Iran calling its warships' trip into the Mediterranean a message of "peace" is consistent with Iranian doublespeak. War is peace, a la Orwellian 1984. What about Ahmadinejad's numerous vows to wipe Israel off the map. Are they peaceful? How about his slaughter of innocent Iranian youthful protesters in Tehran. Iran seeks to re-establish a Persian empire with hegemony over the middle east. The provocative show of power with these two vessels is simply a symptom of that agenda.
