More than twelve U.S. and Israeli warships, including an aircraft carrier, passed through the Suez Canal on Friday and are headed for the Red Sea. “According to eyewitnesses, the U.S. battleships were the largest to have crossed the Canal in many years,” reported the London-based newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi on Saturday.
Egyptians report the armada includes a U.S. aircraft carrier.

Also reported Egyptian opposition members criticized the government for cooperating with the U.S. and Israeli forces and allowing the passage of the ships through Egyptian territorial waters. The Red Sea is the most direct route to the Persian Gulf from the Mediterranean.

Retired Egyptian General Amin Radi, chairman of the national security affairs committee, told the paper that “the decision to declare war on Iran is not easy, and Israel, due to its wild nature, may start a war just to remain the sole nuclear power in the region,” according to Yedioth Internet, an Israeli news site.
The passage of a warship armada through the Suez Canal and headed for the Persian Gulf and Iran is apparently not deemed important enough to be reported by the corporate media in the United States.

The United States and Israel, the sole nuclear-armed power in the Middle East, have not ruled out a military strike to destroy Iran’s nuclear program.

A number of Israeli politicians and scholars have admitted Israel has used its nuclear weapons for “compellent purposes,” in short forcing others to accept Israeli political demands.

Also another Reports emerged from Scotland’s Sunday Herald that the US government has contracted with a Florida company to ship a massive amount of weaponry, including hundreds of bunker buster bombs, to Diego Garcia.
The island’s proximity to Iran suggests it may be used as a staging ground for US air strikes against the nation.

The proximity is not lost on Iran’s state media, which is reporting that the bunker-busters are a clear move to threaten Iran’s nuclear facilities. The US has repeatedly threatened to attack Iran over its civilian nuclear program.

The Sunday Herald report also cites numerous experts as saying that the lack of publicity for the move, just one of several examples of the Obama Administration adding major amounts of weaponry to the area around Iran, suggests they believe a confrontation is more likely. The Pentagon has thus far refused to comment.!!!!

Hello,

Do you have a link, or will this one work?...

www.microsofttranslator.com...

My link can't translate the 19th of June 2010.

Given that I can't trace the source of article, I speculate that this story is 8 days old, and appears to be propaganda.

That doesn't mean I'm putting it to rest. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Good looking-out OP.

Why is everything a false flag.

Maybe, just maybe, it is a real flag. Maybe just maybe something real is about to happen.


Not everything is, nor requires - a false flag. Not everything is a conspiracy. Sometimes, there are things you just don't know till they want you to know, as much as this may annoy you.

Well, if the US is going to do this I hope they have learned from the two "ongoing" wars. Strike fast, strike hard and strike repeatedly. Get in and get out. Let the Air Force make it a parking lot and send the Marines in to paint the lines.

Does there have to be a vote among politicians for a war to proceed?

A timescale perhaps?

We'll strike in the middle of the night (US time). That's the way it seems to go. Tomorrow, or Monday, we'll wake up to find ourselves at war with Iran. Always in the middle of the night people...

Hi again,

I want to believe this news is not propaganda.

The blog-spot link refers to an Arabic newspaper to which the story purported to being articulated, I can't seem to find related story. My link translates that newspaper. I'll re-check it though. The second link is dated: March 15, 2010

I hope this news is just simple propaganda, but looks really expensive and costly propaganda…

Well it's about time. We should have done this a long time ago. Iran has no one to blame for this except themselves. This is what Iran will get for sticking its nose in Israeli business.

I thought that the Mullah's were nuts when they announced that they were sending ships to break the Gaza blockade. They could care less about the people of Gaza. Why do Persians care about Arabs? They only want to provoke an Israeli response.

This is the perfect opportunity to bomb Irans nuclear facilities. This has been a long time comming. Let's hope Iran doesn't tuck tail and run.

Iran is a threat not only to Israel, it is a threat to the world. Nuclear Ayatollahs? Give me a break.

It's high time that we spank their little fly infested butts.

Really?

*bangs head on desk*

How about refusing to let the two IAEA inspectors in a week or two ago?

How about a real flag? How about they are building nukes, and just enriched another lot of 20% uranium? "about 37 pounds"...

news.yahoo.com...



Iran produced 17 kgs of further enriched uranium
AP

By ALI AKBAR DAREINI, Associated Press Writer Ali Akbar Dareini, Associated Press Writer – Wed Jun 23, 7:53 am ET
TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's nuclear chief said Wednesday his country has produced 17 kilograms of uranium enriched to 20 percent, defying U.N. demands to halt the controversial program.

The 20 percent level, needed to produce fuel for a medical research reactor, is far below the more than 90 percent required to build a nuclear weapon, but U.S. officials have expressed concern Iran may be moving closer to the ability to reach weapons-grade level.

The United States and its allies accuse Iran of seeking to acquire atomic weapons. Tehran denies the charge, saying its nuclear program is geared toward generating electricity.

Iran has been producing the 20 percent enriched material since February. The new figure of 17 kilograms — about 37 pounds — was announced by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi, who heads Iran's nuclear program.



The term "false flag" has become now, as useless as the term racist. It is overused when people cannot grasp a concept that events may take place they never have, nor may never hear about. Things happen all the time we never hear or know about.

Not everything is false, sometimes it is very, very real.

You know they want war.

War is the health of the State.

Politicians always want war.

Relax!

If a fist fight broke out every time two boys in a school yard got into a shoving match, there would not be a grown man alive with more than 3 teeth. If another World War broke out every time there were troop or ship movements, the planet would be nothing but rubble underneath several mushroom clouds.
