launching today in general direction - Middle East - for a brand new 7 month engagement, is the LHA 1 Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group, consisting of the amphibious assault ship, the USS Peleliu which consists of 4000 marines. LHA 1 also comprises of the amphibious transport dock USS Green Bay and the dock landing ship USS Rushmore. Also deploying Monday is the Marine Corps' 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit and elements of Fleet Surgical Team 1, Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 23, Assault Craft Units 1 and 5, and Beach Master Unit 1. And as we reported previously, the middle east veteran - the CVN 74 Stennis aircraft carrier - was providently already on its way. In other words, in about 2 weeks, the Middle east will be the focal point of 3 aircraft carriers, 2 amphibious assault forces, and who knows how many "developed" world armadas, all hell bent on securing that one extra bit of Middle East oil, under the guise of spreading democracy and liberating the local people who "hate America's for its freedom."

So first they moved the fleet in, with all its missiles and technology and we assumed it was for a stand-off attack if needed.

Now they bring in the marines too... that's gearing up for a little bit more then just lobbing a few cruise missiles over the coast. Very concerning indeed.

And the murder of the Ambassador wasnt a False Flag type event at all. It would have been easy to move all of these troops to the middle east without killing those Americans right? Nobody would have cared about all that beefing up of security.


Could the US Government be more evil if it tried?

Do you really want an answer to that question? And think about the real reason why theyre wanting to go there. What do they have that we want. We dont go into countries to promote democracy, we go there to steal from them.

It is conceivable, I suppose, yes.

Let's not encourage them, please.

Someday, somebody has to show me what all we're getting from all these countries. We supposedly have had over 10 years of war for oil, yet paying near all time record prices and the actual records did come during this war. Odd thing there....

So if we're going into nations to steal, what are we taking and where is it going? Libya was strategic, not monetary. Gadaffi located and was working to develop one of, if not the largest source of fresh water in North Africa. Wars are fought over water there...as we saw.

Whats to gain in these other places though? Egypt will be endless civil war if the U.S. didn't lose outright by population numbers alone...Syria is Iraq's nightmares x10 and only a Secy State with delusions of legacies thinks otherwise. I'm just lost at what we are gaining, as a nation or a people, by any of this now. Single men are gaining...no one else is.

Exactly. Single men are profiting hugely from these wars and events. Its not for our benefit as a country but for the benefit of a select few. If not for oil, water or other resources...then what? Precious metals? A specific mineral? I dont know, but I know its not for the betterment of the country

Oh, please!

This is a regularly scheduled WESTPAC deployment that has been scheduled for months, as they have been for decades. It will likely simply replace the Iwo Jima, which has been in the Middle East for months. The Peleliu is a San Diego-based Amphibious Ready Group. Seriously, folks, this does NOT represent any sort of escalation.

We have to go through this every six months. Every time a normally scheduled Strike Group or Ready Group makes a transition there are cries of, "Oh, my God! It's heating up!"

It's not. Chill. Really.

No way a real "war" will be declared. Oh, soldiers will die but it'll be labeled "Operation Seaside Freedom Fiesta" or some such nonsense with our guys being shackled by limited rules of engagement.

I don't think we have Embassies and Compounds being over run and the threat of more being over-run to the quick accompaniment of the State Department saying the Marines are on the way in-force, every 6 months.


These may very well be different Marines already scheduled into the area. Who knows? We do have ongoing and wide spread anti-piracy commitments in these same waters for those who forget that aspect happening at the same time as everything else.

It's just wonderful seeing them bring in 4,000 of America's "First Responders". The Consulate Incident may not be repeated if one of those ships happens to be within easy flight range for support and evacuation. One can hope. (4,000 Marines aren't good for ANY offensive actions, that's for sure..not enough)

the true strategy of the arab "spring" is to destabilize the enemies of the united states and israel.

as long as syria, iraq, libya and egypt are fighting amongst themselves, they will be incapable of organizing themselves to fight against israel and u.s. interests.

it makes attacking iran much more easier.

there would be no arab coalition attacking israel from multiple fronts. no wars of opportunity.

this is not the 1970's. military tech. is so advanced and deadly, that it cancels each other out.

tanks are irrelevant.

missiles are so accurate that a large no. of troops can be taken out from hundreds of miles away.

modern warfare is about numbers. who has the most people left alive after the enemy have exhausted their arsenal.

becaue of the size and density of population of israel, it will not survive a coordinated missile attack from multiple fronts and countries.

we are talking about hundreds of thousands of high explosive missiles, rockets and artillery. not a few scuds.

US gets political interest in the region. Also, don't forget with invading Iraq they secured ALL contracts to be fulfilled in US dollars, whether the oil goes to China or Russia or anywhere else. Saddam wanted to go to the Euro but that didn't end up so well for him, eh?

You must have been asleep, haven't you seen

WWIII Is Coming Soon & Here's Why!? A very good summarized introduction about the why of to the status quo and where we are headed. One could say it is a bit propagandistic but how can this type of message be heard and easy propagated in a world where there is no more a free and independent media beyond the cacophony of the WEB that has itself been partially co-opted by political and economic interests.

There are also other reasons even historic reasons but the video explains the major reason why (what the US is gaining). Haven't you seen also a documentary regarding who profits from the wars ? Starting by the criminal contracts to feed the military and exploit the American taxpayer ? You must only focus on who profits from an event to find who is behind it, this is how the majority of crimes are solved...

The POINT is that the two are not related. People who think so are jumping to the conclusion that BECAUSE of the embassy situation, THEREFORE 4,000 Marines are on their way. That's not true at all, even a little bit. And if you care to go back and look at the many threads on Navy deployments in the past you will find that every six months, whenever a Strike Group or ARG deploys, the same thing happens. People rush to judgment and proclaim there is an "escalation" in effect.

This is like clockwork going back about three years ago when an erstwhile new ATS member proclaimed that the USS Stennis was going to go to attack Korea and start WW III. Didn't happen. I told him so. My reward? Calling me a bunch of names. The plain fact is I've been correct every single time.

You know the reasons the Peleliu is being deployed? Because the Iwo Jima is running out of Diet Coke and the Marines want to get home and get laid. That's why. They are trading one group of 4,000 Marines (& sailors) for another group of 4,000 Marines (& sailors.) That's all.

ATS's response? Chicken Little. OMG! WW III! False Flag! Escalation! People here seem incapable of absorbing and learning normal Naval rotation schedule.

Like I said. Chill. Really.

I have some buddies on this float. It is just a normal deployment so far. More than likely heading into Afghanistan at some point but who knows with what is going on. I imagine they will head that way at some point here soon.
