Tehran's Submarine Gambit: A Modernized Hunley?

Submarines ...always Silent, always Strange: From Tehran previously, intriguing news of Iran's latest craft called the Ghadir has been found over at Chapomatic's and Bubblehead's blogs. "Ali’s Ghadir," may be the stealth version of the small, kaiten-type, delivery submersible. Allegedly, fiberglass hull, sound-isolation padding and all-electric propulsion impart added stealth characteristics to this model. This design, and Iran’s fledgling “nuclear industry” are tokens in its competition to become Islam’s center of manufacturing excellence. Sold to terrorists and successful only once in damaging a supertanker, Ali's Ghadir could send global oil futures higher than anyone has yet dreamed and it would unite "dormant muslim radicals" behind the banner of world, Islamic hegemony. We are seeing the modern equivalent of the H. L. Hunley. Lets not forget the desperation behind such “fish-boats.” Iran is to Muslim states what Alabama was to Southern states. Any non-comabtant, like India's Seagall, for instance, could become a modern Housatonic for Iran.
