I hope I'm just being paranoid
Well, what with the present experiment in Middle East Liberation and Democracy going so well that U.S. Embassy workers in the "secure" Green Zone are being told to wear protection, not only do we have Bush & Rice (sounds like an entree at Outback) insisting that the "military option must stay open" and Shotgun Dick growling at Iran that the Persian Gulf is OURS, dagnabbit, and must therefore stay open to traffic or by golly he'll shoot someone in the face, I'm getting kind of anxious about this Iran thing again.
What's brought it to a head is the festival of low-flying jets over our house this past week. Jets probably from McIntire Air National Guard Base (check out the creepy disclaimer at the bottom of that Web page). McIntire hosts the 169th Tacitical Fighter Wing, whose primary mission is what's known as "SEAD":
SEAD (pronounced: see-add or seed), or Suppression of Enemy Air Defences, also known as "Wild Weasels" and "Iron Hand", operations are military actions to suppress enemy surface-based air defences (Surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA)), primarily in, but not limited to, the first hours of an attack.
Just sayin', I don't think there are a lot of antiaircraft batteries in Iraq or Afghanistan. Iran, now, that's a different case entirely. These guys are doing some heavy training for SOMETHING.
Never mind me. I'm just being nervous, that's all.
