Third US aircraft carrier heads to the Gulf

The neocons have not given up their plans to attack Iran. This could be an escalation under the guise of trying to intimidate our "adversaries" in the region. In any case, the sending of another aircraft carrier to the Gulf as dangerous escalation, assuming that isn't the plan all along:
Another US Navy aircraft carrier is heading towards the Middle East, boosting the number of the giant warships in the region to three, the navy said in a statement.

The nuclear-powered USS Enterprise and its strike group will join the USS John C. Stennis and USS Nimitz in the navy's Fifth Fleet area of operation, which includes Gulf waters off Iran.

[...]The US Navy has significantly beefed up its presence in the region recently amid growing concerns in the West that Iran is secretly developing a nuclear weapons programme -- an accusation Tehran strongly denies.

This is why Israel or the U.S. will hit Iran before the end of Bush's tenure:
Predicting that sanctions will ultimately fail to stop Teheran's nuclear program, Brig.-Gen. (res.) Yossi Kuperwasser, former head of Military Intelligence's Research Division, told The Jerusalem Post on Monday that time to launch an effective military strike against Iran's nuclear installations was running out.
