Carrier CVN-77 Parks Next Door To Syria Just As US Urges Americans To Leave Country "Immedi
Aircraft Carrier CVN-77 Parks Next Door To Syria Just As US Urges Americans To Leave Country "Immediately"
Yesterday we reported that the Arab League (with European and US support) are preparing to institute a no fly zone over Syria.
Today, we get an escalation which confirms we may be on the edge.

Just out from CBS: "The U.S. Embassy in Damascus urged its citizens in Syria to depart "immediately," and Turkey's foreign ministry urged Turkish pilgrims to opt for flights to return home from Saudi Arabia to avoid traveling through Syria." But probably the most damning evidence that the "western world" is about to do the unthinkable and invade Syria, and in the process force Iran to retaliate, is the weekly naval update from Stratfor, which always has some very interesting if always controversial view on geopolitics, where we find that for the first time in many months, CVN 77 George H.W. Bush has left its traditional theater of operations just off the Straits of Hormuz, a critical choke point, where it traditionally accompanies the Stennis, and has parked... right next to Syria.

7. At this time of year, we pause, reflect and give thanks to our giant oil companies...
On whose owners' behalf we kill, maim, and displace as many as we need to in order to corner a market.

Oil, a Prayer

Anointed with oil on troubled waters?
Oh Heavenly Grid,
Help us bear up Thy Standard,
Our Chevron flashing bright
Across the Gulf of Compromise,
Standing Humble on the RichField
Of Mobile American Thinking?
Here in this Shell,
We call Life.

From: "Don't Crush That Dwarf. Hand Me the Plyers."

6. Looking at these responses I can't help but to think : WWJD
What would Jesus do
and what arms would he bring to the conflict. Or Allah.
I am so sick
so sick
so sick
of war.
