DU's Sky Is Falling...
Nine U.S. military ships, including two aircraft carriers, passed through the Straights of Hormuz on Wednesday, the largest number of U.S. military vessels to enter the Gulf since 2003, the U.S. military said. It said the ships were entering the area for training.
--Hello, Five-dollar gas....
--The real beginning of the end. We are no longer the barney bad-ass world power that we used to be. We no longer have any allies that can do us any good. And we are monetarily and morally bankrupted as a nation. So what do these idiot bastards do, go try to start another war we can't possibly win with another country.
--Nine U.S. warships enter Gulf for provocation. How would the typical jingoistic American feel if nine Chinese warships were to enter the Gulf of Mexico and started to conduct war exercises?
--Yep, everybody freaked when they left port too.
--Congress, please stop the funding!
--Here it comes people! WWIV and we all have a corporate media front seat at the action.It's going to be bloody and America is about to get her ass kicked...
These comments really made me chuckle! It's almost like they're ITCHING for another war to start, so they'll have some about which to be hysterical!
These knuckleheads--and most the rest of the developed world--better HOPE somebody keeps the Strait of Hormuz open; 20% of the oil in the world flows through that 21 mile-wide channel. You want to see global upset? Just let Iran blockade it!
