MILITARY BUILD UP IN THE MIDDLE EAST
Russian warships are in "Syrian waters" outside the port of Tarsus in the Mediterranean Sea as reported by Haaretz.com in response to the continued Syrian unrest. Three Russian warships will reportedly not dock at the port, but will on operational duty along the Syrian coast to resist any foreign interference in the Syrian civil unrest.
The U.S. has two carriers: the USS Stenis and USS Bush presently opposite Iran in the Persian Gulf. They arrived on Nov. 12, 2011. On that date, there was an explosion at the Revolutionary Guard's base near Tehran that wiped out the entire leadership of Iran's ballistic missile program, according to THE TOTAL COLLAPSE.
I reported on September 3rd, that Israel and Iran both had warships in the Red Sea. This was prompted due to Iran's nuclear program. You are welcomed to go back and read that post.
So, we have war ships, nuclear submarines, and carriers in the Mediterranean Sea, Persian Gulf, and the Red Sea from the U.S., Iran, Israel, and Russia.
China is also playing naval show. They have ships in the Indian Ocean. They are strutting for India.
