Aircraft Carrier CVN-77 Parks Next Door To Syria Just As US Urges Americans To Leave Country “Immediately”

Yesterday we reported that the Arab League (with European and US support) are preparing to institute a no fly zone over Syria. Today, we get an escalation which confirms we may be on the edge. Just out from CBS: “The U.S. Embassy in Damascus urged its citizens in Syria to depart “immediately,” and Turkey’s foreign ministry urged Turkish pilgrims to opt for flights to return home from Saudi Arabia to avoid traveling through Syria.” But probably the most damning evidence that the “western world” is about to do the unthinkable and invade Syria, and in the process force Iran to retaliate, is the weekly naval update from Stratfor, which always has some very interesting if always controversial view on geopolitics, where we find that for the first time in many months, CVN 77 George H.W. Bush has left its traditional theater of operations just off the Straits of Hormuz, a critical choke point, where it traditionally accompanies the Stennis, and has parked… right next to Syria.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Well, protecting our people is the right thing to do. It is obvious the Syrian leadership is crazy, they never had to give up before. Also if the League gets into trouble we will have to help them we encouraged them. But lets hope they leave Israel out of this because if they can get a war going we are back in Iraq “you are so close on to Iran what are you waiting for” this time Bush waited and changed course to stabilize Iraq. That is something we can salute Bush for knowing the pressure Israel and the neocon put on him, he decided “I am the President and I decide”
