Iranians in the Med

Wow... I'm sure this would make an interesting variant for CoA's Persian Incursion game, but Iranian warships are loose in the Med after transiting the Suez Canal.

Two Iranian warships have sailed through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea, canal officials say.

Iranian officials have said the warships are heading to Syria for training, a mission Israel has described as a "provocation".

The ships exited the canal at 1330 GMT, a canal authority source told Reuters.

It is believed to be the first time since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution that Iranian warships have passed through the waterway.

This was cleared with the Egyptians after Mubarak fell.
