COMMENTARY:

While the U.S. Navy’s encounter with 5 small Iranian boats in the Strait of Hormuz on January 6 resulted in widespread media coverage and aggressive posturing from the Bush administration, a much more serious naval encounter in November in the Taiwan Strait passed unremarked, both by the administration and by the press. ….

…. The same can not be said of the five tiny Iranian boats that harassed three U.S. warships in the Strait of Hormuz. Yet that encounter was portrayed as a significant international incident by the Bush administration and the press, when, by contrast, the much more serious incident in the Taiwan Strait was ignored completely.      http://jbs.org/node/6859
