I thought it was pretty abrupt that the Gen. Mcchrystal was relieved of duty and Petraus was put in charge. He was fired over some comments in rolling stone magazine?. That seem strange. Had to be for some other reason. He was bush's guy during the iraq war, maybe Mcchrystal didn't think invading iran was a good idea. I think this is a bigger precursor to war than the ship movements or troop build up.
To effectively do anything you need the top guy on board.
"McChrystal was reportedly known for saying and thinking what other military leaders are afraid to, one of the reasons cited for his appointment to lead all forces in Afghanistan, a post he held from June 15, 2009, to June 23, 2010."
From what he has said before there is no way he would spread out the troops. He's the one how originally ask for the surge. He is also a special forces black op commander. He knows what will happen if we do this. Just a possibility any comments would be welcomed

News Article Snippet - "The Defense Ministry issued a statement saying the satellite was launched late Tuesday from the Palmachim air force base on Israel's coast south of Tel Aviv. An hour later, after the satellite completed its first circuit, the ministry said it had achieved its proper orbit, describing it as "a surveillance satellite with advanced technological capabilities.""
Even I was thinking about that possibility. Maybe McChrystal didn't agree to the new "agenda" of the White House and was thus let go .All the comments that appeared in the MSM could have been a staged event to cover up the real reason.

The rulers of the world believe Iran deserves to be invaded because they don't have a Rothschilds national bank, currency. Just like N. Korea, Sudan, Libya and Cuba.

Going to war for peace is like screwing for virginity... really it makes no sense.
But really, what can we expect from this corrupt political system that we live in?

This may be a silly question, but why does everyone think that if we attack Iran that there will be huge consequenses here in America? Will Iran send a missle at us? If so, doesn't that confirm the possibility of "bad intentions" with Irans nuke program?
I don't think it will be missiles. I think it will be biological weapons.
And if they're doing this after the USA attacked them. I can't see how it would prove bad intentions if they're just defending themselves from the USA.
Sometimes when you go around kicking over and invading small countries they might be able to attack you back. And given America has destroyed so many countries in the past few decades I think you've gotten off pretty lightly.
