Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This one would be rather different though, this time once they cross Jordanian  or Syrian Airspace, then they are effectively in airspace that we control. Either Iraqi airspace, Saudi airspace, or Turkish airspace. it would be rather difficult to claim it was being done without our permission. especially as it would be necessary to stage refueling aircraft at some distance over  teritory we control.

Perhaps there is some sanity in the Bush camp, and the extra carrier group is there to deter the Israelis from any rash action.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
