Iran menace by american military forces in Gulf region

What watson is NOT reporting is that the USS Abraham Lincoln, of mission
accomplished notoriety, has major mechanical problems from it's being
rushed to completion so it could "participate" in gulf war one and has a
seriously compromised hull, as does the USS Carl Vinson and USS
Enterprise, the former of the bin Laden notoriety, the former from
operation preying mantis notoriety. To add more insult the USS bataan,
of katrina notoriety is being sent, and it should not go without saying
as to the flimsy hull construction of US Navy Destroyers, as well as
Cruisers and Frigates, and the only ship with a solid construction is
the USS Makin Island. Essentially, america is doing everything to
provoke a fight, and doing so by sending military units which iran can
take out. Few even realize that Iran has upped it's Atack Submarine
force to 20 and has upgraded all the weapons on all six FFG's and 10
Corvettes stationed in the Gulf.

US Warns Iran Not To Fight Back Against Israeli Attack

US warship remains in Strait Of Hormuz amidst simmering tensions

The USS Abraham Lincoln warship has remained stationed in the Strait of
Hormuz despite an Iranian threat that no more aircraft carriers should
transit the sensitive oil choke point as tensions in the Persian Gulf
continue to simmer with Washington warning Tehran it will join an
Israeli attack if Iran dares to fight back in any way.

Stratfor’s latest naval update map shows that the USS Lincoln has not
moved from its position having transited the Strait almost two weeks
ago. Similarly, the USS Carl Vinson has also remained in its position,
suggesting US Naval officials are satisfied with the strategic position
of the two warships as Israel prepares to launch an attack on Iran in
which the US could quickly become embroiled.

US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta “believes there is a strong
likelihood that Israel will strike Iran in April, May or June,” reports
the Washington Post, adding that Panetta was likely told of the timing
when Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak postponed a a planned
U.S.-Israel military exercise that had been scheduled for May.

It now appears that the United States has almost finalized getting all
its ducks in a row in preparation for Israel’s assault on Iran’s nuclear
facilities. The Washington Post article makes it clear that the Obama
administration will stand by while Tel Aviv leads the attack. The US
will only become overtly involved if “Iran hits U.S. assets” or if
“Israel’s population centers were hit”.

In other words, if Iran attempts to fight back in any way, which is all
but inevitable, the US will join the attack. The Obama administration
will then think itself justified in telling the American people that the
US acted in self-defense, when in reality such a series of coordinated
events is absurdly obvious.

“I can’t say clearly enough that what the U.S. has signaled in Ignatius’ report is that if Iran is attacked, it may not strike back against its attacker,” writes Richard Silverstein. “If it does, the U.S. will rain down hellfire and damnation on it. This is frightening beyond measure. I’ve never known the U.S. to lay down such a principle which virtually assures our joining in a war against Iran. Israeli policymakers will be delighted to read these words.”

Both Washington and Tel Aviv are hoping for a repeat of Operation
Orchard, Israel’s attack on a Syrian nuclear reactor in 2007 that
prompted no significant retaliation from Assad’s regime. However, Iran’s
Air Force is second only to Israel’s in the region and Tehran’s surface
to air missile capability is far superior.

A third US aircraft carrier, the USS Enterprise, is set to add even more
firepower in the 5th Fleet region after it completes a training exercise
in the Atlantic Ocean. British and French warships are also in place to
provide further back-up.

It has also been revealed that the nuclear submarine USS Annapolis and
the destroyer USS Momsen are likely to heading towards the Persian Gulf
in the build up to a possible attack on Iran.

The United States has sent both the Lincoln and the Vinson sailing
through the Strait in recent weeks despite Iran’s warning that any more
US warships transiting the narrow passageway would not be tolerated.
Tehran’s threat to close the Strait of Hormuz, an act that would cause
chaos on global oil markets, has been described as a “red line” by the
United States.

The US is currently conducting its biggest naval exercises in over a
decade. The Bold Alligator joint Navy and Marine Corps exercise, taking
place off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina, is clearly geared
towards simulating a naval conflict with Iranian forces despite official
claims to the contrary.

According to Israeli intelligence outfit Debka File, the United States
has placed 50,000 troops to be ready for “any contingency” by March,
with another 50,000 on the way, on two two strategic islands at the
southern exit of the Strait of Hormuz. In addition, 15,000 troops are
also on standby in Kuwait.

Tehran is set to conduct more naval exercises in the Strait later this
month. Experts estimate that around 1,000 mines would be required to
block the 55km wide passage and that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have
already stockpiled 2,000 mines for that very purpose.
