|A Nimitz-class carrier moves some 100 aircraft|
According to The Telegraph (from Saturday):
Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.
Among those states are United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, being a 12-day long military drill, the largest ever in the region, including three US Nimitz class aircraft carriers.
The British conservative newspaper also admits that:
Many within the Obama administration believe that Israel will launch a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities before the US presidential elections, an act which would signal the failure of one of Washington’s key foreign policy objectives.
It is quite hypocritical that these measures are being taken to protect two of the worst theocratic tyrannies on Earth: the apartheid colony of Israel (only regional power with nuclear weapons) and the fundamentalist absolutist kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
