    It's not funny to see the lost of life anywhere, let it be in Iraq or in international waters. I still can't find where Israel has the legal right to board ships that aren't a threat (while in international waters) to the country's welfare or security. What they were carrying has been made public, check by the Turkey Government before leaving port, and yet this collection of ships is a threat? No, what Israel did was illegal period no matter how you spin it. If Israel just had waited until they had cross into their territorial waters (which is by legal terms of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, 12 miles) then no one would be making a fuss as then they would have broken the legal or illegal blockade. Sorry to say Mark, looks like Israel is going to be on the hook for this and those who gave the order to "attack" those boats. Btw, not everything can be believed by either the Government, Media or those on the boats....Or Fox News
