MAJOR ARMADA PREPARES FOR IRAN BLOCKADE

Europe Business Canada, August 7 - Operation Brimstone ended only one week ago. This was the joint US/UK/French naval war games in the Atlantic Ocean preparing for a naval blockade of Iran and the likely resulting war in the Persian Gulf area. The massive war games included a US Navy supercarrier battle group, an US Navy expeditionary carrier battle group, a Royal Navy carrier battle group, a French nuclear hunter-killer submarine plus a large number of US Navy cruisers, destroyers and frigates playing the "enemy force". . .

The build up of naval forces in the Gulf will be one of the largest multi-national naval armadas since the First and Second Gulf Wars. The intent is to create a US/EU naval blockade (which is an Act of War under international law) around Iran (with supporting air and land elements) to prevent the shipment of benzene and certain other refined oil products headed to Iranian ports. Iran has limited domestic oil refining capacity and imports 40% of its benzene. Cutting off benzene and other key products would cripple the Iranian economy. The neo-cons are counting on such a blockade launching a war with Iran.

The large and very advanced nature of the US Naval warships is not only directed at Iran. There is a great fear that Russia and China may oppose the naval and air/land blockade of Iran. If Russian and perhaps Chinese naval warships escort commercial tankers to Iran in violation of the blockade it could be the most dangerous at-sea confrontation since the Cuban Missile Crisis. The US and allied Navies, by front loading a Naval blockade force with very powerful guided missile warships and strike carriers is attempting to have a force so powerful that Russia and China will not be tempted to mess with. 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.

The Russian Navy this spring sent a major battle fleet into the Mediterranean headed by the modern aircraft carrier the Admiral Kuznetsov and the flagship of its Black Sea Fleet, the Guided Missile Heavy Cruiser Moskva. This powerful fleet has at least 11 surface ships and unknown numbers of subs and can use the Russian naval facility at Syria's Tartous port for resupply. The Admiral Kuznetsov carries approximately 47 warplanes and 10 helicopters. . . .

A strategic diversion has been created for Russia. The Republic of Georgia, with US backing, is actively preparing for war on South Ossetia. The South Ossetia capital has been shelled and a large Georgian tank force has been heading towards the border. Russia has stated that it will not sit by and allow the Georgians to attack South Ossetia. The Russians are great chess players and this game may not turn out so well for the neo-cons.

Update 8 August 2008 - War has broken out between Georgia and South Ossetia. At least 10 Russian troops have been killed and 30 wounded and 2 Russian fighter jets downed. American Marines, a thousand of them, have recently been in Georgia training the Georgian military forces. Several European nations stopped Bush and others from allowing Georgia into NATO. Russia is moving a large military force with armor towards the area. This could get bad, and remember it is just a strategic diversion. . . but one that could have horrific effects

Kuwait has activated its "Emergency War Plan" as it and other Gulf nations prepare for the likelihood of a major regional war in the Middle East involving weapons of mass destruction.

The two-ton elephant in the living room of the neo-con strategy is the advanced biowar that Iran, and to a lessor extent Syria, has. This places the motherlands of the major neo-con nations (America, France, the United Kingdom), as well as Israel, in grave danger. When the Soviet Union fell the Iranians hired as many out-of-work former Soviet advanced biowar experts as possible. In the last 15 or so years they have helped to develop a truly world class ABW program utilizing recombination DNA genetic engineering technology to create a large number of man made killer viruses. This form of weapon system does not require high tech military delivery systems. The viruses are sub-microscopic and once seeded in a population use the population itself as vectors. Seeding can be done without notice in shopping malls, churches, and other public places. The only real defense to an advanced global strategic biowar attack is to lock down the population as rapidly as possible and let those infected die off.

Unless the public gets it act together and forces the neo-cons to stop the march to yet another war in the Middle East we are apt to see a truly horrific nightmare unfold in our countries.

This is a very dangerous development. I can't believe this is happening, I knew things would escalate between the world powers but I am still shocked.

It is so written. Throughout history and time logic and common sense have not prevailed too prevent wars. Those with predetermined motives and for whom people are collateral damage . ie. the Neocons will continue with their plans.

Russia is winning the fight against Georgia. What happens now? This was supposed to be a diversion tying down the Russian military, but Russia seems to be making quick work of the Georgian army.

Something often overlooked in discussions of this issue: a third world war would burn up a huge portion of the planet's dwindling oil supply. None of us can afford for this to happen.

I'd be more impressed if he'd spelled "Ronald Reagan" correctly.

The U.S. just finished a major joint military exercise with Georgia that included over 1000 U.S. personnel, hundreds of NATO troops, and the Georgian military. The U.S./Georgia/NATO exercises were held from July 15th to July 30 called Operation Immediate Response 2008. Just in time for U.S. puppet Georgia to start a confrontation with Russia.

To the one who claimed there is no evidence, there are the following facts:

- The Jerusalem Post has several articles on this matter

- The primary source re the USS Ronald Reagan and the USS Theodore Roosevelt appears to be the Kuwaitis, stories are in the Kuwaiti Times.

- The Kuwaitis have activated their emergency war plan, so they definitely believe that something is up.

- The source for a third US naval battle group comes from the fact that these ships were seen traversing the Suez canal last week.

A full roster of ships involved can be found at europebusines.blogspot.com

One fact that is absent from these postings is that it was Iran who first threatened to block tankers from the gulf and boasted that they have a new weapon capable of sinking ships from 300 kilometers away. The so called neocons are simply responding to the threat made by Iran. It seems clear to me that Iran is the nation who wants to dominate the region and control the oil flow.

To the fuckin' idiot at 11:10 --the Iranian threat was that they'd block the gulf, and attack US ships with missiles, IF WE ATTACKED THEM FIRST. In other words, you fuckin' assclown, they threatened to defend themselves. The lunatics running this country ARE the problem.
