Editor's Note

My mother is celebrating her 91rst birthday this week. As a result a lot of family members from around the world are visiting my home right now. So blogging will be interrupted at times. Military and Intelligence News Briefs and World News Briefs will only be posted at 17:00 EST and 18:00 EST for the remainder of this week.

Update 19:00 EST: 20 family members in my house right now. Food. Drink. And conversation. Here is an easy prediction .... I am not going to be in shape to blog today. Blogging will return tomorrow morning.

Just a heads up to everyone .... if true this is an ominous sign .... US Deploys Two More Aircraft Carriers Toward Korean Peninsula: Yonhap (Zero Hedge).

Re: the Yonhap report - not likely. Nimitz is off the southern California coast, Reagan is under maintenance in Yokosuka.

Bush is in Persian Gulf, Eisenhower off the east US coast. Roosevelt tuned up and ready - parked at San Diego.

Washington off the books for major overhaul. Lincoln, Stennis, Truman all unavailable - in various stages of refurb. Ford is in sea trials. 11 active CVN's, 6 of which are off line
