Second US Amphibious Assault Ship Heading to Persian Gulf Area

Second US Amphibious Assault Ship Heading to Persian Gulf Area
3 Comments

The USS Boxer (pictured above) has been ordered to deploy to the Iran region.   It will be the second Amphibious Assault ship in the region, joining the USS Kearsage.

It is not known if the Boxer will replace the Kearsage, or if both vessels will continue operations in the area.

It is also not known why Amphibious Assault ships have been sent there AT ALL; unless someone is contemplating an actual Amphibious assault . . .

    Note:
    Many do not know that the Iranians, at least those that are of the Shia persuasion, hold to a strange Redeemer Eschatology which necessitates some sort of nuclear cataclysm as a pre-requisite precursor to the arrival of their 12th Imam, (Muhammad al-Mahdi) who, admittedly, stranger still, is reputed to be lingering at the bottom of a deep well somewhere in Iran.
    In other words, to put it simply, their Islamic party cannot get kicked-off until there is a sufficiently loud boom to awaken this bottom-do-the-well God-like fellow.
    Translated: this means that if top-shelf military buy into this, well, it's obvious what it means.

    We’re going to hit Iran, then all shit is going to bust loose. Pay attention to Hal’s recommendation for preps.
