.

"Iran's Revolutionary Guards naval forces are fully prepared to escort the peace and freedom convoys to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities," Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered, highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.[No sh*t Sherlock...ed]

The Guards, with their own navy, air force and command structure separate from the regular armed forces, are seen as fiercely loyal to the values of the Islamic Republic

Not good, not good at all, unless it's a threat, which they are very good at.

This isn't over yet, not by a long shot.
