Troop Movements

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?

I don’t know, but there are so many “coincidences” happening right now that it is becoming very hard to just dismiss them.

Meanwhile, the U.S. has apparently been positioning forces in the Middle East for a potential strike on Syria for quite some time.  In fact, the U.S. has had F-16 fighter jets and Patriot missile batteries in Jordan since military exercises ended there back in June

Jordanians are suspicious about US weapons and troops being deployed to the kingdom, even if Washington seeks to help its ally protect itself from a possible spillover of Syrian violence, experts say.

Worried about the security of Jordan, which is already struggling to cope with around 550,000 refugees from its war-torn northern neighbour, the United States has kept F-16 warplanes and Patriot missiles in the country since a joint military exercise ended on June 20.

A US defence official has told AFP that Washington has expanded its military presence in the country to 1,000 troops.

And according to the second largest newspaper in France, rebel forces that have been trained by the CIA have been pouring across the border and heading toward Damascus “since mid-August“…

According to our information, the regime’s opponents, supervised by Jordanian, Israeli and American commandos moving towards Damascus since mid-August. This attack could explain the possible use of the Syrian president to chemical weapons.

According to information obtained by Le Figaro , the first trained in guerrilla warfare by the Americans in Jordan Syrian troops reportedly entered into action since mid-August in southern Syria, in the region of Deraa. A first group of 300 men, probably supported by Israeli and Jordanian commandos, as well as men of the CIA, had crossed the border on August 17. A second would have joined the 19. According to military sources, the Americans, who do not want to put troops on the Syrian soil or arming rebels in part controlled by radical Islamists form quietly for several months in a training camp set up at the border Jordanian- Syrian fighters ASL, the Free Syrian Army, handpicked.

Nothing to worry about, right?

Sadly, the truth is that if the American people want to stop this war from happening, they need to do it now.  Once a conflict with Syria starts spinning out of control it will be impossible to stop it.

And it looks like the bombing could begin at virtually any time.

Dr. Roy Murphy is ex-military and he lives in Cyprus.  He has been posting reports about the air power that is massing in Cyprus to his Twitter feed.

As you can see, they are getting ready for something BIG…

So what do you think about all of this?

    Nice find.

    “Are we being lied to?” – No, I don’t expect so. Politicians really have the best in mind for anyone. They’re honest folks. Wars just happen, no bad intentions. Just like the weather: sometimes you have bad luck.

      The nobel peace prize recipient plans on starting WW3. Can we revoke these?

    While I certainly agree that a strike on Syria is imminent I think Mr. Murphy is exaggerating the airpower massing at Cyprus. The photo of the B-2 is a file photo taken at Whiteman AFB that can be found through a google search for the aircraft. Such a secretive and sophisticated aircraft that the USAF only has a few of wouldn’t be stationed so close in a foreign country when it can perform strikes from Missouri with in-air refueling. Even if it was Mr. Murphy wouldn’t be in a position to get close and take such a photo. The second picture is a US Navy X-47B UCAV. This again is a file photo taken during testing at Edwards AFB. Since the aircraft is clearly several thousand feel above the ground Mr Murphy would have to be airborne as well flying a parallel track to a military aircraft that would get the attention of everyone watching a radar screen. This new UCAV just made its first landing onboard an aircraft carrier and isn’t near ready to be fielded (there’s only been two built). Apache gunships are mentioned but their limited range and vulnerability to AAA and SAMs make them illogical choices for strategic strikes. Cyprus puts a Longbow right at the edge of its combat radius and wouldn’t be able to strike very far inland with a combat load and make it back to Cyprus. One tweet mentions F-117 Nighthawks, an aircraft that’s been retired since 2008. Another mentions the F-35 Lightning, an aircraft whose development is ongoing and cannot yet be fielded in significant numbers with trained crews to be effective. Make no doubt Cyprus is a logical staging point for Western warplanes but the claims and types of aircraft being noted make no sense and perhaps Mr. Murphy is trying to capture some sensationalism with that.

      I agree with you. And, I have serious doubts that a civilian would be allowed near a base, so that he or she can do a count of planes or take photos of those planes.

      As for the B2, there are only 20 of this plane type, and most are based at Whiteman. When on a mission, they are known to travel great distances. For example, this last March 2 B2s traveled 13.000 miles roundtrip (Missouri to South Korea, and back) to drop dummy ordinance on the Jik Do target range in South Korea. (

      I think an investigation into each type mentioned will reveal flaws in what this Murphy is reporting. By the way, who is this Murphy? I am not able to find much about him.

    I remember reading that for the economic mess “they” would try to inflate it away, with the “QE” and other Fed. shenanigans, and when that began to fail and “they” began to lose control of the economy then “they” would start a war. I do not recall if that was on this site.

    I do not like to discuss military planes, military troop movements, logistics, or anything that could possibly bring harm to our men in uniform. That Roy Murphy is openly doing so and this article is also doing so disturbs me just a little bit.
    It is one thing to disagree. It is another to jeopardize with lose lips. Please stay away from publishing troop movements, airplane disbursements, navy ships at sea, etc.

    Do I think we may be going to war? Yes. Because this President is in jeopardy of impeachment. And I think he knows it.
    So a war to keep that from happening seems very convenient to me. That doing so without the authorization of Congress without clear evidence that we are in an emergency situation with no other way to go might be just what the Congress needs to bring about impeachment proceedings. Not following the letter of the law of the land with many people’s lives in jeopardy if you don’t is just cause. But that is what the President pays advisers for.

    That would but the Vice President clearly in the White House making decisions. That should scare anybody.
    Or how about putting the Speaker of the House in charge of things,
    Look it up, I may have the progression of leadership wrong.
    That progression of leadership might be important in case of a war that reaches our shores in some way, manner, or accident.
    The other real problem here is antiquated laws still on the books that discriminate against males with a draft.
    Another political problem with this is all those illegal immigrants are not registered for the draft. Or are they?
    The draft makes them C1. That is the same as A1 for all intents and purposes. Translated: they could be the first people drafted in the event of a national emergency with us going to a real war.
    A real World War might last all of about 36 hours. But then the entire planet will not be very habitable. What is left might be underground for the privileged few.

    Our weapons of mass destruction are so good that there is no real defence against them on the planet. The planet itself will be radioactive for about 1,000-10,000 years depending on how much crap both sides throw at each other. Clean water might be hard to come by.

    Even if life survives on this planet it is likely to be life with a high tolerance for radiation. That does not really include us.
    So both sides have to agree to keep it to conventional weapons if anyone is to survive. Don’t see that happening.
    But say it does . . . Then the country with the greatest population will win! Or will they . . .
    Technology is so far advanced right now that there are unimaginable weapons out there that kill without radioactive fallout. That is just calculating the progression on how civilian technology has changed in the last 50 years. If the military has changed just as much then logistics of numbers have changed as well.
    The point of this long comment is no one wins.

      I wouldn’t worry much .. most of the pictures shown are several years old.

  • UncleB

    Should you be publishing this information? Loose Lips Sink Ships?

  • kmuzu

    You know the top picture is like seven years old …

    This war has been planned for a long time I think by the mulitary/industrialcomplex as a way to get us out of the depression. Too much debt and printed fiat currency…..won’t work this time
