An Offer The Iranians Can't Refuse
Iran is blaming America for 152 dead dolphins which washed up on their shore at the port of Jask in southern Iran. Photos of dead dolphins are splashed all over the Iranian media to the general public consternation. While more rational heads hold that the dolphins were killed by fishermen, the sane don't rule Iran. There are several theories.
Sha'aban-Ali Nezami, head of Iran's state-run fisheries organisation,
"As these dolphins are not among the species normally found in the surrounding Persian Gulf and Oman Sea, probably the Americans - for tracking purposes - have brought them to carry out laboratory works in the Gulf region. This group of dolphins have not been able to tolerate the tests. The likely reason for these deaths is water pollution, the spreading of electro-magnetic waves by military ships or a kind of virus disease."
However, autopsies on the dolpins ruled out anything but the Americans, just as the crazy Persians suspected.
If they had watched "The Godfather," they might have considered another possibility. These dead dolphins dropped at their door could be a Sicilian message from the US Navy: If you build a nuke, you'll be sleeping with the fishes.
