The Big Week
Some of the overseas news media have been reporting that this is the week that the U.S. will bomb Iran. A third carrier group has left San Diego for the Persian Gulf. Pentagon folks are saying that it's a replacement deployment, not an additional deployment. But would they announce it if it was permanent? The Iranians are holding firm on the hostage crisis with Britain, perhaps as an insurance policy against attack (Iranians read the papers). Meanwhile, the U.S. may be routinely violating Iranian airspace.

Should be an interesting week in Iranian news! We shall see just how reliable those "foreign sources" are!
