it's not hard to keep up to date with all the escalation happening in the East, even if the media isn't covering it, with the Internet.
if you do not know why this situation is getting hairy, here's a few points...
-The Senate is processing a resolution (#580) which calls for a number of sanctions on Iran and urges the president to blockade Iran for the purpose
of preventing that country from receiving any shipments of refined petroleum. Because of its limited refining capacity, Iran must import 40% of the
oil it consumes. The situation echoes memories of the U.S. blockade of Japan over 67 years ago which prevented that country from receiving the oil it
needed and which is now considered to have been a factor in Japan's decision to attack Pearl Harbor.
-49 Senators have signed on as co-sponsors of Resolution 580.
-The House of Representatives is processing a resolution (#362) similar to the Senate's, but one that also urges the president to set up a blockade
to inspect all people and items entering or leaving Iran and prohibiting Iranian officials from traveling outside the country except for the purpose
of nuclear negotiations. In a bulletin published last month, Ron Paul described it as a "virtual war resolution."
-261 Congressmen have signed on as co-sponsors of Resolution 362.
-Three weeks ago, major elements of the U.S. Navy and several other nations including the United Kingdom and France, concluded a naval exercise in the
Atlantic, called Brimstone, and described as a dress rehearsal for a blockade of Iran.
-Since then, the following naval assets have been reported to be heading for the Persian Gulf and the other waters abutting Iran:
-the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt, with French Naval Rafale fighter jets on board, and her battle group,
-the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and her battle group,
-the USS Iwo Jima, an amphibious assault ship,
-the United Kingdom's aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal and her battle group,
-and the French nuclear attack submarine Amethyste along with other French ships.
-This armada is joining up with the existing elements of the Fifth Fleet already in the Gulf and its vicinity, which include:
-the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and her battle group,
-the USS Peleliu and her battle group,
-at least one nuclear attack submarine and a variety of other U.S. ships.
-It has been widely reported in the foreign press that this is the largest naval buildup in the Gulf area since the inception of the war in Iraq.
-Russia recently conducted a naval exercise in the Mediterranean involving at least 11 warships, an unknown number of submarines, the aircraft carrier
Admiral Kuznetsoy and the heavy missile cruiser, Moskva, described as the flagship of its Black Sea Fleet. The exercise was conducted out of and
supplied by the Russian facilities at the Syrian port of Tartous.
Russia declares that if we aid georgia in war... then war is declared on the US..
with georgia's will to be part of NATO and western relations, it is only inevitable that we will help them...
inevitable that war will be declared!
anyways that was my common logic, i also suppose that ukraine could be next in the chain of events
TELL ME WHAT YOU T HINK!
but the MAIN reason of this post is to elaborate on the function as to WHY THE MEDIA HAS BEEN IGNORING ALL THIS!
could it be that bush is keeping it secret as possible until push comes to shove where he can present it on television finally with such new as to
scare americans so much they line up to give up the rest of their rights? planes flying into buildings is old news , now bush needs something
so, what is it!?
and if there isn't anything like that coming, why isn't the media adequately covering this HUGE NEWS!
