Why somewhat disturbed Richard? - I didn't know that you were such a supporter of Gun-Boat Diplomacy. For British Navy Transport read Royal Fleet Auxilliary (totally unarmed). This is the Royal Navy's Merchant Navy, the people that keep the Fleet supplied, the Captain of the ship is primarily responsible under law for the safety of his ship and those onboard. Now apart from being somewhat disturbed Richard what would you have had the man do? He did in fact act prudently considering the situation.

"Frankly, any Israeli attack on such a vessel would have been an act of war by Israel against the UK." No it would not, The UK did not go to war with the Chinese when they fired upon HMS Amethyst, nor did they go to war when the Albanians attacked and sunk a couple of Minesweepers.

Draw attention to Kofi Annan's speach if you like - Now draw our attention to the last time anybody paid any attention to what Kofi Annan says.

"I would like to hear his impending discussion with Condi Rice (a traitor to her gender and race if ever there was one). My belief is that intellectually he can eat her for breakfast."

We are talking about the same chap here are we? Kofi Annan, the protector of Rwanda? The Ditherer of Kosovo? The saviour of Darfur? Believe all you want Richard, nothing will alter this man's track record, it is an appalling catalogue of evasion of responsibility, ineptitude and misjudgement.
