    I've talked to a friend in the US State Dept about this before. Such warnings are <i>normally</i> issued if the US has received unproven terrorism warnings, or if they think some action of the US might provoke response.

    The Yanks can always sew Canadian flags all over themselves like they did when I was travelling (part of it during the Gulf War) ;) I always thought it was so ironic, given their usual (loud) level of patriotism...

    I still haven't gotten a shake on GRREGs or the VA establishment being put on an accelerated watch, so it's a possibility things are moving ahead...but I always view the GRREG/VA thing as an extremely strong indicator.

    That and the amount of Dominos pizzas being delivered to the Pentagon.

    I wonder if said warning has anything to do with this story on capturing the oil fields.

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/fc?cid=34&tmpl=fc&in=World&cat=Iraq


    Could we do a Pearl Harbor here and initiate hostilities in a quick and surprise move without the pre-announcement formalities?

    Although unlikely, since we still have to give the inspectors a way out. To prevent the widespread damage that the Iraqi's army is capable of in sabotaging the oil fields as they did in Kuwait some type of mission must be presumed.

    I found this quote from the article interesting....
    "This is not about the U.S. trying to gain advantage by taking these oil fields or to preserve its own oil industry," the official said. "It is solely and most importantly to preserve the capability of the Iraqi people to stand up very quickly after a Saddam regime and become a functioning, capable member of the economic community."

    On the other hand, last week Newsday reported: U.S. considers seizing revenues to pay for occupation

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    I get mixed up easily but I think I would rather be compared as different from Barbara. That would be favorably?
