Compared to news coverage after the Global Patriot incident, there's dead silence about what happened with the Westward Venture near Iran, in the Persian Gulf.
That's just a comparison, of course: There actually is some news coverage. For example:
- "Naval Incident Raises U.S.-Iran Tensions"
Wall Street Journal (April 26, 2008)
- " U.S. cargo ship fires warning shots in Persian Gulf, Navy says"
CNN (April 25, 2008)
- "U.S. reports new Gulf confrontation, Iran denies"
Xinhua (www.chinaview.cn) (April 26, 2008)
I wrote about the Westward Venture incident yesterday: "Westward Venture: American Ship Fires on (Iranian?) Fast Boats" (April 25, 2008).
