The photo posted above shows a massive lineup of U.S. military armored vehicles on the Huey P. Long Bridge over the Mississippi River in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. According to Before it’s News, this photograph was emailed to them by a very concerned reader: “The picture below was just emailed to Beforeitsnews by a very concerned reader who asked that we publish this to get it out to the world. The picture shows a HUGE number of military vehicles being transported towards New Orleans and was just taken by our reader today, August 26th, 2013.” Barack Obama has pledged that the U.S. will not have any “boots on the ground” in Syria. If that is indeed the case, then where are all of those armored vehicles headed? Are we being lied to? Could they actually be going over to the Middle East? Let’s hope not, because a war with Syria could escalate into World War III very rapidly.
Of course there is always the possibility that those armored vehicles could be moving for another reason, and that reason could be perfectly legitimate.
We just don’t know.
But what we do know is that U.S. naval assets are moving into position for a missile strike on Syria in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. On Thursday, we learned that a fifth U.S. destroyer that is capable of launching cruise missiles is now joining the four that were already standing by.
That is a lot of firepower.
And there have been all kinds of reports about air assets moving into position for a strike on Syria. You can view a map of that shows the current deployment of U.S. forces around Syria right here.
Meanwhile, there are anecdotal reports floating around the Internet that indicate that U.S. military personnel are now receiving some very unusual orders. For example, the following is from a message that one of Steve Quayle’s readers sent to him the other day…
Yesterday my daughter called home. Her husband is an E-4 medic at Fort Riley, Kansas. She said that he came home and told her that starting Monday they are not allowed more that 50 miles from base, and this will go on through some time in October. She was really upset, he just joined and she really wanted to come home to visit for Labor Day. This was confirmation on all the rumors that I have heard about the Military not getting Leave on these dates!
So what does all of this mean?
