schwit1 (797399) writes "Pakistani's The News reports, an entire island emerged off the country's Gwadar coast in the aftermath of the quake. "According to DIG Gwadar Moazzam Jah, the island's altitude is 20 to 40 feet and width around 100 feet. Talking to Geo news, the DIG said that the island emerged at a distance of 350 feet in the sea from the Gwadar coast."

How long until US military claims this new rock as a new naval base which just happens to be in close proximity to Iran's eastern maritime border?"

I just downvoted your submission for that ignorant sentence. If it's within 12 miles of Gwadar (and 350 feet is quite a bit short of 12 miles) it belongs to Gwadar.

Remove the ignorant sentence and resubmit and I'll upvote it.
