Deploying the Fleet: An October War No Surprise
"The Nation - Dave Lindorff - As reports circulate of a sharp debate within the White House over possible U.S. military action against Iran and its nuclear enrichment facilities, The Nation has learned that the Bush Administration and the Pentagon have moved up the deployment of a major "strike group" of ships, including the nuclear aircraft carrier Eisenhower as well as a cruiser, destroyer, frigate, submarine escort and supply ship, to head for the Persian Gulf, just off Iran's western coast. This information follows a report in the current issue of Time magazine, both online and in print, that a group of ships capable of mining harbors has received orders to be ready to sail for the Persian Gulf by October 1." thenation.com
"The Nation magazine has learned that the Eisenhower Strike Group is headed to the Persian Gulf. Could this be a ploy, a show of strength? Could it be the makings of a blockade and plans for war? The scheduled arrival date in the Gulf is 21 October." pej.org
