We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Maybe we are letting the Euro weenies deal with their backyard because it's party time in Iran. From what I've read from Ralph Peters and others, an air campaign against Iran would have to be sustained for some time and would probably require "eyes on the ground" to verify their equipment is destroyed. Hence the Marines and SEALS along for the ride.
On the article about the "Massive US Naval Armada", I believe he is correct about large naval forces moving to the mid-east. However much of the article is opinion and involves statements like,
"This is a most serious game of military brinkmanship with major nuclear armed powers that have profound objections to the neo-con grand strategy and to western control of all of the Middle East's oil supply.".
Talk of neo-cons, a neo-con "grand strategy" and western control of the mid-east oil is a staple of the far left. He also has the US (neo-cons) responsible for the war in Georgia.
By the time I got to the part about a massive Iranian bio-engineered virus attack (not to mention the obligatory allegation that neo-cons in league with Israelis ginned up the Georgia crisis in order to divert attention from the Iranian blockade), I concluded that this "Global Research" website was a looney-tunes outlet, or a joke.
That's Global Research CANADA to you, all you blatant neocon yankee imperialist running dogs.
The Kuwait buttpucker seems to be genuine, and who can blame them? They've got to still have a tender poopchute from getting Saddamized.
Iranian blockade, not so much. There's a regular rotation of naval forces, and there ARE still aircraft carriers sitting around in harbor on both east and west coasts. If we ever decide to corncob Iran, there probably won't be a lot of warships sitting idle. (Unless those pesky neocons just want you to think there are warships sitting idle, capitalist paper tigers. That would lull the moolah-moolah mullahs into a false sense of security so they could go on hanging teen queens and stoning rape victims to death like any sensible medieval society.)
