Carronade The Yankee Sailor Carronade

The Sea is a choosy mistress. She takes the men that come to her and weighs them and measures them. The ones she adores, she keeps; the ones she hates, she destroys. The rest she casts back to land. I count myself among the adored, for I am Her willing Captive.

I've relocated to a new Yankee Sailor.

The Syria-Iran Partnership

EagleSpeak tipped this Sailor off to Syria-Iran cooperation in smuggling, but that's far from all they've been up to. In addition to cooperating on building the Iraqi insurgency, Iran has pledged in the past to aid Syria in dealing with "security threats", and there's been talk of a full-blown alliance. Most worrisome, is the belief by some of Syrian cooperation with Iran in developing nuclear weapons. Watch for Syria and Iran to be the two main funding sources of a Hamas led Palestinian Authority, too.
