USS Carrier Harry Truman Now Officially Just Off Iran, As Israel. As we first reported last week, in an article that was met with much original skepticism, the Pentagon has now confirmed that a fleet of 12 warships has passed the Suez Canal, and is now likely awaiting orders to support the escalation in the Persian Gulf.
The attached image from Stratfor shows the latest positioning of US aircraft carrier groups as of June 23: the USS Harry Truman (CVN-75) is now right next to USS Eisenhower (CVN 69), both of which are waiting patiently just off Iran. Report republished with permission of STRATFOR As for the catalyst the two carriers may be anticipating, we provide the following update from the Gulf Daily News where we read that Israel may be on the verge of an attack of Iran, with an incursion originating from military bases in Azerbaijan and Georgia. We caution readers to take this news with a grain of salt as the Gulf Daily News' sister publication, Akhbar Al Khaleej, has a slightly less than stellar credibility rating. Report: US Warships Stationed Off Iranian Coast : ICH - Informa. Israel setting up Saudi base for Iran raid? - World news - Midea. An Iranian allegation that Saudi Arabia is allowing Israel to use its territory in preparation for attacking Iran nuclear sites has stirred a flurry of reports in the Israeli media.
The allegation could not be independently confirmed, and the Saudis deny cooperating with the Israeli military. The Jerusalem Post website on Sunday said reports that the Israeli military had established a base in Saudi Arabia originated with Iranian and Israeli news outlets. The Jewish Telegraphic Agency and Ha'aretz were among Israeli media carrying the reports credited to Fars, the semi-official Iranian news agency. The Fars report was also picked up buy international outlets such as UPI. The reports said the Israeli base is about five miles from Tabuk in northwest Saudi Arabia. G-8 'fully believes' Israel will attack Iran, says Italy PM - Ha. First of all,let me say that i dont wish a war should happen.but,if it does happen,thanks to an israeli strike on iran,triggered by cowards like berlusconi and sarkozy,the israelis would be in a very difficult position.even the usa will not be able to save the day for the israelis.it could turn out to be good-bye "israel". iran is too strong and influential in the ME for anyone to think it would simple be a picnic to strike iran.we are talking here of hell fire.all of palestine is too small to accomodate that fire,believe me.if iran is attacked,expect 4-5 fronts:gaza,lebanon,syria,iran and who knows?
Report: U.S., Israeli warships cross Suez Canal toward Red Sea - ISRAEL 'PLOTS TEHRAN RAID' MANAMA: Israel is massing warplanes in the Caucasus for an attack on Iran, it was revealed yesterday.
Preparations are underway to launch the military attack from Azerbaijan and Georgia, reports our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej, quoting military sources. Israel was, in fact, training pilots in Turkey to launch the strike and was smuggling planes into Georgia using Turkish airspace, they said. However, Turkey was unaware of Israel's intention of transferring the planes to Georgia, the sources said. The unexpected crisis between Israel and Turkey following an Israeli commando raid on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza Strip hit Israeli calculations.
Iran Arms Syria With Radar - WSJ.com (Build 20100722155716) Updated June 30, 2010 12:01 a.m.
ET JERUSALEM—Iran has sent Syria a sophisticated radar system that could threaten Israel's ability to launch a surprise attack against Iran's nuclear facilities, say Israeli and U.S. officials, extending an alliance aimed at undermining Israel's military dominance in the region. The radar could bolster Syria's defenses by providing early warning of Israeli air-force sorties. It could also benefit Hezbollah, the Iran-backed militant group based in Lebanon and widely believed to receive arms from Syria. Any sharing of radar information by Syria could increase the accuracy of Hezbollah's own missiles and bolster its air defenses. The mid-2009 transfer was described in recent months by two Israeli officials, two U.S. officials and a Western intelligence source, and confirmed Wednesday by the Israeli military.
Iran and Syria both denied that a radar transfer took place. A White House spokesman declined to comment on the transfer.
