Russia does not have a nuclear defence pact with Iran.
Attack Iran and you attack Russia
The barely reported highlight of Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Tehran for the Caspian Sea summit last week was a key face-to-face meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
A high-level diplomatic source in Tehran tells Asia Times Online that essentially Putin and the Supreme Leader have agreed on a plan to nullify the George W Bush administration's relentless drive towards launching a preemptive attack, perhaps a tactical nuclear strike, against Iran. An American attack on Iran will be viewed by Moscow as an attack on Russia.

Any way, only from south of the US boarder would this be possible, if it were possible, which it is not. Ships that are not chartered would definitely send a red flag before it even made is halfway past the Atlantic.
To cross the sea you need a ship large enough to feed yourself and have enough fuel. You need a crew and most of all you need port authority enter US water space. a none response would be tracked and interrogated, failure to comply would result in a sunk ship many. many miles from any shore.
not going to happen sorry.

I am not suggesting mass destruction. If you clicked on the first link I provided it describes the scenerio of what a blackout could accomplish. I don't see that as starting any free for all. With this type of EMP attack we would instantly be in the dark ages and utter chaos. There would be no retaliation.

Here's the kicker - there are certain natural events that can give the same results as an electro magnetic pulse! events from out in the cosmos that, well travelling at the would give us no warning! and well, if this hypothetical celestial event lasts for only a few seconds, only part or half of the globe will be affected... Seriously changing the current power balance.... Of course if it lasted up to 24 hours then the whole world would be back to the industrial revolution era or earlier.

Could it be another deal has been struck with the UK, Gordon Brown anounced as recently as Sunday or Monday evening that "We know that Osama Bin Laden is in Pakistan", could this not be the reason that the US has suddenly decided to increase the number of troops in Pakistan or as you so rightly ask "When the hell did we also declare war in Pakistan?????"

Since 9/11, i tend to look between the lines on these things, and what is going on in the background that this type of thing is covering up, keeping peoples attention just where they want it, and away from the real story. So i for one will be looking at the small print so to speak.
