I have been focusing on events in the Middle East lately, not because there is any kind of a lack of other news, but because events there have the potential to change the entire history of our human race in a most negative way. We may well be on the verge of the Third World War and I am emphasizing this now. Hopefully things will cool down soon, however, I really doubt it. Tim Earl of Stirling

The US Navy has moved many of its capital ships into the war theater along with key NATO allies. Yet another USN super-carrier battle group is expected to be off Israel soon!

Military officials said the USS Carl Vinson arrived in the Arabian Sea on Monday to replace the outgoing USS John C. Stennis carrier strike group, which Iran last week warned not to return to the Gulf after departing in late December.
The Stennis was due to return to its home port in San Diego but the Pentagon did not say when that would happen.
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.
