Breaking News: The Juniper Cobra joint air defense exercise between Israel and America has be delayed for one week. It was to have begun today 12 October 2009. This comes just after the cancellation, three days ago, of a joint air war games exercise in Turkey with some NATO nations and Israel, and just after a meeting in Syria between the Saudi King and the President of Syria, and just after the sudden announcement that Russia will not honor its commitments to deliver the TOR-M1 and S-300 missile systems to Iran (due to the Saudi purchase of the very expensive S-400 air defense system on the condition of the cancellation of the TOR-M1 and S-300 sales to Iran) leaving Iran 'high and dry' without last minute missile consignments already paid for. This also comes as a large explosion 'takes out' part of the Hizballah's South Lebanon command center and arms depot. There are a total of 17 advanced US Navy ships deployed to Israel, many with the Aegis air defense missile system; also the US Army has already deployed teams with the very advanced THAAD and the Patriot Cap III anti-missile missiles. The well connected DEBKA site says that "highly exceptional postponement" of the exercise "indicates something seriously amiss".
Is this indicative that war is about to break out with Iran?
