Unconfirmed Report: 2 More US Aircraft Carriers Headed for Gulf

Two additional United States naval aircraft carriers are heading to the Gulf and the Red Sea, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Kuwait Times.

Kuwait began finalizing its "emergency war plan" on being told the vessels were bound for the region.

The US Navy would neither confirm nor deny that carriers were en route. US Fifth Fleet Combined Maritime Command located in Bahrain said it could not comment due to what a spokesman termed "force-protection policy."

While the Kuwaiti daily did not name the ships it believed were heading for the Middle East, The Media Line's defense analyst said they could be the USS Theodore Roosevelt and the USS Ronald Reagan.

Let's hope this is not in preparation for a war with Iran. As I have said recently, a sure way of averting anymore conflict is to immediately impeach (or arrest) Mr Bush and Mr Cheney. Mass strikes, or street rallies could also bring about change.
