Israel-Iran War in September?

EconomicPolicyJournal.com

Zerohedge is reporting on some very
interesting positioning of U.S. naval ships:

As the most recently updated naval map from Stratfor demonstrates,
the CVN 77 G.H.W. Bush has just entered the Persian Gulf, the first time a US
aircraft carrier has passed through the Straits of Hormuz in months. What is
also notable is that the LHD 5 Bataan amphibious warfare ship has just weighed
anchor right next to Libya: this is odd since the coast of Tripoli had been left
unattended for many weeks by US attack ships. And topping it all off is that a
third aircraft carrier, the CVN 73, is sailing west from the South China seas,
potentially with a target next to CVN 76 Ronald Reagan which is the second
carrier in the Straits of Hormuz area. Three carriers in proximity to Iran would
be extremely troubling.

Zerohedge goes on to report:

CIA veteran Robert Baer, the man played
by George Clooney in Syriana, who as Al Jazeera reports, appeared on
KPFK Los Angeles, warning that Israeli PM Netanyahu is “likely to ignite a war
with Iran in the very near future.” It gets worse: “Masters asked Baer why the
US military is not mobilising to stop this war from happening. Baer responded
that the military is opposed, as is former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates,
who used his influence to thwart an Israeli attack during the Bush and Obama
administrations. But he’s gone now and “there is a warning order inside
the Pentagon” to prepare for war
.” The punchline: “There is
almost “near certainty” that Netanyahu is “planning an attack [on Iran] … and
it will probably be in September before the vote on a Palestinian state. And
he’s also hoping to draw the United States into the conflict
“, Baer
explained.” For the betting public out there, an September CL call may not be
the dumbest trade possible…

All this is real interesting, but
here’s the real kicker: Economist Nouriel Roubini has tweeted the
link to the ZeroHedge story. As long-term EPJ readers know, I consider Roubini
the most connected man in finance. He has a small house warming party and George
Soros shows up. To ring in the New Year, he shows up at  billionaire Russian
oligarch Roman Abramovich’s New Year’s eve party. He gave Larry Summers stock in
his company. Within hours of DSK being arrested, he tweeted that Christine
Lagarde would take his place–as she has done. He is a consultant to most of the
central banks in the world.

I have never seen Roubini tweeting on foreign
affairs before, he is unlikely to be tweeting because he finds the story
interesting. The story likely falls in line with what he is hearing from his
very in the know network.

  1. IT’S NOT SURPRISING THAT ISREAL IS DOING WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. OBUMMA LACKS THE BALLS AND LEADERSHIP ABILITY TO PROPERLY HANDLE THIS SITUATION. WE NEED TO BE BACKING ISREAL 100%. YOU CAN ONLY TAKE SO MUCH OF EVERYONE AROUND YOU SWEARING TO DESTROY YOU, AND THEN BE EXPECTED TO JUST STAND AROUND AND WATCH AS A NUCLEAR PROGRAM TAKES SHAPE KNOWING THAT IT IS AIMED AT YOU. AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED IRAN NEEDS TO BE TURNED INTO A GLASS PARKING LOT!
