tightening up in the persian gulf
#1
Once again, sabers are rattling in the Persian Gulf.

Quote:A second American aircraft carrier steamed into the Persian Gulf on Tuesday as the Pentagon ordered military commanders to develop new options for attacking Iran.

Is this to help negotiations with the Iranians along? Or is it a response to the renewed allegations of Iranian logistic and advisory support to the "insurgents" in Iraq?
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.
