Elver...we are in bad times. A weak President with a weak Congress and weak Americans not willing to support our troops. Our enemies smell blood in the water.

He is right about a - different rationality.

 

The Holy Quran says:  
 
"Surely those who are close to Allah, have no fear nor shall they grieve." (Surah Younus, 10:62)  
 
Imam Ja'far Sadiq (A) says: "A true believer can never commit suicide."  
 
Thus, religious faith is, on the one hand, a motivating force,


(and Note: Iran is Ruled by the ... "Mosque"  ( so believe ... it (religion/Islam ) is a motivating force )

Bilderberg group met last week and they havent decided on bombing Iran.  So all this show of force is on hold until they decide which way to go.   Many in Europe are against it and the US cant act until they get the go ahead from the Illuminati.

PARIS -- A report released by the Council of Europe on Friday accuses the World Health Organization and European governments of vastly exaggerating the public health risks of swine flu and making secretive decisions that benefited pharmaceutical companies.

WHO, the U.N. health agency, has said those who claim swine flu was a fake pandemic created for the benefit of drug companies are irresponsible.

A report by the health committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, a 47-member human rights watchdog, says the public health guidelines by WHO, EU agencies and national governments led to a "waste of large sums of public money and unjustified scares and fears about the health risks faced by the European public."

The report was made public Friday. Legislators from all 47 members of the Council of Europe will debate the report June 24. The Council of Europe is not a European Union body and has no power over WHO.

The committee said decisions about the outbreak were poorly explained and not transparent enough. It warned that public trust in WHO recommendations is "plummeting," which could be dangerous in case of a more severe pandemic in the future. The committee also suggested that drug makers contribute to a public fund to support independent research.

Since bird flu broke out several years ago, governments worldwide have bought stockpiles of vaccines and antivirals. The emergence of swine flu sparked some countries to buy even more drugs. Many of the drugs and vaccines have gone unused, and the outbreak turned out to be much less deadly than some experts had feared.

Because influenza is so unpredictable, authorities often must prepare for the worst. Some had feared swine flu could be as deadly as the 1918 pandemic, which killed up to 50 million people worldwide.

USS CHANCELLORSVILLE
 
 
TICONDEROGA-class AEGIS cruiser
 
 
On July 7th, the men and women of the Aegis class cruiser
USS CHANCELLORSVILLE (CG-62) will depart San Diego
and head out to be forward deployed in Yokosuka, Japan
 
 

 
In addition to the added radar capability, the Ticonderoga class built after the Thomas S. Gates are outfitted with two Vertical Launching Systems (or VLS). The two VLS allow the ship to have 122 launch tubes that can carry a wide variety of missiles, including the Tomahawk cruise missile, the Standard surface-to-air missile, the Evolved Sea Sparrow surface-to-air missile, and the ASROC anti-submarine missile. More importantly, the VLS enables all missiles to be on full stand-by at any given time, shortening the ship's response time.

Chinese oppose US carrier deployment

By William R. Hawkins
In a speech to the Asia Society June 9, Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, expressed dismay over China's failure to support U.S. and allied calls for punishing North Korea over its sinking of the Cheonan, a South Korean corvette. Forty-six crewmen died when a North Korea submarine ambushed and torpedoed the Republic of Korea (ROK) warship March 26. Beijing's reaction is more than just "tepid" as Adm. Mullen described it. It sees American support for South Korea to be a threat to China. On the same day as the admiral's speech, an editorial in the... (Read Full Article)

Perhaps it reminds China of a war.... or being occupied?  I do understand them feeling territorial.   The last time we were occupied was the 1700's.
 
 
" When it wishes to disturb others..." 
 
 
well, I would say that Iran wanting to
do away with Israel is disturbing, and N. Korea acting wacko/ provacative is very disturbing.  Why are they so worried about their seas? 
 
It certainly intends to make its presence felt in the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea...."
 
Oh my... I had no idea they see us as an opponent?
 
One that opposes another or others in a battle, contest, controversy, or debate
 

Who would not be bothered by an opponent hanging around at the door with a gun all day long?
 
 
China needs to get a clue...that N. Korea is actually a thorn in the side . not a jewel in the crown.
 
No one would need to hang out there if China had control over N. Korea.

Deployment of naval vessels around Iran is troubling for a few reasons: while some doubt surrounds whether or not the INS Spear in the 2006 incident in which it was almost sunk had its anti-missile systems online, the C-802 anti-ship missile has some upgrades available today that make it much less detectable by ESM systems.  Assuming that Iran has not acquired any more advanced anti-ship weapons, this still presents a significant threat to any navy vessels near their shores.  Because the gulf is narrow, and the C-802 is an extremely fast platform, the time to detect, target and respond to this and similar weapons systems is very small.

Obviously IMO, but it seems like this is an unnecessary risk for our troops.  It's unlikely Iran would actually attempt to, or succeed in destroying a US ship in a CSG, but that doesn't mean an incident similar to the attack on the INS Spear can't happen.

Call me silly, but I think all the movement is mainly, policing.... military high profile to keep up the influx of $$$...  Turkey is so into their new role as uniter of the Islamic world.... and our Corps are so busy raking in the dough over there...
I just don't see any War in the mix.

This is all just preparation.  At this point the Bilderberg group has NOT given their consent to allow anyone to bomb Iran.  Until they do, it will not happen.

At their meeting in Spain, (2 weeks ago) they could not agree on doing it, so until they get the whole group to agree, dont look for sparks to fly.  Much pressure on them since they are more out in the open, lots did not attend. 

Their main agenda is to reduce the world population to around 200 mil or so.  Do gooder Bill Gates and his dogooder wife were both at the meeting.

How do you have this info? I would imagine that those meetings are closely guarded.
