There are plenty of people in power right now playing with the voodoo doll called Iran and it looks like they are pushing pins in this doll to see the reaction.
After two weeks of intense multinational war games in the Pacific, the six ships and more than 60 aircraft of USS John C. Stennis Carrier (CVN 74) Strike Group (JCS CSG) pulled into Naval Station Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, July 22, successfully completing the biannual Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise.

So why weren't they the first target in the 'war against terrorism?'
This situation stinks, how many other countries are going to be pulled out of the terror hat for invasion?

Or for that matter, North Korea?????
A week after President Bush singled out Iran, Iraq and North Korea as an "axis of evil" in his State of the Union speech, the US Secretary of State Colin Powell has moved to reassure America's allies about the meaning of the phrase.
"It does not mean that we are ready to invade anyone or that we are not willing to engage in dialogue. Quite the contrary," Mr Powell said.
Mr Bush's State of the Union message seems to have frightened America's allies quite as much as it scared its enemies - evil or otherwise.
