    THE Pentagon is moving forces into place in case President Barack Obama opts for military action against Syria, US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel suggested on Friday US time.
    He spoke as a defence official said the US Navy will expand its presence in the Mediterranean with a fourth warship armed with cruise missiles.The US Sixth Fleet, with responsibility in the Mediterranean, has decided to keep the USS Mahan in the region instead of letting it return to its home port in Norfolk, Virginia. Three other destroyers are currently deployed in the region - the USS Gravely, USS Barry and USS Ramage.


    He has to be out of his mind. NO WAY IN HELL will the other Arab states sit still for this.

    Considering they invited us to deal with Libya, and they aren't saying anything about our efforts in Yemen, I'd say the majority of the Arab states aren't going to raise much stink about whatever our limited response will be.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Libya was a smashing success and we were loved by all, today they are an example of the perfect middle eastern democracy with freedom for all.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    DJones: that was when you had a COMPETENT President and CinC.

    The current CinC cant be trusted to tie his own shoes without fucking it up.

    Or to be precise:

    He needs full radar support, three sets of Taccom computers, full backup gear, three hunting dogs asnd an inertial tracking and triangulation system to find his own ass.

    On a GOOD day.

    Ummm... Sonna, both those points I referenced were under Obama. He ordered the US intervention into Libya that led to Qaddafi's overthrow. He's also the CinC responsible for our efforts in battling Al Qaeda's attempt to destabilize Yemen's government as well.

    So I'm not sure what you are talking about.

    I'm not surprised. This has been in the works for a long time.
