Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I remember Chekhov in this case - when there is the gun on the stage it should be used. Who would believe Bush & Co that expensive voyage of these carriers to Persian Gulf is just a demonstration of force intimidating Iranians to cooperate? And then thanks for their willing cooperation?
Of course not, as we have seen in the run-up to Iraq war Buch clique does not need even pretext to launch "preemptive strike".
