BREAKING NEWS - War with Iran is Near

The irony of 12 U.S. warships and one Israeli exiting the Suez Canal today headed to the Red Sea along with the hanging of Iran’s Sunni rebel leader points to only one thing, war. It was also observed that there was a U.S. submarine accompanying the convoy. With the help of the Egyptian military the ships crossed with no incident. Whatever’s going on, it has Mubarak’s blessings and the fact that a Israeli ship accompanied them sent a sign of a unified Israeli-US force. The U.S. mainstream media hasn’t released this information yet since the articles have been reported from Arabic sources.

Arabic newspaper
Al-Quds al-Arabi reports that 12 American warships, among which one aircraft carrier, as well as one Israeli corvette, and possibly a submarine, have crossed the Suez Canal on their way to the Red Sea. Concurrently, thousands of Egyptian soldiers were deployed along the canal to protect the ships. The passage disrupted traffic into the manmade canal for the "longest time in years." The immediate destination of the fleet is unknown. According to Global Security, two other carriers are already deployed in the region, with the CVN-73 Washington in the western Pacific as of May 26, and the CVN-69 Eisenhower supporting operation Enduring Freedom as of May 22. It is unclear at first read what the third carrier group may be, but if this news, which was also confirmed by the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz, is correct, then the Debka report about a surge in aircraft activity in the Persian Gulf is well on its way to being confirmed. There has been no update on the three Israeli nuclear-armed subs that are believed to be operating off the coast of Iran currently.

Leader of Iran's Sunni rebel group Jundallah hanged: IRNA

Tehran: Abdolmalek Rigi, head of the Sunni rebel group Jundallah who waged a deadly insurgency in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan-Balochistan, was hanged early today, state news agency IRNA reported.
"After the decision of the Tehran revolutionary tribunal, Abdolmalek Rigi was hanged this morning in Evin prison," IRNA said.
It quoted a court statement as saying: "The head of the armed counter-revolutionary group in the east of the country ... was responsible for armed robbery, assassination attempts, armed attacks on the army and police and on ordinary people, and murder."
Rigi was captured in February while on a flight. He led a shadowy Sunni militant group called Jundallah (Soldiers of God) that had waged a deadly insurgency in southeastern Iran killing civilians as well as military officials.
Iran says the group was backed by the United States.
IRNA, quoting the court statement, said Rigi's group was "responsible for the killing of 154 members of security forces and other innocent people and wounding of 320 people since 2003."
It said Jundallah was "linked to members of foreign intelligence services, including members from US and Zionist regime's intelligence services under the cover of NATO."
It was also linked to intelligence services of some Arabic countries and counter-revolutionary group People's Mujahedeen, the statement said.
Rigi himself was charged with forming the "terrorist group Jundallah which was fighting the Isalmic republic."
"He collaborated and ordered 15 armed abductions, confessed to three murders, ordered the murders of tens of citizens, police and military personnel through bombings and armed actions," the statement added.
IRNA said he had been sentenced to be hanged in front of the relatives of some of the victims of his attacks, but the report did not specify whether he was actually executed in their presence.
