U.S. Military Moves Carriers, denies Iran Link
The U.S. military said on Wednesday that a new aircraft carrier strike group had arrived in the Arabian Sea and that another was on its way to the region, but denied any link to recent tensions with Iran and portrayed the movements as routine.
Right. Probably a coincidence.
The shift in the powerful U.S. naval assets comes at a moment of heightened tensions with Iran, which has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz - the world's most important oil shipping lane - if U.S. and EU sanctions over its nuclear program cut off its oil exports.
The U.S. military has said it will halt any blockade of the strategic strait and the top U.S. naval officer acknowledged on Tuesday that preparing for a potential conflict there was something that "keeps me awake at night."
Another carrier strike group, led by the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, concluded a port visit to Thailand on Tuesday and was now in the Indian Ocean. It is on track to join the Vinson in the Central Command area of operations, which begins in the neighboring Arabian Sea.
Tensions between Iran and the United States ratcheted up again in the past week. Iran started an underground uranium enrichment plant and sentenced an American to death for spying. Washington and Europe have stepped up efforts to cripple Iran's oil exports, and Tehran on Wednesday blamed U.S. and Israeli agents for killing an Iranian nuclear scientist.
And below, we see another very interesting article regarding this evolving situation with Iran:
Reports: Israel Resigned To Nuclear Iran, While Obama Ready To Strike?
This seems hard to believe, but below we see this:
In the first report, which appeared in London newspaper The Times, it was revealed that a group of former Israeli ambassadors, intelligence officials and army chiefs had requested a package of simulated scenarios for the day after Iran tests its first nuclear weapon.
The study, conducted by the Institute for National Security Studies, concluded that while Israel would still have a military option, it would be more likely to relent under American pressure and instead forge defense pacts with Western powers as a deterrence against Iranian attack.
Iran would use its nuclear threat to improve its position in the region, while simultaneously kicking off a Middle East nuclear arms race with Saudi Arabia and possibly Egypt.
Meanwhile, a former national security advisor to US President Barack Obama told Bloomberg News on Monday that the American leader will not hesitate to use military force to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
"The Iranians should never think that there’s a reluctance to use the force," said former National Security Council member Dennis Ross, who added that Obama has "made it very clear" that he views a nuclear-armed Iran as one of the world's greatest threats.
Until now, it has been widely assumed that while Obama didn't want Iran to obtain nuclear weapons, he would under no circumstances use military force to prevent it. On the other hand, reports in recent months have suggested that Israel is busily preparing to launch its own strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, with or without American assistance.
Bomb Kills Iran Nuclear Scientist As Crisis Mounts
An Iranian nuclear scientist was blown up in his car by a motorbike hitman on Wednesday, prompting Tehran to blame Israeli and U.S. agents but insist the killing would not derail a nuclear program that has raised fears of war and threatened world oil supplies.
The Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran, which has failed to persuade the West that its quest for nuclear power has no hidden military goal, said the killing of Ahmadi-Roshan would not deter it: "We will continue our path without any doubt ... Our path is irreversible," it said in a statement carried on television.
"The heinous acts of America and the criminal Zionist regime will not disrupt our glorious path ... The more you kill us, the more our nation will awake."
First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi, quoted by IRNA news agency, said: "Iran's enemies should know they cannot prevent Iran's progress by carrying out such terrorist acts."

Alert: Iran Crisis Headed For World War III
The escalation continues and there are no signs to indicate any chance of things slowing down. Sooner or later the tipping point will be reached.
And yet, despite all the threats of WW3, stocks REFUSE to come down ?? Well, I have to GO with
the evidence at hand.
Current EWI counts indicate a possibility NOW of a RALLY to
13,000 or HIGHER !!!
I am NOT saying that will happen
as the MAIN count or operative
count is still bearish, but BEARS
need to PERFORM and SOON !!!!
Otherwise, up we go !!
If that happens I will have NO CHOICE but to conclude that the
"END" is delayed again....
I hope it does NOT come to that.
Patience is needed now until the
waves SORT themselves out.
Stephen , Don't you find it interesting that for the past 2 1/2 years The European Debt Crises has absolutely dictated the stock market causing wild volatility .Now for the last two weeks its literally no big deal even though nothing has changed ? However , i remembered a video i had watched a couple of days ago of a Former Federal reserve chief who basically came out and admitted the Feds had "once again' bailed them out with our money .(This was very recently) Of course they didn't call it a bailout we just lent money to the ECB and told them they were free to lend it to "whoever they'd like" . So the market isnt going to crash in my opinion (We've once again "kicked the can down the road" "this time for Europe"and saved the world at the expense of the Us Taxpayer and their children . Also i'm starting to think Gold is looking attractive again , not because things are better but with the influx of cash into Europe and propping of their currency the rush back into the Us Dollar will stabilize causing Gold to go up in value (Short term play) 5-9 months , then if no "Austerity" mesures are taken by the European countries we'll be right back to talking collapse . Remember we've bailed out Greece 2 times already ...peace out .
Sorry Nathan, you are going down the WRONG ROAD Sir.......GOLD, STOCKS, SILVER, EWI says to stay
OUT !!!! be in CASH only.
As I stated in my commentary,
the MOST LIKELY WAVE COUNT now
is the BEAR count.
hey, I would NOT put money into any
of the assets listed EVEN with a
loaded gun to my head, really !!!!
And I don't care if our silly MORON
bulls take this market up to
even 14,000, it 'AINT worth the
risk......not at all >>>>>
CASH IS KING NOW and LATER....
People will see that, even if they
FIND OUT the hard way....
Stephen in Hawaii >>>>>>>>>>
Stephen , okay lets put a friendly wager on this . If i'm right about Gold (actually bought in at 1630 an ounce) You have to give me a free place to stay in Hawaii , If you win you don't have to give me a free place to stay . Hee Hee . I know its not really a fair bet . And then we better stop gambling on Scotts website or he'll come in like Jesus did in The temple and knock over our Money Changers table :) ....P.s my mom and dad will be in your neck of the woods 20 days from now .
P.s Dave Down Under i thought of you today because i work for Delta Airlines and we had a couple from Australia returning home to Sydney ...Never met an Aussie i didnt like . Where do you live in Australia ? And is it true do the toilets actually flush the opposite direction :) God Bless .
Nathan I'm pretty sure your right about the swirling motion of the flushing toilet. It all has to do with which hemisphere you reside in....apparently!
I must say I like Americans as well. Before I die I want to visit your great country and do a trip down the old "route 66", if it's still open. Just gotta remember to drive on the right side of the road....no left....right. Hopefully no one will be on the road so I can drive on what ever side I want yee haaa!!!!! Although that won't work well in Alabama. I've heard they get "militant" down there about certain things.
Nathan it just occurred to me that driving driving on the wrong side of the road could get me arrested on suspicion of terrorism. I'm sorry I dont want to be a threat to national security.
Better not! TIC!!
I am the Elliot Wave and you are the punts. Whoever abides in the Elliot Wave and the Elliot Wave in him, he it is that bears many punts, for apart from the Elliot Wave you can do nothing.
If anyone does not abide in the Elliot Wave he is thrown away like a punt and withers and the punts are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.
If you abide in the Elliot Wave, and my money abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
By this my stockmarket is glorified, that you bear many punts and so prove to be my stockbrokers.
John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

8.By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.
Oh, I see that Anon has taken on a NEW identity >>>>> to attack my
GO RIGHT AHEAD ANON........
scoff at EWI
and i will believe it ALL the more.....
CURRENT UPDATE >>>>
Stocks are UP again >>>>>
not sure yet what will transpire.
There is still a wave count that
says DOW 13,000 or higher is coming. We will see.
Nathan, I am happy that you respect
my opinions, considering i am
getting ATTACKED for what I believe
I still believe CASH is the place to be, NOT GOLD, SILVER, OR STOCKS.
I believe in Jesus ANON, but I also
do NOT believe that rapture will
hit with stocks in MAJOR bull mode.
so, you CHOOSE what you want.
AUG 1982 to now, no RAPTURE ??
stocks, up and up and up.
Do not get me mad Anon, I will
get even with you with my
own words like before.
Fishing or just baiting? (Kaaaaaaa)
BTW, I know some VERY NICE
Christians that work for Robert
Prechter over at EWI....in Atlanta
THEY WOULD not appreciate what ANON
says about their employer, I tell
you straight out right now !!!!
Don't pay any attention to them. We now know who they are what they are, and why they are.
They're here to cause strife and you're easy to get riled. They aren't worth one point on your blood pressure gauge.
Just let it roll off your back, my friend.
John15, Anon, and your many other names (BTW, just between us, and THE WORLD we know who you are :)
My goodness for such a self Righteous person, you MOCK the Word of God with your changing of His Word! Such BLASPHEMY! Not surprising coming out of YOU though...
Hmmmm...your invisible witches in trees are giving you such poor advise this days...:( REPENT! and turn back to the Light! :)
OH…OH…my goodness, what a coincidence! Two missing personalities, anddddd OH two NEW personalities ALL at the same time! Just amazing! One is promoting their own “writings” I guess you could call it, and one attacking dear Brother Stephen…aren’t coincidences just amazing….Wow…JUST WOW and we get to witness it…
yeh, Mr. and Mrs. Caver,
thanks for helping me out.
I cannot understand what THRILL
this person is getting on this
blog, but it must make them high somehow.
I am ok, but i don't appreciate the degrading words of Anon,
NOT one little bit. What I find
amazing is the INABILITY of this
person to reveal their true identity ??? I mean, Halloween
was A LONG TIME AGO, and yet
this person still wears a mask
of disguise. VERY STRANGE
Anyway, on we go, BTW I keep seeing
the number 62 on license plates
all over town when I go out.
And then I start thinking about
RAY MABUS, you know, the secretary
of the Navy, currently working
for Obama.......and Nostradomus.
IS IT POSSIBLE that Ray is in the
theater of operations right now ??
Near the Persian Gulf ??
and if something happens to him,
then WW3 is at hand.
I have no idea where he is now,
I just WISH I knew.....
I do understand a fascination with old Nostradamus...but I have to publicly reject it. Before being saved I was just as fascinated. While he was a very religious man, many of his predictions have been proven incorrect in at lease some small way...and we all know what the Bible says about any prophet that utters even one prediction that doesn't come true 100%. Considering how many "guests" we have here, it might be best if we stick to strictly Biblical teachings and prophecy.
Its taken a while of thinking about your EW theory. I do agree that its a great tool for predicting and measuring some things....public opinion and mindsets being part of it. But it does have flaws....as do any human inspired tools....but there is one huge problem...at least in my little mind...with reliance on EW theory right now.
That problem is manipulation....manipulation of everything...nobody that's not in on the manipulation has any idea of the truth. Information is being manipulated direct us in certain paths. The last 3 peaks and valley cycles in precious metals have been completely engineered for the profit of the insiders, and public opinion is being manipulated for many reasons.
So, I guess, what I'm saying is that I don't agree with anything except a strict biblical interpretation of events AND I loth....absolutely loth...personal attacks by a bunch of faceless, coward, self righteous bullies trying to advance their own agenda at the complete and total expense of someone else.
How on earth could they be a Christian and not expect the Holy Spirit to not give believers the ability to see through the impersonations and smoke screens? Guess that says more to me than any Faith they profess to have.
Just keep praying Stephen and I'm sure the Lord will keep growing you. We've all walked that "growth" path and its never ending.
2Cor.6:Our mouth has spoken freely to you, O CORINTHIANS, our heart is opened wide. You are NOT RESTRAINED by us, but you are restrained in YOUR OWN AFFECTIONS.
Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for WHAT PARTNERSHIP HAVE RIGHTEOUSNESS and LAWLESSNESS, or WHAT FELLOWSHIP HAS LIGHT WITH DARKNESS? Or what harmony has CHRIST with BELIAL, or what has a BELIEVER in common with an UNBELIEVER? 16 Or what agreement has the temple of God with IDOLS? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. “Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST AND BE SEPARATE,” says the Lord. “AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN;
Wow Sue, aha...aka Rosa, Susie, Anon to the third power and multiple others.,
You sure like the deception of different names as you travel.
My, my....and which nationality's persona are you gonna assume tonight? And in the same vein....whose good name, flawed theology, wrongfully placed heart, and other self perceived short comings are you going to entertain us with exposing as you demonstrate your perfection? Do we need tickets?
Why don't ya do it under your own name and quite pretending you're ten people?
Ya know, some of this might be a whole lot clearer if you got that log moved over a bit.
I, along with so many others I am sure, do so wish this unpleasant disunity would stop.
I see one of the primary purposes for this blog to be to draw people to the Truth. Let us lift up Jesus and it is His job to draw people to Himself. Jesus said :"But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself."
Then when a person comes to Christ, it is up to the Lord, to cleanse and sanctify the believer, which God does with gentleness.
The Holy Spirit is a Gentleman, as He does not rudely force His way in: Revelation 3:20 (Jesus speaking) "Behold I stand at the door and knock, if any man opens the door of his heart and invites Me in, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with Me"
Rest assured, it has officially stopped. I am moderating all comments now :)
Thanks, Scott, but I am also sorry that you have to add yet more work to your already very busy schedule.
We all really appreciate your time and efforts on this blog. I know that you will someday (soon, I hope) be rewarded by the Lord.
