US Naval Might Blocks Iran Ships From Suez

USS Enterprise Carrier Battle Group

Ahh, now this is getting interesting.

Iran's attempt to send warships through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean has been met with an overwhelming show of United States Naval power, blocking Iran's ships from entering the canal.

Not only has the United States sent destroyers and cruisers to the scene, but also standing in front of Iran's ships are more US Aircraft Carriers than Achmadinejad has brain cells. Among the carriers is the USS Enterprise.

Well, there are at least two and perhaps more. But since a single aircraft carrier group can ruin an entire continent's whole day, the presence of multiple groups is likely more than the Iranian ship's officers really want to see.

Although Iran is lying and sending out media reports saying that Iran's ships are already through the Suez (think: 'There are no US troops in Baghdad' propaganda; or 'we seek nuclear energy for peaceful means') there is no indication that any Iranian ship captain is stupid enough to try to advance against such true power as stands before the Iranian ships near the Suez Canal.

But there's more. As the story from Debka describes, not only are we blocking Iran's ships from entering the Suez with our aircraft carriers, we also sent the USS Abraham Lincoln, another aircraft carrier to patrol off the Iranian coast.

Yes, it is finally getting interesting.

Let's hope that Achmidinejad is dumb enough to send his ships into the teeth of US Naval power, and that he is then dumb enough to retaliate....

Iran may get the fireworks they have been asking for for a very long time.

Let's hope.
