Here We Go

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has put in “be ready to deploy” orders for a select number of American troops should Israel need them, an official told Fox News.

The Wall Street Journal reported that around 2,000 troops were selected this weekend, but that number has not been confirmed. It is also unclear which exact units were chosen, or under which circumstances they could be deployed.

The news comes as the Biden administration has continually expressed support for Israel after the country was attacked by Hamas terrorists on October 7.

“We must be crystal clear: We stand with Israel,” Biden said during a speech last week. “We stand with Israel. And we will make sure Israel has what it needs to take care of its citizens, defend itself and respond to this attack.”

    Yup. Just waiting for “U.S.S. Maddox, Part Deux” to happen and then it’s “go time”. Just in time for election season. Convenient, hey?

      It seems odd to me that the two carriers they are deploying to the Mediterranean are one that is nearing the end of its service life and is a year or two from being decommissioned and scrapped and the latest which has a myriad of technical and commissioning problems that will cost a medium sized fortune to correct.

      If the old one is sunk, then a lot of cost of decommissioning and disposing of the nuclear reactors etc. is avoided and getting rid of the newest would likewise get rid of a headache and allow them to start again.

      It would be VERY convenient if either one (or both) were sunk and have the bonus of an excuse to declare war. Not that I’m cynical, y’understand …

      Watch this space, as they say.

        There is also news here in Germany that Joe Biden will visit Israel.
        So, what will it be: One President or two carriers
        or all in.

      They *always* use a pretext. It’s what they do. But yeah, no one believes it any more, so no need for it to be a “plausible” pretext. Any “pretext” will do:

      We need you to get vaxed to stop the spread. And we’ll fire you, lock you up, disown you, if you don’t… but it’s not madatory, and we never said it will stop you from getting it… or spreading it…. but… we need you to get it to stop the spread….

      It doesn’t even need to make *sense*, or pass the “giggle” test, much less the “plausible” test.

    Cool, we’ll sit this one out and burning it all down is a feature and not a bug.

    This could be the beginning of the destruction of the Western World as we know it. The US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and western europe comprise only about 12% of the worlds population. If only half of the other 78% decide to wipe us out, they will. Muslims will be the first wave.

    The young ones (20’s/30’s) are MASSIVELY against the Juice. Like amazingly so. Much more so than covid, much more so than Ukraine. They are clearly tired of the BS. I”ve mentioned this before but I”m by far the oldest guy on a non-political forum and the anit-Juice meme’s are brutal that were not there for Ukraine and def. not there for Covid.

    The PTB are misreading the tea leaves.

    It’s now or never for the Jews as they see it. They have always had the goal of “Greater Israel” and that goal entails ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians. They know that their vassal U.S. protector is as strong as it will ever be right now. It will only grow weaker as time goes on whether they try a draft or not.

    They will likely bite off more than they can chew and we could wind up with a global conflict. The Chinese, among other countries, have basically said that if they move into Gaza they (the Chinese) will assist in supplying Hezbullah and Hamas. The Chinese foreign minister said: “Israel has gone well beyond the scope of self defense.”

    Is the USS Liberty available? How about we redeploy that ghost ship in support of Our Greatest Ally™? I hear she has already done some duty over there in that part of the world.


      Hahaha Moe! Along with the USS Liberty I think the USNS Harvey Milk would be an excellent compliment to the Mediterranean force assembling. I think their motto is “If the ship is rockin’, don’t come knockin’!”
