I’m trying to understand why Iran is flexing her muscles, why the show of strength. First she heads to the Med via the Suez canal, now heading towards the red sea are Iranian submarines & warships !

The excuse/ reason is for ‘information gathering’.
What exactly does this mean ? Does Iran want to get involved in the Arab Spring ?
I’d say it’s a bit too overt for espionage.
Or could the truth be provocation, do they want trouble, are they trying to escalate things to war level , to fulfill the desire to wipe Israel off the face of the earth ?
Remember the rule in Islam to fight defensive wars only. [ so they constantly tell us]

“Iranian warships were escorting the submarines.
Report said the submarines reached the Gulf of Aden last month and are now entering the Red Sea in order to follow foreign ships and collect information about them”
