BTL:US Sends Warships to Iran, Pre-Election Attack Possible

U.S. Sends Warships to Iran, Pre-Election Attack Possible

Interview with journalist David Lindorff, conducted by Scott Harris

Even as North Korea conducted a nuclear weapons test, setting-off worldwide condemnation, the Bush administration had deployed a naval strike group to the Straits of Hormuz off the Iranian coast. The war ships, scheduled to arrive in the Straits on Oct. 21, include the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier U.S.S. Eisenhower, a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine and supply ship. The mission of this armada is not known, but there are reports that angry naval officers within the Eisenhower Strike Group have told antiwar retired officers that their ships are being sent to launch a military attack against Iran.

There is no confirmation that President Bush has ordered such an attack and it could be a bluff designed to intimidate Iran. But if an October attack is carried out, the timing suggests that influencing the outcome of the November congressional election -- where Republicans are on the ropes -- may be a primary strategic goal. Critics warn that such a U.S. pre-emptive strike against Iran's nuclear research facilities would likely set off a wider war inside Iraq and throughout the Middle East, where Iran's allies are capable of launching counterattacks against U.S. targets.

Both Time magazine and investigative journalist Dave Lindorff have written stories about the debate within the Bush administration over U.S. policy toward Iran and the concurrent deployment of the U.S.S. Eisenhower to waters off the Iranian coast. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Dave Lindorff who discusses the possible war scenario described in his article, "War Signals?" which appeared on the The Nation magazine website in September.

Dave Lindorff is co-author of the book, "The Case for Impeachment, The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush from Office." To read his articles online visit Dave's website at:

"Even as North Korea conducted a nuclear weapons test, setting-off worldwide condemnation, the Bush administration had deployed a naval strike group to the Straits of Hormuz off the Iranian coast."

I oppose war against Iran, but do you suggest war against North Korea? Do you suggest that North Korea has no right to self defense. Let us not forget that the US invaded Iraq because they didn't have weapons of mass destruction, not because they did.

North Korea Has The Right To Self Defense!

There once lived High pressure blowera lad who was deeply in love with a girl, but Industrial fandisliked by the girl’s father, who didn’t want to see any further development of their love. The lad was eager to write to the girl, yet he Industrial blowerwas quite sure that the father Commercial blowerwould read it first. So he wrote such a letter to the girl:ugg boots My love for you I once expressed no longer lasts, instead, Wholesale clothingmy distaste for you is growing with each passing day.pressure blower Next time I see you, I even won’t like that look yours.pressure blowers I’ll do nothing but look away from you. You can never expect I’fansll marry you. The last chat we had was so dullblowers and dry that you shouldn’t think it made me eager to see you again. If we get married, I firmly believe I’ll live a hard life, I can never live happily with you, I’ll devote myself but not to you. No one else is more harsh and selfish and least solicitous and considerate than you. I sincerely want to let you know what I said is true. Please do me a favor by ending our relations and refrain from writing me a reply. Your letter is always full of things which displease me. You have no sincere care for me. So long! Please believe I don’t love you any longer. Don’t think I still have a love of you! Having read the letter, the father felt relieved and gave it to his daughter with a light heart. The girl also felt quite pleased after she read it carefully, her lad still had a deep love for her. Do you know why? In fact, she felt very sad when she read the letter for the first time. But she read it for a few more times and , at last, she found the key – only every other line should be read, that is the first line, the third, the fifth … and so on to the end.

wow gold

How easy world of warcraft gold it was to confuse you world of warcraft gold two. At least you sound like you're joking, the other guy was serious!This Also you have no idea if it will wow power leveling get more armor/energy The new rocket cluster or the yamato gun? you gotta choose. Either world of warcraft gold way they still suck, why build one of them? When I can literally build x4 wraiths. 80 dps per sec versus 25 dps per 25 sec. Figure cheap wow gold out the math.Battlecruiser and Carrier need some help. They are destroyed easily even world of warcraft gold with support. I'll post more on this but i gotta go now. Okay, back now. Here goes:I know damn well then wow powerleveling to build multiple battlecrusiers, cause they are not exactly designed for hit and run. For the following reasons:Their world of warcraft gold slow Low rate of fire Too many counters for them, aka scourage, couple wow power leveling dragoons, wraiths Hamoto Gun? Lol, once thats done you killed one hydralisk. Well done, Aoe Lasers? We all saw on the world of warcraft gold tapes on how the cruiser couldn't even kill one hydralisk with em. That is cheap wow gold embarrassing. Even the regular old crappy cruiseres could kill at least 1.Their way to expensive, and offer no world of warcraft gold real tactical value If I wanted to do hit and run with terrans, I would play with dropships, siege tanks, and valkeries buy wow gold or wraiths.Happy now? And if you say their fine, you have obviously never played against them. They are way world of warcraft gold too easy to beat. And in the new expansion their even worse. Marines suck wow power leveling even more. They can barely dps in the new expansion. Medic and Marine combos won't cut it anymore.Obviously world of warcraft gold someone in Blizzard got b'slapped by Terrans and taking vengence by making them so damn weak. All my friends wow gold kaufen playing the Beta version say don't go terran.I'm hell all for that one dude. I've always world of warcraft gold thought it gay on how the queens and defiliers could reduce my siege tanks and battlecruisers...I just gave up building wow powerleveling battlecruisers whenever i face zerg. zerg are so OP lol...no skill at all Man my ONE battlecruiser can't take out a entire dofus kamas army alone. WTF HOW WEAK.It's called support units.for Mt Hyjal, in the Caverns of Time. Basically, Hyjal was kamas dofus the site of a great battle, to try and preserve the Well of Eternity and the World Tree against the Burning dofus kamas Legion/Archimonde during the Third War. left alone in case blizzard ever wanted to go back and create content for them, the dofus kamas current Mt. us and you'll get these at low price.All in All it's Lord of the Rings Online Gold a pretty cool class so far, grown alot since WC3, Im looking forward LOTRO Gold to Playing it. However its taken several years to iron out every all the classes out. It may not be a fly for fun penya stretch to say that issues should be looked at as early as Alpha.

wow gold


I've played flyff penya Blizzard games since the original Diablo came out, and anyone else who has been around their games as long as I have Final Fantasy XI gil has surely noticed that they keep learning from game to game, keeping their best ffxi gil elements and improving upon them. The talent system in WoW is a direct descendant of the Diablo 2 skill system, with eq2 plat extra polishing, and I love it.
I also noticed something interesting - the Diablo eq2 gold 2 classes are the direct inspiration for the WoW classes! Let's take a Lord of the Rings Online Gold look at the evolution process... The Barbarian: Big weapon master LOTRO Gold who screamed and bellowed his enemies into submission. The first iteration of what would be the battle flyff penya shout system of the warrior class.The Sorceress: Mistress of fire, ice buy flyff gold and thunder. Replace thunder with arcane and you have the mage!The Necromancer: A spiritual inspiration ffxi gil for the warlock, though his abilities were to resurrect and to cast poison and buy ffxi gil bone rather than fire and shadow. Who knows, he may yet return as a hero class in some future expansion.shapeshifter eq2 plat into wolf and bear, caller of wild animals and elementalist of earth eq2 gold and fire. His abilities were split apart into Druid ,An archer extraordinaire who can rain arrows. She was also able to Lord of the Rings Online gold perform a variety of arrow-based attacks, like making LOTRO gold them auto-target and and turning them into fire. If you just add an animal fly for fun penya companion, you have the hunter!The Assassin: A near direct transpositon into Rogue. The assassin flyff penya uses dual knives or wristblades, has a cloak of darkness shroud and gains combo points when attacking. Those combo Final Fantasy XI gil points are then released into finishing moves that explode onscreen. A more obvious adaptation is hard to ffxi gil think about, until you look at...The Paladin: Wears plate armor, hits things with hammers, has holy attacks eq2 plat and a variety of auras. They even kept the name of the class.Understanding where WoW comes from gives me eq2 gold renewed appreciation of their development process and the Darwinian growth they have gone through. It's not runescape money necessarily just Diablo that the WoW classes come from, they're mostly just the standard fantasy role playing runescape gold game classes that you'd find in anything from Dungeons & Dragons to Final Fantasy.I think ugg boots you're right, Cleo. I played a Barbarian and Assassin in Diablo2, and now my two favorite toons are ugg boots my warrior and my rogue. The other day while our internet was down I got ugg boots my D2 discs out and gave them a whirl.

wow gold

aijiaen Taunt and wow gold devestate only worked to their max potential if you wow gold had a rend up, but thats a bit of a stretch.As Far as wow gold Talnar, You are correct on alot of points, although along the lines of taking talents you dont want, i actually wow gold ment it in reverse. I was looking at it more of " Wow, if wow gold you want to go to the bottom of the blood tree, your spec is defined for you just wow gold by skipping tanking abilities You are correct, about holding wow gold threat with DPS instead of " causes threat" abilities, and i did forget about frost presence. Like i said i was wow gold more or less looking at DPS DeathKnights only, but i think the wow gold next point i would bring up.
