    When the US forces left Iraq, most were basically shipped to Kuait (sp??)??  Which means we have the bodies in place with their equipment.  The Army just does not move its toys around on a whim and I don't think all of it is back in US territory.

    Many of the extreme right wingers and extremest religious types have been looking for an excuse to take on Iran for decades now.  This may not end well for anyone.  If you thought wars for resources were done.... they've only just begun.

        fundamentalists and the extreme right wingers.  They've already proven that they'll do just about anything to reach their goals.  All they really need to do is get one of the battleships too close to a tanker, let the tanker get blown by Iran - game on.  The usual low information US citizen will be insensed by this and demand retribution when one of 'their' ships gets blown out of the water, even if it's collateral damage.
