Bush is up to something!

Georgie Porgie is up to something!!!!!!

He now has the problem of Saddam solved by killing him before he could spill the beans on the CIA. Any of the other trials he was scheduled to "attend" would have afforded him too much of an opportunity to do damage to the Administration!

What he has planned next is not entirely clear, but he will definitely have to do something as time is against him. A good war is always a sure-fire (no pun intended this time!) way to divert attention from domestic problems!

The Pentagon is sending a second aircraft carrier and its escort ships to the Gulf, defense officials said Today. This is supposedly as a warning to Syria and Iran.

With this in mind we can expect some sort of manufactured "crisis" in the Middle-East some time in the next few weeks!

Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the USS John C. Stennis strike group would deploy this month. It will put 5,000 more U.S. sailors in the region, bringing the total to 16,000. (The USS Dwight D. Eisenhower aircraft carrier group entered the Gulf in December.)

Pentagon representative Bryan Whitman declined to comment, saying the Defense Department would not discuss future deployments, ship movements, or reasons behind them!

However, military analysts said the move was intended to demonstrate U.S. resolve in the face of acts by Iran and Syria that it sees as provocative, such as Tehran's pursuit of its nuclear program.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates previously said the increased American presence in the Gulf was a message to the region as a whole and not a response to any specific action by Iran.

"I think the message that we are sending to everyone, not just Iran, is that the United States is an enduring presence in this part of the world," Gates told reporters on a December visit to Baghdad. "We will be here for a long time and everybody needs to remember that -- both our friends and those who might consider themselves our adversaries."

As if the civil war in Iraq is not enough, God only knows what is in store for us next!

The good thing is, President Bush knows that his good friend, Prime Minister Harper, is in his corner.

If what I think will happen, happens, then don't count on it!

What I hope will happen is that our incoming legislature will put a stop to all this insanity.

As far as PM Harper, unless I miss my guess he is going to have a very short tenure as PM.
