Armada of U.S. and Israeli Warships Head for Iran

More than twelve U.S. and Israeli warships, including an aircraft carrier, passed through the Suez Canal on Friday and are headed for the Red Sea. “According to eyewitnesses, the U.S. battleships were the largest to have crossed the Canal in many years,” reported the London-based newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi on Saturday. The United States and Israel, the sole nuclear-armed power in the Middle East, have not ruled out a military strike to destroy Iran’s nuclear program.

The passage of a warship armada through the Suez Canal and headed for the Persian Gulf and Iran is apparently not deemed important enough to be reported by the corporate media in the United States.

It should be apparent to all by now that the Obama administration is fifth-rate at best. Perhaps any American administration in these days would be. It is stuffed with self-important folks with Ivy-league wallpaper, few competencies, and endless ambition.

Meanwhile the US was embarrassed (thankfully, for those of us fearing a world war) by Iran’s recent nuclear deal with Brazil and Turkey; frozen in the headlights by the No. Korean torpedoing of the So. Korean ship; tap dancing as fast as they can to do endless U turns in Afghanistan re: Karzai; and in a daze regarding the Gulf oil disaster. There isn’t a logistics expert in sight, no one with an organizing principle or maybe any principles at all. And the financial meltdown is far from over.

The signs of delusion and decay are everywhere.  Any self-respecting rat should be hunting for the nearest porthole.
