Armada of British Naval Power Massing in the Gulf as Israel Prepares an Iran Strike
Recall that the Canadians broke off diplomatic relations with Iran and evacuated their own embassy in Tehran just over a week ago. The announcement was accompanied by a pre-emptive denial that the action had anything to do with Canada having been tipped off about an imminent attack on Iran by Israel and / or the US. Huh? Gee Canada, what made you think anyone would jump to that conclusion?
The Guardian (UK) reported less than 2 hours ago that Iran has just confirmed that it has forces in Syria and is prepared to take military action if pushed.
Russia and China have both warned the West against unilateral military action against Syria or Iran. They could easily be drawn in. In fact, I believe that they would have a hard time standing back.
Reuters: Russia Warns West Over Syria After Obama Threats
China Warns West Against Using Force in Syria:
One more disturbing observation I'd note. It's been very strange how Romney has abandoned the economic argument for his presidency in favor of a foreign policy attack on Obama. Everyone has taken this to be just more inept campaigning by Romney. But could his friend Bebe have whispered something in his ear?
Maybe Romney KNEW that this was going to be a foreign policy election before our government or any of the rest of us.
This is BAD stuff. Armageddon 2012 really is starting to look like a possibility.
