"The aircraft carrier Eisenhower, accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio, guided-missile destroyer USS Ramage, guided-missile destroyer USS Mason and the fast-attack submarine USS Newport News, is, as I write, making its way to the Straits of Hormuz off Iran. The ships will be in place to strike Iran by the end of the month. It may be a bluff. It may be a feint. It may be a simple show of American power. But I doubt it."
*Folks, This is exactly, and I mean exact, sort of lead up we saw before the invasion of Iraq. We are however missing the tanks and the abrams vehicles. So, What we will have is a strike on Iran, not an invasion. As if that is any better for the poor souls of Iran. Bush is a scary man, once I thought he was just foolish and silly. I am now afraid.
