Executive Order Sends U.S. Ships to Hormuz

Lowtide
I just spent a week on the North Carolina beach, thinking I might gain a new perspective on the hell-in-a-hand basket to which this country is headed. Every day was perfect; weather, water, and the friends I was with.

And I did gain a new perspective when I got back: its worse than I thought it was. As in this from
Chris Hedges

"The aircraft carrier Eisenhower, accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio, guided-missile destroyer USS Ramage, guided-missile destroyer USS Mason and the fast-attack submarine USS Newport News, is, as I write, making its way to the Straits of Hormuz off Iran. The ships will be in place to strike Iran by the end of the month. It may be a bluff. It may be a feint. It may be a simple show of American power. But I doubt it." continue reading...

And from the comments to the article: "We have only one chance of showing our horror at the possible war with Iran. Pass the word, sound the alarm, the day we bomb Iran close down the country with a total general strike."
Too little, too late.
