There's a very good - and scary - chance that the troop build-up is not to secure Iraq, or parts thereof, but rather to prepare for an attack on Iran. Whether it's just more saber rattling or for real, it means the Congress and US people have been lied to by the White House. Again.

if anyone thinks we're not at least preparing for an attack on iran or at least backing up israel they are fooling themselves.
we've got patroit missles in the region again:

and F16s stationed at Incirlik in turkey for the first time in a long time.

oh, and lets not forget the stennis.
as in the USS John Stennis.
the SECOND carrier group being sent to the region.

That's the point. If the government has you fooled, then they've got the Iranian people fooled. Hopefully enough to oust Ahmadinejad from power.

An additional carrier in the gulf doesn't mean much. It's great having it there to support a war in Iraq. But remember that Iran has a navy including submarines and ASW capabilities. Maybe it's no match for the US, but I'd be surprised if we left carriers in the gulf when attacking Iran. When the carriers pull out of the Gulf, when Bush sends two more CGS to the Indian, then I'll be convinced were about to attack Iran.

Those are abbreviations... but more specifically they are acronyms!
