Gates Says 2nd Carrier in Gulf is ‘Reminder’ to Iran
MEXICO CITY — Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Tuesday that sending a second U.S. aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf could serve as a “reminder” to Iran, but he said it’s not an escalation of force.
Probing their defenses, with cruise missiles from several directions, at specified military targets is what is neccessary. The Persian government has had all the “reminders” they need. They need lessons, now.
Would be something along the line of…Dirty Harry…”Do you feel lucky, punk”, or ‘Let’s see what ya’ got’. If Hillary knows we can (her words) “obiliterate” Persia…Let’s start now. “Humiliate” the Mullahs.
An old commercial on American TV (and I forget the brand, company or whatever…that said: “You can pay me now, or you can pay me later“. Later is always more costly.
I say we put their asses where their mouths are, now! What say you?
