The decision to seek a Congressional authorization to attack Syria theoretically puts America’s war on hold for another nine days, but the Obama Administration isn’t sitting back during that time.
Instead, officials say that the USS Nimitz and its entire carrier strike group have been ordered out of the Indian Ocean toward Syria, with an eye on adding “capabilities” to the potential US attack.
The US had a handful of warships in the area around Syria in anticipation of a war last week, but this deployment is a dramatic escalation of forces in the area. It also hints that the US may be intending to use warplanes in the attack instead of just missile strikes.
The USS Nimitz and its group were conducting “support” operations for the US occupation of Afghanistan. It is so far unclear if the US intends to deploy any replacement for the ongoing Afghan War.
Antiwar.com urges all readers to contact their Congressmen and urge them to vote against attacking Syria. Click here for contract information.

They are ABSOLUTELY INSANE—-WHO WILL STOP THE BEAST….AMERIKA?
This hints at another reason for Obama's delay. With the British vote, we might not be free to use British bases on Cyprus for our air forces in large numbers and high intensity operations. Without nearby air bases for land based fighters, we would need a carrier. We have no carrier in the Med, and the nearest one is weeks away. We may be unwilling to do this without air cover, and unwilling to admit the lack.
That sanctimonious Kerry wants to kill people because people have been killed. This is priceless but at the same time ghoulish.
The American rogue leaders must have stockpiled a 55 gallon drum of lube for their imminent wargasm. WHEN will Americans get white hot angry ???? We are paying these maniacs to create chaos, and they are laughing at us !!!
