Well as I mentioned on page 1, the Clintons own in Costa Rica. Unless they've recently sold that is...

If the Bush clan makes a move for Paraguay and Cheney leaves for

What's pretty interesting too is the activity surrounded all these leading nations in the Non-Aligned Movement (Venezuela, Cuba, et al) and how this might relate to the battlegroups in the Strait of Hormuz, which I'm sure you're all aware of, and off China (here).

ANYONE FOR MORE FIREWORKS. COASTA RICA IS BY VENEZUELLA. CHAVEZ TERRITORY. VENEZUELLA , south america, is striking distance for missles to hit the U.S.A. NOW WE ARE READY. What a cover, we are there to protect us from the drug cartels, HOGWASH. We are there to protect our oil fields and venezuella from launching missles in our direction towards the U.S.A. We now know who is on IRANS SIDE.

I agree.....

From my sources inside the military, U.S. forces are ramping up for something big. A NEW WAR. It doesnt matter what the story is, Terrorists, or Drug Cartels, they have to make up some story in order to get the support of the American people. Iran is in our cross hairs, I have many persian friends, and they are spending HUGE amounts of money to get all of their remaining family in Iran moved over here, because they know Iran is going to end up like their neighbors to the east.

The funny thing is, my persian friends all hope that we DO go to war with Iran, they have had enough of the fake democracy, lunacy from Ahmadinejad, and the rigged elections. Remember when everyone voted for Moussawi (spelling?) and he still lost the election, the people rioted for months...These are good people and they deserve more than that. Sadly, our leaders dont give a damn about the people of other countries, we just want their resources. But overthrowing a tyrant is a good PR campaign in Iran or Venezuela.

sure seems like were moving alot of assets away from the US. stories of states mobilizing their national guard units, the navy sending everything over seas.. its spooky.


Most of the ships are frigates and have a length of 135 meters, with capacity to carry two SH-60 helicopter
gunships or HH-60B, or Black Hawck and 200 marines and 15 officers each.

Other ships, including USS Making Island, have the capacity to carry 102 officers, 1449 sailors, are gunships, and can carry 42 CH-46 helicopters, five AV-8B Harrier aircraft and six helicopters Blackhawks.

Citizen Action (PAC), the Social Christian Unity Party (PUSC) and the Frente Amplio (FA) opposed on the grounds that the destructive force of ships, helicopters and marines is disproportionate to combat drug trafficking.

The deputy of the PUSC, Luis Fishman, said the magnitude of war violates the sovereignty of the country.

To whom it may concern, they are not going there to fight the war on drugs.
They are going there to destroy the CIA's competition. History repeats
itself, (mid-80's-Panama).

The Panama Canal is south of Costa Rica, my friend, and is now run by the Chinese.

I wonder if this buildup is in prep for a strike on Iran?

so much for escaping the usa in a tropical paradise
there's truly no place you can get away from these troops and psy-ops.
theres only one real road to move drugs on
wouldnt take much to make a choke point.
in say along the costa /panama border.
most of the columbian drug boats could be
handled by some pt boats.
but we know this isnt about drugs-
its about surrounding hugo-
who we have sufficiently demonized.
i'm sure he will have a suit case nuke any day now.
we'll have to invade and save der Homeland!
austerity = prosperity. !

Strange Eva Golinger a Venezuelian who calls her self an attorney but only sues the US government and files FOIA and writes about evil CIA and government is lying to you.

U.S. denies visa to prominent Colombian journalist

By The Associated Press
BOGOTA, Colombia — The U.S. government has denied a visa to a prominent Colombian journalist who specializes in conflict and human-rights reporting to attend a prestigious fellowship at Harvard University.

Hollman Morris, who produces an independent TV news program called “Contravia,” has been highly critical of ties between illegal far-right militias and allies of outgoing President Alvaro Uribe, Washington’s closest ally in Latin America.

The curator of the Nieman Foundation at Harvard, which has offered the mid-career fellowships since 1938, said July 8 that a consular official at the U.S. Embassy in Bogota told him Morris was ruled permanently ineligible for a visa under the “terrorist activities” section of the USA Patriot Act.

U.S. Embassy and State Department officials refused to confirm the visa denial, citing privacy laws.

So has the US started fighting against other goverments propaganda by going after there secret agents that promote propaganda on the internet. That is what many of the Russian spies just removed from the US were doing. Have these other countries started a destabilization of the US campaign that the US is trying to stop?

Nobody needs to be in the USA to use Internet for spreading propaganda.

Well it is possible that the movement is due to a plan which Clinton talked about a week ago in which he talks about blowing up the Macondo well.

About 2 1/2 minutes in he starts that talk.

They may be getting ready...
They can not do this with out a lot of planning.

Also, this:

Well, the BP spokesman last week did discuss two backup options they were discussing with the government that he couldn't talk about. Why couldn't he talk about it? Either because their only option is going to be a nuke or they have squat.

Isn't Alex over?

Yes Alex is over, but Hurricane season is just starting.
I personally see it as a contingency plan preparing for blowing up the well.

Just found this, very interesting...

Letter from BP Chief Managing Director Bob Dudley to National Incident Commander Admiral Thad Allen (Fri 07/09/10 06:49pm):

Charts and Diagrams included, August 14th is target date for DD III relief well.

Well, here's the news

Advances in fighting oil leak could come this weekend

The containment cap currently covering the gushing well "can be removed quite quickly" and BP will start replacing it with the "sealing cap" on Saturday, he said. Because crews need special tools to switch the cap, it could be three to four days before they're able to put the new cap on, Allen said.

They only mention military in this context:

In a separate advance, federal responders expressed optimism Friday about a new aerial weapon in their arsenal. A 178-foot U.S. Navy blimp, the MZ-3A, was flown from New Orleans to Mobile, Alabama, to be used to survey the disaster area as soon as Saturday, depending on the weather.

Officials said they hope surveys from the blimp will help them cut the time needed to get skimmers to the scene of oil slicks.

Tsunami? Deadly gas? Anyone?

i'll bet deadly gas

I'll bet "Nothing," just like every other thread like this turns out to be.

Here's a list of United States warships. Since none are named in this thread, and none of the classes of ships are mentioned, it's pretty much pointless to argue.

They might consider a Coast Guard cutter a "warship."

And 7,000 troops out of how many? Just a drop in the bucket. Ft. Hood alone has far more than that.

Another non-story, pumped up to look like something significant by people who enjoy being worried.

So there are/may be 46 ships/fishing boats, cannoes/ rubber dighys.....NOT 46 warships?.....Maybe the OP should have been clearer on his post and not so gung ho?

Maybe you should read the thread....

Since you didn't read the whole post - page 2 :

Most of the ships are frigates and have a length of 135 meters , with capacity to carry two SH -60 helicopter gunships or HH- 60B, or Black Hawck and 200 marines and 15 officers each.

Other ships , such as Making USS Island have the capacity to carry 102 officers, 1449 sailors , are armored , and can carry 42 CH -46 helicopters , five AV-8B Harrier aircraft and six helicopters Blackhawks .

They may also arrive at national waters catamaran ships , a hospital ship and reconnaissance vehicles with capacity for transportation both by sea and by land.

They may also enter national waters as the ships USS Freedom, With capacity to combat submarines.

How damn gullible does the US military think the world is?

Yeah, because we in the military obviously make the decision to move ourselves wherever we damn well please.

Grow up.

Focus on the politicians not us.

Also, we get ordered to move a smidgen of our military power down there and some of the stuff you guys are coming up with as to why really has me in tears. Really.

God I love this site.

Keep the conspiracy theories coming....

Guess the Mods removed my post..

I didn't mean it like that, bud,.. I got many friends in the Canadian Military, and 2 in the American... When I said US military, I meant in general like the OBama administration, Generals and the Pentagon, etc...

Sort of like when they say "Israel refuses to apologize", it's not as if everyone in Israel was for the attack on the flotilla. Mass media does this all the time.

[edit on 8-7-2010 by CanadianDream420]

Alright man - sorry if my reply to you was a bit rash then. lol

It's just those types are rampant here that would think that we do stuff of our own volition in terms of wars and things. Reeks of the immaturity of the American populace back during the Vietnam days when people place blame for wars and such on the military and not the people that sent the military.

Guess we're just easier targets.

That is the attitude that gives reason to logical intellectuals to despise militarism. The arrogance of the statement, "because we in the military obviously make the decision to move ourselves wherever we damn well please.", is exactly why we should not be allowed to go "wherever we damn well please." This is imperialism, or domination, without the logic or wisdom of judging other cultures on this Planet Earth without knowing the culture. How can you judge another culture without knowing all of the wisdom?

[edit on 9-7-2010 by problemsolvr]

Speaking of wisdom - did you ever learn of something called 'sarcasm'? The point I was making was exactly opposite of the argument you're making. We don't make the decision to go wherever we please. That decision rests in the hands of the government and elected officials. We just say roger and execute - unless the orders are illegal.

It'd be nice though.

I'd love sometimes just to go back to Texas for a couple of years because I damn well pleased.

Lets see if I understand this correctly: the Costa Rican national assembly has given the OK for the following US force to enter Costa Rican territory: 7,000 marines on 46 warships, including the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship the USS Makin Island.

The mission has to do with fighting drug traffickers as well as unspecified humanitarian goals.

The humanitarian use of a Harrier jet is still somewhat unclear to me....

well- the hookers and pickpockets will be glad to see them-
they can go to the new stadium the chinese built in exchange
for some offshore mineral rights oscar sold them.
i suppose they'll be around limon. where some cruise ships refused to dock-
rampant crack problem there. policing problems. once the arais brothers and a few
cabinet ministers got carjacked- they decided there was a drug problem.
on the pacific side they could police the chinese mafia/shark finners in puntaranas.
stop the pirates that have been killing fisherman and stealing their boat to run drugs.
now that theres more fancy billion dollar marinas the elite need to feel safe.
putin and the price of monaco- mel gibson-leo decaprio, they all frolick down there.
it would be bad press if those feathers were ruffled by some crazy ticos or columbians. anchors away! i still think there's other things afoot..

We just moved back to the US from Costa Rica in May. We lived in the mountains near Arenal volcano. When we moved there there was no visible military presence, but as time went on we started to see US military helicopters flying over our area. I am ex-Air Force and am very familiar with the planes the US Air Force uses and what they are used for...about six months into our stay in CR I started seeing AWACS aircraft flying over us heading towards the Pacific from the Caribbean side. At first it was just occasionally, then it was daily. There was one AWACS with a dish attached and another of the same kind of air craft without the dish, It had a mount for the dish but nothing on it. I believe that it was probably an escort (armed?). These planes were on the Tarmac of the the civilian airport in Liberia regularly. They have Coast Guard planes there all the time, but these were clearly marked UASF. The insignia was smaller than normal and hard to see through the fence, but I did get a pic of it on my cell phone. It was really grainy but when I blew it up in Adobe it was USAF sure enough!.
The AWAC is a very sophisticated aircraft used as a airborne early warning system for detection of "unfriendly" aircraft, it is also used to aid fighters in pinpointing their target and can be used as a forward command post for coordination and surveillance of ongoing and mobile operations. What business does the USA have with that kind of plane in Costa Rica? My guess initial guess was they are flying sorties to keep an eye on Venezuela, but with this new info, it seems like there could be a much thicker plot... The presence of these planes on Costa Rican soil came shortly after Laura (the newly elected president of CR). I wonder if she had made some kind of new arrangement with the US?
