    Armada of Naval Power Massing in the Gulf as Israel Prepares an Iran Strike


    1. Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

    2. A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on oil and gas supplies from the Gulf.

    3. In preparation for any pre-emptive or retaliatory action by Iran, warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will today begin an annual 12-day exercise

    4. Obama refused a requested meeting to see Prime Minister Netanyahu any time this month, but found time to see Prime Minister Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    5. Apparently other countries are worried about the situation Israel finds itself in at this time.

    6. President Obama continues campaigning as the crisis develops between Iran and Israel and the US embassies in the Middle East and Northern Africa com under fire by the people.

    7. The Leaders of the Sudan will not permitted the Marines to come in and protect the US embassy there. No comment from Obama.

    How much more chaos crises does there have to be in the world before the president decides to do his job?

    Isreal, without US aid, might find themselve in a hard way, even with Iran removed from the equation. American interests are not Isreali interests.

    Then Obama should meet with Netanyahu and let him know that. Stop stringing him along so he knows what he's up against. Obama has to be clear. He sent warships to be part of the Armada but it's probably for the oil. If he doesn't plan on being any help in an attack or a defense to Israel, let Israel know that. Stop the pussyfooting around. Obama is a feckless leader.

    As long as Obama is our president, I beginning to believe in the Mayan calandar!

    I'm thinking he means if Iran is totally destroyed there are still other moslim countries that will attack Israel.

    No doubt in my mind
